Talk hands-free and stream music

You can't avoid it, sometimes an important call comes in while you're on the road. Clarion's CZ302 CD receiver puts Parrot's class-leading Bluetooth® in your dash, so you can field those calls and hear your caller over your speakers. Pairing your phone with this Clarion receiver's incredibly easy, and a driver's-side built-in microphone ensures the person on the other end will hear you loud and clear. And you can also stream music from your phone or another compatible device.

Pandora® Internet radio for iPhone® lovers

Take your Pandora stations along with the CZ302 — with your iPhone connected, you can run the free Pandora app on your phone and control it from the dash. You can skip tracks, change stations, and rate songs just like you do online.

Connect your iPod® or iPhone

Your music library's extensive, but you're in the mood for that one perfect song. Connect your iPod or iPhone to the convenient front-panel USB input, and you can dive into that massive collection. Clarion's ABC Search lets you quickly zero in on a tune, or you can search more generally by artist, playlist, genre, and more. You can also switch control from the receiver to the player itself, so you can put a passenger in charge of the music.

Built around great sound

Clarion's built-in amplifier gives you the clean power you need to overcome road noise, while the versatile Magna Bass EX bass boost will add depth to your sound without getting muddy. The 3-band parametric equalizer gives you pinpoint control over the highs, mids, and lows — that's a big jump over the simple bass and treble controls found on most factory radios. A built-in low-pass filter lets you control the character of your bass, while a high-pass filter trims the extreme low bass out of your front and rear speakers so they play more efficiently.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Clarion stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the CZ302, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

Note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls.

    The manual for the install was OK, Helped to have the Crutchfield cheat sheet. The main issues are, when installed in the sloping Honda Civic (2003) dash enclosure its glossy finish creates a bunch of glare that makes reading the display hard. Add to that the dimness of the display lighting and the way it gets dimmer still when you have on headlights (which I do during the day) it takes longer to read than it should. Offering a different, hooded bezel might help but deglossing the whole thing would be best IMHO. Still a good radio.

    Pros: Price

    Cons: Too glossy for the dash environment. Not enough control on the display. Would be good to have the clock just take over the display after a while.

    My first clarion, so far so good. Huge improvement over the stock unit. Bluetooth works well, but I still need to make some adjustments for call quality. Pleased so far!

    Sound quality is excellent with factory speakers. Bluetooth implementation could be better. Call quality is terrible with optional microphone in my 2004 Nissan Xterra turbo diesel. I expected decent noise reduction / DSP since the unit was labelled "parrot bluetooth". Do any aftermarket units compare with factory units for call quality? USB operation is temperamental, often gets read errors. Using galaxy S4 calls come in over USB mode but GPS notifications do not. Not sure if this is a configuration on the phone?

    Pros: great audio quality

    Cons: poor call quality with external mic, didn't notice any noise reduction or DSP circuitry to improve call quality terrible fit with mounting kit provided by Crutchfield - faceplate doesn't remove

    I like the stereo. It was easy to install. Crutchfield supplied me with everything I needed to do the install. The radio sounds great. There is a learning curve to it though. You need to read the instructions pretty thoroughly to get the hang of it. Some of the features can seem a little hidden. Other than that I am happy with the purchase and would definitely recommend this head unit.

    Pros: Great sound. Bluetooth. Remote Control.

    Cons: Learning Curve.

    Greetings, I used to own a Kenwood CD Receiver, but felt overwhelmed and frustrated because it had TOO many features. For example, on the remote control, I would be driving and wanted to switch stations it would THINK I wanted to store that artist when in fact, I didn't.. Long story short, it would BEEP whenever I had an artist stored accidently. Plus, the color choices schemes, and the central knob was more of a mouse or a joystick, and....well, I think you get the picture. It flat out sucked having too many options when all you really want is simplicity. Sort of like ordering a cheeseburger, you don't care how many kinds of cheeses in the world there are you only want a slice of cheese on your burger. The Clarion CZ-302 unit is superb. My wife got into my F150 with me after I hooked it up and her reaction was, Whoa! Clarion....really, I am impressed" I love the volume control knob. It his sturdy and even has a rubber ring around it for gripping. Which, is just a nice added touch of quality. Second, I like programming features on it as well as using the remote. Very simple, no nonsense, B.S. about it. It is as if Clarion constantly asked itself the question, "What is the quickest means to reach point B from point A" and Clarion took that path, unlike some of the other manufacturers such as Kenwood. On the other hand, this unit also packs a punch is sound quality. It has better bass than my former radio, and programming sound quality is a breeze.

