    Moved to the Car Audio forum.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

    Agree with Scott_Fx

    Also, the Alto Mobile has the possiblity of noise problems if you do a little searching (Just have to be careful about ground loops). Also the S/N ratio is kind of low.

    Eclipse makes good products but sound adjustments are harder to use than the Alpine. IMO

    Th JL is good if you want to interface with your stock stereo.

    Zapco makes good products. Have never used that processor though.

    Audiobahn- Rumors where that the company is not doing so well. (products are medicore quality)

    I like the Alpine, super easy to use and sounds great!

    The others I have not used or have no experience with.

    these are not sound effect processors....they don't add in a bunch of effects, no reverb, none of that.

    and I'll back up what others have said, there is an entire thread dedicated to this at the top of the car audio forum, be sure to check it out.
