The new alpine is the way to go imo, the wireless commander units are the cats azz.

Not sure exactly what you are lookning for, but this is a great unit, and it is a seal right now, plus free wired remote, if ya wanna save even more, they have a refurbished(no remote) in their outlet for $99

Lots. Any local dealers you can check out? I sell a lot of Wet Sounds at my shop for the boat installs. For head units I always recommend Alpine or Clarion, depending on the customer's need and budget.

Absolutely. The head units are excellent, and sound quality is much better then most of the comparable head units. Remotes are great.

Junk. Plain and simple. In the car audio game, you get what you pay for. They have 2,000 watt amps that weigh 5 pounds and cost under $200. That equals out to about 100 watts of true power.

It depends on where the equipment is located. If you're sure that you'll never get the head unit wet or exposed to moisture, you'll be okay with standard car audio. In my last Baja, I just used a normal Alpine head unit with a billet enclosure from xaudiocovers and never had a problem. I had been caught out in a storm but had the passenger keep the face covered with a towel. For speakers, I do suggest marine grade due to sunlight, heat, and possibly moisture. Amps, if they're in a cabin, being marine grade is pointless, but won't hurt. In the end, you're not totally limited to marine-grade equipment, but it really depends on what piece it is and where it will be.
