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. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.
Clarion ProAudio DXZ535 Reviews
Average Customer Review:
This is great--I installed it into my Ford Aerostar. I don't need all the bells and whistles--just AM & FM radio and CD. Plenty of power and clarity and easy to set the stations. The Aerostar originally came without a CD player.

In subwoofer output mode, the preamp outputs have a selectable low-pass crossover that can be set to 50Hz, 80Hz, or 120Hz.

Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system. The Aux input sensitivity is adjustable and can be set to High, Mid, or Low.
Dimmer Feature: This unit is equipped with a wire that Clarion calls an illumination lead, however, it acts as a dimmer lead. When the illumination wire of this unit receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on, the display will dim to a preset level.
Note: When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off completely.
CeNET Control: This unit is equipped with a CeNET control connector and can control up to a total of two CeNET changers (CD and/or MD). Two changer control requires a Y-adapter (sold separately).

CD Title Memory: When used with a compatible CD changer, this feature allows you to assign names to discs in the changer. Each name can be up to 8 characters in length. The number of names you can store depends on the CD changer that is connected to the head unit.
Display Illumination/Clock Display: When the clock display has been given priority, pressing and holding the power button turns off audio output, but the clock display and face illumination remain on. When the clock display has not been given priority, pressing and holding the power button turns the unit off completely. This unit's face illumination and clock are "keyed" only when the clock display has been given priority.
Warranty Note: For 2003 ProAudio models, Clarion has extended the 2-year warranty to all Crutchfield customers, even if the unit is not installed by an authorized Clarion dealer.
