And, if you're one of those people who is always squinting at the display, the black text on a white background is really easy to read.

Plug in your iPhone®

The handy front-panel USB input is perfect for plugging in thumb drives loaded with MP3 and WMA music files, and it also supports your iPhone or iPod®. Plug in and you'll have easy access to your favorite playlists, artists, podcasts, and more. And if you're not an Apple user, the two auxiliary inputs — minijack on the front and RCAs on the rear — will handle the audio output from other phones or music players. You can play your favorite CDs, or home-burned discs loaded with MP3 or WMA files.

Enjoy the extras

The face of the XDMA450 detaches for security, and Dual includes a remote control for your convenience. This receiver's built-in amp delivers plenty of juice so you'll notice a big jump in sound if you're replacing your factory radio. Seven preset EQ curves make it easy to adjust the sound, while front and rear preamp outputs lets you hook up an amp or powered sub.

    There are minor design annoyances, but it is cheap and it works 100% reliably. Great budget option for retrofitting AUX/USB in an older car.

    Nice radio and a lot of great features. I've had this for about a week now and everything is working great. It also looks fine in my classic Saab 900 turbo. The sound is great coming through my clarion speakers. Very easy to install and excellent help from the technician,Cosmo, on a couple questions I had before I bought the radio. Cosmo also turned me on the plastic posi-connectors which made the wire connections a breeze. A very positive and great experience from buying to installing.

    Pros: easy install, looks great, easy to work features,bonus=it comes with remote.

    Stay away from Dual products. Cheaply made product. Faceplate must have gotten too hot and won't stay hooked up. I don't see the point in removable faceplates, I never removed it since install. Save your money and buy a higher quality product

    Radio works great, instillation is fairly easy, as easy as it can get with replacing a radio I guess, this was my first time replacing my radio and me and the husband got it done in one night.

    Over all this radio cannot save the setting of the "EQ, AUX FRONT & REAR " you need to reset every time you start the car , chg the station & plug in USB I wasn't planning to provide any star for this. 1 star is for it allows you to program the station.

    Crutchfield customer from Albuquerque, NM on 1/30/2019

    1992 Geo Metro

    Verified customer (What's this?)
    Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

    Had it for several weeks. Pretty good sound quality. Nice features. Shipped super fast and the installation kit was PERFECT. There is some distortion at higher volume levels. It seems really well made and just feels well built. It is also very visually appealing. Most of the buttons are quite small but have a quality feel to them - they feel tight and positive and not loose or cheap.

    Pros: really, really great price for what you get! great features!! reads and plays files from a USB drive like a champ!! It is a very cool looking unit and just adds some class to the dash. And, it seems to be very well made.

    Cons: The display is very, very bright. It is way too bright at night even at the medium setting. Fortunately it is adjustable with 3 settings and I'm happy with it at the lowest. The preset buttons and forward / back buttons are pretty darn small and hard to hit while driving without looking down - but that's a not a big issue after time. There is a pretty considerable amount of distortion at the highest volume levels.

    Dual Auxiliary Inputs: The XDMA450 features dual auxiliary inputs. There is a front-panel 3.5mm auxiliary input for connecting a temporary external portable audio device, such as a portable MP3 player. There is also a rear-panel stereo RCA auxiliary input for connecting a permanent external audio device.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual XDMA450 is equipped with a MOSFET amplifier. Compared to conventional power supplies, the MOSFET amplification circuit is smaller and more efficient, and it delivers increased power with less distortion and absolutely zero on/off switching noise. More power means louder and cleaner music at higher volumes because you're not pushing the limits of the amplification circuit. The power output specs for the XDMA450 are as follows -

    • CTA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)

    Note: The power specifications for the XDMA450 are compliant with the CTA2006 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.

    2V/4Ch Preamp Outputs: The Dual XDMA450 is equipped with two pair of 2-Volt preamp outputs (Front, R/Sub). The R/Sub preamp output can be switched between a rear-channel full-range output or a non-fading subwoofer preamp output. When the subwoofer preamp output is activated, you can adjust the output level (0-12) of the sub preamp output. There is no built-in low pass crossover for the R/Sub preamp output.

    Equalizer: The Dual CD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Rock, or User) to customize your music listening. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the receiver's Bass & Treble. EQ settings are stored for each source. 

    Loudness: The Loudness feature increases the bass and treble frequencies at lower volume levels.

    Source & Program Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (Tuner, CD, Aux, USB, iPod). You can set the source volume level (+/-6dB) for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source. You can also set the XDMA450 to power-on to the same volume level (1-46) every time.

    Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every button press will output a beep tone.

    AM/FM Tuner: The Dual XDMA450 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, and preset tuning. You can store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets (manually or automatically). The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals. You can even switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Face-Plate: The head unit's face-plate is detachable to deter theft. An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit. Included face-fixing screws prevent the unit's face-plate from detaching.

    Text Scroll: You can change the scrolling style used for displayed information on the LCD screen. Choose from Off (no scrolling), Once (scrolls once), 15 Secs (scrolls once per 15 seconds), and On (constantly scrolls).

    12/24 Hour Clock: The unit's built-in clock can be set to 12-hour or 24-hour mode.

    Demo Mode: You can enable or disable the  units demonstration mode.

    Wireless Remote Control: The XDMA450 comes supplied with an 18-button IR wireless remote control which provides complete control of the Dual CD Receiver.

    Optional Steering Wheel Control Adapter: The unit features a SWC (steering wheel control) input which lets you keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional steering wheel control adapter from PAC or Metra (sold separately - see Accessories tab).
