The Dual XDVD8183 is a single DIN in dash receiver with a retractable screen. There are a few advantages to the XDVD8183. The first is its ability to be installed in both single DIN and double DIN slots. The versatility of the XDVD8183 is also apparent in its ability to seamlessly tuck away in its single DIN chassis, protecting the screen as well as acting as a passive anti-theft deterrent. Because the unit does not require much front panel space, another great advantage is its overall larger screen than most in dash LCD monitor receivers!

Display
The unique flip-out retractable 7" LCD screen is housed in the single DIN chassis, allowing it to be installed in nearly all single DIN slots. The LCD frame is both solid and rigid, ensuring maximum longevity of the unit despite countless retraction and extension. The screen is a touchscreen capable monitor that is surprisingly bright, clear, and full of depth. Experience your movies in your vehicle theater system!

Bluetooth and iPod
The XDVD8183 features a built-in Bluetooth hands-free technology that will allow users to pair their Bluetooth capable cellular phone with the receiver. Users could then make phone calls by using the touchscreen as well as monitor call status such as reception and caller ID. In addition, there is also full support for iPod connectivity, allowing the access and control of virtually any dockable iPods (except latest generation iPhone / iPod Touch) and display an iPod interface on the 7" LCD screen.

What more you can you ask for? At such a great price, the XDVD8183 is one of the most versatile products we have in inventory, especially true with its built in Bluetooth and iPod interface. Remember that Bluetooth hands-free equipment is required for California drivers beginning July 1, 2008. So what a great way to get an all-in-one package with the XDVD8183!

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.

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.

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
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.
5 Selectable 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
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

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

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.

No
Compatible Smartphones
Some stereos work with iOS (Apple) or Android smartphone operating systems, while some stereos work with both or neither. Find out here which operating systems this stereo is compatible with.
Audio/Video Outputs
Audio/Video outputs are typically used to connect an overhead monitor to an aftermarket stereo. This is the number of A/V outputs that the item has. These outputs are usually RCA Composite cables.

RCA Composite Outputs
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.

2 Sets of Audio/Video RCA Outputs
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.
No
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.
No
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.
Yes (Built-in/Included Bluetooth Controls, Adapter and Microphone Included)
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.

No
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.
No

I would recommend this product if you want a monitor but don't want to spend to much money on one. There are few options to tune your system which is a disappointment.

where to start

February 10, 2010

ok, so i bought this unit because i've always seen good things with friends who have dual decks, i installed an 8182 in my friends truck and it works great, good reception, good pic, but bought this for the bluetooth, so here it is, the bluetooth works decent, like others say you have to speak up, but hey its a speaker phone in a car, so no big, the real problem is you cant adjust the contrast on a dvd, im in my car right now typing this, and the owners manual even says you can only adjust color and tint and contrast on ipod or camera and aux input, so for watching a movie with dark scenes, completely unusable, could just be mine, but still no adjust other than brightness, number 2, which im sure is a prob with mine and not the product, my radio stations are all fuzzy, the stereo light turns off and it sounds like crap unless your sitting still in an open parking lot, now ive swapped a couple decks in including my old uv8 and all radio works good, so its not the car, bottom line, im sure most of my problems are just mine, but if you like to fine tune your picture, (its even dark on the headrest tv's) then this is not the deck for you, go with the 8182, much better setup, why the removed the contrast control is beyond me, but thank goodness for RMA, returning this week and getting an 8182 or my money back, good luck to all of you out there

This thing is amazing.

January 26, 2010

I just got this and put it in my car today and there was not one thing wrong with it. I was even able to bypass the video safety by grounding the e-brake wire and entering a code in the unit. I have my ps2 hooked up to it and its picture is simply perfect. I would highly suggest buying the product it is more the worth the money.

Good system

November 19, 2009

I've had this head unit for over 6 months now and I really love it. The iPod hookup is great and it does charge the iPod when hooked up even though the specs say it doesn't. Bluetooth works well but you can't expect it to be perfect, you just have to speak up a bit. The only thing that can be is when your scrolling through songs with the wheel it makes a slightly annoying sound that there is no way to shut off. Overall I think this is a great headunit and would recommend it to anyone.

Deck sucks!

November 18, 2009

I bought this deck thinking i was getting great deal, turns out I was wrong. First problem I had was the screen kept cutting out I sent it back to dual and they replaced it. After a little while it stopped playing CDs it just ejects them instead I called dual and they said it was going to cost me close to 200 dollars because the warranty had just expired. Don't go with dual buy a better brand that knows how to make quality decks and someone that will work with you instead of just wanting money for it.

Great BANG for your BUCK!!!

June 30, 2009

The Dual XDVD8183 Headunit is an outstanding product for the price. The layout and display of the face when the screen is closed is very smiple yet very effective and stylish at the same time, a rare feature unless you're paying top dollar! The motorised 7" touchscreen is another additional bonus usually only seen in very expensive Headunits. I have had this product over 6 months now using it everyday and I have never had a single problem with the motorised screen (which I still use today) which came as a surprise as I've had several units in the past with motorised screens that have lasted a month or two before becoming manual pull-outs (very frustrating when you pay top $$$). The ability to not only adjust the viewing angle but also storing your prefered position and also the automatic opening (which can be enabled/disabled) and closing upon the accessory power being 'live'. The user interface is well layed out and easy to use even for the technologically impeared. The ability to control your iPod (see iPod Compatability) through the 7" touchscreen is very convenient & simply awesome. Alternatively if your iPod is not compatable you always have the option of the 3.5mm stero cable which you can plug into your iPod or any music player through the headphone jack. The additional accessories provided like RCA extension unit make thing easier for those who do not install the unit themselves as they can easily "plug & play" any RCA device without have to fish for the connection points at the rear of the unit once it is installed. The remote is great for anyone who loves to show off their sound system in the boot but still like to have the head unit at the front of the car, the remote will even work through 10mm plexiglass so perfect for that custom install. For those security concious people you have the ability to add a Security Code to the unit. The addtional features such as Bluetooth Connectivity & Rear Camera input make this unit a all-rounder. Overall I wound recommend this unit to anyone on a tight budget who wants a good bang for their buck! It's definately worth the money!!!

GREAT DVD/CD RADIO

April 12, 2009

Bought the dual xdvd8183 to install in my 39 chevy coupe hotrod, the look & layout of the buttons & radio face, when the screen was in the closed position are excellent & well thought out. The screen is super for watching dvds, the touch screen is every well layed out & easy enough for anyone to figure out in just a few minutes. Has all the options for radios 2 or 3 times the price. The dual radios are the best priced radios on the market. Would reccommand to ANYONE WANTING A GREAT HIGH END RADIO, FOR HALF THE PRICE AS A RADIO WITH THE SAME FEATURES!

March 26, 2009

I really like the ipod feature on this unit. I had an 8181 and I had to control the ipod through the actual ipod but on this one I can control it through the touch screen. Also this unit seems to be of a higher quality than my last one. My last one, the 8181, broke after about a year and it wouldnt play a cd any more but this one is still working fine after about a year. People alwayz say dual brand products are cheap and break easily but mine is still working and i will keeo buying.

Somewhat Satisfied

If you go searching for a song on your ipod too far down the list, then usually it will play a different song. The screen has alot of glare, and you cant use the scroll bar on the side to kinda ballpark search for where the song might be. Which would be nice since people usually have thousands of songs on their ipod. The only efficient way to search is to have a playlist for everything and remember what songs are where.

The display is good, but the iPod feature part of it is horrible, my alpine deck was a lot easier to find songs in my iPod...Overall I'd give it a 4 out of 5.
