    Alpne CDA 9887 with KTX 100eq IMPRINT

    I just recently purchased a alpine 9887 with the imprint and the bluetooth device. And i was wondering when i hook this up in my truck should i still connect my solid audio sq5 EQ / line driver to it. I was told that the alpine was way better with out adding the sq5 or any EQ/line driver. Dont know what to do. So if any one has a 9887 or has used one please give me your opinion, or experiece with or with out the EQ.

    If most people say use the SQ5 then i will but do i hook it up to the front rear or sub output. I would assume to the front.

    Any help would be greatly apreciated. Thanks Guys

    I have a 9887. You dont need an EQ or line driver. The 9887 has active capabilities and 4v preouts.

    well my sq5 is supposed to bump it up to 8volt preouts or maybe its 7. So you think the alpine by itself would be just as good if not better.

    The only time you ever need a line driver is if your install is junk. They are generally used with line out converters to boost the signal.

    Not a clue. It installed fine on my computer. Do you have the UAC prompt? You could try exploring the CD contents and running the setup.exe as admin.

    Not true. Some need adjustable pre-amp voltage because their amp won't accept what the headunit offers (ie: Eclipse 8v + older amp that accepted <6v). Just an example.

    If you've got Win7Ultimate use compatibility mode.

    You can change preout voltages on high end headunits like the 9887.

    Correct, but some amps are just protect happy. My 7200mkII (before it blew up) does too.
