    one way people have found out about woofersetc.com is that the serial numbers have been scratched off. not saying that that makes the product fake, but rather it's highly illegal to ship something like that acorss state lines.

    Makes you wonder about the rest of their practices.

    I've heard reports of people recieving fakes from them as well.

    As for telling if your amp is real. Find one that you know is real and compare the two.

    Thumbs up

    Well, my Alpine MRP-F450 looks exactly the same as the one mounted on the wall at Best Buy. Never bothered to check the serial numbers. I figured that if it ended up breaking I could just send it to Alpine to have it repaired and it would still be cheaper than buying it new.

    It may look the same, but if it's not a real alpine, they will laugh in your face if you try and send it in to be fixed.

    They could just send me a new one out, say they fixed it, and charge me some outrageous price. Or they could actually fix it, and again charge me. It's not like it's warranty work. They make money off of it. Unless they'd be afraid that it would fail again and they'd have to warranty the repair. But I'm assuming most conterfeit Alpine stuff is just brick and mortar retail models with the serial numbers scratched off. Meaning it actually is Alpine, so they'd know how to fix it and wouldn't have to worry about the repair failing. I'll go check the serial number out and report back.

    Crutchfield sells it.

    I cannot vouch for any of those companies though.

    I never purchase car audio equipment online.
    Ok, after a self imposed delay, I finally decided on a system and started buying stuff. I decided on Polk components/subs and alpine amps and processing. PXA-H701, RUX-C701, Chaintech AV-710, MRV-F545, Polk momo MM2104 10" SVC sub (2), Polk Momo MMC6500 6.5"/1" seperates up front. all media fed from the PC via optical AV-710 and the optical out on the alpine Sirius unit mod.
    I found an ebay seller 310audio for most of the alpine components. Ill let everyone know how it goes.

    Thanks to everyone on this thread for helping me decide!

    I have been researching the h701 and I am most def going to buy it. I have a questions though...I will get the h701 and the rux-c701. I am also going to have a headunit up front in my glove box probably. How would you incorporate the h70, carpc sound card AND the HU all together.

    I will connect the carPC to the h701 via optical input. On the h701 RCA output, it will go to the HU. And ofcourse the RCA inputs will come from the amps. MY question is, lets say If i want to listen to the radio on the HU and stop listening to the carpc how would I achieve that. The way I look at it as, since there are two inputs and how do I switch from HU to carPC? do i switch via the rux-c701?

    That is not how your supposed to use it, but yes. If you want to have 2 sources, you can access the H701 settings and change the input from analog to digital, then it will be switched. It's not something that is easy to do while driving though.

    Why not just add a FM tuner card to the PC if you have to have it?

    Well the PC FM Radio really sucks...really bad reception i had the RadioXtreme and it was horrible. I wanna try the HQTC usb version when it comes out. I guess I will have to see then...

    Also another big problem with me is that I have my slim dvd drive molded into the dash and the stupid thing doesnt work. Well let me say it works but I can find a slim to usb adapter that is fully functional! SO the dvd drive is useless.... Thats a reason why i also use my HU!

    If you download the manual for the h701 it will outline the button presses that need to be done.

    Can anybody tell me if the color change thing is possible with the RUX-C701? I am doing all lighting for show with my car, and would really hate to have this be the only different color. But I do really want the setup.
