I have had an Alpine 9855 for a while, having just used the onboard amp to run stock speakers in my 02 Toyota Tundra.
But now will be adding some speakers and amps to the picture (OZ Matrix CS130's in the doors, and 2 ID8's in QLogic box under rear seat. Amps will be either Soundstream or Xtant on the doors, and Alpine MRV M500 on the subs.
I just picked up a Pioneer AVH3300BT, mainly because I wanted a backup camera ... but am wondering now in terms of SQ will I be taking a step backward using the Pioneer instead of the Alpine as my head unit ? Don't plan on using active X-overs as I think the passive units on the OZ's are pretty darn good.
Welcome any thoughts or opinions, thanks!
