Get hands-free for two phones

Bluetooth enables you to wirelessly stream audio, as well as make and receive hands-free phone calls with any compatible phone. This receiver will automatically pair up to an iPhone® or an Android™, and you can quickly switch between two paired phones — handy for vehicles with more than one driver. You can install the included wired microphone close to you, so callers can hear you loud and clear.

What can you play?

You'll really enjoy playing music from Pandora® and iHeartRadio® on this great-sounding receiver. If you're an iPhone user, you can now tune into Apple Music® for even more variety. You can also add a SiriusXM tuner to this JVC to enjoy satellite radio stations that won't fade away, no matter how long the drive. And don't worry, the KW-R925BTS includes a sensitive AM/FM tuner to catch all your local stations too.

You can also bring your own music, podcasts, or audiobooks along for the ride, too. This receiver offers a CD player, a front aux input for a portable music player, and front and rear USB ports that can handle your MP3, WMA, WAV, and FLAC music files.

JVC KW-R920BTS CD receiver

Change the color in three different display zones to suit your lighting or your mood.

Tweak the sounds...

Once you've got the music going, you can shape your sound with the onboard 13-band graphic equalizer. JVC's K2 technology spruces up the sound of digital music by expanding the compressed bit rate, and you can add more kick to any source with the loudness switch and bass boost. If you're adding amplifiers or a powered subwoofer, the three sets of 4-volt preamp outputs provide you the clean signal you need for added output.

...and the sights

You can assign different colors to three separate areas of the display for just the right look in your dash, or keep them all the same color for a unified look. Plus, you can set the illuminated display to dim at a specific time or when you turn your headlights on. And if you'd like to avoid being seen from the next town, JVC included brightness controls for the perfect amount of light in your dash.

Want to keep your car's steering wheel audio controls?

In most cars, you'll need an adapter to retain those controls with this car stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and radio, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. You'll see the adapters that work with your vehicle when you add this receiver to your cart.

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.

    Built-in Bluetooth

    Bluetooth Technology: The JVC KW-R925BTS is equipped with built-in Bluetooth (version 2.1+EDR/3.0), 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 1.6 (Hands Free Profile), OPP 1.1 (Object Push Profile), PBAB 1.0 (Phone Book Access Profile).
    • Audio Streaming: A2DP 1.2 (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile), AVRCP 1.5 (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 KW-R925BTS. Check here for the latest Bluetooth compatibility information.

    Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) + Auto Pairing (via USB): With Secure Simple Pairing (SSP), you can easily pair a Bluetooth enabled phone to the JVC KW-R925BTS without having to enter pin codes or go through complicated settings. You can even pair your Apple iPhone (iOS 5+) or Android smartphone (running JVC Music Play App) by simply connecting it to the JVC head unit via USB and following a single prompt on the head unit's display. When an already paired Bluetooth device is in close proximity to the receiver, the auto connection function automatically pairs the two units. You can pair up to ten Bluetooth-enabled devices to the JVC head unit, with a maximum of two Bluetooth phones and one Bluetooth audio device connected at one time.

    Bluetooth Hands-Free Communication (w/ External Mic): The head unit supports Bluetooth hands-free communication for your Bluetooth enabled mobile phone. And thanks to the latest Hands-Free Profile (HFP 1.6) with wideband speech capability, the KW-R925BTS provides more natural sound quality and details during wireless calls. The controls of the KW-R925BTS can be used to dial a number, answer an in-coming call, or end a call. The unit also includes an external microphone (with mounting bracket) featuring adjustable gain, so you can carry on your side of the conversation while listening to the caller through your vehicles speakers. During a conversation, you can switch between the Private Mode (talking directly on your cell phone) and the Hands Free Mode.

    • Answering A Call: When a call comes in, a ring-tone will be heard through your vehicle's speaker and the caller's name or phone number will be displayed. 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 KW-R925BTS 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 KW-R925BTS, 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 CD receiver. You can then dial a contact within the phonebook from the head unit's front-panel controls.
      • 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. 
    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.

    Wireless Audio Streaming: The JVC KW-R925BTS supports wireless audio playback (AD2P) and control (AVRCP) of a Bluetooth-enabled smartphone or audio player, plus song/artist information display and support for AAC music streaming.

    • Stored Music & Music Apps: 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 KW-R925BTS for playback.
    • SBC + AAC Codecs: In addition to support for the standard SBC Bluetooth audio codec, the KW-R925BTS offers support of AAC.  By supporting AAC, the KW-R925BTS offers better audio performance of the music streamed from your Apple iPod, iPhone, or iPad.
    • Advanced Music Playback: In addition to basic playback functions (Play/Pause, FF/RW, Skip, Random/Repeat), the KW-R925BTS lets you browse your stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, etc. (AVRCP 1.4+ phones only).
    • 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 KW-R925BTS has the ability to access Siri through its front-panel control and external microphone. Simply press the "phone command" button on the KW-R925BTS 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 KW-R925BTS; visual data will still need to be viewed from your iPhone device).