    Pros: Efficiency in design and operation

    Cons: I wish I had become a Clarion fan years ago. No cons associate with this unit.

    This is a very good product. I just bought it for my fiance so she could have a blue tooth connection that would allow her to stop holding her phone or using the abysmal speaker phone. I bought this specific unit for the ipod connection, the clock, and the pre-outs for upgrades later if she wants. I couldn't be happier with this purchase.

    Pros: blue tooth works great! Ipod connector also charges! "It's so Pretty!"

    Cons: "screen saver" which is just retail mode, took me longer than I want to admit to figure out how to turn off. There are no other cons to this unit. If I wanted more features, I could have purchased the next up model.

    I bought this for my husband for his birthday. He installed it and really likes it. He still hasn't figured out all the new uses. We did get the wrong wiring adaptor, but that is probably my fault. He was able to install with the current radio adaptor, because he has installed other radios, and at one time was a mechanic.

    Pros: He can use all his other electronic gagets with it.

    Cons: ????

    Good set but usability not thought out

    I picked this set because I wanted the least plastic-looking stereo I could find at this price range. Other stereos also tend to have lots of strangely shaped buttons, so I appreciated the minimalist look of this one. And indeed it looks quite nice, and has a good feel. I especially like the rubber ring around the volume knob. In general, the technology in this stereo is quite good. Bluetooth works perfectly, sound quality is good, the microphone quality is just okay, but that's fairly standard in cars; I'm not aware of any sets that have solved this.

    There's one problem, however, that's a real nuisance and clearly indicates a poorly thought out user experience. What's the most commonly used button on a car stereo? Pause/Play. When you want to pause it's usually with some level of urgency. So it stands to reason that the button that would do this for you is the big round thing in the middle of the unit, no? In fact it isn't. The way to pause/play is via the microscopic button #4, somewhere at the bottom of the unit. I actually had to look this up in the user manual because I missed the tiny label. But even if you know this a priori, try pressing that tiny button while driving, even at low speed. I'll save you the suspense; it's incredibly difficult! It seems like a small thing, but again, given that pausing is usually done with some urgency, its really annoying every time!

    Pros: Looks quite nice, with a minimalist design Bluetooth works almost flawlessly Good sound quality Standard installation

    Cons: Frustrating usage with the pause/play button Microphone quality is just okay

    Great radio with all the modern features you need. Installation was a breeze and it looks great in my car. Happy little surprises were seeing how my iPhone automatically pairs when I start the car. Also its great to have Pandora, though the controls are a bit confusing.

    Pros: great affordable radio with all the features you need.

    Cons: not the most intuitive interface. some of the controls and menus are confusing at first (or second, or third...)

    I gave the radio 5 stars because of all the quality's that the radio come with. The sound is great and it looks great in my dash, but i did only have one problem with it. After about a week I developed a short and the radio fried. It might have been due to the way the radio was wired up, or it could have been a defect. At any rate i am trying another one. I think i will have better success with the second one. The sound is awesome, the price was great, it ease of use i gave 4 stars, it is cool, and i gave it 4 stars on build quality for the fact that it blew on me once. So far the new one works better than the first one did.

    This head unit seems to be a fairly good quality for the price. I bought it primarily to add hands free capability to my vehicle, and it connected to my iPhone 4 very easily. Installation was a breeze with the built in mic. Not as user friendly as it could be, as there is no dedicated phone button and the controls and setup are a little confusing

    Pros: Easy installation, good quality

    Cons: Confusing phone controls

    Love the design of this unit, looks great, sounds good, general functions are a breeze, and bluetooth is nice and clear. Had a couple of issues upon first install, not sure if it was operator error, miss-labled wires on unit, or bad instructions on the adapter harness where the remote and power antenna wires had to be switched, and then customized to keep the aftermarket amp and stock amp on at the same time. reception was crystal clear on the toner and there is some great functions to fine tune this unit to your liking.

    Pros: 1. Basic functions are easy and well placed on the radio. 2. sound quality is great and multi-adjustible to your liking. 3. Has a nice look to it.

