05-03-2005, 08:10 PM
Hey guys, I was wondering if thier are any good sony mp3 headunits compared to pioneer 8600 or alpine 9833/53. My buddy is a distributor and if I can find a good unit, then I was gonna get it through him, otherwise he was going to try to find me a Alpine or sony. What do you think about the CDX-M7815X or the CDX-M8815X? Thanks.

I have the CDX-F7715X ... great HU regardless of what the Sony bashers say. Check it out and see if it fits your needs.

yeah that is a good model, go with anything high model sony and you will be happy im thinking of going back to sony, cause im tired of my alpine.

Cool. I'm probably getting 50% off, and the new alpines don't have the specs I'd like, and a couple of people who I talked to who install stereo's have had bad experiences with Pioneer. I think a lot of the Sony bashing is geared towards thier subs and amps.

That's awesome to get 50% off. I agree their subs and amps probably aren't their high-points based off of comparing them with other brands in store. But they're putting out some nice mid- to high-end HUs now.

Sony kinda rhymes with baloney

Yea, I picked up a MTX sledgehammer 2 12 5500 box, a MXA 6001, dual amp streetwires kit and some ZN350 RCA's for 500 with tax. I wanted 2 10's in sealed box's, but that would have been $370/80 anyway, so I said what the hell.

Just to let you guys know, I'm getting rid of my 7815x. It doesn't have enough control for me and the display washes out real bad. No numbers for things like volume and bass levels or sub levels just doesn't sit well with me. I'll prob put up a post in the FS forum later today.
