I am pretty new to the car audio scene, well, new to really tuning it, as opposed to just hooking stuff up and hoping its loud :cool: lol I have an alpine 9855, considering getting rid of it to run the 9860/9861 with the h701 combo, or even just buying the 701 with the controller. What I am wondering, is it really worth the extra cash? Does it improve the sound that much? And the kicker, how exactly does it work? as far as hooking it up, and so on. Can you still run the 420 ipod adapter? And how hard is it to adjust to the settings that allow for maximum SQ? I know these are noobish questions, and I have done a search, but most of what I found were people that already knew everything about the unit, debating over which unit is better. Any help would be appreciated.
