Our Product Research Team
At Crutchfield, you'll get detailed, accurate information that's hard to find elsewhere.
That's because we have our own in-house Product Research team — they open the box,
verify contents, check the owner's manual, and record dimensions, features and specs.
We stay on top of new products and technologies to help people make informed choices.
has "SUPER BASS", "POWERFUL", "NATURAL", "VOCAL", "CUSTOM", and "FLAT" preset EQ
curves. The "CUSTOM" curve is one that you create and store in memory.
Parametric Equalizer: This unit includes a
3-band parametric EQ with Selectable Q Factor. You may select a low (40, 80, 100
or 160Hz), mid (200, 500, 1k or 2kHz) and high frequency (3k, 8k, 10k or 12kHz)
to boost or cut within a range of -6 dB to +6 dB. The Q factor (slope of the
boost or cut) may be selected from one of the following four options: 2N
(narrow), 1N, 1W and 2W (wide). Selecting a narrow (steep) Q factor results in
frequencies around the center frequency to be affected less by the boost or cut
than they are with a wide Q factor. This feature is useful for taming frequency
response problems caused by the dimensions, materials and speaker locations of a
(Front Image Enhancer): This feature
enhances the front image by cutting mid- and high-range frequencies to the rear
speakers, limiting their output to low-range frequencies. You may select a
cutoff frequency of 100, 160 or 250Hz.
Loudness Settings: Loudness
compensates for deficiencies in the low and high frequencies at low volumes. You
can select from three loudness contours:
- Low: +3.5 dB boost at 100
Hz and a +3 dB boost at 10 kHz
- Mid: +10 dB boost at 100
Hz and a +6.5 dB boost at 10 kHz
- High: +11 dB boost at 100
Hz and a +11 dB boost at 10 kHz
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.
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.
BSM (Best Stations Memory): BSM
lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6
of the currently tuned band.
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.
When the Clock Display has been turned on, pressing and
holding the source button turns off audio output, but the clock display and
face/button illumination remain on. When the Clock Display has not been turned
on, pressing and holding the source button turns the unit off completely.
This unit's illumination and clock are "keyed" only when
the Clock Display has been turned on.
