Hey guys I can get a brand new Jensen VM9311 for $198+ tax...what do you guys think?

It will be going in my GF's system. Consists of the following:

Fronts: CDT CL-61's amped.
Rear: Alpine SPR17lp' coaxes,

Subs: 2 Alpine type S's in a 2 cube sealed box

havnt figured out the sub amp yet... nor head unit... but this seems like a killer *** price even if it is jensen...

This isnt a SPL system, nor SQ... and I know the jensen deck isnt all great with SQ...

Discuss....Much Appreciated.

it's 200$. i had one and it was probably worth 200. wasn't worth the 500 i paid.

^^ Yeah I understand...Im basing this on the price of the unit itself, not the quality of the unit.

$$ seems like a bomb *** price

i agree considering they are going for around 250-300 on ebay.

So you ended up getting it? How much did the extras end up costing?

if you do get it, do a search, there is a way to bypass the emergency brake by entering a code in the remote

yeah I would definately be bypassing the unit... still undecided on if I should get it or not... I know its sellin for 250-300 on ebay.. so its a bomb *** price... so the question is...

$200 too much for a JENSEN?.....ahhh im still 50-50

Again this is not a super SQ setup, its pretty much decent stuff.

..Im going to kick myself in the face for spending $200 on a jensen...although playing with the 9411 in the store is pretty amusing...

the screen is great and crisp, but all the eq settings **** and preout voltage blows.. I had to get an add on eq/linedriver just to get decent sound.. and the EQ worked wonders.. I wish i coulda put $$25 on a better quality HU than spending $350 for Jensen and $75 for EQ.. Im tellin u... ur speakers will never sound the same, unless u put an amp and linedriver on it

well the front speakers will be amped, the rears would be running off the jensen...which is okay because im not in the rear of the car anyways...

I had the 9311ts (I think?) in my work truck for about 8 months and never had a problem with it. Its job was to play dvd's for me during the day (i drive 400+ miles a day) and it did its job without a single problem.

I think its through his Tweeter store and may include his discount. Not sure though.

You know my vote.

It's nothing special SQ wise, but for a basic system for your girlfriend's car, it will do fine. Mine sounded a-ok when I had one. Definitely worth the money.
