    I was considering coming down to that. I'll probably be down there unless something comes up on that weekend. Would be nice to hear another car and compare.

    Re: Going Active / Adding Dedicated Midbass Questions

    I like Alpine products and like their build quality and sound, but features are sometimes lacking.

    how about an older 9887 or 9835/9833 for 3-way active?

    for a 3" speaker - look at Madisound or PartsExpress for a Dayton Audio, Peerless, or Vifa. $25-30 each



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    Are you going to use an MS-8 or not? There's no point whatsoever in getting an active capable head unit if you're going to use a DSP to do the same job but much better. I would go with a Clarion, but not the CZ702. A CZ302 would do you just fine along with an MS-8.

    Agreed. HU sound quality matters more than tuning capabilities since using a DSP.
    Why do you suggest the CZ302 trumpet?

    Honestly, even a CZ102 would be good enough as a CD transport and aux source for an MS-8 system, but it lacks Bluetooth. The CZ302 is one step below a CZ702.

    Have you used any of the current model Clarion single DINs?

    Re: Going Active / Adding Dedicated Midbass Questions

    Just a couple here and there when a customer brings them in. Just have a history with clarion, I know they are trying to dig themselves out of the trenches they put themselves in but I tend to live by the fool my once principal.

    Clarion is and always has been a sound quality brand, and I'm proud to provide their products to my customers. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend one of their single DIN head units to accompany a good DSP. However, for the OP I still think he can keep his current head unit unless it's missing required features. JVC is good brand as well.
