About the Kenwood Excelon DPX593BT

My, what a large display it has

When I worked on the phones here at Crutchfield, many of my customers didn't necessarily want a car stereo with a touchscreen display, but they absolutely wanted a display they could read without squinting. The Kenwood Excelon DPX593BT CD receiver delivers exactly that, along with Bluetooth® for multiple phones and lots of ways to get your music going. And Kenwood backs up this stereo with a 2-year warranty.

My, what a large display it has

When I worked on the phones here at Crutchfield, many of my customers didn't necessarily want a car stereo with a touchscreen display, but they absolutely wanted a display they could read without squinting. The Kenwood Excelon DPX593BT CD receiver delivers exactly that, along with Bluetooth® for multiple phones and lots of ways to get your music going. And Kenwood backs up this stereo with a 2-year warranty.

Better to see what's playing

This stereo fits in most vehicles with 4" tall dash openings, and its variable-color illumination lets you pick the look you want in your dash. The big 3-line display shows off the song and artist information. And this Kenwood's simply control layout lets you get to your sources, calls, and tone controls quickly. 

More versatility with Bluetooth

Since yours is probably not the only phone used in your vehicle, the DPX593BT enables you to pair two Bluetooth-equipped phones and quickly switch between them for hands-free calling. And when you're streaming audio, Kenwood's Music Mix feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can pick their tunes for the ultimate road trip playlist. You can also control this stereo directly from your iPhone® or Android™ phone using Kenwood's free Remote app. 

Get to your smartphone's music

You can play music from an iPhone or Android that is plugged into the receiver's front-panel USB port. You can also enjoy your favorite Pandora®, Spotify®, and iHeartRadio® Internet Radio stations from your iPhone using the USB connection or with your Android using Bluetooth.

More ways to listen

You can satisfy your music craving by using the receiver's sensitive AM/FM tuner, playing a CD, or sliding in a USB drive loaded with your favorite music files, including high-resolution FLAC files. If you're tired of hearing static, you should add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood and check out the huge variety of programming offered by satellite radio. Nothing makes a trip go faster than finding a great satellite radio station, then listening to it for the duration of your trek.

Set the tone

Once you've got your music selected, you can use this Kenwood's 13-band equalizer and digital time alignment to zero in on that sweet sound you want. Kenwood included three sets of hot 5-volt preamp outputs for ultra-clean sound to go to additional amps or a powered subwoofer.

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

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

Thumbs up for the Kenwood DPX593BT

Crutchfield customer from Cape Coral, FL on 9/1/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This receiver replaces the OEM unit in my 2011 Dodge Dakota. The installation went well. The use of the Ready harness service was worth the cost in time saved. The instuctions were accurate but could have been a bit clearer in regards to the trim parts. I did have to modify the OEM trim at the top edge to remove a ridge that followed the contoour of the OEM unit that is not present on the Kenwood (this inhibited the trim from seating properly in the dash).I also notched the top left corner of the OEM trim to feed the microphone lead up to the mounting location as in photos. As indicated in the Crutchfield website, the dash required cutting to two tabs and bending two others to mount the receiver.I am very happy with the sound and power of the DPX593BT. The controls require some time to become used to but are not difficult. The Blue tooth feature works well, I am told the sound when using it for the phone is clear.

Pros: Blue Tooth, sound quality

Cons: Learning the controls (minor factor)

2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Love this unit! Sound is great and it was easy to install paid for Crutchfield to already have the wires put together and that was great. Only reason I am not giving this 5 stars is because for some reason, the unit will not keep correct time. I put in the time to match my phone and it stays correct for a little bit then I look down and it is 7 minutes behind. Not sure why. I have reset it 3 times and it always changes. Oh well.

Pros: Look, sound, ease of installation

Cons: Time doesn't stay correct

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall I am extremely satisfied. The Kenwood Excelon DPX593BT has all the features I was looking for...bluetooth, spotify, sleek design that looked more factory and not so aftermarket teenager tacky, etc. It was very easy to install thanks to Crutchfield offering the ready wiring for an additional fee. Pay the extra! It is so worth it for being able to just plug it in and be done! The dash kit left a little to be desired as far as instructions but once in it looked flush and matched very well. Overall I am so glad I purchased this especially through Crutchfield!

