well, it depends what you features you need and what kind of stereo you are building....


as for an amp, lots of things to consider in that. How many subs/how much power handling/SQL or SPL/sub size/ohm rating on the coils?


As for Hondakid - running 6 600 watt subs off of an 1100 watt monoblock amp? yeah..........sure.............hell no.

Alpine units have really good tunability (not as good as others) but have great sound quality. The only gripe I have with Alpine units is their best HU's only have 4v pre-outs (while most top of the line HU's form other manufacturers are 5v, 6.5v or 8v).

Check into the Panasonic 9000 series (great decks for the price), the Pioneer Premier 8mp or 860mp or the Eclipse 5000/8000 series. Those are basically some of the best decks out on the market currently. But if you want a good Alpine deck check into a CDA9855.

the Pioneer (Premier)8MP stands for "PIMP"...hehee...

its a sweet looking deck, with some amazing features - looking at one for my next install


as for your bass wants - do you want just loud bass, do you want clean bass, do you want deep bass?

HU = Head Unit... Abbr.

4v pre-out = 4 volt pre-out (or RCA out)... Used to send a signal from your head unit to an external amplifier. Any deck over $300 (MSRP) should have 3 sets of pre-outs (Front, Rear, Sub). The higher the voltage the cleaner the sound will be sent to the amp.

Panasonic has 5 volt pre outs on their upper line decks
Pioneer has 6.5 volt preouts on thier upper model Premier decks
Alpine units are all 4 volt for the better decks
Eclipse 5000 serie is 5 volt pre outs and 8000 series is 8 volt
