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
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.

40 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.
14 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)
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.
10-Band
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.

Multiple Colors
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

Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
Yes
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.
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
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.

Front 3.5mm A/V Input

really nice unit

December 11, 2014

This is a really nice receiver if you don't need a CD player. I haven't used a CD player in years. Sound quality is great and I love the built in 10 ban EQ. I Have been a Alpine fan for years and I can say this unit is just as good or better in ways. It looks great and easy to use. I run Pandora, google maps and make phone calls though my Samsung galaxy S4 with no problems.

Better than Expected

January 12, 2015

I have always been a Kenwood/Pioneer fanboy, but when it came to a unit for my daughter's 2001 Buick LeSabre there were no Kenwoods/Pioneer units that had the features I knew she would want at a price I could afford as this was a Christmas gift. I saw the Jensen and was surprised at the features available for the price. One feature was what it DIDN'T have: A CD/DVD mechanism (who actually uses CDs anymore). The install went fine, and paired with the Metra ASWC-1 and the Metra GMOS-05 the interface to the GM data bus was easy. The Jensen sounded good relative to the price and given the existing factory speakers, as good as any Kenwood Exelon would sound without external amps and better speakers and a sub.

The interface with the steering wheel control was a little tricky since the Jensen diagram was incorrect and the Metra instructions were right.

We used the SD card (32G) and it loads much quicker than my Kenwood and has a bright screen that displays well in daylight. The downside is that it doesn't sense when the lights are on to dim the display automatically (although there are 3 brightness settings).

Not sure about the reliability since we have only had it a few weeks, but so far, no firmware issues. Bluetooth integration with an LG p769 worked great and music streaming was without issue. Phone call integration was good too and worked as expected.

For the price and available features, I would purchase again.

Awesome stereo!

March 7, 2015

I bought this for my daughters Toyota RAV4 and is awesome! It not only has a bunch of great features but it improved the sound quality of the factory sound system immensely! Bluetooth connections are strong and reliable and all 4 of us have our iPhones synch'd with it. Her favorite feature is the backup camera I installed with it! Highly recommend!

Jensen DMX 5020

December 31, 2014

I'm pretty pleased with the Jensen DMX 5020. The radio has been dependable with blue tooth, music and the iPod. The real beauty here
is the extras Sonic Eletronix provides. Wiring harness, dash kit and adapters were included with my radio and that's a real value as I don't like chasing down parts. All in all I'm pretty pleased with my purchase.

I have had this head unit for a little over a month now and have really enjoyed it. You can reorder the apps on the main menu, hear voice directions through your speakers, the bass works great, bluetooth connectivity is instant, and the picture quality of the screen is perfect. I am very happy with this product.

Jensen DMX5020

July 7, 2015

Installed the Jensen deck into a 2005 Ranger. Pleased with the results, sound quality is good, have not had a lot of time to try all of the bells & whistles, but the Bluetooth operates well and the screen resolution is surprisingly good with the backup camera installed. Would be nice to have the backup camera automatically come up in reverse, but I guess something I can live with.

Good head unit for the money

October 24, 2015

Plenty of features for the price! Bluetooth works well with my Samsung Galaxy s3. The menu structure is well thought out and doesn't require much reading of the manual as most functions are intuitive. I have played music and movies off of an SD card and it all works well although song title information doesn't always appear. I believe this is due to my data not being formattted correctly, and not a problem with the head unit. Contrary to what online retailers claim, I did NOT need a SWC adaptor for the controls on my 2002 honda accord. False signals can be ignored by setting certain keys to 'undefined'.
Overall I am pleased with the product and hope that it holds up over time. I will probably install a screen protector soon to protect the unit.

Not bad for a simple touchscreen receiver

October 11, 2015

This Jensen unit was a nice surprise. I needed something simple and didn't need a DVD/CD player so this fit my needs - it includes USB, an SD slot, Bluetooth - what else would I need? It accepts a video in for an Aux DVD player and also a video in for a backup camera. The Bluetooth works well - the rear backup cam input works well (more on this later) and it has 4V preouts that I will be using shortly.

Pros - 4V pre-outs. Bluetooth, USB, SD slot. iPhone works flawlessly. Rear camera input. EQ! :)

Cons - sometimes the screen is a little slow to react - but not incredibly slow to be annoying. The backup camera doesn't go on automatically when in reverse. I have to touch the camera icon first. Admittedly I haven't researched if I can make it work automatically yet but simply hooking up the camera doesn't seem to be enough. Very limited settings.

