    HeadUnits.....

    Alright heres the deal lol.... I really want a headunit badly right now cause the radio is just freaking boring now lol. I have around like 200$ i would say in my pocket right now. What would you do? Save up to get an Alpine 9813, or 7894? Or buy a Panasonic DF-602U? Im not exactly sure what to do. The Alpine's are both around 300$ and the panasonic is about 199$. Any help is grealy appericated.

    Also this should be noted. Once i get my job, and get some money, im going to get some Alpine Type Xs(SPX) component speakers, so what headunit would be good with this? Also im going to be getting a 12" XXX and a RE 35D1 amp. So anyone please give me some advice.

    alpine's known around to be newbie un-friendly. The crossover/filter settings left much to be desired for people who do not know or understand the concept. It might be a better option to get a pioneer or another unit. But if you like a challenge, get an alpine and ask a whole lot of question as well as search for answers... chances are, they've already been answered.

    Jmac is right, make sure u get a good quality amp for your components. I'm not sure about their power requirements but look in to U.S. acoustics amps. Also, check local stores like he sed..i got my alpine7894 for like $250 w/ all equipment and install. (i woulda installed myself...but hell they sed they'd do it for free.) peace

    if you're not new to car audio, then good for you

    newbie un-friendly in terms of alpine crossover settings. A lot of newbies can't seem to bring up midbass and sub level volume up (not with the normal SUB/BASS/TREBLE). If you know what frequencies you want your equipments to play, then all the better.

    kewl, you could always ask questions over here.. lots of people who has had previous/current experiences with various hu's, especially alpine/pioneer (seems to be the most popular around here)

    and I use a lot of periods....

    figured a single period sometimes appears rude, like as if I don't really want to talk about it or soemthing...
