Our take on the Pioneer DEH-X4600BT

by Ken Nail
Pioneer

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

Add Bluetooth® to your ride

Pioneer's DEH-X4600BT CD receiver stretches the capabilities of your car's audio system with built-in Bluetooth. You can answer a phone call with the push of a button, then talk as if your caller is sitting next to you, freeing up your hands and letting you concentrate on the drive. The DEH-X4600BT supports Bluetooth audio streaming too, so you can stream music wirelessly from compatible devices to the receiver, plus control basic functions like "track up" or "track down."

Your music in your car

The front-panel USB input lets you hook up your iPod® or iPhone®, then access your playlists from the receiver's controls. You'll also enjoy control over your favorite Pandora® stations from the receiver when your iPhone is connected. You can use the USB input to tap into the music stored on many Android devices, while the front aux input handles just about any other audio source. If you're into your CD collection, you'll enjoy excellent playback of your store-bought and home-burned discs.

Find your perfect soundscape

Pioneer's MOSFET amplifier delivers plenty of power to your speakers, while the 5-band EQ lets you tweak the sound to match your taste. Two pairs of preamp outputs let you add external amplifiers or a powered sub.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?

In most vehicles you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility with this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The DEH-X4600BT is equipped with built-in Bluetooth ver. 3.0, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit.  In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP (Hands Free Profile), HSP (Head Set Profile), OPP (Object Push Profile), PBAB (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Pioneer DEH-X4600BT.

    SPP + USB Pairing w/ Guest Mode: With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the DEH-X4600BT without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings (your phone must also support SSP). When your paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. Up to 3 Bluetooth-compatible devices can be paired to this head unit, but nly one device can be used at a time. You can also pair your Apple iPhone by simply connecting it to the Pioneer head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display. In addition, the DEH-X4600BT features "Guest Mode", which allows you to add and replace a mobile device instantly to the receiver. Guest Mode is a great feature for a family vehicle with multiple drivers or a driver with multiple devices because it allows users to pair and delete devices easily without a lengthy registration or deletion process.

    Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The DEH-X4600BT supports wireless hands-free communication (HFP/HSP/OPP/PBAB) for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The head unit will display the caller's information and an audible ring tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker during an incoming call. You can manually answer an incoming call or have the unit automatically answer the call. The DEH-X4600BT allows you to carry on a phone conversation from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone using the head unit's external microphone and your car audio speakers. During a conversation you can adjust the volume, as well as switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode. Using the DEH-X4600BT, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:

    • Speed (Preset) Dialing: You can easily store up to six phone numbers as presets for speed dialing.
    • Phone Book: The phone book in your Bluetooth enabled cellular phone will be transferred automatically when the phone is paired to this unit. After finding the number you want to call in the phone book from the head unit, you can select the entry and make the call. If a lot of numbers are registered in the phone book, you can search for a phone number by the contact person's name alphabetically (A-Z).
    • Call Log: The most recent calls dialed, received, and missed are stored in memory. You can browse them and call numbers from these lists.
    Note: The external microphone provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone found on the front-panel of many aftermarket or factory radios. The microphone features a 13' cord that plugs into the back of the radio, and comes with an adjustable visor-mount clip. The microphone measures 0.475" (diameter) x 1.445" (depth). The unit is not equipped with an integrated microphone.

    Wireless Audio Streaming (with Song/Artist Info): The Pioneer DEH-X4600BT also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The head unit can stream music stored on your Bluetooth enabled device or music apps you have downloaded on your device. The DEH-X4600BT will be able to control basic playback features; Play, Pause, & Skip Tracks (app must also support). The head unit will also display your  music's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (app must also support). When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call.

    Disc & USB Playback

    Auxiliary Input: The DEH-X4600BT is equipped with a front-panel 3.5mm stereo minijack auxiliary input for connecting external components, such as a portable MP3 player. 

    AM/FM + Pandora Radio

    Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

    • RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible AM/FM stations.
    • BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6 of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM presets.
    • Local Tuning: Local seek tuning lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for good reception. There are 4 levels of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM. The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.

