I am installing alpine ixa-w407 into a 2000 suzuki grand vitara. is there anything i should know aside from hooking up the harness and antenna from vehicle into the alpine?

You should check to see if it has an remote out in the back ...cause if you are planing to install an amplifier will need it ...cause amplifiers (specially for woofers ) are connecting to the power directly to the + of the battery ..and the - on the body (ground) ..and it is switched on the remote cable attached on the player ..This way it will power on in the same time and also react on the break on ..and when the key is switched off.
Also for an amplifier it should have rca out separate from teh normal left and right stereo going to the speakers ..
The rest is just standard harness ..

Whats the best alpine 6x9? dds-r69g,sps-6939,spr or others

All of these work nice, remember the quality of the sound depends primarily on the source ( car stereo and/amp) and then the speakers, you need to know what Ohm and what watt is the minimum requirement for your sound system.

Removing alpine receive from dash

Unless you have the 'keys' that came with the unit, you'll need an Alpine dealer to a) get keys so you can remove yourself (wiring just un-plugs) or b) installer. CStereo mfgrs use different snap-lock mechanisms and sometime different keys for different models.

Alpine CDA 9825, wife hit a series of buttons, now I only see what is on the display when I change a station or turn vehicle on. How do I get the text back on the display?

i would suggest unplugging the wiring harness from the back of the alpine terminal (you will need to basically take out your stereo). then plug it back in, roll the key back in you car (to give power to the stereo) and see if it works. if not, take it into you local visions electronics and ask them to look at it for you

I have a Alpine CDA-9851R CD player and I cant turn the volume above 17.I have a amplifier and subwofer fitted in the boot.The problem started after one of my friends was playing with it.

this probably isnt it but my stereo got messed up like that because i think i turned it up and down way to much. maybe try pulling the volume button out and putting it back in.
