i figured kenwood would be a better buy i just really was hoping to find someone that had one of these and tell me a little about it...such as how they sound is the interface easy and so on in the end im most likely going with kenwood i know that name better than clarion but wasn't sure how they were now

Clarion makes decent products but Kenwoods HU's are are considered to be some of the best out there up with Pioneer and Alpine.

thx for the input guys i probably am gona ultimately go with the kenwood ive been looking at them for a few weeks now and i am getting anxious to get one... the only reason i had trouble between the two was because the clarion has built in gps and bluetooth and the kenwood you had to purchase that seperatly. i didn't know if the clarion was kinda a too good to be true type of thing or if the kenwood was just not worth all the money for the extra parts but i always liked the look of the kenwood better. im just so confused haha but yeah another weird thing was i couldn't find alot of reviews on either one. there is a video on the kenwood and a couple written reviews about the clarion but thats it. i figured it was because of them being 2010 models...ok well i probably wont be purchasing till i get home later so if any one else has input please add
