modern touch on a RX7.

Written By Christopher, Lynnwood, Wa on Monday, April 06, 2015

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Good little antanna, picks up signal well. Gives a modern looking to my older car, easy to install if you got any fabrication skills.

Pros: Good signal, reasonable priced

Cons: Little over kill on the packaging, got a very large box with tones of peanuts for such a small item.

Classic that never gets old!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Looks great and up to date and works even better than it looks. Super easy to install for the 16V Look on my MK2 Jetta GL

Pros: Looks and works great...

Cons: None to mention.

Jetta roof mount antenna with amplifier

Written By Inthewoods, Maine on Wednesday, September 24, 2014

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Antenna works great. Unfortunately could not buy the antenna without buying the amplifier (which I did not need). However, great service again from Crutchfield.

Pros: Antenna works well. Able to hear stations that I have been unable to listen to for a long time. Helped immensely on a recent trip to the midwest.

Cons: Had to buy the amplifier in order to purchase the antenna
