Bluetooth at a bargain

Kenwood's KDC-BT318U CD receiver gives you Bluetooth® for hands-free calling convenience, plus a wireless connection to the songs stored on your compatible music player. If you're an Android® user who's grown tired of your old radio's complicated Bluetooth pairing issues, you'll love this receiver's simple, secure pairing (SSP) technology. If you're an iPhone® aficionado, the KDC-BT318U gives you full Siri Eyes Free control with compatible Siri-equipped iPhones.

Pair your compatible phone to the KDC-BT318U and you can talk hands-free by simply touching the dedicated "phone" button when a call comes in. And the receiver can reply automatically to text messages to let your contacts know that you're busy driving. You can place the external Bluetooth microphone in an optimal location within the vehicle for improved hands-free communication.

Stream radio from your phone

If you enjoy Internet radio on your iPhone or Android, you'll really enjoy playing music from Pandora® and iHeartRadio® radio on this great-sounding receiver. You can scroll through your stations, bookmark songs, and give a thumbs-up or thumbs-down right from the receiver's face.

One versatile USB port

The KDC-BT318U's front-panel USB port allows you to access and control the music stored on your iPhone or Android phone. And if you have MP3, WMA, or WAV music files on a thumb drive, the USB port can handle those too. Here's a cool feature from Kenwood — Drive Change allows you to connect a memory card reader or USB hub to the Kenwood's USB input and select music from up to five memory cards or USB flash drives.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, program the adapter for your car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    I've always liked Kenwood products and trusted that my past experiences could be relied upon. I was correct.....sort of.

    Pros: Affordable, easy to install, easy to set up eq, balance, fade, etc.

    Cons: The Blue Tooth is a pain in the butt. It doesn't reconnect even though it's programmed to reconnect automatically. The Blue Tooth doesn't recognize the audio source very quickly at all.

    Pros: Easy setup. Sounds good.

    Cons: When you accidentally activate the settings menu and can't remember which button to put it back to volume/station control.

    I bought this with the dash kit and wiring harness for my 2004 Toyota Corolla and I had it installed within an hour and a half. Following the included (Crutchfield) instructions along with the assistance of a YouTube video made install fairly easy. I'm very pleased with the sound quality this receiver offers. Definitely can hear a difference from the stock radio. I previously upgraded the rear speakers (6x9) in this Corolla so I'm sure that helped improve the overall sound quality too. I'm now considering upgrading my front door speakers.

    I had a similar Kenwood receiver in my previous car and the audio menus were extremely complicated and not user friendly. I'm glad that has been improved in this newer model. Crutchfield tech support also was super fast and helpful with helping me get the rear speakers to work in Bluetooth mode.

    Pros: Very easy to operate. I didn't even have to look in the owner's manual.

    Cons: None so far. It's only been installed for a few hours.

    Awesome, especially for the price

    I'm very happy with this deck. Just changing this out from the original stereo made a huge difference in the sound and loudness of the system. The wiring harness made the install VERY simple and I was able to have this installed in my car in under an hour. Back 25 years ago or so it would take me almost all day to install a system. The Bluetooth and USB jack are great to sync with your phone and play your own music. I did have to call tech support as I was having issues with some radio stations. They were very quick to figure out the problem, even before I finished the explanation.

    Pros: Great price and value. Good power range to drive speakers properly. Tech Support.

    Cons: None

    Pros: Great sound quality. The kenwood head unit fits nicely in dash. Instructions were clear and easy to follow.

    Cons: The metra dash kit didn't fit exactly how it should. The screws that were sent didn't have a purpose.

    Pros: ease of installation, clarity of sound and value. Plus you know you can call on their tech team for help, no strings.

    Basic features and not overly complicated, no color options for the display and the scroll function is not good. The sound quality is better than the one she had but that unit was 12 years old. I know Kenwood has better units for a few dollars more. Granted it was not expensive (and supposedly that was a markdown) thought I'd be getting better quality than I got.....

    Pros: all said in my review

    This thing is great, and was pretty easy to install too, after watching a couple of youtube videos and learning to solder. Crutchfield made it pretty easy by having links to whatever other accessories I needed.

    The one downside is that it's pretty difficult to read the display in the bright sunlight. You can shield it with your hand & read it though, but it's a bit cumbersome. Otherwise it's a great unit. Sounds great, iphone ipod integration seems good, and it works w/ internet radio apps, including tune-in.

