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
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.

55 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.
10-Band Graphic
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.

Capacitive Touch LCD
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.

Great unit

March 19, 2017

Both this unit for my 2015 Nissan Altima S. I was really apprehensive about spending so much on this unit, but it came with several features that I desired and overall I am very satisfied with the unit. It is worth every penny.

First, the unit came with physical buttons for reaching the home menu, adjusting the volume, and switching stations/songs. While I use the steering wheel controls while driving my vehicle, I tend to use interface buttons when parked or going through a drive-thru as they offer much greater response time than the steering wheel buttons.

Second, the unit came with Apple CarPlay which allowed for greater integration with my iPhone. It also supports Android as well. The unit also comes with a USB extension cord so don't go out and buy one like I did (although I prefer the one I bought as it looks more factory). This allows for easier integration with your phone of choice.

Originally, I purchased a different unit for my car and I later returned it because it did not allow me to play music and access other menus at the same time; ie, having a favorite song play while in the EQ menu to adjust sound quality. This Sony unit allows such capabilities.

The GUI is very clean and simple, very easy to use without even having to read the manual. I was able to find my way around the settings and adjust the settings accordingly with no problems whatsoever. The switch from the Sony GUI to the iOS is fluid, quick, and seamless.

On starting the car, it takes roughly 15 to 20 seconds for the unit to enter ready mode. For me, this is not an inconvenience as this is usually how long it takes me to get settled; seat belt on, phone connected, etc.

The touch screen is very responsive to the touch. I noticed that I need to be careful when selecting radio stations as keeping my finger on the station icon for a split second too long will cause it to unintentionally save said station as a 'favorite." I am not sure if this due to the programming delay or my carelessness. Otherwise, I have no problems with the display recognizing my finger tapping it.

There is an option for rear view camera and this can be disabled in the settings menu if you do not have a rearview camera. There is also options for connecting via bluetooth (which I have not tried) and regular USB (which I also have not tried). There is no CD slot, so this unit cannot play CDs. This doesn't bother me as all my music is on my phone. There are plenty of ports for subwoofers and additional components as well.

The only thing I don't like, and this is very minor dislike, is the "for your safety" message that appears each time the unit is started. It requires you to tap "ok" to clear. I haven't researched if this has been removed in a current firmware update or if there is a workaround.

BMW E46 Owners - Rejoice!

February 17, 2017

The XAV-AX100 fits an E46 without cutting into the HVAC. I installed in my '04 325xi with no issues. High quality OEM look and feel (better than Kenwood/Pioneer etc.). Works with factory amp and Axxess unit allows use of all steering wheel controls. Bluetooth, CarPlay, hands-free calling all 5 stars. Volume knob a +. The only - is no HD radio. Radio sound quality is average at best and well below the HD Pioneer units I own. But this Sony fits so I'll live with it. If you only stream music/podcasts/apps you won't care much about the radio. Good value. Overall very happy.

Simply Elegant Head Unit

February 7, 2017

In three words....it just works.
Simple, effective interface that doesn't "burp" on a large USB memory device. Android Auto works perfectly. Can't say about Apple since I don't have that.

My only nitpicks would be an option to remove the camera overlays altogether and the screen sensitivity to slide right to the settings is slow way too often. Perhaps a firmware update can fix these items.

This Sony receiver is a great unit. It is very easy to maneuver around in. With the newly released Android Auto version, you can simply talk to it without having to even touch the screen icon or push the voice button. Using only voice command (hands free) you can achieve whatever your phone is capable of. The display is high quality. The backup camera is very good. Sound is great. I would definitely recommend this unit for what I believe is a fair price point given it's abilities.
