Antenna or radio replacement?
1995 Honda Civic
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Dealing with poor reception with the Clarion aftermarket radio that came with my used car, I poured over many replacement models. One comment said enough to pique my interest: try replacing the factory antenna, another said try this antenna as it is longer and produced good results. I viewed YouTube videos and decided to buy this replacement for my 21 year old car. It took about 30 minutes to install and I had immediate positive results. More stations were coming in on AM and FM and all were clearer. This is a great step to consider before replacing the radio if reception is not as good as other examples. Mine improved, compared with past performance and other comparison vehicles. Worth the money before radio changeout, which I'm still planning on.
Pros: All parts were sent. Changeout went well after viewing YouTube videos. Definitely use a good strong string to pull out/in!
Cons: Videos were much more user friendly than the installation instructions alone, but together all went well.
