The pioneer, yes, im biased
I dont like clarion and the Alpine is not my top pick either
It has a voltage meeter on it :D

all 3 are all good choices

me? im a Poioneer fan

The alpine...

I work at CC, and we carry the Pioneer on display. Nice unit, I just personally don't like the controls on it. The Clarion is also a nice unit, installed one for a buddy...but again I don't like the controls :(

So, for me it'd be Alpine.

Why not go for the Preimer ?
better warranty and higher preout voltage

07-04-2005, 08:53 PM
I was leaning more towards clarion....

My friends have alpine and it seems theres so many different controls and such. Like too many. And confusing too.

You can get the pioneer right around $200 shipped with a warranty and the install stuff if you pricematch a shop on froogle or whatever with the sounddomain price.

I may be able to get a deal on the clarion..

But it only has 1.8v preouts...

Clarion stands well behind mobile video/hu's. Also cd changers. There subs NO! :furious:

I have the 655MP, it has alot more goodies than what crutchfield says. Screensavers/ LED light/alarm blinking light behind faceplate. MaxiTune Radio, ect. ALOT of settings. Plus SQ is GREAT.

I got mine for 200 :naughty: . If u can get it lower than MSRP. GO FOR IT. I had alpine hu's before but clarion's got my back.

I have a old Clarion RDB355D (1997). (MSRP'd 500$) that was way the hell better than last years Alpine-9825. The sad thing was the RDB didnt have outputs so I had to wire a Line-out converter.
Even with the converter the RDB owned that alpine in SQ, hands down. The bass was even better with the line out, and I expected the RCA's to do better :crap: o well, n theres my story.

Go Clarion.

I dont think he needs SQ in a SPL car

07-05-2005, 09:42 PM
Lol nope

Not looking for the best SQ here.

Well right now carrdomain is having a sale on the clarion for 230.

Looks like we have a winner.
