Alright, originally I wanted a pioneer H/U, click but this dumbass at a shop insisted I get a jensen 9423 cause "it was better" He said pioneer is crap. I said I wanted to stick with pioneer cause my car came with pioneer. He made faces and went on saying he did a lot of installs with it, and a lot of people like it, and this and that, and bragging how it's cheaper. Well that's the last time I let someone change my mind on what I want. I can't STAND this H/U. First off it doesn't fit all the way in. click Second the screens look like they were made in the 1990s, and it loads so ****ing slow! It has no controls for bass or treble like the stock does. It just has an EQ. I really don't know how to mess with that crap. It's definitely NOT louder than the stock radio. I can barely hear my stock sub with it!!! :mad:!! Is there ANYTHING I can do other than get a better H/U, to give my self a better experience with this H/U? How can I make my sound as loud, if not louder than stock, and make my sub boom with the bass like it did with stock H/U? Do I need a better amp or something?? I mean I'm using stock amp... god I really wish I got the poineer instead... :cry:

we don't have a walmart and i think my dad got it online (1 of my xmas presents i asked for) besides who's gonna accept an already installed unit put back in the box? I don't even have the box it came in like with the picture of it n shit anymore. same for all the accessories for it like blue tooth. and for some odd reason, if i put the stock radio back, the radio wont work anymore :blink:

well with 13 watts RMS, you're not going to be getting a whole lot of anything out of your speakers. Do you have your speakers wired through the speaker outs, or the RCA outs?

i have stock speakers they arent wired to anything. i plugged the wires on the H/U into the GMOS 04 lan thing. there's no way the stock speakers suck. with stock radio those shits are so loud i cant even blast it full volume, and my sub hits hard! i swear i'm about to go back to stock... :blink:

Then why are you complaining about the headunit... U said you wanted the Pioneer but from what ou are saying, the guy talked you out of it. How can he talk you out of it when you dnt have the money for it. You talked yourself out of it. The Jensen is worst than my stock headunit in my grandmas 92 Buick Lesabre!! Save the $$ n get the Pioneer. Until then............. Put the stocker back in and sell the Jensen on craigslist!!!

question... our factory amp... does it power our sub, or interior speakers? and we only have 1 stock amp right? cause my friend said getting an amp might just solve my problem if we can figure out what the stock amp powers (by friend i don't mean that shop guy lol)
