20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at
4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
- Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (or 50
watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
EEQ (Easy EQ): there are seven stored equalizer curves which you can
easily recall at any time. You can choose from - Powerful, Natural, Vocal, Super
Bass, Flat, Custom 1, or Custom 2.
8-Band Graphic EQ: The Custom 1 and Custom 2 EQ modes allow you to
manually adjust the level (+/- 12dB) of each band of the head unit's 8-band
graphic equalizer (40Hz, 80Hz, 200Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz, and10kHz).
Auto EQ (Optional): The auto-equalizer automatically measures
your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates an auto-equalizer
curve base on that information. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone
130CDMC20, sold separately) is required to use this function. The Pioneer CD-MC20
Auto-EQ microphone plugs into your compatible Pioneer A/V receiver's front-panel 3.5mm
input. The Auto-EQ microphone should be placed in the center of your vehicle's driver
seat headrest facing forward for EQ measurement.
Sonic Center Control: Sound that is suited for the listening
position can easily be created with this function. You can adjust sound more toward
the listening position left (7) to right (7).
Loudness: The Loudness function compensates for deficiencies in
the low- and high-frequency ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness to High,
Mid, Low, or Off.
Bass Boost: You can easily
boost the subwoofer bass level by using the Bass Boost function. The Bass Boost
feature allows you increase the subwoofer level from 0 to +6.
Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances
compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When the
Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency
response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the
Advanced Sound Retriever effect.
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.
Three 4-Volt Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer AVH-P3300BT is
equipped with three 4-Volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The front and
rear speakers are fading with high-pass crossover filters, while the subwoofer
output is non-fading with a low-pass crossover filter.
- Front and Rear Preamp Outputs: If you do not want low
frequency sounds to play from the front or rear speaker preamp outputs (or
speaker outputs), you can turn on the 12dB/octave High Pass Filter. The HPF
has a selectable cutoff frequency (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz). Only
frequencies higher than those in the selected range are output through the
- Subwoofer Output: The unit has a pair of dedicated
non-fading RCA subwoofer outputs with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment,
and output level. When the subwoofer output is turned on, you can select the

select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to
Speaker Output: You
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, or a 2-ohm subwoofer to one of the
rear speaker leads, without using an external
Telephone Mute/Attenuator: Sound from your system is muted or
attenuated automatically when a phone signal
is received when you have hardwired your mobile phone system to the mute wire
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.
RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio
broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to
compatible AM/FM stations.
BSM (Best Stations Memory): BSM
lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6
