Clarion's ProAudio DXZ445 CD receiver has a 2-year warranty to guarantee its performance and reliability. Enjoy listening to the radio? The Magi-Tune+ tuner provides excellent AM/FM reception, pulling in weak stations with ease.

Adjust the overall tone of your music with Z-Enhancer+. It has three preset sound adjustments ("B-Boost," "Impact," and "Excite"), plus a fourth user-definable preset and a 2-band parametric EQ, so you can create your own custom tone curve. Combined with the powerhouse of a built-in amplifier (17 watts RMS/52 peak x 4 channels), it'll make your tunes sound great!

Two sets of preamp outputs let you add an external amplifier to your speakers. A low-pass crossover helps you select the cutoff frequency when you have amplified subwoofers connected.

With the ability to add other Clarion components, you get room to grow a serious mobile audio/video system. Options include a CD or DVD changer, TV tuner, or SIRIUS satellite radio tuner. Just in case that doesn't cover all of your needs, there's also an auxiliary input.

Features

Adjustable Contrast: You can adjust the display contrast to match the angle of installation of the unit. The contrast setting can be adjusted from 1 to 8.

Screen Saver Display: You can choose On, Off, or Message. In Message mode, the unit displays a 30-character message that you can edit. The default message reads "Welcome to Clarion".

SIRIUS Satellite Radio Controls: This unit can control the optional Clarion SIRIUS Satellite tuner (sold separately). The optional tuner, along with an antenna and subscription, will allow you to receive SIRIUS Satellite Radio.

Clarion CeNET TV Tuner Control: This unit is capable of controlling Clarion's CeNET TV tuner.

Clarion CeNET DVD Deck Control: This unit is compatible with Clarion's CeNET DVD deck.

Z-Enhancer Plus: The Z-Enhancer function features four types of sound tone effects stored in memory. You may select "Bass Boost" (bass emphasized), "Impact" (bass and treble emphasized), "Excite" (bass and treble emphasized, mids de-emphasized), or "Custom" (allows you to fully adjust bass and treble). When "Bass Boost" is selected, you can adjust the bass setting from -3dB to +3dB in 1dB increments. When "Impact" or "Excite" is selected, you can adjust the bass and treble settings from -3dB to +3dB in 1dB increments. When "Custom" is selected, you can independently adjust the gain, frequency and Q factor for the bass. For the treble, you can adjust the gain and frequency.

Magna Bass EX: The Magna Bass EX feature provides an extra boost of bass when activated. The effect of the Magna Bass EX varies with the volume level.

Magi-Tune+ FM Tuner: This receiver is equipped with Clarion's proprietary Magi-Tune+ FM Tuner, which improves sensitivity and selectivity for excellent FM stereo reproduction.

Instant Station Recall (ISR): This feature gives you one touch recall of a single favorite radio station (this is in addition to the 18 FM and 6 AM presets).

CD/CD Changer/Tuner/TV Titling: Titles, up to 8 characters long, can be stored and recalled from memory for individual CDs, discs in a changer magazine, radio stations, and TV stations. 50 titles may be entered for the CD mode, 20 may be entered for TV tuner mode, and 30 may be entered for radio mode. In CD changer mode, you may enter 100 CD titles when using the DCZ625, 100 CD titles when using the CDC655Tz, or 50 titles when using the CDC1255z changer.

Top Play Button: Pressing the "Top" button while a CD is playing will start the disc playing from track 1 again.

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. This feature works with 5" (12cm) CDs, but it will not work with 3" (8cm) CDs.

Rear/Subwoofer Preamp Outputs: The rear preamp outputs can be set for full-range or subwoofer output. In subwoofer output mode, the preamp outputs have a selectable low-pass crossover that can be set to 50Hz, 80Hz, or 120Hz. You can adjust the subwoofer volume from -6 to +6 using the front panel subwoofer volume control.

Auxiliary Input: Stereo RCA preamp inputs are hardwired to the back of the unit on a 3" lead, allowing you to connect a portable audio source. Just connect your portable cassette, MD or MP3 player to this unit, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system. The Aux input sensitivity is adjustable and can be set to High, Mid, or Low.

Dimmer Feature: This unit is equipped with a wire that Clarion calls an illumination lead, however, it acts as a dimmer lead. When the illumination wire of this unit receives power and the dimmer feature has been turned on, the display will dim to a preset level.

Note: When the power and constant wires are connected and the illumination wire is supplied with voltage (when you turn your lights on), the button illumination remains on even if the unit is turned off.

Changer Controls

CeNET Control: This unit is equipped with a CeNET control connector and can control up to a total of two CeNET changers (CD and/or MD). Two changer control requires a Y-adapter (sold separately).

CD Title Memory: When used with a compatible CD changer, this feature allows you to assign names to discs in the changer. Each name can be up to 8 characters in length. The number of names you can store depends on the CD changer that is connected to the head unit. 

Note

Warranty Note: For 2004 ProAudio models, Clarion has extended the 2-year warranty to all Crutchfield customers, even if the unit is not installed by an authorized Clarion dealer.
