OK, I'm going to sell my other Jeep that this deck came from. I bought this brand new in 2005 from Best Buy for $470, I have the receipt still and can include it. This deck is mint, no scratches on the face or the remote. This deck was only used for about 1 year except to listen to it every once in a while when I'd start up the Jeep since I haven't driven the Jeep as a daily driver since the summer of 2006. I played it recently and it worked perfect.

This deck will do 3 way active or 2 way f/r plus sub, it has time alignment, plays MP3 and WMA, has a remote, 4 volt out, has selectable graphic or parametric eq, has the ability to run an i-pod with the separate but not included interface, is satellite ready, etc. I was going to put this in my other Jeep, but I get it is so dusty and dirty that I really hate to ruin this deck in there.

This is a great deck for anyone looking to go active, I've priced this no higher than a run of the mill basic deck that can't do active. If it doesn't sell here for what I'm asking, I'll just keep it and run it in my other Jeep whether I ruin it or not. It's too good to do that to it, but I'd rather ruin it than give it away or stare at it on a shelf somewhere. I may even use it in my 88 Cadillac if I decide to keep that car, if this doesn't sell so I'm not desperate to sell it.

As you can see I still have the box which I'll ship it in and the owners manual and other paper work. The speaker wires have never been cut because they've never been used. The power and ground are plenty long too.

$175 plus actual shipping. I don't know what shipping will be so like I usually do, once you pay $175 via paypal, I'll ship it, then tell you the shipping cost and you paypal that exact amount. I can't see shipping being more than $20 in the lower 48 states.

My paypal is [email protected] cox.net

That's a VERY fair price. I just picked one up on my local CL with no
original box or cage for $150.

Good luck on your sale!

Its just that i have seen newer decks going for less with similar functions. How would you compare this to an alpine 9886 or even the 9887? Cause i can get either one of those for around the same price that you are asking....

If you are interested, then send him a PM, if not leave the thread alone. Its issues like this that bring a forum down, constantly. People need to learn some maturity and diplomacy.....Anyway free bump for a nice deck....

It has all the same functions that the 9887 does, except I think the 9855 and 9835 had a different DAC. I've owned/heard all 3, and can't tell a difference. The 9855 does have the external DC/DC converter, whereas I don't believe the 9887 does. The 9886 does not belong in the same conversation as the others. It requires IMPRINT to do anything but basic tuning, which will run you an extra $100-$150 to own (some places rent them for less).

I have never seen a 9887 for $175, but that is neither here nor there. I currently use a 9855 that, just like the guy above, I found on Craigslist for $150, with no manual and no original box. To find a single owner 4 year old HU in mint condition with nothing missing, that has the functionality of the 9855, for $175 is a great deal. Hell, the 880PRS still goes for more than that, and its xover isn't as flexible (for us horn guys). I've also seen the 9835 go for more than this consistently, even though it is a year or two older. This is a great head at a great price. If I didn't own one, it would be gone locally already. ;)

To the OP- Good luck with your sale.

k, ill give ya a pass but next time send a pm if your not sure about things. some forums are pretty sensitive about post dumping and you could find yourself getting banned for it.

I just loved mine alot. alot of the older alpine fans say the 9855 and 9835 were the last quality SQ units that Alpine made before they started making cheaper units. I loved mine and if i needed an HU I'd be making offers. wish I would of kept mine for a rainy day.

I paid 300 bills for mine, but it was a few years ago, it's ran great. If you can handle/get used to the glide touch... which I never really have to use...... it's a peach.
