If you've got a double-DIN dash opening, take out that wimpy factory radio and slide in some Kenwood quality. The DPX308U CD receiver offers strong performance and useful features that'll make you wonder why you waited so long to replace your old radio.
Ready to roll with your iPod®
Once you plug your player into the handy front-panel USB input, just press the "iPod" button to the left of the big control knob and you're ready to go. You'll feel right at home when you navigate your tracks and playlists, with the help of easy-to-use search tools like Alphabet Search. The dedicated "Search" and "Return" keys eliminate the need to work through menus when you're making a quick search.
You can also switch quickly to "passenger mode" to control your iPod® or iPhone® from the device — useful if you're listening to streaming content like Internet radio stations. Kenwood also includes a wireless remote so your passengers can control the entertainment while you worry about the driving.
Variable color options
Playing nice with your iPod is important, but you want a new receiver to look good, too. The DPX308U cuts a distinctive figure with its sleek styling, glossy exterior, and prominent control knob. To top it off, you can set the display and button colors to match your car's interior. You'll be looking forward to driving at night, when you can turn up the sound and the lights.
Sound quality to rock your ride
This Kenwood's built-in MOSFET amp will impress you with its clean power, so turn it up if you want. You can use the 3-band equalizer for precise adjustment of the highs, mids, and lows, while eight EQ presets allow quick shifts to a tone curve that matches your music. The Speaker Settings function tailors the output of the receiver to match the size and type of speakers you've got installed in your vehicle.
Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter 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 the Kenwood, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.
iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.
