Our take on the Dual X2DMA400

Nothing puny about this display
Big dial, big buttons, big letters on the display — you won't have to squint at the X2DMA400 CD receiver from your place in the driver's seat. It fills your double-DIN (4" tall) dash opening and gives you lots of ways to play your favorite tunes.

Big dial, big buttons, big letters on the display — you won't have to squint at the X2DMA400 CD receiver from your place in the driver's seat. It fills your double-DIN (4" tall) dash opening and gives you lots of ways to play your favorite tunes.

Bring all your music
Are you an iPod® lover? Satellite radio fan? Or do you prefer storing your tunes on a memory card or portable thumb drive? Dual has you covered no matter how you like to play music in your car. Plug in your iPod or iPhone® to the front-panel USB slot, and you can access your iTunes™ library while you charge your player. You can slide in a USB thumb drive loaded with digital tunes, and you can even put your files on an SD™ card and pop it into the front-panel slot.

Add SiriusXM Satellite Radio
SiriusXM's compact tuner (not included) not only brings more than 100 channels of entertainment to your dash, but also some features found in their Dock & Play radios. You can pause, rewind, and replay live programming, plus get a heads up when your favorite team or artist is coming on another channel. You'll need a subscription and the tuner, of course.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Dual stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the X2DMA400, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

    Display Features

    2-DIN Chassis: The Dual X2DMA400 has a 2-DIN chassis (also known as Double DIN), and will fit in many vehicles with a large dash opening. The unit can be ISO-mounted using factory brackets, or Euro-mounted using the supplied mounting sleeve.

    Note: As always, please consult Crutchfield's Outfit My Car to verify fit with your vehicle.

    Full-Graphic LCD: The large, full-graphic LCD and two multi-function rotary control knobs make it easy and convenient to operate the intuitive menu-driven interface.

    Display Settings: The head unit offers the following display settings.

    • Scrolling: You can change the scrolling style used for displayed information on the LCD screen. Choose from Off (no scrolling), Once (scrolls once), 15 Secs (scrolls once per 15 seconds), and On (constantly scrolls).
    • Display Dimmer: The head unit's display features three illumination dimmer settings (High/Medium/Low).

    12/24 Hour Clock: The unit's built-in clock will display 12-hour AM/PM time in USA frequency spacing mode. In European frequency spacing mode, the clock will display 24-hour time.

    Note: The clock can be set to stay on even when the head unit is turned off.

    Power-On Message: This feature allows a "Good Morning/Afternoon/Evening" text message to be shown on the unit's LCD screen when it is powered on.

    Demo Mode: You can enable or disable the  units demonstration mode.

    Audio Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual X2DMA400 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.

    CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the X2DMA400 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. The power output specs for the X2DMA400 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 total)

    Preset EQ Curves: The Dual CD Receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Classic, Beat, Rock, & User) to customize your music listening.

    Bass &Treble: The Bass & Treble can be independently adjusted from -6 to +6. Bass & Treble settings are retained for each mode individually. Any adjustments to the Bass or Treble settings automatically cancel the current EQ curve.

    Loudness: The Loudness function enhances the bass & treble frequencies at low volumes. The Loudness can be set to 1, 2, 3, or Off.

    2V/4Ch Preamp Outputs: The X2DMA400 is equipped with two sets of preamp outputs (Front, Rear/Sub). The unit's rear-channel can be used as a full-range preamp output with fade control, or as a non-fading subwoofer preamp output. When used as a subwoofer preamp output the level can be adjusted independently from 0-12. Adjusting the subwoofer level to 0 turns the subwoofer output off.

    Source Volume Level: The Source Volume Level control allows a gain adjustment for each audio source (Tuner, CD, Aux and USB). You can set the source volume level (+/-6dB) for each mode, depending on the relative volume of each audio source.

    Program Volume: You can se the X2DMA400 to power-on to the same volume level (1-46) every time.

    Key Beep: When this function is enabled, every button press will output a beep tone.

    AM/FM + SiriusXM Ready

    AM/FM Tuner: The Dual X2DMA400 features a built-in AM/FM tuner with manual, seek, scan, and preset tuning.

    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.

    Local: The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals.

    European Tuning: You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.

    SiriusXM Ready: The Dual XDMA400 comes ready for SiriusXM programming with access to XM & Sirius Satellite Radio stations. Thanks to its proprietary SiriusXM Connect port, you can add the optional SXV200V1 SiriusXM Connect tuner and receive more than 150 channels of exclusive programming directly from SiriusXM, via the "SiriusXM All Access" package (subscription required).
