What you'll need for DualMirror

The AV6995MB's DualMirror function relies on the receiver's front HDMI input to display your smartphone's apps, while the front USB port charges your phone. With your smartphone connected, you'll see your apps in action on the receiver's display. You can check out turn-by-turn directions from your navigation apps, as well as artist and track info from your music apps. And with Android phones, you can control your phone's function by using the Axxera's touchscreen controls.

Here's the lowdown on what you need depending on your smartphone:

Bluetooth® for hands-free calling and audio streaming

You'll be able to carry on hands-free phone conversations using the receiver's microphone, which is built into the front of the receiver for a simpler installation. And it'll work with most phones for wireless streaming audio, including displaying ID3 tags from your music files, so you can see album, artist, and song title info while on the go.

Added audio features

The AV6995MB lets you to play your own music on DVD, CD, or a USB drive full of MP3 or WMA files. You can use the robust 3-band equalizer, including seven presets, to adjust the tone for your separate audio sources. The three pairs of RCA preamp outputs will send out an ultra-clean 4-volt signal when it's time to add amps to your system.

Don't forget the video goods

You can watch your favorite DVDs on the built-in screen whenever you're parked, or send movies to two rear-seat screens when you're on the move. This Axxera includes front and rear A/V inputs, so you can add a portable video player or video game console to the multimedia mix.

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    The Stereo works great as does the DualMirror. I run Android Auto on my phone and view and conrtol it from the radio. This works great with Google Maps. My one complaint is installing this in my Jeep using the Metra 95-6511 Dash Kit required modification to the Dash Kit. Used as is the dash kit blocks the hdmi door on the front of the Stereo. I had to shave off some of the plastic on the Dash Kit so the Stereo could slide forward and allow the HDMI door to open.



    Nice for the money!

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    Installed in a 2006 Chevy Silverado 2500. Every thing works great and the unit was easy to install.

    Pros: Easy to use. Internal Mic works well.

    Cons: Distracting corner video while radio is playing. Clock loses the correct time and has to be manually updated at times.

    Needed adapter for my car and installed reverse camera. TEST your wiring before installing. I ran 2 extra wires with camera, 1 power, 1 trigger. The technicians are there to help. Crutchfield paired up all needed parts for install. Love the camera function.



    Radio fine. Support Excellent

    Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

    I think it's a decent radio. First one, the clock would randomly change. Tech support sent a new the following morning. Their tech support is awesome. Even if you find the same radio cheaper elsewhere, their support it great. I'll never buy from anywhere else. If you're not happy with any radio, they'll exchange it and if there's something wrong with it, they'll pay to ship it back. Who else does this?

    Audio & Tuner Section

    24-Bit DAC: The Axxera AV6995MB DVD receiver utilizes a high-performance 24-bit DAC for high quality sound.

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Axxera AV6995MB 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 AV6995MB are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 16 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 85 watts x 4 channels (340 watts total)
    Note: The power specifications for the AV6995MB are compliant with the CEA2006 Mobile Amplifier Power Testing and Measurement standards from the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA). These standards were developed as a way to equitably compare power specs from model to model and between manufacturers.

    4V/6Ch RCA Outputs + Sub Control: The AV6995MB features front, rear and subwoofer 4-volt RCA outputs. The front and rear speaker RCA outputs are balance and fade adjustable; the subwoofer RCA output is non-fading. The subwoofer RCA output offers independent volume control (1-12) and features a built-in low pass filter which can be set to 80, 120, or 160Hz.

    Dual EQ: The AV6995MB is equipped with Dual EQ software. The integrated equalizer offers 7 preset sound modes (Pop, Rock, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Flat, or User) suitable for the music genre of your choice. The User mode allows you to manually adjust the head unit's 6-band parametric EQ (Frequency, Q-Factor, & Level).

    Frequency Q-factor Level
    Bass Low 60, 80, 100, 200 Hz 1.0, 1.25, 1.5, 2.0 -7 to +7
    Midrange Mid 0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.5 kHz 0.5, 0.75, 1.0, 1.25 -7 to +7
    Treble High 10, 12, 15, 17.5 kHz Fixed -7 to +7
    Super High

    Loudness: The Loudness feature boosts certain frequencies to produce a well-balanced sound at a low volume level. The Loudness feature can be set to 3 levels and its Center Frequency can be adjusted to 400Hz, 800Hz, 2400Hz, or Flat.

    Beep Tones: An audible beep tone confirms each function selection. The beep tone can be disabled/enabled in the Setup Menu.

    AM/FM Tuner (w/ RDS): The Axxera AV6995MB features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, & preset tuning. The built-in AM/FM tuner allows you to store up to 18 FM station presets and 12 AM station presets. You can tune your presets manually or have the head unit do it automatically. The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals.

    • RDS: The Radio Data System (RDS) feature displays radio broadcast information such as artist, title, and album when listening to compatible FM stations.
    • European Tuning: You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.

    AV Connections

    Dual AV Inputs: The Axxera AV6995MB DVD receiver is fitted with two audio/video inputs. There is a front-panel 3.5mm audio/video input for connecting a temporary external AV source, such as a MP3 player or game console. There is also a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA input for connection of a permanent external audio/video source, such as a Blu-ray player or TV tuner.

    Video Outputs: In addition, the DVD receiver features two rear-panel composite video outputs for integration of a ceiling-mounted or headrest entertainment system in your vehicle. The video output will display whatever video signal (DVD or AV-IN) that is being displayed on the head unit's touchscreen monitor. The video out function is not compatible with the unit's HDMI input.

    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 (orange wire of harness must be connected to reverse light wire of vehicle). Automatic video switching takes approximately 1.1 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.

    Yes it will play DVDs and as long as its formatted correctly videos from CDs [ Nicholas  Jun 18, 2017 ]

    It will allow you to dim to a very low but still perceptible level. It does not dim to off. [ Stephen  Jun 15, 2017 ]
    No. But it does adjust way down. [ Tyler  Jun 15, 2017 ]
    On full brightness (8/8) it's a bit brighter than the rest of my dash. As you work down through the 8 brightness levels, it gets pretty dim, though never fully off. You can, obviously, turn the unit off completely while it's still on, which makes the screen black, but at the expense of it functioning. For reference, I put mine in a 2006 Volvo S60. Very happy with the unit though, especially since I got it on sale for $260. [ David  Jun 03, 2017 ]
    For safety reasons, you cannot view a video source on the built-in monitor as long as the vehicle is in motion. In order to display video, the pink wire of the included harness must be hardwired into the vehicle's parking brake light circuit, and the vehicle's parking brake must be engaged. The stereo does offer a video output so you can provide video content to an external, backseat monitor while the vehicle is in motion. [ Ryan  Apr 06, 2017 ]  Staff
