View Full Version : Exchanging my headunit

03-19-2007, 02:40 PM
Well I am going to be sending my headunit back to Crutchfield. It is just having way too many problems and has ****ed me off enough. I keep getting tuner and antenna errors on top of the radio randomly going into protect. So I am able to exchange it for any radio that is 179.99 at Crutchfield.. sure am glad I ordered through them.

These are my choices.


Any opinions would be great. So far I am leaning toward that Pioneer or that Penasonic thats on sale. The Kenwood left a bad taste in my mouth so I am kinda relunctant to get another one.

if a refund is out of the question...id get something and sell it, and get a better unit for less money elsewhere

that makes no sense. I like the customer service of Crutchfield so I am sticking with them.

If I was in your situation I'd get the Panasonic. Looks good, great reviews and you'll keep the crutch service. Pioneer 4900 would be my second choice.

Thats too bad. One thing about crutchfield, they have good customer service. They will make it right. I kind of like that Pioneer myself.

If you're going to get a Kenwood HU it should always be from the eXcelon line.
They just make 'em better than their "regular" Kenwood-branded stuff. :fyi:

I would say if you can, to buy last years Alpine 9856 or 57 and perhaps buy an equalizer. The only real shortcoming of the Alpine is the lack of equalizer.

Of course im a little biased, but I just think their stuff is best the best looking and performing, and durable. They just feel solid built, but its up to your preferences.
