Hi all, Does anyone have experience installing an aftermarket head unit in a 2015+ Toyota Corolla Ascent Auto (ZRE182R)? I've recently had a sub and amp wired up to the factory head unit using the line out converter built into my amplifier but it sounds terrible. Attached is a photo of what the head unit looks like in my car. Do the factory units in these cars cut bass at higher volumes? Is the factory unit poor quality? I'm looking at installing a Kenwood DMX7017BTS (https://www.kenwood.eu/car/navigation_multimedia/multimedia/DMX7017BTS/) and also want to retain my factory steering controls, reverse camera and USB port. Hoping someone out there has managed to get an aftermarket head unit put in so I can get some advice/feedback on whether it's worth the $1,000+ investment. Thanks!
Just a post for numbers really. What type of audio setup is in your car? Ie, Sub, speakers, amp, sound deadening etc, how much did it set you back and give it a rating out of 10. I'll start I guess... I'm in the process of installing a soundstream 152hf sub running at 1300rms with type R 6" at the front and type R 6X9" at the back with full boot and door sound deadening. It's going to be running off a kenwood DDX4015BT double din deck. The sub I would rate at 8.5/10 as its from my old car, the speakers I have heard and I would give overall quality a 7 but for their price range, it's more like an 8-9/10. Sound deadening is new for me and I'll update with details of the effect on audio it has once it's all done. Cheers!
Hello all, So I've recently traded in my 2010 Corolla for a 2009 Aurion Sportivo SX6 and absolutely love it so far. The only issue I have so far is the stock audio system. In my Corolla I had a straight forward setup, with a 4 channel amplifier powering my 4 door speakers, and a mono amp powering a 12' sub, with an after market head unit, which have been removed from the Corolla and are now waiting to be installed. However, because the Aurion has a few more fancy features such as reverse camera and steering wheel controls, it would seem a very expensive option to replace the head unit to one that is compatible with the reverse camera (which I would like to keep). Firstly, does anybody know the sizes of the speakers in the Aurion? I'm assuming the front door speakers are standard 6 inch, and the rear shelf ones are 6x9 inch. Please correct me if I am wrong. More importantly though, is will it be possible (and decent) if I simply run the stock head unit, with my 4 channel powering the front door speakers and the rear shelf ones, and my mono powering my sub? I know many stock units will work with this, but I want to make sure this will work 100% before I get someone to fiddle around with it. Any ideas, help, or contributions will be gladly appreciated, cheers! :)
