Anyone upgraded their radio ?

If so can you tell me what you did, how happy you were with the results, and how much it cost.

Thanks.

Pioneer AVH-P7500DVD in dash, 7 inch touchscreen, I love it! Since my HK system sucked, for better sound I changed out my front & rear speakers for the MB Quartz Q/P series 6.5 F/5 1/4 R added subs (2 JL Audio 10W6V2 subs) & amps (JL Audio 400/3 amp, JL Audio 500/1 amp)

I put my Panasonic CQ-VAD7200U (7 inch TV/DVD/CD/MP3/etc etc) in from my old car, transfered my two 12" Alpine Type-Rs from my old car, will be replacing my speakers soon. Cost: $4 for a radio trim plate, everything else I already had, and installed everything myself

Alpine News from CES

The new VPA-B211A Vehicle Hub (V-Hub) Interface Adapter now makes it possible to connect an array of Alpine audio and video equipment to existing Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in-dash units.

Or the JL Ver

JL Audio Introduces a Solution to
“Aftermarket-Unfriendly” OEM Auto Sound Systems
Revolutionary, DSP-based “smart” interface makes almost any vehicle a candidate for high-end, aftermarket autosound.

Miramar, FL—January 7, 2005 — As automakers continue to abandon the stand-alone DIN and Double-DIN head-unit in favor of “aftermarket-unfriendly” integrated designs, JL Audio's product development team felt that a need existed for a high-quality, OEM integration solution. This product would need to deliver world-class audio results while not interfering with vehicle functionality, safety or reliability. To this end, the company embarked on a two-year project to develop CleanSweep™ —an innovative, patent-pending solution which permits almost any factory supplied integrated OEM audio system to serve as the source for a high-performance aftermarket sound system.

A particularly difficult challenge was dealing with the reality that a huge number of OEM head units now incorporate non-defeatable equalization curves aimed at correcting the response of factory speakers, as well as protecting relatively weak factory speaker systems from overload. Examples of these include bass roll-off at increasing volume settings, or severe midrange EQ to tame the response of OEM speakers. With previous integration solutions, even if an auto sound installer was able to find suitable analog audio coming out of the OEM head unit (or amplifier), the consumer could end up with severely compromised aftermarket audio due to OEM equalization (garbage in, garbage out).

With CleanSweep™, installers can take the audio outputs from almost any OEM head unit or amplifier, level-match and correct the frequency response, and deliver high-quality signals for aftermarket audio equipment. This makes virtually any vehicle a candidate for high-end sound (without costly fabrication, integration or radical surgery to the dashboard).
