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.

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.
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.
1 Pair
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.
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 Selectable EQ 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.

Dot-Matrix Text 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
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

Please refer to the item description for more details on how dual zone works specifically to the unit you are viewing.

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.

Front 3.5mm

Monitor Screen Features

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.
MirrorLink Compatible
MirrorLink allows connectivity between a smartphone and the aftermarket car receiver. The consumer gets into the car, connects the phone with a cable, and gains access to phone applications through the car stereos controls such as navigation and steering wheel buttons. MirrorLink allows consumers to use their smartphones safely and simply, keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Expandability Features

Navigation
Built-in navigation is a convenient feature that allows the driver to receive driving directions and guidance.

Some in-dash head units are built-in with the navigation features, while others require an add on navigation box. Other navigation options include portable navigation units that you can take with you or attach to the dash of your vehicle.

Ok for the price

February 12, 2012

I bought this unit and had it installed and about two weeks later the backlight went out on the unit. But over all its a really cool unit and it has 200 watts so it makes your stock car speakers sound like aftermarkets and the sound is great! So for the price i would say yes.

Had for almost a year when just started to skip songs by itself. Put it on tuner, it will change stations. Got mad and turned off, it turns itself back on! Have to use remote, face plate won't work. Figured with no mechanical parts, should last a while. You get what you pay for.

Great radio for the price

March 12, 2012

Have had this radio now for 6 months. For the price, it can't be beat. There are a few things like low end hiss and noticeable skip between songs played from SD card, but is an excellent little radio for the price. Only use SD card and tuner, have never tried the aux port, so don't know what the sound is like from there. The SD card is SO much better than having all those CDs to fumble with. My son has a 6 CD in his truck, and after playing with this radio, is ready to change.

Nice radio with sd card ability

February 29, 2012

I basically have an 8gb sd card in this radio and listen to nothing but mp3's. Sound reproduction is great! Some times a little slow picking up the next random song, but sequence play is very fast.

All the features work and easy to set up. The two downsides that I have with this unit is no controlling screen brightness option. The other is that I get really bad screen glare during the day, I have to hold my hand over it to see what I am doing.

Still going strong!

February 20, 2012

I don't use cds anymore so this has been working perfect. After installation my wife wanted to drive my vehicle all the time because it had a better music selection. I've been using just a 4gb usb stick and it does pretty good. The cons are that this receiver gets pretty hot when played loudly and it is also very bright at night. Wish there was a way to dim it down a little but for the price I am not complaining. Overall I reccomend this for anyone trying to get away from cds.

Worthwhile Value

February 8, 2012

The Dual XR4115 player has worked as advertised but there was very little said about the random play (random number generator) which is a critical issue to me and I hope other users. Most folks with a disc full of mp3 tracks (upwards of 300) would use random play(shuffle) mode frequently. It is therefore important that the random sequence not repeat in short cycles as many poorly designed players do. I once rented a Chevy Cobalt in which the random track sequence was as short as 7. This Dual model performed this task adequately with one critical exception. If power was disconnected for any reason, the sequence started over at the same track and it replayed the exact same random sequence. This function needs more work since there are a number of ways the generator can produce different sequences at different starting points.

February 2, 2012

This unit is one of the best purchases and values for the money that I made to update my van. I love the "mechless" system and just being able to insert an SD card in the unit for tons of custom music. The display is very good at reading the metadata of the mp3 files. One complaint, the AM radio. At first I was ready to send it back because I was getting so much station bleed that sometimes you would hear 3 stations at once on any channel. The way I solved it was lowering the antenna almost all the way to eliminate all the interference from station other than the one to which I was tuned. The AM portion seems to be hypersensitive without a very good RF discriminator circuit.

Mechless Radio helps when you hit the waves

January 21, 2012

I own a Bayliner 20foot Cuddy boat, and the one annoying characteristic of boating anywhere are wakes and waves. I could not play the previous (spinning type) CD player because the "skipping" was bad over even the smallest wake. That previous player had 10sec skip prevention but even when that was enabled, the cd's would pause, then restart and so on. I replaced the previous kenwood with this less expensive "mechless" model and played digital MP3 copies of my classic music and now the skip problems are eliminated even at 40 Knots. ISSUES: in BRIGHT SUNLIGHT, all InfraRed based remote control links fail (the sun just overwhelms the receiver). Partial resolution: I constructed a sunshade just for the radio housing on the dash (which is angles slightly upwards). Although this radio has been soaked several times, I would recommend the Jensen flip cover to protect against rain and splashing. Overall: I would recommend this particular brand; its cheap enough not to worry about theft.

Great price, great value, quality and easy installation!

January 20, 2012

Bought this for a Toyota. I dont listen to cds so I didnt want to buy a cd player. This was perfect and I'm impressed with the USB aspect. Did not know it was so easy to listen to music via a thumb drive. You actually dont even need a MP3 player which shocked me. I currently have a 2gb thumb drive that I loaded around 200 songs on and I still have tons more room on the drive. I recommend using the USB port if you just want to let your music play through without a special order. Installation was simple. Some people complain about displays burning out on the Dual brand. MAKE SURE YOU INSULATE THE UNUSED ILLUMINATION WIRE. It's really that simple in regards to that problem. No complaints with this product I am glad I decided to purchase. Thank you to all previous reviews for all of your information.

Great digital media receiver!

