Radio — and more

Anyone who drives a lot knows the pain of finding a great radio station, only to have it fade away. You can add a SiriusXM satellite radio tuner to the JHD13630B, and gain access to coast-to-coast reception of some of the most entertaining radio around. Of course, the built-in AM/FM tuner lets you keep up with favorite local radio stations, and the Weather Band tuner has automatic NOAA weather alerts so you won't be caught by surprise by severe weather. The Radio Broadcast Data Service (RBDS) alerts you to traffic conditions in select areas.

Plug your your iPod® or iPhone® into the front-panel USB port, and you'll be able to access your playlists through the receiver's controls, as well as view song information on the display. If you want some other options, you can plug other audio devices into the front minijack or the rear RCA auxiliary inputs. For workplace communications, add an optional microphone and external speaker and let 'em hear you with the PA function.

This digital media receiver will not play CDs. If you want to play CDs in your vehicle, we offer a wide selection of CD receivers.

    Heavy Duty Series

    Heavy Duty: The Jensen Heavy Duty JHD1630 is an AM/FM/RBDS/WB in-dash receiver which offers a front-panel USB port for iPod, dual Aux inputs, and is SiriusXM ready (requires optional tuner). Jensen Heavy Duty series head units are specifically designed, built, and tested to withstand even the harshest road and work conditions, such as humidity, electrostatic discharge, vibrations, and temperature fluctuations. Its entire front panel is an impervious membrane protected to prevent dirt, grime from accessing control panel through pushbutton gaps. The head unit's conformal coated PCB board and heavy-duty design specification provides maximum durability under all conditions. The following tests are performed on Jensen's Heavy Duty in-dash receivers.

    • Extreme Temperature & Humidity Test: Tested to ensure that the unit will fully function in -22° F to 158° F temperatures, as well as up to 95% relative humidity.
    • Vibration Test: Tested to withstand 4G's at 20-500Hz for 9 hours to ensure the unit can withstand the extreme environments most commonly met in heavy duty applications.
    • RF Performance Test: The RF Chamber test ensures that the stereo keeps clean signals in and the bad signal out, so you are always left with a steady signal without outside interference.
    • Electrostatic Discharge Test: The Electrostatic Discharge Test exposes the radio to up to 25 kilovolts to make sure it can withstand the most severe static build-up while you are out on the job.
    • Severe Electrical Environment Test: The Jensen Heavy Duty radio is designed to survive an alternator battery disconnection, because it is equipped with the necessary component to prevent "Load Dump" destruction.
    Note: This head unit does not contain a CD-slot.

    Single DIN Mounting: This unit is designed for installation in a vehicle with an existing 1-DIN radio opening. In many cases a special installation kit will be required to mount the radio to your vehicle's dashboard. The JHD1630 features an integrated trim-ring (non-removable) and pre-installed cage (removable). Please consult the Crutchfield Car Selector to see if your vehicle is compatible.

    2-Line Power System: The Jensen Heavy Duty series head unit features a 2-Line Power System which prevents battery drain when the vehicle is turned off.

    this is only the 3rd stereo I've ever replaced, so I can't say how the size is compared to other radios, but it fit with no issue when replacing the stock unit in my jeep wrangler. I don't recall there being any fit issues whatsoever. it's been a good unit and I haven't had any issues out of it.

    I didn't measure it before I put it in my tractor, but it seemed to fit a standard hole.
