    Is it worth it for me to get a new HU?

    Currently running a decent alpine one. alpine ute-42bt

    It only have 2 sets of preouts @ 2v each. Currently I'm using y splitters to run my 4 channel off the "front" preouts and my sub amp is going off the "rear/sub" preouts.

    Is it worth upgrading to something that has 3 preouts (front,rear,sub) and is at 4V? Will I even notice a difference? Maybe something like this: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-ca/produ...4a643fd3ffen02

    Currently running:

    Alpine PDX-F4 with 4 coaxial speakers
    Sundown SAZ-2000D
    Sundown X12 sub



    2000 F150 4.6L Extended Cab - Build in Progress
    • Sundown SAZ-2000D (Purchased from 350zspl - Thanks mate!)
    • Sundown Zv4 Dual 2 Ohm Subwoofer: Ordered from SSA
    • 2.75 Cu Ft @ 32hz

    You may, but it depends. If the HU is by far the "weakest" link in your system, then yes. You have coaxial speakers, so aside from fader control and a few extra features, I don't see it being worth the money for you. Amplifiers can already do full power with your 2V pre-outs anyway. You're good.

    you'll need one if your sub feels like its falling behind your music. With coaxials you probably dont need an SQ head unit. When you get to components then most definitely switch it up to a better head unit.



    09 Sienna Subs : Four Team Ascendant 18s......Sub amp: Two Taramps 15k
    Headunit: Pioneer 80PRS................................Mids/Highs amp: CT 500.2, ppi 600.2, ppi 900.4 bridged
    Front stage: Two PWX 10s per door midbass only....... PRV 6MR500 midrange....... Massive CT 2 german tweeters.
    320 amp Singer alt....... 1 group 34 under the hood 6 group31 agms in the back 560 amp hours total.

    it seems that you would have more control over each output. i bought a three output a few years back, best thing i ever did, recently bought another three rca out, front back and sub, just for the bluetooth for my iphone.
