    Alpine Headunits

    I've been out of the car audio world for a while, but I'm ramping up to install a new system in my Camaro. All I'm wondering is if Alpine is still leading the pack for reasonably priced head units? I'm not sure which model I want yet but am I safe with any of them? Any reason to pick one over another besides simple features?
    Thanks!

    Re: Alpine Headunits

    ya I would definatly narrow it down to alpine, eclipse and maybe pioneer but it all depends on your tastes. I personally like eclipses and alpines better but from those two i prefer alpine because they are cheaper and can be bought easier. Ive had my deck for almost 7 months and Ive never had any problems with it and it is a great deck.

    How much are you willing to spend on a head unit?

    Re: Alpine Headunits

    Like others have said, Alpine and Eclipse (new ones have questionable looks.) Also, Pioneer Premier are good.

    Re: Alpine Headunits

    if money isnt an issue and it doesnt matter that the deck doesnt have a detachable face, go with the eclipse.
