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.

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.
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.
Optional (Accessory required and sold separately)
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.
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.
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.
4 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.
7-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.

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.
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.
Not Specified by Manufacturer
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.


Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
WMA Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with WMA files. To burn a WMA encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
DVD / Video Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver will play DVD (or other listed) video disc formats. Unless otherwise noted, the unit is not guaranteed to play recorded DVDs.
DVD Region Number
This is the region number that the DVD receiver is compatible with. Almost any device that has the ability to play a DVD disk has a region number. DVD region codes restrict playback of movies that come from geographical locations outside of your residing place.
Dual Zone
Dual zone means the stereo is capable of playing multiple audio or video sources between two separate locations.

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.
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.

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.

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
Front 3.5mm A/V Input

Monitor Screen Features

If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
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

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.

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.

Display Adjustment
This refers to the many ways that a units display can be adjusted.
Device Mirroring
This is the ability to "mirror" a device's screen (i.e SmartPhone or Tablet) onto the headunit's display. Please check with the manufacture's website for updated information regarding compatibility and cables required for proper performance.

I am sorry to say that I was not very impressed with this radio. Bad radio reception, unstable bluetooth, and, especially, a 2011 gps map that can NOT be upgraded.

Perfect product.

March 6, 2013

Look you can read my rambling about how amazing this unit is, or you can quit procrastinating and order this godsend of a head unit. I give you my word, "You will not be dissatisfied." Well worth every penny.

But if you must know:
The navigation is seamless and amazingly accurate. Far better than my phone unit. I use the hdmi input to run youtube and netflix from my smartphone to the unit. Blutooth is flawless and crystal clear. Plus it remembers your phone for life. No resyncing. I can go on and on and on. But I'd need another battery in my phone by the time I finish telling you how awesome this unit is. Stop wasting time and order it.

I can ramble on and on about how much this head unit does and how awesome it is, but I'm not. I'll give you the basics.

1.Install was a piece of cake. Less than 15 minutes in my new Honda Ridgeline.
2. Sounds 15x better than my factory unit. Going from 2-band to 7 equalizer makes a hell of a difference.
3. Blutooth is flawless. Plus it remembers your phone after power off.
4. Has HDMI input. Yes you can play netflix , hulu, crackle, youtube, etc. from your smartphone w/ an hdmi micro to hdmi.
5. Dual Zone is Amazing. You can have your navigation (or what ever) on up front and let your passengers keep watching movies in back. They can even listen to the movie separately via ir headphones.
6. You can navigate through your entire system while whatever media or radio is playing with no interruption of media.

Good but not great.
1. Have to buy remote separately ($30)
2. PIP is slightly difficult to control. But the manual gives step by step instructions.
3. Can't get rid of Power Acoustik skulls or change the bg color. I'm not a huge fan of skulls and wish there was a way to change the logo options.

Overall this Unit is THE SHHHHHHHHHH....!!! If you want a high quality unit with low quality price don't waste your time browsing anymore. This is it.

Power Acoustik PNX-761

November 18, 2013

I have had the Power Acoustik PNK-761 for about three months now and
this unit is a good Head unit. Its got good sound and good radio reception near cities, I use my Ipod more than the radio. The GPS I have found to have some problems, in Montana, and Washington I have had some misdirections, where it will tell you to go left, when you really want to go straight or to the right. A lot of the time on the free way it will say to turn left when you want to exit to the right. when I program in my address it tells me it is on the left, when it is on the right. It also has a problem with pronouncing the street names. I wish there was a way tro get the chip up graded, to get rid of these faults. If the GPS was better I would give it a better score. It is a little hard to change from gps to radio, or Ipod while you are driving, on the head unit, but it is easier with the steering wheel controls.

best value

April 22, 2015

Installed in an antique pickup and it was a no brainer The supplied faceplate worked perfect with no modifications. The gps is dead on, love it, the sound is very good --better than expected. I will be hooking up the backup camera when I get a chance. I would recommend this unit to anyone. don,t like the skulls on the screen saver

Good value, worth the price

December 30, 2013

I've had this unit for about 3 weeks. Installation was straight forward, typical double DIN. However, the scosche dash kit I got from sonic didn't fit properly. I had to file it quite a bit so I could fit it to the HU far back enough so the screen would come down unobstructed. Not a big deal but a PITA and that shouldn't have been necessary. The rest of the install went according to plan. This HU has a wired connection for a steering wheel controller like a Kenwood or JVC. If you buy the Axxess ASWC-1 steering wheel controller just connect the male into the femal adapter that comes with the kit and then wire both the brown and brown/white wires to the HU's singular steering wheel control wire. Easy enough, the rest of that install was simple and the programming was easy. The PNX-761 interface is good, the touchscreen works great, sound quality is very good. 4V pre-outs was a big selling point as I have two amp's. Navi works fine for me even though it's old, hopefully Power Acoustik will renew their licensing agreement with TomTom so updates become available. DVD picture quality is good. Overall I'm happy with the purchase and for the price it's pretty hard to beat. With Navi updates this HU would be a steal.

