Great Deal

Brendon, Crutchfield

  • Summary: I was looking for a basic stereo receiver, with built in Bluetooth functionality, and good audio quality. I have definitely found it in this deck. Super easy to install, I had never installed a stereo myself before. Don't waste your money on paying someone to install it. Youtube is your best friend.
  • Cons: Would like to be able to set the volume for the audio, and the blue tooth audio to be the same level. Right now if you are listening to Bluetooth audio or making a phone call and switch to the radio or cd the audio is ridiculously loud!

  • Summary: Great stereo with powerful sound. A major step up from my sony stereo, which was a piece of trash. I will never buy Sony again. Pushing my alpine speakers and 2-12" subs perfectly fine. Although I still cant figure out the bluetooth phonecall microphone to work, but it may just be me.
  • Pros: Intuitive layout. User friendly faceplate.
  • Cons: Buttons that toggle folders via usb and repeat options do not light up, so its difficult to see what Im pressing while driving at night. Biggest annoyance: When on bluetooth audio setting, it will not emit sound when i play something off my phone. I have to toggle thru CD, radio, aux, usb, BACK T...

Great Stereo Head

KevinM, Crutchfield
28 November 2015
  • Summary: I'd purchased a cheaper head to provide BT, CD, and USB support. It was a nightmare of unfinished software. As far as I can tell at this point the Alpine does everything right. Tuner performance is good, sound quality is great, all functions work smoothly.
  • Pros: good tuner performance. allows volume balancing of all source inputs. Uses the car light control input to auto-dim. Great sound quality.
  • Cons: nothing

Alpine CDE 143BT is an outstanding little system

MikeM, Crutchfield
11 November 2015
  • Summary: I have a 2001 Mercedes E320 and the radio finally died and I ordered this Alpine to replace it after seeing so many good reviews. What a nice little system this is. I have the Bose sound system in my Mercedes and this radio sounds great. Bluetooth connectivity to it with my iPhone was a breeze.
  • Pros: Feature set for the money Sound quality
  • Cons: None

Good basic cd player w/Ipod hookups

Charlie C., Crutchfield
3 November 2015
  • Summary: The Alpine CDE-143BT was an easy install in my 2002 Tahoe. The wiring connectors and plugs provided hooked with little problem; I just have to use one wire from the smaller GM plug and add it to the radio plug to run the original installed subwoofer.