    Recomend.

    Pros: Sound, color, usb, hd radio, app integration, works with tune-in / pandora / spotify, iphone integration

    Cons: can't really read the display in bright sunlight, at night it makes the rest of my dash look cheap & old

    This receiver sounds so much better than the stock unit in my 4runner. It's night and day. For a first time installer, it was also really easy to put in. The Bluetooth is awesome. It synced right up and couldn't be easier to use. When it's plugged in via USB, the controls aren't as intuitive. The BT phone controls are also taking some time to get used to. It's like going from a Mac to a PC. It works great once you figure out all the steps, but it's not as simple. My major gripe is that the buttons are super bright and don't dim like the display screen does. It's distracting for night driving. Hopefully I'll get used to it.

    Pros: Value, sound, Bluetooth, easy to install

    Cons: Really bright buttons, controls aren't intuitive

    I wanted to bring my 2006 Outback into the 21st century with a bluetooth and iphone enabled stereo. This Kenwood did not disappoint. I saved a bunch of money buying through Crutchfield and installing myself, including some great help over the phone when I got stuck. The menus are less intuitive than I'd hope but you'll get the hang of it. So far the sound is excellent.

    Cons: menus, colors

    I thought this was a very good mid level CD player. It exceeded my expectations and looks very good installed in my truck

    Pros: Does everything it said it would do and integrated nicely with my stock truck functions like steering wheel controls.

    Cons: It's a little difficult to figure out the settings at first but once you get the hand of it it's not so bad

    Bought this unit as a birthday present for my 18-year-old son, for a 2005 Toyota Corolla. Install went very smoothly, we did it together and took about 1 hour total. A couple of tips: (1) need a 1' antenna coupler (not originally included with order) to keep the antenna lead from pulling out of the back of the stereo, and (2) make sure to run the cord for the microphone prior to re-installing the trim. We originally forgot, and had to remove the trim (just took a couple of minutes).

    Pros: Easy, straightforward install (great instructions). Lots of features at an affordable price.

    Cons: During initial install, the antenna lead from the car disconnected from the back of the new stereo. Turns out the lead is way too short. Had to go out and buy a 1' antenna coupler, works great now.

    I bought this for a new radio in a 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. It fit great and works awesome. It has a ton of features. I love the Bluetooth and built in hands free calling. You can listen to Pandora or IHeart Radio that way too. Or hook your phone up using a USB cable and listen to them or listen to the music on your phone or iPod.

    Pros: Lots of features and quality for a very reasonable price.

    I have used Kenwood receivers for about 17 years. The quality is 2nd to none. I got this for my daughters car. Took about 25 min total to install. Love the fact I can get a stereo with Bluetooth and USB port for as inexpensively as I did. That's insane! Ultra quick shipping for free didn't hurt either.

    Pros: Bluetooth. USB port. Ease of use.

    Cons: None I can think of.

    This is by far, the Best head unit I have ever bought from Crutchfield! Installed this unit in wife's Escort, she likes to use a USB to listen to her style of music. What got me is the tuner. I'm picking up stations that are at least 50-75 miles away and they come in clear! Very easy to set up, clock, tone, etc. Like the display(time), very easy to see in the daylight. The only thing I don't like is you can't change the display color. I just bought a Kenwood three months ago, thinking of buying another one of these to replace what's in my Avalanche. You cannot go wrong with this unit. It is definitely worth the money and time to install. You will not be sorry. Period!

    Pros: display easy to read in daylight

    Cons: can't change the display color

    I was looking for a head unit to use in my work service van that only came with AM/FM radio. Has just about any feature you'd want. Fit and works just right. It's amazing how fast it picked up my tunes I put on a USB thumb drive and iPhone, not tried plugging in my Android yet buy I suspect it will be just a quick. Not really tried iHeart or Pandora yet either. One serious problem I have with it. When I connect my iPad via Bluetooth and play videos, the audio starts out fine for a few seconds then in no time the audio is dragging behind the video so it is so far out of sync it's impossible to watch anything. If there is a delay with playing songs via Bluetooth you should not notice it. This is one feature I really wanted to use hence the 3 Stars, otherwise I would have given it 5 Stars. If that is not something that you will worry about, enjoy it! I still have a Jabra Cruiser that syncs just fine and I can have it transmit to an FM frequency, I just hate going about it in a round-about-way when the Bluetooth should just work on it. Kenwood, that is a major fail for me. Other than that it seems to be a fine stereo.

