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.

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.
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.
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.
5-band parametric
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
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

Yes
Number of Rear USB Inputs
1
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.

Pioneer 8600 bh head unit

May 15, 2014

This head unit is awesome, when coming from a basic mp3 3 band equilateral that was outdated. The good: clean and easy to use setup, change color/contrast of HU, sound control from loudness, 5 band eq, bass boost, hpf ect! Bluetooth sounds good, just mount the mic correctly for your vehicle. He radio sounds good. The bad: the deck has a brightness of 1-5. It's too bright at night at 5 but then can't see the deck during the day at 3. I wish it had an auto exposure setting :) also, when taking the face plate off, after hitting the corner button and pulling out, the faceplate still always gets stuck a little bit which is kind of annoying so I guess that takes practice. I would reccomened this deck for the price

A lot going on in this single DIN Pioneer! Great bang for the buck.

March 12, 2014

I like this single DIN Pioneer DEH-X8600BH! Some background, I installed the Pioneer 2600BT touchscreen DVD in my wife's car and this smaller, hceaper unit seems a bit easier to use in bright daylight due to better display visibility. The only thing I feel I sacrificed is the touchscreen itself. The touchscreen units do offer a better Pandora experience without needing to remember what button does what etc.. but for general listening I find this unit sufficient. I don't plan on building stations or doing much thumbs up while driving my truck anyway. I will say that a big touchscreen is annoying at night and this single DIN DEH-X8600BH is easy on the eyes at night since you can tailor the colors and brightness to your tastes. Also, this unit adds HD radio (Clear FM!!) and a removable front panel, and that makes parking at the mall a bit easier to me since nobody is scoping out whats in my truck. I am an android user and I wanted Blue tooth for phone calls and Pandora, this head unit works well for that and I found the controls to be logical and somewhat intuitive.It offers all of the functionality you need to control Pandora, but I doubt I will bother remembering how to use all of the multifunction buttons. Calls are clear and set-up was easy. Once you play with it for an hour it all of the controls make more sense. I have not had much success using the USB cable to play music from my HTC phone, but to be honest I just use a big thumb drive and when the stereo is turned on it's nearly instant. I prefer BT for Pandora,I dont like plugging in. The thumb drive just stays stashed away and has no real value to a would be thief. Scrolling through the artists list and songs while looking at the display is fairly straight forward.Just scroll with the volume button and then press it to make a song start. While playing one set of buttons skips to next/previous track, another skips to next/previous folder/artist. Between the 8 gig thumb drive, HD radio and Pandora I have not even had a chance to use the CD player, go figure. It has a good amp inside it also, it really has made me rethink adding an amp for the main channels, even in my noisy 7.3 powerstroke SD truck I don't think I will bother. The display itself has many color options and brightness settings, that's a big deal to me. I set it to green so it is legible at night without being overbearing, but many color choices are available. I have already recommended this unit to people, for the money its kinda awesome!

Best Radio Made So Far from 2014 Line and $$ Friendly :)

March 7, 2014

Everything about this unit is beyond great.. crystal clear sound coming from the amps due to the 4v Pre-Out this unique unit has to offer.. Super USER FRIENDLY ... love the little antenna extension its built with.. there are some cars out there where the antenna may run a little too short and just this having having that extension helps it a lot.. also like that it has full control of Pandora and Music thats stored into my phone very detailed Info comes through. the real only thing that lacks is just that it only has memory for upto 3 devices :\ .. it can be used with apple,android or tablets as well but other then that i really dont care too much about being limited to 3 its not a big deal for me . other then that SUPERB HEADUNIT!

Good sounding product, lacks useful buttons

March 6, 2014

It's a great sounding unit and seems to do it's job. However, it would be nice to have a few extra options, like a mute, pause and play button. All three and some are found on the remote which to me doesn't make sense why they would put on the remote and not the unit. A lot of times the remote isn't the most convenient to use. I have hard enough time looking for my TV remote. The last thing I need is to have to search for my head unit remote while driving just to pause the music. Another thing that bothers me is the instructions provided. It's like reading an engine repair manual. They give you every little detail but it's hard to understand. It would be nice if they would send a quick start guide that gives you all the basics like most electronic manufacturers do now days.
