Christmas is comming, and "Santa" a.k.a. my parents, need to know what i want for christmas.. I've narrowed what i want down to an Alpine CDA-9813 ( http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/1301
) and, the Clarion DXZ835MP ( http://www.ikesound.com/product-product_id/1231
What should i get? They both look nice but the Alpine needs a direct fused connection to the battery. It'* also 60x4 with front rear and sub preamp outs.
The Clarion is 53x4 with the same preamp outs, but doesn't require a fused connection to the battery.
They both play Mp3'*, but the Alpine has a parametric EQ, whereas i think
the Clarion only has preset EQ settings. The Clarion is cheaper and has multi color display.
Also, they both have wireless remote capability. Is this compatible with the steering wheel controls adapter? Or does it only send an infrared signal. I'm assuming maybe the term "wireless" could possibly mean the signal travels at RF frequencies??? This is the case with our satellite remote controls (for home TV); They can be used outside and still control the TV.
