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.
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.
2.5 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.
7-Band iEQ
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.
98 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

Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
Yes
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.

Dual Zone
Dual zone means the stereo is capable of playing multiple audio or video sources between two separate locations.

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

Hi-Res Audio Compatible
This feature refers to if the product is capable of Hi-Res Audio (HRA) playback.

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.
No
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.

None
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.

Expandability Features

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.

November 9, 2011

I was looking around for a headunit for months. Decided on the JVC KD-NX5000 for its numerous features and accesabilty, but to my dissmay, it had been discontinued from every website google took me to... except one, Sonic Electronix. I have used them in the past and was happy with the products and service... but this was a refurbished, discontinued item which was (way less money than new) still a chunk of money. NO Problems, working and physical condition were very good. I recommend this unit to anyone who likes ALOT of bang for the buck!

Awesome radio! Fits the bil perfectly for my single din space

December 12, 2011

It was easy to install not complicated. Love the radio. It does not have touch screen but that is ok with a small screen it would have been hard anyways. But with the remote I just move the cursor and am very fast at it now. I would have loved to get a 7" screen in my car but with the single din I was limited. I really wanted the navigation and DVD in my car so I tried this radio out. The screen is small compared to a 7" but you can actually watch a movie on this! I hooked up the handbrake wire to the ground so I can have the DVD playing while i am driving. The Navigation works great, is it the best? No It is not... but I don't use it that much and when i have it does the job just fine. If your one of the Apple or BMW geeks which nothing is ever good enough for you go back to where ever you came from. Considering the restrictions in space JVC packed alot of stuff into the radio and I am very happy... I have a 2 seater SLK so my daughter can watch her DVD's fine but if you have a 4 seater I can't attest to being able to see it from the rear but I am sure you could if you sit in the middle the screen is bigger than you think. For the price i love this radio. Oh yeah I love watching the cursor for the car in the navigation mode, I was in the parking garage and it was cool the cursor would turn everytime I turned the wheel in the parking garage.

I bought this a year ago from here, refurb for the same price you see now. Everything works and works well my friend bought his couple years before me but he got it for like $1000!! i payed a lot less, haha. i love it, it can do anything you can think of. i wish i could update the gps tho, it has 2006 i think maps and i can't figure it out i have tried searching for a way. i mean it still works, just sometimes it will get confused espeically on new or changed roads, that is when you just have to know your surroundings some or click entire street and then just look for the number, if the number doesnt show because it is new, or w/e, conufusing you?? sorry.. haha just buy this!! unless u got money for newer one, then go for it.
i want an ipod classic 160gb tho cause i am always deleting music off the built in 24gb, but 24gb is a lot for your average human, most ipods are 2-4-8-16-24-32-160 pretty much so it does it's job, i just listen to everything and have artists full libraries...

Great deal for Single-DIN navi

September 21, 2011

I have a 1st gen (96-00) Sebring Convertible, which is 1.5 DIN and won't accommodate a flip-out scree unit easily.

This looks to be the only offering out there for single-din navigation... and it is actually discontinued. I shopped for several weeks after my CD changer died and I was unable to order a new replacement and finally settled on this.

Sonic is awesome as usual, their shipping was a little slow... but this was worth waiting for and is definitely worth the price. The hard drive is great (takes the place of my changer). The navigation software is the same you'll find in other headunits and you'll likely always be able to buy map updates.

DVD/DivX playback is great... especially with the remote. The controls take the learning curve to a whole new level... but it is totally understandable given the simplicity of the faceplate.

I actually came back to order a second unit and decided to write this review.

horrible screen and customer service

August 28, 2011

Its quite possible that this is a great head unit, however, 6 weeks after I bought it, the screen started blinking and changing colors like there was a bad connection somewhere. After removing and reinstalling the device to try and find an issue, I contacted sonic electronix multiple times, but they would not assist me in replacing the product because I was 2 weeks past my 1 month warranty.