    Cons: 1. Setup functions are a little hard to get through 2. Dimmer leaves accent light still pretty bright for night driving 3. Doesn't allow for separate sound setting for each function (Radio, CD, AUX, Bluetooth, ect.) 4. preset EQ sound profiles are a waste.

    Had some initial installation issues because the instructions didn't mention removing the 'DIN sleeve.' Upon calling Crutchfield service and talking with 'Lefty' he told me to remove the sleeve and then the unit went in just fine.

    Between this better quality stereo and the 7 speakers in my car, I am hearing my music like I never have.

    One thing I found out was that a flash drive used in the USB port is best set up without subfolders in it. Although the music in them will play, once the randomization algorithm gets into a subfolder, it will rarely come out. I just restructured the drive and now it randomizes as it should.

    Pros: Sounds great. Easy to install, once the DIN sleeve was removed. Easy to operate; I like having a pause for the USB and CD. The volume knob is easy to find and manipulate.

    Cons: The display is a little dim during the daytime. See comment about randomization of flash drive.

    I really like this stereo. I bought it to replace a stereo that didn't have Pandora or hands-free calling. I had purchased a Sony stereo from Crutchfield and installed it in my truck that has integrated Pandora for iPhone as well as hands-free calling. That stereo (the Sony) came with a microphone that I could mount on my dash. This one has the hands-free feature BUT DOES NOT COME WITH A MICROPHONE FOR HANDS-FREE CALLING. Sorry to shout, there, but I hope anyone reading this realizes it and buys the microphone at the same time as the stereo. I wish I hand known. I ended up installing it, ordering the mic, opening the dash back up and installing the mic. That was a bit of a pain in the butt. That's the only reason it gets 4 instead of 5 stars. The remote works well. I especially like the feature that lets you give thumbs up or down in Pandora using the remote (the Sony stereo I have doesn't do that). It also has sufficient RCA outputs to go with a decent pre-amp/crossover and amp. That's the next step with this. It's a good enough head unit that I will amplify it and add more speakers. For the price, you can't go wrong with this unit.

    Pros: integrated Pandora and hands-free calling, thumbs up or down in Pandora with remote control, cool blue lighting, easy install, good sound, 4 pre-amp outputs (one pair can be switched to subwoofer with internal crossover)

    Cons: hands-free mic is NOT INCLUDED and it doesn't really state this clearly and prominently

    First of all, Kudo's to Crutchfield for being around all these years. Amazing, I was buying radio's from them in the 80's and now buying them for my kids' cars today. Very easy to use website. Upon entering the vehicle type('98 Honda civic), a perfect list of options were offered. Great pricing and exact installation kits made my install a great success. Amazingly, in the Crutchfield install notes, it stated, "in order for the dome light to work a green wire in the factory harness needs to be spliced together after removing the factory radio". There is very good chance I would not have known to do this if I had purchased a radio somewhere else!

    Pros: Easy to use for a 16yr girl using her iphone5(plugs right in). Amazed with the options available at this price level(Bluetooth, iphone controls, etc.)

    Cons: Stumbled trying to turn off the "screensaver" or demo mode.

    Nice Radio however....A Word of caution. There is are lot of cables hanging out the back of radio. 4channel pre amp outputs (4 cables) and Serius Satellite (one good size connector and cable.) If you don't need these features, possibly look at another radio. I installed this in a 2000 VW Beetle and the room for a radio is very limited. It was like trying to fit a size 16 woman into a size 10 dress. Not an easy venture. (Sorry ladies for the analogy.) So after multiple scratches on my hands and arms and a few muttered not -so- nice words, the radio was installed. Do check out how much extra room you have behind the radio. Another thing ....The buttons are somewhat small. A pencil sharpener applied to your fingers may help if you have chubby fingers. Otherwise you may be hitting two buttons at once.

    Great addition

    I have added this to a 2005 grand cherokee in place of a broken 6 disk changer. First off this is a great head deck. Sound is great and everything works as expected. Thanks to Crutchfield pre sales advisers this was a quick and easy install and all functionality including steering wheels controls and Bluetooth were retained.

    I love this unit especially after having to return a Boss unit that sounded like crap. This Clarion us built nicely, sounds very good, and looks pretty cool. The Bluetooth connection links super quickly. The only thing I found that could use some improvement is the speed that it recognizes and starts playing a CD track. Overall a great buy.

