Our take on the Kenwood DDX371

by Ken Nail
Kenwood

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

Add Bluetooth® and multi-media versatility

Kenwood's DDX371 sets a high mark for in-dash DVD receivers, offering compatibility with many iPhone® apps, comprehensive iPod® controls, and built-in Bluetooth. Its bright 6.1" touchscreen and simple menu interface make it easy to use, so you can spend your time enjoying its many features and less time reading the manual.

Getting started with Bluetooth is easy. When you connect your iPhone to the USB port, the receiver automatically recognizes the phone and sends out a pairing request. Just press a button on the DDX371's touchscreen and you're ready to go.

Kenwood DDX371 DVD receiver

Movies look fantastic on the Kenwood's screen when you're parked.

iPhone® app control

Kenwood's iPhone App Mode lets you take control of some cool apps from the receiver's touchscreen — like video content from sources like Netflix and YouTube when your car's parked (extra cables required). The DDX371 also offers fingertip control over your Pandora® Internet radio stations when your smartphone's connected via USB or Bluetooth. Another big plus — if you've got Garmin's impressive Street Pilot app loaded on your iPhone 4 or 4S (or iPad® 1, 2, and 3), you can display maps and directions on the receiver's screen, so you can stay on course during your travels.

Play your music and videos

When your iPod or iPhone's connected, you can view album art and browse through your playlists with a few swipes of your finger. And your legacy media is good to go too — the DDX371 plays all your CDs, DVDs, and recordable discs, and you can plug a thumb drive loaded with hours of music into the receiver's USB input. This Kenwood also gives you a rear input for your A/V sources. And if you think that radio isn't cool any more, add a SiriusXM tuner to this Kenwood and find out how entertaining satellite radio can be.

You can watch your favorite DVDs on the built-in screen whenever you're parked. But if you're traveling, you can entertain your back seat passengers while you drive — just set them up with an external screen and wireless headphones and they can watch video content while you drive.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Kenwood stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and this Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

Note: Bluetooth compatibility with this device may vary, depending on your phone and service provider.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Touchscreen Display

    6.1" Touchscreen Display: The Kenwood DDX371 features a fixed 6.1" wide, 16:9 touchscreen display with a TFT active matrix system. The screen has a resolution of 800 (H) x 480 (V) x RGB with 1,152,000 total pixels. This unit has touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics, making menu navigation easy.

    • Aspect Ratio: You can change the aspect ratio for video playback. You can select from Full (16:9), Just (4:3 LB), Normal (4:3), or Auto (automatically selects to match incoming video signal) .
    • Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the unit's display brightness, contrast, color, tint, sharpness, and black level to suit your viewing needs during video playback.
    • Custom Background Images: You can download a still image (800 x 600) for use as the unit's background from a connected USB thumbdrive.
    • Customized Top Menu: You can select and arrange which sources and icons display on the unit's Top Menu screen for easier, quicker access. Select the "ALL SRC" icon to see all sources at one time.

    Note: For your convenience, this unit is equipped with a multiple language display. Select between 18 different languages including English, Spanish, French and others.

    Front-Panel Controls w/ Variable Color Illumination: In addition to the touchscreen controls, the unit includes frequently used buttons and a rotary-dial along the left edge of the screen. You can adjust the head unit's button illumination from the following preset colors - Blue, Purple, Sky Blue, Yellow, Green, Amber, Red, Pink, White or Scan (Scans through all preset colors). You can also select a custom "User" color that is adjusted between Red, Green, and Blue (values range: 0-31). The Eject and Kenwood logo remain red, regardless of variable color illumination setting.

    Dimmer: The dimmer function will dim this unit's display and button illumination automatically when the vehicle light switch is turned On when you connect orange/white Illumination wire of this player's harness. You can also manually dim the unit's display and button illumination. You can adjust the dimmer level from -15 to +5.

    Clock Display: The DVD receiver offers a 12-hour clock which is visible from any source or menu screen. With your vehicle's key in the accessory or start position, the head unit will continue to display the LCD background image, clock, and button illumination during "Standby" mode. Pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely.

