Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
System Q Sound Control:
The following six EQ curves are preset into memory, allowing you to recall the
best preset EQ curve for different types of music: Rock, Pops, Easy, Top 40,
Jazz, and Flat. Each preset has its own level settings for bass (100Hz),
midrange (1kHz), and treble (10kHz).
Speaker Settings: The Speaker
Setting function tailors the System Q Sound Control settings according to the
type of speakers in your vehicle. You may select a Speaker Setting of "SP-F"
(flat), "SP-O" (for OEM factory speaker systems), "SP-6" (for systems with 6"
and 6"x9" speakers), or "SP-5" (for systems with 4" and 5" speakers).
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 -8 to 0.
CR-2 Advanced Tuner: This unit
uses Kenwood's CR-2 Advanced tuner for clear radio reception. 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.
Clean Reception System Circuit
(CRSC): This circuit controls multi-path distortion by reducing stereo
separation. As stereo separation is reduced, multi-path has less effect on the
radio signal, improving reception in areas with tall buildings and mountains.
The CRSC circuit can be turned on or off.
Last Position Memory:
If the unit is shut off or switched to the tuner mode while a CD is playing, the
next time CD is selected as the source, playback will resume from the point
where it left off.
Display: When the unit is in Standby mode, the face/button illumination
is "keyed." When the Clock Display is turned on and
the unit is in Standby mode, the Clock Display is also "keyed." Pressing and
holding the source button turns the unit off completely.
