Re: Stereo Woes
Mat, I would go with Alpine. I have never had any issues with them. Also, I know it may be a blow to your pride, but I would have a professional stereo shop install it. That way you get a warranty on the parts and labor. If they go bad, they remove and reinstall for free and if still under warranty, replace the unit as well. Head units are funny. It doesn't take much to make them go bad. A big bump in the road can break the circuit board inside and like also mentioned, static. I am well versed in stereo installation, but I bit the bullet and had a shop do it for the warranty factor.
