Best Head Unit for The Price!
Posted by: Juni from: on
I purchased this headunit to replace my Sony WX-GT90BT, which was already a great headunit. I was looking for more power, but wasn’t really interested in buying a separate amp to power my 6x9 door speakers. This headunit surprised me and exceeded the 40 watts RMS per channel rating on the box. Currently, from my tests, each channel runs at around 43 watts RMS. The EQ settings are amazing, NFC to connect your phone is such a treat, and the custom color options are awesome for matching up the radio with the rest of your dash lighting. The 5V preouts are amazing and send an amazing quality signal to my subwoofers. Sony is way ahead of its time by adding in a built-in amp and other manufacturers should follow in this direction. I’m waiting for a double DIN version of the MEX-XB100BT to come out and I’ll be first in line to buy it.
Keep in mind, the power and ground wires are 14 gauge wires connected to a fuse box. I suggest you do NOT connect these to your factory wiring harness. Instead, buy an amp wiring kit and connect the power directly to the battery, as recommended in the owner’s manual. I bought this pretty good and affordable wiring kit: Rockford Fosgate RFK10. This is the only way you’re going to get the most power out of the Sony MEX-XB100BT. This isn’t your average 14-17 watt RMS per channel typical headunit. To get the full 40+ watt RMS per channel, power it directly from your battery. It’s worth the time and effort, and you will get every watt for your money; and then some.

For Those Who Care About Sound Most
Posted by: Stocklone from: on
I chose this head unit because I wanted the class D internal amp that came with it. At 40W per channel it is far higher than what everybody else seems to be doing. I've been really happy with it. Initially the highs were a little too bright for me. After a couple weeks, it broke in and it sounds great now. The bass boost is fantastic. It makes my 10" sub hit pretty hard. Great for listening to hip hop when you want lots of bass but not a lot of volume. I imagine it would work well even with just 6x9s. The 10 band equalizer is very nice. I haven't done a custom one yet but switching between the presets change the sound significantly. It even has a preset for electronica so it covers quite a few genres. The aux input has it's own volume boost so you can use your phone with it and your headphones and not have to worry about changing your volume up and down constantly. The color changing on the front is nice. I have it glow based on the music and cycle through all of the colors. It's a nice effect at night.
I could have spent more and got something with a touchscreen but I'm very happy with what I have. When Android Auto is more mature then maybe I will upgrade to a full touch unit. I doubt any proprietary solution will ever be able to compete with what Google will do in the next couple years. Buying an expensive touchscreen unit now is like buying an WinMo phone right before the iPhone/Droid came out.

Great Radio! Glad I purchased it
Posted by: MBP32 from: San Antonio, TX on
Radio sounds great! I'm glad I purchased this unit. Bluetooth works great. Everyone says they hear me clearly when speaking to them over the phone. My iPhone connects via Bluetooth as soon as I enter my vehicle. I can now enjoy listening to my Pandora, YouTube, or any other programs without the need to have any cables connected to it. It gives you the option to plug in your usb stick, but haven't had a chance to try it. I don't have the need to use it other than to charge my phone. The 100x4 boost the sound so much it sounds like I have a subwoofer in my truck. And I do not have any kind of high quality speakers installed other than the stock speakers it came with. The customization is pretty neat as well. It lets you download an app which communicates with your device and sets up the display color, sound, Bluetooth settings, etc. So far I'm happy with my purchase and recommend this one to all.

Great head unit
Posted by: Vinh from: on
I purchased this to my 2000 Jeep wrangler. I needed something high power and can do USB audio. This thing is amazing. It has a class D amp built in. Has its own external power supply fuse box and outputs 45watts RMS x 4. I have a two pairs of 5.25" kicker comps and they sound amazing as the RMS for the speakers where 45watts RMS each. It was a perfect setup. Everything sounds clear, clean and loud. Only con is how they laid out the menu settings.

BAD! DO NOT BUY! NOT RELIABLE!!!
Posted by: divine from: on
It started as a great model with a built in amp. For the price, I thought it was a great deal. Overtime, I saw that the system was inconsistent with its start up. The demo would start playing randomly, even if turned off. And finally one day I started my car and the radio would not start. There was no power up. I checked the fuse and everything. Finally I gave up and brought it in to geek squad, and the installation guy told my that this model it self was not working properly. He told me that lots of customers came back complaining about this system. Temporally I have my factor system in as a replacement while the sony system is being repair. I expected better from sony!!!

I upgraded from the Sony 350mp for the 100bt for the Bluetooth and extra power. It sounds much better but programming is slightly more complicated

Lives up to its reputation
Posted by: Backstagemom from: on
This sound system was rated as one of the highest for auto audio. Best Buy was the only place that had it and it was at a great price. Very retro looking but with lots of awesome surprises. Put this in an 86 Camaro. Looks awesome and sounds phenomenal

Great stereo for the money
Posted by: Donnie from: on
Sounds great, the built in amplifier gives your speakers enough power to let you feel the music. Love the options to set frequency cut off range.

Easy to use, but it has two problems
Posted by: Stewfoot from: on
The good: the buttons are easy to use. Once you understand what the buttons do and where they are placed, you can keep your eyes on the road while operating the device.
The bad: The Blue Tooth default is to use Sony's app "App Remote" is a waste of time, has no value added, and you have to override the car stereo, every time you turn it on. Also, the clock appears to be having issues defaulting an hour early when certain events and buttons are pushed.
