    Audio & Tuner Section

    CTA-2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the XDVD210 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 XDVD210 are as follows:

    • CTA-2006 Specs: 14 watts x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 watts total)

    2V/5Ch RCA Outputs: The XDVD210 features front, rear and mono-subwoofer 2-volt RCA outputs. The front and rear stereo RCA outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The mono-subwoofer RCA output is non-fading.

    EQ Presets: The XDVD210 is equipped with a built-in EQ. The integrated equalizer offers 5 preset sound modes (Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classic, or Off) suitable for the music genre of your choice. In Off mode, you can manually adjust the head unit's Bass & Treble from -7 to +7.

    Loudness: The Loudness feature compensates for deficiencies in the low and high sound ranges at low volume. This feature can be turned on or off.

    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 Dual XDVD210 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, & preset tuning.

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.

    AV Connectivity

    Dual AV Inputs: The Dual XDVD210 DVD receiver is fitted with two AV inputs. There is a front-panel 3.5mm AV input for connecting a temporary external portable audio/video player. 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.

    Dual Video Outputs: Two composite video RCA output jacks allow you to an add external monitors, such as rear headrest monitors or an overhead monitor (sold separately). The video outputs can display a DVD or AV input video signal when its selected as the receiver's main source, regardless if the vehicle's parking brake is engaged or not.

    Rear-View Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a Composite video RCA jack for connecting an optional back-up camera (sold separately). This RCA input enables you to connect a rear-view camera to display the area behind your vehicle. This increased visibility encourages and facilitates safer driving. When an optional rearview camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is displayed on the screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (orange wire of the harness must be connected to reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.1 seconds.

    Touchscreen & Remote Control

    6.2" LCD Touchscreen: The Dual XDVD210 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, hue, saturation, and sharpness level; as well as 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 along the left & right edges of the screen.

    IR Remote Control: The XDVD210 comes supplied with a 41-button IR remote control which provides wireless operation of the DVD receiver; including Bluetooth hands-free and audio streaming functions.
