nice unit easy to install but output sucks

Reuben from Lincoln, DE on 9/18/2018

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

unit is easy to install but the output of this unit is very bad. it would not even power one single speaker tested on bench. hooked it up to an amp and still sounds terrible. my cell phone played better then this unit.

Pros: install and wiring nice many install options

Cons: output very bad

Crutchfield response on 9/19/2018
- Once we saw this review, our Tech Support guru, AJ, reached out to Reuben to help him further. Although this wired remote has Bluetooth built in, it does require a radio or amplifier to drive the speakers. It doesn't have enough signal to drive speakers directly. Lifetime tech support comes with every Crutchfield purchase.

I love this product that I use on my 07 Harley road King. Easy to use while wearing gloves plus can see the buttons at night cause its backlit

Pros: Use with gloves plus backlit

Cons: Had to use a relay for the remote wire. Amp kept turning off so relay fixed the problem

Wiring Harness: The MXABTSA's wiring harness consists of a Red wire (+12V Switched), Black wire (Ground), and a Blue wire (Remote Out). The Red wire should be connected to a switched +12V circuit, while the Black wire should be connected to -12V or chassis ground.

Q
Does this function as the controls for the aux minijack input as well as the Bluetooth input?
[ dennis  May 03, 2018 ]

A
No. The aux input is just an audio connection so, you'll control playback on the source device connected to the aux input.

Q
Is this device totally bluetooth functionality? One reviewer stated that they need a relay. I do not understand the reasoning. Also, is that an aux input to charge the unit?
