Thoughts on this radio? - Page 2 - GM Forum - Buick, Cadillac, Chev, Olds, GMC & Pontiac chat


Audio (and aftermarket electronics) This is your place for alarms, remote starters, to brag about your system, exaggerate your db levels, or simply ask questions for stock or aftermarket audio. No Flames! (except from roasted amps)

I agree with above, Jenson sucks. The kid on my floor has one and constantly complains how it scratches his CD'* and skips and ****.

you can get a decent JVC for 100 bucks that will work great. (I put one in my mom'* grand am and it works awsome. (for 100 bucks, but much better than stock))

That'* an excellent unit and will serve you well, and it'* only what 25 more than you were looking at the Jensen for. Just a suggestion.
Thanks for the heads.. I wrote down the model on that pioneer. Going to go with one of those.
