    swapping faces

    is possible to swap faces on decks?

    For example if i had two deh-p860mp and two cars. Would i be able to use only one face for both receivers and keep my other face in the case at home?



    Truck system:
    Pioneer P860mp HU
    Alpine SPS-171A Type-S 6 1/2" Comp's
    Alpine SPS-690A Type-S 6x9' speakers
    4 PG Octane-R amps
    3 Alpine SWS-1242D Type-S 12" subs


    ````````````````````````````````
    Car system
    4 Pioneer TS-A1681R 6 1/2" speakers
    2 Alpine MRD-M1005 amps
    2 Alpine SWX-1242D Type-X subs

    yes. in fact, i know that on alpine decks u can use a different face on a different model chassis. for instance, my friend had a 7983 or something like that. and he borrowed my alpine 7995 face becuz i hadnt planned to install it soon. he didnt get the mp3 functions but it still worked. so im sure you can use one face for two same chassis.

    Yep, some faces work on different models. But you can definitely use a different face on the same model, otherwise you wouldnt be able to just buy a face from a company or ebay.

    Re: swapping faces

    yea. but dont expect to have the features from each model combined. i think it behaves like the chassis model.

    wouldn't the features from the face plate you have on be intact?
