The Eclipse CD3414G is the most affordable in-dash receiver at Sonic Electronix. At $74.99 with free shipping, you get all of the great "up-selling" features at an entry level price. We have sold thousands of entry level CD players from JVC, Kenwood, Sony and Pioneer but they (a) only play CDs (this unit plays MP3s and CDs!) (b) do not have 2 sets of preamp outputs like this unit (c) do not have a built-in Electronic Serial Number which prevents thieves from using it (sticker is included to post on your vehicle windows to deter theft.)

In addition to the aforementioned 3 selling points, the Eclipse CD3414G car stereo also includes an Aux Input and dual rotary controls. Dual rotary controls give you total control over all of the amazing features...oh and did we mention this is an ECLIPSE radio, not a cheap "Pyle" or "Boss"? At this price, with shipping included you simply cannot find a better deal from us, or anywhere for that matter. That is why we bought 3000 pieces...because we are sure you and others will appreciate this awesome deal!

Remember, if you are looking to buy the JVC KD-G140, KD-G340, KD-AR290, Kenwood KDC-138, KDC-MP208, KDC-MP238, Alpine CDE-9870, Pioneer DEH-11E, DEH-1100MP, DEH-P2900MP or other entry level unit, THINK AGAIN! This unit blows them all away in terms of quality sound reproduction, options, and sound.

This is a closeout item that had an original retail price of $200! All the others mentioned have retail prices of around $100!

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.

ESN - Electronic Serial Number
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.
No
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.

40 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.
17 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.
2 Pairs (Front and Rear)
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.
No
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.
Equalizer with preset tone curves
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.

Dot-Matrix Text Display
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.
Green
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

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.

Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

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.
No
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.

1 Set of Rear Audio RCA Inputs

Monitor Screen Features

Screen Size
This is the size of the monitor on the unit. It is measured diagonally and in inches. The bigger the number the larger the screen.
MirrorLink Compatible
MirrorLink allows connectivity between a smartphone and the aftermarket car receiver. The consumer gets into the car, connects the phone with a cable, and gains access to phone applications through the car stereos controls such as navigation and steering wheel buttons. MirrorLink allows consumers to use their smartphones safely and simply, keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.
Device Mirroring
This is the ability to "mirror" a device's screen (i.e SmartPhone or Tablet) onto the headunit's display. Please check with the manufacture's website for updated information regarding compatibility and cables required for proper performance.

Eclipse CD3414G / CD3414

March 2, 2010

For the price, this is a great product. Good sound, easy to install. However, mine arrived with the ASM feature activated. This automatically turns the unit on with the ignition and starts playing a FM radio station. There are no instructions on how to deactivate it or at least program it to a station I would prefer. I have pushed every button on the unit to no avail. An owner's manual should be included with the unit. However Sonic has it for download on the item page.

Great Entry Level Deck

February 7, 2010

When it comes to entry level cd receivers on the market, this is by far one of the best in terms of functionality, performance, and features. The ESN feature alone, makes you wonder why other companies aren't using the same technology.

Good headunit

July 19, 2011

I bought this headunit simply as a cheap way to hook up my sub amplifier to the stereo, give a little more power to the 4 door speakers (aftermarket Pioneers), and let me hook up an Aux cable to plug in to my iPod. It has done the job very well, though I kinda wish I would have bought a more expensive one so I could have more capabilities and possibly more power for the speakers. Wiring and installation was a little interesting with this because it does not come with a manual. I knew that when buying it and was fine with, just be sure you're comfortable with figuring it out.

great value

January 25, 2010

bought this as a cheap option till i could afford a more expensive one. was incredibly surprised by the sound quality over the stock HU. the stock speakers sound 10x better which surprised me, cause the use to sound horrible and i figured i would replace them with cheap but decent speakers but now there is no need. but despite all its options it would be nice to find a rather inexpensive stereo like this one with 6 channels cause my car has 6 speaker locations stock but all i can find is expensive high priced HUs but a cheap amp fixed that. anyway would definitly recommend to anyone looking for a inexpensive stereo with plenty to offer. its also incredibly tough was dropped several times before it was finally installed all from 5ft high and was stepped on once and still works great.

Very Very Impressed!!

July 2, 2009

I was very impressed about the sound quality I got from this unit...... it's beyond my expectation!! I am very pleased to have it, it's much better than $200.00 car stereo I have seen in the past. Very stylish! Installation is a piece of cake even though there is NO manual. It took me 30 minutes to install the whole unit and enjoy listening to my favorite music!!

