Eclipse VS Clarion


Unregistered guest
Hi, im looking at a few different types of decks and would like an opinion if possible. The 3 types are from Alpine, Eclipse and Clarion.
They are:

Eclipse CD8455
Clarion DXZ955MC (2005)
Clarion DXZ945MP (2004)
Alpine CD9855

Any opinion would help im leaning towards eclipse or clarion because I guess the new alpines have lost there touch.If theres anything better by all means tell me, I want the best for what I can buy from 500-1500 dollars. Whats the best?

If you want the best, get the Clarion DRZ9255.

I was just in the same situation.

Dealer said last years eclipse was also better. I know less Volt Pre-outs and features but he felt they were built better and less riced or something I guess...

Ended up getting the CD5444 for REALLY cheap.

I was considering getting the new clarion 955MC for it's features, I heard it was a solid deck, but I expect to get a little more SQ out of the unit I picked, + it was ALOT cheaper, even though I was not on a budget the 5444 felt really solid and like it would last a long time.

Nice brushed alumin face and ruberized knobs. Less features but good build quality. I kinda liked the look of the LCD on the clarion but I was not able to find one in person to check out.
