Our take on the Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD

by Ken Nail
Pioneer

DVD receivers: They're not just for movies

DVD receivers add a new level of entertainment to your vehicle. You can watch a movie on the screen when you're parked on a Saturday night, or play a DVD through your rear seat video setup on the road. Touchscreen receivers allow you to breeze through menus with the tip of your finger. Most DVD receivers feature a USB input for audio from your iPod, and the ability to add an adapter that allows video to display on the screen. Some receivers even offer connections for a center speaker and a subwoofer, so you can build a full-fledged theater in your car, just like at home.

Step up to multimedia in your car

You don't need to play movies in your car to enjoy having a DVD receiver in your dash (though it IS a pretty cool feature). Pioneer's DVD receivers set the bar for multi-faceted functionality, and the AVH-X1500DVD leads off their feature-rich lineup. This versatile receiver sports a 6.1" screen with intuitive touchscreen controls that allow you to make changes by tapping, swiping, or dragging your finger, along with user-friendly menus that you can customize to your liking.
Thanks to WVGA technology, Pioneer's DVD receivers boast twice the resolution of most multimedia receivers, meaning you'll have a clearer, sharper picture when you're watching videos or taking charge from the touchscreen. And you'll also find plenty of ways to play back your music, compatibility with many popular mobile apps, and a display that'll knock your socks off.

Advanced App Mode

Pioneer integrates smartphones into your driving experience with Advanced App Mode, which allows you to launch and control compatible iPhone apps from the face of your receiver, putting a variety of music, navigation, and social media apps at your command. You'll appreciate the safety and convenience when you're behind the wheel of your car, and more and more compatible apps are coming your way  — you'll need Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable and you can see the latest compatible apps here.

Video playback and a rocking-cool touchscreen display

The 6.1" LCD screen on this Pioneer plays DVDs in bright, clear detail when you're parked. You can also send a movie from the receiver to a rear-seat screen — your passengers will thank you during those long trips. And with Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable, you'll be able to view video content from your iPod® or IPhone® too (video playback requires CD-IV202AV cable kit and other adapters with iPhone 5). And of course you can plug in a rear-view camera to play it safe in crowded parking lots.
You'll also find some cool touchscreen features — Pioneer's Touch Slide technology gives you real fingertip control over many functions. Want a new EQ curve? Just draw it on the screen with your finger and you've got it. And you can browse video files through thumbnail images — just touch them to check out a sneak preview.

MIXTRAX will liven up your time on the road. This feature creates a DJ-like experience with content from your iPod, iPhone, or Android™, with special effects between songs and variable-color lighting that pulses with the beat of your music. You can even tailor the receiver's appearance to your taste by choosing from five display colors and 112 key panel illumination options.

Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD

Touchscreen controls make it easy to select sources.

Media at your command

You can play just about anything on this Pioneer, including your CDs, discs full of MP3 or WMA music, or USB storage devices loaded with files. When you connect your iPod to the USB input, you'll be able to use the receiver's controls to access your playlists. Handy tools like Alphabet Search and Link Search to make it easier to find the song you want fast.

You can also play music files from many Android™ phones when your Android is plugged into the rear USB port — see the "Details" tab for more info on device compatibility. If you're a fan of streaming Internet radio, connect your iPhone to the receiver with Pioneer's CD-IU201S cable and take charge of your Pandora® account from the touchscreen, complete with thumbs-up and thumbs-down controls.

Great sound matters

The receiver's powerful built-in amplifier delivers the goods, with crisp sound at all volume settings, while the 8-band equalizer offers plenty of ways to tweak the output. Three pairs of preamp outputs make it easier to connect external amps, and this receiver offers an auto-equalization feature to tune your system (microphone required).

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Pioneer stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Pioneer, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls.

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.

