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.

Security Code
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.

40 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.
13 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.
3 Band EQ with 11 Presets
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.
White
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.
95 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

Fantastic double din touch screen deck

October 29, 2010

I bought this unit based on other reviews and the features of the unit. And it was better than expected! I was hesitant that it was a Jensen, but no longer. Install - easier than expected Sound - Very good, the unit has a lot of options in equalization. I wanted the 3 sets of outputs. I did find that the unit is not tolerant of high compression MP3s. Some of my oldest MP3 recording were at highest compression and low fidelity. (memory wasn't cheap 10 yrs ago) I re-ripped them and they sound great. Controls/Screen, I searched out units with a rotary volume, but with large screen. This unit is great on both- an the screen only slightly washed out in full sunlight from sunroof. Inputs- it taked USB, SD card, DVD or CD for music. All work fine. Nice to have those options, more expensive units don't always have those opttions. DVD - plays movies better than expected, easy to jump forward, loads fast. NAV- for the price you can't beat it. My Magellan is slighlty better or intuiative, but when you get use to this one, entry flows well. It does include 11 million POCs and was impressed. When you have Nav and stereo on, the music mutes down and the Nav voice comes on with nice fading. You can upgrade the NAV info in future years for $99, but the '09 data is fine. Blue tooth/camera- haven't played with these yet. I would highly recommend - friends that have seen and listened can't believe the price and brand. They love the screen. For 1/2 the price of Kenwood you get 90% of satisfaction/features. My favorite feature is the ease I have scrolling the MP3 songs, very easy and the titles are easy to use with large font sizes.

Fantastic Features

June 1, 2011

Yea, I was skeptical about Jensen/Audiovox. But after being in the car dealership service business for the last 20 years, I know how one manufacturer likes to blanket the market with 6 different brand names. Gone are the days of "quality" brands. Yea you, high-end big-name brand. I've had my guys replace tooooo many of those fancy head units. So here is this lowly $400 Jensen with all these features--plus GPS!!!!! I have been truly amazed for about 5 months now. Its in my wife's Sequoia and she is ga-ga over this thing. I like to jam on the radio/cd while driving while the screen is on back-up camera! Too cool. Has a big Speedo Display using GPS, plays DVD's, lots of user options, too. Just works well. SOLID feeling volume knob with micro-clicks. Feels good, no slop. Excellent touch-screen. Large screen not blocked on each side with seldom used buttons. Plug in the iPhone and it picks up all the info. Playlists, artists, songs, etc. on it's own!! I havent even bought the $20 iPod cable yet. Probably won't. I also purchased the Rockford Fosgate 10" amplified sub.(ready to go unit). Sweet Jesus this thing shakes the hell out of everything! I can only imagine the 12" version! Blew me away. Forget what you thought you knew about subwoofers. Apparently, technology has improved greatly while I've been away raising kids. This thing pumps out chest-pounding bass like my two 12's back in 1991. TOTAL SATISFACTION