Better than anticipated!

February 24, 2010

Great unit that I would recommend to anyone. Plays CDs and discs burned with MP3s flawlessly. For the price, you can't beat it with a stick. Only thing I wish it had was a removable faceplate... not a huge issue for me, though. Also, the controls are fairly intuitive though I've thought to myself 'huh?' a few times trying to navigate settings, etc.. Once you get used to it though, it's becomes a non-issue.

Looks good, but I guess I just got unlucky...

January 14, 2010

I bought this head unit based on all the great reviews, but I guess I just got a dud. I hooked it all up (and yes, I know what I'm doing), turned the key and all I got was 3 fast clicks and some smoke. The trim that goes around the faceplate (If you can call it that), didn't seem to fit either. I didn't mess with it much though.

But sonicelectronix handled my return very well, and everything else I ordered is working great! They'll be getting my business again for sure.

Eclipse Radio

March 22, 2010

I would recommend this company because, 1. The product was exactly as explained. It goes great with the amp and ipod because it has inputs and outputs externally. 2. Great communication and told exactly when it would be shipped. 3. The price was the lowest i found. The only con i have is the product didn't have a remote, it was explained in the product info that it didn't come with one.

Overall, A+

This unit sounds as good or better than other comparable units costing three to four times as much. The installation is easy and I love the Ipod accessory jack which comes in handy for my Motorola Android also. There is no other near audiophile quality head unit that I know of that is even close to this one in terms of ease of use and user features aimed at the budget minded consumer.

Thanks Again Sonic!

Eclipse CD3414G is a no brainer @ $75 shipped.

December 11, 2009

I dont know how sonicelectronix can sell them this cheap with the plug and free shipping but I wont complain. I bought 2 of these from them and my brother bought 1. I will tell everyone about this great deal. The sound quality is great for a car cd player. I would guess that no other player for $75 sounds this good. This has a lot of features and seems to be built really well. It hasnt skipped once and even tells you the name of the cd and song, on some cds. Probably just newer enhanced cds. I give this product an A+ and I also give sonicelectronix an A+. I had these units 3 days after I bought them on ebay.

Nice quality for the price

November 6, 2009

This is a quality unit for a good price. I needed something simple and basic, and this looks good and works well. The feel is solid and the sound is good. The dark silver color is a near match to the color of the car. As the listing says, there is no manual, and so far I have not been able to locate one from Eclipse's website or online. So I am not sure how to work the security CD feature yet, but I can figure it out if I really want.

Overall I really like this product and wish I had a better system to hook it up to. Right now it is just connected to some low end speakers with no amp. But it sounds good and you can tell it is better audio than what you'd get for the same price at Wal-Mart.

I had in mind one radio (Kenwood)which Sonic Electronix carried and a box pops up; For the same price, you may want to consider this one (Eclipse CD3414G). What a novel idea and what a deal! Went with the alternative recommendation which had many more FAB's (Features, advantages and benefits) and a better warranty for the same price. Unbelievable! Shipping was faster than they predicted!

Great product....incredible sound. The only downside is it doesn't have a low, mid, and high EQ. Only a bass and treble adjustment. But just increasing the bass by one will make quite a difference. The product is definitely better than most stereos for this price, but I was very disappointed when I received it. It came in a box with the stereo, parts, screws, and wires. No instructions whatsoever. You basically have to hardwire everything to the harness that you have to buy. The product itself is amazing.

Even though the deck did not come with an instruction manual it was easy to install and easy to figure out how the program it. It has been working great ever since I installed it.

Great Value in a Radio/cd player

November 25, 2009

I purchased this item because of what it offered for the price. The only draw back with my purchase is there was no instructions with the unit. it was a learn as you go type thing. Even with that, it did not take long to figure out how to operate the unit. The sound quality is good, it has good reception range and the CD's sound incredible. No matter how good a product is, there is always room for improvement someplace. For this reason it will not receive the highest rating.

I love this head unit. Sounds fantastic, easy to work, plays cd's that skip in my other players! Easy to hook up with color coordinated wires and FREE factory wire harness included in the deal. There is nothing bad I can say about this unit. I couldn't be happier with this purchase. Compares very favorably to other units that cost a lot more.

