the 7200 will spank anything JVC makes.. period..
do not let the 14w rms fool ya they do 27w rms ;) the 14x4 rms is a 1/2 spec rating pioneer uses for cea spec only and is extremely under rated..
and it has more features as well...alot more... not many JVC decks can do active....almost 75% of the pioneers will :) the 7200 is 1 of the best decks on the market for a very good reason..
and the speaker output rating is pretty meaningless for most people... they use amps...if they are not amping the speakers the Pioneers will still put out more clean unclipped power than even the alpines will..
the good Alpine decks are long gone..
my 9813 does more than the new 9887 w/imprint does.. and has a true 35w rms x6!! via the vdrive amplifier ;) it has more eq options timealignment ( built in...) 6 volt true power rcas.. all for 450 9 yrs ago.. the 9887 with the imprint that still cant touch my 9813/15 is well over 800.. ( when it was new )..
food for thought when comparing stale apples to sweet tangeloes :)
also alot of people miss the sub spec on almost all pioneer decks
the rear channel can be bridged to do 70rms at 2 ohm for a small sub ;) or a set of 6" midbass drivers like all the monsoon systems use stock...
