About the Clarion DB165
Clarion built the DB165 CD player to be the perfect upgrade for your factory stereo, bringing high-powered sound and expandability to your mobile audio system.
The strong onboard amplifier powers your tunes, ensuring clear sound at all volume levels. The Z-Enhancer sound shaping feature offers three preset sound curves for easy, one-touch tone adjustments, while Clarion's Magna Bass EX helps boost the low frequencies for fuller, richer sound.
A set of preamp outputs makes it easy to integrate the DB165 into a larger sound system just connect your external amplifier or powered sub for extra bass reinforcement. And you won't have to worry about security when you detach the stereo's faceplate and take it with you.

Z-Enhancer: The Z-Enhancer function features three types of sound tone effects stored in memory. You may select Z-ENHANCER 1 (bass emphasized), Z-ENHANCER 2 (treble emphasized) or Z-ENHANCER 3 (bass and treble emphasized). When the Z-Enhancer feature is on, the bass and treble controls cannot be adjusted.
Magna Bass EX (Extend): The Magna Bass EX feature provides an extra boost of bass when activated. Unlike conventional loudness features which boost the low frequency range at around 100Hz, the Magna Bass EX boosts the low- and center-range frequencies of about 50Hz. By focusing on the lower frequencies, the added bass impact won't distort or muffle the high frequencies.
Bass/Treble: The bass control range is +/-14dB at 100Hz. The treble control range is +/-14dB at 10kHz.
Screen Saver: Thirty seconds after a button is pressed, the screen saver will activate, displaying a series of moving dashes. It can be deactivated at any time.
Top Function: The Top function resets the CD player to the first track of the disc.
Auto Reload: When a CD is ejected and left sticking out of the CD slot for 15 seconds, the unit automatically reloads the CD to protect if from damage.
Last Position Memory: If you turn off the unit while a disc is playing, it will resume playback at the stopping point when it is turned on again.
Instant Station Recall (ISR): You can store one radio station in Instant Station Recall (ISR) memory and recall it from any mode (except Power Off). Once the ISR station has been recalled, you cannot tune to another station without first disengaging the ISR function. You can, however, switch to another source.
