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 Indicator
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.
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
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.

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

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 Audio Input

Decent Deck

January 19, 2015

Being the top tier DVD-less double din Pioneer puts out right now, it still falls within the same category as the others. IE.... it plays clean, functions well, but still lacks a bit on the EQ. It would be nice to see the addition of parametric with more center frequencies if they're going to stick with a 5 band EQ. That, or a wider range EQ would make this unit at least appear better than it's predecessors. Currently it's not enough to really change the sound to accommodate the vehicle. Would have been nice to add an EQ adjustment without having to go through the menu as well.

The crossovers are decent enough to protect drivers while getting the sound between front & sub in unison. The selections of frequencies are sparse, but the option of slopes is a plus. Had no problem there.

The screen easily washes out in sunlight adding to already cumbersome menu unless you choose some odd color.

Other than that, it has the usual Pioneer sound & performance... Still better than before with 6 preouts, but it leaves you wanting a bit more since you've spent more than the lesser units. The only way I bought this unit was because of Sonic's lower price plus the free gear for installation. Other than that I would have considered some other brand.

Everything works great. When comparing how the Bluetooth phone function works compared to a Kenwood head unit I bought a few months ago, this was half the price and works so much better. The factory settings worked perfectly.
It was installed in a Saturn S-Series and I was impressed on how much better it sounded with the stock speakers and then was blown away after installing some Infiniti XB's in the rear.

Nice Head unit with good features..

June 28, 2015

I recommend this unit because it has lots of features like separate front .rear and sub pre-amp out puts unlike the 7200 model..Bluetooth has great range and the unit has very crisp clean sound which even made the factory speakers sound much better...Only thing i wish it would do is mute when the center dial is pushed like my JVC does in my truck...it has mute but just not on the big center dial...:(

That.s not a deal breaker by no means ,if your looking for a good unit you can't go wrong with this one ,lots of color choices for the face to match any vehicle

The head unit for the sound quality and features. A technician told me only buy Pioneer for your cars, they last without issues. I also have series D speakers for years and always appreciate the lively punch of these. Enjoy!

Will this unit let me use the usb to play music from my galaxy s4 and control it from the head unit?
A shopper on Apr 29, 2015
Best Answer: Yes, you can play music, skip, repeat, etc. and charge your phone via the USB.

You can NOT control your phone via the head unit, using the USB

However, you CAN control almost all features of your phone through the head unit via the Bluetooth connection very well.

When you connect the head unit to your phone via bluetooth, it will allow full music playback, skip, repeat, etc functions.
Pandora play automatically works from your head unit via bluetooth too.
Also, you can access your phone book, send and receive calls, etc from the head unit with Bluetooth.

Not only does it work great with the Samsung, it also works great with Apple iOS products.

hello I have a 2004 ford mustang with mach 460 system in it. I want to change stereo to a new double din. Are the wiring kits available to plug straight in without cutting wires so it retains original connectors?
Rocky W on Oct 5, 2015
Best Answer: If you put your specs in for your vehicle the website will suggest what you need (wire harness) From my memory, a Mach stereo has amplifiers built into the speaker. That should be really the only difference. You could always go on to crutch field website to get a 2nd opinion.

Does this unit have a dash controlled mute button on the unit itself?
Can the display color be changed? (I don't mean the button color)
Joe B on Jan 24, 2015
Best Answer: I don't believe it has a quick mute on the unit, only via remote. And both the outer unit colors and the lcd+ 6 buttons change color, the 1-6 numbered buttons will always match the lcd screen's color, and the rest of the lit head unit is another (or matching if you wish)

Does the mic hook up separate from the input on the front, or do you have to disconnect your music aux and plug in the mic to make/receive a phone call??
John JR R on Apr 24, 2016
Best Answer: Hi John,

We are glad that NO manufacturer engineers a stereo in the manner that you believe this one is =] , that would be very inconvenient. To your point, the microphone hooks up to the BACK of the stereo, into the proprietary "MIC" input. It isn't easy to see from the pictures, but it is there.

Does the Pioneer FH-X820BS unit come with a compatible wiring harness for a 2002 4 door ford explorer without subwoofer or do I have to purchase that separate?
A shopper on Feb 3, 2015
Best Answer: Hello,

We at SonicElectronix set up the order with the Vehicle Specific Accessories. Obviously Pioneer has not idea what vehicle their product is going in, so it does NOT "come with a compatible wiring harness" . The website is designed to show you these accessories, and answer your question. Simply add the headunit to your cart, enter your vehicle information when prompted, and allow the accessories to be added along with the headunit. Said accessories is what is needed to properly install the headunit.