    Parking Brake Detection: To prevent the display of video while the vehicle is in motion, the light green wire (attached to rear-chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's parking brake detection circuit. You cannot view video unless your vehicle's parking brake is fully engaged. If you attempt to view video without the parking brake engaged, the unit's LCD touchscreen will simply display a blue screen and "Parking Off". While your vehicle is in motion (parking brake off), you can still view all of the head unit's menu screens/settings, source information, metadata, and album artwork.

    2-DIN Chassis: The DDX371 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double-DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve. As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The Kenwood DDX371 is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (2.1+EDR) allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.5 (Hands Free Profile), OPP 1.1 (Object Push Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.3 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the Kenwood DDX371. Visit Kenwood's Support Site for a complete list of compatible Bluetooth enabled phones

    SPP (Secure Simple Pairing): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the Kenwood DDX371 without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. The head unit will even establish pairing automatically with the Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+), even if the Bluetooth function is deactivated on the device. Once a device is paired, the registered Bluetooth device will automatically connect to the receiver when it is in close proximity (up to 30') to the receiver. You can register up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices with the Kenwood head unit (only one paired phone can be used at a time).

    Hands-Free Communication w/ External Mic: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. The touchscreen controls of the DDX371 can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (featuring adjustable gain), so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers (All or Front only). During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering a Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. You can answer the call from the head unit's touchscreen, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately in 5 seconds.
    • Dialing a Number: Using the DDX371, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:
      • Entering a Phone Number: Allows you to directly dial a phone number up to 32 digits from the head unit's touchscreen.
      • Speed (Preset) Dialing: Allows you to register up to 6 phone numbers for quick dialing. The preset numbers can be accessed from the head unit's touchscreen.
      • Phone Book: You can dial by using the downloaded phone book. You can download phone book data from your cell phone to the DDX371. Up to 5,000 numbers can be stored for each registered cell phone. Each number can be up to 32 digits long and each name can be up to 50 characters long. You can search the phone book in alphabetical order.
      • Call History: The Call History is a list of calls that have originated from and were received by this unit that you can dial. You can select Outgoing, Incoming, or Missed calls (up to 50 each).
      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone.
    Note: This unit allows you to answer a call or dial out using any option without engaging the vehicle's parking brake.

    External Microphone: The Kenwood DDX371 includes an external microphone to carry on your side of your phone conversation and voice command dialing. The external wired microphone offers improved audio quality versus an integrated microphone, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise. You can adjust the volume level and noise cancellation of the microphone without affecting the other sources. The external microphone features an attached 10' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on the rear-panel of the head unit. The microphone offers an integrated mounting bracket which can be clipped to your vehicle's sun-visor or taped to your dash. The external microphone measures 0.525" (diameter) x 1.505" (depth).

    SMS: If your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone is compatible with SMS (Short Message Service), the Kenwood head unit will notify you when a message has been received. You must then use your phone to check the message. You cannot read, edit, or send a message through this unit.

    Wireless Audio Streaming (w/ Metadata Display): The Kenwood DDX371 also supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth enabled audio player or smartphone. The DDX371 will be able to control basic playback functions of your Bluetooth device's stored music; such as Play/Pause, Skip Next/Previous, Fast Forward/Rewind and Random/Repeat. The head unit will also display your stored music's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title. The DDX371 also supports audio streaming of music apps downloaded on your smartphone with metadata display and limited control. Advanced music control of your music apps will still need be done via your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone. When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Siri Eyes Free Control: When paired and connected with an iPhone 4S or 5/5C/5S via Bluetooth (not USB), the Kenwood DDX371 has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel controls and external microphone. Simply press-and-hold down on the head unit's "VOICE/TEL" button to engage Siri and use the included microphone to communicate with Siri. Siri's voice will heard through your vehicle's speakers. All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the DDX371 and its microphone. The head unit's LCD touchscreen will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the Kenwood DDX371; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Note: You can ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone 4S/5/5C/5S. The head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

The USB port enables playback of MP3, WMA, AAC, and WAV audio files; as well as JPEG still-picture files stored on a compatible USB memory device. The DDX371 also supports video playback of MPEG1/MPEG2 video files from a connected portable USB MSC device.

    iPod/iPhone Integration

    iPod Audio/Video Playback: The Kenwood DDX371 supports direct connection of your 30-pin or Lightning-connector iPod/iPhone through its rear-panel USB port and 3.5mm input. The DDX371 offers audio/video playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of select Apple iPod/iPhone models. Video can only be displayed while the vehicle is in park.

