I currently have a Eclipse cd8445 and I do love it. The problem is that when I had previous setup in the track selection button would "oscillate" during long periods of bass causing it to possibly skip tracks.


I figure that this setup will be significantly louder than the last one so I'm looking around.


I'd like something that has mainly the same features as my 8445. But also has a very adjustable subwoofer control (ex. My 8445 went from -6 to 6). I did kinda like the fact that the 8445 has an 8v preouts. But that really doesn't mean too much.



Any comments or suggestions will be appreciated.

have you looked at pioneers lineup? I know the p6800/ premier p680mp has some really nice features, and the 680mp has 4v pre-outs. With that hu you have a pretty good amount of tuning capability with the eq's and such. It alone can control an active setup. They can be had for pretty cheap as well. I dont think you would have a problem with it skipping tracks, the knob that you would use on the hu itself isn't the easiest to push. I currently own the 680mp, and am happy with its performance.

I've looked into the 680 and the 880

But, for some reason active scares me. Lol

And I don't particularly need bands upon bands of equalization.

then look into the 680. it should be alot cheaper than the 880, and you dont have to go active, it just has the processing there for it. The 880 has a ton more processing options than the 680. I really like my 680, dunno why, it just looks really plain and simple i guess. I like the fact that all the buttons are on the left side except for the eject button. That lets the display be the focus, and not a bunch of stupid buttons.

I prefer the look of the 880 to the 680 for some reason.



I'm pretty surprised that some alpine guys haven't chimed in.

All the Alpines out this season are junk.

If you want a Alpine I'd look for a mint 9835

My 8445's subwoofer control is the non-fader

What range does yours go to?


And


Is the subwoofer able to be turned off?
