Audio & DSP Section
High-Resolution Audio Playback: You can enjoy playback of 96kHz/24bit
audio which contains about 3 times the musical information of music CDs
(44.1kHz/16bit), or even 192kHz/24bit High-Resolution Audio files with their
approximate 6.5 times data volume. With high sound quality approaching the
original master recording itself, you will experience the presence and ambience
of a tune the way CD simply cannot.
MOSFET Amplifier: The JVC KW-V820BT 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-V820BT 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
6ch/4V Preamp Outputs + Sub Control: The KW-V820BT is
equipped with 6ch/4.0V preamp outputs (Front, Rear, Subwoofer). The front and
rear preamp outputs allow fader control, while the subwoofer preamp output is
non-fading. You can adjust the KW-V820BT's subwoofer output level (-50 to +10)
independently from the head unit's main volume control for added bass volume.
You can also adjust the phase of the subwoofer output between 180-degrees
(Reverse) or 0-degrees (Normal).
K2 Technology: K2 is a JVC original technology that reproduces the
original master sound by expanding the bit rate and frequency range. K2 is
compatible with all sources including CD. For example, K2 will expand the
digital data of the audio CD recorded at 44.1kHz/16 bit to 48 kHz/24 bit, and
recreate the high-frequency range above 20kHz that is cut during the CD
Sound Optimization: The JVC KW-V820BT offers a vast array of sound
adjustment functions to fine-tune and customize the acoustics of your car stereo
system exactly the way you want.
- Equalizer: Use the JVC head unit's built-in EQ to
adjust the sound to your taste. Each frequency of the 13-Band EQ (100Hz,
160Hz, 250Hz, 400Hz, 630Hz, 1kHz, 1.6kHz, 2.5kHz, 4kHz, 6.3kHz, 10kHz, &
16kHz) can be adjusted from -9 to +9. Or, simply choose from one of eight
preset sound modes (Flat, Pops, Easy, Top40, Jazz, Powerful, Rock, or User
1-4) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The unit's Volume Link EQ boosts specific frequencies in the
audio signal to compensate for the impact of road noise. It boosts
frequencies in the music that are affected by road noise.
- Time Alignment: By selecting the car type, speaker type, and the distance to
the center of the listening position, the head unit will automatically
adjust the timing of the sound output from each of the speakers so that the
sound from each of the speakers will arrive exactly at the same time to the
listening position. The Front Focus feature even lets you localize the sound
image in front of a selected seat.
- Sound Effects: The KD-R975BTS offers adjustable Sound
Effects to provide a better listening experience inside your vehicle. Use
the "Space Enhancement" feature to virtually broaden the soundstage inside
your vehicle. Use the "Sound Lift" feature to virtually lift the sound to
ear level. And use the "Sound Response" feature to virtually make the sound
more realistic and live inside your car.
- Loudness, Bass Boost & Bass Extension: The Loudness
feature boosts low and high frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at
a low volume level. The unit's Bass Boost enhances low bass frequencies at
any volume level. There is also a Bass Extension feature which further
enhances the unit's bass output.
High Pass & Low Pass Crossovers: Allows you to set
high-pass and low-pass crossovers for a Front, Rear, and
Subwoofer speaker setup. You can independently customize the high-pass
crossover for the front & rear speakers, with a separate low-pass crossover for
the sub output.
- Frequency: Choose between 30Hz, 40Hz, 50Hz, 60Hz, 70Hz, 80Hz,
90Hz, 100Hz, 120Hz, 150Hz, 180Hz, 220Hz, 250Hz, or Through (Full-Range).
- Slope: Select from -6dB, -12dB, -18dB, or -24dB.
- Gain: Adjustable between -8 to 0 dB.
Volume Offset: The level of each source may be independently
adjusted to prevent radical leaps in output volume when switching from one
source to another. The available settings range from -8 to +6.
Dynamic Range: The dynamic range can be adjusted by
selecting either Normal, Wide or Dialog. Dialog makes the total sound volume
become larger as compared with Wide and Normal, allowing you to listen to the
movie's dialogue more clearly. This is effective only on Dolby Digital content
Source Beep: The in-dash receiver provides an audible beep
to confirm source selection. This function can be turned On or Off.

composite video connector which allows you to connect an optional
rear-view camera (sold separately). By connecting a rear view camera, you

- Parking Guide Lines: When a rear-view camera is
connected and you are viewing a rear view image, parking guide lines appear
on-screen making parking easy and safer. There are three color-coded
horizontal guidelines and two vertical guidelines.
- Rear-View Auto Switching: The video from this
connection can be set to display when switched to this input, or display the
rear view camera video automatically when the vehicle is shifted into
Reverse gear. The purple/white wire of wiring harness must be
connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit for automatic video
switching. Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.8 seconds.
Note: The rear view camera feature is meant as a back-up
aid only; never solely rely on the rear-view camera when backing-up. In
addition to using the rear-view camera, always look behind you to make sure
everything is clear when backing up your vehicle.
AV Output (with Dual Zone): The unit features a composite
video jack and 3.5mm audio jack to output AV signals to an optional monitor and

GPS Receiver & Antenna: The JVC head unit features a
built-in GPS receiver and comes with a GPS antenna to enhance the performance of
the unit's navigation map from CarPlay.
OEM Integration: This JVC DVD receiver is compatible with
the iDatalink Maestro RR (794ADSMRR,
sold separately); a web programmable module that will permit the aftermarket JVC
receiver to work with select Ford, Lincoln, and Mercury vehicles that feature
the factory SYNC system; as well as select GM vehicles with factory OnStar;
select Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep vehicles with U-Connect, select Toyota/Scion
vehicles, and select Volkswagens with factory digital amplifier.
- Retained Features: The iDatalink Maestro RR lets
Ford/Lincoln/Mercury, GM, Dodge/Chrysler, Toyota/Scion, and VW owners swap
out their factory radio for this aftermarket JVC head unit; while retaining
the Ford Sync system, GM OnStar system, Chrysler/Dodge/Jeep U-Connect
system, steering wheel controls, Bluetooth, USB interface, Satellite Radio,
and 911 assist. You also get to keep the hands-free mic that comes with the
car (which is specially tuned to that particular vehicle). *Retained
features will vary by vehicle.
- Extra Features: In some installations, the iDatalink
Maestro RR lets you configure the head unit to operate interior climate
controls and provides extra visual data; such as User Selectable Gauges,
Vehicle Info (Tire Pressure/Battery Voltage/Check Engine Codes/Door Ajar
Warning), and Visual Park Assist. *Extra features will vary by vehicle.
Note: The iDatalink Maestro RR is web programmable,
which means you'll need to flash the iDatalink Maestro RR interface module
with the correct firmware from
website. In addition to flashing the iDatalink Maestro RR module, you'll
also need a
vehicle specific harness (sold separately). The JVC receiver's OEM Setup
menu must also be configured with your compatible vehicle's factory system
before initial operation.
