Re: Alpine KTP-445U vs Clarion XC1410?
The quick installation is a definite plus for the Alpine. However, the "U" model is not the plug-n-play model. KTP-445A is the one you should look at. Alpine's 445A will be at 1% THD at RMS power, vs 0.1% THD at RMS power on the Clarion. It's possible that would be an audible difference. The Clarion makes a lot more power with 2 ohm speakers. If you'll be using 4 ohm speakers you won't hear any difference from +5W.
