In-Dash Receiver Specifications

Receiver Size

Single DIN: 1 DIN dimensions will work with all single DIN installation kits we have to offer. Single DIN radios are the most common size for after-market stereos.

Single DIN slot with flip-out screen: The DIN stereo includes a retractable, flip-out screen. Before purchasing, make measurements to be sure there is no interference with dash accessories such as A/C vents or shift levers.

Single DIN slot with a larger face: Standard single DIN size, but the display is larger then the standard single DIN size. Due to the nature of the larger face, problems may arise when installing in particular vehicles. These stereos are great for single DIN slots where you want a larger screen.

1.5 DIN: This size is very uncommon in vehicles, however this size opening is most commonly found in Chrysler and Chevrolet vehicles.

Double DIN: Approximately 4-inches in height, this size is becoming more common every year. Prior to 2000, this size was typically only found in Japanese vehicles such as those made by Honda or Toyota. Now, it is becoming more popular for many vehicles to be fit with a Double DIN opening.

Double DIN
Peak Power Output
This form of power rating refers to the maximum amount of power an electronic device can handle or output in an instant without damage occurring. Often times this maximum is achieved during a brief musical burst, such as a drum accent, or low bass hit.

Some manufacturers display peak power ratings on the face of their products to increase the appeal to consumers. The RMS power rating is more accurate, and we recommend using it for product comparison.

80 watts x 4 channels
RMS Power Output
The amount of continuous power, measured in watts, that an amplifier produces is called RMS power. The higher the RMS rating, the louder and cleaner your music sounds. The RMS output figure is much more accurate than the peak rating when comparing products.
40 watts x 4 channels
Preamp RCA Outputs
RCA outputs, commonly known as preamp outputs, allow you to connect one or sometimes multiple external amplifiers. An in-dash receiver will commonly have one, two or three sets of RCA outputs that can be used to connect external amplifiers and other components. One pair of RCA outputs will typically provide a full range signal that can be used for most subwoofer or speaker amplifiers. Two pairs of RCA outputs can typically be configured as four full range signals, or also as two full range and two subwoofer signals. Three sets of RCA outputs will almost always produce four speaker signals and two subwoofer signals for use with multiple amplifiers.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Subwoofer)
Dedicated Subwoofer Preamp RCA Output
A dedicated output that has a built-in low-pass crossover for specific connection to a subwoofer amplifier that powers a low frequency driver, typically a subwoofer.
Yes
Preamp Voltage
The preamp output rating is measured in volts (V). The higher the rating, the stronger the signal. This results in less unwanted noise being picked up.
2 volts
Built-In Equalizer
The number of graphic or parametric equalizer bands the stereo receiver is equipped with. The more EQ options, the more you will be able to adjust your music to your liking.
3-Band Graphic
Display Type
The type of display on your receiver refers to the monitor that is used to display the source information such as song names, radio stations, or track times.

Dot-Matrix Text Display: A simple display which uses dots in specific illuminated color(s) to light up and form letters or numbers that are displayed on the receiver.

Graphic or Motion Display: Typically found in mid to high-end receivers and give your text information and receiver more life by adding motion, backgrounds, or multiple colors to your display. There are types of graphic displays such as 3D Graphic, Motion, and OEL (Organic Electroluminescent) displays. They can range from one color to full color displays and typically allow you to select from one of many built-in animations, background images, screensavers or other graphics to enhance your experience and add an extra bit of personality to your system. Some units also come with software that allow you to load your own customizable pictures or animations.

LCD Monitor Display: Can be as small as 2" or as large as 10". Some LCD displays are motorized for angle adjustment. LCD monitors display full motion video playback as well as your standard text such as track status, radio station information and more depending on the receiver's features.

Audio / Video Inputs

USB Input
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver features an input to connect a USB device via standard USB or mini-USB. The USB input may be a connection on the front or rear of the unit with an extension cable for connecting devices to the receiver. Some units have an optional input that allows for a USB adapter to be purchased separately and used with the unit.

Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

3.5mm
This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

Optional
This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

1 Set of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
Front 3.5mm Audio Input

Bad review

November 3, 2016

Was not impressed by this product. The volume is very hard to adjust when you are driving sound poor. I would recommend that you spend a few more dollars and get a different system. Had to take it to a local store to see how to install it. Had very little instructions.wosh I had stepped up to a better model.

It's an Okay unit but spend a few bucks more to get something better!

September 23, 2016

After installing the radio I have been very disappointed. I originally started with a stock stereo in my car and replaced the stock speakers with kickers. The sound was great with the stock stereo but I wanted to get the most out of the speakers so I tried this receiver thinking I would be able to do so. The sound quality is actually really bad with this unit. It only has a bass and treble adjustment, no high mid or low adjustments. The receiver barely puts out sound until I start cracking it up really high and then if I go just a little too high then it starts to sound really bad. The features of the receiver are cool and it does put out sound but the sound board on this unit is really cheap. Spend a little more and get something better or just get a simple single din receiver that will sound amazing.

