One is Q-Logic and one is Sonic. Brand name vs. not brand name.

Crutchfield overcharges for everything. They are usually good for research or sometime they may have a good deal or 2 but you can usually get everything cheaper somewhere else

Q-logic also comes with a 1-year warranty. Probably not much difference in box construction. Q is bigger.

Crutchfield overcharges for everything.
Crutchfield charges manufacturer suggested retail pricing on everything - there's a decided difference.

Look at any given headunit that is available from both Crutchfield and Best Buy or Circuit City or somewhere like that.

Compare the pricing on both. They'll generally be exactly the same - only there's no tax on purchases from Crutchfield. That right there makes it a better deal than buying retail from a big-box store.
Now add to that the free stuff they send you with car audio purchases.
Add to that the lifetime tech support offered on any gear bought from them.
Add to that what is arguably THE best return policy of any online vendor in existence. (at any time within the 1st 30 days of ownership should you decide to return whatever you bought for any reason then send it back! Full, 100% refund...no restocking fees or any such nonsense....+ they pay for the return shipping.)
Add to that the fact that they pick up the tab on shipping should your gear have to be returned for any repair while still under warranty.


Looking at all of that it makes their price structuring make a bit better sense, eh?

It's not too likely that you'll find it cheaper elsewhere that the purchase also comes with a valid manufacturer's warranty...