Pros: Nice look that is less aftermarket tacky, bluetooth works really well, sound is good, easy installation

Cons: Clock changes time incorrectly on it's own until you turn of an auto set feature

Crutchfield customer from Mission Viejo, CA on 8/19/2019

2009 Jeep Wrangler

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

A lot went into the purchase. So, first things first. This was going into a Jeep Wrangler that rides topless 100%. It's also not my daily driver. So I had a few key ideas when buying a head unit: 1) I wanted a significant improvement to audio quality, to better drive the replaced main speakers in the dash and roll bar. 2) Similar to #1, I wanted higher power output so I didn't have to crank it into distortion zone when on the freeway with the top down just to hear it. 3) I didn't want something that looks expensive enough to steal. 4) Integrated Bluetooth-the stock Jeep HU doesn't have it, and I was using an aftermarket BT->FM transmitter which sucked. This fit the bill. It improved sound quality, and improved the power output to the stock amp. I can now turn up the volume to a level where I can hear it without getting into the distortion zone, which happened with the factory HU. And now I have integrated BT. On the negatives, the UI is not great. Too many menus and sub-menus, which are not exactly something you should mess with while driving. I had also hoped the FM reception would be better than the stock HU--I listen to radio primarily and was hoping it would improve. Hence 4* instead of 5*. I do like that it has preamp outputs. The next stage of the build is to replace the terrible factory amp with a better amp, replace the sub, and the tweeters. At that point I'll use the preamp outputs for the best sound quality I can get, and an ap

Pros: Good power output, preamp outputs for future expansion.

Cons: Cumbersome UI.

Great sound easy buttons!

Matthew from Dexter, MI on 8/17/2019

2004 Honda Pilot

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This stereo is awesome. It was easy to hook up using Crutchfield included wiring harness and dash kit. It fit really tight and looks great. This units gloss finish can make it hard to see, but you can easily see the buttons and push them. The volume knob is very responsive and has a nice feel. It controls my subs very well and made the stock speakers sound great using the built in cross over. The blue tooth is seamless, my old touch screen lagged and was not very responsive. This picks up where you left off and connects in about 10 seconds after you start the car. My only complaint is the mountain of styrofoam peanuts it was packed in. Crutchfield, please use a recyclable material. I hate styrofoam its bad for the planet, i just know y'all can do better. That sait it is an excellent packing material the stereo was perfect even the box it was in.

Pros: Buttons! Big ones Great sound and xover Controls the subs! Seamless bluetooth

Cons: Packing peanuts of styrofoam, protected my stereo but at what cost. Think of the dolphins!!!!

Crutchfield response on 8/21/2019
The packing peanuts that Crutchfield uses are 100% biodegradable! Drop one in a bowl of water and watch what happens. They dissolve. They're made up primarily of corn starch, and we make them in our warehouse in big batches, as needed. It's a process we invested in years ago to help protect the environment. About five years ago, we reduced the amount of additional paper we insert in boxes - flyers and stuff like that - because it was so wasteful. Environmental concerns are always on our mind.

DPX593BT Upgrade for Nissan 350Z

Crutchfield customer from Aurora, CO on 8/15/2019

2006 Nissan 350Z

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installed this Kenwood DPX593BT in my '03 Nissan 350Z and it's a significant improvement over the OEM headunit used for over a dozen years. The EasyFit harness made wiring a snap (literally), but the factory mounts could only use two of the four factory bolts per side and I ended up using the upper and lower mounting locations to get it secured in the lower dash. Not anything unexpected for a headunit not originally spec'd for an aftermarket unit. Directions were somewhat general and I've got to say the Kenwood instruction manual is only helpful at best.

Pros: -Excellent sound and clarity from CD section -Attractive color palette in demo mode

Cons: -Not a custom fit, despite fit kit surround -Installation and instruction manuals incomplete

I've had this for about a month now,and I love it. Faceplate lighting matches the factory orange very well. Sounds way better than factory Toyota head unit. Two complaints I do have are it seems to have trouble connecting to spotify but will always connect through bluetooth, the faceplate readout is hard to see in direct sunlight but so was the factory head unit. As far as sound quality it's way better than the factory unit and I'm sure it will sound even better once I replace the factory speakers.

