Alpine KTP-445A with the Alpine CDE-163BT CD Receiver
2008 Ford Escape
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I initially bought the Alpine CDE-163BT CD Receiver with two sets of the Infinity REF-8602cfx 6"x 8"/5" x 7" 2-way Speakers to replace my stereo. I knew that down the road that I would end up buying a sub as well just to complete it. After the initial installation of the receiver and the speakers the sound was so much better than the factory. I expected that it would be but I just did not know that the difference would be that great. With that said I was wanting to be able to put a little more power to those door speakers both for now and then when I get the amp. This would give me better clarity now and to also ensure that I don't drown them out down the road with the installation of the sub since the power pack will provide extra power to the door speakers. Well I was definitely not disappointed. The sound quality that was already great only got better once this was installed. I wish that I would have bought it when I purchased the receiver to begin with.
Pros: Excellent addition to the Alpine Receiver Installation was plug and play Sound quality is amazing
Cons: None that I have seen
