i dont think he actually installed the 9831. I think he ordered the 9831, then changed his mind and got the 9883 instead.

I didnt sell the 9870, its goes into the Alto.

And I didnt get the 9833 coz it's a 2 year old model. Its a great HU though. I dont think they have it anymore as it was sold too last 2 days ago.

Maaaaash! If it was me, I would've definitely taken 9833!
Other than some latest tech and features like full speed iPod controls etc.. 9833 is one great HU. Very good crossover controls, good pre outs, stable performer and build quality far far better than the current gen Alpines.
Are you sure he sold it off?

Now, 988 series of HUs are way better than their predecessor, 985 series. Many features which were omitted has been brought back. Build quality has improved by a good margin. Very good menu orientation and key layouts. A bit warmer sounding too (is it in my mind?).

Now that you've bought the HU, what are the further plans ahead?
Heard you're getting Alpine Type R components and sub. Have you decided on these?

Big difference

I learned a costly lesson today

1) Dont keep amp under the seat
2) Dont keep unopened soda in your car near your amp!

I hope things work fine once the water evaporates away else my next buy will be a mono.

Any idea about MRP F500's price (grey and b&W )

JK, remove the amp, unscrew it and give a nice hot-air flow from your hair dryer.. it'll be all set!

Will he first unscrew it or will he first remove it. I think he can remove it only if he first unscrew it or the other way round.

LBM sir, you're just getting too much in the details.. :-)

Idea is to open the amp and give it hot-air-blow!

Bet that's a relief.

Nothing happens to an amp usually if it gets wet on the insides, so long as its not powered up at the time and its completely dry when you power it up again.