Pros: Looks great, can change color to match factory lighting, sounds awesome

Cons: Doesn't seem to play well with spotify

Michael from Nashua NH on 8/11/2019

2005 Toyota 4Runner

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Installation is easy with the included instructions. however, my 4Runner has TWO antenna leads (front and rear antennae) but only ONE jack on the radio. You will need to buy a two piece splitter set-up to connect both antennae (not included) for about $12

Pros: The radio itself is quite good - only 2 drawbacks

Cons: The volume knob is very shallow and slippery - I had to wrap it with a rubber band to get a decent grip on it. The Kenwood app to control the radio from your android phone is absolutely worthless. It hasn't been updated in 4 years and doesn't work with any modern phone. The last Samsung that is compatible is the S5 - nothing later works. If phone control is important, shop for another brand.

Good sound, buggy software, and strong tuner the falls short...

Skunk from WI on 7/16/2019

2011 Toyota Camry

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The deck worked well but in the end I exchanged it. Thanks to the exceptional customer support of Crutchfield. They sent me a free antenna to test with, because I had constant reception issues. Stations would cut out or fight for priority if frequencies lap'd The deck did not perform well for FM in the location I live. It was a little complicated to setup, but once I got the hang of configuring all the settings it went pretty smooth. You can adjust almost ever aspect of audio, including the difference between sources. Bluetooth worked great, no drops, and the mic was ok. I adjusted the settings but users set I was a little distant. Where this deck finally failed for me was with my iPhone Xr. It would not connect or constantly connect via USB. I updated the firmware and yet I still had issues. When it worked it was great but often I had to fuss a ton to get it to work. Kenwoods app is horrendous!!! Failed to connect, failed to work, and buggy. Felt like Beta software at best. Check App Store reviews. Kenwood said it the deck and app only worked with approved iPhones and the Xr was not on the list. I went this route because for my budget, and wanting a double DIN this one was compatible with the most recent iPhones (through iPhone X) and OS (11.1) versions. Thanks to Crutchfield for taking care of me and getting me swapped out. The replacement deck was a different brand, and also the oldest in the price range, and yet USB and the app is flawless. Siri Eyes Free is great.

Pros: Sound quality Tune-ability Large buttons Bluetooth

Cons: Buggy firmware Overly Complicated Settings - Many setting are not global but source by source Horrid app Poor tuner interference control Sources have to be scrolled through by clicking source button, and one source is standby. Annoying always putting the deck in standby....

Love the radio and it has moved me into the hands free calling world in my older truck. It was simple to install and looks great in my 2004 chevy 2500hd crew cab. There are a few problems i am having. First is the time on the clock, it will not Auto sync and when i adjust it automatically it goes back to 12:00 A.M on Auto Sync mode, so i have had to turn that feature off and just use manual clock. Second is Pandora, Sometime it connects and sometimes i just have to play it using BT Mode. Third is it will not let me sync my contacts or call history to it. Functionality is easy to use. The Issues i am having may be user error,only time will tell. Maybe i just need to use it longer, i have had it for about 2 weeks. I am giving it 4 stars because there is a work around to the things i am having issues with. Would definitely recommend this radio if for nothing else but for the simplicity of it.

Pros: Easy to adjust features, Display is Bright, Hands free calling works great, BT Mode does everything i need it to do on my Iphone XR

Cons: Clock will not Auto Sync, Pandora Not syncing all the time, Contacts and call history will not sync.

I have installed five different Crutchfield receivers in various vehicles the past couple years and this unit has been the best purchase to date. Of course different units are going to sound different according to the vehicle it is being used in, but for my 2009 RX350 this Kenwood sounds great with the old standard factory speakers. The Bluetooth paired up easily with my iPhone and phone calls have been loud and clear. Went with the pre-wiring option again (second time) and it is well worth it. The Crutchfield pre-wiring and the design of the RX350 made this install SUPER easy. I've spent hours before but this install was literally 15 minutes. I'd buy this Kenwood again and would recommend it to friends and family. Blends well with cars that don't have other touch screen controls.

