    Alpine HU info needed

    Hello Everyone!

    I need some help with an Alpine HU, and was pointed to this forum as being a great resource. I used to have an Alpine CDA-7875 in my Mark VIII before I sold it ( ) and I loved that deck. It was rock solid, never skipped, looked AWESOME, and put out the best sound.

    Now, I will be looking for a new car, which will probably be some type of 5.0, and I would like to get another Alpine deck. The one thing I did not like about the 7875 was the brightness of the deck, even dimmed, so I am looking for a HU with a blackout feature, and I am seriously looking at an Alpine CDA-9833. Now, the varied specs I have aren't consistent, does this HU have a blackout display? And how does that work? Does it just black out the LCD or the buttons as well?

    With my old Alpine deck, I built a head unit "cover" box out of thin plastic to pop over the display and black it out a night. But, everytime I wanted to change the song or volume, I would have to take it off, which was a pain. If the 9833 doesn't have a blackout display, can anyone suggest a mid price ($350) Alpine deck that does? I want the buttons to be blue, and I do not want that black and white dot matrix display on the new HUs, and I also want a 60x4 v-drive.

    Thanks for the help!

    LOL, yes is has has to be an Alpine! I find the way they look to be unbeatable, and my experience with them has never let me down, and they sound tremendous.

    Edit: Also, I did a search, and someone said there was a moving display on the 9833? I know my old HU had levels that moved with the music on the left, what does the 9833 have? And what color backlighting are the controls, I would like them to be blue, but can you change them??

    u can change the color on the 4 left buttons.... i used to own a 7875 as well and it looks pretty much the same.... the only difference i know of is that it is harder to configure.

    im not sure about the 9835 but i know that my 9815 has this feature where I can hold the display button down for a couple of seconds and the screen would pretty much turn off until i click on a button. Im not sure if the lights on the buttons turn off , but i am sure that the screen does. In the manual it also says that this blackout feature thing aloows the deck to perform better.
