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
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.

None
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.
4 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.
EEQ 7
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.

Blue
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue
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.

Yes

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

Monitor Screen Features

Awesome buy!!!

February 24, 2011

I recently bought this to replace the stock HU in my 03 Ford Escape, and its probably one of the best purchases I have made in a long time. Everything hook up perfectly, and it really brought my system to life. iPod interface is excellent. Bluetooth works like a champ, and when talking on it, no one can tell I'm using a headunit. Recently installed an amp and 2 10" subs to it, and it sounds fantastic!

Great Sound! Good Price.....

January 5, 2011

Ordered this unit along with the conversion kit to replace defective factory Bose stereo in my 2003 Infiniti G35. The items arrived on time as promised. The stereo sound is excellent, and I like having the freedom to tweak my own sound for whatever style of music I'm playing. Love the BMW-esque i-Drive-like central controller, although some people might prefer a more simpler setup. The buttons are on the small side, but you'll quickly develop a feel for where everything is, so its not a deal-breaker in my opinion. Would recommend for anyone who's into music and fiddling with their sound, but not willing to spend a whole lot .......

Great product at a great price!

December 3, 2010

I just bought this for my Buick LeSabre to replace the stock double din cd player that was starting to sound old and skip over bumps and sewers. I have always used Pioneer and Pioneer Premier stereos, speakers and amplifiers in all of my cars and this unit really lives up to my expectations. Superb sound quality and really brings the music alive! The menu is a little hard to navigate because I am used to the touch screen of the AVIC-D3 but overall it is awesome. The bluetooth also works flawlessly with my blackberry. When I get a call it's easy to answer and hear the person on the other end and when I hang up or they hang up it goes right back to the cd or radio. Overall I would highly recommend this unit.

Great Stereo

December 3, 2010

This stereo is very high quality. I have replaced a couple of stock stereos in cars over the years and have always found Pioneer to be the best choice in replacing them. Every function on this stereo works perfectly, the sound is amazingly good using my iPod. The radio picks up quite a few stations, even though I hardly use it. The Bluetooth functionality is the most useful feature; I can answer/make calls going down the road with very little trouble, and everyone can hear me very well. All in all cannot be beat for the price that I paid for it.

Amazing head unit

August 17, 2010

This head unit added looks and nice function to control my subs in great detail. I would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to not spend to much and get the most out of their money. Pros: Everything, looks, lots and lots of controls to tune music how you want it for your set up, bluetooth audio, and phone built in, which works very good as well. I am very happy with it and will probably look to put the same one in my future car. Cons: Really there is only one thing, I don't even know if it has to do with the unit. Everyone in a while, not many times, when playing music from my ipod it will "skip" like how Cd's do when scratched, then stop playing, all you have to do is push play again and its fine, but really that could just be because its an apple product and you know how bug free those things are.

Almost Everything

July 29, 2010

It is a solid system. Made my stock speakers sound better, syncs perfectly with my iPhone using the contacts and the calls are clear. The iPod connectivity is amazing and is able to go through all the playlists rather quickly with the letter search tool. The design and display is alright, but if the lights were able to change color it would help it blend more into my interior. When the sun is on the display it is impossible to read. Other then that it just works well and if you no longer want to accept phone calls while driving and fear getting a ticket or worse crashing this is a great alternative to paying that ticket or paying the pipper. I would recommend to a friend, but would definitely say unless your absolutely able to part with the money than go for it otherwise wait for a drop in price or order something less expensive.

Good Deal!

July 26, 2010

This product is pretty good. It was easy to hook up and sounds great. I was not real happy with the bluetooth phone pairing...difficult to get working...and it will only pair one device. It is tricky to learn the basic functions of the unit, but once you know the standard ones, the ones you use all the time...it's not bad. The features on the unit make it a really good buy...

The Good, the bad and the affordable...

July 5, 2010

This head unit supplies signal for 3 diamond audio D5 amplifiers running Hertz 3 way component set, Kicker rear fill and solo classic sub section. The Good: sound quality/signal quality is very good, clean and has plenty of adjustments in it's built in EQ section. The build quality and buttons all work well. The iPod control works without any issues and is faster than most I've used. The overall design blends well with many interiors. The bluetooth works really well with cellphone for hands free operation. The Bad: the remote requires a steady aim at the head unit for it to work. Not enough buttons on the unit like Pause, attenuate so the single rotary 4 way button gets a lot of use which makes finding things difficult at times. The display is hard to see at times in direct sun light and blue is the only color. The display is very limited in what it shows. I recommend this unit for it's quality construction good/clean signal output and people looking for stock appearance "especially piano black finish" at an excellent price point.

Great radio.

June 24, 2010

This is a nice radio. Bought this to replace my factory radio on a Rav4. Works very well as has plenty of power to drive my OEM speakers. Some people complain that it takes a while to get used to the controls, and I agree, however I like the fact that the radio looks uncluttered since it has just a few buttons. USB mass storage playing works great and I bought a regular flash card to put in all my music. Playing via the USB memory does not give you playlists, but you can organize the music in folders. iPhone playing works very well, although sometimes I get a "not made for iPhone" message. Everything works fine, so I just ignore the message. Bluetooth works well, and people can hear me without yelling, probably due to the noise canceling. Had issues with the iPhone, but iOS4 seems to have fixed those issues. Great radio overall.

Great CD Player with ALL the options

May 29, 2010

The Deck itself looks great, and has plenty of power for your speakers. I'm using this in my Hummer H3, and it compliments my monsoon sound very well. The iPod controls work flawlessly, same with the Aux input. The bluetooth is awesome. i have the mic mounted just about the head unit, and i dont have to yell, or even talk that loud, for the person on the other side to hear me. I can also hear the person on the other end loud and clear. I have had no complaints of cutting out, or echoes. love it. Setting up your radio presets, as well as navigating through everything is confusing at first. i can easily see where many people would get lost. the instruction sheet included in the box is pretty much useless. I had to get the instructions off of the Pioneer website. Overall, I would highly recommend this unit. The functionality, power, and sleek looks will compliment any sound system.

May 18, 2010

Pioneer put out another great product. this item had all the features I wanted and they work with ease. Bluetooth works well and I pod controls also work good. I use a jump drive to play music from all the time. My only complaint would be that Pioneer still does not have the best quality random option, it seems there are songs that never get played.

Hands Down, Amazing

April 11, 2010

I have always loved Pioneer. I just installed this on my 08 Subaru Impreza, and do not regret it at all. I did the install myself, which was pretty quick. This unit has all the features i need, all of which are very easily used (I read a lot of reviews of people saying it's confusing... I'm still trying to figure out what they had such a hard time with). iPod capabilities are great. The Bluetooth sounds great and is very easily installed. I will be adding an external hard drive for music soon. 4V Preouts are a definite plus. My sub sounds very clear and much louder now. The unit itself looks great as well, and really is not too bright at night. You can dim the unit in the main menu, which you can access when the unit is turned off.