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Got this unit yesterday and installed it today. I did not use the Metra dash kit. Instead I used a dash kit I got thru eBay to keep the radio on the same spot as the factory radio. The Metra dash kit would have covered up the storage compartment next to the radio. The eBay kit worked just fine. It came with a frame which mounted on the radio which allowed me to fasten the radio the factory radio bracket. I gave the review 4 stars instead of 5 bc of the Metra kit taking up too much space and also bc the radio is not as intuitive as I want it to be. I really would have preferred an Alpine but the sound of this Kenwood is not bad. I'll just have to read the manual carefully to learn the radio.

Pros: Fits well, good sound, good install instructions, good support from Crutchfield.

Cons: Not easy to operate, Metra kit takes up too much space

Nice receiver I bought because of the 50 off 2 sets of speakers that sounded worse than the factory ones I ended up returning them KFC-1666S. I would have went with a Sony WX-920BT if I had to do it all over. The Kenwood APP does not work and Bluetooth has a mind of its own if you have two phones on at the same time. Would not recommend... Crutchfield sent the wiring harness and dash kit that was not needed I thought they were the experts but why would they waste their money on sending parts that were not needed? I used the mount off the factory receiver included trim ring looks great. The tech support was extremely nice.

Pros: Great sound and FM reception

Cons: App does not work Kenwood stated they are supposedly working on it. Just do Bluetooth audio streaming the pandora app works but it takes over and automatically reconnects

A great modern deck with everything you need to listen to your music whether you want blue tooth connectivity (up to 5 devices at once) USB, Aux or old fashioned better sounding CDs...you have every way you need to listen to your music in whatever form. The fully customizable color LCD screen is cool and adds personal flavor to your ride. My kid loves to choose the color for that day. Not too fancy and no unnecessary bells and whistles. Easy to install with the provided kit, and help yourself out, save time and wiring tediousness, and pay the $$ to get the Crutchfield pre-made harness to plug right into your vehicles wiring harness. Sooooooo easy it's worth it.

Pros: Can play just about every type of modern music media from CDs to blue-tooth. Customize LCD color scheme. All the colors of the rainbow!

Good sound, not so good in other areas

Laken from Columbia, SC on 1/13/2019

2004 Nissan Xterra

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall, I would have no qualms about reccomending this head unit, albeit with a couple of caveats. Considering the relatively low cost of the unit, I was impressed by how good it sounds with the otherwise stock system in my truck. However, in order to make it sound as well as it does, I had to experiment with a lot of unconventional settings and software in the unit. That process was tedious, time consuming, and not well-explained in the owners manual. I expect most peope with less technical experience would find it daunting and troublesome. There was an issue with the wiring harness too - apparently the labels on two of the wires were apllied incorrectly, though a Crutchfield tech was able to solve that issue for me in very short order. Also, the plastic face plate just looks and feels cheaper than some other head units I've used in the past. The included trim pieces would not work wth my '04 Xterra, and I had to modify the Metra installation kit in order to make it work.

Pros: Good sound, 3-line text display is nice, good value.

Cons: Face plate looks and feels cheap, error in wire labels, complicated and annoying software "features" that are necessary to get the most out of the unit, manual was of limited use in setting up those features.

Tons of Features and Great Audio Setup Menu

Brian from Medway, MA on 1/11/2019

2005 Mazda Tribute

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Great priced radio with tons of features. The sound is clean out of the box you can also customize it to you vehicle and speaker configuration to get the best sound for your particular vehicle. Paired easily to my iPhone; love the Bluetooth playback and hands free calling I now have. My order included an aftermarket radio bracket and trim plate for my 2005 Mazda Tribute but the bracket and trim plate that came with the radio were actually of a better quality and worked with the double DDIN hole left by the factory installed radio. I just had to glue a 1/4" piece of plywood onto the factory radio's slide rail to support the back of the radio. With the new radio in I'm probably going to loose the SUV to the rest of the family now that they can play their music from their phones.

Pros: Easy to install Can add and subtract music sources to meet your needs. The audio setup menu lets you choose your speaker sizes and locations to customize the sound for your particular vehicle. You can customize the color of the screen to match or compliment your vehicle's dash colors.

Cons: With so many features it can take a while to figure the radio out. My family now wants to steal my SUV to listen to their music on the radio.

