Bought this for my son because it had the capability to be operated from an iPod, but I did not have the time at first to research amps and speakers. When I finally did get around to getting the amp, speakers and sub and installing them, there was a hum in the speakers which got worse with higher engine RPM's. I worked on diagnosing the issue over several weekends, buying ground loop isolators, etc., to see if that cleared up the problem. I finally found a good troubleshooting guide on the 'net, and worked through the process. A friend had an extra CD player, and when we swapped out the JVC, the hum went away. I just determined that this weekend, and have not had a chance to take it to a JVC authorized repair shop (nothing local). Until we determined what the problem was, my son was ready to live with the problem because he liked the iPod feature, and he was also able to listen to online books from his iPod. Note: the product also the capability to play music from a USB stick. Except for the hum, the product seems to be a good purchase.
