Does it fit my car?

Select your car

Find what fits your car

If you're looking to upgrade the sound in your car without shelling out serious cash, take a good look at this striking JVC. The KD-R330 CD receiver is perfect for a teenager's first car, for a family's second car, or any car with a factory radio that's on its last legs. And you just might have enough left over for a pair of speakers, too.

A serious improvement in sound
First of all, you'll get a lot more power — 20 blazing watts of continuous juice. By comparison, your factory stereo probably struggles to crank out 5-10 watts. More power doesn't just mean you can play louder, though, it elevates definition and accuracy at all frequencies, giving you greater realism in your music.

JVC also packs the KD-R330 with a superior CD deck that'll make your discs sound their best, a sophisticated equalizer for dialing in the perfect sound in your car, and two auxiliary inputs for plugging in your gear. Built-in frequency filters let you tailor the JVC's output so your speakers (and subs, if you got 'em) only play what they were designed to handle.

Expansion possibilities
You'll find two auxiliary inputs for adding sound sources — use the rear input for a permanent source like a satellite radio, and the front source for plugging your iPod® or other portable. Add JVC's Bluetooth® adapter (not included), and you'll be able to take hands-free while your cell phone stays in your pocket or purse. If you're planning to add an amp or a powered sub, you'll find a set of preamp outputs, switchable to subwoofer mode so you can adjust the bass independent of your faders.

Product Highlights:

    General features:
    • CD receiver with AM/FM tuner
    • built-in MOSFET amplifier (20 watts RMS CEA-2006/50 peak x 4 channels)
    • remote control
    Audio features:
    • 24-bit digital-to-analog converter
    • high- and low-pass filters
    • 3-band parametric equalizer
    Expandability:
    • compatible with JVC's Bluetooth adapter
    • inputs: front and rear auxiliary inputs
    • outputs: 2-channel preamp outputs (2.5-volt rear/subwoofer)
    Other features and specs:

    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.

    I recently decided to replace my car's factory stereo with an updated model that would allow me to play CDs. The customer service representatives were very knowledgeable and helpful, and the product arrived on time and in good condition. I have used the CD player and radio many times since it has been installed, and I am very pleased with the product. I would definitely recommend this item.

    I ordered this head unit on a Friday and it arrived at my house the following Wednesday. I did all of the installation myself, it took me about 3 and a half hours. All of the difficulty I faced was because I had never installed a head unit before. I know that it is not the highest quality out there but it has already made a world of difference from my stock head unit. I would recommend it to anybody looking for a good head unit to improve the sound system in their vehicle.

    Pros: Easy install, easy to use, good quality, great value.

    Cons: It may have made me want to spend more money on new speakers and possibly a sub

    This is a great stereo for the price. Contols are easy to use. Lots of presets, and a clock on your dash for those who don't have a stand alone chronometer from the factory. Sound is strong and you can up the decibles if needed. Also bluetooth can be added later if you change your mind.

    Pros: Price, clock, sound.

    Cons: No USB port.

    A really good value for the price. Positives: great sound, pretty simple controls, 18 FM presets. Negatives: Even at it's brightest, the display is very hard to read in even moderate sunlight.

    Pros: Great sound, pretty simple controls, 18 FM presets

    Cons: Even at it's brightest, the display is very hard to read in even moderate sunlight.

    Got this for my 2007 Subaru Forester, it had the factory base stereo which was adequate but I wanted more. I'm a bit pressed for money so I ordered this only expecting the advantage of having an AUX cord (because I had been listening to CDs) but I was frankly blown away when I heard the improvement. Even with the factory speakers it simply sounds better. The equalizers are all great and if you buy the attachment it can be Bluetooth compatible. Great product, great price, would very highly recommend

    Pros: Great sound, very inexpensive, easy to install, looks great, easy to use

    Cons: No USB port

    Bought this unit after my factory radio gave out. Easy to install in my Dodge Ram 1500 with the wiring harness and adapter faceplate that I purchased. Great sound and much better audio than the factory unit. Just attached the faceplate to the unit and then wired up the units wiring harness to the factory adapter following the wiring colors. Unit fit perfect just like the factory unit.

