Does it fit my car?

You'll enjoy the convenience of Bluetooth capability and wealth of playback options with Pioneer's FH-P8000BT CD receiver. And it fits perfectly in the double-size opening found in many dashboards.

This versatile receiver plays MP3, WMA, and AAC files on disc, controls a satellite radio tuner, and features a USB input, built-in iPod® controls, and a rear auxiliary input. When your iPod is connected to the USB input, the receiver bypasses your iPod's built-in digital-to-analog converter, using its high-quality DAC to deliver your music files with the highest fidelity possible. The Sound Retriever feature livens up flat-sounding music files by restoring information lost in compression, and you can use the 7-band equalizer to find the perfect tonal balance for your music. And you'll be able to make and receive calls through the stereo, without having to fumble around for your Bluetooth phone.

The receiver's clean design keeps operation refreshingly simple. The easy-to-use Rotary Commander interface locates your favorite songs or changes system settings with a touch of a button and a twist of the large control knob. System information, menus, and song titles show up bright and clear on the cool blue, 3-line LCD display. The 10-key wireless remote offers extensive fingertip control over your system while you drive, or you can add an optional adapter to control the receiver with your factory steering wheel controls.

Connect amplifiers and subwoofers to the three sets of high-voltage preamp outputs to build a high-powered car audio system. High-pass and low-pass filters let you adjust the range of frequencies you send to your speaker setup.

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 stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the receiver, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

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.

    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.

    Still bangin since '08.If you can find one new in box or just scratch and dent, disregard it's year model. It still competes with newer units.

    Pros: -3 preamps -BT compatible with Jelly Bean and iOS whatever -Loss of remote does not functionality of playing music

    Cons: -Loss of remote does interrupt functionality of making and receiving phone calls -Faceplate scratches easily so be careful

    Thanks to Crutchfield, installation went well. Worked first time. Looks really nice in the dash. Nice sound quality. Blue tooth links up immediately. We have an LG cell phone and had trouble pairing the phone. Crutchfield walked us through it. Works great. Rear usb allowed us to put our ipod in the glove box and eliminate the front wire. Much cleaner look

    Pros: Blue tooth; rear usb

    Cons: Owner's manual can get confusing.

    Just a bit of warning about this unit. Since apple updated its iphone OS it will initially connect its audio bluetooth and play all the music you want. However, after that it will no longer play any audio, but it will let you use the telephone option with no problem. So it pairs with the phone, but loses its audio function. The way around this is to select the nokia connection then on the phone while its trying to connect select the radio's name option under the bluetooth. Seems like you have to do this every time..bummer.

    Pros: Nice options for the money

    Cons: Won't connect to iphone correctly after initial connection

    Fantastic, great value for money

    Great head unit. All the features you could need, and at a great price. The bluetooth is crisp and clear, sound quality is awesome. The only issues are that its control scheme, while intuitive for the most part, isn't 100% easy to use. Although the remote does make it easier, with shortcut buttons for audio/eq/function adjustments. The other thing is it took me having to use google to finally figure out how to adjust the clock - as the manual comes in a CD form, and my laptop doesn't have a CD drive...

    Overall its a great produce, and once you get past the mildly confusing initial setting adjustments its simple to operate.

    Pros: Looks great - flush and stock feel. All inputs in rear to avoid messy clutter coming from dash. Clear Bluetooth sound. Great audio sound.

    Cons: Initial setting adjustments can be a bit cumbersome. Installation takes a little longer than anticipated.
