    8454 vs 9833

    I'm looking at either alpine 9833 or the eclipse 8454 what you guys think is greater in SQ (through experience).

    Thanks

    eclipse no doubt. IMO better sq and more tuning capabilities.

    Re: 8454 vs 9833

    Starts with an EC and ends with and LIPSE But I'm biased because I've owned 3x more Eclipse decks than Alpine. Alpine is still a good choise though, just not on par with the sq, features, tuneability, etc of the 8454.

    Re: 8454 vs 9833

    Alpine in a heartbeat...I hated the 8454 I owned.

    Namely the inability to EQ the sub in Pro mode as well as sub level control in sub mode. Not to mention by FAR the shittiest remote I've ever used, and a fairly poorly written manual.
