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

Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
Yes
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
18
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
6
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
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
Yes
WMA Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with WMA files. To burn a WMA encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
Yes
DVD / Video Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver will play DVD (or other listed) video disc formats. Unless otherwise noted, the unit is not guaranteed to play recorded DVDs.
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

Sweet Receiver with some limitations

July 16, 2011

This receiver is very good for the price. i am impressed with the sound quality and the the convenient options like bluetooth and the usb. i have this hooked up in a toyota corolla, it fit as though it was stock. i owned an older pioneer reciver that had more options but at the same time for the price it is worth it. its pretty especially at night and it will make your system blast as i said before it lacks only in tweeking capabilty.

Great Reciever

March 11, 2011

I've owned Pioneer car audio products for almost 15 years and I've always been satisfied with the quality of H/U that have been on the market over time. The Pioneer FH-P8000BT is a very nice system, I have a 2006 Dodge Caravan the I redone the dash opening to DD for the unit.(I gave up my DEH-P7700MP single din for this one) Bluetooth is smooth, I have 5.1 sound in my van and a pioneer DEQ9200 EQ and this H/U is by far nice.

March 2, 2011

I would recommend this HU to anyone looking to upgrade a double din from stock HU. The display is great, sound quality is outstanding. I paired it with some 5-1/4 pioneer component speakers and some pioneer 4x6's and all for 400 bucks. Outstanding performance and overall quality. There is almost too many options on it, but not in the sense that it will confuse some not electronic saavy. The bluetooth works fantastic and just takes a few minutes to sync with phone, but after that it paris automatically.

Not all its cracked up to be

February 1, 2012

I have encounter problems with this unit. It has issues where the system jumps from tuner to blue tooth to telephone functions at a random time. At that point, I lose control of the stereo funtions (as if it has a mind of its own) It's very annoying. It will then shut off, then turn on and do the whole process all over again.

Pioneer FH-P8000BT

October 28, 2011

This is a great Head Unit. It takes a little getting use to, but over-all I very satified. I put this in my 2008 Chevy Silverado. The dash kit & the antanna adapter that came with it all a perfect fit for my truck. I was trying to keep my truck as close to the stock look as possible and I don't think you can get closer than this with any other after market "high end" Head Unit. Pros: Great Sound, fits perfect, Just about any feature you can think of, Remote Control, Total control of your ipod thru the Head Unit. Cons: Interface takes a little getting use to. no aux input. Face plate scratches very easily and picks up finger prints very very easily. Once you learn the interface, you'll love this Head Unit.

Awesome Features...Slow Learning Curve

September 20, 2011

I have owned this HU for several months and have found it to be exactly what I was looking for (Bluetooth, USB, Aux) with a sleek design. The Shuttle wheel menu system takes a little to get used to but once you use it for a while it becomes second nature. Menus, submenus, and more submenus can get confusing but one push of a button and your back out. I haven't hooked up my subwoofer yet so I can't comment on that function.

Great Radio

August 30, 2011

I have been amazed with this Pioneer radio every time I use it. I was planning to use an amplifier and subs, but I am not trying to entertain someone a block away. The audio power from this unit is more than adequate for someone who wants really high quality audio and not blast their ears off. I have very high quality 6X9's in the rear deck of a '97 Buick and Polk 6 1/2 up front with the separate tweeter. I love the MP3 ability, USB option and BlueTooth. The price is better from Sonic than eBay or Amazon.

Best deck unit I've ever had

August 7, 2011

There's a pretty hefty learning curve in regards to how to access the different functions and program the deck. After you get things set up, though, and after you learn how to quickly use the features you use the most, this deck rocks! I have used it for about 2 years now and I have virtually zero complaints. The lack of buttons on the unit is one of the things that gives it such a clean look, but is also one of the reason it can be difficult to navigate, as every button has multiple functions, so that's a necessary trade-off, and worth it in my opinion. Having the inputs in the rear of the deck leans itself toward permanent set up like running the cables through the console or into the glove box. It makes changing the set up difficult but again, very clean and professional because with a little work you can hide all wires and inputs.

I hate this radio

July 19, 2011

Not only is it buggy but its just horribly laid out. Getting it to pair with my wifes iPhone (3GS w/iOS4) is a crap shoot. Sometimes it goes, sometimes not. It NEVER streams BT audio. You also think that it would pair with the first phone it notices that it has a relationship with. Not the case. If you connect to one phone it wont connect to a different phone until you tell it to. Again, that is a crap shoot. As far as the interface goes everything is controlled by the center knob. What item you actually have selected is weird at first since there is no indicator. Its just the item on the middle line of the display. Pushing the knob selects things. Small things like navigating preset stations is in the form of a list and picking the one in the middle via pushing, while navigating up or down, selects it. There are no preset buttons which is a huge pain. Everything is multiple pushes. Nothing is fast and easy. The lights are a BRIGHT blue. We have it in a Toyota Sequoia and it just looks odd. I could have sworn it had illumination color but I guess that was the Clarion I was looking at that I should have purchased. My mistake but an ugly one. Trying to find any menu items is difficult at best. Do I press up, down, right? Ugh, wrong choice how to I exit out? How do I go back to the root menu? Nope that is another button. There was no usability testing by Pioneer on this and I am wondering how much QA. There have also been no updates to address any bugs. I wish I could return this radio because I am not happy. I will be selling it on Craigslist I guess. I hate using it so I cant expect my wife to.

Definately a great purchase!

I have an 05 Mustang and I wanted something that looked factory but still had the features I needed like blutooth (I drive stick), and the iPod capability. This deck honestly looks factory in my car and the wiring was super easy! Only thing is with the factory amp it makes a pop when you turn it on which I don't really mind and all you need in to solder a 5 amp regulator on one of the wires. I think the price is great too for what you get!

Pioneer Deck

April 30, 2011

I did a lot of research before this purchase , for my Nissan Altima 2004. I wanted a deck that wasn't to noticeable and would be too flashy for the criminals. I bought this because of the many many features, you can control the subs all for speakers from the head unit, the remote control is amazing & the Bluetooth setup is unbelievable, this system is what I expected it to be, lovely. I do recommend to all! I have only had installed for 2 weeks, its to early to notice problems, I'll check back in around summer, thanks.