    Pandora Internet Radio (for iPhone & Android): The free Pandora App (either from iTunes Apps or Google Play) lets you play music from the Pandora music service through the Pioneer DEH-X4600BT using your USB-connected Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+) or Bluetooth paired Android smartphone. Your Apple iPhone must be connected to the DEH-X4600BT via the appropriate Pioneer iPod connector cable (130CDIU51/130CDIU52, sold separately) or the connector-cable that came with your iPhone. Your Android smartphone must support A2DP/AVRCP/SPP Bluetooth profiles and be paired with the Pioneer DEH-X4600BT. Your iPhone or Android smartphone will also need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. The DEH-X4600BT provides control over the Pandora music service and displays Artist, Album, and Song information.

    • Station List: You can select Pandora stations from your Station List by date or alphabetically (A-Z).
    • Shuffle Station List: You can listen to songs played randomly from various stations within your Station List.
    • New Stations: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing.
    • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
    • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
    • Bookmarking: The song/artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.

    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone or smartphone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada and only available in the United States.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Pioneer in-dash head unit utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The DEH-X4600BT is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power specifications for the DEH-X4600BT are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels
    Note: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    4ch/2V Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer DEH-X4600BT features two pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs. The unit's rear preamp outputs can be configured as fading rear-channel outputs or a non-fading subwoofer outputs with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment, and output level control.

    Subwoofer Control: When the head unit's preamp output is configured as a subwoofer output, you can select the frequency of the low pass filter (50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 125 Hz), select the filter slope (-6/-12dB), select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to -24).

    Equalizer: The Pioneer DEH-X4600BT features a Preset & Custom EQ. The built-in equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Powerful, Dynamic, Vocal, Natural, Custom 1, Custom 2, and Flat) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The two Custom modes allow you to manually adjust the head unit's 5-band EQ (80Hz, 250Hz, 800Hz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz) from +/-6dB. Custom 1 can be set separately for each source (except for USB/iPod/Pandora); while Custom 2 and the other 5 presets are shared settings used for all sources.

    High-Pass Crossover: When you don't want low-frequency sound to be heard through your front or rear speakers, you can simply active the head unit's HPF (high pass filter). By activating the HPF, only frequencies higher than those in the selected range are output from the front or rear speakers. The high pass filter crossover can be set to 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160hz, 200Hz or Off. The slope level of the HPF can also be adjusted to -6dB or 12dB.

    Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. Hear the detail, warmth, and clarity, the way the artist intended it, from all of your highly compressed MP3 and WMA files stored on your USB device, iPod/iPhone, and portable media players. By restoring data (especially higher frequencies) that tends to get lost in the digital compression process, Pioneer's Advanced Sound Retriever technology enhances audio reproduction nearly all the way up to 20 kHz frequencies

    Audio Level Settings: The Pioneer DEH-X4600BT CD receiver offers a variety of audio settings to tailor the bass, treble, and volume level to your preference.

    • Bass Boost The DEH-X4600BT features a bass boost function which can be used to enhance low-frequency bass sound. The bass boost function can be set between 0-6.
    • Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness feature to Low, Mid, High, or Off.
    • Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from -4dB to +4dB.

    MIXTRAX: Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX takes your typical music listening experience and creates a non-stop mix of your music with 9 random DJ effects and transitions, by removing the breaks and pauses normally introduced between tracks and replacing them with various beats. MIXTRAX is compatible with USB-connected iPhone, iPod, USB MSC device, and select Android devices. There is also a Short Playback option which limits the amount of time each track plays; select from 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, or 3 minutes.

    Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work in App mode or with the Pandora App for iPod/iPhone/iPad. It is also not supported by USB MTP devices.

    Display Features

    Detachable Face Security: The Pioneer DEH-X4600BT in-dash CD receiver features detachable face security. No face case is included with this unit. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.

    LCD w/ LED Backlight: The DEH-X4600BT features a single-line, multi-segmented LCD with LED backlight that offers a black background and white alphanumeric character text (up to 12 characters). The display has two brightness settings to adjust the brightness of the display according to the surrounding illumination. You can change this setting within the menu to On or Off.

