Upgrading Stereo: Pioneer AVH-2550NEX going in. Monsoon amp staying for now. Thoughts
I have a 2007 Sky Redline (Nov 2006 delivery). One owner! This was before the power seats and bluetooth... and finally upgrading the radio.
I have Monsoon but no CD changer. Current system is underpowered and I want Bluetooth and Apple Carplay (for the integrated waze)
So my Best Buy browsing trip turned into a Pioneer setup (getting installed May 1).
Head unit AVH-2550NEX
And 4 new pioneer speakers (pillar 3.5 and door 6.5)
BUT for now I am not touching the Monsoon Amp, or the subwoofer.
Is this a mistake? just looking to cut some costs for now... see how it sounds and then decide if I need to upgrade those.
The Best Buy Geek squad deal is $200 for all installs for a year, so I can go back later and by amp and subwoofer and have them installed at no cost.
Lastly.. the USB and Aux cables, do people just let them hang down or do you wire into cigarette lighter or elsewhere?

Tune back soon... resurrection is taking place.
