    How's your cz 702 compare to those 2, sound wise? DSP ... aside.
    I have an external dsp so the sound is what I'm interested in.

    Everything in my Sig is sold I just haven't updated it I have totally different things, but the CZ sound wise is pretty decent idk I just can't get the 80 PRS to sound how I like it and I know of a lot of other people saying the same thing. You have something in your mind on how something sounds but I can't get it there like I said it sounds dull

    Re: Pioneer 80prs vs Alpine 149

    I won't run a Pioneer head unit. I won't tolerate noise and even on their best day, they are noisy. Don't take my word for it, there are thousands of threads from people with noise problems and >95% of them have a Pioneer deck.

    The HD149BT is a solid deck, clean output to 100% volume, zero noise, and a nice menu structure and ease of operation. I still have a CDA-9887 also and while the HD149BT isn't active capable, there are many amps that can give you the crossover points you need.



    have you been helped by me? i'd love to know. shoot me a PM.

    And this is exactly why I will be buying the 149 when the time comes. That **** pico fuse is the dumbest idea ever.

    I have not ran either one of these head units but I have compared both multiple times and the alpine takes it for me. I have ran multiple pioneer and alpine head units and the alpines always sound better imo

    and before someone says ground the rca outs on the pioneer, which yes it helps but it does not make the noise go away 100%

    so if someone needed a HU to run an active setup the 80prs would be the option because 149bt isn't active capable?

    Is there a double din version of the 80prs?

    Re: Pioneer 80prs vs Alpine 149

    I did a lot of reading before I picked the 80. I never seen a thing about it having the pico problem or noise. I don't have the issues, my only issue is I should have got the P99RS. This deck is dead silent.

    p99rs is also deadly expensive

    Re: Pioneer 80prs vs Alpine 149

    i've heard the 80prs doesn't have the noise issues but I dont like the idea of testing it out at the price of 300 bucks.

    Re: Pioneer 80prs vs Alpine 149

    the 99rs is way expensive haha. But I'm looking at the p80rs and dude it's pretty impressive, I only wish there was a double din that could do all that stuff... When that happens then I will get it. I'm not giving up my cool looking touch screen for a bland looking HU lol :P. I also wish you could set your x over point by the hz, not by like 63, 120, 125, 200, etc. That would be cool.

    It's as simple as not "hot swapping" rca's. If you don't, you won't blow the dumb azz fuse.