    • 30-Pin Dock Connector: If you own an older iPod/iPhone with the 30-pin dock connector, you can enjoy audio and video files on your Apple device through the Kenwood DDX371. Using Kenwood's KCA-IP202 iPod video cable (113KCIP202, sold separately), you can enjoy audio playback of your stored music and music apps on your iPod/iPhone; plus video playback of your stored movies and video apps on your iPod/iPhone through the Kenwood DDX371. If you only desire audio playback, you can use Kenwood's KCA-IP102 iPod cable (113KCIP102, sold separately) or the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the DDX371.
    • Lightning Connector: If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the Kenwood DDX371 for audio playback only. You'll be able to listen to stored music and music apps on your Lightning-connector Apple device through the Kenwood DVD receiver. Video playback is not supported.

    Note: The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "iPod" in order to playback audio/video from your connected iPod/iPhone, using the KCA-IP202 cable. The unit's rear-panel AV input must be set to "AV-IN2" in order to use the Kenwood KCA-IP102 iPod cable or the cable that came with your Apple device for audio playback only.

    iPod/iPhone Control: The Kenwood DDX371 lets you control your iPod/iPhone from the head unit's touchscreen, your iPod/iPhone's touchscreen/clickwheel, or a downloaded app.

    • Head Unit Control Mode: The Kenwood head unit allows you to navigate your iPod's music library by Playlist, Artists, Album, Song, Genre, Song, Podcast, or Audiobook. Your iPod's video library can be searched by Video Playlist, Movie, Music Video, TV Show, Video Podcast, Rented Movie, or iTunesU. You can then search each of these categories using the head unit's touchscreen slider function (categories will be listed in alphabetical order). The head unit also supports basic playback functions such as Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Rewind, Previous/Next Track and  Repeat/Random of your connected iPod/iPhone. Newer iPod/iPhones with iOS 6.0+ will still allow you to navigate stored music and movies from the Apple device's touchscreen; older iPod/iPhone devices will be locked during connection.
    • iPod/App Control Mode: The iPod/App control mode allows you to navigate stored music and movies from your older Apple device (iOS 5.1.1 and earlier). You'll still have access to basic playback controls (like Play/Pause, Fast Forward/Reverse, Previous/Next Track) from the head unit, but advanced navigation functions will be locked. The iPod/App mode also lets you listen to your favorite music apps, streamed to your 30-pin or Lightning-connector iPhone (iOS 3.0+) through the Kenwood head unit and your vehicle's speakers. You can even watch video on the Kenwood DVD receiver's touchscreen from select streaming movie apps (like Netflix) downloaded on your iPhone 4/4S (iOS 4.0+), via the Kenwood KCA-IP202 iPod video cable (sold separately). Not all apps will be compatible and control will be limited.
    Note: Access to your iPhone's downloaded applications will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet.

    Song/Artist Info & Album Art: In Head Unit Control mode, the DDX371 will display your iPod/iPhone's stored music information including Track number, Elapsed playing time, Song/Album title, Artist name, and Album art. There is no music information displayed when this unit is set to iPod/App Control mode. Instead, the head unit will display "iPhone App and iPod Control Mode" (song/artist information will need to viewed on your iPod/iPhone's LCD screen).

    Battery Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position. This unit does not charge the iPad. If your iPod/iPhone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it.

    Garmin App: In addition, the optional KCA-IP202 iPod cable (113KCIP202, sold separately) allows you to view navigation maps and get audible/visual directions on the DDX371's touchscreen, when the Garmin StreetPilot Onboard USA app ($49.99), and the Vehicle Display Integration in-app option ($49.99) are both downloaded to your connected iPhone (4/4S) or iPad (1/2/3); running iOS 5.1 or later. The Garmin StreetPilot Onboard USA app contains NAVTEQ map data for the United States (lower 49 states); with over a million POIs, turn-by turn directions, lane assist with junction view, traffic updates, and speed limit alerts. Because the map data is downloaded onto your iPhone and does not live on the network, wireless coverage is not required to navigate. Once you have selected your destination on your connected iPhone, your map route will be visible on the DDX371's touchscreen (even with parking brake disengaged) and turn-by-turn directions can be heard through your car stereo speakers. You will continue to use your iPhone's touchscreen to control the Garmin StreetPilot USA app. The screen of your iPhone and the screen of the Kenwood DDX371 may not be identical.