Good for the price.

November 27, 2016

Headunit is nice quality, looks nice sounds nice. Has many features many of which I don't even use. One thing that bugged me was the USB attachment it has doesn't allow you to play music off your phone. It allows you to put flash drives on but who does that? I dont at least. Anyways bluetooth pairing is very fast. Doesn't have a mids adjustment on the equalizer only bass and treble but it does have a sub volume. One complaint is when you have it on bluetooth it will always give you the message "make sure your bluetooth device volume is turned all the way up" I haven't figured out how to make that go away.

Not great. Not terrible. Just ok.

November 25, 2016

Didn't connect to iPhone as well as it should. Extra wiring and connectors need to be purchased.

Microphone is terrible at picking up voice during phone calls. People complain they can't understand what your saying.

Touch screen isn't the greatest when it's cold.

Software crashes when you plug a lightening cord from iPhone into the USB data port. Unit will not turn off and needs to be hard reset.

Typical stuff to be expected from china I guess.

You get what you pay for. Price was cheap so... meh

Great Sounding Unit

September 20, 2016

Purchased this for my girlfriends car, Replaced a single DIN with a fold out screen. First thing I noticed was for whatever reason the old radio was sensitive to engine noise, where as this boss unit Was NOT. It is very quiet. I had to drop the Levels on all sources because at first it was Too Loud or Silent. Literally. 0 was silent 1 was "im yelling at my girlfriend and shes sitting right next to me" Im sure this had something to do with the factory amp in the car, but after dropping the levels, the volume was much more linear. Unit looks good in the dash, and my only complaint is that she needs a special app on her phone to stream via Bluetooth. Seems kind of odd that Bluetooth would require an app. I have a Pioneer AppRadio that cost much more than the Boss, and only has half of the functions of the Boss. Long story short if you're looking to fill a Double Din hole with a unit that looks and sounds good, (and you dont need a cd/dvd player) Look no further.

September 11, 2016

Installation was a snap in my 2001 Ford Expedition that the fit guide said would not fit. It replaced an existing sony I bought from sonic that used my android phone for a controller. Don't buy that sony unit, it sucked. The Boss unit though has been awesome from the moment I turned it on. Easy of interface, easy of features, powerful clear output, and great bright display too. Bluetooth phone audio equal to my factory chevy cruze unit, pairing automatically goes super fast,. and my streaming resumes where it left off when the key is turned off. Love this unit, great price too.

Wife's Birthday Present

October 19, 2016

This being in my wife's vehicle I don't get a lot of chances to use it, however, the install was easy. I did some of the initial setup, everything seemed straight forward.
Be aware, this unit does not have disk media. I did not read the description thoroughly when purchasing. My wife figured the work around by uploading her local musicians CD's to the cloud and then streaming them. Definitely better than carrying around a bunch of disks.
I have not installed a backup camera with it yet. This is one of the features she was looking for.
If this unit would fit in my car, I would buy a second one.

Good double din with backup cam

October 18, 2016

This is a good head unit with backup cam, bluetooth, mirror link, micro sd.
I could not get the steering wheel controls to work with my 04 monte carlo with the axxess adapter. Probably need to fiddle with it some more.
FM radio cuts in and out in loudness as i drive. Not sure if i have a bad connection or with my adapter or not.
The 1st unit i bought had a bad volume knob. Sonic is awesome with returns and had me another one within a week. Volume knob on the 2nd one was good.

GOOD RADIO MISSING SOME STANDARD FEATURES

October 5, 2016

THIS IS A VERY NICE RADIO FOR THE MONEY. I LOVE MIRROR LINK, THE FACT THAT IT DOESNT HAVE A CD/DVD PLAYER(NOBODY USES THEM ANY MORE), CHEAP PRICE. I FEEL THIS IS MISSING 2 VERY STANDARD FEATURES IN OTHER RADIOS, 1 BEING A VIDEO OUT PUT. WHY HAVE A VIDEO STEREO THAT CAN NOT SEND OUT TO ADDITIONAL SCREENS? AND THIS UNIT DOES NOT HAVE A REMOTE CONTROL. I FEEL ANY VIDEO CAR STEREO SHOULD HAVE THESE 2 FEATURES. ITS MY FAULT FOR NOT CHECKING BEFORE I ORDERED BUT I FIGURED ANY RADIO WOULD HAVE THESE.

Will it connect by bluetooth to my phone or do i have to plug in an aux cord. And if it requires an aux cord, where do i plug it in?
Zeke S on Sep 29, 2016
Best Answer: Yes it will connect to your phone via Bluetooth. No need for an aux cord for the phone. So you can play music on your phone via Bluetooth. This unit has a Aux in and a SD slot that is located bottom left behind a cover.
I have some movies and music that are on my SD card That i use instead of using my Bluetooth all the time.
hope this helps.
