OK on to the new kenwood dpx592bt I scored to replace a single din kdc bt858 that I learned to hate to the point
I have ran kenwoods for years and the last batch I ran (kdc bt858 & kdc 958)
blew chunks. At first I really like they'er clean looks and 4 volt rca, features and my past experiences. After realizing the 858's x over isn't capable of lower than 100 hz hp I learned to live with it. I really liked the x over on the 958 but soon after living with these units I started hating the controls, too few and small as bleep. Unless it was night time I couldn't see bleep in the tacoma, every time I tried to answer a phone call via BT I pushed the wrong button, every time I tried to change source I almost rear ended someone.
after about 13 months of use the 958 sticks in error mode, about 14 months into the 858 in the tacoma screen started blanking out and or shut down.
You'd think I'd switch brands but instead bought the 592 and a x500 single din after seeing they'er new 13 band eq and 3 way x over. The 592 has big buttons and big preset radio buttons. Still can't see chit due to angle of tacoma's dash but I can now answer the frickin phone change stations and make a call 10 Xs safer, wasn't real excited bout playing with 13 bands but at last a HU with a preset equalization setting I actually like. In fact all the presettings are more in tune with any previous HU I've owned. Rock really sounds like rock jazz sounds like jazz ect...
So far likin the 592, no signs of weird anomalies yet...as for settings running the x over @ through, all the other bs like, size 6.5, sound stage on low, realization low ect...bs bs bs I usually run flat with no bs turned on but this new'r bs is sounding good so why not use it
believe me it made big differences
Note: cool 3.5 cord from Jeff still in use
