    Alpine Vs Kenwood

    The last head unit i bought, after having a decent pioneer unit (which i was quite dissatisfied with) was a kenwood excelon head unit, and i quickly fell in love. it just seemed to have so many options and has been reliable for nearly 4 years now (and the unit wasnt even new to begin with!)
    So now it is time to buy a new head unit, and i am seriously looking into the brand new kenwood excelon series, but i have also heard good things about the alpine units
    SO BASICALLY, what i have been getting to this whole time is, which should i pay more attention to (assuming money isnt a problem) The top of the line kenwood excelon head units or the alpine top of the line head units (NOT dvd players or anything else just their high end cd/mp3 players)

    Re: Alpine Vs Kenwood

    top of the line alpine is a cda 9835...which has a nice face...the 9833 has the same specs except i personalize...and the face isn't as flashy...

    if you want last year's model, you can take a look at the alpine cda7998, which is 399 at crutchfield but if you look around you can get 2 20 off coupons which brings the price to 360ish shipped...i would get taht, its 1.5 din and phantom face...very nice unit

    i myself own a 9833, great sound xpander actually does work and is very nice

    9833 is 317 shipped 9835 should be mid 400???i don't really know

    i vote 9833 or 7998

    if you don't need top of the line and want a mid level head unit look into clarion dzx835mp

    Head Unit: Alpine CDA-9833
    Speakers: Polk/MOMO MMC650 (coaxials with ext. cross)
    Sub: Digital Design 9512
    Mono Amp: Hifonics Brutus bx1500
    Speak Amp: Tsunamni db4440

    Upcoming: in a 94 camry
    -Components: don't know yet
    -Midbass maybe?
    -seel and peel or second skin