    Note: A Garmin StreetPilot Onboard app with North American maps (US, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico, USVI, and more) is also available for $59.99.

    • *If you have an iPod nano (7th gen), iPod touch (5th gen), iPhone 5/5C/5S, iPad 4, or iPad mini; use the Lighting-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect to the head unit. These Apple devices only support audio playback (no video output).
    • Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is available.

    AM/FM+Pandora+SiriusXM Radio

    AM/FM Tuner: The Kenwood DDX371 features a built-in AM/FM tuner. The unit's tuner features RDS (Radio Data System). RDS is a service used by some radio stations to transmit data outside of normal radio broadcast signals. When an RDS station is received, you can immediately find out what kind of data is being transmitted by looking at the program service name which appears in the display after the frequency. RDS features an emergency transmission function which interrupts regular programming to broadcast an emergency announcement (such as a tornado or severe storm). There is also a switchable Traffic Information function, which will automatically tune a traffic bulletin when it is broadcast, even when you're not listening to the radio.

    • Seek Modes: You can choose one of three tuning modes: Auto 1 (seek tuning), Auto 2 (cycles through and tunes the selected band's preset stations only with each button press), or Manual.
    • Presets: Not only does the multimedia receiver's tuner allow you manually enter your desired presets you can choose to have the unit automatically put stations with good reception in the memory banks automatically; this is a handy feature when traveling.
    • Mono Mode: This feature reduces the noise (static) when a stereo broadcast is received as monaural (for FM band only).

    Pandora App (for iPhone/Android/Blackberry): The free Pandora App (either from iTunes Apps, Google Play, or BlackBerry App World) lets you play music from the Pandora music service through the Kenwood DDX371 using your USB-connected Apple iPhone (iOS 5.0+) or Bluetooth paired Android/Blackberry smartphone.  Your compatible mobile device will need an active Data Plan account with connection to the Internet via 3G, EDGE, or WiFi. You will also need a Pandora music service account. The Kenwood DDX371 provides control over the Pandora music service and displays Artist, Album, and Song information.

    • Station/Genre List: You can select Pandora stations from your Station or Genre List by date or alphabetically (A-Z). You can also choose to randomly playback songs from all your registered stations.
    • Create New Station: New stations can be created based on the current songs or artists playing on Pandora.
    • Skip Songs: You can skip song tracks within a station. You cannot skip back to a previous song. Pandora limits the number of skips allowed.
    • Thumbs Up/Down: You can give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down to help Pandora personalize stations to suit your preferences.
    • Bookmarking: The song or artist currently being played can be bookmarked & stored in your Pandora account.
    Note: Access to the Pandora service will depend on the availability of a cellular and/or WiFi network for purposes of allowing your iPhone to connect to the Internet. Pandora is not supported in Canada & only available in the United States.

    SiriusXM Ready: The Kenwood DDX371 comes ready for SiriusXM programming with access to XM and Sirius Satellite Radio stations. Thanks to its proprietary SiriusXM Connect port, you can add the optional SXV200V1 SiriusXM Connect tuner and receive more than 150 channels of exclusive programming directly from SiriusXM, via the "SiriusXM All Access" package (subscription required). Visit SiriusXM.com for a complete list of subscription options and channel guide. Additional features of the SXV200 SiriusXM Connect tuner include:

    • Channel list displays a list of all available channels
    • Category Search searches for channels in a certain category
    • Displayed Information such as Channel Name, Artist Name, & Song Title can be viewed on the head unit's LCD
    • Up to 24 SiriusXM Satellite Radio station presets
    • Supports the SiriusXM Instant Replay function, so you can pause, rewind, and replay up to 60 minutes of live content
    • Channels containing unsuitable content for children can be blocked
    Note: A separate SiriusXM Satellite Radio subscription is required (operates on the XM Network). However, you can easily add this SiriusXM tuner to an existing Sirius or XM account for a Multi-Radio Discount Plan.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The Kenwood DDX371 utilizes a 24-bit digital to analog converter for superior sound quality with a Signal to Noise ratio up to 99dB.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Kenwood DDX371 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 DDX371 are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels

    6ch/4V Preamp Outputs: The DDX371 features front, rear and subwoofer 4.0-volt preamp outputs. The front and rear speaker preamp outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading. The front, rear, and subwoofer preamp outputs are fixed to the rear chassis of the head unit.

