hey all, I just got back from the stereo shop today. I bought a new amp and sub. The amp is an alpine MRPM200 and the subwoofer is a 12" JL12w3. I'm still debating on witch deck to get. I'm leaning towards a Panasonic, they just got the new decks at the shop and they looked pretty kick ass. Since my last stereo was stolen I'm going to make sure this one doesn't (not easily anyway). I'll be workin on the trunk this weekend, I'm gonna roll on some Rhyno-liner. Hopefully that will seal my mysterios(sp?) leak.

Please feel free to make some suggestions on the deck, I'll probably purchase it on sunday

"Pioneer" is the only way to go. I think. I've had pretty much every other head unit. And the pioneer has been the best for me. Easy to use, fine tuneing it, takes the abuse of heat and cold fine, plays all kinds of cds. Also my HU has the DFS alarm. Dont know about newer decks but when the face is off and one of the door switchs is tripped(You have wire it to door switchs) it sends a really high pitch whistle through the speakers.

just my .02

I had an alpine head unit in my 96 jetta. I really liked it. I took it out when I got my gti, and had it installed into my girlfriends car.

I have a Kenwood eXcelon deck and I absolutely love it. Try Crutchfield.com, they sell Kenwood.

holy shit man. you spent double on your head unit than what I spent on my entire system. do you enter shows?

BTW, the alpine amp went back. I got a phoenix gold tantrum 200.2 instead. I also went with the panasonic CQDFX403 cd player. The deck is VERY blue, I won't be needing neon tubes in my car
. I'll be installing the sub and amp tommorrow so maybe I'll get some pics!

i have always wondered, when do you get time to play, and how long does your battery last? to me, a game system stays at home, and you only drive, or chill with the women in a car. maybe thats just me.
