    Re: General Question about cd player

    i would get a radio with 3 sets of RCA preamp outputs. it would be even better.

    if you get a radio with 3 sets of RCA preamp outputs, you'll have front, rear, sub outputs.

    with the subwoofer outputs you can control your subs.



    Truck system:
    Pioneer P860mp HU
    Alpine SPS-171A Type-S 6 1/2" Comp's
    Alpine SPS-690A Type-S 6x9' speakers
    4 PG Octane-R amps
    3 Alpine SWS-1242D Type-S 12" subs


    ````````````````````````````````
    Car system
    4 Pioneer TS-A1681R 6 1/2" speakers
    2 Alpine MRD-M1005 amps
    2 Alpine SWX-1242D Type-X subs

    I'd also check for a head unit with built in crossovers. not necessarily a big deal.. but definitely a nice option.

    Re: General Question about cd player

    a crossover is like a network, that separates the different frequencys and sends them to different components.

    for example if you have a radio with a build in low-pass crossover and a high-pass crossover, then you can send the low frequencys to your subs and high frequencys to your speakers or tweeters, so each component would sound its best.


    and YES i would recommend a headunit for under 200 but make sure you get a brand named one like, Alpine, Pioneer, Clarion, Kenwood.

    the pioneer deh-p4700mp is a good or even a deh-p6700mp or a Alpine CDA-9847



    Truck system:
    Pioneer P860mp HU
    Alpine SPS-171A Type-S 6 1/2" Comp's
    Alpine SPS-690A Type-S 6x9' speakers
    4 PG Octane-R amps
    3 Alpine SWS-1242D Type-S 12" subs
