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.

Security Code
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.

60 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.
1 Center Output
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.
2 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 Equalizer with 9 preset tone curves
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.

Full Color
Button Color
Refers to the color of the physical buttons on the unit.
Blue
CD Signal-to-Noise
CD Signal-to-Noise Ratio is a key specification that is often overlooked by newbies. The CD S/N Ratio measures how well the CD player silences background noise. Higher ratings in decibels (dB) indicates less noise, and generally a cleaner signal.
80 dB
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.
No
Number of Front USB Inputs
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.

1 Set of Rear RCA A/V Inputs
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.
Yes
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.
Monitor Angle Adjustment

Backward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt backwards so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, this type of pivot means that the bottom of the screen stays stationary while the top of the screen retracts. On Double DIN units this means that the bottom of the screen slides forward while the top of the screen moves down, resulting in a backwards angle tilt.

Forward:
This means that the unit is able to tilt forward so that the proper viewing angle can be achieved. On single DIN flip out monitors, a forward pivot keeps the bottom of the screen stationary while the top of the screen moves forward. On select Double DIN units, a forward tilt is sometimes referred to as a reverse tilt. The bottom of the screen remains in the same position while the top of the screen moves forward.

Left/Right Angle (Horizontal):
Some monitors allow the display to be rotated to the left or right in order to have the best viewing angle possible.

Slide In/Out:
A feature mainly found in select Kenwood units. It allows the entire screen to slide in and out. This is different from a forward/backward tilt in that the entire screen moves forward or backwards as opposed to just the top or bottom.

Backward
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.
Device Mirroring
This is the ability to "mirror" a device's screen (i.e SmartPhone or Tablet) onto the headunit's display. Please check with the manufacture's website for updated information regarding compatibility and cables required for proper performance.

for the price you cant beat it

March 18, 2010

Have had this in my Expedition for about 6 months and only had a few minor issues with it. The good is that it plays all kinds of media, has ipod hookup and interface already without an adapter, and internal bluetooth. Also has AUX inputs for whatever you can come up with that needs a screen. The touch screen has a very slight delay but it works almost as well as the factory one in my 07 TL. Film quality has been very good the few times I have watched DVDs on it, and it pushes plenty of power to the speakers. With everything included in this package I could not find a better value at the time, it installed very clean into the dash (looks almost stock) and it has been a great unit.
The bad is that the ipod interface is not the best/most intuitive but it is usable, just wish you could shuffle music or search for artists/songs instead of going through them all. The upside to this is that the unit has a 3.5mm jack input and even comes with the cord so I just use my ipod through the AUX and it works great, sound quality almost the same as thru the interface.
The CD and DVD player takes a while to read the cd's but this seems to be a trend with all screens. Plays audio cds and data cds with no problem, burnt or original.
The navigation has been great but don't plan on enjoying music too much while its navigating, it pretty much constantly dings and talks to you and I haven't figured out how to make it talk less, only to shut off the sounds completely. This isnt necessarily a bad thing because you definitely wont miss any turns and if you do it recalculates quickly. It has gotten confused once since I had it and took me to a previous input when I was trying to go to a new one, but removing the sd card and replacing it fixed this.
The bluetooth also works great 90% of the time, but for some reason every time my brother calls me he cant hear a thing, but for everyone else it has worked fine as long as the windows are up and its not pouring.

August 16, 2009

Good product overall! I have noticed some problems from time to time. 1st problem I have is a weak radio signal when it should be strong. I solved this with a signal booster. 2nd problem I have come across is the sd cards. Every once in a while it will read bad card. You then have to take it out and put it back in. Everything else works fantastic.

GOOD BUY!!!

June 3, 2009

Overall I would recommend this product to any one. This head unit has many features to offer. The DVD quality is good and the Navigation works pretty well. The bluetooth feature is extraordinary and connects to pretty much any phone bluetooth capable phone. I-pod Interface could be a little better and the equalizer could also be better. Only feature that it is missing is Satellite radio but i do good without it seeing that i use my I-pod 90% of the time. I installed it myself and installation was fairly easy. If this is your first In-dash buy, then this is the most "bang for the buck"

Awesome unit

April 15, 2009

i put this in my car about 4 or 5 months ago, and it works very well, i am very happy with it. every once in awhile the navigation freaks out, like it will say it doesn't have an sd card in it, when it does, but all you have to do is pull out the sd card and put it back in. besides that, it works really well. i love having my nintendo 64 hooked up in my car. it has all the features i need. The bluetooth is really handy now that they have the no cell phone laws.

