    Alpine or Pioneer?

    So I'm in the Beginning of Starting my system, I've got some knowledge but probably nothing compared to any of you guys. I Have Chossen 2 H/U's but Can't Decide which one. Considering I can get them both for the Same price thats really not a problem, just chossing one is so.

    Alpine 9883 or the Pioneer DEH9500IB

    Re: Alpine or Pioneer?

    i've used both also . but i take pioneer over alpine just because of the settings and button features are easier to use also . just my opinion.

    Re: Alpine or Pioneer?

    Is that the correct Pioneer model number. Cannot find that thing any where to comapre against the Alpine. The 9883 is the base model and does not come with remote even. For the price new you can get a much better HU with alot more options.

    Pioneer. And the correct model number is the DEH-P5900IB.

    I would go Pioneer vs. 9883. Getting more for the money.

    So this seems to plague the 880's... From all I read it's an internal fuse from a bad ground or something.. Supposedly there's a fix by grounding the RCA's and chassis.
