I am looking for online car stereo sales. I want an Alpine unit so Crutchfield is out. What other places are decent to work with and sell Alpine. The deck I am looking at is $330 at Circuit City and American. It runs 60x4 with 3 sets of preouts, and a ton of other crap. It is also cheaper than a comparable Pioneer, but the Pioneer only runs 45x4. The sales guy told me that it needed a power wire from the bnattery to keep from blowing fuses. Quite a powerful deck.

Your better off getting a head unit WITHOUT internal amps and running an external one off the RCA outs.

The amps built into a head unit are usualy single pack-ics, not capable of good clean power. The other problem is the power supply in the head unit itself cannot usualy produce enough power to push those amps AND run the head unit itself. Ever notice that the display dims when you crank up the volume? The power needed to run the cd player itself is being robbed by those current hungry amps.
