Does voltage on preouts really make a difference??


Unregistered guest
ok, I got a 1.5 year old JVC deck thats got 4v preouts going to my amp (which can handle 6v). the cd player is being screwy lately so i'm thinking of buying a new one.

My question is, looking at the new '05 Alpine models, (more specifically 9851) they only have 2v preouts. so is this gonna make a difference in sound quality by sending a weaker signal to the amp??

on a different subject, what do you guys think of the new Clarion proaudio decks (DXZ555, DXZ655, DXZ755)

thanks in advance

The higher the pre-out voltage, the cleaner and stronger the signal will be to the outboard amp. However their are other things that effect SQ in the HU not just the preout voltage.

Alpines are known for good quality HUs so i think it will be just fine.