Good price for a really nice radio

November 22, 2014

This is a great radio. The interface uses Window CE which is an embedded compact version of MS XP. It is actually a netbook computer running at 700Mhz. It multitask with 0 lag. Running the GPS, and DVD at the same time take a lot of processing power yet this unit plays them both in split screen without a single glitch.

Because it is a computer it has to boot up. However it is nothing like your PC at home, it takes about 5 second. If you have a backup camera attached and pop the car in reverse while it is booting, the unit will give piority to the camera and instantly show the picture while it boot in the background. (Boot time does not get longer)

Graphically the interface is clean, and well design. Moving from one application to the next is easy, it either plays them both at the same time if it make sense to do so or take over the whole screen. Shutting them down is only a maatter of clicking the [X] just like your home computer.

There is setting for manual time or GPS derive time, you simply set the time zone. You can set the brightness of the screen to dim at a set time and come back bright at another time. You can dowload you car logo and use it as screen saver. You can invoke it at anytime. If a camera is connected, it mute the volume when you reverse.

This GPS one of the best looking GPS out there (my opnion) there is a wow factor to the 3d graphics. I am not sure why they choose to show the plain black background 2D. Version on the box and on websites. Picture in picture with 2 sizes. It even has an analog speedo meter which is easier to read than a digital version. There is speed warining. Shows speed limit of road driving on. Speak and show street names. In short i have never seen a GPS with so much option. Maps colors for both day and night, 3 different english voices etc.

Bluetooth streaming and phone calls operate flawlessly. You can even change track right from your steering wheel control if connected.

On the down side. Reading anything from USB is slow as with any radio i have tested. Skipping from 1 track to next mean stopping and load. If you want instant track skipping use bluetooth and your phone.

I install this unit in a 2003 Audi Allroad. Here is what you need to install it this car.

2 files, a fine and a coarse one. If you use the scosche au2380b the bezel on the radio will not fit flush with it and the bezel that come with the scosche will not fit over the radio. You have to file the scosche trim to fit the radio if you dont want that ugly gap of course.

Metra Axxcess-1 ASWC if you want to keep your steering wheel control
Metra 40-VW54 power antenna adapter. Do not get the scosche Sonic provide.
Metra 70-1787 harnes with Bose amp.

A shopper on Sep 11, 2014
Best Answer: Yes it does, however; The maps are located on the SD card included with the head unit, if you do not have said card inserted you will not have navigation ability. Maps are transferable to a larger card if need be.

what does the pac controlpro do will i still be able to Liston to my music with iphone or Samsung phone with blue tooth?
kurt t on Nov 23, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Kurt,

Your question refers to products that have nothing to do with one another. The PAC ControlPRO is a Universal Steering Wheel Control Interface, meant to be used in situations where you wish to retain existing OEM Steering Wheel Controls. In regards to "..Liston to my music with iphone or Samsung phone with blue tooth.." that is the job of the Bluetooth feature built into the Power Acoustik PNX-761.

A shopper on Dec 17, 2014
Best Answer: We use samsung phones, and it syncs perfectly. It works via blue tooth, my assumption would be it would work with any blue tooth device. Sorry can't be more helpful.

Is it be plug and play?
solomon a on Dec 27, 2014
Best Answer: If you buy the harness that matches your vehicle. It is worth the extra money to do so. Also, you need to ground the pink wire to the unit to make the dvd player work.

I know this is 2 din, but some "2 din" units have a slightly larger bezel that will not fit through the mounting kit face plate w/o modifications. Does anyone know if this will fit into a Metra 95-7522B (double din mounting kit for Mazda CX-5)?. These are recessed into the dash, and you cannot widen the mounting face plate with a Dremel....
(I had to return a Chinese Android unit because face plate mounting width was approx. 4mm wider than the Metra face plate.)
