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.

52 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 5 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 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 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 Graphic 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
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.
120 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.

Yes

HD Radio

January 19, 2014

Get this radio, HD is way awesome. Sound quality is noticeable, old music sounds like new, songs sound different than I've ever heard before. Very crisp - all the little stuff comes out. Free extra channels some even commercial free, remote is convenient, so much better than stock radio. Didn't expect this at all. Replaced Honda accord radio, wicked light show - like a disco. Doesn't support android - or Pandora on android, menus are a little complicated but some neat stuff if you keep digging. Sonic is by far the best price free supplies, such a deal for Honda accord 04. The radio is attached to the heat so it had to go in the glove box. The old radio was turning on with out the key and draining the battery. So happy with this radio I bought another one for the other car.

Great head unit

January 9, 2014

This is a great head unit and a great value. I bought this unit as a christmas gift for my little brothers first car and after a quick and easy install I was jealous I didn't get one for my self. Set up was painless. It was very user friendly, the quality made the speakers sound better than they did with the stock radio and amplifier that came from Ford. The HD stations came in crystal clear and my brother couldn't wait for his birthday so he could expand his new car audio experience as he now wants to get an amp and sub to go with his new head unit. This was a great buy and I would recommend it to anyone looking to upgrade they're factory radio. Working with sonic electronix is and has been a pleasure!

Great Unit

December 6, 2014

Its everything it says it is. Its priced right, sounds great and had good features. Bluetooth would be nice for this price but is not a deal breaker. Having 3 preamp outs is great if you intend to run amp/and or crossover units behind this unit. The EQ and other built in filters work great, spend a little time getting everything fine tuned and you will love the sound.

November 8, 2015

I like this stereo! It was easy to install (and I'm a girl. Even though we are capable of installing such items- many of the opposite gender are surprised I did all the work) Sonix was right on in their recommended accessories and thanks for the free wiring harness. Your tutorial videos were exceptionally helpful as a go to if unsure about anything.
This Sony stereo itself has tons of background colors to chooses from or I just keep it on random setting and it color melds into all the colors as it changes. Cool option. Overall, I'd recommend this particular stereo for the price and quality. Thanks Sonix.

Good product ordered due to sale price and features. My wife wanted to be able to plug in her music to the stereo which she could not do with the factory radio. Sonix also supplied the harness adapter and frame to fit the car. Very quick to send unit and I am happy to give Sonix future business based on this great experience.

Everything works how I expected, but the display is a little hard to see at times, even with the brightest color. I hate how it cant just sit still. I wish it would display the song and station or whatever and then show the time, but it doesn't seem like I can get it to do that , I will tinker with it some more, but it does the job.

The radio has various lights that shine while playing along with the feature of removable face-plate. There are many nice features about this CD player but the wiring harness that came with it was not fully functional. However, the radio itself has more features than needs therefore, I am happy with it. It has remote control and iPod port as well. Buy it you will not be disappointed.......I AM HAPPY WITH THIS PURCHASE

1984 Camaro Z28 Stereo install

January 6, 2016

Stereo head unit is too long to install without major modification to console plastic heating/cooling duct inside console at rear of head unit wire plug connection.It was necessary to completely remove plastic duct to allow unit to fall deep enough into mounting area.I,personally was able to complete this installation but do not recommend this unit as a drop in application for easy fit.Modifications are necessary.Please remove this as a fit for the listed vehicle and start more detailed measurement calculations.Great stereo and sound once installed.

Easy install
Love the color changing effects
Sound output is perfect for my JBL speakers
Plenty of rear inputs for additional front & rear speakers( and sub input aswell)
The only drawback is the unclipping method, when you go to detach the faceplate!( kinda takes a bit of fidgeting to remove)

Excellent Unit

September 28, 2015

I'm very satitisfied with this unit. I noticed the crisp clear sound when I first powered on the radio. There are multiple preset sound settings that allow you to alter the sound to your music. Reception is great. My CD's encoded with titles show up on the screen. The screen has two different colors to chose from red and blue and dims when the night lights are powered on. Most important it was a "Great Buy", Thank you.

Nice unit

September 28, 2015

I just finished installing this radio in a 2005 Ford F-150. First off, get a wiring harness that is made for your car. It really saves a lot of time when soldering and you don't have to cut factory wires. I will say that this was a nice upgrade for now I can listen to HD radio, a really nice feature. It is crystal clear and can connect with many more stations in my area. (NW Indiana)

I constantly have problems with aftermarket radio's lights being too bright. I was particularly interested in this unit due to its option of having an entirely red screen illumination. I currently have the radio set to bright white during the day and a very dim red at night. The colors change when the headlights are turned on or off. The factory radio location is fairly high on this truck, and the dim red is just fine for night driving.

Do not buy this headunit if you're looking to gain power output to your speakers. The peak wattage is 52w and I believe RMS is somewhere around 17w, which is fine if you don't care about impressing your friends...

The button layout and iPod navigation(Playlists, Albums, Songs, etc..) are just fine. They take some getting used to but are fairly simple after overcoming the learning curve.

For the iPhone Pandora users; the Pandora function works elegantly..

Make sure you want a front USB port before you buy this unit, I've seen many people with Alpine units with rear USB ports that have a cable hardwired into a glove box. This is a particularly nice if you don't like a cluttered up dashboard..

All in all for twenty over a hundred bucks, this unit will do the job just fine.

Awesome receiver

September 28, 2015

Sony products have historically been good and this one is no exception. Has all the features you could need and sounds great. Installation was a breeze and there's only a small learning curve to know how to make all the necessary personal settings. I would definitely recommend purchasing one.

Is wiring required?
Tom S on May 16, 2015
Best Answer: yes,most likely you will have to wire the new connector pigtail to your existing setup,due to the fact old connector will probably not fit into the GT710. I recently installed mine in a wragler replacing older model sony cdx and had to replace the snap on connector due to a smaller designed plug. Process was fairly simple just snip off old connector, match wire colors, and solder or crimp new one to it. I prefer solder due to off road rattling encountered. Also please note that you may have wires not in use on the supply/pigtail. Usually for remotes or addition amps. Hope this was helpful.
