98 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer
This unit is an all in one system head unit. If you are looking for quality sound w/o video, DVD etc., this is the only uinit a 2 din that can create a tight sound stage and look good doing it.
I will agree a non-removable face plate is a huge weakness for a vehicle that is parked on a street daily.
Also if you dont have the dash space this isn't a unit that makes sense for you.
OK I read other reviews and I will disagree with most of there complaints:
I have never had a CD jamb. Its never scratched a CD either. I find this to almost be physically impossible to occur with the design, unless its damaged before hand.
I have never had anyone try to steal it, its too dark of a face to see it in a vehicle at night. If your car has been broken into more than once, stop flaunting your gear and then parking it out in the open, garage it everywhere. Oh yea get a better alarm with a remote that notifies you of it activation from up to a 1.5 miles away (Compustar!, It really works over one MILE away)
One reviewer stated you should buy the extended warranty: Hopefully you read the manual and noted all Alpine products installed by a authorized dealer comes with a 3 yr warranty, dont pay circut city, best buy, etc. for a warranty you already get, the already got too much of your $$$.
