Hey I would like to know if anyone can tell me does flip up screen monitors make good compition head units and if so what are going to be some of the best quality flip up screen head units for competion. If flipups are not good for comp then let me know what non flip up head units are going to be the best quality. Right now I have a Alpine 7998 and was thinking of upgrading to the Alpine IVA-D900. Need some help please. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]
If you are using an outboard processor for eq and x-over...the 900 is a great choice. The 7998 and the 900 would sound identical in most respects, but the 7998 has tons more processing power. If used solely as a source unit, either are great choices. They both have about the same number of moving parts(faces...screens...etc.) so the reliablilty would be about the same. If you plan on using the PXA-H700, then definately get the IVA-D900.
