What are some of the better head units that will let me band-pass for my active set-up? I have a budget of about $300-350 right now. iPod integration would be nice to.

If there is anyplace running sales, of if there are any screaming deals you know of, just let me know.

Thanks guys.

The 9835 that I use lets you run an output bandpass and you can select the slopes. I use it for my rear fill and center channels, not fancy enough yet for a 3 way hahaha.

eclipse 8455, 8454 are the two that i can think of. Im thinking that the 8053 can as well..but im not certain.

Cool, sounds like a nice unit. IT has an aux. input, thats good enough for me.

Is that the pretty much the best I'll find in the price range?

yeah but it has no internal amp just to warn you. not that that is a bad thing. keeps it cooler and better sq.

I know, I'm running an active front with no rear fill. I'd just like to get rid of my x-over and that'd help a bit with wire managment.

Eclipse rocks also. Very good decks! I have used the 8053 and it was great. But again you will find me owning a 9835 :) Has anyone noticed they are going for more than you could buy them new now...?? *LOL* I have seen them going for $350+ and I paid $349 somthing for mine + ship brand new hahaha.