    Pros: Easy Setup Easy controls Great sound quality Fast pulling songs from USB and iPhone/iPad/iPod

    Cons: Bluetooth has a delay making it unusable for playing videos from iPad.

    You get almost everything with this unit you could want. It was not very easy to install in my 2005 Civic but its because of the car not the receiver or instructions. They were on the money. But it was done in a few hours. I love the Bluetooth with mic. Very cool.

    Pros: All the cool features.

    I looked at dozens of decks on Crutchfield for around $100 and I'm glad I picked this one. The bluetooth feature is great and easy to set up on my HTC One smartphone. Had a friend install it for me but after watching him do it I realized that it would of been easy for me to do. It only took about 20 minutes. Has a nice look and I appreciate the auxilary jack and usb port to hook all my devices up. Great Product as always with Kenwood.

    Pros: Bluetooth Great Value Functionality

    Cons: Depending on your car the harness that comes with it might look different than what the original one looked like

    A ton of features for the price, and everything works as designed. I didn't like the small buttons. Would have liked more dials to control sound quality (EQ), w/o having to dig into layers of menus. I think they put the microphone plug on the wrong side (back) -- should have put it on the front. Since it's on the back, you have to snake it through the back of the dash and find a place to mount it on the front of the dash. I would have preferred a small mike I could plug into the front as needed.

    The "master sheet" that explains how to install in my car (2003 Toyota Matrix) was a little skimpy on the details, I thought. They should make the website so that customers can upload their tips and photos. The whole kit included a set of bolts that I didn't need, but initially left me wondering what they're for. The wiring harness had extra wires that I didn't need -- again, left me wondering if I was leaving something out that I should connect. The plastic frame Crutchfield included had one hole that was a little too small for a screw, and lots of extra tabs that I had to break off. Maybe that's all obvious but it does slow down the installation as you wonder whether you're screwing up. When connecting wiring harnesses, it would've been nice if Crutchfield had included a bit of electrical tape or screw-on caps.

    Pros: Ton of features, especially bluetooth connection to phone. Great price. Decent sound.

    Cons: Audio quality controls are buried in layers of menu. Weird place for a microphone jack.

    Nice affordable unit

    Seems to be a good unit, I installed it in my daughter's '05 Toyota, whose factory radio was giving up the ghost. She needed a bluetooth for her iPhone both for audio and hands free. It has filled the bill, although the audio bluetooth connection can be a bit glitchy. CD functions well, FM receiver seems good. Overall for the price and ease of installation, I'd recommend this unit. Crutchfield, provided the replacement dash plate and wiring harness, installation instructions were almost spot on.

    Pros: Good sound & functions

    Cons: Bluetooth audio connection can go a bit glitchy.

    I bought this unit about a week ago for my work car. I was not about to spend a lot of money on a stereo for this car and for the price it is winner. The unit was a very simple install. I usually just head to another retailer and pick up a pioneer and then complain about the sound. Then I thought about Crutchfield and that they sell Kenwood. I got online and found this unit on sale. Years ago when the whole car stereo upgrade craze started I had used Kenwood and loved it. Well some things never change.This unit has plenty of power and a good sound. The only thing about it that I am not so happy about is on some of my media files it sounds a little DIGITAL and the way you get from one place to another can be a pain. Oh I do want to mention the bluetooth..WOW!!! Less than 100.00 and bluetooth that not only works but actually works GREAT!!!Like I said though, for the price it can not be beat.

    Pros: Sound, and blue tooth

    Cons: On some media it sounds a little DIGITAL..

    My wife had asked for a new radio for her Suburban for Christmas. So I came straight to Crutchfield and started looking. My recent experience with Pioneer and Sony has not been good, so I went to better brands. I ended up with this Kenwood. The radio itself is a great unit. Fairly simple to operate. The Bluetooth features work extremely well with her Android phone and my Windows phone. Overall I couldn't ask for a better radio or more features for the price. Now I just have to replace her speakers....

    Pros: Great Unit. Great Price. Easy to Operate. Nuff said.

