Hi D1. The alpine and Pioneer have different signature sounds and cater to select audiences. As you can see, my entire setup is absolutely SQ oriented. I'd keep all settings flat in my Pioneer 7950 and still not enjoy the experience. Doing the same in my alpine brings a smile on my face. Even more importantly, NOW somehow i cant do without time alignment. I dunno if your Pioneer has it, but mine didn't. Besides that, the tuning also matters. For all you know a well tuned alpine Spl setup may sound way better than a poorly tuned pio. Vice versa with a well tuned sq setup on a pioneer as opposed to a badly tuned sq setup on the alp. Hope you get what i'm trying to convey. I have a great installer who doesn't leave a stone unturned in tuning it right

@ankit, the rear fills have the Boss Rca. Quite inconsequential ya i might change the rcas for all the speakers but in some time.
