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.
No
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.

52 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.
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.
4 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.
EQ3 Stage 2 (3-band parametric equalizer with 7 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.

Fluorescent Display
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.

Blue
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue, Green, and Red
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.
120 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

THE REAL REVIEW

May 2, 2011

I got this and could not be more pleased with it. pros. I have Kenwood rear speakers which are great and put out some hella bass with my Sonic 6x9 ported boxes I got from here and this allows me to put the highs up front and keep everything in the back how amazing is that I have a stock front from my Saturn 95 with any bass they slap against the magnet and sound horrible but hits head unit let me put just the highs up there how great with the equalizer you can change the hertz that it increases and the range and the decibels how amazing is that overall a great buy DEF WORTH THE MONEY cons. Mine died after a month but Sonic is so amazing that im shipping it back to them and they are either going to repair it or buy me a new one and when i called them i only had to wait for a minute! quick response and everything GO SONICELECTRONIX! overall. ...........BUY IT!

Good Hardware, bad interface

September 26, 2013

First let me say this is a great Head Unit and it gets its job done. That being said, if I could do it over I wouldn't buy this or anything in its family. The interface is not so friendly, I don't mind too much as I usually just use the AUX but for the times I need to use the radio features that should be simple took me a bit to figure out. (I know I could read the manual or something but let's be real.) You have to hold a button to scroll stations individually, as the normal mode is "SEEK" where it searches and skips 10 stations if they aren't perfect. the problem is once you are done selecting stations next time you go to use it it switches back to the "SEEK" feature. Other minor issues but that was the most annoying, if you can don't mind that then get this unit without another thought.

Great stero tunes of features

January 16, 2013

I have had this stereo for about a year and half now and no problems. This head unit has tons of features and is built well. The only problem is the button layout, especially the next and previous buttons since they aren't raised.

my son loves it

December 27, 2011

My son has this in his 4runner, he uses it for his iphone and it works great. Sonic is the best place I have ever bought from. If you have a problem call them they answer the phone with a person that speaks english and knows what they're talking about. They beat b*stb*y in price and free shipping and I got it in 2 days what more can I say. I wil never buy from anyone else. I have ordered 6 times and always been happy. The Sony went in in 15min with the free install kit Sonic threw in for the same price.

Great head unit

December 7, 2011

Overall this is a great head unit. It sounds great, the interface is easy to use and it has plenty of options. The remote control is a nice touch, but it's a little crowded. The only real complaint I have is that the red / green LED modes are too dim. If you buy this, only expect to have the lights set to blue. Other than that, it's a great product and a great value.

I have always been an Alpine fan, being on a budget, I stumbled across this head unit and am glad I did. It has all of the options the Alpine had, plus more. It is very user friendly and pretty much does everything for you. The sound quality is very impressive, and just as good as an Alpine.

This thing is awesome, I have had it for a couple months now and it works great. I got it professionally installed. It has so many options and controls (even customization options like what color buttons). The sound quality was greatly improved and it sounds great with my subs. Bottom line, its a lot of bang for your buck.

AMAZING PRODUCT!!

October 6, 2011

This HU was my first upgrade to audio in my Honda accord! ( first car) i am 17 years old and to install this radio is REALLY easy! I like how the HU has 3 sets of RCA outputs! Front rear and subs! First I just had my subs hooked up to the sub connection! It's really good response! The headunit is mainly a 5/5 rating! It performs great! And the 3 colors illuminations! BLAST IN A GLASS! The USB is what I mainly use! And it is 100% great. No complains unless you have a poopy iPod cable, It will mess up the function. The CD player is also awesome! And all the audio settings are the best! This is a great first headunit I would recommend to anyone and everyone for a first!!

This HU is amazing. The installation was easy. It makes the music sound way nicer then the factory HU. I have some kicker speakers hooked up to this and they sound so crisp compared to the factory HU. Everything with this stereo is nice. The zappin feature is sweet and the display looks pretty neat. Plus sonics shipping was quick and reliable. Im def recommending Sonic to everyone that I know who wants to get anything for their car audio.
