About the JVC KD-X370BTS

So many music options

I stream music from Spotify® on my iPhone every day, but my back-up music source is a flash drive packed with old songs. JVC's KD-X370BTS digital media receiver is the ideal 2" tall solution for a driver like me. Built-in Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, a front USB port, and an aux input make playing music from your phone quick and satisfying. And if streaming isn't your thing, you can add a SiriusXM® satellite radio tuner (sold separately) for easy entertainment. And the receiver's high-contrast LCD display fares well, even in bright sunlight.

So many music options

Built-in Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling, a front USB port, and an aux input make playing music from your phone quick and satisfying. And if streaming isn't your thing, you can add a SiriusXM® satellite radio tuner (sold separately) for easy entertainment. And the receiver's high-contrast LCD display fares well, even in bright sunlight.

Phone-pairing for two drivers

No matter what kind of phone you're using, Bluetooth pairing is automatic every time you hop in the car. You can also pair two phones at once — if you share a vehicle, getting connected is less of a hassle than adjusting the rear-view or getting the driver seat the way you like it. And when it comes to streaming audio, JVC's Streaming DJ feature lets you pair five phones so everybody can chime in with their favorite song on the road.

Use Android™ or Apple®

JVC makes streaming straightforward by letting you control Pandora® and Spotify® right from the stereo. And JVC's remote control app lets you use your compatible Android or iPhone touchscreen to control the action on your receiver using finger swipes and gestures.

With a wired connection, you'll be able to take advantage of the USB port's powerful 1.5-amp charging capability.

Plus, satellite radio compatibility

Pile on the entertainment by adding a SiriusXM® tuner (sold separately) to your KD-X370BTS and start enjoying the wide variety of music, sports, news, and more. The best part is you can drive coast to coast without losing your favorite channels.

Cool colors

JVC provides some super tools to match your new receiver to your interior lighting. And with 2-zone variable color illumination, you'll get to dial in your look with two different colors on your JVC face. You can even sync the lights to match your music.

Top-notch audio tools

The KD-X370BTS plays MP3, WMA, AAC, WAV, and even FLAC files, and you can make the most of them with a wide array of sound-shaping tools, including time alignment to focus the sound at your seat, Sound Lift to raise your music from depths of your doors, and a 13-band graphic equalizer. Plus, JVC's proprietary K2 sound enhancement technology brings out the best in each song.

Always room to expand

JVC prepares you for sonic improvement by arming the KD-X370BTS with three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs. When you're ready, you'll be able to easily add amps and a sub to your system.

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.

iPod/smartphone note: If you're going to use your iPod or smartphone with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for compatibility information.

    Amazon Alexa Compatible: The JVC KD-X370BTS features built-in Alexa with voice control. Alexa is a cloud-based voice control digital assistant developed by Amazon. You can ask Alexa to play music get weather reports, traffic information, control smart home devices, set reminders, and more. You'll need to install the Amazon Alexa app (for Apple iOS 11.0+ and Android OS 5.0+) on your compatible smartphone device to setup the JVC receiver for voice control.

You'll simply press The "Amazon Alexa" key on the JVC head unit to activate Alexa voice control and speak into the included external microphone. The receiver will provide display feedback during Alexa voice control - "Listening" appears while you are saying your voice command, "Thinking" appears when Alexa is processing your voice command, and "Speaking" appears while Alexa is responding to your voice command. Alexa and your requested content or information will be heard over your vehicle's speakers. Here are a few things you can do with Amazon Alexa voice control -

    • Music & Audiobooks: Using Amazon Alexa voice control your can select, play, and control your favorite music from Amazon Music, Pandora, iHeartRadio, TuneIn, Spotify, and SiriusXM.

    • Times & Alarms: Use your voice and Amazon Alexa, you can set timers and alarms.

    • Amazon Alexa voice control does not control non-Alexa source, audio, and menu functions of the JVC receiver.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth 4.2: The JVC KD-X370BTS is equipped with built-in Bluetooth 4.2, allowing you to make and receive phone calls wirelessly through the receiver; as well as stream music wirelessly from your smartphone to the head unit. In order to use Bluetooth wireless technology, your phone must also be Bluetooth compatible and be able to interpret certain profiles. This unit is compatible with the following Bluetooth Profiles:

    • Hands-Free Communication: HFP 1.7 (Hands Free Profile) & PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) & AVRCP 1.6 (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile).
    Note: Due to the differences in Bluetooth technology, some Bluetooth enabled devices may be incompatible, function improperly, or may not support all features when used with the JVC KD-X370BTS. Check here for the latest Bluetooth compatibility information.

You can even pair your Apple iPhone (iOS 5+) by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display.

