Hey y'all I'm new to the forum, after much lurking I decided to sign up. It's a great site and good resource for info. I just purchased a 2000 Honda Accord and I plan on swapping out the current stock stereo. Best bet would probably be to start with the Head Unit I assume?? Based on specs and recommendations around here I have narrowed it down to:
low-end Eclipse (3424 or 3434)
AlpineCDA-9825 thru 9830.
I really only plan on replacing the factory 6 1/2's and 6x9's and pushing them with a good HU. Perhaps adding an amp for those coaxials in the future, or even a single sub/amp combo. Don't really need tons of bells and whistles, i.e. crossovers, XM Satellite, etc. but I would still like something good enough to base my system on and leave room for growth. Any thoughts or suggestions, specs I should pay attention to?? I am also not ruling out Pioneer and Clarion HU's (had one long time ago and it was great). Thanks for any help, keep up the good work!
