MOSFET Amplifier: The Axxera AV1014BH 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
AVH614BH are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 18 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts

your music listening. In User mode, you can adjust the head unit's Bass & Treble

last volume level adjustment when turned off, or turn-on to a pre-defined volume
level (0-40) every time you power up the radio.

Rear-View Camera Input: The Camera Input consists of a
Composite video RCA jack for connecting an optional
rear-view back-up camera (sold separately). This RCA input enables you to
connect a rear-view camera to display the area behind your vehicle. The
increased view encourages and facilitates safer driving. When an optional
rearview camera is connected to this unit, the rear view image is displayed on
the screen when your vehicle is placed in reverse gear (brown wire of harness must

approximately 1.25 seconds. Audio from your music source will continue playing,
while the back-up camera is displayed.
