Perfect fit !

I have a boat but I bought this unit for my Harley motorcycle. It fits in a speedometer housing and is mounted over my handlebar riser clamp. For its size, features, waterproof grade and sound quality it was a perfect fit for tunes on the open road!

Looks like crap after 6 months in Marine environment

The Unit looked nice when installed and works OK. It does get VERY hot, even at moderate temps. The bezel started to corrode after 6 months, and now looks like crap. Cheap Potmetal Bezel!

Purchased a little over a year ago and not long after the year warranty went out the unit quit working. JBL is a great brand but this headunit was terrible. Boat was stored indoors and headunit started glitching and then finally went out. Will not purchase another.

Nice fit and finish!

I replaced one of the 3.5" gauges on my wakeboard boat with this unit. Fits perfect. Looks great! Easy to reach and use. No more having to get up and reach in the passenger glove box for changes. USB acces behind dash. Bluetooth works great with my iPhone7. I assume it works with any phone...several friends have used their phones to play music as well. Samsung, iphone, LG...etc... the only thing I wish it had is a sub output. There are two RCA outputs, but would be much better with a third sub output and adjustments. Overall, it's a nice unit. With a little gain adjustment on the amps, everything sounds great! Clear sound. No motor noise.
