Brian- yup, Crutchfield's customer service kicks ass. I've bought from them for about 10 years now, and I still love it. I'm just glad that they carry Alpine now! If the price disparity isn't too much, I just buy from Crutchfield. Sometimes I find the best prices at www.autotoys.com though, and they're pretty good too.
