I went down to the local store which is going out of business..i saw the Eclipse 8454 for $240.00 or so... I was wondering if I should get it? Whats everyones experience with it.. Any one have the full specs on it? I saw it had 8v preout which was nice..but the only thing is the only one left may be the display (which means it will be even cheaper then 240) so anyways im going back there in a little to see wut i can do..thanks

It's a really nice deck and that's a good price, I'd grab it up if I were you, if it's a demo just make sure it works before you walk out of the store with it.

8454 is an excellent deck. i have 8455 which is the top of line over 2005 and 8454 is top of line of 2004. virtually the same deck and the 8455 is an awesome deck. for that price i'd pick it up.

PLEASE tell me that you bought that deck!! :eek: I would have paid over $300 for it from an Eclipse AV!!!! One of the best decks out there I might say!!

240 sounds like a missprint

If the shop is going out of business, it could certainly happen.

That price is a steal, grab it!

wow im glad its a good headunit..yup im going back there in a few hours to grab it..its the only one left.. and the display..however my friend works there and said its never had power ran to it..its just on display (im going to have them run power to it to see if it works fine,etc) but it looks fine, no scratches or anything..so im getting the display + everything else it comes with (remote,etc) and even the full warranty through eclipse for $242 + tax.. no misprint

You are buying a high end eclipse, and you are interested in how the internal amp is rated? It is 8V, loaded with features, and, since it is an Eclipse, will sound amazing. Eclipse has never rated a deck as 50x4 afaik. My guess is it is rated between 17-22/channel, but you should be amping your speakers anyway.

I think the 8454 is much more flexible than the 8445, but if you don't need the added flexibility, you will be just fine. Either way, you got a helluva deal.

You should have bought both, wouldnt think it would be too hard to unload the 8454 for $300 or so. Sh*t i paid more than that for mine :crying:

Thats both good and bad. good because the 8445 like you said is like 450-500 and you got it for 300. its a nice deck. but bad because like jl said the 8454 is much more flexible and is great if you are running an active setup. but anyways nice pickup and enjoy your deck.
