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
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.
Yes
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.
20 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.
1 Center Output
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Mono-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.
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.
7-Band iEQ
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.

TFT-LCD Monitor
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.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Variable Button Color
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.
95 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.

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.

1 Set of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
1 Set of Rear Audio RCA Inputs

Monitor Screen Features

Touchscreen
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
Yes
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.
Monitor Angle Adjustment

Backward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt backwards so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, this type of pivot means that the bottom of the screen stays stationary while the top of the screen retracts. On Double DIN units this means that the bottom of the screen slides forward while the top of the screen moves down, resulting in a backwards angle tilt.

Forward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt forward so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, a forward pivot keeps the bottom of the screen stationary while the top of the screen moves forward. On select Double DIN units, a forward tilt is sometimes referred to as a reverse tilt. The bottom of the screen remains in the same position while the top of the screen moves forward.

Left/Right Angle (Horizontal):
Some monitors allow the display to be rotated to the left or right in order to have the best viewing angle possible.

Slide In/Out:
A feature mainly found in select Kenwood units. It allows the entire screen to slide in and out. This is different from a forward/backward tilt in that the entire screen moves forward or backwards as opposed to just the top or bottom.

Backward
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.

Expandability Features

Navigation
Built-in navigation is a convenient feature that allows the driver to receive driving directions and guidance.

Some in-dash head units are built-in with the navigation features, while others require an add on navigation box. Other navigation options include portable navigation units that you can take with you or attach to the dash of your vehicle.

No
Compatible Smartphones
Some stereos work with iOS (Apple) or Android smartphone operating systems, while some stereos work with both or neither. Find out here which operating systems this stereo is compatible with.
Audio/Video Outputs
Audio/Video outputs are typically used to connect an overhead monitor to an aftermarket stereo. This is the number of A/V outputs that the item has. These outputs are usually RCA Composite cables.

RCA Composite Outputs
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.

1 Video RCA Output
Satellite Radio
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.

HD Radio
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver is capable of receiving high-definition digital HD Radio broadcasts by either a built-in HD Radio tuner, or more commonly with the purchase of an optional HD Radio tuner box. Receivers which are HD Radio Ready generally require an additional purchase of a separate tuner.
Optional
Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature refers to whether or not the head unit is able to connect to a hands-free Bluetooth device. Head units that are Bluetooth ready typically require the purchase of an optional adapter or accessory that connects to the rear of the head unit.

A Must Have!

September 20, 2010

The {JVC KD-AVX77} a.k.a The Kameleon is a phenomenal Single Din head unit. With Features like Built In Blue-tooth, Ipod Control, and USB capability, not to forget Clear Fm/Am radio as well as DVD/Cd capabilities. I give it an A on features. Value: When i bought this from this site it was priced at $464.99. Now its up to $599. Its worth it.I give it a C on Value. Durability: Ive had this product for 6 months and not a single scratch or dent. id advise wrapping it in a small cloth before placing it in the case it comes with. A+ for durability. Look/Design: Not eye candy which is a major plus to minimize theft. I would recommended removing it seeing how much you spent on cost. Its touch screen single Din what gets better than that?? A+ on Design! Ease of use: Takes time to get everything down. I'm not one to read manuals, I'm a guy, we are born to build and fix things (Sometimes) without books. But i do admit you well have to refer to it to get to know everything. B on ease of use *My Dislikes* iPOD Connections DO NOT COME with the head unit, Must BUY Separate. along with Satellite radio and HD radio. I didn't know this till last minute! it also doesn't charge your iPhone. Overall: this product turns heads when your showing off to friends and family. I had Best Buy install this and they hadn't seen anything like this before. Take my word for it. you gotta buy this you wont be disappointed!

Great unit, bought for my 05 ram quad cab, has great picture and sound, the surround sound on videos is amazing if you have a good system. Great stereo, read your manual, it's kind of confusing at first to find all of the functions. Blue tooth and pandora work great also. Great unit for the price

What others havent mentioned...