    • Dual Phone Connection: Thanks to the Dual Phone Connection feature, two Bluetooth-enabled phones can remain connected to the JVC receiver. This means you can an answer an incoming call from either phone from the head unit. Also, both of your phone's contact lists are downloaded to the receiver. To make a call from one of the phones using the JVC receiver, you simply have to select Phone 1 or Phone 2 on the head unit's front-panel.
    • Streaming DJ: The new Streaming DJ feature allows five Bluetooth audio source devices to be connected to the JVC receiver at one time, so you can switch between Bluetooth playback sources a lot easier and quicker. While "BT Audio" source is selected on the head unit, you can simply press the music playback button on your connected Bluetooth source devices to switch between devices and begin music playback. However, you cannot stream audio from two different Bluetooth audio source devices at the same time or combine music libraries or playlists from two different connected devices.
    Note: You can pair up to five Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units.

    Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication: The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. And thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.7) with wideband speech capability, the KD-X370BTS provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls.

You can answer the call from the head unit's front-panel controls, or setup the head unit to automatically answer the incoming call immediately or after 1-30 seconds. The KD-X370BTS also supports the Call Waiting function, so you can answer another incoming call while suspending the current call you are on. Your compatible cell-phone must also support this feature.
    • Dialing A Number: Using the KD-X370BTS, you can dial a phone number in one of the following ways:
      • Enter Phone #: Allows you to directly dial a phone number up to 32 digits from the head unit's front-panel rotary dial.
      • Preset Dialing: You can store up to 6 contacts in the memory of this unit for speed dialing.
      • Phone Book: You can download phone book data from your mobile phone to the digital media receiver. You can then dial a contact within the phonebook from the head unit's front-panel controls. Your phonebook can be searched alphabetically or numerically.
      • Call History: The Call History is a list of calls that have originated from and were received by this unit that you can dial. You can select Outgoing, Incoming, or Missed calls.
      • Voice Dialing: If your mobile phone supports voice recognition, then you can dial out by voice command. Simply speak into the included microphone once you have activated the voice dialing function from the head unit's front-panel.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The JVC KD-X370BTS supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or audio player, plus song/artist information display. You are able to stream your stored music library on your Bluetooth-enabled smartphone, as well as music apps downloaded on your smartphone to the JVC KD-X370BTS for playback.

    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KD-X370BTS offers support of AAC. By supporting AAC, the KD-X370BTS offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
    • Advanced Music Browsing: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the KD-X370BTS lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. Advanced music browsing is supported by Android 4.0+ smartphones and Apple iPhones 5.0+ (specific advanced functions vary by phone).
    • Song/Artist Information: The head unit will also display your stored music and music app's song information; such as Artist name and Song/Album title (not compatible with all apps).
    Note: When an incoming call or outgoing call is in progress from your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone, audio streaming will be paused so you can take your call. Once the call is finished, your streaming music will resume.

    Siri Eyes Free Control: When paired to an iPhone with Siri via Bluetooth, the JVC KD-X370BTS has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KD-X370BTS to engage Siri and use the included microphone to communicate with Siri. Siri's voice will heard through your vehicle's speakers. All Siri functions including hands-free calling, music search, setting reminders, text-messaging, audible navigation, and more can be done through the head unit and its microphone. You can even ask Siri to get directions to a destination and the turn-by-turn instructions will heard through your vehicle's speakers, while the on-screen map still displays on your iPhone with Bluetooth; the head unit's audio is attenuated while Siri provides audible directions.

    Note: The head unit will only display hands-free calling and Bluetooth audio information (all other functions of Siri are only audible through the KD-X370BTS; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    External Mic: The external wired microphone offers improved audio quality versus an integrated microphone, so you can be heard easier over noisy traffic and road noise. You can adjust the volume level, noise cancellation, and echo cancellation of the microphone without affecting the other sources. The external microphone features an attached 10' cable terminated by a right-angle 3.5mm connector which plugs into the mic input on the rear-panel of the head unit. The microphone offers an integrated mounting bracket which can be clipped to your vehicle's sun-visor or taped to your dash.

    Audio Section

    24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-X370BTS in-dash digital media receiver utilizes a 24-bit (DAC (digital-to-analog converter) for superior sound quality.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KD-X370BTS 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 KD-X370BTS are as follows:

    • Full Bandwidth Power: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20-20kHz, 1% THD)
    • Maximum Output Power: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total watts)

    Amp Gain: When you are using the KD-X370BTS with factory speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to "low," the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 25 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to "high," and the volume control will range from 0 to 35.

    6ch/4V Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The JVC KD-X370BTS features front, rear and subwoofer 4-volt preamp outputs. The front and rear speaker preamp outputs are balance and fade adjustable. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading and offers independent level control (-50 to +10).

    Subwoofer Speaker Connection: You can connect a subwoofer to this head unit without the need of a separate power amplifier. Simply connect a single subwoofer (4-8 ohm) directly to head unit's left rear speaker leads (the right rear speaker output will be muted). The rated power output for the subwoofer speaker channel remains 22 watts. Same subwoofer controls apply, except the, subwoofer level adjustment is from -6 to+3.

    Vehicle Setup: In order to optimize the sound quality in your vehicle, you can indentify the type of vehicle you have and the rear speaker location, as well as configure listening distances.

