    How will the sound quality be?

    I am trying to decide on what head unit to get right now. I had an alpine 9855, but after 2 crappy units, i gave up on the 9855. I am thinking about getting a DVD/cd player with a screen. I was looking at the jensen vm9410 http://www.crutchfield.com/S-sLFzJp6...00&I=110VM9410 and i was woundering how much sound quality difference will I get with this than a regular head unit.

    Also, I know nothing about in dash dvd players, do I need to purchase like another amp or something for the screen? I'm sorry if that is a dumb question. You have to learn somehow...

    Amp - JBL gto 600.1
    Sub - 12w6v2 tuned 30hz

    Jensen<Alpine

    You will not "need" an external amp for that unit. But I always recomend running one regardless.

    I don't want to buy another amp though.

    It's not like you have to. Run your speakers on the HU. Just don't expect great SQ. Your not running any comp sets are you? Because stock speakers are fine off of the HU.

    Re: How will the sound quality be?

    yeah, that Jensen piece is actually pretty cool. Being that it's a DVD player, it will probably sound better than the alpine too. I think that's a great choice.

    Re: How will the sound quality be?

    Why must I explain my simple posts? Is the world losing IQ? Are the screens giving you all tumors in the brain?

    Jensen<Alpine on SQ. Your question was "Will you notice less Sound Quality?"

    Now packer fan stating the jensen has better screens with the sarcastic roll eyes pic, while quoting my statment. Was just trying to say I was wrong.

    When the illiterate idiot could not understand what the thread was about in the first place.

    I'm sick of people trying to be the smart one. Don't quote one of my posts unless you know what you are taking about ok packerfan...

    And unless you have hands on experience with both lines (not talking just owning one either or repeating what someone else has said), you are far from qualified to comment on it at all. Come back in 20 years of working in the industry and then you will be qualified to talk about what line is better than the other.



    Yeah, whatever

    I dont see jack **** in there about sq, just an ignorant response*

    If you would have typed Jenson<Alpine in sq i wouldnt have said anything but questioned weather or not you have expierence with both. Which i do, which i belive makes me qualified to give an answer based on expierence, not off bandwagons and just the name.
