Buy the interface or NO?

Im going to be buying an alpine deck and they suggest the pac2 interface because of the stock speakers. I do not plan on upgrading my speakers in the near future, but there is always a chance.. some people have told me i dont need this interace, while otheres have.. I dont want a nightmare wiring up this head unit. i want it as easy as possible.. i am going to be making the purchase next week and would like some opinions

buy or no?

Ok...from what i have read and what i have been told by people that work on audio systems...they say you dont need it...but if you don't use it when you turn the volume up it will get louder faster and blast the speakers and may blow your stocks out...if you get the pac-2 then it will control the volume making it more like your stock unit and wont be soo sensitive when you turn it up...i'm changing mine soon and i will be buyin it ...it looks hard to wire up but i would go for it better to be safe then sorry

i hope this helps you a little

Anytime they make an interface it makes a lot easier install. Do you need it? Not really, but it does make it easier and if you want to go back to factory (like at selling time), it makes a seamless reinstall, and no one will ever know that you had an aftermarket headunit in there.
