    About to buy Eclipse 8445 should I?

    All right first of all here's my current setup

    My System in a Honda Accord 2004:

    Stock HU
    Navone 4 Channel LOC
    Audio Control EQL
    JL e6450 Six Channel Amp
    Focal Polyglass components Front
    Focal polyglass components Rear (except I dont use the tweeter in the back)
    10" Diamond Audio Sub (Sealed)

    I want SQ only not to rumble aroud town, just a nice quiet RICH and DETAILED SOUND, CLARITY is VERY important.

    SO I finally decided to go buy a head unit and I think this eclipse 8445 is my best bet... what do you guys think?

    Link to Eclipse HU's info

    Its 530usd + 50usd for the metra mounting kit for the accord...

    Any comments and what should I look out for in this or other headunit.

    Thanx

    I think you'll be very content with that unit...its a solid deck, great sound.

    It will be night and day from stock HU IMO.

    yes your stock deck doesnt feed a flat,true signal to begin with....you will hear music totally different in tone, distortion content...