    I installed this unit in my mom's SUV ahead of a cell phone (hands free OK) driving ban in Austin, Texas. I usually choose Pioneer decks; but thanks to a bracket in the back of the installation I chose the Kenwood to avoid cutting it out. Mom is happy with my choice. Well, I'm not. After swapping conversations with my wife for over two years on Pioneer decks and connected microphones the Kenwood makes my mom sound like she is in a bathroom, in a hole, possibly in a foreign country. Out of seven rides I have to outfit with hands free controls; this is the one I'm not happy with.

    Pros: Install good

    Cons: tinny aspect listening to call quality when the user calls you.

    Decent features and not overly complicated, but lacks some basic functionality I would have expected for this price point. First: no color options for the display and no way to change the brightness of the blue buttons. At night, the blue is way too bright and very distracting. The sound quality is mediocre and the buttons feel cheap. There were plenty of offerings from Kenwood that were cheaper than this. I thought by baying a bit more I'd be getting something of a bit higher quality, but I guess not. If you need a cheap'ish radio with bluetooth and you aren't picky about cosmetics, you might try this, but I'm betting there are better things out there for this price.

    First off, I'm overall quite pleased with the radio. The sound quality is decent, the Bluetooth connection with my phone seems to be quite reliable (see below for a caveat), and everything works as advertised.

    My only real complaint is the way you select an audio source. On other car radios I've used, there was a row of buttons to select from. On this one, you need to press the "source" key repeatedly to get to the source you're looking for. On occasion, that means I need to click through Standby, Aux, Tuner, USB, Pandora, and iHeartRadio to get where I want to go. Not a big deal, but it's a nuisance.

    The caveat to Bluetooth being reliable may very well be an issue with my phone. On occasion, when I get in the car, the phone won't connect. In order to make it work, I need to turn off bluetooth entirely on my phone, then turn it on and manually connect. It's only done it a couple of times, though, and I think my phone has done that once or twice with a Bluetooth headset, so...

    Overall, not a bad radio for the price. I don't regret buying it, even with the odd quirks.

    Works as advertised. Install was relatively easy, though it came without installation instructions. On my BMW Z3, it wasn't obvious the blue P-CONT wire had to go to the car's amp, but once I established that it worked great. I even had to pull it back out a few weeks later to correct an alarm issue with the car, and getting it back out to make adjustments was easy.

    Bluetooth automatically connects within about 15-20 seconds, usually, when the phone is in the car. I'm not big on Pandora or iHeartRadio, but they also work seamlessly.

    Good product, good price -- if Crutchfield says it fits your car and you're good with the blue display on the face, go for it!

    Pros: Easy bluetooth connection; quick install even for a novice; the included microphone connection makes calls a lot more clear, even in a convertible (so long as you find a good place to mount it).

    Cons: It may actually have too many functions and features.

    Very good stereo. Bought it for my daily driver to replace the stock unit. The sound is definitely better than the stock. Controls and menu systems seems easy to figure out. BT audio and phone calls are really good, probably better than the BT35-HONDA unit I installed on my other cars. I'm definitely happy with this purchase. It was cheap and very easy to install.

    Pros: Sounds, installation, BT audio/phone, easy access aux/USB, and price. It's also great that Cructhfield included everything for the install.

    Cons: Not really much. I still haven't found any cons yet on the unit itself. The only con I found are the instructions that were included to install it in my particular car. It wasn't really clear or complete on how to take off the old unit so I had to go on the car forums to get more info. Not really a big deal though.

    Installed in a 1996 Ford F-250 SuperCab pickup truck. I just replaced the OEM AM/FM/Cassette unit with this Kenwood. I did not replace the OEM speakers and was pleasantly surprised at how much better they sounded after installing the Kenwood. It took me about 3.5 hours to do the install but I took my time to do it right. The supplied wire harnesses made the job easy with the supplied instructions. The toughest part was running the Bluetooth mic up the roof pillar and under the dash to the driver side sun visor where I mounted it. Still learning all the ins and outs of this Kenwood unit, but I am pleased at the instructions and the ease of the installation. Thanks, Crutchfield.

    Pros: Good sound, nice features, Bluetooth audio & phone.

    Cons: None.

    Excellent feature set for a great price - easy to use except for small buttons but everything today has small buttons!

    Pros: major improvement over the factory radio - better sound, more useful features - phone interface & Bluetooth work perfectly.

    Cons: took a while to install

    Great stereo
