The feature-packed Pioneer DEH-P9300 is a joy to behold, thanks to its revolutionary, exceptionally vivid Organic EL display. And it's easy to operate, with a rotary volume control and multipurpose "softkeys" that help to eliminate faceplate clutter.

The DEH-P9300 is a sonic powerhouse, thanks to the effective sound contouring of Easy EQ's 5 presets and 13-band equalizer, as well as built-in Digital Signal Processing. BBE sonic enhancement (often used in recording studios) can be used to bring new focus to your highs and more power to the bass.

Get up and running right out of the box with 4-way MOSFET50 power, or add component amps and subwoofers for high-volume listening. Built-in high-pass and low-pass filters optimize your full-range speakers by directing the deep bass to your subwoofers. Pioneer's handy wireless steering wheel remote is included.

This receiver is XM satellite radio-ready — you must have a subscription to XM Radio, a Pioneer XM tuner, and an XM-compatible antenna in order to receive the digital satellite radio signal. XM satellite radio offers digital-quality sound, coast-to-coast coverage, and 100 channels of music, news, sports and entertainment, all for $9.99 a month.

Why replace your factory radio?

Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

MOSFET Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion and high power output. The amplifier is strong enough to power small subwoofers to moderate volume levels in compact cars and pickups. For higher volume levels from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be connected to the provided sets of preamp outputs.

Motorized Face: The faceplate is motorized for convenient access to the CD loading slot, which is located behind the face.

Organic EL Display: This unit's display is a bright, easy to read full dot matrix display that is capable of showing 3-dimensional images. The display is easily viewed from all angles and its brightness can be set according to lighting conditions or personal preference.

Display Brightness: The display brightness can be adjusted from 0 to 31.

Display Form: This unit is equipped with two basic displays, Form 1 and Form 2. In Form 1 mode, the unit only displays text information and the source icon, whereas Form 2 mode adds a selectable wallpaper background. In each mode, you can select different Entertainment Display modes.

Entertainment Display Modes: You may select one of the following 5 Entertainment Display Modes: Movie Screen, Spectrum Analyzer, Automatic Sound Levelizer, Background Visual, or Background Still Picture. In Movie Screen mode, you can select one of the following 5 movie screens: Movie 1 (Formula 1 racing), Movie 2 (swimming dolphins), Movie 3 (moving light pattern), Movie 4 (robots), or All (cycles through all of the movie screens sequentially). In Spectrum Analyzer mode, you can choose from 4 different level meter display patterns. In Automatic Sound Levelizer mode, the unit displays the Automatic Sound Levelizer effect level. In Background Visual mode, you can select one of the following 5 background visuals: BGV 1 (two 3-dimensional Rubik's cubes in motion), BGV 2 (moving light pattern), BGV 3 (moving squiggly lines), BGV 4 (two moving grids), or BGV 5 (two 3-dimensional spheres in motion). In Background Still Picture mode, you can select one of the following 12 background still pictures: BGP 1 (trees), BGP 2 (3-dimensional shapes), BGP 3 (Formula 1 race car), BGP 4 (nature scene), BGP 5 (textured pattern), BGP 6 (textured pattern), BGP 7 (mountains), BGP 8 (sea shells), BGP 9 (swimming fish), BGP 10 (windsurfer), BGP 11 (snowboarder), or BGP 12 (two rows of dots). Note: Background Visual and Background Still Picture modes are not selectable when the unit is in Form 2 mode.

Wallpaper Patterns: You can choose from three different wallpaper patterns. Note: The wallpaper patterns are not displayed when the unit is in Form 1 mode.

Demo Modes: This unit has a Reverse Demo Mode and a Feature Demo Mode. In Reverse Demo Mode, if you do not perform an operation for a period of 30 seconds, the display begins reversing colors. It continues reversing colors every 10 seconds until a button is pushed. When the unit is turned off, the Feature Demo Mode is activated. The Feature Demo Mode displays the unit's different features and capabilities using moving graphics. In addition, the unit shows the different Entertainment Display modes.

Soft Key Operation: As you navigate the head unit's menu system, the "soft key" functions change as indicated on the display. These multipurpose "soft keys" help to eliminate faceplate clutter.

Easy EQ (EEQ) Curves: This model has "SUPER BASS", "POWERFUL", "NATURAL", "VOCAL", "CUSTOM 1", "CUSTOM 2" and "FLAT" preset EQ curves. The "CUSTOM" curves are ones that you create and store in memory; a different "CUSTOM 1" curve may be set for each source, and the "CUSTOM 2" curve is one that will be the same for all sources. 

