    Eclipse 5425 vs Alpine 9847 -- Kenwood

    Any thoughts guys? Was about to buy the Alpine when the salesman said the quality went to crap.


    Everyone seems to agree that SQ of Eclipse is great, but if you dont run an amp off of it is it worth looking at that Christmas tree like face since one of its advantages is the quality of the pre outs?


    Finally, Kenwood's stated RMS of 22 is slightly higher than some of the others, does this give the advantage to Kenwood if you are going to run coaxils? Is Kenwood crap or decent quality?

    I would go with eclipse. Even if you are not going to use the pre outs yet, it is worth it since you may run amps later(and I bet it sounds great even with just the internal amp).
