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.

Single DIN
Faceplate Security

Detachable / Removable faceplate security: The most common anti-theft feature. It allows you to take the faceplate with you, thus disallowing operation, which deters theft.

Security Codes: Mainly a feature in high end video units which do not have a detachable face / screen. Once the unit is uninstalled (or stolen), a security code (or PIN) is required upon reinstallation. Though you no longer have your unit after the theft, the thief also does not have your security code, which makes the unit useless. The hope is the thief knows which units have security codes and he/she chooses not to steal your unit because of the security code.

Ghost technology: This is not commonly used, but can be found primarily in a select number of 2004-2005 head units. It creates an illusion that no unit is installed by appearing completely black when turned off. Potential thieves may steer clear because it appears as though no head unit is installed.

Anti-theft covers: Similar to ghost and hiding faces because they only create an illusion that the face/unit is not in place.

ESN: Stands for Electronic Serial Number. Allows the disabling of the radio and allows tracking if it is stolen.

Detachable
Security Code
Motorized Faceplate
Some in-dash car stereos feature a motorized faceplate that moves to expose a CD or DVD slot. This is a convenient feature that allows the front display to be larger and easier to read. The positioning of the monitor gives you control over the angle you would like to view information on the stereo.
No
Remote Control
Allows control of specific features and functions from a remote control. Typically they are used to prevent button wear on your radio, or to allow easier navigation of menus.
Yes
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.

50 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.
22 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.
2.5 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.
System Q -- 3 Bands Parametric with 6 Presets
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.

OEL Motion Display (Organic Electroluminescent)
Display Color
The display color refers to the color of the text and or graphics on the receiver.

Multi-Color: When more than one color is on the display, for example one part of the text is white, while the other part is blue.

Variable-Color: The display colors can be changed by the user. If the default color of text/display is blue for example, the user can change the settings to where the color turns to red. Variable color displays are typically described in detail in the item's description.

TFT-LCD Display: In-dash receivers with a video screen that display multiple colors and often times video such as DVD, navigation or other video sources.

64 Variable Colors
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue and Red
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
110 dB
CEA-2006 Compliant
Amplifiers that have been tested to meet specific standards. When a car amplifier meets these standards, you can be sure that it will be able to produce the amount of power specified by the official CEA-2006 rating. Usually, these rating consist of the following items:
  • RMS Power
  • Signal-to-Noise Ratio

This rating applies to both external car amplifiers, as well as the amplifiers inside of in-dash stereos.

No

Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
Yes
MP3 Playback

No
DVD Region Number
This is the region number that the DVD receiver is compatible with. Almost any device that has the ability to play a DVD disk has a region number. DVD region codes restrict playback of movies that come from geographical locations outside of your residing place.
Dual Zone
Dual zone means the stereo is capable of playing multiple audio or video sources between two separate locations.

Please refer to the item description for more details on how dual zone works specifically to the unit you are viewing.

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.
Rear
Number of Front USB Inputs
Number of Rear USB Inputs
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.

Rear 3.5mm

Great for a while

January 27, 2010

I've had this unit for about 6 months now and it's been great up until about a week ago when the unit's USB connection went out (flashes "Mecha Error" which from what I've found is some sort of internal hardware error that will require the unit being sent in in order to fix). Considering this is the main reason I bought the unit I'm a bit disappointed since I can no longer listen to my iPod, but the CD player still works. When the USB connector was working, it was convenient that you can control your USB device through the unit, but if you're like me and have several thousand different artists on your mp3 player, then you're going to be sitting there for a while spinning the little knobs trying to get to the "S's" Some quicker browsing function would have been fantastic.

Best Buy!

January 23, 2010

Great deck with too many features. This deck is amazing but does come with a learning curve. So many features and functions -the remote control is necessary as driving and toggling could be difficult at best. If you are looking for a high power deck without amplifiers look no further. If you want great sound -even from digital music/mp3 look no more. This thing rocks! Just be sure to give yourself a lot of time learning how to properly use this puppy and you wont be disappointed. $130 all in with free shipping, wiring harness and a double din adapter kit to boot -Hello my local was over $200 just for the deck alone.......Sonix rocks!!!

It's ok

December 27, 2009

Me and my cousin both purchased this stereo and it was great at first. We mainly use the iPod connector and rarely use the cd player. We noticed that after a while the stereo stops playing. At first I thought it was the connection but when I called my cousin he said it happens to him also. Besides that it's actually a great stereo. Full sound control.

Won't buy again

December 8, 2009

I DO NOT recommend this product. A few weeks into buying the cd player, I noticed when I pushed the buttons in the morning, it would go off, then come back on...then I would try to push the buttons again, and it would go off but it would stay on and I could navigate through the radio channels. At first, I thought it was the wiring job so I had a second opinion and it was fine. Turns out it was the radio. Silly me, being the seller rating was positive, didn't get any insurance on the cd player, thinking it would be perfectly fine. NOPE! Now the screen has little places where no color shows through. Its basically the faceplate. Everything else is fine.

Great Starter Deck

November 26, 2009

I purchased this deck for my 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 and it is a great addition. The clarity is alright, and it puts out a good amount of power. I love the capability to control my MTX sub woofer level from the deck. The 3 RCAs is great for expandability in the future. The screen is kind of hard to see in direct sunlight, but that is to be expected. The iPod controls are pretty good, but the right hand button is very touchy, and hard to control if you have to reach to get to the deck. Overall I would say its a great beginner deck.

Good overall headunit.

August 17, 2009

This is a great head unit for the money. I'll keep it simple with some pro's and con's......... Pro's Work's with an Ipod great, you don't have to use the Ipod to change you're music. Very customizable setup for you to make the screen just the way you want it. You can change the color of the text to your desire. Con's Hard to navigate through your music if the artist or title is at the end of the alphabet. Ipod cord can be hard to figure out what to do with in certain vehicles. Other than that, I would recommend this CD player to anyone.

Great stereo for the money

August 9, 2009

This stereo has alot of positives. I have always been pleased with Kenwood products and this one did not let me down. Once you figure out the controls, it is very easy to work. Pros- Screen is very easy to read and see. Options on screen displays are pretty cool. Lights up really good at night, looks real cool in the car. Again, once you have the controls figured, it is very easy to operate. Cons- Ipod controls are not as easy as I would have liked. You cannot look for a song on the Ipod unless the "random" feature is turned OFF. If you have a lot of songs on your Ipod and you want to play something in the "W"'s, it takes a minute to get to it. Mine has glitched a few times on me. Meaning I have hit the search button and the face will act as if it as has turned off and is powering back up. But the music does not stop playing. It once froze on me and would not play Ipod or CD's. Dont know why but has not done it again. Overall, I am very pleased to have bought this stereo. And will continue to buy Kenwood products as I stated before, they have never let me down. I bought this one to replace my last Kenwood that lasted me for years.