Awesome sound. with the same speakers my factory radio sounded like crap. i put in this radio expecting that i would upgrade the speakers later. No need with this radio the speakers sound great.This thing has a lot of options so it is well worth it to read the whole owners manual. I love the fact that it comes with an external Mic for Bluetooth calls. the Mic did not sound good on calls when we plugged it in, it sounded like you were 10 feet from the mic. But after reading the manual and realizing that you can adjust the levels of the Mic also, it is crystal clear

Pros: sound quality, many options to fine tune the sound

Cons: can take a minute for the Bluetooth to sync

Love the features --- ease of use ---- kinda wish the big knob for volume wasn't the control for everything --- have to pay attention when adjusting volume. Sounds great --- install was a little difficult --- had to mutilate the inside of my dash with my Dremel to make it fit ----- good thing was the instructions was very through on this bigggg help. Every thing was plug and play, the premade harness I ordered made it idiot proof as well.

Pros: ease of install

Cons: the knob controls way to many things - also once its installed with the plastic wedge thingys on the side, its there for life.

Incredibly Nice Unit

Jake from New Brighton, MN on 11/11/2018

2006 Mazda Tribute

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First and foremost, the staff at Crutchfield is amazing!! Now, this Kenwood unit is amazing, especially at the price I paid!! The item was shipped/received quickly and so incredibly easy to install. I ordered the the wiring harness too, so when it came to installation, it was all plug-n-play! (The hardest part was removing the stock unit.) Did I mention that they include the removal pins too, as no additional charge!?? So, the unit is much more powerful than I expected, with clear, crisp sound quality. The multitude of settings are mostly self-explanatory, but I'm going to have to look into the manual to get everything sorted out. Overall, the EQ, Fader, Balance, Clock, Bass Boost, Source, et al., is very straight forward. I'm currently enjoying the blue-tooth setting as well, syncing this unit to my phone; whenever I start the car, it connects to my phone and automatically starts my Spotify app!! (It also has the USB port and Aux input, if needed.) The display is big and bold, and it's easily readable during the brightest of sunny days. With the included installation kit, it just fits in my dash, and looks like it came from the factory. So far, I have zero complaints about this item. (Oh yeah, and it's got a CD player, for some of those awesome mix CDs you've made!!!) I'll probably add new speakers to this set-up in the Spring, but right now, I'm enjoying this excellent Kenwood set-up!!

Pros: Too many to list - read the review above

Cons: Zero!!

Stuck With an Unsatisfactory Product

2004 Infiniti I35

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The basic deck itself is very nice, installed easily and performs as described ALMOST. It is no fault of Crutchfield but the system is not completely compatible with my Moto G5 plus phone. While I can make and receive calls and have some other functionality, both Bluetooth Audio and USB are unusable with my phone and give a "No Support" message on the deck. When I talked to Kenwood they told me some things to try (none of which helped) and then advised that my phone may not be compatible with their receiver. I then asked them about another phone and got a short note stating that a Bluetooth compatibility list is not available and we cannot guarantee functionality with the phone. If I had known ahead of time that I was not going to have these features available I would have not gotten this deck. If I had known ahead of time that Kenwood couldn't tell me what phones their products were compatible with I wouldn't have gotten a Kenwood.

Pros:

Cons:

TONS OF OPTIONS, more than I need

Patrick from Westfield, MA on 10/4/2018

2000 Toyota 4Runner

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

First of all, I bought this from the "Scratch and Dent" outlet. It came without the original box, but everything else was there, including the protective film still on the deck's face. Unit was brand new, never installed, 100% perfect, for an outstanding price! I bought this to replace a perfectly working three year old Kenwood DPX301BT that I decided to throw into another vehicle with some $20 no-name radio. Installation, piece of cake. Three line display is just ok. the first line shows the name of the input and the time, the second line is the RDS, third line is the date. I'm not trying to nit-pick, but I liked the one line on the 301 better. This is an Excelon deck and has a ton of sound-forming options, from speaker size to some really nice preset EQ's. The menu is clunky to navigate in relation to the 301. The settings menu is accessed by pushing the big volume button. On the 301, pressing the volume was "mute", so it is a matter of getting used to the menu and no mute button on the 593. This is not a poor reflection on the deck, it is me needing to unlearn. There is NO remote control, but the remote from the 301 works perfectly. I really like this deck, but in my regular ole 4 speaker Dodge pickup, it isn't better than the Kenwood it replaces. If you don't need a CD player and sound customization options, save some cash and pick up the DPX303MBT.

