Trying to do too much with one knob...

Brian J from Kansas on 9/9/2015

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

I bought this to install in my CanAm Commander and get tunes from my Garmin Monterra to a JL Audio HX280/4 amp powering a pair of 6.5" speakers. The instructions say to "turn and hold for approx 3 sec" to adjust the volume up or down and "turn for approx 1 sec" to track up or down. Adjusting the volume is tricky if you want to make a small adjustment. Turn and hold the knob, listening for the volume to go up, and once it does, you release. Most of the time I found the volume adjustment to be too much or not enough, and trying to make further small adjustments was just as painful to accomplish. Its almost as if there is small delay between your input on the knob vs the actual volume coming out of the speakers. So you would think you had adjusted the way you wanted, but the volume would keep going up after you had released the knob (and then stop after it was too high). But that wasn't even the most aggravating issue. Half the time I would try to make a small volume adjustment, the volume would change, But So Would The Track. Finally, I had adjusted the input gain on the JL amp so that at max volume I would just be starting to get distortion. On the low side, the volume was off, or one knob turn up from that was far more than just barely audible, meaning listening at low volume wasn't possible. Returning this and trying out the MTX MUDBTRC (which for some reason didn't show up in the "Bluetooth Adapters for Any Car" section, or I probably would have bought it first).

Pros: Small form factor, easy to hook up, paired effortlessly.

Cons: 1) Small/Accurate volume adjustments difficult to make 2) Have hold the knob for 3 seconds just to make a single volume adjustment (and then wait 3 seconds again to make a subsequent adjustment) 3) Small volume adjustments would happen, but the track would sometimes also change at the same time (!!) Extremely frustrating. 4) Step between no volume and first notch on the volume scale is big making low volume listening impossible

I installed this item into a classic car. I wanted to keep my original am radio/speakers so installed a separate amp and speaker outfit. I ran this right into the amp inputs. Works great! Pairs instantly. Very intuitive design as I never read how to actually use it. No range or interference issues

Pros: Easy to install Starts/pairs quickly Intuitive design/controls Interfaces directly with audio system

Cons: None

Great product. I purchased this for my boat. Installation and connection was a breeze. My phone connected to it right away and it operated exactly as I had hoped. Phone stay safe and dry and we listen to music with all of the space for a traditional receiver.

Pros: Easy. Everything about it is easy.

Cons: Needed to add a waterproof cover.

Love It!

Jason from Waterloo, Iowa on 6/16/2014

Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I bought this because I wanted to install an iPad Mini with Retina Display in the dash of my car. I wanted wireless sound and controls so I wouldn't have to take my eyes off the road to look at the touch screen on my iPad Mini. This item allows me to do just that. It sounds great and the controls are perfect for my application.

Pros: Sounds great! Wireless audio plus controls. Built very well. Easy install.

Cons: None so far. Works perfectly.

I just bought a Polaris RZR 800 with this Bluetooth knob but when I press the knob it doesn't make the blue led come on to pair it with my IPhone, any suggestions?

Q
Does this make an audible beep or tone when powering on?Also does this offer stand alone powering on and off, or is it solely ignition controlled?
[ graham  Aug 09, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
There is no audible beep, but there are blue LED lights that turn on to indicate power on the Wet Sounds WW-BT-VC. It would need to be wired directly to a 12V+ source for power though. For more details or to discuss further, please contact an Advisor directly by phone (888.955.6000) or online chat. Thanks!

Q
possible to pair this to a tablet and have the tablet paired to a head unit (simultaneously)?
[ logix7  Jul 06, 2018 ]
1 answer
A
The idea would be to have your Bluetooth source device (tablet) paired with the WW-BT-VC wirelessly via Bluetooth and have the WW-BT-VC connected to an auxiliary audio input on your stereo (head unit) with an audio cable.
[ Ryan  Jul 12, 2018 ]  Staff

On my boat, anywhere more than 20-25 feet it starts to cut out.

connect it to the power wire that feeds your stereo. typically the red wire coming out of the plug on the back of the stereo. ground the other wire to anything that goes to ground. this way the bluetooth will only be on when the stereo is on.
[ kyle  Dec 04, 2014 ]
A
I don't know what car your have but I installed this on my boat and it's pretty easy. You can either get a test light and find a wire that has power after the ignition is turned on or splice into the hot feeding your cigarette lighter. Without knowing your specific vehicle and looking at it will be hard to get a direct answer. Try seeing if there is an Internet forum for your vehicle, usably a wealth of info in those.
[ Larry  Dec 04, 2014 ]
A
I wired it with stereo and car harness power and ground wires but when I turned the key to power accessory only the radio turned not the Bluetooth control , what could I be doing wrong?
[ Josue  Dec 04, 2014 ]
A
Any keyed 12v wire behind your radio would be fine
