Great Extender, Easy Install

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Used this when installing a new marine unit in my Jeep Wrangler. Turned out to not really need the extra length but it made installation extra easy to work with. Simple plug-n-play style with one end receiving the regular antenna cable and the other end going into your head unit.

Pros: -Easy Install -No signal loss -Good length

Cons: None

Pros: Great length

Cons: Nothing bad about it

Extension cable

Written By eROCK, Chicago, IL on Friday, May 09, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

This is a METRA antenna cable with Motorola connectors (female to male). I always assumed these cables were some sort of adapter cable (converting one size connector to another size), but that's not it at all. All this does is extend the factory cable to make it easier to install a new stereo. The connectors are the exact same size as your factory cable. This just makes the length of the cable longer.

Pros: Allows for more room to slide the radio out to check wiring, etc, without having to disconnect the antenna.

Cons: More cable means more to get cramped behind your stereo.

Written By KevinW, San Diego on Sunday, April 21, 2013

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works as it should; it's an extension for the antenna cable, and guess what!! It extends the antenna cable!!!

For those of you with Jeep Wrangler TJ's, there's another antenna connection behind the glove box. During the install, make sure this connection is still tight. After my install, I had no radio reception. I figured out quickly, that this connection had pulled apart.

Pros: length

Cons: n/a

This cable wasn't necessary for my Jeep Wrangler. I have an '01 and the factory one fit just fine. The only reason to really use it is to allow for more extension. I used it, but didn't have too.

Pros: Nice quality.

Cons: Not actually necessary, could have saved money by not ordering it. For my make/model, at least.