    Pros: Good sound quality, doesn't have a "cheap feel" (bitin clicks, etc), remote

    Cons: Slow to play CD tracks when first going to that function or after inserting a CD

    Couldn't be happier!

    Chose the unit 80% on price and 20% on name, been a Kenwood guy forever. With that being said I'm not dissapointed in my decision in the least! Fit and finish on the Clarion seems to be spot on, buttons and volume knob have a solid feel, not what I was expecting in this price range. As far as features it has everything I want and more, almost too many for an old guy like me lol, but the more I use it ( have only had it about a week) the more I appreciate every one of them, sync with my iphone was a snap. I paired the unit with some 6.5 Rockford Fosgate 165x3 speakers for the front doors of a 98 silverado ext cab and they work great with this radio, have a pair of 6x9 RF punches on the way along with the Clarion xc 1410 amp as we speak and can't wait to get rid of the stock 4x6's in the back, should really wake the ol' chevy up and let this head unit scream.(will take some doing to fit the 6x9's but hey, its an old truck and it'll be worth it!) Long story short its a great radio and packed with a lot more features than I expected for this price, not to mention the good folks at Crutchfield threw in everything needed for a super easy install, you guys are awesome!!! Would recomend this unit and Crutchfield to anyone looking for a good product and a top notch company to deal with.

    Pros: Looks great Ton of features for not a ton of money Lots of options for really fine tuning the bass,mids and highs Easy set up and straight forward to operate once there

    Cons: None to speak of yet

    Great Product!

    First purchase from Crutchfield, and I doubt I will ever purchase from anywhere else. Very pleased with the clarion CD player. Easy to install in my 06 F-150. Great upgrade from stock.

    Pros: Crutchfield customer service and just about Everything about the CD player

    Cons: I would hardly call it a con but has a few more features than I need

    Great Receiver

    Awesome stereo, I have really enjoyed this great upgrade to my stock system. The advanced functions with a small price tag was very nice

    Pros: Great bluetooth connectivity with my windows phone. Sound quality with my stock speakers was great and the ipod controls are easy to use

    Cons: Only reason I did not rate 5 stars was my am and fm range seemed to go down. I love listening to my sports talk in the am and the stations I listen to are not nearly as clear as they were with my stock stereo

    I reviewed a number of different radios before making my final decision. I am familiar with the Clarion name, and this did have a factor in my choice. I bought this primarily for the Bluetooth function. Just love the "hands free" speaker phone, with auto answer, and voice dial features. Very few radios I looked at had the "built in" microphone. I had no desire to have to run wiring and mount an external mic somewhere on my dash. Doubt I will ever use the Pandora or XM features, but is nice to know I do have those options. Sound quality is great, with more than enough power to drive my speakers. Can't turn up the volume much past half way without rattling my windows. The included dash adapter and wiring harness fit like a glove, and made installation a snap. NO cutting and/or splicing wires needed. IF I ever want to reinstall my stock radio, everything is still OEM intact.

    Pros: Great radio for the price. Way more functions and options that I'll ever use.

    Cons: Too many options. Will take a dummy like me to learn all the functions available some time.

    Great receiver

    I researched quite a bit before buying the Clarion CZ302 for my 2007 Honda Accord LX.

    These were my requirements: CD(MP3), USB, Bluetooth

    All requirements were met, and the sound from the stock car speakers is SO much better, using this receiver. Crutchfield also supplied (free of charge) the "HOND ACCORD 03- MS", the mounting kit for the vehicle. I took the receiver and the mounting kit to a professional installer and got it installed. (I know, I'm not a DIY-er!)

    For a receiver this size, all buttons are small, as expected, but they are fairly intuitive. I haven't yet opened up the user manual but I configured the FM favourites, used the CD, played songs from the USB stick with folders and files system, configured and used the Bluetooth to play songs and make calls.

    I am absolutely delighted with the product and the service from Crutchfield!

    Pros: - Small - USB - Bluetooth - Awesome sound from the stock speakers

    Cons: - Small - The ambient blue light cannot be dimmed (I think, not yet looked at the manual) - Non of the cons should be any where close to a deal-breaker!

    Very cool Receiver!!!
