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
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.
14 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.
13 Band Graphic
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
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.
18
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
12
Radio Data System (RDS)
Receivers with Radio Data System (RDS) tuners can receive digital broadcast information about the FM radio station including program name, time and station identification. RDS enables your receiver to display text messages that many FM stations include on a sub-carrier signal within their normal broadcast signal. Some RDS tuners can even break in with traffic alerts or emergency broadcasts when you're listening to a CD.
Yes
CD-R/RW Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play finalized CD-R discs and/or CD-RW discs.
Yes
MP3 Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with MP3 files. To burn a MP3 encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
Yes
WMA Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the CD player will play discs encoded with WMA files. To burn a WMA encoded disc, use the "data" mode on your CD Recorder and finalize the session and/or CD.
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.
Yes
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

A2DP Music Streaming
The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile will wirelessly stream music and other audio from an A2DP compatible device.
Yes
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.

Nice HU & Great Price!

October 3, 2017

I really appreciate the whole experience of my purchase from Sonic Electronix. It's been a while since I did a DIY and everything went as prescribed. I am new to a BT radio so I am still working on the functionality but overall it is GREAT! SE had the best price not to mention the best deal which included the dash kit and antenna accessory. Thanks!!

Pioneer the Best

September 17, 2017

Pioneer has always performed the best of all stereo and receivers that I have ever owned. This particular one "FH-X731BT" required slight modifications to my Ford F150 Supercrew when installing, but looks great. Of course, it's a Pioneer so it also sounds great. I love all the different features. Years ago, you would need separate amps, equalizers to get good sound. This sounds great and has built in equalizer with separate memory settings for different music. It also has the separate amp outputs which I didn't use as it gets loud enough with quality sound thru my pioneer speakers. Used free tech support before install to make sure that I had right connection as I had a couple of wires that were not needed. Used the email support at night and had answer the following morning. Great product and price. Also love that support is there with answers as needed. Really like the buttons and Knob for controls. Not ready for touch screen as have to many problems getting touch screen smart phone to work while in sun. Not sure how well a touch screen stereo receiver will work in hot vehicles with sun beating on them. This stereo receiver is a good deal and a good price. My wife and I both love the quality sound.

Pioneer Double Din FH-X731BT

June 30, 2017

This Stereo has all the functionalities I need, and they all work great. The sound is superb, much better than my stock Mercury stereo. The menu may be a little too involved for my technical savvy, but through trial and error I get most everything I want. I would recommend both the looks and the quality, which at the offered price are outstanding. Even got the display to match the standard Mercury digital panel green . Good beyond expectations.

Amazing Sound

January 28, 2017

The Pioneer FH-X731BT pumps out amazingly rich sound, especially with the bass, picks up more stations than my Sienna's stock receiver, and gives additional bang for the buck by allowing the driver to access Bluetooth, charge their phone, use the speakers when making a calls, and listen to Pandora, Spotify and other popular stations. Very, very happy with this product and hope I can find one that's similar for my '05 Tundra.

Nice Radio, Lots of Features

January 11, 2017

I bought this as a Christmas gift for my niece. Let me say from the beginning that my niece is very tech challenged. When I was planning this purchase she was away at college so I had to collect the pertinent information from her over the telephone and via text message. This is pertinent to this review since most of what she told me was incorrect (starting with the model of the car it was going into). Having said that, right off the bat the installation didn't go well, the radio was too big to fit the opening. After a little judicious use of an oscillating multi tool it fit like a glove and looks like it came in the car.

As for the radio itself, once installed it worked well. Sound quality is excellent even with the crappy factory speakers (I suspect that they won't last long). Since it was not installed in my car I didn't bother with reading the user guide to check all of the features. I just did the basic setup, told her to read the user guide, and gave her the car back. As I have said she is very tech challenged but she has been able to figure out all of the functions. When I spoke to her a couple of days later she was very happy with the new radio. I also spoke to her mother to ensure that there were no issues that she did not tell me about. She is able to stream Pandora, listen to the radio, store station presets, and use her phone hands free. If she can figure out all of the functions the user guide must be more than adequate and the unit would have to be pretty user friendly.

None of the issues that I had with the installation reflect poorly on this unit. Overall, at the price point, I don't think you can beat this unit. It has an abundance of desirable features and is user friendly. I would recommend this unit for any compatible installation.

Haven't had a bad Pioneer yet. Bluetooth works perfectly, very easy to install the mic. Needed the 3 pre-amp outputs for my system. Very logical to use and set up the way you want. Easy install, great sound. Didn't need a video player so this ticked all the boxes I needed and didn't break the bank. Highly recommended.

Awesome product for anybody looking to upgrade from their factory stereo. Ive always loved the sound quality that Pioneer stereo's offer and with this unit, it is no different. The eq settings might be a little confusing to an inexperienced user but for me they really allowed me to fine tune my system to perfection. Aside from sound quality, the sleek look of this stereo is definitely a bonus. Looks great in my car and matches the interior.
