Does it fit my car?

Loading...

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'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.

    Nice Sounding

    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.

    The sound is good, not excellent but what would you expect in a $70 deck. I like it in my commuter Honda Civic. The fit was great and the install went easy. My only knock is on the ease of use. You HAVE to read the instruction manual to figure out the settings. On any other deck in any other vehicle I've owned I could figure out the settings and functions on my own. Not so much with this deck. Getting to the audio controls was a slight chore.

    Pros: Very good sound, great look.

    Cons: Control functions hard to access. Takes some getting used to.

    Perfect for the price.

    Perfect for the price. I bought this as a replacement for a 10 year old car. Worth every penny as Crutchfield offered service beyond what you would get at a brick and mortar store. Easy to install and easy to use. Simple buttons make for easy use while driving. Would buy another one if I were to replace an older stereo in a car.

    Pros: Easy installation. Buttons are easy to use (once you figure them out). Sound quality is clear.

    Cons: Not very visible in sunlight (even at its brightest).

    This is a great head unit if you're looking to upgrade your factory stereo. I wish that the display was a bit bigger/brighter, but for what I paid I am really happy with this. I especially like being able to easily toggle between the EQ settings when I am listening to vocal podcasts instead of music.

    Pros: price, quality, decent power

    Cons: display is sometimes hard to read

    Written By Mad Hatter, Iowa City, IA on Saturday, August 23, 2014

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Spent half a day (not to mention time buying additional tools) trying to install. I'm comfortable with electrical wiring but the interface & harness that were required are like trying to get an octopus and a squid together. Once that was done, the unit just kept turning itself on & off with display occasionally blinking. Tried to reset it multiple times with no rated with this mess.changes. Never heard anything from the speakers. Better to have my old system that works than to get frustrated with this mess.

    Pros: None

    Cons: Poor installation instructions for all equipment involved! Tripled the wiring already in the receiver area of the dashboard If you have a Toyota, don't buy this unit & additional materials

    Crutchfield response on Wednesday, August 27, 2014 Installing a stereo usually isn't that hard, but it sure can be confusing sometimes, especially in today's cars. Don't forget that one of the best reasons to buy from Crutchfield is our free, lifetime tech support. We can help you figure out all the wires and have those wrestling cephalopods shaking hands in no time.

    Got this for my sister for a gift and she was thrilled. Her stereo had died over a year ago and she just didn't have time to get another she said. Well I did it all for her. She cried when I gave this stereo to her. I had iy installed, she turned it on and hugged me so tight I thought she'd broken my back, lol. Honestly the sound quality of this stereo is amazing! It looks good and really is an excellent buy for the money. It sounds like a much more expensive unit. It arrived at my door step so quickly I was shocked. It was so easy to order also. I would give this stereo a 10 if I could!

    Pros: All good!

    Cons: Absolutely nothing!

    Bought this a replacement for Toyota Tundra. This was my second JVC swap as my Avalanche has an older version of basically the same unit. My Tundra had a factory outboard amp with the 6 speaker system and I was was sceptical to bypass it and just use the built in amp on the JVC. Seems to handle it well. Controls are well thought out and and screen is easy to read. The wiring harness adaptor was easy to solder and was a breeze due to the color coded wires. Always use the heat shrink tubing for a clean and trouble free install. For the price this unit is hard to beat.

    Pros: Lots of bang for the buck.

    Cons: At this price, none really.

    The sound of this is terrific! I was really pleased with that. I had read some reviews commenting on the red lighting being annoying...and it most certainly is! I also read in some place that it could be changed to blue, and in other places that it could not. I found that you could not change the coloring of it. Other than the color, I am pretty pleased with the purchase of this.
