Jensen VM9314 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
I would have given this unit 5 stars because of all the functions that it offers, but there are just too many small things that it is lacking. The equalizer only gives you 3 bands to adjust, which adjust for all speakers. There is no way to turn off the subwoofer low pass crossover frequency. Once the interface takes its time to boot up, it is pretty snappy and responsive. It took me a bit to figure out how to switch to HD2 stations (doesnt say in the manual). When the main screen is out, the mini lcd at the bottom basically sits there blank, but fully backlit-- this should have been used to display time.
Other than these small things, this is a great unit. The only things I have heard about Jensen is how bad they are and how you had better buy the extended warranty with it, but this completely blew my expectations away. The screen is amazing quality, as is the motorized track that moves it in and out. The sound is definitely better than my factory headunit, but could be better if it offered more detailed frequency tuning like other non dvd headunits offer. Bottom line is, if your looking for a cheap, midrange single-din dvd headunit, this is the best there is!
Love it so far
1999 Ford Expedition
The remote wire for the amp doesn't give enough voltage. So i had to switch to the acc wire for my amp no more problem's with that. I keep all my daughters movies on an ipod so i bought because it has the ability to play ipod video which it does very well. Second problem or dislike depending on how you want to look at it is you can't hook up the ipod wire from the rear. So you have that ugly cable hanging out of the radio running to yor ipod granted you can unplug it but still so much for a clean look. Sound is good not the best but then again still using stock door speakers only running a sub for fill. Dvd play's video's very well image quality is great. Another problem is when the face flips open after turning on my truck it's tilted slightly forward. Either close screen then open it again so it goes to set position or adjust it with the knob. Last complaint no clock when playing video. Other than that it does what i need from it very well.