Pros: Adjustable color display, adjustable color keys, completely customizable soundfields, controls for iheartradio, Pandora, Spotify, can connect two phones with Bluetooth!

Cons: Premium Excelon deck, they could have tossed in a remote

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Radio looks and works great. The Bluetooth connected easily and works well with my phone. Call quality is good, and the music streams well with no problems. The display has tons of different colors that will match virtually any interior lighting. However at certain times of the day the display can be a little hard to read if the sunlight is on it, even at full brightness. Did have some minor things I didn't like but will adjust to. If you're on a call when you get into the vehicle it may start playing music as soon as it connects to the phone. Not a huge deal, I just have to close out my music app and then restart it when the phone call is completed. Wish it had come with a remote, but I'm sure that a more expensive model does come with one. Overall, it looks and works great and I would purchase it again.

Pros: Easy Bluetooth connection and control

Cons: Sometimes will play music while on a phone call, could be phone related.

So I bought this player at a Crutchfield's rep. recommendations. It sounds great, it has many features but I wanted a receiver that I could connect my Samsung S9 to with the USB C cable and control the phone and charge it the same time. It won't work. I called Kenwood who advised me I would have to buy a Kenwood receiver model that ends in the number 5 and has the function, "web-link". These are much more money. I called Crutchfield to confirm and the support tech was very helpful and did research while I was on hold and confirmed, it wouldn't work. I'm very disappointed. I like the receiver so much that I wanted to buy another for my second vehicle, but now I'm not sure.

Pros: Great Sound and Features

Cons: NO Samsung USB control

Cons: Still can't get radio to stay on right time, tried every setting it always goes back to an hour earlier than it should be. Even tried turning click sync off and still won't stay on right time. For crossover you have to know what you're doing...but you can usually find answers on internet together you close.

The BT connectivity of this unit is the worst I have ever used.

Pros: I bought this unit to replace the failed factory unit in my 2005 GMC Sierra. Installation was very simple and the fitment is great in the dash. I had one wiring question and the Crutchfield team had all the answers.

Cons: I don't listen to broadcast or satellite radio and use this unit to stream from my cell phone. The BT connectivity is the worst I have ever had to deal with. I have a less expensive Boss unit in my other car that connects BT effortlessly. After a year or so of use, I am getting ready to replace this unit with something else.

Purchased the product to replace a failing radio in our 2013 Dodge Caravan. Installation instructions were good.The user operation was confusing. There are numerous models in the same manual. Had to determine Which section applied to me.I installed it myself did not have any real problems. The phone and satalite antenna went in smoothly. The hardest part was fishing the phone and antenna wires up through the dash to the radio. The existing trim has to be slightly modified with a reciprocating small hack saw. Lucky I have all the required tools. Installation looks professional radio sounds great.

Great deal

I purchased this unit to replace a factory stereo that was having electronic difficulties. For the price, I am very happy with the radio. I would suggest buying this radio if budget is an issue. If you read the specs of this one compared to some more expensive radios I think you will come to the same sensible conclusion I did, and that this radio meets or exceeds the capabilities of many radios much more expensive then this one. Also, a two year warranty is not offered by other manufactures.

Pros: Easy to install Great sound Looks good Plenty of options Bluetooth 2 phones at one time 2 year warranty

Cons: Might just be the driving position of my car, but in bright sunlight, I have to move my head about a foot in order to read the display. This is why I gave this radio 4 stars. It seems petty, but I did not have to do that with the factory radio.

Best investment I've made in a while

Crutchfield customer from Gaffney, SC on 7/22/2018

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

PROS: The unit arrived quickly and I had it professionally installed. There is a learning curve for all the features, but it is fairly intuitive to get through the menu system. The sound quality through the factory speakers is very much improved and easily adjusted . Im still getting familiar with some of the blue tooth features, but the hands free phone controls will prove useful. I need to plan a road trip and put it through it's paces. The display is attractive and very legible, and the many variations should please anyone. The cd plays Very nicely. My old cd's have a new life! CONS: The manual is long and can be very vague and redundant. Keep it handy! Bluetooth phone pairing was a little dicey, but works well once it's up and running.

