    I was gonna say - to call alpine overhyped is a bit....of an uneducated comment maybe??

    there is a reason a company like Alpine has the status that they do. It's because their products are outstanding in terms of build quality, sound, reliablity, support, etc, etc, etc

    I could go on and on about that

    if you JUST look at the basic numbers then sure, I can see where you would say that PG is a better company....but the sad truth is that basic specs don't really mean jack when it comes to car audio....

    if it were me and my car, or any system that I were recomending to someone, I would bypass the PG and go with alpine any day of the week.....but that's just me....apparently I expect a little more out of my time/money/equipment than everyone else....lol

    alpine is no where near a high end company people just hear the word alpine and associate it with something that is good. It is a mid level company similar to rf. Although PG did have a few problems with a line of their amps they did correct this problem. Alpine only makes outstanding headunits and signal. Their amps and speakers are not on the same level at all. And i dont go by basic numbers othewise i would be saying legacy is good.

    I'm thinkin I'll go Alpine they seem to be the only company that has an all around general consesis of superiority, theres no one that rags on them just people that think there are other better options. Also they seem to be the only company that makes every component of a system for a reasonable price.

    I'd like to know where you got the idea that Alpine makes things for a reasonable price. There are a lot better setups out there nowadays. Also, Alpine is heavily considering ditching the consumer market altogether and going strictly OEM.

    Pioneers are better headunits. Infinity and Polk are better speakers. MTX, Audiobahn, and many others are better amps. About the only decent thing they had were Subs, and now that they went from Type-R to Type-S, even that's downhill.

    i dont agree with the statement you made about audiobahn. Audiobahn makes low quality amps except for their extremely high end stuff.

    opinions are like assholes aren't they?

    go make a post about how awesome ferrari's are and i'll bet someone will post saying they suck.

    I'm sure you'll enjoy your alpine amps. Mine have produced very clean power so far for my infinity speakers and i've been very pleased.

    ebay, and its funny that you say that because in my explorer i have a Pioneer DEH-7600MP, INfinity Kappa 6x8s and Audiobahn subs. But also any strictly audio site you go claims Audiobahn is crap.

    audiobahn= for looks - many people i know have fried audiobahn equipment
    alpine = over priced because of the name, stay away from there subwoofers
    pg = they make some ok stuff, and some really good stuff. id probly avoid there octane-r line because it seems cheap. there tantrum and titanium amps are very good. so are the speakers that match.
