    Eclipse absolutely No online sales...

    Alpine No online sales except for Crutchfield.

    Go local and know what your getting as well as a warranty

    For the same reason you see guys in big white vans selling stuff from the back. Or guys on corners selling from the trunk of their car. Because it is being done makes it ok?

    And BTW..onlinecarstero is having some issues with pending litigations from a few companies now.

    If any doubt on where you are purchasing from contact the manufacturer themselves and they will tell you. All the numbers are public knowledge.

    Re: recommendations on h.u

    I would say the Apline 9815 is a good choice.

    Re: recommendations on h.u

    don't go refurbed. i bought my alpine cda 9830 two days ago for 247 INCLUDING tax. Money well spent my friend. If you want a pioneer go for the premier deh-p760mp or if the pioneer's deh-p7600mp. The premier is mechanically identical to the pioneer. Only diff is the face says premier and it has a 2 year warranty vs. 1 year (you wont even touch these warranties believe me). I switched over from kenwood to my alpine and i'm never going back.

    The boy JB was a friend of mine
    Til I caught him in my car tryin to steal my Alpine
    Chased him up the street to call a truce
    The silly mother****er pull out a deuce-deuce
    Little did he know I had a loaded 12 gauge

    Check out this one. Compare specs to all the others and buy from a reputable company like I did. You won't be sorry. This is the HU I purchased and it came with everything I needed. Crutchfield is a great company and when I called tech support twice, they helped me right away with no waiting. Awesome! My HU I installed went smoothly and I love it.

    http://www.crutchfield.com/S-zlZoEs1...5410&s=0&cc=01

    Not too many people around here like Panasonic but to me it's fine. It has 5Volt outs and all the other specs are very attractive, not to mention this unit looks good too. For the price I don't think many out there can beat it. Right now Crutchfield will even throw in a free set of speakers.




    HU ~ Panasonic MXE CQ-C5410U (3)5V Outputs
    Fronts ~ Panasonic CJ-DD163 6.5"
    Subs ~ (2) 12" Pioneer Premier TS-W2000SPL
    Amp ~ Legacy 4-CH LA1095