GREAT FOR THE MONEY

March 14, 2012

Hi all! My review is gonna be kinda long because I just wanna cover everything and point out some great features if possible. I came across this unit when I was looking for a Two-way alarm system on Sonic. And when I saw the price of $379.99 on this Fully-loaded unit, there were 2 things in my mind. One, this gotta be a joke or someone in the sale department was really messed up tagging the price. And two and most likely true, this is a sh***y system and I never heard of Jensen before. So I went ahead and check it out to see if this a good unit. I read through the Specs and Features of this unit pretty careful, twice. And this unit does it all. It has every options you can ask for a car head unit. NAV, BLUETOOTH, XM, IPOD HOOKUP, USB Port, SD Card Reader, 5.1 RCA Outputs, Rear View Camera Hookup, Rear Seats Video Outputs and much more...This is more than I could ask for as a head unit. That's why I really concerned about the quality and durability of this unit so I read more than 20 reviews. And suprisingly, 12 out of the first 20 had All 5-stars and the rest had like 4-stars and up. So without any doubt, I bought 2 of these, one for my car and the other for my girlfriend's. Got these 3 days late...I have to say that Sonic did a super job on packing. The unit came sealed and not even a little dirt on the unit box. I opened the unit's box and started checking on the unit itself and all the included accessories. Not thing missing on both unit, that's a start. All accessories were sealed with tape and fresh. The first thing I always do with these electronics is read the Manual or Installation Guide. This unit came with both, so I saved some time by going through the Installation Guide only. If I get into any trouble I will then search it in the Manual. The guide was pretty straight forward. After spending some time reading the guide, I felt very confident installing it myself because Best Buy Geek Squad will damage it or my car anyways. So why not install it myself, I can save some money and learn a lot of things messing up my own car, LOL. So I connected the head unit harness with the harness designed to plug and play on my car audio system. Sonic included the specific harness and dash kit for your car for FREE, that's a breeze. After connecting all the required wires together, I was pretty much ready to install this unit. Popped the hood, disconnected the Positive Terminal....and Negative Terminal to make sure that there's absolutely no short circuit. I went ahead and remove my car dash and factory head unit. Unfortunately, the free dash kit that Sonic included for my car was not used because I want the head unit door in my car able to close. I drive 2005 Scion tC by the way. So I modified the factory mounting kit to make the dash door be able to close completely with this new unit. All the instructions on how to connect wires and install mounting kit are included with the free dash kit and harness. After an hour, everything was in places and ready to run the first try. FAIL. The unit powered on but only showed a white screen. 2nd try, same thing. 3rd try, nothing different. So I called Sonic Tech Support, where the Tech guy was very patient with me, and that's why I love shopping at Sonic. He spent like almost half an hour to help me fixing some bad wiring. I tell you what, that was the longest time a business representative been on the phone with me. Very impressive. So he figured out that i got some bad Ground wiring and told me to ground it some where else on the chasis and I did. Turned car key to ACC, and BAM!!!, unit powered on completely, "Jensen" loading screen for about 10 secs, and everything on the screen like it's supposed to. Said thanks to the Tech guy but forgot to ask for his name. Inserted my pre-loaded SD card with 213 songs in the SD slot, the unit automatically loaded the SD card and VOILA!!! 213 songs with titles and artists. It took approximately 8 secs to load all 213 songs on the playlist. Navigated one of my favorite song "Swing Ya Rag" by T.I and BA BAM!!! The system hit extremely HARD. I have Alpine SPR-50C component speakers in front and Alpine SPS-610 speakers in rear seats all powered by Alpine MRP-F300 along with 2-12" Alpine type R ported box with Jl JX1000/1D. While the unit is ON. With just one button I can get to the Navigation feature. Maps load kinda fast, about 4 secs. It is kind of hard to use the Navigation at first, but if you spend a good amount of time driving around with it, you will get used to it real quick. About the Bluetooth, I used the Jensen BTM15 and everything is fantastic. I mounted the Bluetooth device on top of the rear view mirror for easy access every time someone calling. The sound is pretty clear, no signal dropping, and it filters out unwanted noise pretty much. I was talking through the Bluetooth the other day with my friend while driving at 60-65 MPH with windows rolled down, my friend barely heard the noise of the wind and other vehicles sounds, but heard me pretty clear. This feature is very cool. Next is Ipod Hook up feature. You can hook up pretty much all the new models of ipod Touch and Iphone. Please check the compatibility before purchase the Jensen Jlink USB, which is used to play your ipod/iphone musics and videos. If you only play musics from your ipod/iphone, you can directly plug it the USB port behind the unit. But you will need Jensen Jlink USB to play musics and videos. You can also control your ipod/iphone right on the screen. This feature is a must have for those who has ipod or iphone, but please check the compatibility first. Everything else is just PERFECT. I owned a couple of Kenwood, Pioneer and Alpine head units before, but this Jensen unit is really something. In my opinion, this unit can be compared with some fully-loaded Kenwood units and even with Pioneer with same options. Im really glad that I bought this unit. It's given me a lot of fun and joys. Highly recommend for anyone who looking for a fully-loaded head unit with limited budget.

Jury still out

December 15, 2010

Installed easily and most of the features work well. Sound is good.. Nav is good, but night screen does not work right; you can dim the screen manually but the auto dim is intermittent. Jensen has a gain control in the setup menu whereas you can preset the preamp output for different music and/or sound sources. Good feature but the unit will not always remember all the settings once you turnoff the unit. or change sources. It defaults back to the factory settings some of the time. The DVD plays well but 5.1 surround does not play as there is no center channel output. Therefore voices cannot be heard. There is no adjustment to down grade 5.1 to stereo so I guess the DVD movie thing is a waste. This is a nice unit loaded with features but the software is still buggy and needs to be updated. If Jensen does an update and fixes a few of the soft problems this unit is a keeper for the money. It is well thought out and has a lot of great features.. too bad they don't always work.

Good Navi for the Money

March 22, 2012

Great unit for the money. Installed it about a week ago and the GPS and XM Radio load quick, but I mounted the antennas on the roof. I have a feeling people that are complaining about it taking a while to load are mounting the antennas inside the car which of course is going to cause problems. Only complaints are that the Auto Dim feature doesn't always work at night, but you can manually adjust (still a pain) and you can't adjust the tones using the front MP3 port. While the input works just fine the screen is looking for a video feed to come through therefore not showing the the icon to make adjustments.

