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.
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.

85 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 6 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.

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.
Blue
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.
55 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

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.
Front
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
Front 3.5mm

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.

None

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.

2 Video RCA Outputs
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.
No
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.
No
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. This optional accessory allows you to accept phone calls through your head unit and speakers. Some head units have built-in Bluetooth hands free capabilities with an included remote-mount microphone or built-in microphone.
Yes (Built-in/Included Bluetooth Controls, Adapter and Microphone Included)
Steering Wheel Control Compatible
In order to retain a vehicle's factory steering wheel remote controls, a wired-remote input is needed on the aftermarket stereo.

If "Yes", then the aftermarket stereo is compatible with steering wheel remote controls. If an additional accessory is required for the steering wheel controls to work properly, a compatible piece will be listed.

Universal (Accessory required and sold separately)

Nice Deck!

August 31, 2011

Incredible deck for a fraction of the price of other big name audio manufacturers. Lots of options and cool display with beautiful video quality. Unfortunately I bought it for my 2003 Buick LeSabre but the radio compartment in this vehicle is very short and the deck was a bit too long to fit with out modifying the dash. So into my friends 1995 Caprice we installed it.

Great Value but at a Cost

April 20, 2010

Pros: ====== - Great Price for features - The way it automatically brings the screen down to eject/accept CD/DVD's looks really slick and expensive - Bluetooth works great with iPhone - Looks great, has a 7" screen, but remember this deck is OVER Double Din in size (it sticks out of my Honda Accord by 1-2 inches) Cons: ====== - Corny GUI, but most cheap decks have this issue, looks so slick until its actually powered-on... - Has issues with touch-screen scrolling through songs, etc - The USB playback and other features have issues playing back when not in park (this is the video playback security kicking in), but why does it beef with playing audio off a USB, lack of good coding. - Almost impossible to see it clearly on a sunny day, so get your windows tinted or find a deck without an LCD - Remote is stupidly laid out and every button looks exactly the same, but that is expected by this price range for features Overall: - Buy it if your windows are tinted and your on a budget - Bluetooth phone calling/receiving by the deck itself is impressive, the sound quality is good with the built-in mic, avoid tickets - You will not get flawless or top-of-the-line performance out of this, it also doesn't sound the greatest, but its OK - I would not buy this again though because it is frustrating to use, I'd cough up some more dough for something better.

nice head unit

September 22, 2012

I recommend this product. This head unit does have a sub out and I can watch movies on the go as well. I installed it. I have some crescendo 8" in my doors amplified and kicker cvr 12" for subs. My music sounds awesome!! Price is pretty good as well. May not be as good as a pioneer but it does the job.

Don't Waste Your Money!

September 23, 2011

Double Din is oversized so it sits about 1-1/2 to 2 inches outside of the dash. The interface looks EXTREMELY cheap. To sum it up it looks terrible! However, the appearance is not nearly as bad as the sound quality. The unit has no sub output so all bass must go through door speakers only and the acoustics go to the back. In other words...the door panel shakes so much you literally think its going to fall off! Base going into speakers instead of subs sounds pretty nasty. There is a reason this is listed for so cheap.

Could be better

April 3, 2011

I paid no attention to the reviews I read on this unit. Big mistake on my part! The only option to darken the display for night driving is to mute the display, then you don't have access to any features except the volume buttons. The volume control is very erratic, and the sound quality is very poor. When playing a cd, the Boss logo screen is extremely bright and distracting. Save a little longer and buy a better unit!!!!

Pretty good

March 25, 2011

I self installed this unit in a 2002 Ford F-150. The installation was challenging but, not impossible. I connected the Park/Neutral safety wire to ground so I can "listen" to DVDs while driving. The DOS looking GUI is near hideous and cheesy looking and, I wish that it would simply display the time when not in use or listening to music/radio. I just got a cheap stick on clock for the dashboard. The included installation bezel/mounting kit didn't work for me but the wiring harness connector made wiring a breeze. Once installed the unit worked pretty good. The Bluetooth function performs better than expected. Prepare yourself to memorize the button positions on the remote control because it's impossible to see in the dark. Now then, this is important. During setup I encountered a screen asking me for a password. It's to turn on and off functions and change euro/us functions. I couldn't find the password anywhere and Boss tech support is nonexistent. Just by dumb luck I typed in all 8's (8 is a lucky number in China) and damn if it didn't unlock the setup screen. I have since bought a back up camera and I burn DVDs with music and video. An iPod or thumb drive work fine with the USB. If you are expecting something with all of the high end bells and whistles then, spend the money. For under $250, this thing really delivers.

January 19, 2011

The Boss BV9560B has blue tooth with works well, i like that a lot. The down fall is it makes a lot of interference which gives off a squeaking noise but when you turn the screen off its better. I didn't like that there was no dimmer on it. it is hard to see at night, but it does let you turn the screen off by holding the mute button in.

Oh man, what a mistake!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

December 31, 2010

I looked for a DVD player for my 2002 IS300 for about two months, reading reviews and doing research trying to find the most bang for my buck. I finally decided that I would go against my better judgement and chose to go with this product. It has a lot of options for the price, but it is a colossal piece of JUNK!! First of all the screen is blindingly brite and has no dimmer, half of the display lights stopped working about five minutes into first use, the volume down button quit working on day 3, the screen color cuts in and out, if you barely even bump the USB cord the whole unit shuts off, the left speakers cut in and out when you turn left, when using the aux input it leaves you with a crazy brite blue screen, the radio reception is horrible and there's engine noise through the speakers every now and then. I had it installed by a professional so I know it wasn't the installation that caused these problems. Also, after two months of this nonsense I have removed the unit and put my factory stereo back in and the problems stopped, so it can't be the car. In short, spend the extra $80 or so and get a Sony, Alpine, Kenwood, Clarion or Pioneer!! Do yourself a favor and stay away from this product as tempting as all the options are at the cheap price!!

do yourself a favor

April 26, 2010

Do yourself a favor.... fork up some money for a better unit. Sound isn't that great, the screen is extra bright which is nice, until you're driving at night and your whole vehicle is lit up and you're blinded by the screen. My buddy has a pioneer premier that BLOWS this thing out of the water with his stock speakers and isn't much of a price difference. Also this thing is near impossible to mount. I had to modify my dash to get this stupid thing in and it sticks out about a inch and looks like crap. Call the tech support and get their advice, they are the greatest and will help you get what you really need.

February 8, 2010

I love the program for this system. It get's a little glitchy just when switching from the menu to loading a DVD but it's only a split second. Love the look, Love the colors, Love the screen. 9/10
