Ugly, clunky, and too dang expensive
Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I bought this to go with the Helix DSP and it's required to have an external volume control if you're using optical in. It looked ugly in the picture but I had no idea how ugly it would be when I actually got it. Turns out you can make your own easily. This is an expensive unit that consists of two knobs and a button switch. Anyone could make their own and had I known, I would have saved my money. You MUST have something like this with your Helix DSP but it doesn't have to be this overly priced thing. I'll likely end up hacking it apart and mounting the knobs and switch in my dash. It is too much plastic for too much $$$. Save yourself the money; Google how to make your own Helix DSP remote.
Pros: Enables control of volume when using optical in Convenient to have volume and sub volume in one remote
Cons: Too large Too expensive Feels cheap Knobs are too big LED is too bright
