Ok guys most of my system was stolen monday night (x789, 2 12" solo baric L5s, sub amp, and component amp) and insurance isn't covering any of it. I'm looking to build another nice sq system better than what I had, but not too expensive. I was just wondering how the 2 compare, I had the x789 for a few months and it was pretty sweet, liked it better than the alpine 9813 that was in there before.

So has anyone really compared the 2, any differences in quality, and are there any features on the x889 that would make it alot better?
