Then after getting tired of the look of the single DIN and reading your reviews, I went with the 1500 when I got the funds. After having the 9400, I knew HD radio and BT was not important to me, so the 1500 became a no-brainier and I'm glad I did it. According to specs, the 1500 and the 9400 run the same amp, but I swear there is a much better sound quality of the 1500 is better, using the same speaker set-up.
I have all aftermarket gear (JL) and still use the OEM HU. Definitely sounds better than all OEM.
