do you use the BEEP of your head unit?

ive always considered it very important, i dont know why... i could stand fine not using it on any other system besides car audio, since no other has it, but with car audio i always felt the need of having it present every press or click... i dont know why i felt this way, but today things have changed drasticly... i now can't stand this **** no more lol

so i ask you peeps.. what's the real purpose of the beep in only car audio and not in any other audio system used indoors??? do the real car audio experts use it?

this is really weird i think :eyebrow:

i think if you have no sense of touch and sight you need to turn the BEEP on in case youre not sure if you even pressed the button.

I like the beep. It just seems to confirm what you pressed. I got in a car today with no beep on the radio and i wasnt sure if i adjusted something when I pushed it. Its weird, but I need it.

I don't have a choice in the matter...

Seemingly Kenwood head units only output that confirmation tone through the speaker outputs but not the preamp outputs. Since I am not driving any speakers with the deck I don't hear that beep whether it's turned on in the menu or not.

When I did have the option, though, I always left it on.

I think if you're driving you dont want to have to look at the HU to see if you pushed the button successfully or not.

:word:


My HU has a remote, and when using it in conjunction with the beep function, and I can adjust my HU without ever having to take my eyes off the road. Just keep the remote in my hand, and listen for the beeps as I press the buttons. If it beeps "correctly" then I know I was successful :thumbupw:

Depends on your HU. Most of them do.

i am a fan of the beep just because my old factory Hu didn't have it

I need it because sometimes my commands from my pac swix do not pick up, so this confirms it for me.

I like it because you can count the number of tracks you just skipped through without taking your eyes off the road to look at what number you're on.

Most decks that have remotes have direct track access - no need to skip through any number of tracks at all, just punch in the number of whatever cut ya want :)

Well, my P.O.S. doesn't have a remote or ANY other nice feature, so I need the beep. :)

Can't wait to upgrade!
