Great Multi-Zone/Source Option!

Crutchfield customer from Ltl Egg Hbr, NJ on 5/11/2021

Nice unit, doesn't seem as impressive in the looks department as compared to most car audio units, but then many marine units don't. It is one of the few units, if not the only one, where you can have multiple zones AND multiple sources for each zone. The install instructions leave much to be desired as far as what you can and can't do with each zone and if all sources are available for each zone. You really need to spend some time familiarizing yourself with the unit prior to install. It turned out the unit did indeed do what I needed which was run one zone off high level outputs for the cabin interior and then low level outputs to amps for the separate exterior audio zone. It's not very intuitive to change zones and sources, and to adjust each zone's volume, but it's not terrible. The large simple buttons make it seem as if it's a bit more simple to make adjustments then it really is. It will take a bit of practice to get the hang of, it's like the equivalent to getting a new cellphone. The unit is nice in its "hideaway" design, this lends itself well to installation in tight areas. The odd face size required me to make an adapter plate to cover up the original DIN opening and cut a different size hole. No one likes to keep cutting holes in their boat for each upgrade so it would be nice if I had options for multiple zones/source unit in the same DIN opening. The unit was inop out of the box but Crutchfield sent me out a new replacement immediately and problem was solved

Pros: Great multi zone and source features, hideaway design, seems to be high quality, cool back lighting.

Cons: Odd size if you're replacing an existing unit, not super intuitive to adjust individual zones, I find myself performing adjustments multiple times to get it right, bulky remote cables, not much installation guidance for a DIY unless you're already familiar with the unit.

This is a very unique system Has his own amplifier or you can run an independent amplifier completely expendable in adjustable fits conveniently anywhere Remember this system is designed for boats so it's perfect for convertibles even can put in a backup camera I give this thing five stars in more