Overall a great buy. I can't wait to hook up my amp and drive some new components and sub.

Cheaper double din. Works great though for the simple task of hooking up to a system and playing music through an iPod or Bluetooth. Little laggy and freezes at times but will catch up and do the commands you wanted it to do. Id recommend this to someone looking for a cheap double din that gets the job done and doesn't have money for those nice $250+ headunits

For the touch screen and the Jensen name. Also a great price!!!
Janelle L on Dec 4, 2015
Wanted an inexpensive but name-brand system with Bluetooth and an SD card slot. Don't care about CDs or watching videos or backup cameras. Would have liked to get one with GPS, but they got too expensive to justify and the ones that weren't too far out of my price range still had reviews indicating that they had glitches. I'm expecting this one to be relatively no-frills but have good functionality and pleasing sound.

I have a 2000 monte carlo LS and I neeed my radio to access features for my car, would this radio allow me to access these features?
Christian D on Jun 25, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Jeremy,

The OEM features, whatever they may be (you didn't specify), are retained by the vehicle specific harness, not so much the headunit. Please give our Sales Team a call to gather more information and to provide a more accurate response.

will I be able to keep my sirius radio with this unit?
Fallyn G on Aug 5, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

Assuming you are referring to an OEM Equipped Sirius feature, no headunit has the ability to retain that feature. That job falls upon the Harness associated/available for your specific vehicle. We suggest checking with our sales team (phone number at the top of the page) and/or Metra/Pac-Audio. Typically harnesses that can retain the feature, require that the headunit have an Auxiliary input, preferably RCA and preferably in the back of the headunit (obviously =])

IF, however, you are referring to a universal car-kit type Sirius Radio, that would have to be determined by you. Typically those require a 3.5mm or RCA auxiliary input, which this headunit has the former on the face.

I'm having reception issues with this product. I put one in a Toyota Solara, with its own ground, and I still can hardly hear AM at all and FM is very intermittent, especially when you drive near power lines. I also put the same unit in my Tacoma because of the good reviews and it has the same issues but not to the extreme. Any ideas??
Mark M on May 16, 2015
Best Answer: I have mine in a 2001 f150 and the reception is very good. It sounds like you have an antenna connection problem. Antennas can be hard to diagnose. You might want to try an all new one to check. Can always return it if that is not the problem

what is the wiring harness?
A shopper on Mar 1, 2015
Best Answer: A wiring harness is a connector/wiring combination that allows you to connect your car audio unit to the vehicle. When the existing factory radio is removed the connector that went to the radio is connected to the new car audio unit using the wiring harness that you bought along with the new unit. A wiring harness is not included with the new unit because a wiring harness is different for each make/model of car so you need to specify what car the new audio unit will be installed in to make sure you get the wiring harness with the correct mating connector. Having the correct wiring harness keeps you from cutting off the connector that was used to connect the factory radio to the car electrical system. In some vehicles (must notably GMs) the wiring harness also contains active components that interface your new audio unit with the vehicles data buss. In this case, you cannot simply wire the new audio unit to the car's system because the car relies on the data from the removed radio for certain functions. The active wiring harness emulates the missing functions to make the car think that the original factory radio is still installed.

Can you change the background on the screen?
A shopper on May 26, 2015
Best Answer: Yes. They have around 5 different backgrounds to choose from. I have not attempted to add my own as I am unsure if there is a user defined background option. I don't see that on my stereo.

Will this unit work with the iPhone 6? More specifically if it is connected via the USB to lightening? I'm pretty sure pairing via Bluetooth will work fine so I'm not worried about that. Thanks!
Steve R on Apr 4, 2015
Best Answer: I use my 5S with it just fine for iPod functionality, pandora or spotify. So the 6 or 6+ should have no functional difference. That's either through usb or Bluetooth. Album art is only displayed when using USB.

The DMX5020 is still rather deep, despite the lack of a disc drive. Unfortunately, most of the current headunits are about the same size.

How does this unit work with Androids ? I mainly use Spotify and would like to use this with Bluetooth - can I control the app from the Jensen screen ? If not, does the song info show up on the Jensen screen ? In the worst case, I assume the Spotify audio will come through on the cars stereo.

Will the Android controls and song info show up on the Jensen screen if I'm connected ONLY via USB ? Do I need the AUX cable at all to listen to my Android ? (besides BT)

Thanks !
Andrew R on Apr 21, 2015
Best Answer: Via Bluetooth u can play and skip songs but it will not display song info for Spotify. It only displays your phones name. Ecample mine says : Nexus 5. Its a great unit for the price.
