Magna Bass EX (Extend):
The Magna Bass EX feature provides an
extra boost of bass when activated. Unlike conventional loudness features that

frequencies, the added bass impact won't distort or muffle the high frequencies.
The bass control range is +/-14dB at
100Hz. The treble control range is +/-14dB at 10kHz.

recalled, you cannot tune to another station without first disengaging the ISR
function. You can, however, switch to another source.
Illumination Dimmer: The
receiver's display automatically dims to a preset brightness when the vehicle's
headlights are turned on. The wiring harness includes an orange/white lead that
should be connected to the vehicle's parking light circuit in order for the
dimmer feature to operate.
