How are your aftermarket Decks doing?

My OEM deck glitches a few times since I have had my GC so I'm heading to the dealer tomorrow to see what they will do. I'm still under warranty so no big deal.
This is merely a formality as I always planned on swapping the system in the long run.

I've done tons of reading and there have been enough system upgrades that seem to be trouble free but I thought I'd put this out there to you audio upgrade folks and get a feel for how your aftermarket decks are holding up...Eric I mean, how your GCs are holding up?

I'll be installing a Kenwood DNZ9990HD with a PAC RP4-CH11 adapter.
Any codes or lights since your installs?

I have actually only found a couple threads referring to issues but they seemed to be early on.

Re: How are your aftermarket Decks doing?

I forgot to add and I'm sure someone will ask so...

The rest of the system will come later. The plan is a JL HD900/5 (maybe even two of them depending on how I like the one), Focal or Hybrid audio 3 way set up front, rears are questionable as I never ran them in my old rig and subs will be JL 13TW5-3 (not sure if I'll run one or two, really depends on what I can fit in the space I'm allowing myself).

Re: How are your aftermarket Decks doing?

I've done a overhaul of the audio system in my WK2. Swapped out the stock head unit for a Pioneer AVH-P2400BT, swapped out all the stock speakers for true Alpine speakers. Installed an aftermarket Alpine amp. System is really kick a$$ now. All that remains is to install a sub. That will come later though. I've spent enough money as is lol.

I highly recommend disconnecting the battery when you install the head unit. I forgot to do so and EVIC kept switching to Spanish on it's own lol. Disconnected the battery, reconnected and now it's fine.
