July 21, 2013 Bluetooth Connection Failed

Bought two for my two vehicles. First one had in for warranty repair due to Bluetooth audio connection dropping. Unit "repaired", but after two months Bluetooth totally failed. Back to the shop tomorrow. Second unit in my wife's van just started to drop Bluetooth audit connection. It will go in for warranty repair next week. Also read on Internet of others who have had Bluetooth issues. Looks like Kenwood has a problem with this unit. Just my luck. Other than the Bluetooth issues (which is why I bought a car stereo with Bluetooth) the unit sounds great. Beware of this model.

Normal install. Nothing complex. Went into a 96 maxima. The beauty ring would not fit, but who cares. Sonic included a dash kit which was nice. Its pushing pioneer 6.5 and 6x9 coax, the more expensive ones from sonic too. Sounds great. Lots of eq modes and custom one too. BT was a bit tricky to set up but got it after 10 minutes. The BT does try to sync with the car off and the phone is 20 feet away. Not sure why. Also the power antenna goes up anytime the car starts regardless of radio being on. Prolly miswired something. No problems with the BT mic.

November 28, 2012 Great Headunit!

I bought this headunit about 8 months ago and it is amazing! I have it hooked up to a 4 channel amp and a mono block amp, and it has such clarity in the speakers. The only downfall about it is that the bluetooth mic doesn't have perfect clarity, but other than the bluetooth mic i have no complaints! Love it, has tons of options to tune your music just how you want!

August 21, 2012 Awesome Deck! My first Kenwood and I love it

I just got this unit a couple of days ago and its awesome. Everything works as described but I'm still trying to figure out somethings with pandora and bluetooth. I guess I should've read the manual first but anyway. The delivery was fast and on time. I had to return a unit and sonic refunded me and shipped my new unit out quickly. I've been telling all my friends about this website and I will continue to shop here. Overall the unit is great and worth every penny. Now I'm looking for subs and an amp. If you're looking for and good unit for a decent price then this is the unit for you.

I have been using and installing Kenwood Excelon for many years now and have been thoroughly impressed. I have been selling them at MSRP via retail locations, and explaining the value of the "bang for the buck" that customers receive it's hard to keep them in stock! Now that I find them at these prices it's a "no brainer" of what head unit to buy! All the features one could want and/or need for complete system control, USB, Aux in, on board crossovers, sub control, etc, etc, etc. Bottom line is great deck, great features, great price!
