    It really depends on the features that you want. They all seem to have nice features to them. I can say that I have the Pioneer DEH-P9300 and Im quite happy with it. Just try to figure which features are the most important to ya. Good luck with your choice!

    Head unit: Pioneer DEH-P9300
    Mids and highs: Pioneer 3 ways and seperate pioneer tweets
    Mid/Highs amp: 1 MRV-T320 Alpine
    Subs: 2 Audiobahn AW1000X's in a ported box 4 cubes tuned to 30 Hz.
    Sub amps: 2 US Acoustics USX800D one for each sub
    Cap: Lightning audio LSD10 1 Farad cap with digital display
    Alternator: Propower 175 amp hot rated alternator

    ***Warning***
    Got rid of my US Acoustics USX-2080 mid/high amp because it made noise =/ The Zeb also dosn't stand behind what it sells

    It's got a nice eq it even comes with a microphone so that it can sense your vechicle's acoustics and auto set it up for you but it's just 1 way you can do it.

    out of all those i would say go with the 9300 i have it for another 7hours or so in my car b/c i'm taking it out to put my 940 premier in. the only reason i upgraded mine is b/c i wanted the 6volt output instead of 4 and the old p1r crossover network so i can run 300watts rms to my componets without frying em hehe. anyway i'd go with pioneer personally i hate anything alpine and clarion is alright.
