After suffering a blown speaker for months and suffering a radio/CD player that wouldn’t switch bands or stations I finally got a new radio and speakers for the truck.
The radio that was in the truck that came from the factory was by far the best system I ever had. It had lots of features and buttons and knobs. It filled the truck with a volume of sound; not just loudness, but volume. There is a difference.
So I got this new radio. It has minimal knobs and buttons. I like knobs and buttons (don’t turn this into something nasty, Auntie, Lori, g and you other miscreants). I didn’t need a system with all the flashing red and blue lights. I wanted a clock. It is one of these systems that if you want to set something you need to put on your reading glasses and lay across your seat. You need to hit one button several times and then hold it then hit another button a couple times just to change the bass range. I’ve tried to follow the directions to set the clock, but the menu items don’t match the manual. I have no idea of how to even get the clock to display. Worse yet, you can’t turn the damn thing off when the motor is running. The best you can do is turn the volume down to zero of enter standby mode. In the mean time the blue and red lights are still there as bright as day. I have no clock other than the one on my cell phone. I am not impressed with this new Kenwood technology.