Exactly what I wanted. A head unit with good power, crisp sound and high tunability. Double DIN size without the price tag of including a screen. I was able to hook it up easily to steering wheel controls using Crutchfield's Crux wiring as well. Bluetooth is simple to connect to. It's not the most user friendly when it comes to navigating through the menus, but i've used Kenwood products before so it's really not too bad.

As for the product it is a fine radio although if I was to do it over again I really don't think I would have purchased it. For someone like myself I am not savvy enough to figure out the operation of it of which is my fault. The instructions are in my opinion terrible I looked on you tube to find information about the operation's with NO LUCK and what I did find is a couple of guy's that seem to be trying to start a career as stand up comedians, just totally stupid. I really would have thought Kenwood would have put out a complete video guide of some sort but as of now NOTHING. As for the folks at Crutchfield they are great in every way and they have been a lot of help but I can't keep calling a tech for every little thing I can't figure out which is just about everything. I myself feel as though I bought something that is way above me and I will never make this mistake again. OVER ALL THIS HAS BEEN A VERY BAD MISTAKE ON MY PART I HAVE SOMETHING THAT IS OF NO VALUE TO ME!

Pros: I am sure a very good product.

Cons: For me it is way to complicated to use, the instruction manual is very confusing. Their is nothing in the form of a step by step video to view which would be a major help. For me it has been a very bad purchase although it is my mistake.

Great value, solid performance, room to grow

Jacob from PRATTVILLE, AL on 6/8/2018

2005 Pontiac Grand Prix

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Overall, it's a HUGE improvement over the dysfunctional GM factory stereo from my 05 Grand Prix. I'd say it's a solid 4 - star rating. Some things I'd need to feel it's a 5 - star are 1. Mute 2. Dimmer connected to factory dimming or auto lights 3. More substantial knob and buttons (they have a thin, flimsy feel). Considering the price, it's a great value. I have outputs to expand with, great audio adjustments, satisfying visual control, and great sound even through factory speakers.

Pros: Affordable quality, great sound & controls, room for expansion, great visual appeal and customization, easy install

Cons: Flimsy buttons and knob, no mute, dimmer is one level toggle on/ off (with a timer, that's nice) unconnected to factory dimming,

Simple controls, classy look, sounds great. If you don't want to be cleaning the LCD constantly of finger prints, this unit is perfect. Disadvantage is that you can't add a rear camera, but our car doesn't need one for visibility.

Pros: No finger prints on LCD. Simple to use. Multiple colors for display.

Cons: Can't add a camera.

Excellent head unit with all the features you could ever want. The only downfall I didn't like was the settings which were not like every other stereo that allows trebil, bass, mids, etc. Instead this stereo sets in ohms for other variances. I wish they would have just kept it simple with the basic settings that everybody is used to. Other than the settings the stereo is excellent.

Pros: Quality, sound, performance, and capabilities.

Cons: Sound settings

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Hands free and the bluetooth work great. This unit is better than we expected. We upgraded everything. Door speakers, tweeters added a 12 sub and new AMP we are very happy. Easy to install thanks to all the extras thrown in by Crutchfield, made the job a breeze. This is everything we wanted or needed in our Trailblazer. If youre looking for an inexspinsive upgrade to your old factory radio, this is a great no frills head with a great price tag.

Pros: Bluetooh works like a charm with my Droid Turbo 2. A lot of features for the price. Music sounds better than i thought it would over the BT Audio. Add some good speakers, amp, and sub and youll have a great sounding system for under $600

Cons: Playing a burned cd is slow to load songs if you have them in mp3 format. As you skip through songs sometimes the unit reboots. Usually in the 100 song range. May be a better way to sort the songs so im still testing that, but with Sirus and Pandora i doubt ill be playing many cds anyway.

