    need help in deciding on what HU to get

    i dont have a job and money is coming very slowly (im 16) so budget is an issue
    i really dont have more then 150$ to spend on a HU so i was thinking of getting the pioneer DEH-P4600 but i read about the alpine HU (Alpine CDA-9826 or Alpine CDA-9830) are they that much better?
    ive decided to buy 2 pairs of infinity kappa speakers with it if it makes a diffrence i dont have enough money to buy an amp with them

    oh and by the way our best buy ***** *** so ont tell me to go see for my self cause they dont carry infinitys & alpine

    maybe you should save your money till you can get something better. seriously. i know this isnt the answer you want but 150 isnt enough, unless you browse the classfields section for something used id even rather do that.

    Re: need help in deciding on what HU to get

    THey call me TATaR TOT,

    Hey if your interested in used I have a older High end kenwood excelon. its not mp3 but is a bad azz h/u. I am getting rid of all my stuff and will hook you up. Just a thought you can think of. I didnt know if you wanted to go new or used. But the new cheap h/us **** azz I just tried a alpine thats a lower line my little brother got and its terrible. MAde the car sound so bad. So some exp advice do save up for a better h/u than a lower line one, cause you will regret it. That h/u is the brain of your system, you dont want the cheapest brain with great speakers subs etc. I know because in my setup if I do nothing but change the h/u its a night and day in the SQ of it. and that goes for the rest of the setups as well. As you a newcomer we are just tryn to help you out and give you good advice because we have made those mistakes first.

    Good luck to you
