The Dual XDM260 is a very nice radio if you’re just looking to replace a “bread and butter” standard car radio. Plus it has a number of extra features that your stock radio may not have had; a USB port that I use to recharge my cell phone, a single CD player, and an auxiliary input for my satellite radio receiver.
I promise that your neighbors won’t complain about your loud bass shaking the pictures off of their walls.
The Dual XDM260 radio has a very nice tone, and it goes up to a far louder volume than I will ever play it.
The volume does go up to 46, but I am quite comfortable while cruising and listening to it at a volume setting of 13.
It does not break up at full volume, but my speakers are far stronger than the radio requires.
Apparently my trucks former owner had a very powerful sound system, which may be why he kept the radio and amplifier; which left me with an empty rectangular gap in my dashboard that I needed to fill. But I am grateful that he did leave me with four 300 watt speakers that this 60 watt radio cannot possibly overwhelm.
If you just need a nice replacement car radio, the Dual XDM260 is quite adequate and perfectly functional.
There are a lot of “PROS” for this radio; and the only “CON” that I have found is that the display is just a little bit too brightly lit.
