Kenwood eXcelon DDX812


$1,000.00 Released April, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Easy to install for people with a little experience, won't take a pro installer too long. Makes the most of stock speakers to provide excellent sound. Can shape the tone well, but the "neutral" setting provides excellent accurate sound on a wide variety of music types.

The Cons:Instruction manual is sketchy, need to look most things up online. Need to be sure to order adapter cables and harnesses separately before you begin install. Bezel is made of glossy plastic, gathers dust and fingerprints.

The Kenwood eXcelon DDX812 is a in-dash entertainment system with a 6.95" touch screen.  It offers Bluetooth features for hands-free cellphone control, allowing the driver to avoid being pulled over in the many states that now have no cell phones while driving laws.

Product Shot 2  The user interface has a changeable skin and allows the user to customize the start up so that each device is particular to its owner's needs -- a feature not many entertainment systems include. Including a remote control, optional HD Radio, iPod control, and ready for additionally purchased navigation features the Kenwood eXcelon DDX812 is a fair example of its genre.
