Overview

Our take on the Dual XR4120

If you're just not listening to CDs anymore, Dual's XR4120 digital media receiver gives you a wallet-friendly way to enjoy your music collection on the road. You can listen to your favorite AM/FM stations, plug a thumb drive full of music into the USB port, jack your music player into the front minijack aux input, or fold down the faceplate to insert an SD card. It all sounds great on this Dual receiver, thanks to the healthy output of the built-in MOSFET amplifier.

If you're just not listening to CDs anymore, Dual's XR4120 digital media receiver gives you a wallet-friendly way to enjoy your music collection on the road.

It all sounds great on this Dual receiver, thanks to the healthy output of the built-in MOSFET amplifier.

The detachable faceplate features a 10-character black-on-white display that's easy to read day or night. The included wireless remote adds convenience and control, while a set of rear preamp outputs will come in handy when you decide to expand your system.

I couldn't be more pleased with the items I have bought, and when I've had to talk with customer service, they were incredibly helpful. Will definitely be here for all of my car stereo and audio needs.

    Display & Remote Features

    USB/SD/Aux Input

    USB Port: The Dual XR4120 digital media receiver is equipped with front-panel full-speed USB (type-A) port for playback of MP3/WMA files stored on a compatible USB mass storage device, such as your Android smartphone (Froyo/Gingerbread OS only) or USB thumbdrive. The unit will recognize USB mass storage device with internal memory up to 64GB. The unit's USB port (max. 500mA) will also charge your USB device during connection.

    Note: The USB port does not support Apple iPod/iPhone/iPad or Android devices with newer operating systems.

    SD Card Slot: The Dual XR4120 digital media receiver is fitted with a front-panel SD-card slot that is hidden behind the head unit's detachable face-plate. The SD card slot supports playback of MP3/WMA files stored on SD and SDHC memory cards (up to 32GB).

    Supported Media Files: The MP3/WMA music files stored on your USB mass storage device or SD/SDHC memory card must meet the following requirements for proper playback on the XR4120.

    File System FAT/FAT32
    Compatible Files MP3, WMA
    Sampling Frequency MP3: 8-48khz, WMA: 8-48kHz
    Bit Rate MP3: 8-320kbps, WMA: 8-384kbps
    ID3 Tag Support MP3 Tags: version 1.0-2.0, WMA Tags
    File Folder Limit Maximum Files: 1,024; Maximum Folders: 512; Maximum Folder Levels: 8

    Playback & Search Functions: When a USB memory device or SD/SDHC memory card is first connected, playback will begin automatically. The XR4120 also offers the following playback & search features for MP3/WMA music files stored on your USB memory device or SD/SDHC memory card.

    • Play/Pause: Play or pause tracks.
    • Folder Access: Selects previous or next folder.

    Audio & Tuner Section

    MOSFET Amplifier: The Dual XR4120 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 XR4120 are as follows:

    • CEA2006 Specs: 16 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
    • Maximum Power Output: 60 watts x 4 channels (240 watts total)
    Note: The power specifications for the XR4120 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.

    2V/2Ch Preamp Outputs: The Dual XRA4120 features a pair of 2-volt preamp outputs to connect an external amplifier. The preamp outputs are fading and cannot be set to non-fading.

    Equalizer: The Dual digital media receiver features the following preset EQ curves (Flat, Pop, Jazz, Rock, & Off/User) to customize your music listening. The Bass & Treble can be independently adjusted from +/-7 when in Off/User EQ mode. Activating the Loudness feature will enhance the bass and treble frequencies when listening to music at low volumes.

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

    AM/FM Tuner: The Dual XR4120 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.

    • Preset Scan: The Preset Scan feature automatically scans your saved preset stations in the selected AM/FM band for five seconds each.
    • Local: The Local function allows only strong radio stations to be received, blocking stations with weaker signals.
    • Mono Mode: Selecting the Mono mode can improve reception in areas with weak FM signals.
    Note: You can switch the tuner between USA or European tuning.

    Display & Remote Features

    Detachable Face: The Dual digital media receiver features a detachable faceplate to deter theft (no face case is supplied). An optional soft face case (142DFC1X, sold separately) can be purchased for this unit.

    10-Character LCD: The XR4120 features a 10 character LCD with white text & black background for easy viewing during the day or nighttime; plus blue button illumination.

    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.

    Wireless Remote Control: The XR4120 comes supplied with an 17-button IR remote control which provides wireless control over the Dual digital media receiver.

