I have always used alpine as well, never had any propblems with them and they tend to last forever. Kenwood on the other hand, i used kenwood once and it gave me 3 major problems in two years. Thats just my two cents

Alpines always have my vote, they seem to have good quality power supplies and quality components instide them. I've had panasonic and pioneer's but they seem to poop out after a few years (led's stop working on faceplate normally). I'd take a pioneer over a jvc though.

Worked at a Circuit City for the Roadshop. If I wasn't installing something, I was on the floor fooling around with all the headunits and speaker combinations. For the price and reliability, you can't get much better than Pioneer. If you spend about $150+ you'll get great sound quality and good features. In that range it will perform better than just about anything except Alpine.

^^ x2 on the Kenwood **** breaking. Had a unit in my old Mazda when I bought it, the Kenny fell apart and sounded like ****, even with new speakers!!

tweeters and speakers usually go together as a pair, i wouldnt buy them seprate. talk to the people at the local car audio place and see which componet systems they have and try em out and see which you like best. i personally have CDT audio components in my teg and i love em.

I agree with 98_gsr, don't buy tweeters seperate, if you go to your local car audio place they should have good componet speakers that will probably have a cross over as well. My experience is that the componet speakers with the seperate tweeters always sound good togther. I use db audio in my teg and they sound great. I did have to make brakets for them to fit in the properly because the magnets are really big. No biggie thow, just use some mdf wood.

I have been researching for a while as well for a new headunit and I think im leaning towards pioneer. I hear good things about alpine but heard there newer stuff isnt as good as it used to be. Although there is a lot of hype around the new alpine I believe its 9887 not sure. Im leaning towards the pioneer 880prs or 780mp/7800mp they are supposed to be good sq wise having a 24bit burr brown dac in them. Hope this helps a lil.

CDT Audio FTW!!! Im runnin cdt speakers all the way around except for my sub...on the other hand im runnin an Eclipse deck and after gettin it i will NEVER get another brand...neither Alpine or Pioneer compare to the sound quality of my Eclipse head unit

an alpine came in my car when i got it and its kickass. and im going for the alpine 9887 that you mentioned and its even more kickass lol. only downside in my opinion though, is its a bit pricey

Find one that fits your budget and has all the features you want.

Personally I think JVC sucks, Pioneer is nice, but I live by my Alpine products.
JVC depends on person heh. I luv em(certain ones)

agree about the rest

Pioneer is ok
Alpine is badass
