Not good Did Not Work

Sal from Mystic Island, NJ, Sonic Electronix
6 March 2012
  • Conclusion: I bought this unit to install an amp into a Kia Forte without replaceing the head unit. This MX-1 was a problem. I set it up exactly how it is supposed to and even whatched the video on how to setup the dials on Hifonics site. The unit would turn on by itself with nothing even connected to it. It was supposed to turn on automatically via the inputs from the speakers but it did not work.

Great!...when it works...

Rich from Garden City, MI, Sonic Electronix
9 August 2011
  • Conclusion: Went through several of these things. First one (purchased at another retailer) died after just using it once. Second one worked great for about a week and then the front balance suddenly started shifting to the right on its own. Third one was DOA. When they work, they are pretty good. It's getting them to work & last that's the trick. Right now I'm using a Scosche SLC-4, some Y-Splitters, a Phoenix Gold TLD22, and the settings on the amps.

Do not Purchase unless you have $ to throw away

  • Conclusion: Absolutely do not recommend wasting your money on this piece of hardware. Like many folks, worked for ½ day & then died. Wish I would have done more research as this unit has some serious manufacturing issues.

Good Features...WON'T BUY AGAIN

Al from Los Lunas, NM, Sonic Electronix
8 May 2011
  • Conclusion: Lots of features. Good control of factory head unit signals. When it works; it works very well. When. It. Works. Blew one fuse after another. Spent hours trying to narrow down the problem. It is NOT worth the hassle. Low Price, Low Quality = CHEAP product. SonicElectronix carriers other products. Buy a cache COE6 or Audiocontrol LC6i...

  • Conclusion: just purchased this product & had it installed in my 2007 acura tl, at first there some noise issues but that's because the installer hadn't done the fine tunning but once that was done the vehicle sounded great and i was pleased.

  • Conclusion: This product works very well. I installed the existing factory sub output wires to the input of the mx-1. Used quality rca's cables to the amp. Grounded all grounds together on a solid chasis lug. Absolutely no engine noise or hiss. Pre-clip indicator on bass control knob... priceless. Great product.
