Is your system sounding a little anemic? D-Bass bumps up the bass response in two levels so you can pinpoint the right amount of thump. 12-second Advanced Electronic Shock Protection makes skipping a thing of the past.

The FM modulator (that converts the CD audio into FM) is built into the chassis so there's one less thing to install. A wireless remote is included.

Antenna adapters might be required — if you haven't already done so, please enter your vehicle information (click on "What Fits My Car?" above) and we'll include them free with your order (if needed).

Features

Built-In FM Modulator: For increased installation flexibility, the FM modulator has been integrated into the CD changer.

Transmitting Frequencies: The modulator has 9 FM transmitting frequencies. You can select the following transmitting frequencies from the wired remote/display: 88.3, 88.5, 88.7, 88.9, 89.1, 89.3, 89.5, 89.7, or 89.9MHz.

D-Bass with Auto Level Adjust: D-bass uses a sharper curve than standard loudness controls to give you more bass without interfering with mids and highs. Besides "D-bass off", there is D-bass 1, and 2, each of which gives you progressively more bass. As the volume level is increased, the D-bass level is automatically reduced to ensure the bass boost doesn't overpower your speakers at high volumes.

Shuffle Play: There are three shuffle play modes: "SHUF-DISC" mode plays all tracks on the current disc in random order. "SHUF-CHGR" mode plays all the discs in random order. "SHUF-ALBM" mode plays all tracks on the current album (MP3 file) in random order.

Repeat Play: There are three repeat modes: "REP-TRACK" mode repeats the current track. "REP-DISC" mode repeats the current disc. "REP-ALBM" mode repeats the current album (MP3 folder).

Adjustable Output Level: The output level can be changed to match the FM level and can be set to one of 5 levels.

Last Position Memory: If the unit is shut off while a CD is playing, the next time the unit is turned on, playback will resume from the point where it left off.

Mounting: This unit may be installed vertically, horizontally, or at an angle between 0 and 90 degrees.

MP3 Playback: This unit can play constant and variable bit rate MP3 files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo in the expansion format or in Multi Session. During MP3 playback, the following functions are available:

  • Folder up/down 
  • File up/down 
  • File audible search
  • Direct Album Search: using the supplied remote control, you can directly access discs
  • Direct File Selection: using the supplied remote control, you can directly access files
  • File Repeat Play: repeats the current file
  • Folder Repeat Play: repeats the current folder
  • Random Play: all files in a folder are played in random order
  • Pause
  • Resume Play: if the unit is shut off while an MP3 CD is playing, the next time the unit is turned on, playback will resume from the point where it left off

Note: The elapsed time may not be displayed accurately when playing VBR (variable bit rate) MP3 files.
