From CES 2014… The New Pioneer NEX Headunits!

Sonic Electronix is back from CES 2014! Otherwise known as the Consumer Electronics Show, we were able to attend this famous convention and bring back information on all sorts of products that some of our favorite brands will be releasing. One of these brands is of course Pioneer. And this year for CES, they previewed an impressive new product line of head units called NEX, or Networked Entertainment eXperience. This series contains five different head units and they all have brand new technologies, expanding options, and features! Since this series of high-tech head units are set to be released in February or March of this year, we want to take this time to tell you what Pioneer has in store for ya’ll!

With NEX, Pioneer has changed the game for how you think of a head unit.  Everything from the powerful new user interface to the extensive amount of features they include, is sure to vastly improve how you listen to music on the go. All of the receivers were designed for today’s smartphone-driven lifestyle and will make your life a whole lot easier!

 The flagship, top of the line model of the NEX series is the AVIC-8000NEX. Not only was it designed with a sleek, easy to use interface, but it has every feature you could possibly imagine in an in-dash receiver. This unit was designed to fully integrate with both Android and iPhone, so you can listen to music and use your apps right from the 7″ WVGA touchscreen display. It has a built-in traffic tuner, dual USB inputs, HDMI AV input, and all of the high-tech, key technologies you see here: 

The rest of the NEX units in this series off all the same great features with a couple exceptions: a couple of the NEX series head units have smaller touchscreens (6.1″), one of the head units does not come with built-in navigation, and a couple of the others do not have the traffic tuner. Be sure to check out the full line up down below.

The NEX series of in-dash receivers bridge the gap between smartphone tethered products and traditional multimedia receivers. They are the perfect product for anyone who wants to experience the ultimate car audio receivers. Until next time, we’ll see ya’ll later.

How to Shop Sonic Electronix – Part 1

So you’re new to and you think “man, I wish I could get a guided tour of this place!” Or maybe you aren’t new, but haven’t done much exploring, we will give you a step by step of where to go once you’re on our home page.

At Sonic, as you’ve probably gathered by just looking at the home page, we sell some pretty awesome things, and you’re probably going to want to buy some of them. The best way to start is by creating your very own free(!) Sonic Electronix account at the top of the page under ‘My Account’. This way we can send you all the information you need about the things you’re inevitably going to buy from us (we sell cool stuff, remember?).

Account Creation

Once you’ve created your account and bought that new subwoofer or pair of headphones to make all your friends jealous, you can easily track you orders by clicking the ‘Track Order’ link so you’ll know where your package is at all times. We want you to know where your package is at all times. If you ever have a question about your order, or anything else, you should call the Sonic Expert service number at the very top of the page. We even have a link to our help center to answer any other questions you might have.

For those who aren’t too sure what they’re looking for, our ‘Research & How to’ link takes you to the Sonic knowledge base where we take you through everything you need to know about buying that car amplifier or stereo that you’ve always dreamed of having.

Experts and How to

Don’t worry, our knowledge base covers a lot more than amps and stereos. And if we don’t have a guide you’re looking for, you should call or email us and ask about it (hey, you already know the number!). Our return policy is also up at the top of the page, it’s a pretty important thing to know about: We stand by our products and give you a 60-day money-back guarantee and a 1 year warranty on almost everything we sell.

After all that, you might think, “alright, I’ve got this home page down, now let me go check some stuff out.” But wait, there’s more! If you stopped here, you might not find out about our liquidation station where you can buy open box and refurbished products at a huge discount, and who doesn’t want a discount? We also have a newsletter that you can sign up for even MORE discounts, coupons and special savings! Why wouldn’t you do that, do you not like saving money? We even have an entire page dedicated to coupons just for you!

Think that’s it? Nope. Sonic has a forum for you to log into and interact with both us and other customers, they are a great resource for you to use if you have any questions about your new car DVD players, headphones, car alarms…yep, sell all of those too.

Now, look, you’re smart, chances are you’ve got this newfangled ‘internet’ thing figured out by now, but bear with me, we’re almost done. Down at the very bottom of the page we have links to everything you could dream of, short of maybe the meaning of life, we aren’t going to give that one away that easily. If you want to watch any of our numerous product videos, peruse our FAQs, blog, speaker fit guide, our most popular brand searches or information about Sonic Electronix the company, our links are simple and easy to follow.

Savings Year-Round!

When purchasing your car stereo you need to make sure you get the correct installation accessories. Sonic Electronix offers huge discounts from the manufacturer retail price on installation accessories. When shopping for your in-dash receiver, be sure to enter your vehicle information to see if you are eligible for a free or discounted dash kit, wiring harness and/or antenna if needed.

This offer is valid for standard kits and harness that are priced under $12.99, while the premium kits and harnesses priced above $12.99 are discounted with a rebate. With this outstanding offer, you can save on the products you buy and the installation! Keep in mind, this offer is not available for all vehicles.

Dash kits, harnesses and other necessary accessories are available for most vehicles (but once again not all) and allow you to have an easy installation for your new stereo system. Some vehicles require premium or specialty accessories such as an AM/FM antenna adapter to convert the factory antenna to the standard aftermarket antenna. Other vehicles may not require a dash kit or wiring harness at all in order to complete the installation so be sure to contact us with any questions or quickly send our customer service representatives an email so we can provide you with a list of the installation accessories for your vehicle.