    Android & iPhone Integration

    Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0) Connectivity:  The JVC KW-R925BTS's front-panel or rear-panel USB ports let you connect your AOA 2.0 compatible Android smartphone for music playback. JVC does not guarantee operation with all Android devices. Click here for the most current list of compatible Android smartphones. There are two Android AOA 2.0 modes to choose from based on what content you want to listen to and how you want to control it.

    • Hand Mode: The JVC KW-R925BTS supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0), which lets  you connect your Android  (OS 4.1+) smartphone to the KW-R925BTS's front- or rear-panel USB port and listen to stored music and music apps from your Android device through the JVC head unit. You'll be able to control basic playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. Other advanced music navigation will still be done from your Android smartphone's touchscreen. In this mode, the head unit will not display song/artist information; only "Audio Mode" will show up on display. You'll continue to view song/artist information from the Android device's touchscreen. You'll also still be able to access other functions and applications from your Android smartphone's touchscreen, while listening to music through the head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.
    • JVC Music Play App: Downloading the JVC Music Play app onto your Android (OS 4.1+) smartphone not only allows you to listen to stored music from your Android device through the JVC CD receiver connected via USB, but it also lets you browse your Android smartphone's music library from the head unit's front-panel controls. You can browse your store music library by Playlist, Artist, Song, Album, or Genre. You can also control Play/Pause and Previous/Next track from the head unit. In addition, the head unit will display song/artist information. You can exit the JVC Music Play app to access other functions and applications of your Android smartphone, while your stored music library is still playing through your head unit. If you make a call or answer a call from your smartphone while listening to music in this mode, the music will pause until you are finished with the call and then start back up again.

    iPhone Direct Connection: The JVC KW-R925BTS's front- or rear-panel USB port can be used to connect your Lightning-connector or 30-pin dock connector iPod/iPhone to the head unit. The KW-R925BTS supports audio playback, music navigation, information display, and charging of your compatible Apple device.

    • Lightning Connector: If you have a newer iPod/iPhone with the Lightning-connector, you can use JVC's Lightning connector-to-USB cable (105KSU62, sold separately) or the Lightning-to-USB cable that came with your Apple device to connect your iPod/iPhone to the KW-R925BTS.
    • 30-Pin Dock Connector: If you have an older iPod/iPhone with a 30-pin dock connector, you can will need to use the dock connector-to-USB cable that comes with your Apple device or a "Made For iPod/iPhone" 30-pin-to-USB cable (sold separately) to connect your iPod/iPhone to the KW-R925BTS.

    iPhone Audio Playback: The USB connection allows your iPod/iPhone's stored music and music apps to be loaded instantly to the head unit and sound quality to be maximized through the head unit's 16-bit D/A converter, allowing for a Signal to Noise ratio up to 105dB. The JVC head unit supports audio playback of stored music, music apps, and podcasts on your iPod or iPhone. The KW-R925BTS provides music control and song/artist information display. You can choose between two operating modes.

    • Head Unit Mode + Song/Artist Info: From the head unit's front-panel controls you can search for stored music by Playlist, Artist, Album, Song, Podcast, Genre, and Composer. The contents of a Playlist or Category can be searched alphabetically or numerically. The KW-R925BTS also supports Repeat (file/all) and Random (album/all) playback functions of stored music on your iPod/iPhone. In addition, you'll be able to control basic playback functions (such as Play/Pause, Previous/Next Track) from stored music and select music apps streamed to your iPhone. During Head Unit Mode, the KW-R925BTS will display your iPod/iPhone's music file information such as Track number, Elapsed playing time, Artist name, Song title, and Album title. Newer iPod/iPhones with iOS 6.0+ allow you to continue to access your Apple device's touchscreen in this mode in order to access other applications; older iPod/iPhone devices will be locked during connection.
    • iPod/iPhone Mode: The iPod/iPhone Mode lets you control your older iPod/iPhone (iOS 5.1.1 and earlier) from its clickwheel or touchscreen. You'll still have access to basic playback controls (like Play/Pause & Previous/Next Track) from the head unit, but advanced navigation functions will be locked. No song/artist information is displayed in this mode. The unit will simply display "App & iPod Mode".

    USB Charging: The head unit's USB connection provides 1.5A of current to power and charge your connected iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone when your vehicle's ignition switch is set to the 'ACC' or 'On' position (if your iPod/iPhone or Android smartphone has no initial battery charge, then the unit will not recognize it).

    Playback & Search Functions: The JVC KW-R925BTS offers a variety of playback and search functions to help you find and enjoy your music on disc and USB.

    • Track/Folder List: The Track/Folder List displays a list of music folders and tracks on an inserted CD or USB device, so you can easily access your music.
    • Repeat: Track Repeat (plays the current track repeatedly), Folder Repeat (plays all tracks of the current folder repeatedly), Off (cancels repeat function)
    • Random: Folder Random (plays all tracks of the current folder, then the tracks of the next folder in random), All Random (plays all tracks of the current disc at random), Off (cancels random function)
    • Resume: If you change the source, playback also stops (without ejecting the disc or USB device). Next time you select CD or USB for the playback source, the player will start from where it has been stopped previously.

