  1. The thing is cruchfield has them for 550.00 and I bought it from sonix electronix for 270.00. I think it's a lower price deck with highend qualitys. For this price you can't go wrong.
  2. I love this unit CD 5000 Eclipes. It blows my the alpine away that I had hooked up. I'm still amazed on what just changeing the deck can do for your system. Just hooking it up fixed my sound stage and lifted it up right were it should be with crystal clear sound. The control over your system is just crazy. Even my sub has never hit harder and cleaner befor. I'm thinking thats the 8volt pre outs at work. All my gains are dead nuts 1/2 way now instead of comeing close to 3/4 . I must say alpine has the best ipod control for searching for songs but Eclipes beats them hands down in the
  3. Dang I just recieved my new PAC OS-2BOSE interface from logjam . The instructions say if your not useing the bose amp I need to use the OS-2 interface. Is it possible to still use the PAC OS-2BOSE even thoe I'm useing aftermarket amps? It seems Logjam makes it real tuff on returnes so if I can make this work I will. Has anyone ran into this problem? Thanks for any help.
  4. Check it out at crutch field. I bought it and should be in at weeks end. I pick it for all the audio controls it provides. I payed 270.00 at sonix electronix new,crutch has them for 550.00
  5. Please don't everyone answer at the same time
  6. What do you guys think of this head unit?
  7. I'm sure you see the warnings saying music over 100db will cause hearing loss. Well how loud is 100db?
  8. I'm also looking for a good inerface. So far I've found two. PAC-C2R-GM24 ....... ANYONE HAVE THIS ONE? Metra VT-GMOS-04....On crutch theres nothing but bad reviews on this one? Any others out there?
  9. I was going that route the 360 untill I heared one hooked up from a local guy and he was not happy with it. Send it back and get an after market head unit. If you really want to keep the stock deck then go for it. The DA converter in the delco units are junk so no matter what you do to try and fix the singnal it it will never be as clean sounding as a decent aftermarket unit. Just a heads up.
  10. Whats the switch for? Your grounds are find the way you did it. Now just jump a feed directly from the ALT to the POS on the battery. Keep the feed going to the red box also.
  11. I need to buy one also and was thinking of doing the install Would it be hard for a first timmer with the supplied directions? I don't mine spending the time but spending the money on labor just kills me. Where is a good place to buy the viper on line?
  12. I've done some research on ipods and they say they deliever NEAR CD quality. Does that mean it would be hard to tell if the music is comeing from an ipod or CD.
  13. Maybe I should ask a question (: What are the inportant specs and options now days that I should look for?
  14. I'm not really getting this MY 5YR old 250.00 retail dollar alpine has better specs then the new 400 dollar alpine decks and most others in that range. My older alpine does not have ipod or fancy face plates but the nuts and bolts of the deck are far superior or at least seem to be? 1-4volt outputs,this is a big deal right? 2-time aliment 3-bass focus 4-cross overs with setting for all outputs and sub feed with slope curves etc. My last step in the completion of my system is a new deck but I would like my new deck to have better specs then my old one that I'm useing. Thanks
  15. Happy New Years everyone...........I have a coulple questions about sound quality. 1- Does useing an ipod degrade sound like I've heared on the web? If so is it like switching from XM radio to cd? You would think it would be great sound quality being it comes straight from itunes to your deck. 2- What is the best way to get your music for sound quality? ipod,MP3,WMA,AAC and what the heck is WMA and AAC. What about DVD? Thanks for any feed back.
  16. Man she is smokin.......Go coconuts Anyway does he like it?
  17. I used the factory fuse just to save cash. In stead of jumping straight to the battery I replaced the wire from the ALT to the fuse block and then from the load side of the fuse jumped over to the battery. If you have a 200amp ALT then you will need to add a 200amp inline fuse. Great mod even small systems can benifit from it.
  18. It looks like I screwed up 1-I did neg to frame 2-ALT to distrubution box 3-Distrubution box to pos on battery I really diden't think this would benifit my system at all because I never had the typical problems like dimming light etc. I did notice driveing to get pizza my volt gauge is steady and slightly above 14volts. It use to flutter back and forth befor the upgrade.
  19. Man O Man...It sounds like I just recieved a free 100 watts I just can't believe it took me so long to do this. My amps were starving for juice and keep in mine it's a low power system. I'm running 2 amps one is tuned to 300 watts for my sub and the 4 channel is tuned to 60 watts front and 30 watts for rear fill. My suburban has a new altima battery and came with 140 amp ALT. My amp ground is bolted to the frame and all my wire is jl quality 4 gauge . All conectors from battery to amps are top quality. Just to give you an idea the system is done right. My volt readings all c
  20. I will take befor and after volt readings from my amps at idle and also ohm readings from my amp grounds.
  21. I've decided to keep my stock deck. Now I need either the 3 sixty or jl cleen sweep. I would like to hear how you like it and if it made a big diffrence. Thanks..
  22. I just bought the XR componets for 180 at sonix electronix. They will be installed monday
  23. It sounds like you need a whole new system Check your grounds.