    Front & Rear High-Pass Filter: The DDX371 features an independent High-Pass Crossover for the front & rear channels when your front & rear speakers are connected by the unit's speaker-outputs or preamp-outputs. You can adjust the high-pass crossover from 'Through' (off), 40, 60, 80, 100, 120, 150, 180, or 220 Hz. The "Through" selection is a full-range setting. This feature is very helpful when you have smaller-type speakers in the front and larger-type speakers installed in the rear of the vehicle.

    Subwoofer Controls: The Kenwood DDX371 offers the following subwoofer controls, when you have the unit's subwoofer preamp output activated.

    • Low Pass Filter: The receiver features a built-in Low Pass Filter control for the preamp-output, when the output is set to Subwoofer. You can select from 50, 60, 80, Hz, 100 Hz, 120 Hz, or 'Through' (off).
    • Subwoofer Phase: You can adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees (Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).
    • Subwoofer Level: Once the Subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can independently control the subwoofer preamp output level (-50 to +10) from the DVD receiver.

    Speaker Type Setting: This feature tailors the DDX371 according to the type of front speakers in your vehicle. You may select Standard (for speakers with a general diameter), Narrow (for speakers with a small diameter), Middle (for speakers with a medium diameter), or Wide (for speakers with a large diameter).

    Equalizer: Eight EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the best preset EQ curve for different types of music. Each preset has its own level settings for bass (100Hz), midrange (1kHz), and treble (12.5kHz). You can choose from the following preset EQ curves - Rock, Pops, Easy, Top 40, Jazz, Natural, Flat, and User. The DDX371 features independent Bass, Treble, and Midrange control when the Preset EQ is in User mode. EQ Pro allows you to adjust the following settings for the Bass, Treble and Mid frequency levels.

    EQ Pro
    Center Frequency Q-Factor Bass Extension Level
    Bass 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 100, 120, or 150 Hz 1.00, 1.25, 1.50, or 2.00 On/Off -8 to +8
    Midrange 0.5k, 1.0k, 1.5k, or 2.0k Hz 1.00 or 2.00 N/A
    Treble 10.0k, 12.5k, 15.0k, or 17.5k Hz N/A N/A
    Note: You can store bass, middle and treble tone settings for each source (Disc, Tuner, AV, USB, iPod, and Pandora).

    Sound Enhancements: The head unit provides further sound enhancements for your car audio system.

    • Loudness: This function enhances low and high frequencies to make the sound clearer lower volumes.
    • Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one source to another. The available settings range from -15 to +6.
    • Dynamic Range: The dynamic range can be adjusted by selecting either Normal, Wide or Dialog. Dialog makes the total sound volume become larger as compared with Wide and Normal, allowing you to listen to the movie's dialogue more clearly. This is effective only on Dolby Digital software.

    Key Beep: The in-dash multimedia head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation. This function can be turned On or Off.

    AV Connection

    Dual A/V Inputs: The Kenwood DDX371 DVD receiver is fitted with two rear-panel minijack (3.5mm) audio/video inputs to connect external AV sources, such as a game system, Blu-ray player, or TV tuner. The rear-panel AV input labeled "AV-IN2" also serves as the input for Kenwood's proprietary KCA-IP202 iPod video cable.

    Camera Input: The unit features a composite video input for connecting an optional rear view camera, such as the Kenwood CMOS-210 (113CMOS210, sold separately). The video from this connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into Reverse gear. The purple/white wire (attached to the rear chassis) must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.5 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    A/V Output (Dual Zone): The unit features a composite video and 3.5mm audio jack to output A/V signals to an optional monitor and headphone system in the rear of your vehicle. You can select between a 16:9, 4:3 LB, or 4:3 PS Aspect Ratio for the unit's video output to match your connected monitor. The audio/video source which you can output to a separate monitor and headphone system depends on the current source that is being played back on the Kenwood DVD receiver.

