View Full Version : CDA-9884 for this setup?

11-19-2008, 09:45 PM
I've been doing some research about the CDA-9884 and have read about the 2v vs 4v, ipod issues, etc. My question is whether this head unit will have no problems with the rest of my setup. BTW, I chose this unit cause it matches the lighting in my car and it's cheaper then the others 86,87. The setup will include an Alpine swrs-1242D 12" type r being powered by an Alpine MRP-M500 amp. I'll toss in a picture of my car too :p: Currently all stock. This will be my first of many additions to this car. Only 1200 miles lol :D

Oh and this is the thread that started it all:

That is a decent unit for a basic setup, depending on your goals or need to upgrade in the future you may wanna go with the 9886 or 9887. Also the screen color can be changed on the latter 2 units to red and blue also. good luck.
