View Full Version : Alpine avi-w200

02-07-2008, 10:39 PM
At the moment i'm running an alpine 9815(not sure if thats the rite number) with a 4 channel and 2 channel alpine amps and type R speakers with 2 rockford 10" subs.

I recently found a deal on a w200 and was thinking about stepping up to that so i could watch movies or at least use dvd mp3s. I was a little concerned about the lack of a built in equalizer tho. Then i found that a lot of guys run this deck with a H701. I am by no means into competition or anything but this seems like a pretty expensive tool just to get the best sound. Is it really necessary for your average system or is there a cheaper, more basic model that would work for me?

I find it hard to believe that no one has this combo.

That's a **** good question, I'm wondering the same thing. Does anyone know if there's any other DVD units with better tuning abilities around $600? Don't mean to threadjack.

The H701 is the only car audio product I've ever seen that you can buy new for $335 on ebay, and still see people selling used and abused for $320.

I wish there was a cheaper alternative, but for what you're looking for its probably well worth the price.

At least you wont lose any money if you decide you dont need it.

Ya i'm sure it will help sound a lot but i'm not sure i need anything that advanced. Not even sure i'd know what to do with it.
