ok folks,so this is the first time i've ever posted a thread...EVER! So i recently got back into the car audio and had to pull the old alpine 7949 & alpine 3555 out of the closet & install them in my car along with some type r 6x9 in front & rear. Got the itch after many years sooo here i go again! WOW! Forgot how great that equipment sounded. Want to update my headunit so i can use my ipod again..thinking about trying to find a Pioneer prs-800. Copper plated chassis, You can turn the internal amp off..etc. I want the best of both worlds...SQ if i want to listen to a cd & ipod hookup....ideas,comments??
