    Everyone I work with flames Alpine head Units... What are you guys oppinions?

    I dont know why they flame Alpine HU's. I think theyre really good. They always tell me that Alpine will always screw up on ya and youll have it in the shop more than itll be in my truck. I was wondering what you guys thought of Alpine HU's.

    They're one of the best IMO. Not all that user-friendly, but usually have a good amount of features.

    If you like them, who cares what they think.

    Perhaps they had a bad experience, or are just uneducated. Everyone has their own opinions, however.

    They have no clue what they are talking about and I would have to say they are " total uneducated noobs" I feel ya on the user interface of the new decks being a little difficult, only so much stuff you can have a deck do without a 10" screen haha! I have owned 5 alpine decks total personally and my sis has had two and not one of them has ever let me down period, one of my decks is going on it's 3rd car! Alpine is a very classy deck... higher end that most out there and the one person is right they bash them because they cannot afford them.

    mabye they are kinda ugly looking, but from many people i've heard that they're built with superior circuitry (at least the high end ones).

    Re: Everyone I work with flames Alpine head Units... What are you guys oppinions?

    People can be misinformed by salespeople too. If a customer shops in a store that doesn't sell Alpine, and asks a salesperson if they carry Alpine, that salesperson (ususally a younger, non-savy salesperson) will immediately start flaming Alpine. That customer then believes whatever garbage is spewing from that sales person's mouth and hence you have this problem.

    FYI: Best Buy is going to start selling Alpine in the 3rd quarter of 2005.

    Alpine is top of the line. Love their features, controls, realiability. IMO they also make some of the best looking HU's. With that said.....I'm getting Kenwood...LOL, only because I need a DD and Alpine is kinda lacking in that area.

    agreed! i loved my alpine...tirefryr loves it too i'm sure...lol




    never any problems with it, though a quick read thru the owners manual isn't enuff to know all the features and controls.



    btw, i had the cda-7894...awesome deck, went thru two trucks..one with a pair of 15's that could hit 145.5 and it never skipped a beat!

    Ive had 5 different alpine models going a few years back. Ive loved every single one but switched up for a newer model or a better one/features.
