Speaker Specifications

Speaker Size
Refers to the size of the speaker measured in inches. Every vehicle has standard application sizes. Please use our vehicle fitment guide for your vehicle's specific speaker sizes if you do not know them.
Peak Power Handling
Peak power handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle during a brief musical burst. The RMS power range figure is a much more reliable rating for determining the speaker's power requirements. The Peak power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
500 watts
RMS Power Handling
The RMS power is the amount of power the speaker requires to operate safely and properly. RMS Power Handling refers to the amount of power a speaker can handle on a continuous basis. We recommend powering your speakers or subwoofer with 80%-120% of its recommended RMS rating. The RMS power handling specification is typically rated per speaker unless otherwise noted.
210 watts

CD Specifications

Number of Discs
The number of discs that the unit can store internally. The discs can be accessed quickly and sometimes from a remote source.
Tray Type

The unit will play CD-RW discs. CD-RW are also know as CD-ReWriteable and they can be used more than once.

MP3 should not be confused with MPEG-3. MP3 files are the third audio layer of a MPEG-1 file. The compression algorithm of a MP3 file reduces the file size while keeping the audio quality.

The unit offers the playback of WMA files.

WMA stands for Windows Media Audio and was developed by Microsoft. It is a file used specifically for audio.

iPod Compatibility

This list does not apply if the iPod is being connected through the 3.5mm mini-jack plug. Newer iPods are usually compatible if the appropriate adapters are purchased and used.

Any iPods/iPhones released after the release date of this product have not been checked by the manufacturer and/or Sonic Electronix for compatibility. We therefore cannot guarantee their compatibilities or incompatibilities, including, but not limited to: playback, video, charging, and response time.

iPod Classic (120GB)
iPod Classic (80 &160GB)
iPod Mini (4 & 6GB)
iPod Nano 1st Generation (1, 2, & 4GB)

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.

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.

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
Headphone Output
If the unit is capable of outputting audio to a pair of headphones, this is the type of jack that makes the connection.
3.5mm (1/8") Stereo Jack
Wi-Fi Antenna
This will allow you to connect to your home network or the internet without having to plug-in an Ethernet cable. The built-in Wi-Fi antenna will connect to the internet without having the computer on.

Cool overall, but not a real Karaoke machine...

January 20, 2014

This boombox sounds great and has lots of features for the money however I bought it primarily for the Karaoke feature and found out it doesn't decode CD+G or most any of the other karaoke formats. So you don't see the lyrics on the little screen which was very disappointing. Not even sure how they get away calling it a karaoke machine under these circumstances...

Also be advised it doesn't come with a microphone so you'll have to spring for that separately.

This is by far the best stereo system available. I was originally going to put this in my room, but it was instantly upgraded to the living room upon arrival. The sound is second to none. Impeccable. Incredible, Stunning, Powerful, Mind Blowing AWESOME! The LCD screen is icing on the cake, by far hands down without a doubt best performing, best sounding, best quality, best features on any home theater, stereo, or boombox ever!!!!!