    MIXTRAX Illumination: MIXTRAX features a club-style illumination that enhances the mood with a dynamic dance club-like lighting effect. As MIXTRAX begins, lights start pulsing to the beat of the music, adding an extra level of entertainment. You can choose different patterns of lighting variations from sound pressure level or low-pass synchronization modes. The lighting effects work like a spectrum analyzer, reaching peak colors based on the intensity of the music.

    Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns off audio output, but the clock display and button illumination remains on (you can press the "DISP" button to turn off). When the Clock Display has been turned off, pressing and holding the "SRC" button turns the unit off completely. Even if you have turned the radio completely off you can view the clock display by pressing the "DISP" button. The clock will then remain On until you turn it back Off. When the unit is On, you can select between the clock display or the audio track/tuner display.

    Demo Mode: This unit features a Demo mode which can be turned On/Off within the menu.

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The DEH-X4600BT comes with an IR wireless remote control. The remote allows you to control the volume, switch between sources, pause the CD, change the display, and adjust the audio. You can also mute the volume (function that cannot be performed from the front panel). In addition, you can answer/end calls from a Bluetooth connected smartphone.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Car Radio

    Written By Russ B., San Jose, Ca on Friday, July 18, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I have just had the radio installed in my car for about 1 week. I am very pleased with its operation so far. I have only tried the Bluetooth phone process a few times, and the process was quite easy. The reception was quite good and I was told the same on the other end of the call. I am not very savvy re: computer stuff, so I am still learning how to set up and use the various capabilities in the radio.
    Pros:
    The ease of ordering the radio, the speed and packaging of the product and the apparent quality of the radio itself. I'm still learning the various functions of the radio and how to use them.
    Cons:
    None so far.

    Good stereo for the money

    Written By Raz, New York, NY on Thursday, July 17, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Great value for the money, good quality and the Pioneer name!
    Pros:
    Tons of features for the money, I especially liked the Bluetooth for phone and audio. Even with stock speakers sounds much better than the original stock radio (2000 Honda CR-V)
    Cons:
    A little bit complicated and confusing to navigate and set.

    Very happy with the Pioneer DEH-X4600BT. The bluetooth was very easy to set-up, the installation was very easy as well. Crutchfield is the one and only place for me to buy car stereo products.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth audio streaming, which allows me continous music from my android phone, hands-free calling so that I can maintain focus on the road while driving. I also love the clock display.
    Cons:
    None.

    This receiver is a high quality product with virtually every feature I need. Additionally, Crutchfield delivered on time and provided much help.
    Pros:
    Great sound, Bluetooth, and many ways to adjust sound.
    Cons:
    Display is virtually unreadable in daylight. Manual is very confusing and in miniature print. Remote had a dead battery.

    Let Down

    Written By Anonymous, Harrisburg PA on Friday, July 04, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I had high expectations from this radio after all the positive feedback I have read, The main reason for my purchase was the blue tooth feature. I loved the idea of hands free calling with the push of a button, but the sound quality is diminished from that of listening to the radio, and sometimes cutting out. The same low quality sound is heard when listening to xbox music through my phone and blue tooth. The radio and cd player is great, but the player does take a little getting used to navigating through the features. I would probably go back to alpine or jvc players again if I did it over.
    Pros:
    looks good out of the box - cool features - radio and cd player works great
    Cons:
    blue tooth sound not as good as radio sound- digital display is impossible to read on sunny day, even at its brightest level.

    Great Stereo!!

    Written By Teddy, Tysons Corner, VA on Thursday, July 03, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a great stereo! The stereo arrived within two days and I could successfully install the product. I am very happy with the stereo!
    Pros:
    -You don't need to purchase the tools to get the old stereo out because they are included in the box. They are located in the small plastic bag with the screws. - The bluetooth audio works great with my iphone. I am able to listen to music on my phone and read what is playing. I can change the song using the arrow keys on the stereo or the handy remote. -There is a phone button that you can push to be able to select people in your contacts you wish to call.
    Cons:
    - It may be my old speakers in my car, but I am unable to have a great connection to hear what people are saying when I am using the bluetooth on a phone call. Like I said this may be my old car speakers.

