Find a nice Alpine 7909 or a Pioneer Premier DEX M88...both run neck to neck in SQ but I sorta prefer the Pioneer over the Alpine...I own both

If your looking for the loudest system in your home town, I suggest DUAL. It's the best of the best.

Pyramid or Mustang, kinda hard to find, worth the effort. Try JCWhitney, they used to carry all the best ****.

I love my Eclipse 8053, no noise whatsoever, and never clips either...and you can get them for under $200 most of the time.

So Eclipse is the only head unit manufacturer that makes head units for SQ ??

Also, to Ryan.....What do you mean by "never clips" it's not an amp, it's a head unit isn't it? LOL, j/k...I'm assuming you're referring to the pre outs. Well, fact of the matter is that MOST if not all head units made by respectable brands will NOT clip if the gains on the amps are set correctly.

I concur, as I run a P9 combo and can honestly say it's stellar.

Best Headunit ignoring price? Alpine F1 Status.


Be ready to shell out thousands.
