    9835 vs. 8454

    I currently have the Eclipse 8454 and I am thinking about getting a 9835 for mainly the iPod controll. I know eclispe has a iPod controll now but it *****. Is there anything more I would gain going to alpine minus the iPod controll? What would I loose besides the 8v preout on the eclipse? Thanks

    the SQ on the 9835 is awsome

    aside of the voltage, you are giving up finer output impedance as well as double the eq of the Alpine-

    9835= 5 band peq total, but covers the sub range
    8454= independent 5 band front chs PEQ, independent rear ch 5 band PEQ- but no sub freq eq

    You would lose the 10 band parametric eq. Alpine only has a 5 band.

    Re: 9835 vs. 8454

    Well I just won a eBay auction for a 9835 with iPod adapter and sirius adapter for 350 so I think I am gonna sell the eclipse. The ipod connectivity is worth it in itself for me, plus I am glad I dont have to use that crappy I glide. If anyone wants a 8454 let me know.

    Agreed. The 9835 is not even in the same league as the 8454. Not too mention the 8454 is very **** looking.

    How about that.............we agree on something.

    Re: 9835 vs. 8454

    I dont think I even care about the 10 band cause I am only running my front speakers... The only "Big" difference that the elclipse has going for it is the 8v pre out and 24bit DAC.

    As far as sound quality.. yeah. I had a 9815 and it sounded great and to say the eclipse and alpine aren't in the same league is a dumb statement.

    9835 has pathetic preouts. The 8454 has great preouts. 9835 has a 1bit converter. The 8454 has a 24bit converter. And when you point out the tuning abilities of the 8454 compared to the 9835 there really is NO comparison. Eclipse is hands down a superior head unit. You can call it a dumb statement all you want.........but its the truth.
