CEA-2006 Compliant: The specifications given by JVC for the
built-in amplifier comply with the CEA-2006 mobile amplifier power testing and
measurement standards from the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association). All
manufacturers who comply with the standard can display the CEA-2006 logo on
Bongiovi Acoustics: The included Bongiovi Acoustics DPS
(Digital Power Station) disc optimizes the KD-S100's output for playback in
an automotive environment. DPS is a patented digital processing method that
extends the frequency response of the speakers and maximizes the frequency-specific
power distribution of the head-unit's amplifier. While it's typically beneficial
to replace the speakers and add amplifiers, DPS offers the greatest improvement
in sound quality when used with the factory speakers (partly because they have
the most room for improvement). The powerful processor also scans, recognizes,
and reproduces multiple types of music sources (CD's, MP3 files, vinyl transfers,
AM radio, FM radio, satellite radio, WMA files) with full studio quality sound and
without volume changes between signal sources. The bass response is noticeably
improved by Virtual Subwoofer technology; DPS digitally creates an array of sound
that produces a result as if a subwoofer were installed in the vehicle.
MP3/WMA Playback: The KD-S100 can play MP3 and WMA files
from CD-R and CD-RW discs, SD memory cards, and USB flash drives.
SD Card: Behind the motorized fold down face is an SD card
slot. MP3 and WMA files can be played from an SD card with these requirements:
- Format: Fat 12 or FAT 16
- Card Size: 8 MB to 512 MB
- Bit Rates:
- MP3: 8-320 kbps
- WMA: 8-192 kbps
- Sampling Frequencies:
- MP3: 16 kHz, 22.05 kHz,
24 kHz, 33 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz
- WMA: 32 kHz, 44.1 kHz,
USB: The KD-S100 has a front panel USB (type A) port. MP3
and WMA files can be played from a USB flash drive with these requirements:
- Format: Fat 12, FAT 16, or
- Drive Capacity: less than
4 GB (1 partition type)
- Max Current: 500 mA
- Bit Rates:
- MP3: 32-320 kbps
- WMA: 5-192 kbps
- Sampling Frequencies: 8 kHz-48 kHz
Disc Protection: If an ejected disc is not removed within
15 seconds, the disc is automatically inserted again into the loading slot to
Resume: If you change the source from CD, SD card, or USB
drive, playback also stops (without ejecting). When you return to that source,
playback starts from the point where it stopped previously.
AM/FM Tuner With Title Assignment: The KD-S100 features a
built-in AM/FM tuner with three FM bands and one AM band. Each AM/FM band can
hold up to six station presets. You can store these presets manually or have
the radio store them automatically. You can also assign names (up to 16
characters) for 30 AM/FM station frequencies. If an FM stereo broadcast is hard
to receive, you can manually switch the tuner to Mono operation. You can also
switch the tuner's IF filter to Wide or Auto to increase/decrease the
Title Assignment: In addition to naming radio frequencies,
names can be assigned to 30 CDs (up to 32 characters) and each external
component (up to 16 characters).
Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-S100 with
factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain
Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp
Gain Control is set to Low PWR, the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30
(maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the
Amp Gain Control to High PWR, and the volume control will range from 0 to 50.
The internal amp can also be turned off when using external amps to power all
the speakers in the system.
3 Pair of Preamp Outputs: The KD-S100 is equipped with 2 pair
of 5.0V preamp outputs (front/rear), along with a 2.0V subwoofer preamp output.
The front and rear preamp outputs allow fader control, while the subwoofer preamp
output is non-fading.
Subwoofer Control: The unit's subwoofer preamp output features
a low-pass filter with selectable crossover point (31.5 Hz, 40 Hz, 50 Hz, 63 Hz,
80 Hz, 100 Hz, 125 Hz, 160 Hz, or 200 Hz) and slope (6 dB/oct, 12 dB/oct, or 18
dB/oct). The subwoofer output level is variable from 0 to +12.
Auxiliary Input: Stereo RCA jacks are provided on the back
of the KD-S100 to allow the connection of an external audio source (portable,
video system, etc).
Compatibility with Optional Input Adapter: An optional JVC
line input adapter (item numbers 105KSU57 or 257KSU58) may be used to provide
an additional auxiliary input on this unit. This feature allows you to connect
a portable audio player, such as a portable MP3 player, to this unit as an
additional audio source. The adapter connects to the CD changer input on this
unit. When the adapter is connected to this unit, a CD changer cannot be connected.
Volume Adjust: The input level of each source (other than
FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant
volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable
from -5 to +5.
Detachable Face: This unit features Detachable Face Security.
A face-fixing screw is supplied for making the face non-detachable, if desired.
The unit comes with a hard plastic face case to store the receiver's faceplate
Clock Display: With the ignition off, when you press the
display button the clock is displayed for 5 seconds, then turned off.
Display Dimmer: The display dimmer can be set to Off (normal
brightness at all times), On (display is always dimmed), Auto (display dims
when 12 volts is applied to the illumination lead), or Time Set (program the
time range for the dimmer to engage).
Wireless Remote Control: The KD-S100 comes supplied with a
wireless remote control (RM-RK300); the remote has Power, Attenuator (mute),
Source, Band, Tracking, and Volume functions, plus numeric buttons 1-6.
Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The KD-S100 has a
steering wheel remote input on the back panel. When used with the optional PAC
SWI-JACK interface (item number 127SWIJACK), you can retain the use of your
steering wheel and/or rear seat radio controls when replacing the factory head
unit in select vehicles. The SWI-JACK is compatible with over 95% of the
vehicles made from 1986 to the present. Compatible vehicles include many Acura,
Audi, BMW, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda,
Hummer, Infiniti, Isuzu, Jaguar, Jeep, Kia, Land Rover, Lexus, Lincoln, Mazda,
Mercury, Mini, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Plymouth, Pontiac, Saab, Saturn,
Suzuki, Toyota, and Volkswagen vehicles and Harley Davidson motorcycles. Please
consult the Crutchfield Vehicle Selector to confirm compatibility with your
