    How will the SQ be?

    Hey, I can't decide which alpine to get, 9847 or 9835. I only like these two models because they are black, which looks the best in my car. However, I don't know if I will tell much of a sound different between the two units even though the 9835 is a lot more expensive. The 9847 doesn't have any band parametric EQs. Is there much sound difference? I have stock speakers and a w6v2. thanks.



    Car - 2002 Ford Explorer XLT
    HU - Had two alpine 9855s, both broke, so now I am searching for another HU
    Amp - JBL gto 600.1
    Sub - 12w6v2 tuned 30hz

    You have stock speakers and you are worried about SQ?

    they are factory upgraded. I know they don't compare to your "*******" speakers, but yes, I can tell a difference from head unit to head unit with my "crappy" stock speakers. thanks for you input.

    they both use the exact same preouts, you won't hear a difference, even between the lowest and highest end model. That's not the difference your paying for, it's features.

    they will sound the same. the eq in the head units **** anyway, but that is just my opinion.

    Get the cheaper one, a high end deck is a straight waste of money for stock speakers. If you have any more questions or concerned don't hesitate to PM me. I'm here to help.

    Not sure how it'll sound on stock speakers but personally I couldn't stand not having at least a 5-band EQ on an alpin.e The one I had before didn't and I get rid of it asap. Couldn't tune the mids as much as I wanted.

    If you don't need the features that are in the more expensive one then buy the cheaper one and spend the money you saved on an external EQ.
