    Icon32 What do you think?

    Everywhere I look i'm told to go alpine, but I realy like the new Jvc KD-SHX700. What i'm looking for is mostly that is dosent skip at all, but it would be nice to have something that looks good to. Would I be makeing a big mistake buying the Jvc or should I buy an alpine or something else, i'm looking to spend under 500$

    Re: What do you think?

    Wow under 500? U got a very very very wide selection to chose from. I myself would recommend an alpine deck. Im not sure about exactly how cheap you can get it but a CDA-9835 or a CDA-7998 would be extremely nice

    Yeah, I would go with Eclipse, Pioneer Premier or Alpine 98xx series over JVC.

    alpine=cheaper
    alpine=online

    eclipse can not always be had because the retailres are so far away.

    but my brother got a eclipse CD5444 from a retailer for $430 installed, and i think thats pretty **** good. i have a cheaper alpine CDA-9827- and it plays my MP3 discs @ 325kb\s with no problems, never had it skip.

    thats my $.02

    Alpine only legitely through Crutchfield...Although I do see your point about having issues with local shops selling Eclipse.

    thats where i got mine

    free shipping + 3 year warranty + free installation materials (car specific) + free 24\7 tech support + free installation instructions (car specific) + free visor-mount CD holder!!!

    for 260 new (cda-9827) thats a freaking deal. ~$40 for the install equpment (not car specific and crappy freaking "insert tab A into slot c-2" instructions) and then a few hours trying to figure out how to put that crappy install kit together, then the HU breaking because you got it on ebay and you have to buy a new one. i mean come on.

    its worth it. for HU's - crutchfield is incredible.

    a buddy of mine has a ford tarus, and the dash-kit costs $75+ because its "custom" for the car. and this is online. crutchfield gives it FOR FREE. and thats simply amazing.

    /end rant.

    Not for nothing, I dont go by what some dumb, non-high school diploma having fuccing rapper swears by....thats whats wrong with the car audio crowd, Xzibit tells pimple-faced, permit-having kids that Audiobahn is what he rocks, and they 'follow the leader'- I'm not a follower,and I chose to be a leader and judge things for myself, learn to be a critic.....

    Rappers do more harm than good when they rap about what they use....believe that

    On top of that, I doubt he's speaking on your $200 deck

    I'm suprised that you didn't get a giddy that they mentioned Zapco Honestly, I'm quite impressed that they'd know who Zapco is.........considering they are pretty "blingless" and not totally mainstream
