Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
Smart Jog Knob: This unit is
equipped with a large rotary knob that provides a convenient way to make
adjustments. Volume, bass, treble, balance, fader, H-Bass, DSSA, BBE and clock
adjustments are made using the Smart Jog knob.
Source Level Adjuster: The
relative level of each source (FM/AM/CD/AUX) may be adjusted, from -4 to +4, and
the setting will be retained in memory. The level of each source can be set so
there won't be drastic leaps in volume when changing from one source to another.
H-Bass: Instead of a loudness
control, this unit is equipped with an H-Bass function. Conventional bass boost
circuits also affect the mid-bass and midrange, resulting in a muddy,
"boomy" sound. H-Bass provides true deep bass enhancement for a
dynamic bottom end that does not destroy the clarity of vocals and other
mid-frequency content. You can choose from 3 H-Bass settings.
DSSA (Drivers Sound Stage
Adjustment): This feature adjusts the sound stage and tone balance to sound
best from one of the front seat positions. You may set the DSSA feature for the
front left seat or the front right seat, or the DSSA feature may be turned off.
When the DSSA feature is on, the balance and fader settings cannot be adjusted.
BBE Processing: The
BBE processing restores the brilliance and clarity of broadcasts and recordings
by adjusting the phase relationship between the low, mid and high frequencies by
adding a progressively longer delay time to the low and mid frequencies. The BBE
processing has 2 adjustable levels and an off position.
MP3 Playback: This unit will
play MP3 files recorded onto CD-ROM, CD-R and CD-RW discs using the ISO 9660
level 1/level2 format. MP3 files with a compression rate from 8-320 kbps are
supported. Multi-session discs are supported, but the unit can only play the
first 5 sessions. Each disc can have a maximum of 512 tracks and 8 nested
Note: If a disc contains
both audio tracks and MP3 files, the unit will only play the audio tracks.
In addition, the unit may not play files recorded with a packet-writing
Front Panel Auxiliary Input: A
front panel stereo mini-jack is provided to allow the connection of a portable
audio source. 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.
Active Tuning Reception Control: This
unit automatically suppresses FM noise caused by vehicle movement, and maintains
