So I'm in the Beginning of Starting my system, I've got some knowledge but probably nothing compared to any of you guys. I Have Chossen 2 H/U's but Can't Decide which one. Considering I can get them both for the Same price thats really not a problem, just chossing one is so.

Alpine 9883 or the Pioneer DEH9500IB

I've used both and I really rather alpine, much cleaner sound although pioneer is not bad.

i've used both also . but i take pioneer over alpine just because of the settings and button features are easier to use also . just my opinion.

Is that the correct Pioneer model number. Cannot find that thing any where to comapre against the Alpine. The 9883 is the base model and does not come with remote even. For the price new you can get a much better HU with alot more options.

i loved my 880 until that ugly noise reared its head. :crap: So now i'm on the kenwood bandwagon.

I would go Pioneer vs. 9883. Getting more for the money.

So this seems to plague the 880's... From all I read it's an internal fuse from a bad ground or something.. Supposedly there's a fix by grounding the RCA's and chassis.

Pioneer has way more EQ settings.

Looks and sounds better than Alpine in my opinion.

I like both, but there are some other good brands out there. Look into Panasonic and Clarion also.

Thanx guys, and I would look into others but I've only had good exp. w/ Alpine and Pioneer, Not so much Clarion

Guess Pioneer it is :D