January 9, 2013

When I purchased my car it had a pretty cool head unit, but when i removed the faceplace to get the product details the unit started acting wonkey and has been getting worse over the last 6 months. My back up camera now results in a black screen. Not to mention the volume only goes up to 30 and it doesnt have automatic volume adjustment so i am constantly changing the volume. I also have issues with it playing music from my iPod nano. So I decided to come here to see what was better. I've decided that this head unit might be an upgrade and I havent found anything remotely as great. Now heres the funny part, the unit I'm looking to replace is the KD-AVX77! I'm pretty convienced that the issue is either from damage to the unit or a wiring problem on the back end. Until I find out otherwise, my only 2 complaints are the lack of auto adjusting volume and my iPod issue. One cool feature not mentioned is the proximity sensor. My car is orange with black accents, so i use the black screen with the orange ring & time display. when something gets within an inch of the display it shows full controls. the screen requires no force what so ever. a light touch will cause the unit to react, however it may take a second before doing so. some folks detect this as a lack of recognition and press harder. this usually isnt necessary, but the unit seems durable enough to handle the abuse on a regular basis. For the average guy, i'd say read the manual, however until today i've never seen the manual and with enough fiddling, you'll figure everything out. I strongly dislike badging on electronics. I mean if you spend a few hundred or even thousand dollars on something, you are going to remember what brand it is, it doesnt need to be stamped on the face, that little round hole, thats an aux jack, i dont need it labeled, i'm not going to forget. So another strong point, there is no badging or script on the faceplate at all unless you remove the faceplate and check the top (hidden) edge. overall its great. could use some higher resolution graphics, but these are good. Value gets docked a bit as it is far from a budget unit design it wins plenty of points for the lack of badging duribility this thing takes a licking features the only thing it doesnt do is play blue ray ease of use you can figure out all the important stuff in 15 min

Got exactly what I expected

November 4, 2011

That car audio/video system is all you need. I own a very small car (Smart ForTwo) and the space allowed to install the radio equipment is rather compact. This product offer tons of features and deliver very good sound quality. Bluetooth connection with my Samsung Galaxy Vibrant S was real easy, the MP3 music on my phone can be played directly on the radio without the use of a cable, dvd are played without problem. I know lots of people feel that the display is too small, but for me, since my car is so small, it is a perfect fit. In order to deliver proper sound quality, I used a pair of Infinity 6810cs Reference series component system as the front speakers, and I added up a pair of JBL P953 for rear speakers. The result is a clear natural sound. I used the included sound equalizer to boost the low and real high frequency to suit my aging hearing capacity.

One of the best head-units I have bought in years

September 22, 2011

I own one and I have used it for other peoples builds too. You can't go wrong with this bad boy. I've had mine for about six months and I have never had an issues at all. DVD picture is really good on it and for the price you pay with all the opposition you get, you really can't beat it.

Best 1 DIN / One iPhone glitch

June 13, 2010

Didn't want to make any changes to the bezel on my 2004 Vette so I searched the web for the best 1 DIN I could find. It didn't disappoint. Cool points are: watchin movies , expandability , clear bluetooth, electronically tilting deck, and all of the audio/video options are amazing. Low points: Every time I connect my iPhone to the USB it disconnects after 5 seconds and then I have to reconnect and then everything is fine from there on. Strange. It would be nice to see a touchscreen that is similar to the iPhone that doesn't require any pressure(I'm sure this will be in a few yrs. Sonicelectronix had a few problems with a couple of my orders but the customer service and assistance, along with the internet's most user friendly website, will make me shop with sonicelectronix for many more times. Great website!

Epic single DIN

March 9, 2010

This is one of the best single DIN Head Units (and beats many Double DIN) I've ever installed or owned, this is a must have for any mobile audio system. This thing has every bell and whistle or options you might need and if its not on here you don't need it lol JK Navigation would have been nice. The screen is just superb for its form factor (glare can be an issue with direct sunlight for convertibles). The Bluetooth works phenomenal with both my Blackberry and HTC Hero (AT THE SAME TIME!), unit has the ability to pair with two separate devices simultaneously. A prime example is having my Blackberry stream Pandora and having the head unit switch to incoming calls on my HTC Hero. The iPod functionality with JVC KS-U30 connection (sold separately) is every iPod lovers dream, there's a delay right after a new song is played that prevents you from skipping to next/previous song but with the search capability this should be thrown out as an actual concern. The only thing that disappoints me besides the helpfulness of JVC is the Wallpaper capture feature which is used to set up the custom wallpapers. It only has two modes normal and zoon (witch is pathetic for such an advance head unit) first the zoom pixelates everything which makes it completely useless and when using the normal mode is scales down the image and doesn't come close to filling the screen even when capturing from a DVD play back. I've tried every possible resolution from 800x240 to 2560x2048 and 72,000 PPI 576,000 PPI all file sizes from 140KB to 1MB.

Amazing Japanese Technology!

November 17, 2009

After hearing so much hooha on the internet and in car audio magazines, I bought an Eclipse 7200 and within a week, it went blank on me. It just wouldn't turn on. Being in India, I decided to put it aside. I decided to buy the JVC KD-AVX77. It is amazing all the way. Never a problem, futuristic touch panel. Quick processor, vibrant colours, absolutely stunning. I would recommend anyone who is looking for an incredible headunit that never lets you down, this is the one!!
