Well After a lot of reasearch I narrow it down to these 3 Headunits for my accord coupe 2004

Alpine 9855

Pioneer DEH-80MP

Pioneer DEH-P9600MP

The HU will be going in here

My system consists of:
2 Sets of Focal Polyglass Speakers (Front and rears, rears dont use tweeter)
1 10" Diamond Audio D3 Subwoofer (Sealed)
1 AudioControl EQL
1 JL audio e6450 (Six Channel 450watt amp, powers 4 mids, 2 tweeters and Sub)
1 Navone 4 channel LOC




So the question is wich one? I want sound quality and a lot of customization in the sound processing department, if you want to suggest other models between thes 2 brands please do so.

You have to consider the Alpine unit has all the known problems fixed as it is a very recent updated model... remember SQ and a lot of DSP is what I am looking for.

Thanks!!!

from what i hear it will make it sound 'amazing', plus you'll get to keep the clean oem look!!!

just get an eq, and have total control

The cleansweep will help with flatening the output, but it will not fix the other issues that the stock Accord has. Plus you will need a seperate volume knob.

FYI, I just purchased a Eclipse CD8455 for my 2003 Accord. I have the "Premium" system and there was alot of noise using LOCS.

When I get the Eclipse installed I will update my SoundDomain page with info and pics.

Of your choices I personally would pick the alpine 9855. It will match the Accord lighting and has an input for using your factory steering wheel remote.

With that angle a fold face may not be the best idea,but I can't tell very well from the picture. I have heard bad things about the touch scroller on the alpine.

For that car I would probably choose the first pioneer.

I'd suggest an Alto Moblie Total Recall> than Cleansweep....and has tuning control(EQ/TA/xover/gain /etc...) using real deal AD/DA conversion..

will eclipse be A LOT better than the other 3 HU's? My amp can take a max of 8 volts so I should be fine... Do 8 volts increase the fidelity of the music?

I know i am a newb, but I am not new to the audio game. After looking long and hard at everything that is out there I went a little less expensive. Pick up the jvc arsenal line kd-adv6160. It has the video out for a monitor at the sound is incredible. I had an older jvc before this and I would stick with them. All the other companies charge way to much for a product that isn't so amazing. Sometimes you get what you pay for but i think alpine hasn't changed anything in the past few years as well as other companies. Jvc on the other hand did a complete revamp of their line and it will blow away most other "high" end decks. Thats my 2 cents though and don't hate me for it. Alpine, Clarion, Eclipse, And all those other companies still rock, but for the amount of money that they cost you can definetly get something better.

Good luck with your hunt though, and remeber that no matter what people here say it's all about what sounds good to you, and what goodies you want. Something you need may not be something I need, and vice versa.

Oh yeah you can also fit a sweet monitor into that spot instead and with the flap closed no-one will know you have it, and the cops cant see it.

I would suggest a Premier head unit such as an 860, I wouldn't use the 960/9600 at an angle such as that. That Alpine will not match the pre outs of a Premier deck either especially if you're having noise problems. A P9 combo would be a great choice in this case. It would give you more control then you could ever need. Its pricey though, but an 860 is NOT that expensive.

I would go with one of the pioneers they are really good Head units and they have lots of custimization......i like that 9600 though
