Go with the alpine 9884 and with the money you save you can add the pxa-h100 imprint processor. It looks like you have a couple of amps already, so you will definetly notice a huge improvement in your sound.

The imprint processor will give you some great sonic tweaking abilities, 6 channel time correction, 5 band eq graphic or parametric I think, individual crossover control for front rear and sub or high mid and low. It will also increase the output voltage on the preamp stage to 4 volts. All of that control will give you the ability to really fine tune your sound.

Well for now I went with the Clarion DXZ-585-USB, this seems to be a good unit with alot of options and upgrade options, plus it was only $155

Let me know what you think of this.

My buddy has the model up from this one, it seems to be a solid headunit and i like slidetrack feature it has.  I have always ran clarion heads and i have never had one fail.  The one i am currently using is a clarion pro audio it is 3+ years old and it is awesome....

Thanx for your input, I have been doing comparisons and looking for about 2 weeks now and nobody really has anything negative to say about Clarion and the price seems to be right, I would have gone Alpine, but it seems like all the add on's will send me to the poor house.

I also got the 6 disc changer that goes with this head unit, should be pretty nice once I get it, you can actually run ups to 4 disc changers with this unit, the head unit has 6 volt prouts, they say this will give cleaner sound than the 2-4 volt outputs.....is that true?
