7-Way Rotary Commander:
The 7-Way Rotary Commander is like a musical joystick, allowing you to control
90% of the unit's functions and features.
MOSFET 60 Higher Power:
This receiver is
equipped with a 60 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier.
Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is
smaller and more efficient, and it delivers power with less distortion and
absolutely zero on/off switching noise.
Note: Using the switch
on the bottom of the chassis, you can set the amplifier output to 60
watts x 4 or 40 watts x 4.
Satellite Radio Tuner Compatible:
This unit can control an optional Pioneer XM or SIRIUS tuner (sold separately).
Compatible with Optional TV
Tuner: This head unit can control an
optional Pioneer TV tuner (not supplied).
Curves: This model has "SUPER BASS",
"POWERFUL", "NATURAL", "VOCAL", "CUSTOM", and "FLAT" preset EQ curves. The
"CUSTOM" curve is one that you create and store in memory. A separate "CUSTOM"
curve can be created and stored in memory for each source.
This feature allows you to boost the current EQ setting for even more powerful
This unit includes a 3-band
parametric EQ with Selectable Q Factor. You may select a low (40, 80, 100 or
160Hz), mid (200, 500, 1k or 2kHz) and high frequency (3.15k, 8k, 10k or
12.5kHz) to boost or cut within a range of -6dB to +6dB.
The Q factor (slope of
the boost or cut) may be selected from one of the following four options: 2N
(narrow), 1N, 1W and 2W (wide). Selecting a narrow (steep) Q factor results in
frequencies around the center frequency to be affected less by the boost or cut
than they are with a wide Q factor. This feature is useful for taming frequency
response problems caused by the dimensions, materials and speaker locations of a
Bass and Treble Cut-off Frequencies:
The cut-off frequencies for the bass and treble controls can be set
independently of the 3-band parametric equalizer adjustments. The bass cut-off
frequency can be set to 40Hz, 63Hz, 100Hz or 160Hz. The treble cut-off frequency
can be set to 2.5kHz, 4kHz, 6.3kHz or 10kHz. The bass and treble controls have
an adjustment range of -6 to +6.
Equalizer (SFEQ): The SFEQ feature is made to
enhance the soundstage in the front of the vehicle by increasing the clarity of
vocals and instruments. There are two primary SFEQ modes ("FRT1" and "FRT2"),
and there is a "CUSTOM" mode. The "FRT1" mode boosts the treble on the front
outputs while boosting the bass on the rear outputs; when this mode is selected,
treble adjustments affect the front channels only, and bass adjustments affect
only the rear channels.
The "FRT2" mode boosts
the treble and bass on the front outputs while boosting only the bass on the
rear outputs; when this mode is selected, treble adjustments affect the front
channels only, and bass adjustments affect the front and rear channels. You may
select "HI" or "LOW" operation for the "FRT1" and "FRT2" modes; the "HI" setting
of each mode provides a more pronounced effect than the "LOW" setting. If you
adjust the bass or treble setting while an SFEQ mode is on, the adjustment is
applied to the selected SFEQ mode and that setting is kept in memory as the
"CUSTOM" SFEQ mode. The SFEQ feature also includes a seating position setting
that helps tailor the sound to where people are sitting in the vehicle.
Automatic Sound Levelizer
(ASL): During driving, road noise in
the car changes according to the driving speed and road conditions. The
Automatic Sound Levelizer monitors the road noise and automatically increases
the unit's volume level, if the road noise becomes greater. The sensitivity of
this feature can be set to one of five levels (low, mid-low, mid, mid-high, or
You can select "Low", "Mid" or "High" for different levels of loudness
Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets
you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume
when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM
tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from
-4 dB to +4 dB.
High-pass Filter: When you
don't want sound in the subwoofer frequency range output from the front and rear
speakers, you may activate the built-in high-pass filter. You may select a
filter frequency of 50Hz, 80Hz, or 125Hz.
In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, there is one set of outputs
that may be set for "subwoofer" or "non-fading" output. When set to
"non-fading", the signal is full range and the output level is user selectable
from -6 to +6. When set to "subwoofer", the outputs are non-fading, and they may
be set for normal or reverse phase, 50Hz/80Hz/125Hz low-pass output, and the
level is user selectable from -6 to +6.
can choose to use the rear channel output (speaker and preout) for full-range
speaker or subwoofer. If you select "subwoofer", you can connect a 4-ohm
subwoofer directly to each rear speaker lead without using an external
IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features
Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection
of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In
addition, the Supertuner IIID creates enhanced stereo during multi-path
interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital
processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo
separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.
This unit can play MP3/WMA files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in
ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. MP3 files with a bit rate
from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with a constant bit rate from 48-320 kbps, and WMA
files with a variable bit rate from 48-384 kbps are supported.
and BMX Functions: Using the "COMP" (compression) and "BMX" functions, you
can adjust the playback quality of the CD player. Each function may be set to
one of two levels or off. The "COMP" function
compresses the audio signal to eliminate distortion caused by the imbalances
between the loudest and softest sounds when played at high volumes. The "BMX"
function controls sound reverberations to give playback a fuller sound.
CD-R/CD-RW Skip Function:
Some CD-R/W recorders allow you to assign skip ID tags to tracks that you never
want to hear. When a track has been assigned a track skip ID, compatible units
will recognize the skip ID information and skip over that track. This player
recognizes track skip IDs, so CD-R and CD-RW discs with skip ID information will
be played back as intended.
Title Memory: Titles of up to 10
characters each can be entered into memory for up to 48 discs. When a compatible
changer is connected, titles of up to 10 characters each can be entered into
memory for up to 100 discs in the changer.
Optional Aux Input: When used
with item 130CDRB10 (sold separately) or item 130CDRB20 (sold separately), this
unit can accept input from an auxiliary source, such as a portable CD or MD
player. When item 130CDRB10 is used, a CD changer cannot be connected to this
unit. Item 130CDRB20 allows you to connect an optional Pioneer CD changer and an
auxiliary source to this unit.
When the illumination wire of this unit
receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on in the "Initial
Setting" menu, the display will dim to a preset level. When the power and
constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage
(when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the
unit is turned off completely.
Warning Tone: If the front
panel is not detached from the head unit within four seconds of turning off the
ignition, a warning tone will sound. This feature can be turned On or Off.
ITS (Instant Track
The ITS function can be used to program automatic playback
of up to 99 tracks per disc for up to 100 discs. With changers sold before the
CDX-P1250 and CDX-P650, up to 24 tracks can be stored in the playlist.

allows you to display disc titles that you have entered.
From the list, you can select a disc for playback.
Display: When used with a CD Text
compatible Pioneer CD changer, this unit will display the titles of CD Text
encoded discs that are played in the changer. When playing a CD Text disc on a
CD Text compatible changer, you cannot switch to the Disc Title Input mode. CD
Text disc titles, artist names and track titles longer than 14 characters may be
scrolled to reveal the entire string of text.
Quality Adjustment: Using the "COMP"
(compression) and "DBE" (dynamic bass emphasis) functions, you can adjust the
playback quality of the changer. Each function may be set to one of two levels
or off. The "COMP" function compresses the audio
signal to eliminate distortions caused by the imbalances between the loudest and
softest sounds when played at high volumes. The "DBE" function boosts bass
frequencies to give your music a more full sound.
For these functions to work, they must be supported by the Pioneer CD
