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.
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.
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.
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.
1 Pair (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.
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-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.

White
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.
105 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

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
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

Good unit for the money

October 13, 2014

Pros: Good cost, sounds great, good features, fits good. adapts to GMC interface for steering controls and bell sound effects (turn signal, keys in ignition, other alert bells). Blue tooth works well except you cannot change the ring tone.

Cons: Hard to get it to fit at the right depth with dash kit. No speed sensor for volume control, Display is a bit weak looking (no resolution, no color choice, does not dim with dash dimmer) volume control moves very quickly and knob feels a little cheesy.

Fantastic Sound Enhancement!

August 23, 2014

Not sure what to expect from this unit, as it was purchased to replace the original sound system in a 1997 Toyota Avalon, which only came with a tape player, plus the "in trunk" CD set-up.
What a pleasant surprise when the Alpine was first turned on....the crystal-clear, true-to-life sound of ALL the instruments was amazing. Before the unit was even turned on, I had asked the installing technician if I should also replace any of the speakers and his reply was..."Not with this unit". How right he was!
Finally, just wanted to mention that we are senior citizens and wanted a unit that was easy to use. The Alpine has buttons that are well-lit up and the writing is large enough so that one does not have to strain ones eyes to read what each has written on it...a real bonus!
Must say the young man who helped us with the choice of the Alpine was very knowledgeable and suggested the right product for our needs. Sonic it is from now on!

Son seems to love it...

January 20, 2014

Son had a factory AM/FM radio in his 2010 GMC Sierra regular cab, this was part of his Christmas gift. Sonic matched it up with the right harness, mounting kit and antenna adapter, then I picked two pairs of "inexpensive" speakers as well. Went with Alpines in the doors and JBL GTO 4x6 in the rear. Great "father son bonding moments" by installing it all ourselves. We still like each other too. You tube is my friend, Sonic had an installation video on there as well. The unit is easy to figure out, Bluetooth works great with both of our Iphones and the mic installed easily up by the windshield to the left of the rear view mirror. Would advise anyone looking to replace a double din factory head unit to give this one a look. I did have to cut out a tab bit up under the dash to get it to go all the back. Son loves the look and the sound. Thanks Sonic, you guys are great!

Bluetooth issues

January 12, 2014

Great sound quality, features, and look for the price. Has issues with my wife's droid RAZR, however, using streaming Bluetooth. Hands free phone works perfectly. Will display "BT a paused" after one song is played through Pandora or Google music. According to forums, the head unit has issues with Motorola Verizon phones. Ah well, she uses the aux in to get around it. Overall a good head unit.

January 6, 2014

Awesome improvement on quality of sound from my new Alpine CDE-W235BT compared to factory Ford head unit. Easy install & use of controls. If you plan on installing it yourself, I would recommend to search for a "DIY" for your type of vehicle. By me doing it myself, I've saved on a $100 install! Blue tooth works amazing!!, Pandora's awesome too! Only negative I can think of is the color of lighting, haven't figured out how to change color.

Tons of Features!

December 20, 2013

I basically bought this deck for the bluetooth to my iphone and my car wouldnt get broken into because it looks almost stock in my mk4 vw golf. also, this paired with the factory amlifier for the 8 component speakers sound amazing! im going to wait for a while to get a sub/amp in there because this deck gives amazing bass and clear treble for those dubstep lovers out there!

It works excellent with iphone and ipod through the usb. But as long as you have bluetooth on it will always receive your calls through the deck. Which is cool and all but when your leaning on your hood and the mic is in your dash its a little frustrating :p I have yet to use my usb stick with it but ive read reviews saying that its a bit tedious since you can only see one line of text so finding a specific song is a bit frustrating. Anyways, im very happy with my deck and would buy another if it ever dies!

And sonic electronics recommended everything i needed and it was nothing to install! Thanks guys!

Pretty good, though a bit of a concern.

September 17, 2013

I'm not sure whether mine is defective since it doesn't take in the disc. If anything.. any disc I put in it spits it right back out for an unknown reason. I'm not sure if this is always the case. It's pretty good, wish it would have a visualizer though and wish it would actually read discs. Luckily I've been using the bluetooth feature which is fantastic.

Good car stereo

September 11, 2013

I purchased this item because of bluetooth connectivity and USB flash connector and i liked how stereo looks , I use this stereo about half of year so the pros and cons that I detected :

pros:
- good design
- good sound
- good Bluetooth connectivity (i use it as hands free with my phone Nokia 5800 and as music sours prom phone )

cons :
- Sometimes phone does not connect automaticaly but it my be a phone problem
- The biggest problem that i found is file structure of files on usb flash and searching of music found on flash drive (stereo can read 100 folders in one folder max 100 files ) so mostly I listen to random music on my usb flash drive becouse it's hard to find desired song/artist/album

Great Unit!

April 30, 2013

I really like this unit.
It sounds great. I replace a cheaper Pioneer that was rated for the same power but this is much more powerful with cleaner, fuller sound.
I didn't realize that a head unit could make so much difference. With the Pioneer it sounded bad enough that I was planning to replace the factory Bose speakers but now don't feel I need to do that.

Bluetooth is great, installation was easy. Controls are easy once you figure them out.
I love the USB on the front. An 8gig memory stick holds 100 MP3 CDs and only costs a few bucks. Don't have to burn and carry CDs anymore!

I don't like the low-res display, it is blocky and doesn't give as much info as I'd like. I expected better but you don't see the display until you actually install and turn on the unit.

With the correct harnesses this unit works perfectly. Navigation thru the menu and settings is a little to get used to but makes sense once you learn the ins and outs. Would recommend to anyone looking for a Bluetooth stereo.

Installed this unit in a 2008 Sliverado. Looks great, and provides plenty of juice for the Rockford Fosgate 6.5" co-ax speakers in the truck. Excellent upgrade from stock.

There are problems though, streaming music from a player (I use Winamp for Android) from my Android powered phone causes errors with the unit. As long as there is a seamless supply of tunes, there is no problem. If there is a pause in between songs, such as Pandora, then the head unit shows a "BT Pause" error and will not stream. This has to do with the Alpine programming and the Android OS - what's worse is that I do not see a fix on the horizon. Even if it worked seamlessly, there is no control for streaming music or Pandora other than volume control through the unit. The phone option works great though and the supplied mic provides great sound quality.

I am not unhappy with the unit, because it is miles better than stock, but if I knew that it would have bugs with an Android phone, I would of never bought it.

Also, I think the display could be a little better now that LCD displays have come so far in recent years.

Great value for stock replacement, Excellent value for Apple device users.

Is this android compatible?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Yes. All headunits are 'Android Compatible', due to their 'Open Platform'. This is so common, that there is no need to Have to specify compatibility. [like we do for that Other type of phone ;)]

Can I install a satellite tuner to this head unit?
A shopper on Oct 29, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,

Yes, but the W235BT is NOT Satellite Radio Ready, so there is no proprietary Satellite Tuner/Antenna for the headunit. Instead, you must use a 'Universal SiriusXM Car Kit' , that utilizes headunits 3.5mm Input . Obviously this isn't a practical as a proprietary module and will not allow you to Control the 'Kit' from the headunit, but it is the Only way.

I was told by a competitor that this unit would not fit my 1999 Buick Regal because of shallow depth. I have Alpine units in all my cars and would like to install this head unit in my Buick, please confirm that it will fit without custom installation ?. Thank you
Terry D on Oct 9, 2014
Best Answer: My suggestion would be to ask a professional installer, giving him the dimensions of the unit. Almost sounds like a custom install job, but from the short time we have had this unit in our car, it would be well worth the expense.