    Front-Panel Auxiliary Input: A front-panel stereo minijack is provided to allow the connection of almost any portable audio source with a 3.5mm headphone output. Simply connect your portable digital music player to the unit's front-panel auxiliary input, and you can listen to the audio from the portable player through the speakers in your mobile audio system.

    Audio Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KW-R925BTS 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 KW-R925BTS 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 KW-R925BTS 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 KW-R925BTS 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).

    A
    I like that I can select different colors on the display. This receiver is replacing the piece of garbage in my 2009 hyundai accent, so anything aftermarket would be an upgrade. Also, I went with a double DIN because I don't want the little pocket that's necessary with a single DIN. In the end, a choice is anyone's preference of $ vs quality/function. Do what you will. This is what I bought. Happy searching! [ Bryan  Mar 14, 2018 ]

Thought about a touch screen but didn't see a unit with radio tuning specs. The lowere price units had very inconsistent reviews. It's gong into a 08 Mustang GT with shaker system.

    After comparing different brands and models, I decided on the JVC based on it's features, reviews by other customers (both on this site and on other sites) and I also really like the front layout of the buttons as well as the custom color layout on this particular head unit - on the sides, it reminds me of the old school juke boxes.

    I have a few JVC products at home and have never had a problem with them. I purchased this unit several months ago and put it into a Hyundai Santa Fe. It was easy to install, it has a ton of added features that other radios don't have. The sound is warm and full, there are many ways to tune the sound, with presets and/or equalizers. Overall I was very happy with the past purchase and decided to purchase another one for my Hyundai Elantra. [ Aric  Sep 18, 2017 ]

    I now own FIVE of these (or their predecessors). Fantastic quality for ~$110. Low level line outs provide great signal to amps.

    it has automatic illumination, but if not adequate allows user to adjust, I had installed a previous unit which was too bright at night (very distracting) and was not adjustable. its power output (22 watts) appears good without additional amplification at least for my use. The reviews were many and good, the unit was a good value, and came with a 2-year warranty. [ Peter  May 19, 2017 ]

    This JVC is a SiriusXM radio, an upgrade to my wife's current JVC KW-R800BT, which works fine. However, the Sirius SC-C1 tuner died and the new SiriusXM tuner is not backwards compatible. Shockingly, it's actually less expensive to buy a better, newer JVC KW-R925BTS unit with a new SiriusXM tuner than replace the SC-C1 tuner that is obsolete. Let's hope this new SiriusXM tuner last longer than four years. Loved the Bluetooth phone feature and looking forward to better Equalization feature. [ THOMAS  Nov 29, 2016 ]

    This head unit is the perfect balance of features, price, and functionality. After having visited numerous big box stores to see the in store displays to get a feel for the feedback of the buttons and witness the damage to be expected with long term use, JVC display models always feel like the buttons and dials hold up better and are never damaged on the display floor like some of the other brands. Also, the display is still very readable when in high glare situations which is a big plus. [ Troy  Oct 23, 2016 ]

    Anyone have this deck with Subs & an amp? If so how are you liking it?

    I installed this in my wife's daily driver because the CD player stopped working. I feel the unit is under powered compared to the sound from the standard OEM radio but I have only begun researching amps as well. This radio puts out ~22 RMS, I believe. I haven't been able to determine what the standard OEM radio was rated or what the stock speakers are capable of handling. Best of luck.

    It offers both low end outputs and direct speaker connections for two front, two rear and a sub. Using the Low End outputs (RCA jacks) to your amps can be done with one sub amp, you can use 1 or 2 amps for your front and rear speakers depending on your setup. I prefer low end outputs and it works great with my amps and my subwoofer. 1 KW sub, 400 watts on my front speakers 550 watts on my rear deck speakers, 2 caps, 1 strictly for the subs (12" JL audios). Really sounds great once dialed in..... Use good wire!!!!!

Hardest part is figuring out where to mount the antenna puck, there is about 20-25' of wire with the antenna puck, just testfit the location to make sure you don't short yourself. I was able to mount mine on roof right above back window, then fished the wire under rubber window seals and to the deck, took about an hour on a sunny day. Looks like a stock install and I have run car through aoutmatic car washes since without problem. The toughest part was programming the steering controls, but with a few minutes of tech guidence that too works just fine with same features at OEM unit. Hope this helps.??

    There is built in tuning options for microphone "gain" control and a background noise filter that allows you to perfectly tune the microphone sensitivity for your vehicle. For best results, have a passenger adjust the settings for you while holding a conversation on the phone and getting feedback regarding call quality while passenger adjusts the settings. This unit does not work with any third party enhancer that I'm aware of.

    Not that I could find. It is a standard mic jack (same as a computer microphone) so you can upgrade the mic itself. Before you do that though, make sure the mic volume is up. Factory default is very low. To change it, make a call from the unit, then go into the menu and you will see an option to change it. That made a huge difference for me.
