i currently have a pioneer 2900mp deck i got couple of years ago and now i want to upgrade my deck. right now i have a hifonics amp and a diamond audio sub. since my deck doesn't have 3 preouts im looking for one that does so i can hoop up a 4 ch amp. im looking at a pioneer 6000 or alpine 9886 or 9884. i alsop get alot of engine noise and was wondering if i get a 4vlot preout will help.

the engine noise a problem that occurs in most pioneer decks specially noticable
when you're running your mids off a 4 chan amp but there is a solution to it

i would also recommend you the alpine and eclipse decks
im running a 9811 alpine and i'm very pleased with it....its simple not a lot of gadgets
but meh...im very satisfied for what it is
i would look at the 9855-9887-9835-9815 if i were you i believe they're all 4 volt pre outs
and have 3 pairs each

budget i have 300 btw im using a hifonics 2ch amp. if i get the newer pioneer decks such as the 6000 will decrease the engine noise, and for the amp wise will i be able to turn the gain down

With a 300 dollar budget, I would get the Pioneer/Premier 800 PRS or 880 PRS

The alt whine issue is due to hot swapping the RCAs more than likely. That's when you are pulling **** out of the amp or back of the HU while they are on. And should it happen still, there is a thread or 2 on here that shows you how to ground the rcas. That being said, I am leaning heavily towards an Eclipse Hu for my next setup. I currently have the 800PRS and I love it.

i think the 9886 has a better processor so in return better sound quality
i use to own a pioneer deh 6800 back in gr 10...my 9811 sounds better even
though i have less tunning features

x2 for the Alpine. The Pioneer has more bells and whistles, but ever since I switched to Alpine; I have had no problems with noise or sound quality.

Indeed! Alpine, or you could go the Kenwood Excelon line.