I installed this unit in my 2003 Ford Police Interceptor, thinking that the opening in the dash was a Double DIN. I was wrong, Ford (in its infinite wisdom) made a 1-1/2 DIN, and the space for the rear of the unit wasn't tall enough to accept the VM9424. Fortunately, I discovered that my 2003 had a redesigned defroster duct, and I was able to cut away the plastic rear dash support sufficient to clear the unit. A little filing of the front dash opening, and it slid right in. The unit looks good, is easy to use, and sound quality is very good. I definitely recommend this for a good in-dash starter. I subsequently purchased the BTM10 Bluetooth Module (I received the very similar BMT15 for the same price) and installed it without trouble. Incoming calls are clear, and my friends and associates swear they cannot tell I am using any sort of Bluetooth or speakerphone arrangement from their end- they report the sound quality as excellent. The main drawback is that the display is difficult to read in bright sunlight. Having no experience with other displays of this type, I cannot make a valid comparison.

Good value if you don't care about some little issues

January 30, 2012

I bought this for the nav and ipod functions both are sketchy at best. The nav is not very professional looking it looks like someone designed it in their garage. Every time I hook my phone up it takes about 10 minutes for the radio to stop playing static and start playing music. Considering it was a little more than $300 bucks compared to the $900 for a decent system, it works okay. If I had to do it all over again I would have waited until I had more money. For a company truck it works.

Best price! Great product!

December 6, 2011

Installed in 2006 Yukon. This model is packed with features and for the price it can't be beat. The screen is very nice, the touch screen works great on it. I have never used a portable GPS, only on my phone so it took a little time to learn how to use the navigation. I don't read manuals or it would have been simple. It has dual zone so you can connect headrest monitors and have them play DVD while you listen to the radio, ipod, or sd card up front. The radio stations come in clear and I get a few more than I do with the stock radio. I am going to get another one for my other vehicle!!!

This item is a very good choice feature`s wise( versus price). It works well and is easy to assemble. The only downside is that GPS signal is slow and not very user friendly. It often send you to longer route. But beside this, i like it a lot!

I can't believe how loaded this is for the price. Navigation unit is easy to use, stereo has alot of options to customize just about anything you want to. The DVD player is very good quality. Just remember to run the ground wire to the e-brake wire so your DVD player will work while you drive FOR YOUR CHILDREN OR PASSENGERS. The only bad thing I can say is that for iPod doesn't show the album artwork. BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK!

Great radio

October 20, 2011

I started looking for a flip out screen dvd player about 6-8 months ago. I was pretty much set on buying something from Pyle or BrandX. I was only looking to spend 200 bucks and found a large number of lower end stereos in my price range. That is when I came across this radio in a local custom truck shop. I played with it for a few minutes. I spent a lot of time playing with some lower cost Pioneer and Kenwood units. They (1) did not have all the features one would one in a unit like this and (2) they were not as smooth as their higher end units. I like this unit a lot. Not counting the reviews that involve damaged units or bad installs or other defective units, most reviews are fairly accurate. It does have a clunky navigation system. But it does work. It takes it longer to reroute than my wife's nuvi or my google navigation on my phone. The basic ipod controls are better than I thought. It reads the playlists that I have on the ipod. It does not play video from the 5th gen ipod videos. But, it does read videos off of the SD card slot. It will read up to an 8 gig card. The RDS works for music stations, but when I listen to ESPN 980 it does not pick that station up. Setting up presets is very easy, just find the station you want and hold down the preset button you want. There is a pretty good eq selection between presets and custom. I do not have a camera or amp or anything extra. Just the basic jeep stereo system. When they say the radio does not fit, it does not fit. I had to do a good amount of custom work, and I am not done. But after a day or two with this unit, I am very pleased I spent more than I planned and less than a top end unit.

July 18, 2011

The Jensen vm9424 has exceeded all of my expectations. First the price is approximately half of comparable featured "Name" brand recievers. Second, the features of multi-media are awesome-I use the usb drive,bluetooth,radio reciever, dvd/cd,Gps and rear monitor ouputs, and backup camera input. On the matter of quality, the reciever is well built with integral cooling fan and heat sink for the internal amp that is above the power output of most all factory radios. The touchscreen is glare resistant and I have never had trouble seeing it, and is responsive to every touch. The menus are intuitive and easy to navigate. The Gps is good and the spoken directions are a great nav/driving aid. The bluetooth with Jensen BT15 adapter sounds great even with the windows rolled down. Back-up cam is automatically displayed when vehicle is placed in reverse and also if wired for it you can even turn it on anytime radio is on. Audio quality is good- its in a vehicle not a sound stage so it reproduces music faithfully and probably as good as any others available. I was suprised with the product as I am old enough to remember when Jensen was junk, no worries now though. My only complaint is the graphics on any of the radio reciever is a little lame-useable but could have been better. Over-all I would recomend as a upgrade to anyone that wants function,not hype and price. If you want a in dash gps reciever with multi-media you need not look further, unless you want to spend more or impress some highschool kids.