    Great bluetooth radio for my older Z3

    Written By SueO, Broadway, VA on Thursday, July 03, 2014
     
    This radio is a huge upgrade for my 2001 BMW Z3. I now have bluetooth, and can stream Sirius radio from my iPhone. The sound and appearance is great, and I learned the functions pretty quickly.
    Pros:
    Great functionality, sound, and fit . The sales team and installers did a terrific job, and quickly. My husband's phone sync'ed up right away too.
    Cons:
    Since my husband doesn't drive the car often, he needs a review on working the radio every once in a while.

    Great Features, Great Buy

    Written By BenW, Cincinnati, OH on Monday, June 30, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    Overall, this is an excellent buy. The fact that it comes will all of the installation gear free (although more of a comment on how great Crutchfield is) makes this well worth the money. The sound quality is noticeably improved on my stock speakers, especially when playing directly from a cd or ipod/iphone. The controls are fairly intuitive, and it takes no time at all to set up once you have it installed. The sound quality of the included microphone is quite good, if you have it installed in the right place. Bluetooth connectivity is easy to use and has not given me any trouble yet. The removable face-plate is convenient and fairly stylish. I am extremely pleased with this product.
    Pros:
    Despite what some people say, the brightness is not an issue, it's just fine for me. Intuitive Controls All of the features work as advertised, and are easy to use. Decent quality microphone Great value for your money
    Cons:
    Display suffers from some serious glare in the sun - only affects digital readout, all buttons still easily recognizable.

    DEH 4600BT

    Written By Dozer, Hoisington, ks on Wednesday, June 25, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I ordered this unit to replace an older pioneer in my truck. The unit shipped and I received it in three days as guaranteed in the website. The install was easy because of existing hardware. I unplugged the old unit and wired in the new one. The sound is great, but it's too much for factory speakers. The EQ settings are bit different in that adjustments are made by frequency rather than treble, mid, and bass. The Bluetooth feature works very well. Overall I'm very pleased with the unit. Also, it was a scratch and dent item. Didn't notice any defect and works great.
    Pros:
    Installation Bluetooth use

    None

    This was a graduation gift for my daughter. She wanted to upgrade her radio in her 2004 Jeep Liberty. It has all the bells and whistles she desired in a new radio, Bluetooth connection to Ipod and Iphone as well as a CD player and hands free telephone use. Installation was very easy with the supplied instructions and all of things needed to make it compatible with her Jeep. She is very pleased.
    Pros:
    Nice unit that looks and sounds great.
    Cons:

    Written By Larry H., Baltimore, MD on Monday, May 26, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This is a terrific unit and a great replacement for the aging factory unit in my daughter's '97 Civic - especially for the price! Installation went very well - the Crutchfield instructions and wiring harness were great as always. The included face plate / surround looks even better than I thought it would. Lots of ability to customize sound to your liking with EQ settings, loudness & bass boost. Paring with an iphone was a snap and hands-free calling works and sounds great. Definitely recommend this unit.

    PS - pay special attention to Crutchfield's instructions regarding the dome light wiring and the splice you need to make - a terrific help!
    Pros:
    A terrific replacement for an aging factory unit. Makes the driving / entertainment / cell phone experience so much better.
    Cons:
    The factory manual is a bit cumbersome - not written in a clear, easy to follow manner.

    Great Value for the cost. All of the necessary installation components were included. Very quick and easy and looks great. Beware if you are using an amp to connect power to amp wire or you will have the deck working with no sound. Amp wire is blue.
    Pros:
    Great value, quick install, Bluetooth, remote control, USB, auxiliary input
    Cons:
    None

    Overall, glad that I have this new stereo. Had been using the standard Honda 6 CD changer, no blue tooth.
    Pros:
    Blue tooth capability allows phone calls and any audio from phone/internet, which is very cool.
    Cons:
    I really miss having the clock/time showing at all times. Display is very difficult to read when it's bright out. Still not sure how to use many options due to difficulty sorting out instruction manual. I do wish the façade of the stereo would look more naturally integrated with my vehicle.

