Product Information

MSRP: $800.00
Average Price: $204.74
Manufacturer: /////Alpine
Yes: 28 / No: 0

This deck is a competition alpine cd player compatible with windows media, sirius satellite, mp3, HD radio, and has connectors specifically for ipod. its ideal for anyone looking for a simple good sounding deck, its not flashy but it looks good and it gets the job done. it has a built in bass engine amplifier for smaller speakers to put out more bass which does the job quite well actually, it has a clean look that suitsw a jeep very well. at night the haunting green and blue glow it emitts is a perfect addition to the interior and dash of your jeep. with removeable falldown faceplate its perfect for a jeep owner with no doors or roof, or for security and peace of mind. i find my Alpine to be the best stereo headunit ive owned, and for the price the quality is unbeatable.

Cons: None

Comments: Ive had this deck for 9 years. Its been transplanted into many vehicles. Had it services at best buy once in 2010 because CDs were not ejecting due to dust. They cleaned it and it has worked like a champ ever since. Alpine is my brand of choice.

Price: $1.00
Pros: Ipod Connectivity
Cons: Can't charge Ipod while playing.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Came with my 2002 Wrangler from previous owner. Not much to complain about as far as sound quality and options. I may use my FM transmitter instead of the Ipod connection, though, since it does not charge while playing.

All around good head unit but you could easily find a better one.

Comments: I love the ipod controls, to be able to keep the ipod hidden and still choose playlists and search music is very helpful. that and the price are the main reasons i purchased this unit

Comments: great unit but i hate the ipod hook up. i mean direct connect is great but, you have to control the ipod with the head unit and it is a pain when you are in a jeep. but other then that great sound and has held up well in the yj..

Comments: Awesome Unit, it came with the jeep when I bought it, and it really cranks, I can barely handle it turned only halfway up, and it really puts the Infinity system to work, awesome stereo, puts my old JVC unit to shame
