Everywhere I look i'm told to go alpine, but I realy like the new Jvc KD-SHX700. What i'm looking for is mostly that is dosent skip at all, but it would be nice to have something that looks good to. Would I be makeing a big mistake buying the Jvc or should I buy an alpine or something else, i'm looking to spend under 500$

Wow under 500? U got a very very very wide selection to chose from. I myself would recommend an alpine deck. Im not sure about exactly how cheap you can get it but a CDA-9835 or a CDA-7998 would be extremely nice

alpine=online

eclipse can not always be had because the retailres are so far away.

but my brother got a eclipse CD5444 from a retailer for $430 installed, and i think thats pretty **** good. i have a cheaper alpine CDA-9827- and it plays my MP3 discs @ 325kb\s with no problems, never had it skip.

thats my $.02

Alpine only legitely through Crutchfield...Although I do see your point about having issues with local shops selling Eclipse.

thats where i got mine ;)

free shipping + 3 year warranty + free installation materials (car specific) + free 24\7 tech support + free installation instructions (car specific) + free visor-mount CD holder!!!

for 260 new (cda-9827) thats a freaking deal. ~$40 for the install equpment (not car specific and crappy freaking "insert tab A into slot c-2" instructions) and then a few hours trying to figure out how to put that crappy install kit together, then the HU breaking because you got it on ebay and you have to buy a new one. i mean come on.

its worth it. for HU's - crutchfield is incredible.

a buddy of mine has a ford tarus, and the dash-kit costs $75+ because its "custom" for the car. and this is online. crutchfield gives it FOR FREE. and thats simply amazing.

/end rant.

Not for nothing, I dont go by what some dumb, non-high school diploma having fuccing rapper swears by....thats whats wrong with the car audio crowd, Xzibit tells pimple-faced, permit-having kids that Audiobahn is what he rocks, and they 'follow the leader'- I'm not a follower,and I chose to be a leader and judge things for myself, learn to be a critic.....

Rappers do more harm than good when they rap about what they use....believe that

On top of that, I doubt he's speaking on your $200 deck :p:

I'm suprised that you didn't get a giddy that they mentioned Zapco :p: Honestly, I'm quite impressed that they'd know who Zapco is.........considering they are pretty "blingless" and not totally mainstream

LOL well no thats not my main reason for buying it. Just playing around. IT WAS A JOKE! But I mean I would choose performance over looks anytime. I know alpines look pretty plain but they do their job pretty well. Also I myself havent tested out an eclipse deck but from what I heard is that they have some good eq features and their display is better. But then again you can always add an eq outside and it would be better off than an integrated one.

Also a side note to squeak and 3.5, I do not listen to any, absolutely no mainstream music. I am not a hop in the back of a wagon type. **** g-unit, eminem, the game, jay z and every other fake P.O.S. on the tv or radio. Done Deal
