I agree with Bikin, now that he mentions it.
Alpine has a flat rate so that would be a lot cheaper.

I don't have one that needs fixing. I want the parts mainly the rca outs and the wire harness. Instead of buying the parts around $300 or so. Maybe someone had a burnt out unit that's beyond repair

yeah your right foosman I remember seeing a 7990 with the cd dead and missing the dc dc box sell for well over $500.

The sound output on my 7909j went out today. I have a scored replacement parts (luck me). Since I have to send this one in for repairs I want to upgrade my rca connectors and I like the look of the 7990 harness over the rats nest I have now. There's a reason why these parts are about $100ea.

My unit has no DC/DC either but the harness is worth it -the guy is good. But it's still a rats nest-trust me. Even with out the PS-there is a ton of wiring you really don't need:
1.RCA
2.Alpine thingie
3. Optical

Also you change the output from RCA to Optical and analaog (alpine thingie) no probs from the HU. So you dont really need to get that fancy. I mean at the end of the day -if it's about SQ -then it CDs/digital whatever -and then tweaking the output after the processor to get the best sound.

So you don't need to do anything.
I am doing optical + Alpine -it works fine.

I'm mainly doing this for looks. I love my 7909J and wouldn't mind making it look better.

Besides I decided against the J for my EG civic. V6 would be nice, but a friend having $ issues sold me his LSvtec with supercharger, si 5spd, mounts, ecu, wriring, exhaust for about $2000cdn. I'm like,.... 260hp swap for $2k cdn.... fawk
