View Full Version : 9815 vs. 8053?

Are there any major differences between these units? It seems the masses would tend to choose the 8053? but why?

I know the alpine will play mp3s out of the box and the 8053 wont. I know both don't have internal amps, and that the 8053 has 8volt preouts compared to the alpines 4. But what else sets these two apart from one another?

A lot of people seem to like Eclipse's navigation through the menus better. Also, I think the Eclipse offers better xover point selection. Seems like the Alpine would only go down to 1khz on the highpass, and the Eclipse went lower.
