Default "Doitor plays with some cool toys" test

Decided to start the thread to keep things organized.
So here's the plan.

I. Find out clipping volume.

II. Listening tests

a) Play them thru my Near Field Studio Monitors for a listening test with reference SQ material.
b) Install them in my car for a listening test with the same reference material.

III. RTA

a) Measure RTA response with pink noise on the Monitors.
b) Play with a couple of x-overs cut's at different slopes and measure.
c) Play with a couple of eq bands and measure.

IV. "Written Exam".

a) Use it for a couple of days in my car to see how user friendly it is.
b) I'll get a "non car audio lover" in the car to try and use the HU/processor with simple tasks. (on/off, cd in/out, volume, track, etc).
c) "Cool factor". "Non car audio lover" opinions on just raw coolness or "wow" factor.

All of the info will be put on a spreadsheet along with some technical data for a "quick reference" guide.

The list of "contenders" is:

1. Alpine W505
2. Alpine H701
3. Alpine H900
4. Rockford Fosgate (Denford) RFX-8250
5. Denon DCT-A10
6. Eclipse 55090
7. Pioneer P9 Combo
8. Clarion DRZ 9255
9. Audison Bit One
10. McIntosh MX406

I'm doing this to choose the one that I like the most.
The "winner" will stay in my car.
The rest will be sold and/or returned to the owners, because not all of the gear is mine.
I'll "reserve" a post for each one and will be posting results as I have them.
Well, let the test begin.


Jorge.

Yep. I've got two small ones.
But that's not for them.
You don't know what SQ is until you listen to Barney at full tilt on the Legatias.

You know what's sad? That's the third 701 I've owned (all of them were new) that has never been installed.

Definately worth keeping an eye on this one

Looking at getting a P90 combo later this year so the review would be well worth the read.
