    Icon32 Alpine...9813 or 9815?

    OK I've been looking for a H/U for a couple months now and I've narrowed it down to either Alpine's 9813 or 9815 H/U.

    My question is, what is the REAL difference? I did a comparison on Crutchfield and all the specs. they show are the same. Why should I spend the extra $100 on the 9815...other than because it looks sweet.


    EDIT: Don't mind my sig. I'm speaking for my other car

    i have the 9815, dont be fooled by the "just the looks" its a HUGE diffrence, the 9815 is sooo much nicer, well worth the money. and to me, it sounds better, which is what its all about.
    WELL worth the 450 or so for the 9815

    The only difference, 9815 has i-personalize (customized bass engine setups and text greeting downloaded from the internet),
    blue buttons, 2 line dot matrix display. If you like the blue color go with 9815, 9813 has green or amber color only.

    I have a 9815 and absolutely love it. My first ever alpine hu. And yes it is gorgeous. You will be looking at it the most. If it were me, I would end up kicking myself in the a$$ a short time later when I see another 9815. That's why I bought one.

    You already have the 9815. Go to Circuit City or whatever and play with the 9813 ... decide which one you like more. Now is it worth the extra $ ?