    Touchscreen Display

    6.1" TFT LCD Touchscreen Color Display: The AVH-X1500DVD features a 6.1" TFT Active Matrix, 16:9 widescreen touchscreen display. The resolution of the display is 800 x 480 (RGB), for a total of 1,152,000 pixels. The touchscreen display allows you to control this unit and a connected component such as an iPod/iPhone, or USB mass storage class device. Menus appear on screen for making function choices, audio adjustments, and setting up the system. The unit has a front-loading disc-slot to make loading your disc easier, because there is no panel to slide or fold-down. The fixed touchscreen display is not removable.

    Multilingual Display: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD offers English, Chinese, French, Portuguese, and Spanish text.

    Video Adjustments: You can store numerous video settings for each source and the optional rear view camera; including brightness (adjusts the black intensity), contrast (adjusts contrast), color (adjusts color saturation), hue (adjusts the tone of color), and temperature (adjust the color temperature).

    Widescreen Modes: You can choose from the following widescreen modes when playing back video:

    • Full: A 4:3 picture is enlarged in the horizontal direction only, enabling you to enjoy a 4:3 picture without any omissions.
    • Zoom: A 4:3 picture is enlarged in the same proportion both vertically and horizontally; ideal for a 16:9 screen.
    • Normal: A 4:3 picture is displayed as it is.

The color of the button illumination can be set to red, amber, green, blue, white, or scan (constantly cycling through the color spectrum). You can also create a custom color to match your vehicle's interior lighting (112 colors to choose from).

    Dimmer: To prevent the display from being too bright at night, the display is automatically dimmed when the car's headlights are turned on. The automatic dimmer function only works when the orange/white illumination wire in the wiring harness is connected to the vehicle's headlight circuit.

    Parking Brake Interlock: This unit has a parking brake interlock system that prohibits viewing of video programming and operating certain controls when the vehicle is in motion. In order to watch video on the in-dash monitor, the vehicle must be parked with the parking brake engaged.

Viewing of front seat video source while driving is strictly prohibited", if you try to watch a video when your vehicle is in motion.

    2-DIN Chassis: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as "Double -DIN"), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets.

    AM/FM + Pandora Internet Radio

    Supertuner IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID AM/FM tuner 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.

    MIXTRAX: Drawing from Pioneer's rich DJ heritage and passion for music, MIXTRAX delivers a unique DJ infused listening experience to listeners in the car. MIXTRAX is an innovative Pioneer technology that creates a non-stop mix of your music library complete with a range of DJ-inspired effects. MIXTRAX takes your typical music listening experience and creates a non-stop mix of your music with 9 random DJ effects and transitions, by removing the breaks and pauses normally introduced between tracks and replacing them with various beats. MIXTRAX is compatible with USB-connected iPhone, iPod, USB MSC device, and select Android devices. There is also a Short Playback option which limits the amount of time each track plays; select from 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, or 3 minutes.

    Note: The MIXTRAX function does not work in App mode or with the Pandora App for iPod/iPhone/iPad.

    Parental Lock: This unit features an 8-level Parental Lock system protected by a user-selected 4-digit password to prevent certain DVD's from being played back on the AVH-X1500DVD.

    Off Insert/Eject: A disc can be inserted or ejected with the power off. When a disc is inserted with the power off, the unit will automatically power up and begin playback. When you eject a disc, the unit will automatically power off (unless you switch sources before ejecting the disc).

    Installation Angle: Optimum disc playback performance is obtained when the unit is installed at an angle of less than 30-degrees.

    Audio Section

    24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback from DVDs, CDs, and flash media, the Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD is equipped with a 24-bit/96kHz digital-to-analog converter.

    MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak) MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, 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 preamp outputs.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the AVH-X1500DVD are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 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) w/ 8-Band Graphic 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. 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 rear-panel AUX 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 (12dB).

    Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When the Advanced Sound 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.

    Source 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.

    2V/6CH Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD features three pair of 2.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The unit's front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer preamp output is non-fading.

    Crossovers: The AVH-X1500DVD employs high pass and low pass crossovers to tailor the head unit to your connected speakers.