First time with Crutchfield and its been an abysmal showing.. Unit was shipped to me as a freaking DUD. yes DEAD, DOA, WASTE OF TIME, BROKEN.. I spent countless hours troubleshooting a broken unit straight from the dealer.. I also wasted money on many connectors, and now wont have a radio for over a week. Crutchfield cant even ship out my new unit until 2 days from now.. Pure headache from this company.. THEN to make matters worse I thought entering my car info was supposed to get me the correct parts. This clearly was not the case.. not only where the instructions wrong they sent me a Single din Unit for my double din stereo.. I had to get a saw and cut plastic to modify this chineese garbage to make a correct fit.. I have a list of tools neeeded ( supplied by Crutchfield ) for the install and nothing suggests a saw or knife, or modifying plastic.. again WRONG INSTRUCTIONS I tried to ask for some type of good will or discount and they refused.. I honestly dont see the difference from Crutchfield vs other retailers than over inflated prices.. I'll most likely be returning my full order worth over $500 cause this has been an abysmal experience. The local store will do the install for free and wont charge you for supposedly correct parts you gotta hack apart to make a fit.. great way to refuse a return though have all the installs require heavy modifications so the items arent new.. 0/5 stars, they made me choose 1

Pros: haha

Cons: everything

It's a basic no frills stereo for an awesome price point. Sounds great, love the 13 band eq. I thought the face would look cheap but it actually looks great and an upgrade to the look of my car. The RC-405 or RC-406 remotes both work with this stereo so I would buy one of these along with the stereo. The front volume knob is a little hard to grab and slick, so the remote is nice to have in hand.

Is it a good dependable receiver? Don't know yet, it's just too soon to make that call. Does it sound really good? I would say it's an ok head. I would say that it sounds just as good as any of the other typical receivers in this price range. Would I buy it again? If I had it to do over again I'm really not sure about that at this time. But I'm leaning to the word ...... NO ..... I prefer separate bass, mid, and treble controls and this head doesn't have that. Although the head does have a manual EQ, and that function does an adequate job for what it is. It really needs those separate bass/mid/treble controls to clean-up the output. It just sounds like its lacking in true stereo quality sound, or should I say (stereo fidelity). All of these newer receivers in this price range sound like this, to me. But, maybe I need to buy more power ..... LOL!!..., or maybe I need to buy a big subwoofer or two ..... LOL!!.... nahh, And here again, I must say that it does have lot of bells and whistles that the average person probably doesn't need to fool with whilst trying to drive an automobile up and down the highway. Trying to adjust the latest digital LCD millennial wonder at 70 miles an hour is a definite no, no, kids.

Pros: Equalizer

Cons: Too many menus to fool around with while trying to drive a vehicle = DANGEROUS!!!

Great budget stereo with lots of features!

Ron from Bellingham, WA on 2/6/2018

2005 Scion xB

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Had it for a couple weeks, and love it so far! Great budget stereo with lots of features. Purchased to replace a OEM stereo for my Scion XB. Wanted a lower-priced unit with modern features (hands free calling, bluetooth) along with maximum compatibility for different inputs (USB/Bluetooth/Aux in). If you don't want/need a touch screen this is the way to go. The bluetooth auto pairing is great, grab your phone and go, when you get back in your car the audip picks up where you left off. (FYI, This model unit only has 1 Aux in and USB plug on the front, so if you're planning on running more through the console or elsewhere do your research.) The hands free calling works as expected, and the included microphone is average-sounding. The included trim plates (2) give you options, I ended up not needing the aftermarket brackets supplied by Crutchfield to get the unit to line up with my double din dash slot-your mileage may vary.

Pros: *Good price for all the features! *customizable lighting- you can set the display and the instrument backlights separately for a two tone effect or leave it in demo mode and have a disco party every day

Cons: *the iphone app isn't very robust, oerates as a very basic remote control. doesn't let you tweak stereo settings. *the menu tree to get to some of the features is a bit counter-intuitive so read the manual and keep it in a safe place. *Hands free outgoing calls require a couple button pushes, could be distracting while driving.

Feature packed, but disappointing.

Wylie from Enterprise, AL on 11/29/2017

2010 Chevrolet Aveo5

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very functional and feature packed, while lacking many common items. There is no mute button. The cheaper Blaupunkt New Jersey that we installed in another vehicle a couple of years ago allowed hands-free with the built-in microphone. This more expensive Kenwood only allows hands-free with the included external microphone that has to be mounted somewhere in your vehicle. Honestly disappointing. If I had not prematurely thrown away the packaging unneeded installation parts, I would be making arrangements to return it.

Pros: Bluetooth, front access for auxiliary & USB, variable color display, and more.

Cons: No mute button. Hands-free doesn't work without installing external microphone.