Easy to install and great options - Recommend

March 18, 2009

I have to say that I bought this product because I was low-balling the model for the price. I knew that it might lack some of the style and sophistication as compared to Pioneer or Kenwood. But after my install yesterday, I have to say that I am extremely satisfied and pleased at all it can do for the price.

The unit, out of the box, is solid and well made. Well packaged, each cable individually wrapped and enough RCA plugs to preamp every output. The multi-zone feature of letting my daughter watch a DVD in the back seat, while my wife and I listen to the radio up front is pretty cool (separate LCD and headphones needed to attach to the included jacks).

The navigation is good, even though the graphic capabilities aren't as good as the big guys. The voice directions are calm, complete and the voice is soothing (I was expecting a Chinese accent. :) .

This is my second Dual radio. My 1st is still in my Mazda Protege. This one went in our Honda Element.

My only complaints: The bezel plate didn't look that great in the dash of my Element, but that was a strange fit anyway, since Elements are very simplistic. The iPod features screen is a little cramped, but I am happy it can control my iPod (iPhone actually). The Bluetooth works well and it can access my "address book", but only my recent calls and missed calls.

All in all, I like it and I would buy again. Thanks, SonicElectronix for dropping in the wiring harness too. I would buy from YOU again most of all. Great pre and post sales support as well as email follow-ups. Thanks.

Dual XDVDN8290

October 10, 2008

This is an all-in-one unit. If looking to upgrade,then this is the unit to own. I've owned this DUAL XDVDN8290 for just about a month. Everything works great. The bluetooth is very easy to set up and use. The DVD player with the CD combo is great for the kids, the IPOD is easy to operate as well, using the remote or the unit touch screen makes the IPOD priceless. The NAV system is right on the money. Just Add home location and the POI will take over from there. Will upgrade with headrest monitors next. SonicElectronix was a big help with the wiring harness and antenna adapter,also added the back-up camera with the steering wheel control. What more could you ask for. This is the NAV/DVD/CD to have. Compared with the other brands this DUAL can hold its own. The other brands have the add-on costs for bluetooth and ipod connections. Don't wait, this is the unit to own.

Well Worth It!!!!

July 28, 2009

I don't usually rate products, but I am compelled to rate this one! I looked everywhere for this type of unit while trying to stay with a reasonable price. THIS WAS IT!!! The price is incredible considering what it offers. Many say the Dual name is weak; I even was told by an installer it wouldn't last 3 months. She was so wrong. The system is loud. The GPS is great. The picture quality is excellent; And the multitude of other features When I first installed it the navigational SD did not work but I reformatted it with the provided CD and it has been great since. I even made back up SD cards. I really don't have a bad comment. It was an excellent investment. I did not use the supplied harnesses. I had to purchase better ones.

Very Nice Unit

May 19, 2009

I would, and have recommended this unit to others but I caution buyers that some of the performance issues as mentioned in previous reviews with this unit are in fact true. One in particular is that the FM receiver does not pull in all the local stations clearly. In addition, the touch screen is not as sensitive as I am used to and the navigation screens are not as intuitive as other GPS navigation makers....but one can adjust.
On the more positive side, having blue tooth capability as a standard feature, input cluster for IPod and other video devices, and horizon navigation now having updates for the software (that are affordable) on this unit make this unit a good value.

Very satisfied with this unit. Has many features and options for expanding. Had some trouble with the loading mechanism, and Dual set me a brand new unit. If your looking for a lot of features, but don't want to spend a fortune, this is the unit for you.

Dual XDVDNB290

December 21, 2008

Excellent Radio . Navigation is excellent. Ipod connect works good but, it could be a little better. I have it connected to 2 12inch subs the radio handles them well but you cant fine tune them as much as pioneer head unit. Other than that i have no regrets for the purchase I made. If you want a radio with nav, ipod, bluetooth and stuff for a great price this is it.

Outstanding Device

July 14, 2008

This device is amazing and can definitely stand with the big names in car audio. I owned it for a week. The first day I tested the navigation on a 200 mile trip. Worked amazing took me straight to my destination with acurate arrival time and distance. The dvd player is awesome it allows you to hook up external monitors and input devices. The only negative I would give this radio is its Ipod control. I have a 80G Ipod and navigating through the songs is kind of a hassle. The unit sometimes plays songs other than what you pick. If you get this unit the best way to use a ipod with it is to save songs to play lists or shuffle threw all songs. Another negative about this unit is it doesn't allow you to turn off your subwoofers like some high end head units and it only has one subwoofer output jack which is not a big issue. You can buy a extension that turns that one into two output jacks.The bluetooth works good it doesn't adapt to my phones phonebook but that no big issue.It shows caller id so you can see who is calling. Overall I would give this radio a 8 on a scale of 10. I love it the few minor problems are nothing big.
