    Maybe my understanding is off, but if the xover is controlled by the HU doesn't that make it active not passive?

    Alpine 9833, 9835, 9853, 9855, 9965 (all 3 way)
    Clarion DRZ9255 (4 way)
    Pioneer P99RS (4 way)
    You already got the Pioneer Premier DEH-P880/800PRS (3 way)
    I believe the Alpine 701 combo can do 4 way
    You've also got the Pioneer P9 combo which I believe does 3 way

    I can't think of any others off the top of my head, but I'm sure there's others out there.

    Oh yeah, and you also mentioned the Eclipse model... 7200 MKII (3 way). There may be a couple other ones too from Eclipse but that's a brand I never got overly familiar with.

    Re: headunits with active/passive option

    I think he's looking for a HU that'll do active, not passive.

    Re: headunits with active/passive option

    I'm just taking a guess at it, but I don't think most people would specifically ask for a HU that has the option to set up a passive network.

    Not sure on the 117. As far as I know its the same internally as the 9887.

    As for Eclipse the CD7000, CD7100, 7200MKII, CD8445, and a bunch of other CD8xxx series.

    Eclipse needs to keep making new HUs and sells them in the US

    Re: headunits with active/passive option

    The US doesn't want to pay for quality. That's why there's a very limited number of quality HUs available on the current market. Check out what other companies offer in Europe. We pretty much get shit on quality wise with only a few exceptions.

    The Eclipse 8443 and 8053 can switch back and forth from normal to "pro"(active) mode. The 8443 has an internal amp, but the 8053 is a dead-head. I've been using them for...8 years now.
