Favorite HU/Processer

I want to step up to a active system and other than Alpine I'm not sure on what else is out there. I have a lower end Eclipse deck with no Xover and was thinking of changing up. The only set-up Ive seen is the Alpine DVA9860/PXA-H701 and it looked like a slick combo but wondered what else is out there that will work for me? I have not found any other HU/processer units that will do a 4 way system. What type of units do you favor for active systems? Are there HU that do 4 ways without a seperate processer
Thanx

As far as other HU/prc combo's there's the Pioneer P9 set, the clarion 9255, and it's processor, as well as the heavily debated F#1 combo.....

All great packages with their pro's and cons; some with less cons than others though

I noticed your sig SQ Civic you are running the Alpine combo
Would you do it again or try one of the others?
Any downfalls or things your not happy with?

Holly crap I just seen the price of the F-1 and its way out of my price range!

Exclamation

Besides the Pioneer Premier DEX-P9/DEQ-P9 combo, if you can still find one, the Pioneer Premier DEX-P1 & DEX-P1R could do a four-way setup WITHOUT A SEPARATE PROCESSOR!
If you can find someone who really doesn't realize the potential of these units (the last DEX-P1 I saw was selling for $299) you might be able to get a steal of a deal!
Good luck!

I second the above. Also Pioneer ODR. And I think the Sony C90 with the XDP 4000 (?!?). Personally, I've always liked the pioneer stuff. Doesn't Audio Control now have a 4-way.

BTW, when you say four way, are you only talking about needs for a x-over or do you want the tuning as well? I think there's still some 4-way x-overs out there that you can mate up with 31 band EQs etc, etc. Put bits and pieces together
