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.

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.
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.

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.
22 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.
2 Pairs (Front and Switchable Rear/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.
EEQ (Easy EQ) 5-band graphic equalizer with 7 selectable tone curves (5 Preset, 2 User)
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.
Variable Colors
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.
91 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.
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

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.

None

Great Stereo

September 28, 2011

I bought this stereo a few months ago and installed it into my 2004 Nissan Xterra. I love it! It installed really easy, it works great and I have yet to have any problems. My car battery did die and when I jumped my car the fuses blew in the back of the stereo but I just had to change them and it went back to normal. The set up is really easy to understand. it does sometimes go back to demo mode when I eject a CD until I select a new input format. I just wish it was easier to watch ipod videos on the screen.

I purchased this as a gift for one of my friends car wich is a 04 hyundai tiburon. I even intalled it for him which was a simple and easy process. It fit perfect and did not stick out from the center consol of the car it was flush with all the panels. The radio was flawless in every feature and price. I shop here for all my vehicle equipment.

Great choice for a great price!

May 29, 2012

I purchased this double-din deck 6 months ago on sonic electronix and it was the best choice I could have made. The quality of this product blew me away, I was a little worried about buying it online because I wasn't sure if the quality would be the same as store bought. Turns out it was the exact same quality as the store bought items but for a price that a store would never be able to match! I am so impressed with the overall purchase, even the shipping was made so easy with no hidden charges. I would recommend to anyone to buy this double-din. I have not had a problem with it since the day I installed it and don't have a single complaint about it!

Ive had the AVH-P2300DVD installed in my 07 Impala for a little over a year now and all i can say is awesome value for the money. I highly recomend this product if you don't want to break the bank.

Pioneer AVH-P2300DVD Review

February 24, 2012

Very great item and worth the price. It includes a lot of useful features and runs perfectly with no problems. May be difficult for some people to install at home but a couple youtube videos should be a lot of help. Overall happy with the item and the purchase.

Very nice double din. Would highly recommend especially for the price. Only thing negative is if you are going hook up your iPod to it then you are going to have and look at the wire hanging out the front of it (doesnt have a rear connection for Ipod).

I bought this unit because it looked like it does everything I needed it to do. It turns out, it does! It looks pretty radical in my cargo van! My only complaint is that browsing an ipod is a little of a pain, but tolerable. I actually ordered it while deployed in Afghanistan and had it delivered to my parents house in the states. I was nervous about it but everything I ordered, which was several pieces, showed up and it was all in great shape. I'd order form Sonic again.

omg so great

This radio is awesome. Put all my music and pictures and movies on my 32 gig flash drive and it works perfectly. I overrided the safety feature where you cant watch videos while driving by simply adding a toggle switch inline with the parking break wire. I have to switch it whenever i want to override the feature but hey who cares.

I have installed mine in a 2004 pontiac bonneville. Looks and works great. Love how you can customize it, for example: button color and background can be changed. The touch screen responds very quicly, and I love how i can control my iPod onscreen. It works flawlessly. You can use the Apple cable to connect your iPod for music, but if you are planning to watch video from it, you will need the Pioneer CD-IU50V. You can also save songs to a usb flash disc and use that similar to an iPod. The radio is easy to navigate, and I have owned it for a month and have not had a problem yet. Auxilary input works good, and you are able to shut off the screen and just use the buttons if it is too bright at night. This radio also has a small internal amp, which makes my factory speakers sound much better, even the bass is better! Installation was pretty straightforward.

I also installed the Axxess ASWC so my steering wheel controls would work, which works well, and was fairly easy to install after printing off the instructions from the internet.

My only complaint is the free adapters that sonic provided with the radio. The dash kit worked perfect, except that it did not hold up the back of the radio, so i just put a small piece of rubber (such as a cut mudflap) underneath in in the back to hold it up, which works great. But the antenna adapter and wiring adapter on the other hand was wrong, but that was just for my Bonneville.

If you are planning to install this radio in a bonniville, you will need the PAC C2R-GM32R for the wiring adapter, which is far from free. And you wil need the Metra 40-VW10 for the antenna adapter, although it says it is not for the bonneville, and it does require some force to plug in, it does work.

It is a great radio. This is my first Pioneer product, and I am very pleased, would definitely buy another Pioneer Head Unit.

pretty neat

December 27, 2011

I bought this deck as a present to myself for Christmas. I hooked it up about two days ago so i cant really say how durable it is. DVD/CD playback is great and the EQ along with power acoustik tweeters 6.5" 2-way kickers and 5-way kenwood 6x9s have my car sounding the best it has ever sounded. I purchased the car antenna adapter also, but i can only catch about 2 stations compared to about 14 on my stock radio but i think its a great buy for the price! I would recommend this product any day.

I never opened and exchanged for the avh e3300bt. But I am sure it is a great unit because the 3300 I am very pleased with. If you have a smaller budget I would definatly think this unit will blow you away.