    • Car Type: Select your car type to automatically set the delay time of each speaker for timing adjustment of sound output of each channel to have the highest surround effect. Choose from Compact, Full Size Car, Wagon, Mini Van, SUV, or Off
    • Rear Speaker Location: You can indicate the location of your vehicle's Rear speakers. Choose from Door, Rear Deck, 2nd Row, or 3rd Row.
    • DTA (Digital Time Alignment): For a better sound-stage you can select your optimal listening position. You can choose from All, Front Left, Front Right or Front. You can also select to manually fine tune the sound stage, using Digital Time Alignment (DTA) by selecting the distance (0-20') for each individual speaker in the vehicle compared to your listening position.

    It says built-in Amazon Alexa. How do you use/access that? What kind of setup is involved?
    [ ndeering  Jun 19, 2020 ]
    3 answers
    A
    Setup is just installing the Alexa app on your phone and activating it like a speaker. To use it once it is set up, you press the little Alexa circle in the lower right corner. It will not respond to voice until you press it. Then it works just like an Alexa auto, it you are familiar with that. On a personal note, when I use it, the Alexa's voice is quiet, so I turn it up. When I switch back to music, it blasts me out. I do not know how to adjust the two volumes separately. It may just be me or my phone, I have not taken the time to really investigate.

    I was not able to use the Alexa on my Android. I installed the required app but the headunit wasn't an option to connect to.
    [ RYAN  Jun 25, 2020 ]

    The setup is a little tricky. You must have a smartphone paired and connected to the receiver via Bluetooth. Following the instructions in the manual, you use the Alexa app on your smartphone to connect the receiver to the Alexa app as if it were a Bluetooth headset / headphones. Then if you get them connected right, you can press the Alexa button on the right below the USB port and it switches to Alexa and starts listening through the microphone (that comes with the head unit; put it in a good spot where it can hear like on top of your rear view mirror). If it hears a command then it will process it and speak a response through the head unit. Volume can be adjusted with the volume knob of course. Once it is done speaking its response it will remain in "Alexa" mode as if it were its own "source". There are indicators on the display for "Listening", "Speaking", etc to let you know what it's doing. To send a new command you have to press the Alexa button again and it will start listening again. If you want to go back to your music you tap the SRC button and it goes back to the last source you were on before you pressed Alexa. Do keep in mind the head unit processes commands using your smartphone's Alexa app and internet connection so you must have your phone paired and connected at all times for it to work. I've been able to use all major functions Alexa has to offer this way, including controlling smarthome devices (such as telling my lights to turn on or off at my house) through the receiver this way.

    Q
    This unit does not play folders in correct alphabetical order. How can I change this? Also it starts at Folder 02 and does not have Folder 01.
    [ Hector  Jun 17, 2020 ]
    1 answer
    A
    Mine plays files and folders in alphabetical order. Keep in mind that numbers and special characters are always listed first before letters so make sure your folder and file names / structure is clean or else it won't play the songs in order like you expect it to. This radio does not read and display APE or IDv3 tag data except for the song that is actively being played so you must simulate it for easy navigation by naming your files and folders in a good logical structure like I explained to you in your other question about supported flash drive sizes a few months ago. The head unit will not be able to read all of your folders and files if you have too many folders and folders inside folders (called nested folders) on your USB drive. This can cause some folders to never show up in the file listing and get dropped off. I had to sort mine by "Artist \ Albumname-track#-songtitle" or else I hit the folder limit quickly when I had it separated by "Artist \ Album \ track#-songtitle". Finally make sure your flash drive is properly formatted in FAT32 as the head unit has problems reading exFAT (default for large flash drives) and it doesn't understand NTFS (default for large portable HDDs and SSDs formatted using Windows) at all. The manual doesn't say the head unit plays USB drive songs in any way other than alphabetical so it must be one of the above issues.

    Q
    Will this unit recognize up to 256Gb USB flash drive? What is the max number of folders and files it can recognize?
    [ Hector  May 22, 2020 ]
    1 answer
    A
    I have a 1TB SSD hooked up to mine with an adapter. Your 256GB flash drive will work so long as it is in FAT32 format. It will support up to 999 individual folders across the entire storage device. Browsing your files is done in a directory and filename method, so some planning on how you organize your files is important. If you have a lot of nested folders (folders within folders) then it will take quite some time to scan the USB device. Try to limit the number of folders across your USB drive to keep the scanning speed down. I have my files organized by Genre (such as Rock, Pop, etc), then a folder inside with the artist name, then inside each folder I renamed all the music files to keep it somewhat sane for organization. So something like this: "Genre\Artist\Year Album - Track. Title". My startup scan time is about ten seconds from radio power on till it resumes the last song I was playing, and I have around 15,000 FLAC and MP3 files and 170 folders totaling 415GB on my USB drive.

    Can you stream apple music while on bluetooth?
    [ Mabrage  Mar 09, 2020 ]

    A
    It works in a similar way to a Bluetooth speaker. If you pair your phone to the head unit over BT and start any app or game on your phone, it will play through the head unit like it were a BT speaker. Skipping tracks and pausing through Apple Music should still work by using the head unit controls, but I cannot be 100% certain as I do not use that service. Works for me with my phone's built-in media player and apps like Spotify.
