    you might be able to find a alpine 9835 somewhere for that price. If not, take a step up from the pioneer tree and get a 860mp or 960mp.

    I have an extra deh-p8mp and deh-p8600mp, but neither of them has a wire harness or the RCA out wires

    look for an ecliipse 8454 8443 or 8053, all easily attainable within that price range.



    Its 106 miles to chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, its dark and we're wearing sunglasses.


    Go, passer-by, and tell the world

    I could get a Alpine CDA-9853 for $269 shipped from clutchfield. Pioneer Premier DEH-P770MP For $220.Pioneer Premier DEH-P680MP for 220. Kenwood eXcelon KDC-X689 For 220. Or save my money and get a
    JVC KD-AVX1 for 400.

    i have the 7700 and it's fine for the price but I am wanting an upgrade for better crossovers and processing. I guess i mean what are you looking to get out of the head unit

    Good SQ and Mp3 playback. That JVC looks tempting but I really havent heard that many good things from JVC car products.

    If you are using external processing i doubt you'll see much of a difference between the units, yes there will be some, but more than likely it won't be enough to matter. I 2nd the eclipse though, i'm thinking that shall be my next deck

    Lol I'll probably get pwned for mentioning this, but you can get an Eclipse 8445 with a Squaretrade 3 yr warranty for around 300$ on E-Bay. E-bay really isn't the best place to be buying something like that, but its such a **** good price that I think it might be worth it to take a risk on that warranty option.

    My car audio addiction will be complete when my system sounds as good as my $20 headphones.
