Both Eclipse and Alpine make very good units that just hook into the existing amplified system that is already in the car. Eclipse is good for Sirius users, Alpine for XM. The Eclipse is a bit better in that the OUTPUT voltage is a little higher, which drives the amps better. I just put one in my 500E and it rocks. Set up for Sirius and iPod, it covers everything I could want to listen to.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
