    JL Audio would be my pick between those two but I am bias. I know the old Alpine PDX had issues with noise.

    I heard about that supposedly the new model got rid of that issue. I'm not really worried about price more so quality.

    On paper the Alpine is better due to it's higher signal to noise ratio frankly I'd go with the Alpine just for the lower price because the little thing's that make it different aren't going to be noticeable running mid level speakers.

    What do you mean by mid level speakers?

    Speakers such as Alpine, Kenwood, most Pioneer's, basically most stuff that you can buy from Crutchfield. They are great speakers but aren't the absolute best to be had. When I say high level I'm referring to ScanSpeak, Hertz Mille, speakers of that nature that are in the thousands of dollar range.
