    Voltage Question

    Hey,
    This may be a dumb question, but here it is...I found an Alpine 9835, but it is in the United Kingdom. I know in europe that they have different voltages in their houses than we do in the U.S. so...do their cars use 12v like we do in the united states? Pretty much, will this head unit work for my explorer?



    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

    12v is basically universal for modern cars, so yes.

    IIRC, in Japan they use way different frequencies, I dont know about UK or if Alpine makes them in different flavors for that purpose.

    Yes there is difference between north america and the UK, look at your owners manual for instructions to switch it.

    Re: Voltage Question

    Some decks meant for sale in the US have the option of switching the tuner frequency gap between American and European tuning but the same may not be true for units built for sales elsewhere.