    • HPF: The head unit's 12dB/octave high pass filter only allows frequencies higher than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) to your front and rear speakers through the unit's speaker-level or line-level outputs.
    • LPF: The subwoofer preamp output features an18dB/octave low pass filter so only frequencies lower than those in the selected range (50, 63, 80, 100, 125Hz) are output to your connected subwoofer.

    Subwoofer Controls: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD lets you adjust the subwoofer preamp output's phase (normal/reverse) and volume (+6 to -24).

    Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Speaker Output: The rear speaker outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.

    AV Connections

    Dual AV Inputs: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD has dual AV inputs to connect two external audio/video sources. The head unit has a rear-panel 3.5mm minijack AV input for connecting a portable audio/video device. There is also a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA AV input for connecting a video component such as a mobile TV tuner or game console. The rear-panel 3.5mm minijack input also serves as the A/V input for your USB-connected iPod/iPhone (using the proprietary Pioneer cable).

    Video Output: The AVH-X1500DVD features a rear-panel composite video output that allows you to connect an external display to the unit. You can play back the same video source which is being played on the head unit. You can select the unit to output a 16:9, Letter-Box or Pan-Scan aspect ratio to match your external display's screen size.

    Rear View Camera: The AVH-X1500DVD is equipped with a composite video Rear View Camera input. The unit features a function that automatically switches to the rear camera image (Rear View Camera input jack) when an optional rear camera (130NDBC5, sold separately) is installed. When the transmission is in reverse, the screen automatically switches to the rear view camera (the violet/white wire in the AVH-X1500DVD's harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.9 seconds. Pioneer recommends using a camera with a mirror image (reversed) output. Audio from your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.

    Navigation Ready: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD allows you to connect the Pioneer AVIC-U250 add-on navigation unit (130AVIC250, sold separately) through its RGB Input. This versatile hideaway unit allows you to switch to navigation mode with the touch of a button. Get to your destination by inputting an address or search through the POI library while enjoying whatever source is currently playing.

    Note: If you are already using the head unit's RGB input to access AppRadio Mode from your iPhone, then you cannot connect this add-on navigation module (or vise-versa).

    Remote Control

    Wireless Remote Control: The Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD includes an IR remote control (CXE5116) for wireless operation of the multimedia head unit and your connected devices.

    Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    Love the player. Great with pandora. A little difficult to get DvD to bypass the stupid parking brake saftey switch. But all in all a very good payer with great EQ adjustments and sub output. Dont like the fact that the usb input comes out the back so you have to run a cable behind the dash instead of being able to just plug in the front. I have this and the jenson flip out dvd in my wifes car. the screen quality and resolution is awesome with this player 100% better quality than the Jenson.
    Pros:
    great picture, wide range of eq control,great sound
    Cons:
    usb port in the back(this is just a personal thing),hard to bypass brake switch

    Pioneer AVH

    Written By Sarge, Maryland on Friday, May 23, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    its not a bad item for the money. the install was pretty straight forward. I've been using the Pioneer brand for over 14 years and still lasts the test of time. Still disappointed that this unit will not work with a Android Fone. ive tried everything that I can think of and as much research as I could as well.. If your looking to use the Bluetooth function or a Android, move onto another system. other than that good sound and functionality for the money.
    Pros:
    the sound quality is great and ease of installation. pretty much straight and to the point. added a Sub to this and was easy install. System configuration not too complicated.
    Cons:
    no Bluetooth... ONLY for IPHONES, not android ( unless you have an old Android that wasn't updated from Jellybean)

    This is a great radio, sound is good, looks is good. It is easy to learn to use. Will work with Android using the Aux. cable coming from the back and running into glove box, and plug into the headphone jack. Installed in a 2010 Dodge 1500 with a little trimming of the dash.

    Best bang for your buck!

