My second one, works great.
2000 Subaru Impreza RS
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
Easy to install, and product works as advertised. I tested it two ways, one with the antenna jack connected but the 12V+ wire disconnected and then with both the antenna and the 12V+ connected. The antenna definitely needs power to function properly. Signal seemed good. I had one of these I bought about 10 years ago, but let it go when I sold that car. It worked good all those years but eventually I noticed the red LED indicating 12V+ hookup would no longer illuminate. I was still getting reception so I think that the indicator LED may have burned out in that model even though the antenna still functioned. Hoping to get similar lifespan out of this new one.
Pros: Works as advertised, good for eliminating or shaving the factory antenna.
Cons: Feels a little bit cheaply constructed.
