Hey guys, I have a Pioneer 3500 in my truck now, but I just got an Alpine CDE-9852 as part of a trade (got a JL 300/4 and the hu for a small table saw that I haven't used in 2 yrs).

Anyway, I always liked the Alpine sound on the older units, and wondered how much better it might be than the Pioneer (if at all) before I switch them out.