Porsche perfect

February 1, 2011

I installed this unit myself in my 1992 Porsche 968 where I only had room for a single din unit. The install was easy, although you do have to hook up the speed sensor cable which I did behind the speedometer. The GPS works great and the screen is quite big enough. While I was at it, I installed a backup camera so now when I shift into reverse, I get a rear view on the display. You can also switch to rear view while you are driving forward to see who is following you. All in all, a great unit.

JVC KD - NX 5000 - S2000 perfect. single din navi.

March 20, 2011

The bad and the good.
Bad:
The order took several days to ship from Sonic. While the actual player and face look new, some of the other parts like the navigation antenna and harness were warn. The user interface is painful. It'll take you a couple minutes to input an address. Options seem to disappear and reappear. Also, the navigation is difficult to install since you have to tie into speed sensors and reverse cables. The satellite and blue-tooth options are pricey.
Good:
The price on the refurbished unit is excellent. The sound quality is decent. The navigation screen is just big enough to actually use and works well. The Hard disc drive works phenomenally. Changing songs is instant. If you have a sports car like mine (S2000) and don't have space for a double din or CD storage, and absolutely must have navi, then this is definitely the unit for you.

Why did I wait so long to buy this?

March 30, 2009

My installer actually advised me to buy a refurbished unit because as he said, "anything that can go wrong has been repaired already". I have found this to be true. I saved hundreds and have had absolutely no problems with this unit.
If you're stuck with a car that will only allow for a single din unit, this is it. If you're like me and have an older car, the other options with the flip out screens might block a vent or hit your shifter. I've got an 1988 Porsche 911 and the addition of the technology to my car is great. The single din application has a nice clean look to it.
The screen is plenty big enough, even for a movie. This is the first GPS I've owned so I have nothing to compare it to. For a first timer like myself though, I found it pretty easy to get the hang of. I haven't entered a location yet that it didn't know.
The controls are easy to use and the radio and CD features are as good as you'd expect them to be. I removed my disc changer that was taking up precious trunk space with the notion of recording all my discs onto the MP3. This is nice in theory but would take way too long. Instead I just use it as a convenience. If I've got a disc in and I really like a certain song, I record it into the memory. Instead I recommend the ipod adapter which my installer put in the glove box. This is my favorite feature and it is easily controled right through the head unit.
Between the GPS and the infinite amount of music available with this unit, I enjoy my weekend drives more than ever.

Best single din radio ever made

December 20, 2008

I couldn't get a double din radio to fit into my car, but I wanted a radio with integrated gps, so I got this one. The fact that I can store all of the music that I have in my computer by copying the cd's is awesome. There are only two downsides to this radio. One is that the gps is slightly outdated, so new roads aren't there and the second one is that even though the radio reads the cd's name, when you record it it has no name, so you have to input every single name. With those two minor things, everything else is great and I would definitely buy this radio again.

Awesome Head Unit!

December 20, 2008

I love the fact that it has everything you'd want in a single unit. Yes the screen is small but in my pickup it more than big enough and doesn't block any vents. My kids even love the screen for DVDs. As a bonus, it has a great sound as well.

March 16, 2011

I installed this unit in 1993 Mercedes 600 sec where I only had room for a single din unit. The install was not that easy but, although you do have to hook up the speed sensor cable which I did behind the speedometer. The GPS works great and the screen is quite big enough. While I was at it, I installed a backup camera so now when I shift into reverse, I get a rear view on the display. You can also switch to rear view while you are driving forward to see who is following you. All in all, a great unit

Great Head Unit

October 25, 2007

This head unit is great! Install was fairly easy to just get the radio and music going. To get DVD playback and the navigation system working I would suggest taking it to a professional to do, unless you are a pro at installing audio equipment. You have to tap into your speed signal lead that goes to your speedometer which can be a pain in the butt to do. Other than that the controls on the head unit are very easy to use, the remote is awesome, and I'm finding more and more features everyday!
