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 with Flip-Out Screen
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
4 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.
6-band equalizer with 7 selectable tone 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.

Playback Features

AM/FM Tuner
Most in-dash CD players have AM/FM playback allowing you listen to your favorite local radio stations.
FM Presets
The number of FM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
AM Presets
The number of AM radio stations that can be stored as presets.
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.
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.
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.
DVD / Video Playback
This feature refers to whether or not the receiver will play DVD (or other listed) video disc formats. Unless otherwise noted, the unit is not guaranteed to play recorded DVDs.
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.
Front and Rear
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.

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
Front 3.5mm Audio Input

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.
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.

Receivers which are HD Radio Ready generally require an additional purchase of a separate tuner.
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.

Great stereo, poor support!

July 20, 2015

I bought this stereo after going over countless reviews for other stereos and I have to say I'm really impressed by it. It was the only stereo that offered everything that I wanted at a GREAT price:
* Front USB, AUX, and memory card inputs
* Rear HDMI and USB power inputs, multiple AV inputs including backup camera support and passenger DVD output
* DVD & CD support
* Bluetooth support with microphone for phone calls
* Dual Mirror Support
* Removable faceplate
* Slide out 7" display
* Analog steering wheel control interface built in
* Remote control

It also has multicolor support so it's a very colorful unit! I didn't really need that, but it's nice to have and very pleasing and catching to the eye.

Anyhow, it's a lovely device and I would highly recommend it. The only negative things about it are the display on the faceplate is hard to see during the day and their customer support is awful (the same guy answers the phone every time, plus he sounds about as thrilled as Ferris Bueller's teacher to help you). He's also quick to say there's no help for the issue you're having. Funny thing about it is that when I had an Axxera stereo, it was the SAME guy who answered their customer support line too! =) Anyhow other than those two things, there's no other negatives about it!

Great stereo, great price!

A Waste of Money

January 24, 2016

A Big waste of Money. Had to buy extra, Antenna Adapter, Dongle Extension Cords, Radio Dash Adapter twice, and Radio Wiring Harness Adapter.

PROS: Touch Screen, Large Icons, Removable Face, Color Selection, Bluetooth Phone.

CONS: First, You have to buy the Radio to get the Website to download the instruction book.
CONS: Very Specific on Flash Drive, SD Card, won't read any of Mine and they are basic MP3 and Very Specific on Phones for Dual Screen, and all this info is only in the downloadable instruction manual. Dongle won't work behind Radio, so I had to buy extensions for it to go down under dash and attach to bottom of dash for access to reset button. The dongle is needed for the Bluetooth to work, Bluetooth won't work without it. There is no Clock, if the Radio is turned off, there is no Clock, You have to have the radio on with the screen out to have the time. There is no Memory for Phone Numbers, once You turn of the ignition, You lose everything. I had to buy an Adapter twice to get it to fit properly first time the screen would hit the dash, second was out so far it would hit the shifter, I modified the second adapter so it fit just right. The Dual Screen won't work with My Phone, and I even bought the Hard Wire Cable (Per Sonic) to see if that would work and it doesn't either, and besides, You need the Dongle for the Bluetooth to work. The Radio is a PIA, trying to save stations is a nightmare in it's own right.
I bought this Radio so I could use My GPS off the Phone on the main screen, that doesn't work. I was better off just buying a GPS separate. The only advantage I have over My old Radio is the Hands Free Phone, But then it doesn't save My frequent numbers,. And I still haven't gotten to the Back Up Camera, I don't even know if that works. By the time I got all the proper cables and adapters, is was past Sonics 60 day return policy. I would have returned it otherwise. Save Your Money look for something different.

Looks great - for the short time it worked...

April 12, 2016

This seems like a great head unit from the looks of it. Bunch of fancy features. Decent power. Pretty visible screen. Fairly straight forward OS.
Only problem is - the flip out screen is terrible. At the least - the screen will come out slowly, with some issues, like the motors constantly spinning even when its fully extended. At it's worst it won't open at all under cold conditions. I was making a road trip too during said cold conditions. Having no tunes for a 12 hr drive pretty much sucks.
I would NOT recommend this unit to anyone. If you want a screen, play it safe and just get a double-din unit. None of this flip-out crap.
