Marine Certified: The Dual MXD105 marine receiver is specifically designed
and built to last in harsh marine environments.
- Conformal Coating: A transparent protective film is applied to
surfaces of all interior printed circuit boards. This additional layer of
defense guards against dust, condensation, and corrosion; ensuring maximum
longevity in demanding marine installations.
- UV Resistant Construction: The faceplate and other exposed
elements of the receiver are carefully injection-molded using
high-temperature ultra-violet resistant resins, preventing them from
breaking down in the sun and give you peace of mind to enjoy your music on
- EDP Chassis: Applied using an electrical charge, EDP (Electrophoretically
Deposited Paint) offers unparalleled protections against corrosion and rust
resistance. All exterior metal surface including cassis, heatsink, and
mounting sleeve undergo this process to ensure a long life in the marine
- PET Wrapped Chassis: This tough, dirt and moisture-resistant
layer of PET (polyethylene) wraps the top and the sides of the entire
chassis; providing additional measure of protection from the harsh marine
- Silicone Cover: Injected from high-grade silicone, this removable
cover guards the receiver's front-panel USB/3.5mm input, protecting if from
water splashes and debris. A convenient tether provide and attachment to the
receiver, ensuring the cover is removable but won't get lost.
Note: Even though the conformal coating and other marine
features makes the receiver
water-resistant, it can be further protected by an optional universal marine
cover; such as the Metra (120999005B,
sold separately) or Scosche (142ACM1,
Marine Speakers: Included in this marine package are two pairs of
marine-rated speakers. The speakers feature a two-way design with a 6.5"
cone woofer and 1" cone tweeter. The speakers offer a frequency response of
45-15kHz and can handle up to 20 watts (RMS) or 100 watts (peak). The speakers
are rated at 4-ohm with a sensitivity rating of 88dB (1W/1M). The marine
speakers feature a white plastic frame and include white plastic grilles that
are detachable. Dimensions are as follows:
- Mounting Height: 0.875"
- Mounting Depth: 2.125"
- Frame Diameter: 7.125"
- Cut Out Diameter: 5.125"
- Bolt Pattern: 4 screw holes that are 4.5" apart
(stainless steel hardware is provided)
Note: Four 12' lengths of speaker wire is included.
Waterproof Remote: The included remote has been designed to
float and to be waterproof (XPX7) during a short water immersion (up to 3' deep,
for less than 30 minutes).
SD Card Slot: The Dual MXD105 digital media receiver is fitted with
a front-panel SD-card slot that is hidden behind the head unit's detachable
face-plate. The SD card slot supports playback of MP3/WMA files stored on SD and
SDHC memory cards (up to 32GB).
USB Input: The MXD105 is equipped with a
front-panel USB (type-A) which enables connection of a portable USB mass-storage
class (MSC) device; such as select Android smartphones (Froyo/Gingerbread OS
only), portable digital audio players, or USB thumbdrives. The head unit
supports playback of MP3/WMA music files stored on a compatible USB mass
storage device. The unit's USB port will also charge (max. 0.5A) your USB
devices during connection.
Note: This unit's USB port does not support Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
Supported Media Files: The MP3/WMA music files stored on
your USB mass storage device or SD/SDHC memory card must meet the following

Audio & Tuner Section
MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual MXD105 marine receiver is equipped with
a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET
amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased
power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More
power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not
pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the
head unit are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts
Note: The power specifications for this head unit are
compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement
standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards
were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model
and between manufacturers.
2V/2Ch Preamp Outputs: The MXD105 features a pair
of 2-volt preamp outputs to connect an external amplifier. The preamp outputs
are fading and cannot be set to non-fading.
Equalizer: The receiver features the
following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Rock, & Off/User) to
customize your music listening. The User mode lets you manually adjust Bass &
Treble to your preference.
Loudness: The Loudness function enhances the bass & treble
frequencies at low volumes.
Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every button press
will output a beep tone.
AM/FM Tuner: The Dual marine head unit features a built-in
AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store up to 18 FM
station presets and 12 AM station presets (manually or automatically). The Local
function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations
with weaker signals. You can even switch the tuner between USA or European
tuning. A 40" wired AM/FM antenna is included.
Detachable Face: The MXD105's face-plate is detachable to
deter theft (no face case provided). An optional soft face case (142DFC1X,
sold separately) can also be purchased for this unit.
Single Line Display: The vibrant positive-type, single-line LCD
provides enhanced visibility under the toughest boating environments.
High-contrast black characters on a white background ensure readability in any
situation; from total darkness to direct sunlight. The display brightness can be
set to High, Medium, or Low.
Clock Display: The unit's built-in clock will display
12-hour AM/PM time in USA frequency spacing mode. In European frequency spacing
mode, the clock will display 24-hour time.
