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.

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.
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.
3 Pairs (Front, Rear, and Mono-Subwoofer)

Monitor Screen Features

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.

Good value for the price

April 10, 2015

Want to give my car a stereo upgrade and this did the trick. Shipping was as expected. It lacks some features like a built in eq and iPhone doesn't work via USB,but I just use a flash drive so I don't have a bunch of cords hanging from my dash. Easy install as well I recommend buying the tool kit dash kit and wiring harness saves a lot of work and looks great. Overall I'm satisfied.

terrible reception

October 27, 2015

The radio reception is terrible I listen to a station that came in perfect with my factory radio. The volume fades in and out while driving and is annoying to the point where I just shut it off. It was suggested I install a power antenna it only made the reception worse. The only redeeming quality was the cd player it sounded and worked fine. I have put my factory radio back in and hope to return this unit. My suggestion is if you want an nice looking cd player for a decent price buy it but don't bother if you like to listen to the radio.

It fit in my 2002 Nissan frontier perfectly, did not need the trim items, but did need the harness kit and was very easy to hook up and it sounds great. still not sure what or how all the features work but I am an old gentleman and not up to date on all this new tech.

Doesn't Bootup Correctly

March 9, 2016

Nice looking unit, with good features. One thing I don't like is that it doesn't show the album artwork. My main issue with this unit is that it loads correctly about 50% of the time and I've only had it installed for about a week. Sometimes I get a bunch of lines going across, other times the only thing that shows up on the screen is the wallpaper. The third issue I had was that the display was offset only displaying a quarter of the screen. To correct this I have to shutdown the unit and restart it a few times. At one point I had to restart the car. When it actually works its nice and loud.

ace_de_chef on Dec 17, 2015

Best Answer: Use the Vehicle fit feature on the site and if it's compatible with your vehicle. You'll have to buy the wiring harness for your vehicle at a auto parts store and the wires that come with the Boss unit will connect just fine.

jamey s on Jan 26, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

It appears that none of our customers have answered your question, so we will; Your vehicle will accommodate a Double Din headunit, like the BV9356, using the provided Scosche KA2071B dash kit . Be aware, your installer will likely slightly modify the kit to accommodate the headunit. No such accommodation is needed if you chose a manufacture like Sony, Pioneer, JVC, etc.. ("A-List Vendors")

do I need to purchase anything more to get this to work with my steering wheel controls?
Blayne P on Dec 28, 2014
Best Answer: Hello Blayne,

All headunits will require a Steering Wheel Control Retention Module, in order to retain the feature. In most cases, we would suggest the Axxess ASWC-1, but this manufacture has not confirmed compatibility with their headunits. Due to their precarious nature, we suggest contacting a Tech to confirm compatibility . This lack of information is why our website does not specify SWC compatibility.

No. In fact, GPS isn't mentioned on the headunit's product page, so we are to assume it doesn't. Below is a link to the GPS Headunit Category Page;
