Our take on the JVC KD-G110

by Tim Sprinkle
JVC

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.

Looking for a high-powered, affordable upgrade for your factory stereo? Check out the KD-G110 CD receiver from JVC. Not only will it fire up your tunes with 18 watts of RMS power per channel, it will do it with style that your existing system just can't match — all for less than $100!

You get hands-on audio control, thanks to the cEQ sound shaping tool. Its six preset tone curves allow for one-touch adjustments, while the 2-band equalizer lets you tweak the highs and lows. Connect an external amplifier or powered sub to the set of preamp outputs and go for some low-end reinforcement.

Radio fans will love the powerful HS-II AM/FM tuner. It can pull in far-off stations with ease, and deliver crisp, static-free reception for all of your local favorites. The KD-G110 also features a stylish, aluminum faceplate design that detaches for an extra measure of security.

Our Product Research Team

At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.

We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.

Features

Custom Equalizer (cEQ): In addition to manual bass and treble settings (-6dB to +6dB @ 100Hz and 10kHz), this unit also has six selectable preset tone control and loudness setting combinations. Each of the sound modes may be adjusted to your preference and stored in memory. The preset Custom Equalizer modes are:

  • Rock: Bass = +3, Treble = +1, Loudness = On
  • Classic: Bass = +1, Treble = -2, Loudness = Off
  • Pops: Bass = +4, Treble = +1, Loudness = Off
  • Hip Hop: Bass = +2, Treble = 0, Loudness = On
  • Jazz: Bass = +2, Treble = +3, Loudness = Off
  • User: Bass = 0, Treble = 0, Loudness = Off

Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-G110 with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low", the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high", and the volume control will range from 0 to 50.

Preferred Setting Mode: By activating the Preferred Setting Mode (PSM), you can set the clock, switch between US standard and European tuning spacing, and set the Amplifier Gain control (high/low).

Tuner: This model is equipped with JVC's proprietary HS-II tuner. You can set up to 18 FM and 6 AM stations as presets. Presets can be set manually, or automatically using Strong-station Sequential Memory (SSM). If an FM stereo broadcast is hard to receive, you can manually switch the tuner to "Mono" operation.

Direct Track Access: You can directly access CD tracks 1-12 by pressing the station preset buttons. If a preset button is pressed for less than 1 second, the track corresponding to the number on the preset button is selected (for tracks 1-6). When a preset button is pressed for more than 1 second, the track corresponding to the number above the preset button is accessed (for tracks 7-12).

Clock Display: While playing a CD, you can switch between the clock display and the CD elapsed time display (the track number always appears). While listening to the radio you can switch between the clock display and the station frequency display. When you press the Display button during power off, the unit will turn on, display the clock for 5 seconds, then shut off. This can be done with the ignition on or off.
