Anyone in here ever owned an Alpine 8080 alarm? I'm thinking of buying a NIB 8080 and need to know what to expect of it out of the box? What add-ons are needed etc.

Thanks

Come on, some of you old folks on here should remember something about this alarm! This might need to be turned into a WTB thread! Anyone have any add-on modules or accessories for the Alpine 8080?

Too late my friend. Got it for my old school install. Along with some add-ons.

Remote was cool..the one I had the brain was finicky..
Where did you have the brain mounted? Manual says not to have them near a heat source. Thinking of either in the center console or in the trunk.

Damn Scott, forgot you were Da Man in Da Day:)

I probably should update this post huh? The alarm is installed, I have everything hooked up (Hood Switch, Starter Cut, Motion in the Trunk, Door Locks and Unlocks, Glass Breakage, LED's and Velet switch)

Next process will be hooking up the Windows which brings me to a question. Is the Alpine 8341 Window modules a must for this function to work properly or will any standard 30/40 amp SPDT Relay work?

A relay will not work correctly
A wi Dow mod is the best way it has saftey Limiters build in
In case of a bad window or someone hand in the window it will notice the
Extra amps the motor is asking for and stop

Plus a window mod takes a pulse to work like a latching relay

Can be tapped to the orange wire (starter kill) and one of the aux outputs
And get tricky if you diode in the purple negative out on full alarm
You can arm the system - hit aux roll down the windows - when the alarm
Is set off the windows will roll up !!

Hello eisnerracing, I know it's been a while but I was wondering if by chance you still had that Alpine 8040 alarm for sale? My email is prodicaldude12-bus at yahoo.com. Thank you
Good Luck, I haven't seen anything of Scott on here in ages!

Hello all,

I'm also looking for this specific remote control so if anyone has a spare one, please let me know ([email protected]).

I guess it's not possible to sync it somehow with another (easier to find!) remote in the market right?

Thank you in advance.
