    Eclipse 5435 installed today

    I finally got my Eclipse deck today. Waited 5 weeks for my local dealer to get the dam thing, but after playing with it for an hour I think it was worth the wait. Installed it, set everything flat, loudness off, set the x-over and with no tweaking it sounds great. I've played with the eq settings, but I think for most music the eq will probably stay really close to flat. The display is a little gaudy looking at first, the aluminum knobs are a little flashy and hard to adjust (I miss the rubber tipped knob on my 9830) but in the dash it looks a ton better than it does on the website, and the sound makes the looks worth living with. Compared to the alpine I just returned, the sound is pretty close. But it took hours of tweaking to find the sweet spot for the alpines eq settings and everytime the unit had an electronic burp (6 times in 4 weeks) I had to reset it and start over on all settings. In a couple of weeks I'll do a review, but for a first impression I'm really happy with this thing.

    Glad to hear you like your Eclipse. I've had my Alpine 9830 for a month tomorrow and haven't had a single problem. It's performed flawlessly, I probablly got the one you returned :lol Mine is a dent & scratch but everthing but the Alpine box looks perfect.

    H/U = Alpine 9830
    Alp-Sir1 Sirius tuner = Sirius Sat Radio
    Front Door Speakers = Alpine SPS-170A '6 1/2
    Rear Door Speakers = Pioneer TG-1040R '3
    Sub = Infinity Reference '10 1030
    Amp = Profile CA600

    Sound =