13-Band EQ: The EQ allows you to adjust the following frequencies: 50Hz, 80Hz, 125Hz, 200Hz, 315Hz, 500Hz, 800Hz, 1.25kHz, 2kHz, 3.15kHz, 5kHz, 8kHz, and 12.5kHz. Each frequency can be adjusted from -6dB to +6dB in 1dB increments.

Digital Signal Processing: The digital signal processing includes Sound Field Control, Octaver and BBE sound. Sound Field Control incorporates four programs that reproduce the typical sound field of a studio, club, concert hall, or dome. The Octaver feature emphasizes the bass, allowing you to choose one of two levels. BBE sound processing technology makes the music sound live. The highs are clearer, naturally brilliant and more finely detailed. The lows are tight, well defined and harmonically rich. 

Position Selector: One way to assure a more natural sound is to clearly position the stereo image, putting you right in the center of the sound field. The Position Selector function lets you automatically adjust the speaker's output levels and inserts a delay time to match the number and position of occupied seats. The result is a natural sound regardless of where you are seated. You can select front seat left, front seat right, front seats, or all seats.

Time Alignment: The time alignment lets you adjust the distance between each speaker and the listening position to match the type of car. You can choose one of the five following types of cars: sedan, wagon, minivan, SUV, or custom. Custom is an adjusted time alignment that you can create yourself.

Auto-Equalizer: Using the supplied microphone, the auto-equalizer automatically measures your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates the auto-equalizer curve based on that information.

Subwoofer/Non-fading Preamp Outputs: In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, this unit has one set of non-fading subwoofer preamp outputs. When set to "On", the subwoofer outputs may be set for normal or reverse phase, 50Hz/63Hz/80Hz/100Hz/125Hz low-pass output, and the level is user-selectable from +6 to -24.

High-Pass Filters: When you don't want sound in the subwoofer frequency range output from the front and rear speaker and preamp outputs, you may activate the built-in high-pass filters. For the front and rear high-pass filters, you may independently select a filter frequency of 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz or 125Hz.

Source Level Adjustment (SLA): This function prevents radical leaps in volume when switching between sources. To use this function, you compare the volume level of the sources (AM, CD, CD changer, AUX) to the FM level, then you adjust the source level to match that heard when listening to FM. Since the reference level is based on the FM volume, SLA is not possible on FM.

XM Satellite Radio Tuner Compatible: This unit can control the optional Pioneer XM tuner (sold separately). The optional tuner will allow you to receive XM Satellite Radio. XM Satellite Radio programming will feature up to 100 channels of digital-quality music, news, talk, sports, entertainment, and children's programming. XM will transmit these channels from its studios directly to consumers nationwide via two high-powered commercial satellites. For monthly subscription fee, you will be able to receive the XM signal in your car and home using small car phone-sized antennas and XM-capable radios. 

Rotary Volume Control: A rotary volume control allows for easy volume level adjustment.

Tuner: This unit is equipped with Pioneer's remarkable Supertuner III tuner, which provides outstanding AM and FM performance.

CD Compatibility: This unit will play prerecorded CDs, finalized CD-R discs, and finalized CD-RW discs.

CD Text display: This unit will display the titles of CD Text encoded discs that are being played. When playing a CD Text disc, you cannot switch to the Disc Title Input mode. CD Text disc titles, artist names and track titles longer than 32 characters may be scrolled to reveal the entire string of text.

Disc 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.

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.

Dimmer Feature (Illumination Wire Info): When the illumination wire of this unit receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on, the display will dim to a preset level. Note: 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.

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.

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.

Cellular Mute: This feature mutes or attenuates the unit's audio output when a cellular call is received, then restores the level once the call is over. To use this feature, you must have a cellular phone with a muting output that can be connected to the muting input wire (yellow/black lead) of this unit.

Hands Free Telephoning Function: By combining the optional Pioneer hands free system kit (CD-HF1) with this unit, you can talk on the phone while keeping your hands on the steering wheel. When a call is made or received, sound from the system is muted automatically and the voice of the person on the other end comes through the car speakers. The telephone output of the hands free system connects to the "TEL INPUT" on this unit, and the Mic output of the hands free system connects to the "MIC INPUT" on this unit. The "TEL INPUT" is a female threaded input and the "MIC INPUT" is a female mini-jack input. Note: The "MIC INPUT" cannot be used as an auxiliary input.

Warning Tone: If the detachable face is not removed within 5 seconds of turning the ignition off, a warning tone will sound. This feature can be turned On or Off.

Compatible with Optional TV Tuner: This head unit can control an optional Pioneer TV tuner (not supplied).
