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.

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.

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 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.
Equalizer with 4 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
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.
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
1 Rear RCA Video Input

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
Forward

AWESOME PURCHASE

May 24, 2011

I would really recommend this product because it has better feature than the known name brands. For example, the bluetooth feature works awesome with any phone that has bluetooth. The navigation works perfect. The other thing I liked was I was able to play with my game system with the extra connections it came with. I would purchase this item for another vehicle in the future.

i was mistaken!!!

March 4, 2013

Ive had this product now for nine months and the screen just died on me! Wont turn on any more, on top of that the unit went into password lock which i had put in when i installed the unit. Thing is that if the screen dont light up you cant put in your password and you cant put it in through the remote either! Before the screen died i gotta admit this unit worked FINE!!! it seems to me that as the unit get older it has to start going somehow??? The screen dose take a few to warm up before it gets bright.

Good Enough.

January 17, 2013

I've owned this product in the past and though it gave me some problems I still bought a second one, but this time with GPS on it. It is a nice stereo with lots of sound. It has great power to power up the speakers without an additional amp. It will work excellent for a couple of months and then you'll start noticing that it may not respond to some comands at first. It does that tupically in the mornings, but once it's warmed up it will work just fine. Thats only it yours comes out defective like mine. Yours may not. It's a good product for all the features that offers and for the price. I owened my previous one (same brand) for over 5 years until the stole it. If you want a stereo that has it all including external bluetooth mic and dont wanna spend much. Dual is the way to go.

Good product!

January 5, 2013

This ended up being a good product for me! The head unit was installed professionaly by myself meaning i did not crimp the wires, But insted ive Solderd the wires. The gps is outstanding if you ask me!!! got me out of some sticky situations! dvd works great sound is good bluetooth is ok but there is some distinct background noise coming from my sub. but i figured it just might be my iphone, I gotta give it up to the customer service reps at sonic tho they have KNOWLEDGE when it comes to answering questions. The only thing i didnt like about this head unit is that you cant play movies on a memory card or even a flash drive, but its a good product and i do recommend it!!!

I don't understand why people are having such bad luck with it. I love it does everything I need it to and no problems at all. The touch screen is sensitive, the external mic works like a charm. I don't use the ipod plugs that came with it like someone else said its to heavy for the faceplate. Just go buy a 3.5mm line with two male ends and you'll be fine, you'll just have to use your ipod/iphone to change the song which isn't a big deal. I love the navigation works very well, and is quick so idk why other people have a problem with it. The only thing I don't like is that the navi maps are a little out of date but thats not a big deal. I'll throw $60 to update them.

It's an ok radio. Bluetooth doesn't work that well. Everyone I talk to said I sound all distorted and they can't hear me at all really. gps is slow and takes forever to load. I use my iPhone gps instead now. The only thing I like about it is that I can play my iPod now in my car.

2 Years and 2 Problems

January 18, 2012

I would recommend this product for it's overall performance. It really is an easy to use and nice gadget to have, BUT!!! The durability of this product is on the low side. Within a month after the installation the faceplate malfunctioned. It was replaced for free. The new faceplate worked ok, but the skip song buttons sometimes had to be pressed 8 times before anything happened. The iPod connection was never all that great because of the faceplate malfunctioning. Now it is another year later and the slide out screen would come a quarter of the way out and then go back in. I tried resetting the radio and it still happened. It got to the point to where I got so upset and eventually just manually pulled the screen out, but the screen didn't come on. Then eventually the gear to flip the screen up broke altogether. If you buy this product just please beware of all the little glitches that you may encounter. It is better off just to buy a separate radio and separate navigation device.

Great radio

This is a great radio, worked as specified. Sounds great by itself with enough power to my factory speakers.

I am not to sure how to update the maps. It is missing a lot of roads. The girl who speaks doesn't actually say the words its just an electronic stutter. Other than that it is GREAT!

Good Product

May 22, 2011

Installed this on a 2005 Hyundai Tiburon GT on 12/20/10 and has been working fine so far. If you are buying this because of the bluetooth, do not buy it. The bluetooth is too noisy even with the external microphone, the caller has to yell on to the microphone for the person listening to semi-understand what was said. However, the GPS has been working fine and the sound is not bad for the price. This unit has good features, but the bluetooth is not one of them.

An OK deal for the price!

May 5, 2011

This is a pretty nice looking radio, I bought it a little over a year ago at Walmart, it was very useful to me until the NAV, SD reader stopped working, and the flip out screen sometimes won't come out. Since it has been over a year and because I didn't buy the warranty is not worth fixing it. I will never buy a DUAL product again!

Would be great if....

December 5, 2010

This unit would work great if it did not have a detachable front faceplate. Mine gets used 95% of the time for iPod use and with the wire hanging off the front it puts too much weight and looses connection/ performs random button presses/ and cuts out one of the channels but once you give the faceplate a little wiggle all is good for a little bit again. When it works it works great and is very feature packed but this downfall makes me regret the purchase.