    Pros: Great sound and easy to install. Great price.

    Cons: Most of the functions are accessed from a single knob by running through a menu. I realize most things these days work this way but I am use to a knob for every function ( I'm from the dinosaur era).

    I was looking for a radio for my daughters 97 Toyota Corolla and this worked out perfectly. Fits in cavity, wiring was easy. I hate reviewing anything within the first month as you don't know what lies ahead but so far this is working out great and my daughter loves it.

    Pros: meets our needs

    Product was fairly easy to install with the Crutchfield information and kits. Product itself works well, is easy to operate, looks sleek, and has good sound quality for the price. The only drawback is that the CD player requires the discs to be in pristine condition or else it skips.

    Pros: Good sound quality, user-friendly, great value.

    Cons: CD player only plays discs in very good condition

    This is by far one of the best head units for the price I have seen. After a few "off brand" deals, I went with a name brand budget radio. This will impress you. Very solid unit, it does not feel cheap. This is right on par with any JVC unit. Good sound, good display and good power for factory replacement speakers. It is hooked straight into 4 six and a halfs, no issues with sound quality. I am more than happy with every feature.

    Pros: Looks great, awesome value, ample power

    For a Lincoln that I keep parked at the airport at the beach. The original stopped working and I replaced it with a guaranteed used one from a local recycle yard. After replacing it another time, I was told to replace the amplifier in the trunk, more money. Still no sound. This radio, along with its installation kit, cost much less than the used ones from the junk yard. It sounds much better than the original, and that was Lincoln's Premium Sound system. The best part of the whole project was how easy an unqualified person can install a first class sound system.

    Pros: It came in 2 days. First class sound from a relatively inexpensive radio. Clear, precise instructions for installation and removal tools for the old radio as well. All I needed was my soldering iron.

    Cons: Learning to set it up and use it. After getting used to it, it is quite easy, just different from stock systems.

    Very Good

    I've always turned to my audio/mechanic buddies in the past when it came to installing any kind of car-audio equipment. But after seeing pictures of the wiring harnesses and in-dash adapters you could get, I gave it a shot. I picked up this radio and the accessories to put in my 2005 Ford Focus station wagon to replace the stock 6-disc cd changer/radio. I have an iPod and wanted something with an audio jack. It took me about 90 minutes to splice the harnesses together and attach it to the harness under the dashboard. The colored wiring diagrams Crutchfield emailed me were easy-peasy and perfect. Fired it up and it works like magic! Quality sounds much better than the old stock radio. I love that it has two aux ins. Love that the faceplate is removable. It went so easily, three days later I ordered another of the same kit to put in our other car, a 2005 Ford Focus hatchback. Even faster installation since I knew exactly how to do it this time. Fantastic fast, free shipping, easy installation, and now I've got a sweet new deck in my car. Awesome. Thanks, Crutchfield

    Pros: Fast installation. Pretty darn easy to do, even for someone who was never car-audio savvy. Gorgeous deck. Love the color of the lights. Beautiful sound. I've never heard my stock speakers sound as nice. 2 AUX inputs; one in front and one in back. I can hook my iPod cable in the back and just leave it there like it was stock.

    Cons: Interface to set up presets can be a little clunky and take a little while to get the feel of it. Wish the clock was a default setting, or was always displaying somewhere. Not that big of a deal.

    THis replaces my F250 stock radio. The clarity of the sound is so very much better than the OEM radio that came from Ford. Love the remote for easy "no taking my eyes off the road" adjustments.

    Pros: Sound clarity, easy to install.

    Cons: Display moves constantly, though I expect this is a setting I just have not found.
