Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Ease of Use
The 148 cde hd . Was Breeze to install . Hardest part was taking my dash apart the Supplied face plate had a gap around the entire unit 1/4 of inch . .That Impacted nothing on the Unit just had to buy another face plate now it sits flush no gaps ..If you are like us not need amp and there is loads of boom boom thou it has kick might add amp but these 40 something adults see no need for it .Only Glitch my Wife notes is when she pushes volume up on her note 4 bit back ground static .After you lower the volume on the note 4 and re plug it into the auxiliary port things are great once again ..Aside from that Mels a Happy camper that makes my life blessed For the Money you would be a fool to over look it .even if it is rear usb its worth the money great sound quality over the factory radio .Antenna reception bit off but maybe were not use to how hd radio works yet ..A local station less than 8 miles away not picking it up were miffed . thats a wrap and our thought s ..
Pros: great unit loads of power syce nice for us all our device work fine worst mistake if you want to save money and get bang for your money . this would be a excellent unit choice from Alpine
Cons: none other than just got get use to how every thing works rear usb not a hassle to us .Just to new generation that exerting body energy to connect cable to the plug in .Other note any firm ware updates must be done vi a flash drive to the usb