    DVD Receiver Source A/V Output Source
    DVD DVD, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    Tuner/SiriusXM (optional tuner required) DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    USB USB, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    iPod iPod, AV-IN1, or Off
    Pandora AV-IN1, or Off
    AV-IN1/AV-IN2 DVD, USB, iPod, AV-IN1, AV-IN2, or Off
    Note: The volume of the A/V output will be controlled by your rear entertainment system.

    Remote Control

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input wire (blue/yellow) within the included wiring harness that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Optional Remote Control: The optional Kenwood KNA-RCDV331 IR wireless remote control (113RCDV331, sold separately) unit is designed to operate this Kenwood multimedia head unit. The wireless remote controller operates off of two supplied "AAA" batteries. The remote operates off of IR transmission so the KNA-RCDV331 must be pointed at the front-panel of your compatible Kenwood head unit within direct line of sight.

    This is an excellent Unit. If you do not need navigation this is a great choice. The back up camera is perfect for attaching a trailer without assistance.
    Pros:
    tons of features for the money.
    Cons:
    a bit of work to install in 2004 f250. Crutchfield talked me through the install excellent customer service

    Kenwood DDX371

    Written By Matt, Platteville, WI on Saturday, September 13, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    The main reasons for replacing the stock radio in my 2006 Chrysler 330C were to have hands free calling, mp3 playback via flash drive, to retain steering wheel controls, and touch screen capability all at an affordable cost. The secondary reasons were to have the ability to add monitors in the back seat for the kids and to add a backup camera in the future. The nice to have features included extended Bluetooth capabilities for streaming Pandora and audio files from my Galaxy S4. Based on the listed reasons I am very happy with this purchase.

    Hands free calling works well and sounds very good on both sides of the connection. Not as good as factory installed hands free calling but they have the advantage of better microphone placement than any aftermarket unit ever will.

    The touch screen controls are nice and responsive. Given my hand size some of the buttons could be larger but they are well sized to the size of the screen. The screen itself always looks crisp and sharp except when sunlight hits it directly and washes it out but that's common with all LCD screens that I have encountered.

    Understanding that this is an entry level DVD receiver there are still some things I thought would be better. First and foremost is the speed in which a flash drive is read and browsed through. It is slow. Painfully slow. I have several 4Gb drives to limit the volume of information to speed this process. I shudder to think how slow browsing would be on a 16 or 32Gb volume.
    Pros:
    everything it advertises it does it does well.
    Cons:
    no front USB port slow flash drive browsing clunky interface (it be nice to customize what info shows during playback)

    This Kenwood double din head unit fits nicely in my 2006 Mustang GT. The instructions that came with the install kit were fairly easy to follow had some concerns with the wiring that didnt make sense. With a little research found out how the 12v to 5v converter was supposed to be wired in. And the factory pre-amp wiring kit when looked up by part number shows its supposed to have 4 rcas plugs. If doing the kit in a Mustang with factory subs in the doors put them in the sub preouts on the back of the head unit(not the front preouts like the instructions say). Overall quality of the product itself i was extremely pleased with. I usually run Pioneer in everything and this is my first dvd head unit let alone Kenwood and am very impressed with the amount of customizing that this product has. Even got the button colors to match my instrument panels color as well.

    This headunit cleans up my dash. Looks great! I'm running polk DXi571 all four speakers. They are great for mids and highs, but not really bass to complete the music. Buy the remote control, its a reach to adjust volume if your seat is set as mine. Remote control next on my list including 4" lift. The oem black screws you remove from factory radio will not work with the aftermarket metra dash kit using spacers that are included. You will need to cut off the backside plastic on the dash kit to slide it in. I installed DIY with a 2 minute call to Crutchfield about wire harness and complete! Sits flush with dash, works great, now I just need to add a sub and amp for complete sound. The headunit is awesome, bluetooth works great with android and pandora. Thanks Crutchfield for the help during install and great product, will be buying sub and amp soon.
    Pros:
    Great customer service, they took their time with me and helped every step!
    Cons:
    No cons on headunit or customer service!

