Sound Quality

Now let’s arrive a topic we all are interested, sound quality, this double din can be your best partner on the road, you and your car and music are completely unique, and this double din will make sure to fulfill all music tastes with an amazing sound display, some of the features you will find on it to increase the sound quality are an Auto-EQ that will suit and adjust at any gender, and Time alignment.

Pro & Con’s

This din also have bluetooth connectivity, this feature will save you the hustle to buy the USB cable, and you will not be missing it thanks to great connectivity and sound, also this feature will allow you to make hands free calls and control all your music and videos from your phone, also you will have an advanced sound distribution feature too.

Supporting almost all sound and video formats, this double din is really amazing, will look amazing on your car and you will have a lot of amazing features to play with.


However, not everything is baby blue, some users report having a used din instead of a completely brand new one, however as I can see they just returned and receive a brand new in no time, is well speak about shipping is really fast and you will receive a double din well packaged with all the parts included.

Sometimes bluetooth will fail outside the vehicle, however who wants to hear their music outside their car, if you are not trowing a street party that is not an issue.

And the last negative comment is about some defective dins, but that is common and the fabric will just replace it with no problems.



This is a really amazing product, an amazing company that will always make sure to give all their customers the best products, so this double dis is completely worth it, you will have great sound quality and a lot of amazing features on it, your money will be well invested on this unit, also is really easy to install, so no more money spend in installation there!
