I was j/c to what HU would be a good comparison to the older 9835


I can't seem to find any of them that are still in good shape and I really don't like buying used. I sold my old one to my friend and he won't sell it back to me lol :furious:

Thanx for the help

I'm also lookin' for somethin' that might have more features and better SQ as well

the premier 860 has a **** ton of features. 13 band eq, 3-way xover, time alignmnet, etc. i'd personally look into the older eclipse's, or try the 8455

Nah, don't like it at all and it has different stuff on it

I will have to look into this one...We sell these at my work. 13 band sounds yummy! Where do I find the Eclipse products at?

they don't sell online except for crutchfield (authorized) so you'll pay top dollar

I really like the voice feature on this one! Also what is AAC? Also how is the Ipod control with the Kenwoods or should I just but a mini to rca for the ipod hook up?

Thanx for all the help so far!

Eclipse has great features that are comparable (i think better) than the alpine 9835. although the 9835 is an awesome HU. i think it really depends on your setup (ie active or passive).

Well mainly reachin' for SQ but I like havin' a lot of features on my HU's. Not only stuff that will help me out but the WoW factor as well...

My next setup is going to consist of

JL Audio ZR components
JL Audio 300/4
2 JL Audio 13w6v2
JL Audio 1000/1 or Kicker KX1200.1

Then I'm also gettin' the Alpine PXA Processor
So I'm lookin' for somethin' that will make this just shine

well if you are going to get an alpine processor, not much needed in terms in features in an HU because i'm guessing you are getting the pxa 700 or h701? if so the processor should take care of all the processing needs and hence dont need much on the feature side on the HU. just need to find an HU that will support the processor. if you are looking for an all in one HU, look at the CD7000. 11 band PEQ with 5 bands to mids, tweets each and 1 band for the sub. T/A, 3way crossover as well.

but looks like you are going passive, so not much needed for a 3way crossover.

Yeah I was lookin' into the 701....It isn't final yet if I'm going to get it. But whats in my sig for the system is final.

But if I end up not gettin' the 701 Of that eclipse and Kenwood I have above would u still choose the eclipse over the kenwood?

didn't even look at the specs for the kenwood but you i dont think any companies can beat 8v preout, 55 ohm input impedance, 24bit DAC. yea i'd choose the eclipse if money not an option. why not get an alpine to match that lovely alpine processor?

Well if I go w/ the Alpine processor I'm going to be buying the Alpine 9857 when we get it at our store.

But I'm not sure if I'm going that route yet, it's a lot of work lol! Not sure if I'll have the time.

But thanx for the input, I'm going to be doing a lot of reasearch on this eclipse now and no I don't think anyone can beat 8v preouts, that just sounds delicous

Of course with the PXA-H701 you get 4volt preouts which is plenty good by the way. You won't notice ANY sound quality difference with 8 volts. Higher voltage just gives you a lower noise floor in case your amps are noisey with the gains up which I doubt if you're getting all JL amps.

However if you really want to step up in quality and take full advantage of the 701 processor you might want to go with the 9860 which steps you up to an "optical" digital output so you're keeping the signal digital all the way to the preouts. The 9860 also makes it possible to control the PXA-H701 processor without having to buy the RUX-C701 controller which in the past was the only way to fully control the processor.

Just food for thought.:)

agreed on getting the 9860 because you can fully control the h701 through it instead of buying the controller.
