Pros Sounds good, easy to install the 5v outputs are nice. With the IPOD adapter it plays MP3s fine though slow to move through the IPOD Menus.
Cons Put in a CD one day an it will not Eject it. It still plays the CD but will not give it back! Worked for an hour with an Eclipse tech on the phone and finally he gave up and told me to send it back to the company. If I take it out it will be replaced
Summary The display is difficult to read when any sun light is shining. The controls are slow to react and with the difficulty in reading the display you can't memorize where you want to dial to. Though I like the sound I will be replacing the unit with Alpine or Kenwood. I like the new media players from Alpine, but I have had good luck with Kenwood in the past. I have not decided yet.
Pros This is one of the few units that can compete and beat Alpine, specifically when you go for price vs value. Still it is great quality as it i made by Fujitsu 10, which is one of the best manufacturers in japan.
Cons The equalizer could be more channels.
No USB connector.
Summary "Fully Japanese."
High input voltage.
Non Fader output.
Crossover for front speakers, and sub woofer
Independant volume control for sub woofer.
The 3 channel EQ with control of the width of the frequency the center frequency
Pros Eclipse is a good brand, the unit offers a lot of sound customization, love the ipod controls (I like them better than the alpine), I like the looks of the unit, and price is pretty good too.
Cons just about everything is controlled from the dial, which has a tendency to not recognize what direction you are pressing correctly (ex- thinks you hit up when you hit right). Hasn't been a big issue for me though.
Summary If you are looking for good quality with good sound and good price, this should be in the running. Have enjoyed mine for a while, unlike MasteroftheHelm.
Pros IT WAS FEATHER LIGHT, LIKE IT WAS EMPTY. EASYLY INSTALLED.
Cons WHERE DO I START, FIRST LOOKS LIKE A VERY CHEAPLY MADE, CD'S CONSTANTLY GET STUCK IN UNIT WOULD HAVE TO TAKE IT OUT OF CAR TO GET CD OUT PAIN IN THE ASS. AND WHEN THEY GET STUCK NO PLAY FOR CD'S COULD NOT HOOK IT UP TO MP3 OR IPOD. COMPLETE JUNK !
Summary I HAVE BOUGHT ECLIPSE UNITS FOR MY PORSCHE 944 TURBO AND MY TOYOTA TACOMA SINCE 2001. TAKE VERY GOOD CARE OF ALL , USED TO BUY ALPINE ONLY UNTIL I HEARD ECLIPSE UNITS THEY SOUND GREAT THE BEST. BUT THERE IS ALWAYS SOMETHING GOING WRONG WITH THEM THE LAST ONE WAS A 3100 DID NOT LAST 9 MONTHS PIECE OF CRAP. I AM TRIED OF PAYING GOOD MONEY FOR JUNK UNITS WARRANTY IS A JOKE. YOU MAY GET 5 TO 8 VOLTS WHEN THEY ARE WORKING BUT IT IS NOT WORTH TIME AND MONEY. PEOPLE BEWARE OF ECLIPSE CAR AUDIO HEAD UNITS I HAVE LEARNED THROUGH EXPERIENCE NOT HEARSAY. WOULD NOT WASTE MY TIME OR YOUR TIME SUBMITTING THIS REVEIW. IT IS FOR YOUR BENEFIT LEARN FOR MY MISTAKES. I DECLARE ECLIPSE IS A MISTAKE .THE TRUTH WIIL SET YOU FREE
