I will be buying a new HU tomorrow. Want the 9884, but it only has a 2v preouts. So, would it be worth it to step up 65 ish dollars and get 4v preouts with the 9886?

As far as a comparison goes I don't know
But I can tell you that I just got my 9884 and it's a great headunit, looks great too, Ipod works well with it aswell.

Yeah, my old 9856 had 2v and i was happy with it. I dont really understand the whole voltage thing so I was just curious if it makes a difference. because i'm pretty strapped for cash at the moment. But ive wanted at the 9884 since it came out.

the 4 volts will make it where your gains dont have to be as high and sometimes sends a better signal as well to the amp

thats up to you to decide. ive found that when it comes to car audio its better to be patient and save for what you are sure you want. that way ur not sitting there wondering if what you settled for could of sounded better if you woulda just been patient.

at the end of the day its a big waste of money if you spend money for something ur not happy with

very true. and i know lower gains means lower temps. and since my amp will be under my seat...... top and bottom both touching the seat i think it could get kinda hot....

you also get USB control on the 9886 which is also worth it