January 16, 2012

There don't seem to be many of these guys to choose from, and this one may be the most economical. I don't suppose that any of these things are perfect, but this one sounds great in my antique Accord (1988). It seems to do everything it's supposed to do and most of the things I'd like it to do. I'm probably going to buy another one for another vehicle I have. I'd recommend it to anyone!

Don't buy this unit if you plan on using the tuner AT ALL!!!

December 15, 2011

I ended up buying this head unit for my work van, I just needed something low-priced with an aux-in jack for my mp3 player. After installing it, I was shocked at how bad the tuner reception was and thought for sure that the antenna plug had somehow come out when I was putting it in place in the dash-not the case! The antenna plug was in place and the reception was horrible! I live in the Milwaukee metro area and normally the Milwaukee stations come in totally clear and some of the Chicago stations come in as well. On this unit, the local stations faded in and out and had other stations bleeding through and I couldn't pick up any Chicago stations at all. I know that there was no problem with the antenna because both the factory radio that was in before it and the Kenwood unit I replaced it with tune in all stations just fine. I had it installed for 1 day of driving around and listening to the awful tuner and decided it was better worth it to pull the whole darn thing out and replace it! Besides the awful tuner, I thought I just looked kind of cheap as far as the faceplate and display go. As far as I got in the owner's manual, I don't think you can do much adjusting to the sound, either, you just have to go with their preset Rock, Jazz, etc. I guess the options of having the usb and sd card inputs are nice if you will really use them, I just find myself using the 3.5mm aux jack anyway, so that didn't make a difference for me, either. The Kenwood unit I replaced it with for the same price looks and performs MUCH better!

Poor build quality

November 7, 2011

I spotted this unit and realized it was perfect for what I needed, between the radio, sd card / usb slot, and the aux input I'd never need to burn another cd. Unfortunately, the LED backlight for the display seems to have died after about 3 weeks. Volume is decent, and the manual states that the unit is actually CEMA 2006 certified, though at (I believe) 18w x4, not at the 50w x4 advertised. A full equalizer would've been nice, but at this price point I don't expect it. Sound quality is better than I expected, although I do get some slight interference through the Aux input with a 3ft cable. Install was very straightforward, and the unit itself is a bit shorter than your standard CD player, so it's easy to squeeze into vehicles that have a cluster of wires behind the factory radio.

Overall, a great buy

October 17, 2011

There are very few mech-less units available from any manufacturer, so I consider that a plus for the XR4115. I don't know of anybody that still uses CD's in their cars, so I'm shocked that more manufacturers haven't gotten on the mech-less bandwagon. The sound from the XR4115 is excellent, if not incredibly loud. However, the sound is clean pretty much all the way up to the max volume of '40'. The display is nice looking, although, does have a slight cheap-ish look. But, if the unit does what it's supposed to do, that really doesn't matter that much to me. Although, I do have a couple of complaints with the interface. First, the removeable face plate tends to rock and move when you push buttons. While not a deal-breaker, I'm sure they could find a way to make it more stable. Second, the volume knob is too shallow and also moves and flexes when you grip it. Third, with the unit not having a cd slot, you'd think they could have found room for dedicated station preset buttons, dedicated loudness button (you have to cycle through the sound settings to get to the loudness control). In general, the buttons are all a bit too hard to press, but once again, not a deal-breaker, especially for the price. I didn't find the brightness to be an issue either. It would have been nice if the lcd display was a bit larger though, to enable more info on it. Fourth, the unit is pretty slow at the initial read of an SD card (and I would imagine a USB drive too). It took between 30 secs to a minute to read my card wih ~2000 songs on it. It was also slow the first time I pressed the next folder (down) button, taking almost another 30 seconds to go to the next folder. But since then, it moves to the next folder almost instantly. So I'm not sure if it was just not totally finished scanning the card or what. But, like I said the sound from the unit is excellent, so good that I'm considering just keeeping my stock speakers, at least for now. Also, it's SO cool to have my whole music library in my car and available to play without having to fumble with discs (including MP3 discs). If you want to go mech-less and don't want to spend a ton of money, you can't go wrong with this unit.

Great radio for the price

September 23, 2011

Great find! I am able to cram hundreds of songs and even concerts on an SD card. There is a slight pause between songs when playing off the SD card, but you get used to it quickly. Haven't used the USB port but have used the aux port for my nano - works great. Don't really have an issue with it being too bright at night.

Good buy for the money!

August 26, 2011

Installed this yesterday to replace a dying factory head unit in my 98 chevy silverado. I don't usually do reviews but this shows my approval for the product and I usually buy products that have more reviews than this one has. So here is my initial impression: The pros: - The unit made my replacement speakers come to life! - First thing I listened to was through the USB, wasnt too difficult to navigate through folders to find songs - Radio sounded good as well - Had wife test drive it to town and back which is about 10 miles round trip and now she thinks she needs a better system for her car. The Cons: - Unit has a very bright display, especially at night. - Went to town to buy an antenna adapter and unit was almost hot to the touch when removing it to install the adapter. Overall I recommend this unit especially if you want to follow the movement to get away from cds and want to save a little money in the process. Flash drives and SD cards are getting cheap and you donít have to worry about them getting scratched unlike cds.

Decent stereo

August 17, 2011

Owned this stereo for a week now. Pretty simple to operate out of the box. Audio quality very good using 5.25 speakers. Will likely add an amp and subs to this unit. It has been playing mp3's flawlessly on an 8 gig Sandisk mmc. Haven't tried the usb port yet. Would have liked the capability of adjusting the illumination for night driving. The display is bright but not overwhelming. Overall, a bargain for the price and looks good in the dash.
