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.
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.
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.
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.
Custom and preset EQ
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
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

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.

April 25, 2012

This was my first Farenheit the player is loaded with tons of extra hookups & aux. I mainly bought the unit for bluetooth so me and the wife could go hands free. Surprisely it works very well! It has a mic on the head unit and a external mic that you can hook to the head unit to run closer to you but we did not use the externel mic because the mic on the head unit is very very sensative i mean you can here a pin drop in the vehicle. But sadly after having the unit two or three months it started to reset it self all the time what I mean is it would loose all its memory you had set in. So I liked the unit so well that I returned it for another unit. This really isn't a bad unit for the price I am going to finish my review in the second unit coming. Sonic Electronix stands by their warranty. I had no problem returning the unit and getting another.

Farenheit TID897NRB

October 11, 2011

I would definately recommend this radio. I did my homework b4 i installed it. If u take your time and read the instruction manual, u should have no problems out of this radio. I mean read!! SECURITY FEATURES: Partial Faceplate removal and a bracket to bolt the radio in. I have had a radio stolen it wasnt bolted in like i did this 1. So easy to use my girlfriend dumped me for the radio...lol no really, she likes the radio so much she wants it to replace her jensen flip up screen radio. NOISE: Quiet unless screen is flipping up or going in. SCREEN: everything looks good, digital TV looks analog at times. SOUND: if u have your woofers, speakers etc hooked up properly, the surround sound is on point. Has options for the subwoofers my other expensive radio's didnt. COMPLAINTS: So many options equal so many wires so the radio wants to shoot out at me when i press the release clips to slide it out from the dash. It is installed in a 2002 Yukon XL so I have to pull the gear shifter forward when the screen comes out, and when its about to go in. I can then let the shifter go once the screen is all the way out or in. OVERALL: Cheaper than my GF's Jensen and I really am glad i chose this radio. Also more features than her jenson. LOOKS : Sleak. Havent tried navigation yet. Partial plate, is flimsy, i am afraid i may break it 1 day.

June 1, 2011

If your broke then this is the head unit for you. Which is why I bought it. After buying it I saw why it was so cheap. There is a huge lack of controls. Bass controls are minimal, screen picture is lacking. Very loud opening and closing the screen. Overall I'd buy it if I needed it and was broke other than that keep looking.

Had unit for almost a year now...revised review

February 9, 2011

I've had the Farenheit TID-897NRB for about a year now..this is a very honest review so please read Screen Quality : 7/10 the matt finish on the screen is a bit much as im sure they made it this way to avoid glare. Most videos look pretty good but lack crispness, and color depth Ease Of Use : 4/10...the menu system on the player is very clunky and not well thought out. To get where you want, sometimes you have to navigate thru 5 other screen to get where you want. the manual is pretty bad, and you pretty much have to teach yourself through trial and error. Sound: everything sounds great except the bluetooth. I have a droid so i know its not my phone but thru bluetooth you lose all sound quality and about 50% of the volume...Its really only good for taking calls, and even then its hard to hear the person unless u crank it up. Remote: 1/10 there are 100 buttons, the manual doesn't explain what 95% of them do. Touchscreen: 4/10 the touchscreen works well, but i played most of my music off my sd card...Problem is, to navigate thru the card you cant use the touchscreen,,you have to use the arrow buttons on the remote..very dangerous. Once your into an album, you can then use the touchscreen to go forward and back thru songs but you are stuck in that folder/album untill you press stop with the remote, find the album you want, then press play on the remote. If you were to lose your remote, you pretty much could not use this unit Other: when you go to the next track on the sd card, the sound studders once, then starts, and you have to press the button twice to go forward or back songs. I notice that many times the unit would not power on till i pressed the reset button...then I had reset all my settings every time. This for some reason got better over time, but once and a while, i still have to reset the whole unit to get it to turn on When you shut your car off, the unit automatically closes every time.,you have no option to turn this on or off You should be able to display an album cover with each album folder while it plays,,The best you can do is display your screen saver, which never changes unless you do it manually, and once your screen saver comes up, you cant navigate thru your music without the remote. Overall the unit is good for the money, but it has many annoying quirks that you will just have to look past. i personally feel that 240$ is still alot of money, and you shouldnt have to "settle" for that.

The pros of this unit: The picture quality is great, and the touch screen is convenient to use. The cons: My remote quit about 4 months after buying it, the interface with the i pod is terrible. it does not allow anything other than a shuffle. the unit also seems to get to hot, too hot to touch if it is running while closed. I would recommend purchasing the warranty or saving for a higher end unit.

Installation was a breeze. The large screened navigation visibility is excellent for my wife who is constantly on the road. She loved it at first, but has complained about the screen not retracting upon turning off the ignition. She also complained about the CD delaying up to 45 seconds during play. My wife stated that when she tries to listen to the radio that static is too much that she ops to turn it off. She loves the ease in setting the navigation along with the preciseness in getting her to her desired location. She has mentioned that she wished that the USB hub was a direct connect rather than an attachment. We are considering replacing the unit.

good piece of hardware here!

August 30, 2010

This deck is a great, great buy for the money. Here is what I love, it is vastly expandable with its sd input, usb input, aux input, camera input, front, rear and sub rca's, navi input if i WANT TO ADD later. the bluetooth picked up my droid really fast so I can dial from the headunit, look at recent recieved, outgoing, missed calls and look through my phonebook. the unit also has a auto answer on/off button for bluetooth. the music is controllable via the dash and I stream pandora from my phone to the deck. the bluetooth also had a graphic eq that dances with the music, just a basic one....but it is a nice touch because you usually don't get graphic interfaces at this price level. I like the wallpaper slides that turn on, once again this is always nice especially when you just like looking at your deck. the deck was very straightforward to use and install and has a nice piano finish on the outside. another note, the touchscreen is really responsive, its not very laggy at all like it expected it to be. more responsive than the valor units in my opinion. overall, very happy especially at this price point. and from what people have told me, they hear me very well through the supplied mic for the bluetooth calling.

MUCH better quality than I could ever guessed...

March 23, 2010

Don't know what the other dude is doing wrong but mine works FLAWLESSLY...When I got my unit I wasn't exactly expecting a very high quality unit, but boy was I wrong..This thing is built like a brick.... very heavy and very sturdy parts... everything is solid, and shows excellent craftsmanship. The menu system is a bit ugly but everything is easy to find and easy to operate. Surprisingly, the blue-tooth detected my phone and worked right away, with no problems. The best way to play movies and music is right off the SD card... songs and vids load the quickest this way... Looking for a great , solid unit for under 300$... This is it... SD card support and it plays DIVX files.... WOW... PLUS, i didn't even have to do the toggle switch mod to get it to play while driving... mine worked out of the box..hahah..

Bottom line here... you get what you pay for. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes it shows my background pics, sometimes it completely erases some of them. For the price, I suppose you should expect some problems, and this unit has some. Save your money for a top of the line model.
