Summary: I am very disatisfied with this radio. K thought it is a good brand. Best shop did every effort to please me and answer my concerns. They replaced it once but I have not reinstalled it yet. It would cut of power and I had to disconnect it to make it work again. Then it showed a 'protect' code and that was the and of it. It would not do nothing just flashing protect. Had to send it back.
Summary: The biggest reason I chose to go with Kenwood is the fact they they are the only company I have found that had the foresight to save the radio presets even when the battery is disconnected, as is usually the case in my boat. This behavipr is present in my trucks and car also (different Kenwood models). It would be really nice if they made it save ALL of the settings even when the battery is disconnected, such as bass and treble levels for radio, USB, CD, etc.
Summary: Sounds amazing. Running Polk Audio DB 6 1/5 components, this head unit has plenty of power. I love the USB conmectivity with pandora control straight from the head unit is awesome. I can switch from the music on my iPhone to pandora with a single button. Great product.
Summary: We put this receiver in our boat. It fit very nicely and works well, we are very happy with it. It's a nice looking receiver with all the options we were looking for, plays CD's, and ipod as well as radio. Seems to be a good product, would recommend it.
Summary: I installed this Kenwood Marine stereo in my boat about 3 weeks ago and am really liking it. All of the wires on the back of the unit were well labelled which helped with installation. It seems to have good power to drive the four 6-1/2" two-way marine speakers I also installed. If you are going to be at high volumes for extended periods you may want to look into a Sub and seperate amp (not a knock on the Kenwood as it does what it is made for).
Summary: I purchased this product through Discounts Jungle. I have installed many vehicle stereos with no issue and after receiving it, I installed it in to my boat. After getting everything wired in, the unit would not power on. I unhooked the unit, checked via multimeter that power was coming appropriately through the harness and that the fuse was not blown, then re-plugged in the unit. The unit would still not power on.