I purchased this stereo from Sonic due to their recommendation and I'm glad I did! This stereo rocks and doesn't skip while playing your CD's. The installation is easy, since the installation package that Sonic sends with it. This stereo is a high dollar value at low cost price!

I don't think you could buy a better CD/MP3/Radio for the price. It sounds great and is easy to use. The only problem I have with it is the blue LCD display background lightens from the normal driver's perspective. This is only an aesthetic complaint as you can still see the display fine. It is only noticeable at night.

eclipse rocks

June 25, 2009

I just recently purchase a the head unit, and I had to let you guys know how happy I am with this puchase. This was a great buy for the price. I absolutly love it. No problem to operate, great sound quality, and a breeze to install with the FREE install kit and wiring harness. But what has really impressed me with this unit is the fact that it plays cd's that skip in most any other player I've tried to play them in. One old one by Led Zeppelin that is rare and live which was burned by a friend for me that I thought I'd never get to listen to uninterrupted again. It won't even play in my son's $200 Pioneer head unit, but plays in my $75 unit bought from you guys!! HA!!

Best Choice you will make

November 27, 2009

I bought this stereo over six months ago and I could not love it more. Eclipse is not a very well known brand, but their stuff is better than Kenwood and Pioneer. The pictures online make it look really weird, but I assure you in person it looks much sleeker. Besides looks, the stereo has a lot of power and is extremely user friendly. Unlike most receivers, to change the Bass and Treble you just click in the volume knob and spin to the left or right, where as on Pioneers, you have to go in menu after menu after menu. I am also driving 4 Kicker door speakers, a Kicker sub, 2 Pioneer Subs, and 2 amplifiers off of this stereo and the sound is incredible. I recommend this over any other stereo including a $200 Pioneer or Kenwood (mostly for power and ease of use). It is also really nice to have a built in tracking device and window stickers that are included, so if anyone steels it, relay the information to Eclipse and your set. The only con to this is that there are no instructions/installation manual included, so have it professionally installed, or make sure you have a wiring guide as well as the wiring harness for your car.

I had a problem with my amp in a Toyota Avalon and replaced a factory radio with this one and it has worked perfectly. Even with no exterior pre amp the unit power is perfect!

Not Bad.

September 23, 2009

This is a decent deck, not the best. But for the price you can't beat it, i would like something a little nicer but i needed a deck and didn't have much money at the time and i don't see a need to replace it because it does the job.

You get what you pay for

September 23, 2009

Had this deck for 8 months now. Picked it up new and it was discounted because SE had a lot of em with no instruction manual.

Pros: Great audio quality for the price-range. Pushes the stock speakers well. Looks clean; not like an amusement park in the middle of your car/truck.

Cons: After a few months the backlighting (parking/headlights on) started flashing. AUX in is faulty and shorts out portable music player.

The reason I purchased this was so I could hook up my flash mp3 player. I tried a different player and different rca interconnects and the problem persisted where the player would get shorted out after some static. It has to be the deck. Back to making mp3 discs...

The flashing backlighting doesn't affect me since I installed it in my work truck and I'm hardly out after the sun goes down. If it were in my personal I would disco the wire and fly the deck in the dark. Not cool.

Wouldn't recommend this deck to a friend, but it's been a good value after getting to grips with making mp3 cd's again

I'm an experienced DIY stereo guy for the record.

Cheers

This product was a breeze to install even without the instructions. Also the controlls are more intuitive than the factory radio in my Focus. You can get a factory manual download for Eclipse CD 3414 which is almost identical at the Eclipse web site from their tech dept.I've only owned the product for a month so can't comment on "durability".

Crazy bang for the buck

April 2, 2009

Swapped this deck in my Ford F-150 work truck as a cheap way to get digital quality (CD/Aux-In) output to the speakers. Features are basic. Deck looks very clean with no motorized face to worry about breaking. Buttons and knobs all have great feel for such an inexpensive deck.

I thought I was going to get some new speakers to go with this thing, but after hearing the stock speakers (no amp, hu power only) I'm going to have to pass. It sounds terrific. And even if it gets stolen or I get fired I'm only out a benjamin and some time to solder the harness.

Nothing but good things to say about Sonic Electronix.

I am very impressed with this stereo... especially for the cost. Right now, I am running it through stock speakers, but it sounds much better than the Aiwa that I replaced. Everything sounds great and it is pretty easy to use.
