Well I'm not a car stero expert but it's not like the gyro found in pionner n2 and d1. I'm sure all you have to do is ground that wire.

Edit: keep in mind that the stero doesn't output as good as the top brand models.

So i'm guessing Jensen isn't as bad. When the screen comes out does it block the ac controls and stuff?

Jensen is in no way a high end product. It is a bsic setup with a basic price tag. Jensen is indeed a susiday of Audiovox which is THE largest world wide manufacture of mobile electronics Period! Your product will be backed by a huge company that does stand behind their products 100%.

They aren't bad, I have installed quite a few of them. Picture quality is good, however the sound quality leaves much to be desired. If you are using a 4 channel amp, that may make up some of the sound, and it only has 1 RCA output for the sub which necessitates a 'y-splitter'. All in all a decent product for a budget price.

I honestly hope you are joking............. Jensen and Audiovox are probably some of the absolute worst stereo equipment on the planet.

Its cheap generic horrible sounding shit simple as that anyone who thinks its good has no clue what real stereo stuff sounds like

That's pretty much how I view the brand. I'm not as heavy into audio equipment as much as I was a few years ago but back then Jensen was the stuff you bought at indoor/outdoor swap meets (flea markets for you easterners) and could be had for an incredibly cheap price. Things could have changed in those years but I, personally, wouldn't put a Jensen in a Lexus.

Jenson used to be IT back in the 70s!
Keep in mind that Audiovox also owns Bose! Granted, Bose does all their own research and such, but that research was funded by Audiovox. Unfortunately, the "trickle down" theory is still foreign to the rest of the company.

Your going to get what you pay for with Jensen. Its not going to be as nice as a pioneer or a kenwood but it works and is half the price. If your worried about how good it is ask the sales reps at Crutchfield. There the only place that I buy my stereo equipment from and there sales staff usually if not always knows what there talking about. If your sales guys doesnt know what he's talking about ask for another one or ask for the technical assistance department and see how many problems they have had with them.
