I just purchased a new Alpine CDA-9887 to upgrade my daily commute car. It'll be matching with McIntosh amplification, Eclipse component mains and in-door Tang Band subs. My main intent in my commute cars is always the best SQ possible. My question: does anyone here have experience with Alpine's Imprint system? Is it worth the $200 for the calibration mic and interface or should I stick with my tried and true EQ based on RTA readings?

Thoughts anyone?
I like your setup! You will have to let me know as you go what you make of the 9887. I ran the 9885 I think it was, had the slider for easy file acces... was an awesome deck... 4volt, 3 pre out, had an option to make front rca HP for tweet, 2nd band pass mid, and rear LP.... but how many people could really use that?

I haven't heard much good about using the Alpine mic's to do auto-adjust, just as well as I havent heard the best with HT receivers using this option either... but I didn't really look into it. I've just over heard it along the way.

Tang Bands... nice! It came down to those vs my Extremis. Got the Extremis.

Yeah check the link here....it's like $50 to use it for a bit and then return ithttp://www.crutchfield.com/p_500KTX100E/Alpine-KTX-100EQ.html?search=imprint&ssi=0


Either that or maybe try and find someone in your area that has it and just borrow it :)
wow that is awesome! An excellent idea, sure it helps their HU sales... thats like renting Advanced Auto's tools to install their parts.

I don't know if there's ediquet standards to linking to other forums, so if this disappears I'll understand :) but someone is asking about this head unit on ROE and someone replied back specifically about the Imprint
