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.

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.
18 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 5 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
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.
82 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

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.

A must have

February 27, 2012

I have this unit for at least 5 months and let me tell you is the best unit i have owned so far. The picture is crystal clear, and the capabilities of the unit are extensive. There are options for GPS and a rear view camera. These are excellent extras to have available. I have a small car with a small dashboard and regular screen radios did not fit. This flip out radio works seamlessly. There is no stutter, pause, or noise when the screen comes out. The bluetooth option is amazing. Once my iPhone was connected I am able to play music without connecting it via USB. The option to make and recieve calls through the radio is also wonderful while driving. This radio far surpassed my expectations and I would recommend this to anyone who wants a screen but has no space for it.

Cool starter screen

November 11, 2014

This flip out is cool for someone starting off or (like me) old school and don't require a whole lot of flash. It does what it's supposed to do for the most part. Had a few headaches getting the DVD screen to engage because of the pesky parking brake issue but that's easily fixed via (relay). Oh yea make sure you have hella room behind your dash cause this lil monster has a stack and a half of wires and rca's that will normally keep you from getting the radio docked into position. Had to cut out the middle of the inner decking to just get the beast in!

Great Unit

November 1, 2014

Excellent unit for the price. Easy to install.

Cons: The screen does not automatically close when ignition is turned off. Not a big deal as you just have to get used to powering off before turning the ignition key off. Also, it is too bad it does not have an interface for newer iPhones.

Very Suprised and Pleased!!!

February 20, 2014

I heard mixed reviews on this model, and I just gotta say with ALL the features for the price it's really hard to beat, when I showed it to my co-workers they could not believe it was under $300. quite functional the Bluetooth works great, love the hands free. iPod video's play and sound great. did I mention options, options and more options? I installed it myself in about an hour and a half. Replaced a Kenwood kdc-mp2035, and right away I noticed a difference in sound quality, even though the same ole stock speakers! I recommend it to all my friends and co-workers. By far the best dollar 4 dollar value.

I bought this because it was on sale and I like Clarion products. It has not disappointed. It is very easy to use and install was a breeze thanks to the kit. The only downside I have is that the reverse camera doesn't automatically pull up when I put it in reverse, my friends truck does. Other than that, I love this player!

September 17, 2013

I would say this deck is a great deck for the price. I have it installed in my Firebird. I would say it would be much nicer if it displayed the song title, artist name, album, & cover art through bluetooth but it does not. It connects pretty well to bluetooth but sometimes it does not and has errors connecting. I have it hooked up to two Kenwood 12" 2400W Subwoofers and two 3000W Kenwood amps and I can say this deck handles it greatly. It hits very hard, flexing the back window. I would recommend this deck for the price.

Upgrading factory head unit in my 2007 Honda Ridgeline RTL. This unit has all the features I want and then some, all while being tucked away when closed as to draw less attention in the streets of ATL.

does the Clarion VZ401 have life update by satellite?
antonio m on Aug 9, 2014
Best Answer: Nope no fancy update at all. No satellite connection either. If you mean GPS then I do not know. The base unit has no GPS it is an add-on box sold separately.

What all do I need to have Sirius and nav? . My car did not com equipped with them.
Erin B on Aug 31, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Erin,

Unfortunately, this headunit does not have a Navigation option, nor is there an external part/accessory that can be matched with it to acquire such. Moreover, in order to obtain the Sirius function, you must locate the - sense discontinued - SIRIUS SCC1 (SC-C1) SiriusConnect Universal Vehicle Tuner .
