That unit does not have banpass xovers on the rear channels, as he's looking for..

around that price range it shouldn't be too hard to find an 860. if you can shop around hard enough an 8053,8443 and 8454 can be had for a max $300. awesome HUs there. Or even an alpine 9815 can be had for your price range as well.

Ok, first of all which are you looking for?? 3 way or what you listed? You listed low,mid-low, mid-high, high which would be a 4 way. If you're wanting a 3way then your choices are broad. If you're in fact looking for a 4way deck then your search is narrowed down quite a bit.

icetee said he got an 8443 for $200 on ebay. that would be an awesome deck. or you could get that 8454 thats on the classifieds for $250 shipped. basically the same thing as the 8455.

A little off topic, but what exactly is an active headunit and what are the benefits?

An "active headunit" is a headunit that has the internal processing ability to allow you to actively crossover over your frontstage with the HU's internal active crossover.

For the benefits/disadvantages of running your frontstage active, the search function contains all of your answers.

Yeah...I think it's going to have to come to that. Something that describes what active is, benefits/disadvantages, means of acheiving an active setup, etc etc.

But I just flat out don't feel like doing it tonight myself...LOL. Maybe tommorrow :D

it has active crossovers on it so you can control the crossover points for your speakers, just more tuning options so you can find whats best for you rather than having passive crossovers that use predetermined crossover points.

To simplify, are you running a two way or three way front stage?
