Do any of you have any experience with Digital Sound Processors? Usually they're an EQ/crossover combined. The reason I ask is I'm thinking about going back to the "dreadful" stock cd player. I really miss having steering wheel controls, Speed compensated volume, and all my DIC settings (I lost some by removing the stock radio.) I was thinking that the DSP might correct what I hated about my stock radio so bad.. the over exagerated bass at low volumes and muddy highs. Most of the higher-end DSP'* have a 9+ band equalizer so could I essentially "fix" what I don't like about the stock cd player? I have a pioneer MP3/cd-rw player right now but I haven't even played an MP3 cd yet, or a cd-rw. Should I just suck it up and stick with the pioneer, or would you go back to stock and try to fix its problems with an external DSP/crossover?
Pros Of stock cd player
Steering wheel controls
Speed compensated volume
Chime (can be a con too)
Better FM tuner
No face plate to remove everytime you leave the car.
Looks Stock (good for stealth reaons, and because I'm under warranty until next year.)
Cons of Stock Cd player
Over exxagerated frequencies at low volume, and non-existant at high volume
No MP3, Subwoofer control, CD-RW
More static/hiss because of high-level outputs