    Easy peasy bluetooth connection and with the added iPod connector I can display movies and TV shows from my iPod. Would have liked a more expanded EQ but beggers can't be choosers...
    Pros:
    Good display, quality output, easy connections.
    Cons:
    EQ is less than expected for the Kenwood brand name.

    The Kenwood double din stereo was very easy to install with the Crutchfield vehicle-specific instructions. It looks great with the metra dash kit and sounds amazing. It works great with a subwoofer and the display is high quality. The features are semi limited if looking for top of the line but CD, Bluetooth, tuner, and telephone work great. Lastly, place the Bluetooth microphone in a strategic position in vehicle for best call quality.

    Loving my new radio

    Written By Tiffanyk319, Warner Robins, GA on Friday, September 05, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    So far I'm loving this radio. It looks good and functions like it should. I have always preferred Kenwood radios over the competition. They seem more user friendly to me. I was looking to upgrade from the stock stereo in my 2010 camaro. My requirements were it needed to be back-up camera ready, bluetooth built in for calls and audio streaming, and allow for custom tuning on the sound. This unit fit the bill and was a good deal cheaper than most of the competitors' offerings. The unit was easy to install and the interface is very intuitive. It does have a slight delay when going through menu options. I love that you can select the color of the display and upload your own images for a background. Adding the back up camera was easy and it works flawlessly every time. All in all, I'm very happy with my selection.

    My only complaints are minor - when streaming audio using bluetooth the radio selects my entire music library on my iphone instead of the last played playlist. Kind of annoying but I am enjoying "rediscovering" music. We chose not to buy the special cable from kenwood. I am happy to report that the radio will play music using the Apple lightning cord that came with my phone. Since I have the iphone 5 video streaming is not available anyways. Not a big deal to me. My only other issue is syncing my phone. This radio, while capable of syncing with up to 5 devices, only properly works when 1 phone is saved. Any more and it acts up.
    Pros:
    Competitively priced Lots of features Easy interface
    Cons:
    Slight delay when selecting menu options Bluetooth streaming picks random songs Glitchy if you sync more than 1 phone at a time

    The Kenwood DDX371 is my second attempt at installing an after-market DVD player in my Jeep Grand Cherokee. The first, a Sony WX-GT90BT, which turned out to be a complete fiasco. The folks in Tech Support were patient and helpful but that unit was apparently not comparable with my Boston sound system. I now believe otherwise, after successfully installing the Kenwood. The unshod being I now have a better unit that is easier to use and has more features that I can truly use. It was still a hassle but now operating as advertised. My favorite feature the is the hands free, which functions almost as well as the U-Connect in my Wife's Chrysler. Second is the iPod function that will stream music and other apps from an iPod Classic or iPhone. I opted to install Sirius/XM, but now find it unnecessary. Still, it's there if needed, and Sirius/XM cut my annual fee in half when I called to cancel. I don't find the sound quality to be any better than the factory system.
    Pros:
    Nice looking unit that could pass for a factory installed unity, Hand-free works perfectly. IPod connection provides a lot of entertainment flexibility. Tech Support is fantastic. Easy to switch between functions.
    Cons:
    Somewhat difficult to install given the size (especially the depth) of the unit. Instructions are poorly written and not at all intuitive.

    Great radio - I researched many radios for my 2006 Mustang before finally deciding on this one. I love it! It looks great and has so many great features!

    Installed this in a 1995 Corvette over the weekend. Unit looks great and fits the car well. I am using the Bose speakers and they sound fine. This unit is much better than the factory system. I would recommend it to anyone.
    Pros:
    I like having some new technology in my older car. This is a good fit
    Cons:
    Difficult to install quickly but the car is to blame, not the unit.

    Great unit

    This unit does everything as advertised. It is a huge improvment over my stock Ford system.
    Pros:
    Great sound, looks great & many features.
    Cons:
    No battery backup for the memory. I wish Kenwood would make the installation kit so the radio would be easier to remove.

    Very good head unit.
    Pros:
    Pros would be has a lot of good features built into it Customizable Bluetooth Easy to install EXCELLENT customer service
    Cons:
    The icons make the unit look cheap (in my opinion) Some of the advanced features are hard to get to let alone understand what they do
