    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.
    20 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.
    1 Pair (Switchable Rear/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.
    No
    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.
    2.5 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.
    3-band parametric 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.

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

    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
    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.

    I needed Bluetooth for my Infiniti G20 and it works great. It connects better than my Alpine 148BT. For the price, well worth it. Get it if you need a simple radio with Bluetooth.

    cool tunes

    February 3, 2015

    I bought this for my 1991 Volvo 240se to replace a poorly functioning cassette with a bad radio. I mostly listened to my iPod using an FM transmitter with the usual problems-changing stations as we travel to keep a clear frequency, sound fading in & out etc. Well, I have to say, installing my new JVC was a bit more of a job than I had thought at first but It was well worth the effort! The factory unit has an amp hidden behind the center console that had to be removed and I ended up pretty much rewiring the rear speakers after the supplied plug adapter failed to fit so the entire job took about five times as long as I had hoped. I replaced the stock speakers with 4" speakers from Sonic and have to admit the sound is beautiful. even as is. I plugged my patch cords into the back of the JVC and routed them back where I can add my 500W amp and add a pair of boxes in the way-back to pull out for parties at the beach etc. I also used B10 replacement bulbs from SuperBright LED's to convert my dash lights to blue and match the new stereo while I was at it. End result of all this work-the unit sounds great, pairs up with my iphone quickly every time I turn it on, works great with the iPod through USB, the remote is simple and easy to use, all things considered I found it to be an excellent receiver. I cannot speak to the iPhone call quality since I'm a childless recluse and nobody ever calls me but I'm betting it works as well as everything else did! So, long story short, this is a great unit, looks and sounds good and I found customer service going out of their way to help me so I give them 5 stars all around!

    Bought this head unit after doing much research. I am using this head unit for my android tablet in dash installation. I wanted something that would not have to be exposed all the time. I installed this in the back of my dash behind my tablet connected my tablet through Bluetooth and used the jvs smart media app to control the stereo through my tablet. Great so far

    March 7, 2015

    Works good, looks good, bluetooth is great especially if you have people who ride with you regularly who like to play stuff from their devices. no issues except the two power wires were reversed so it forgot the settings when I turned off the car. switched them and it works great. Come to think of it that may have been a default with the harness adapter i bought with it.

    Pretty Good

    September 29, 2014

    I'd say its a pretty good stereo overall. Good radio quality, don't really use it cause I installed three tens in the trunk and the neon is a boppin lol. All of the features work pretty smoothly, only problem I've had so far is that my Bluetooth will sometimes not work. I'll be playing music and pause it to do something and then press play but it won't work but then turn it back on and reconnect it. Definitely worth the price and I recommend it to anyone that's just wanting Bluetooth for a cheap price.

    Has all the good features you would expect. Bass and treble along with the built in eq settings are a bit lacking but with a bit of fiddling it sounds great.
    Mated to my iphones well and phone calls are good but takes a few minutes to find each other after power on.
    Pandora only works through BT setting but still has all controls once you launch the app but even then still wont sync with JVC Pandora setting, no biggie.
    For music I got a low profile 32 gig usb 2.0 drive, made sure it was formatted to FAT32 and loaded 19 gigs on it and it takes 30 seconds to read it and start playing.
    Saw a Youtube review that the guy was controlling his unit through an app but I cannot find which JVC app that was. Maybe he gave the wrong model number?

    Best Answer: I think the 2000 Chevy is a double din stereo so you'll need the install kit for a single din (the new one) stereo to fill the dash of a double din. The install kit comes with the specific truck plug wiring that you'll need to go from your trucks stock wiring to the radio wiring. You will have to connect the wires together with some butt connectors but it's very easy and comes with easy to read instructions.
