Cobra - Cobra 29LX

Rating: None

Product Information

MSRP: $96.42
Average Price: $108.35
Manufacturer: Cobra
Yes: 23 / No: 0

Well, the unit was well packaged has a lot of features, however....

Upon installing the unit, could not get any sound! Called Cobra Customer Service(NO TOLL FREE NUMBER), but they have bankers hours! Tried their website for troubleshooting, NON-EXISTENT! So after waiting through the weekend, called the NON-TOLL FREE Customer Service Number, and after 5 minutes of troubleshooting, determined that I had a faulty speaker.

I'm returning the unit to Amazon for a replacement.

Will update on the review when replacement is installed.

Price: $100.00
Pros: Weather radio and a host of other features
Cons: None that I know of
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Have owned a few Cobra radios over the last 40 years. This one I've had since the 29LX was introduced several years ago. Quality unit and would recommend to anyone. Several features on this unit include weather radio, weather alerts, weather scan, channel scan, programmable face lighting, and face dimmer. Bone stock and setup correctly these radios have a good 4-7 mile line of sight range and, can be modified to easily triple that. Would suggest the use of the Arizona Rocky Road mount with this radio due to it's size and weight. 18' of RG 8 coax and at least a 4' antenna such as the Firestick.

Price: $200.00
Pros: full size, full features
Cons: It's sort of too big for a Jeep
Recommended? Yes

Comments: A very good CB radio, that I bought for my full size Bronco. But sold the Bronco, now have a Jeep. I have seen mounts for Jeeps for smaller radios, or that some Jeeper's use the Radios where everything is built into the microphone. This radio is large, and fitting it into my Wrangler did present a challenge.

Comments: I actually have the Cobra 29 LX BT.

Did not see an option for that one on the menu.

NOT a small radio.

Kinda' pricey.

My buddy said: "what about the passenger's knees"?

To which I replied: "I'm not the passenger".

Price: $130.00
Pros: 4 LED Colors, Camo Color Finish
Cons: None yet.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This is a larger CB and some homework searching the threads for various mounting options is a good idea. I found the above the mirror location great. Using the clamps and brackets a simple clean method with no hole drilling required. Secure, clean and if removed no physical damage left behind.

Pros: Clear sound and great range.
Cons: None so far.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: This radio is perfect for anyone who wants a newer style digital radio with great functionality, and range that the Cobra name is known for. When I've been out on the trail and none of my buddies can contact people back at base camp, this radio can!

Pros: Easy to set-up
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: The 29 series is a great "out of the box" set-up. If you're new to the concept of installing audio equipment, this set-up is right for you. The 29 series is Cobra's flagship series and comes chock-full of features.
