    Re: Cheap Active HU

    JVC KD-SH1000

    SD card slot
    USB slot
    5v line out
    9 band graphic EQ, or 3 band parametric EQ
    Time Alignment
    Active 3-way crossover -18db slopes. , .

    I will tell you that it uses the Front HPF as the mid LPF. You cannot over/underlap. 1.6khz-16khz for the front HPF and mid (rear)LPF. 31.5-200hz on the others.

    On thing I really like about this unit is the amp gain setting. Using the low power setting caps the volume at 30/50. It keeps passengers or anyone from cranking the thing all the way up which has been a problem for me over the years.

    Thats one I'm leaning towards. Just looking around to see if anything else is out there that I dont know about.

    I have an alpine but I don't remember if it is a 9815 or 9813. I also have the alpine plug & play amp for all black plug alpine units.

    I almost bought one, but I like using USB sticks to play the majority of my music. I'll probably eventually get the new PRS since it has that option, or the Clarion CZ702.
