Summary: This is my second purchase of an excelon and I love it. Love all the setting so I can fine tune it, not preset EQ. Bought as a gift but did the install myself. I will definitely by Kenwood excelon again.
Summary: I purchased an x397 for my truck. I went with the Kenwood because I had such a good experience with an older Kenwood U248U. I went with the low end of the Excelon line because it was on sale at the same price as the non-Excelon, and because my installer said it was good, worked well with the iphone, was very durable. Good points: - Big honkin' volume knob: this knob is undercut around the edge so its easy to get a good grip on it.
