Alright my Alpine took a crap after less than a year.It always ran hot,MF hot but finally partially fried.Powers up and CD functions as well as all the displays but no power to any of the speaker leads. I think the fan NEVEr came on either from when new but they don't tell you when it should come on. Anyways I'm pretty PO'd since my $79.00 Pioneer in my truck takes a beating and works great after 4 long years but my $300.00 Alpine can't take it. Any decent HU that are cheap that has a pair of Pre outs as well as sub out?

maybe you have a defective HU try looking for a similiar one to replace it with or just get a new model... what model alpine do you have?

Alpine is going to look at it under warranty.Hopefully fix it too.

so you had it for one entire year in your car knowing that it was overheating all the time but still you didnt move one finger to do anything about it and now you're all pissed that it fried? :uhoh:
well try the alpine assistance, ive heard about them replacing components for free that had even avoided the warranty...
as for the HU get the Alpine CDA-9835.. yeah Alpine again...
if you want a Pioneer get the Premier 860MP that,s the only Pioneer i would put my fingers on
