I've heard nothing but crap about the Alpine but when I tried it it was better than other recievers rated higher than it. I've heard nothing but good things about the Kenwood but have never tested it. Here's my question: I have 2 61/2's & 2 6X9's currently and plan to upgrade to 2 12 inch subs later. I am a sound quality & bass freak and i want to know which of these HU's will give me more bass and sound. Please help me Alpine $189 Kenwood$189
id go with the alpine. but you could also get the 9831 alpine for like 50 more dollars.
