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.

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.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
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.
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.
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.
3-Band parametric 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.
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.
80 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.

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
Display Adjustment
This refers to the many ways that a units display can be adjusted.

Decent Radio

June 3, 2010

I ordered and installed two of these radios and installed them in a clients two vehicles. Pros: Nice screen Good user interface Great ipod/iphone controls Detachable faceplate Good Bluetooth interface Powerful RCA pre-outs Plenty aux inputs The backlit buttons turn off when not in use, very nice and clean. The letters on the buttons are smoked when not in use or when the radio is off. The radio looks very clean at this point. Cons: Audio tuning options limited - 3 band parametric EQ, no time alignment and limited crossover Very slow at startup - CD player takes longer then usual to begin playing The proximity sensor is not as sensitive as I like No remote control Subwoofer mono output The trim is nice and glossy but it appears to be prone to scratches Overall, my client likes the radio and that's all that matters. There are some very nice cosmetic features, but being a SQ nut, its just not for me.

Full of features and priced very well

March 26, 2010

I guess I'm one of the first to get this unit as I pre ordered it back in February. I got it at a great price using the "offer" feature here at Sonic and for what it has, you can't get another brand or model at this price point. The Bluetooth so far leaves a little bit to be desired, but I'm still experimenting with the mic placement and settings which I think will fix the issues. Connection is seamless though and very easy to set up. This unit has 2 sets of 5v pre-outs and one single mono sub out which provide crisp, clear sound and also has dual zone control so that you can play a DVD for your rear seat passengers through the video out and still listen to your own music in the front. You can fine tune the sounds with a very nice and easy to use equalizer. No more limited Bass/Mid/High adjustments, this unit gives you individual adjustments from 60hz to 17.5khz. I have it hooked up with a Boyo rearview camera, Sirius radio adapter, Axxess steering wheel control integration and my Iphone and all of the transitions are seamless and smooth. DVD picture quality is pretty much the same as all the other double din units I've had. I wouldn't say it's better or worse as it's probably the same LCD from unit to unit. I've had Clarions, Eclipses and Alpines and they've all been about the same picture quality. If your looking for a double din with all the features and don't need GPS, this is the one to get. Just be aware that the RCA's are built into the back of the unit, they are NOT extended off the back with pig tail cables like some other units, so if this presents an install or fitment issue, keep that in mind. Overall this is 4.5 star head unit in a world of 3 star competition. It would be a 5 star unit aside from the RCA design and static in the BT mic, but those issues are so minor that they only dropped it 1/2 a star in my book. Try to find another unit with all the features that this offers and you'll be looking at double the price. No brainer for me, I love it so far!

Poor Quality

November 25, 2011

Pros: I like SonicElectronix; I think its a good online store. I like that the unit is detachable. Cons: Unit arrived with a bad subwoofer output; very low volume from the sub mono out regardless of subwoofer volume setting. iPod controls and menus stopped displaying on radio after about 3 months. Swapped iPod, but same problem.

JVC KW-AVX830

November 13, 2011

I bought this system for my F150 and it works great. Everything is easily accessable and the boost to my spaekers is real good. The only setback I have is the mic for the bluetooth. It's very low and no one can hear me.

For the price

September 21, 2011

For the price this deck is well worth the money. Installed in a 2001 Buick century. Had to do a lot of modification to dash to get it to fit. Features are well worth the money. USB is a little slow at reading. 7 band EQ makes for great audio output and the 5v pre-outs are a great feature for this price range. The Bluetooth mic is mediocre but does the job. Install it as close as possible to yourself.

Fantastic Unit

January 16, 2011

I bought this radio to replace the factory radio in my 2000 Buick Park Avenue. At first I had a lot of difficulty getting the unit to fit, even though the dimensions were exactly the same as the factory radio. I discovered that the adapter harness was causing the problem as it after assembly with the Buick adapter the wire bundle was wider than the available clearance (which was only 0.2" to begin with). I remedied this by using 18 gauge trailer 4 wire ribbon wire to extend the length of the adapter harness. 2 side by side and 2 tall was enough to fit neatly behind the unit and get it all the way in. Pros: Does everything I wanted it to do and more. Cons: Depth may make it difficult to fit in some vehicles. Doesn't come with remote.

To Tell You The Truth

December 31, 2010

Well the Unit isnt as good as it seems, I would definately suggest that if your looking at this head unit you might want to reconsider and i will tell you why. 1. its super slow! there are people on here that will tell you that this will load your USB, CDs, Ipod, Bluetooth Phone.. whatever really slowly, i mean apocalyptically slow. IDK what the programmers where thinking when they did it but wow. It happens when you change the track, when you start your car or randomly loose connection. 2. Ipod Touch is probably one of the best things invented and idk if anyone else is having this problem but the amount of Static that comes out of the speakers is soo loud when you connect it using bluetooth ud want to just throw it out. ...... It gets worse, i tried connecting it using the usb cable and the static went away only to come back every 2-5 seconds randomly, not on a specific tempo just randomly u hear clicks and scratches and yes ive tried numerous songs, restarted the itouch, re downloaded the songs on it, ive even tried buying itunes songs and trying it and it doesnt work at all, its quite rediculous. 3. I really have to say.... go with clarion, go with pioneer, go with kenwood or even Sony!! But please save your money and stay away from this its just complete rubbish. your better off buying 400 bucks worth of Q-Tips

Noise issues

October 22, 2010

This unit appears to be OK. The proximity switch works about 50% of the time but that is not really a big deal. The big problem is that when listening to the satellite radio I get a lot of alternator noise. The tuner has been replaced twice and still not solved. I should have purchased another Pioneer.

Great Buy

October 16, 2010

This is an outstanding unit for the price. Only had one problem with a fuse internally but the manufacturer, JVC, fixed it and shipped it back. Great unit and fits well in my ford f150 07.

Great Unit

August 31, 2010

This is a great product, and it sounds really good. It could be better in some respects though. The menu system for controlling an iPod is slow and cumbersome. You always have to start at the beginning. For example, if you are listening to a jazz album, and want to listen to other one, it takes you to the root menu instead of leaving you where you were as it would happen in the iPod front Panel. Also, the bluetooth microphone is useless. No one understands you! But that's the case with 99.5% of them, so I will not hold it against the unit. One last thing: Although I understand it have one of the best built in EQs, as I'm pretty picky about equalization I would like to be able to alter each frequency band, not just one in each group (3 total). Overall is a great unit though. If I ever replace it, I will probably look into JVC again.
