Wireless convenience using Bluetooth®

This Axxera lets your stream music from any Bluetooth-equipped device that's paired to the receiver, including music stored on the phone and from Internet radio stations like Pandora® and Spotify®. Hands-free calling cuts down on distractions — a big plus for safety. Axxera also built in a sensitive Bluetooth microphone into the receiver's faceplate for a simpler installation.

More media options

When it's time to enjoy your own music, you can slide in just about any disc, even a recordable CD or DVD loaded with MP3 files. The USB port, SD card slot, and auxiliary input offer other options for checking out all your media. The 6.2" screen works as a great display for system and song info, and you can also view movies and video on it when your car is parked. If you want to share the fun, you can install a rear video screen and play movies on the go to keep your backseat crew happy. They can even control DVD playback using the included wireless remote control.

Enhancing your music

The AV6117B includes a 6-band equalizer with seven EQ presets for refining your sound. If you want some added impact to your tunes, a full set of high-voltage preamp outputs makes it easier to connect amplifiers for your speakers and a subwoofer.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.2" LCD Touchscreen: The Axxera AV6117B features a 6.2" LCD touchscreen monitor (800x480) with LED backlighting. This unit's touchscreen controls with interactive video graphics make menu navigation simple and intuitive. You can adjust the screen's brightness, contrast, saturation, and tint. You can also select from three different wallpapers/backgrounds.

    Note: For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the pink wire of the included harness must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged.

    Hard-Key Controls: In addition to the 6.2" LCD touchscreen, the unit also has push-button controls and a 3-way rotary dial on the front-panel along the left edge of the screen.

    Variable Color Illumination: Offering over 16 million color combinations, the head unit's RGB feature allows you to customize the color illumination for the receiver's hard-key buttons and on-screen icons. Now you'll be able to match the receiver's illumination to your vehicle's interior lighting, or create a color that fits your mood.

    IR Remote: The Axxera AV6117B comes supplied with a 41-button IR remote control which provides wireless operation of the Axxera DVD receiver.

    Built-in SWC: This receiver offers built-in steering wheel remote compatibility with select non-CAN Bus vehicles. We don't recommend using this receiver's built-in steering wheel interface, because results have been inconsistent and we cannot confirm this radio's compatibility with your vehicle.
    Note: This unit only works with analog steering wheel controls; it does not support any data-bus systems. This unit is not compatible with external steering wheel control interfaces.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    CTA-2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the AV6117B are compliant with the CTA-2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Technology Association (CTA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers. The power output specs for the AV6117B are as follows:

    • CTA-2006 Specs: 16 watts x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 watts total)

    4V/6Ch RCA Outputs: The AV6117B features front, rear and subwoofer 4-volt RCA outputs. The front and rear speaker RCA outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer RCA output is non-fading. You can also adjust the unit's subwoofer output level independently from the main volume level.

    EQ: The AV6117B is equipped with a built-in EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Flat, or User) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 6-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Q-Factor, & Level).

    Key Beep: The in-dash head unit provides an audible beep to confirm button operation (this can be turned On or Off).

    AM/FM Tuner: The Axxera AV6117B features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, & preset tuning. The built-in AM/FM tuner allows you to store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets. You can tune your presets manually or have the head unit do it automatically. The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals. You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.

There is also a rear-panel AV auxiliary input which consists of a composite video jack and stereo RCA jacks. The AV aux input can be used for connection of a permanent external audio/video source, such as a Blu-ray player or TV tuner.

    Video Out: A single RCA composite video-output jack allows you to an add external monitor such as rear headrest monitor (sold separately). The video output will display whatever image is being being displayed on the head unit's touchscreen monitor. This includes the warning "Video Is Disabled For Your Safety" when trying to watch video from a DVD, USB device, micorSD card, or AV inputs without the vehicle's parking brake engaged. You will need to engage the vehicle's parking brake to see video from these sources through the head unit's video output.

Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.85 seconds.

    Is the screen be affected by winter temperatures?
    [ Thomas  Dec 07, 2017 ]
    2 answers
    A
    In our area, we typically do not see extreme lows. So far, I have not encountered any issues down through freezing outside temps. The dash interior heats up pretty quick and the screen does not seem to have but a very minor delay during that warm up period, until the heat kicks in. It is so insignificant that I don't really even think much about it to be honest.

    The unit has 2 additional RCA type inputs to it that I didn't use. If your camera has this capability your good, if not, No it will not work. Haven't seen anything that looks like it would pickup up a low output signal from a camera and display it on the screen!

    With an aux splitter you can no problem. But the video output is there with the right wires u can hook up as many TVs as u would like.
    [ Dave  Apr 10, 2017 ]
    A
    There are ports on the back to add screens and a backup camera... I did not use these at the time of install however the option was there. As for extra headphones, perhaps using the jack port on the screens. Sorry, I can't give you a better answer.
    [ Francis  Apr 06, 2017 ]
    A
    Yes, you can use an RCA splitter from the single one on the back of the unit to send the signal out to two different LCD units. You can also do the same by using a 3.5mm jack audio splitter for the separate headphones. If you want to get creative, you could run an audio cable out from the unit into a Bluetooth adapter, making the audio wireless and available to pick up from Bluetooth headphones etc. Just got to make sure they pair properly (check manufacturer frequency comparisons). Hope this helps
