    I like my Kenwood KDC-135 which is the older model of the KDC-185 i think. But its a great HU. I know most peoplel iek alpines but i think too many people have them which is why i went with Kenwood

    i dont know how a ground problem would allow words into your bass, sounds like a crossover problem

    the pico fuse blows in them. im pretty sure its because you need to disconnect the harness from the hu ANYTIME you mess with it, not just turn it off, because its still getting a constant 12v power supply to save your settings. just a design flaw i guess, since other hu's dont have the problem nearly as much.

    oh well thats good. When I installed my p800 the other day, I unhooked power for every little thing haha (hooking up rca's, hooking up ipod, etc)
