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.
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.

80 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 Mono Subwoofer Output
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.
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.
2-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.
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.
70 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.

No

All
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.

No

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.

2 Sets 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.

Backward
Forward
Display Adjustment
This refers to the many ways that a units display can be adjusted.

Amazing Deal!!

April 8, 2012

Not really one to write reviews - but, this is probably the best piece of business I have done in a while. Bought it for my 2010 VW Golf City to replace a system that I bought a few months ago. I have a friend who installs navi systems and recommended Sonic Electronix. When I first saw the Pyle - it seemed to good be too good to be true for the price. Yet, after reading reviews from various websites - the majority were very positive. I played around with it to familiarize myself with the functions and was blown away with the amount of features. I like the Bluetooth and the fact I can play all my music from my iPhone 4S wirelessly. I could even listen to Internet radio. I tried the GPS and it was extremely accurate with the voice directions. I was even able to add a 16GB SD Card filled with Mp3's and video files which it read very quickly. If you're looking for a reasonably priced system with all the features - get this one without a doubt. Also, in dealing with Sonic Electronix Customer Service Staff - friendly & professional. To finish off, the only negative for me was the lack of a Cage to fit in the dash. I modified my present one, but need to purchase the correct model as it is sticking out slightly. Reading a review on their website - SE has a pioneer model for $39.99 that should do the job.

It is very nice to be able to fit modern equipment like the combo radio and GPS Pyle offers into my old car (2003 Crown Vic). The installation went OK because after wiring the cables together Pyle equipment worked fine.

May 4, 2014

The Pyle PLDNV78i has some great features. However, it has some issues that are some what minor concerns. 1) This unit will not fit a 2006 Toyota Tundra properly, it a tight fit and it will not let the unit open to insert DVDs. 2) If the day is bright and sunny , its hard to see the screen due to the bright reflection. and 3) Once you start your vehicle, the radio will go blank and the USB wants to load. this will be for a few seconds and then the radio will go back on .

A good deal for the money

January 12, 2014

Everything works as stated. The only issue I have is if you own this unit you are not allowed to updated the gps at all. The features & accuracy are fine but you can tell it needs to be updated. The one cool thing about the gps is it has alerts for the red light cameras. This unit is slightly larger than the standard so this install is not an easy 123 install. You have to be good enough to make some modifications of your own. Hey for the money it is not a bad unit and it is better than the factory radio. Oh one more thing, you will loose your steering wheel controls if you have them.

7" Navigation/DVD/CD/AM-FM Touch Screen Radio

January 4, 2014

I ordered the 7" Navigation/DVD/CD/AM-FM Touch Screen Radio for my wife's 2011 Nisan Titan as a Christmas present. She does a significant amount of driving (any where from 5-10 hours at a time.) and our two little girls are always with her. The navigation system has lead her easily along her routes and has made the travel experience much more pleasant versus the experience of the small 4" Tom Tom which we had suction-cupped to her windshield that always fell off. The directions are always accurate, and they keep up with the car. The DVD player works great and has an amazing picture! It really helps to keep the kids from crying the entire trip. Also, the transition from DVD back to Navigation is quick and easy. I would highly recommend this!

good value for the price

September 17, 2013

The unit has met all expectations with a few minor glitches. There is not much in the way of information in the owner/user manul and the web site does not give much more info. But over all I'm satisfied with the unit.

Discouraged

September 5, 2013

Day after install and the GPS no longer works. Spent all day yesterday installing and with major modifications to my dash. All worked last evening and to work. Came out of work and GPS won't load. It keeps saying to put in the card. I do but nothing. I called Sonic Electronix and all they said was send it back (nothing to try) just rip it out and send it back. I contacted the maker without any positive results. Now this gift has no worth. It will cost to send it back, hole in my dash and my wife threw out the packaging so that's a problem.

Nice Unit

May 10, 2013

I would recommend this unit for the simple reason is the price cant be beat!!! I don't like the fact that there are no instructions but the Tech support at sonic was pretty good about helping me. I had an issue with the back up camera install no one ever told me to run a 12v reverse line to the BACK wire coffee color wire. I had to spend 4 hours goggling it. Here is what I found "You must wire the trigger wire to the head, the wire should be labled reverse. This is a +12v hi the head must see in order to switch on the backup cam. The trigger wire is part of my RCA cable running to the back of the truck. The trigger should be connected to the (+) reverse lamp side. When you put the car in reverse the head will see the +12v and turn on the backup cam. You still need the power for the cam also. The wire is coffee colored and labeled (BACK) on the PLDNV78i. When the 12+ from the reverse lamp is applied to this line the display will be forced to turn on the backup cam." I also know on a F150 you don't connect the Tele mute wire it cuts the sound off and on once you drive. Other than that this unit ROCKS!!!!!

Excellent service

March 23, 2013

Had to finally replace the AM/FM factory base radio. Chose the Pyle double din 7". Thought about ordering without the GPS, but...for just a few dollars more, I'm glad I did. My order arrived quickly, and the packing and all components were more than adequate. I pulled out the old Ford factory unit, (had a DIN removal tool,) and installed the new unit in less than an hour. This unit is very light on installation instructions, so I'd ask for help if you've never installed a radio previously. This being said, the wiring harness and the connector I ordered, (ask your sales person), made the job easy. Unit sounds great! I wanted the new unit installed before going on a long road trip, and had a lot of fun learning everything about the Pyle system. Yes, it is a budget Double Din, but....it's got DVD, GPS, IPOD connect, SD card interface, CD, etc. Haven't used the DVD feature yet, but the GPS worked very well and I used it everyday on my 3 week out of town visit. The sound is awesome, especially compared to the factory head unit. For the money, I think you can't go wrong. Thanks, Sonic!

Not bad

February 28, 2013

If you are thinking of putting this in a new Dodge Ram, stop. This unit does not fit without major re-construction. I had to carve away a lot of plastic at the old radio mount, then I had to cut the metal bracket inside the dash with tin snips, then, after ready for install, the outside panel opening did not allow enough clearance for the front panel to open and close without binding up. After a lot of trimming and a boogered up front panel, the unit is finally installed but now I have to come up with a creative way to cover up damage. Forget the face plate, that is useless. Some good things, the problem that everyone was having with the sound and the GPS issues while playing music is non existent with this unit. It works fine. Car logos are terrible. A lot of cars listed that I never heard of and no Dodge Ram logo at all. Wiring the unit was a piece of cake and it was my first aftermarket radio install ever. E-brake wire will ground to the unit to allow DVD play so, don't go buy anything extra to make that happen. So far I have tested the SD card play, the bluetooth, and the GPS. All three of those work so far, bluetooth set up was a bit of a task with a Galaxy note, took a couple of tries but got it. The unit is too high. The mounting kit that I got with it was sufficient enough to cover the normal width opening as this unit is not as wide as the stock unit, but the height is way off. Sound is good, but I will need to upgrade my speakers, already planned on it, as my stock speakers cannot handle the unit at too high of a volume. Touch screen is a bit troublesome, especially when looking for your car logo and background items. I still have to play with some settings, but, I'll figure it out. Overall, pretty happy with it except alterations to the vehicle. I don't think the unit would have sit as flush as I would have liked, but, for the price, it looks good in there and will look better when I can figure out how to trim it out to hide the scars.
