Surprised....It Really Works
1998 Ford Ranger
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Bought a new JVC HD head unit from Crutchfield....the CD/USB fine, but the radio was useless - a screetching and wailing mess from interference. I ordered this filter but frankly had low expectations. It should not have. Of course, incredibly easy to install, it eliminated all the screetching and wailing (which I think was caused by the very high sensitivity of the JVC's HD tuner), and the radio is now fully usable. I haven't tried it on a long drive yet to see if it has significantly reduced the tuner's sensitivity. For $10, it is a no-brainer. (And yeah I know the production cost is about $1.25....) I wonder if this problem is more common on HD radios.....if so, Crutchfield should suggest buying this with any HD unit.
Pros: Easy to install, actually works as advertised....could not be easier.
Cons: yet to see if it has significantly reduced the tuner's sensitivity, hopefully not.