    It does everything advertised at a very reasonable price. The display is hard to read in daylight. I bought it mainly for the Bluetooth and it's functionality is everything I wanted. Hands free phone use and iPhone streaming is easy.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth
    Cons:
    Hard to read display

    Love it

    Written By Jbrooks, Culpeper Va on Saturday, May 03, 2014
     
    Love the Bluetooth feature, have had unit for 3 months now. I installed this unit in my work van and it is great. It is a little complicated to get used to because the giant volume knob does not turn volume off just up or down. I am used to pushing knob to turn off radio or cd player. When you push the knob it takes you into settings which I do not like. Radio signal seems to lack in areas but that could just be my van.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth and USB features
    Cons:
    Layout is complicated to learn, it is very different from a factory unit. It could be a little more user friendly

    Easy to install - great sound!

    I bought this unit having never installed an aftermarket car audio system. The instructions, wiring harness and mounting bracket were spot on. The installation was easy and the unit looks like it was installed at the factory. Sound quality and Bluetooth operation are top notch. With this unit, my wife's old car now has hands free bluetooth connectivity to her iPhone, including voice commands. I highly recommend this unit.
    Pros:
    Bluetooth audio streaming and phone connectivity. USB port plays MP3 music and charges cell phones..
    Cons:
    Menus a little difficult to navigate at first.

    Over all I am happy with this head unit. There are some things that could be better but for the price it is a pretty good unit.
    Pros:
    nice sound quality from radio, CD and aux ports I like the remote and the relative ease of use
    Cons:
    the BT phone connection sounds horrible and it is hard for people on the other end to hear me.

    Bought to replace factory. Last year put a 700 watt system n with a processor. Lacked controllability. I have the same deck so I knew it needed it to clean out the system. System sounds awesome! Real clean.
    Cons:
    Didn't realize it was a detached faceplate. Didn't knw they were still b n made, LOL.

    Easy to install, set-up was super quick, and it makes the factory speakers sound great.
    Pros:
    Great sound, easy installation.
    Cons:
    DIN frame bend tabs on top can interfere with installation of the adapter into the dash. Bottom ones can get blocked by the storage cavity.

    Pioneer DEH-X4600BT review

    Written By Jeffrey A., VA on Friday, April 25, 2014

    I purchased the car stereo for my daughter in college. It was priced competitively, it was shipped to my front door ASAP, it had all the needed parts and fasteners, and it went in the car in about an hour, taking my sweet time. The wiring was straight forward, the 12 wires all matched existing colors. The sound was much improved, and the face plugs for USB and ipod were exactly what the honor roll student wanted. Thanks. I will shop with y'all again when the Pontoon Boat needs a stereo and speaker upgrade.
    Pros:
    Great fit. Great appearance and easy install. Sounds much better than the old unit.
    Cons:
    I can list no cons of substance.

    I have always been a big fan of Pioneer, this is the 2nd unit I have purchased in the last two months, this one was for my wife's car to replace the aging manufacturers car stereo. This Pioneer head unit brought the car speakers back to life!! The power this stereo puts out is phenomenal. The looks and color adjustments of the head unit are great, overall, no complaints on this head unit. The remote and blue tooth capabilities are so easy to use. The biggest and best part of this stereo is the ability to use the blue tooth and the mic to answer and make calls while driving. Pioneer also made it to where, when your in the car, all calls come in thru the stereo regardless of being in blue tooth mode or not. Great feature. Of course you could disable this, that feature is also available. Two thumbs up!

    I bought this for a 2000 suburban got all install parts needed with the order free came in 1 day. I connected all the wires and installed it didn't have any output called tech support talked with Chris he said it most likely was the amp wire not connected I didn't know it had an amp connected it and bam sound on. What an easy install total time 1.5 hrs old out new in even with having to call.
    Pros:
    I didn't have to do anything to connect my iphone 5 but hit connect it found it and asked as soon as I get in it connects and plays pandora if it's set for bt audio. The phone connects as soon as it comes on without any input from me. I saw some reviews that said it didn't work well with a iphone and some said it did. I have multiple vehicles and after market radios this one is the best bang for the money.
    Cons:
    None yet will update if I have any
