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
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.
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.
2 Pairs (Front and Rear)
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.
Yes
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.

Dot-Matrix 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.

Blue
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue

Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
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.
Yes

Please refer to the item description for more details on how dual zone works specifically to the unit you are viewing.

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.
Yes
Number of Front USB Inputs
1
Number of Rear USB Inputs
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 Audio Input

Monitor Screen Features

Touchscreen
If a unit is touchscreen capable, you can control a majority of it's functions by touching the screen.
No
MirrorLink Compatible
MirrorLink allows connectivity between a smartphone and the aftermarket car receiver. The consumer gets into the car, connects the phone with a cable, and gains access to phone applications through the car stereos controls such as navigation and steering wheel buttons. MirrorLink allows consumers to use their smartphones safely and simply, keeping eyes on the road and hands on the wheel.

Navigation Features

Map Database
This is the map database that the system uses. The map database provider supplies the digital map, as well as the Points-of-Interests, map updates, fastest routes, and many other features.
Traffic Lane Guidance
Traffic Lane guidance is a convenient feature among navigation units. It enabled the navigation unit to tell the driver which lane that they should be in at any given time. This becomes quite useful when a particular lane is needed to exit the freeway or make a necessary turn.
Navigation During Audio Playback
This feature allows the driver to listen to music while the unit is still navigating them to their destination.

Speed Display
Speed display is a feature that allows the unit to display the speed of the vehicle. Using GPS technology, this feature also assisting in determining the estimated time of arrival on compatible units.
Map Source
Maps are typically built into the navigation unit or they can be uploaded from a disc or memory card. They usually cover the United States and all or parts of Canada. Built-in flash memory maps typically respond faster than disc loaded maps.
Text-to-Speech
Text-to-Speech (TTS) converts normal text into speech. Mostly used in navigation units, text-to-speech allow the audible playback of street names, driving directions, and any other text that the driver needs to hear.
Traffic Tuner
In-dash navigation units with satellite radio have the option for a traffic tuner, also called a Traffic Message Channel. A Traffic Message Channel (TMC) is used to deliver traffic and travel information directly to the driver. When the TMC is built-in a navigation unit, it can help direct the driver to take alternative routes when traffic is bad.
Customizable POI
Customizable Points Of Interest (POI) allow the user to customize, select favorites, and add their own points of interest. This enabled the driver to get directions quickly to previously visited destination.

Expandability Features

Navigation
Built-in navigation is a convenient feature that allows the driver to receive driving directions and guidance.

Some in-dash head units are built-in with the navigation features, while others require an add on navigation box. Other navigation options include portable navigation units that you can take with you or attach to the dash of your vehicle.

Satellite Radio
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver is compatible with XM or Sirius Satellite Radio. "Optional" means while the receiver is capable of SIRIUS/XM playback and connectivity, you will still need to purchase an additional satellite tuner, adapter, and/or antenna.
HD Radio
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver is capable of receiving high-definition digital HD Radio broadcasts by either a built-in HD Radio tuner, or more commonly with the purchase of an optional HD Radio tuner box. Receivers which are HD Radio Ready generally require an additional purchase of a separate tuner.
Bluetooth Connectivity
This feature refers to whether or not the head unit is able to connect to a hands-free Bluetooth device. Head units that are Bluetooth ready typically require the purchase of an optional adapter or accessory that connects to the rear of the head unit. This optional accessory allows you to accept phone calls through your head unit and speakers. Some head units have built-in Bluetooth hands free capabilities with an included remote-mount microphone or built-in microphone.
No
A2DP Music Streaming
The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile will wirelessly stream music and other audio from an A2DP compatible device.
Steering Wheel Control Compatible
In order to retain a vehicle's factory steering wheel remote controls, a wired-remote input is needed on the aftermarket stereo.

If "Yes", then the aftermarket stereo is compatible with steering wheel remote controls. If an additional accessory is required for the steering wheel controls to work properly, a compatible piece will be listed.

CD Changer Controls
This feature signifies whether or not the receiver has the ability to control a CD Changer. If a receiver supports this function, it is usually compatible with a same-brand CD changer without the need for an extra adapter.

Bought the Boss radio as a replacement for my OEM radio in my Jeep Wrangler. Just wanted a radio without any frills cause I also wanted cheap. To my zurprise, this radio outperforms my OEM radio in my new RAM. Sound is better and it pjlls in ten times the stations that my OEM does. Very surprised by the e,tra features also like remote control, etc. Definitely got more for my buck than anticipated. Also installing was a breeze with the free installation kit I got. Would definitely recommend this product.

The installment in my car was simple.The cd player did'nt work so i called the support guys at sonic and they took care of the problem by sending me a new unit. The support was almost to good to be true......usually it is the customer trying to get in touch with the seller, but not at sonic. These guys contacted me numerous times by both e-,mail and phone calls. They were helpful and quick to resolve the problem. I did install the replacement radio and it sounds great. Thank you Sonic you guys rock!

Great Radio

March 14, 2016

I bought this for my son's car for his Birthday. His stock radio in his 06 PT Cruiser was not working properly so I saw reviews and got him this one. It is really nice and lights up blue, which matches his car. My son said the sound is really great and he is thrilled that he can plug all his electronics into it. It also comes with a remote in which he said he has not yet tried but, thinks is a really nice concept if you can memorize what button is for what. Then you never will have to take your eyes off the road to switch stations, functions, ect. Would definitely buy again!!

what door speakers should I buy for this receiver?
Ken M on Feb 27, 2015
Best Answer: Hello Ken,

Any speakers will get the job done. The 17w per channel from this headunit is a very common figure, and will suffice to run any set of speakers. Look up the sizes your vehicle needs and go from there. =]

Does this have satellite?
Mary B on Jul 5, 2016
Best Answer: No.... but the sound via the pre existing nissan sentra speakers (2004) is absolutely tremendous - great separation between the front and rear speakers.

Will I need extra equipment to install this in my 1996 Ford F 150?
KateAdams on Jan 24, 2016
Best Answer: You will need a dash kit and wire harness adapter for your specific vehicle. Sonic electronics usually includes this for free with your aftermarket head unit provided you specified your vehicle when you ordered it. At least they always have for me in the past. If I were you I would give them a call just to make sure. Also if you live close to their warehouse (Valencia, ca) you can will call it an pick it up there. That way you don't have to worry about them forgetting to include the wire harness adapter and dash kit.

Will I need any extra cover plates or brackets to install in 2006 jeep wrangler?
Robert G on Dec 5, 2015
Best Answer: I have a 2002 PT Cruiser. Not familiar with Jeep Wranglers plates or brackets. I did not need a cover plate or bracket. I had an aftermarket radio before. Just used the slot of the old radio for the new one. Sorry, good luck.

does this unit control any cd changer?
jimmy r on Jul 2, 2016
Best Answer: Well it is a CD player, if you are speaking of a stock 5 disc cd changer that is separate in you car I sincerely doubt it. Getting any after market head unit to control factory equipment such as an equalizer or cd changer is virtually impossible or at least I have never found something that did. My advise would be to ditch the cd changer and download the music to your phone. Buy a name brand head unit with decent reviews such as pioneer, Sony etc. and make sure it comes Bluetooth enabled so you can stream your music wirelessly from your cellphone. Boss is a bottom of the barrel company, I don't recommend their product (any of them).