    Written By Zee, Lakewood, CA on Thursday, May 15, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    This was my very first time dipping my feet into the world of car audio modding. I have a 2010 Honda Fit and the head unit on it was itching to be replaced(non navi). As a full-time student on a budget, I needed something that was affordable yet suitable enough to keep while adding on to(sub/amp/speakers). Saw great reviews and ratings and I loved the way it looked compared to others in its price range so I decided to get one in my hands. Crutchfield is amazing with sending everything you need for the installation. I was a little iffy doing wiring because it was only my second time doing wiring but everything worked the first time! Installation was a breeze with everything that Crutchfield provided. As for the sound quality, it's a world of a difference compared to stock, with the 8-band EQ and all the other features available in this inexpensive little unit. Only reason why I have 4 stars on build quality is because I'm so accustomed to my iPhones touchscreen that I felt the Pioneer could have been better but it's still great nevertheless! It's the only thing I could have any negative thoughts about but I can't complain with what I paid for! This head unit is definitely worth a try. :)
    Pros:
    Easy to install, jam-packed with great features, works great with iPhone 5S

    Double Din Upgrade

    Written By Bob, Triad, NC on Monday, April 28, 2014
    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
     
    I had a double din factory stereo that had very few options. This Pioneer was a nice upgrade over that. The iPod / iPhone integration, DVD player, rear camera and pre outs give me a lot of options to work with. I am no audiophile, but am pleased with the product based on the price-point. If you were looking for a nice upgrade from your plain factory stereo this is a nice upgrade. Spend some time in the driveway figuring out what does what related to iPod integration, because it does take a little time to work out the nuances to operation.
    Pros:
    Price. Solid construction. Features available for the price-point. Display, background and theme color changes to match stock interior colors.
    Cons:
    None really.for the price you really can't be that picky, and if you are then go spend $500 on something else.

    This stereo is super nice for the price! Touch screen is fun, the sound quality is better than my stock stereo and I like the tons of upgrade hookups in the back. Wiring was fairly simple. Plays my Flash drives and phone. Only thing missing is bluetooth tech which can be added on later.
    Pros:
    Great upgrade from 2006 stock cd player. Plays DVDs and Pandora. DJ Mixtrax feature is fun. Changing color buttons rocks, menu functionality is great!
    Cons:
    No blue tooth. Had to buy a usb-1/4" adapter for flash drive and phone integration for $60. I know how to wire but if you don't then expect to get a pro to install for you. The universal parts they give you to install are kind of a pain with tabs you have to cut off with cutters

    Recently purchased and installed the Pioneer AVH-X1500DVD and I love it! It makes the interior of my '08 Ford Edge look so much better, less plain and boring. It's very user friendly, I didn't have to read any of the owners manual to learn how to work it, it's very straight forward and simple.
    Pros:
    Ease of use, great sound quality over factory head unit and it has style.
    Cons:
    Haven't found any yet...

    5 star choice

    Awesome buy, being my first screen reciever. Many color options on the display, you can alter it on a color scale, which allows any color you could imagine honestly. Sound quality was day and night different after the install. (I drive a 2000 Toyota 4runner) I find myself using the remote it comes with because its easier than hitting the voulme button on the actual product. Heck, for the price, its a steal. Looks great, sounds great, what more do you want? Only thing I will say I dont care for; is the fact that you must have the vehicles parking brake applied for the AUX option to work correctly, Im not sure why honestly, and I hate seeing the warning that stays on the screen so I normally just turn the display off. My buddy saw mine, and installed one in his Toyota Supra also.
    Pros:
    Upgrades the look of your interior. Sounds amazing. Plenty of options.
    Cons:
    Must be in park for the DVD to play or the AUX to show cover art.

    Pretty good unit for the price. Very easy to use. Sound quality has improved drastically over my stock headunit. Still have stock speakers.
    Pros:
    Sound quality, ease of use, looks
    Cons:
    Speed of unit- sometimes takes a second to load from changing song from spotify on my iphone. Other con would be that you need an extra $40 cord to have full access of all the available apps on the device and your phone.
