View Full Version : Need a headunit, have some requirements

11-26-2008, 11:11 AM
I recently got a new car and left my old Alpine 7894 in my old car so I need something new.

here are the requirements:

Needs an internal amp
Has to have an orange backlight to match interior lights (BMW)
Atleast 4v preouts
Good ipod controls
Under $400 (if its like $430-$450 and is worth it, ill consider it)

so far ive been looking at the alpine 9887 which doesnt do full orange backlight and the eclipse cd7100 which does orange but im not too sure about the ipod controls. any feedback? i know everyone raves about the ipod controls for the alpine

any help is appreciated!

Eclipse is probably the way to go, orange isnt a very popular backlight color, your more likely to find blue. From what i've heard the ipod control on the eclipse is pretty nice. I dont think youd be dissapointed.

I'd do the eclipse cd 7200mkii.
