if your on a budget, get a pioneer. If money is no object, then by all mean go for the alpine.

Yes the 9827 is a good choice. I did a 9830 for my sis, awsome so I imagin the 9827 is just as good!

YES Alpine 9827 is great. IMO Pioneer is more looks and less performance. Alpine is plain and simple but gets the job done right. You wont be dissapointed with the 9827.

get an alarm if you want a nice system....or live in fear- if they want it, they'll take it-simple as that, the chance you take for investing $$ into a car- at least the thief cannot use it if they steal an Eclipse HU

Besides, a faceless radio is the greatest indication to a thief that you have much more in your car :idea:

lol...never once in 9yrs prior to owning an Eclipse did I EVER take my faceplate off and take it with me, and when I did removed it was under my seat

Aside from the fact that two of my past units went bad due to port/contact back into the brain

alarms dont do sht. All they really serve for is annoying the crap out of everyone. A thief would go directly for the alarm install be4 he gets anything else. Just as easy as it is to install the alarm, it is as easy to uninstall

Assuming the alarm is a cheesy one, along with a cheesy instal, by a cheesy installer-yes

It would take a thief way too much time to go that route on my car....more time for me to crack his head open

As far as annoying people, who gives a phuck?

I used Eclipse decks for a decade with no theft problems. Detach face decks get stolen all the time(with or without faceplates attached)...or so the countless posts to that effect on the forums lead me to believe.
