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.
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.
20 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.
2.5 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 parametric equalizer
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.

LCD 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.

Variable Colors
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Variable Color Illumination
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.

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 and Rear
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

Can't be beat!!

July 20, 2013

This media receiver is the bees knees!
Plays my 500gb hard drive and connected to my phone instantly which is cool. I have problems with my moms 2013 Mercedes GL350 (factory system) connecting to my phone but not my 2005 pt cruiser with this receiver. 10 stars if possible. And the customer service was insanely awesome!

Install JVC KD-X50BT

June 25, 2013

Just installed it without much difficulty. Took a hold 5 minutes to figure out the mounting bracket. The sound quality is much better than the factory radio. Does not have the sensitivity on FM receive that the factory radio did. Not a big deal as we listen main to digital music. After reading the manual before the radio arrived, I had a good grasp of how I wanted it setup. It was easy and intuitive. Bluetooth hooked right up to my android phone without a hitch. We'll find out how well it holds the signal over time. So far, I'm quite happy with it and have no complaints. I'll review again in a couple months.

Good audio quality, good Bluetooth integration, outstanding value

February 22, 2013

Pros: Very good audio quality (at least when combined with a Monsoon amp). Solid connectivity options (Bluetooth, USB, analog audio). Good Bluetooth integration. Effective hands-free system. Fine-tuning of colour and brightness for controls and display separately allows a perfect integration with the interior illumination of the vehicle. Shallow, so it does not require cutting even for those vehicles with shallow OEM head units (like mine). Intuitive setup. Mostly intuitive controls. No CD player (I have not used CDs in a long time). Good price.

Cons: Counter-intuitive label for the "Menu" button, which does activate the menu on a long press but has assorted, unrelated functionality (depending on the audio source) on a short press. Does not really have two USB inputs (one is taken by the Bluetooth dongle). No direct access buttons for radio presets (going to a preset requires a press on the "menu" button and then turning the volume button). The one-line display allows for very little information to be displayed at any given time. The displayed information is at times incorrect (example: when the Bluetooth playback is initiated from the player, the display keeps reading "stop" even if the music plays just fine). The establishment of a Bluetooth connection to an otherwise paired device is slow.

Other thoughts: If the cons above sound like nitpicking is because most of them are. Overall this head unit is very good in all the things that matter. The value for money is outstanding. I have the unit in the car for less than one day and I am already in love. Installation was by the way painless and essentially everything worked as advertised from the first attempt. This being said, I'll see tomorrow whether this head unit fails to turn the Monsoon amp off (this amp being very sensitive to leaked current of any kind) and so drains the battery...

Great stereo

February 19, 2013

This stereo is great at a low cost. I have my iPod hooked up through the back USB and the Bluetooth in the front. Works great. The only thing in wish it had was a 2nd USB on the back. I would rather have both iPod and Bluetooth on the back and have the front USB open for a memory stick.

Great buy!!

February 16, 2013

I bought this stereo over 6 months ago. This web site threw in the harness and wires for free. I had to deal with them a couple times and they were fantastic to deal with. Excellent service. Fast shipping (I'm in Newfoundland, Canada) and the radio itself is awesome. This radio is the into reason why I haven't sold my car yet. It works flawlessly in every way. Wither your using it for music or as a hand free device for your cell phone it works great! And at the price I got it for you couldn't get a better deal! I highly recommend this radio and web site!! I've already told a bunch of buddies about it.

Very nice head unit

February 7, 2013

Installed into JDM Toyota MR2 Turbo. Went in with no problems at all. Very easy to configure, connects to all my USB drives and has no problems connecting to my HTC Raider via bluetooth. Only downside is the Android app for this unit - essentially useless; this however, is mitigated by the fact that an app doesn't really add anything anyway. In all, great product - especially considering its cost.

Super Deal !!!

January 8, 2013

This is by far the best unit on the market for the money. I have since purchased 3 more for my other vehicles and have recommended it to many friends. It is very easy to use. It has two usb ports, which I use my blue tooth for one and thumb drive for music. I thought I might miss not having a CD player but I don't miss it all since using the memory stick. I installed the first one over a year ago with no problems.

Great MP3 Deck

January 8, 2013

I custom installed this deck in my 1980 Chevy Van, and i quite enjoying it so far, i have both our phones connected, an ipod and also a headphone jack for when i hookup a dvd player. Its does exactly what i wanted and for a great price i couldnt go wrong.
The adapter that came with the deck was useless as i had to wire everything in myself.
Recommend for anyone who wants a simple setup and doesnt use cds anymore, just mp3s

Wonderful unit for a great price.

December 26, 2012

Omitting a Disc player brought this feature packed unit down to a great price and lets face it how many people actually use Discs anymore? The Bluetooth, Aux and USB inputs all work great however the supplied mic for handsfree phone operation it severely lacking in quality. In a non running car with no ambient noise the person on the other end of a test call was struggling to hear me, I'm sure adding a quality mic would resolve this but I haven't really needed this feature so I haven't tested it. I'm happy with my purchase and would buy the same again if I had it to do over.

Great Radio

December 24, 2012

I own a slightly older JVC which I really like in my '01 Dodge Ram, so when I was looking for one like to put on my Goldwing I couldn't find the older one so I got this one instead,and now I have the KD-X50BT on the Goldwing , in my Dodge as well as my Ford 3/4ton,GMC Suburban,and my Chevy worktruck and I moved the old JVC to my Jeep.So I have 5 KD-X50BTs and no problem with any of them. Seems like a good endorsement to me!