    37 questions already asked

    I've noticed that when I use an aux cord it doesn't happen, but when I use the radio it pops and is definitely not as clear. [ Paula  Jun 13, 2017 ]
    Well, maybe. If you have an installation that is not standard. Often cructhfield has all of the connectors you need that would not require any soldiering. They even have modules that let you keep your steering wheel controls. When your click on a radio there is a link button for all the other stuff you may need. They also seed you a data master sheet to help you remove your old unit and install the new one. This sheet(book) is specific to your car. [ james  Apr 06, 2017 ]
    you can but you don't have to [ Henry  Apr 05, 2017 ]
    No, it does not require any soldering. Everything just plugs in or uses smart connectors. Very easy to install if you order the correct kit. [ Roy  Apr 05, 2017 ]
    We do not offer Dual's line of car audio speakers. It's not required to use the same manufacturer for the stereo and speakers in your system. To make the most of the stereo's wattage, you'll want speakers with a high sensitivity rating.

    I do not know, I don't use an amp. [ CHARLES  Mar 01, 2016 ]
    I only use the SD card in mine. It stays in there permanently. When I pull the face from the player and later put it back on, it resumes play from where it stopped. [ Jerry  Feb 20, 2016 ]
    Yes [ VINAY KUMAR  Feb 20, 2016 ]
    To my knowledge no, however after owning it for about a year and a half I don't really notice it anymore. [ Lisa  Jan 12, 2016 ]
    This Dual XR4120 doesn't actually feature the ability to change the display or button colors; the display remains black/white and the buttons are illuminated with a blue backlight. However, in the owner's manual I see that it's recommended to "Press the RESET button upon initial installation or if abnormal operation occurs. The RESET button is located behind the front panel." If you're having issues with your display, you should try resting the head unit to see if that helps. If that doesn't fix it, you may want to try contacting Dual's support at 866-382-5476. [ Larry  Dec 21, 2015 ]  Staff
    No it does not display time. [ CHARLES  Nov 10, 2015 ]
    It will show the time when you hit the display button. Time shows for a few seconds then display goes back to what it showed before [ Erick  Nov 10, 2015 ]

    I know it doesn't play music, not sure about charging. It might play music from a flash drive, but I never tried it. [ CHARLES  Sep 16, 2015 ]
    The usb port is for storage devices. If you plug your iPhone 6 into a pc usb port and it shows a storage device with a standard file system and music arranged in folders, then yes. I use a 32GB usb flash drive with mine and it works just fine. [ John  Sep 16, 2015 ]
    Highly doubt it. [ VINAY KUMAR  Sep 01, 2015 ]
    NO its not water proof, but i never got mine went thought so, I cant be too sure. [ Bruno  Sep 01, 2015 ]

    yes Ive had my subs hooked up to this for over a year and its still jammin and sounding strong!! [ Sarah  Dec 19, 2015 ]
    You can hook the RCA cables to the back of it to plug into the subwoofers amp. [ Jonah  Jun 22, 2015 ]
    Large. [ William  May 03, 2015 ]
    Sdhc (physically large size) but it does not play sdxc. [ VINAY KUMAR  Apr 30, 2015 ]
    It uses a standard(large) SD card. Of course you can get an micro SD adapter though. :) [ Emmett  Apr 30, 2015 ]
    I'm most certain its large [ Nick  Apr 30, 2015 ]
    Those answers are not correct, the usb will charge your iphone only when the mode is on USB but here is the kicker...it will not stay on USB mode with just an ordinary usb charge cable connected. I used a kenwood USB+3.5mm jack which on one end it has usb and 3.5 mm jack. Both of those go into the front designated inputs on the receiver. The two wires are joined into 1 on the opposite end which looks like a iphone 4 charger but it passes data and audio. What does that mean to you...iphone charges and you get good sound [ Corey  Jul 23, 2015 ]
    I've plugged my phone into the usb port and it said it was charging, however if i remember right it died anyways. Could be a fault with the cord i was using or my radio in particular, but if you have it it's worth a shot. Just make sure you observe where your phones charge level is at. Also i have an android phone and don't know if that'll make a difference or not. Good luck to you. [ Joseph Allan  Mar 19, 2015 ]
    Nope, it doesn't charge, it only allows you to play MP3 songs that are on a usb jump drive! [ Evan  Mar 18, 2015 ]
    No I've had troubles getting apple products to connect with this radio and it won't even let it charge them [ Kai  Mar 18, 2015 ]
    No you can switch it right from the phone. The USB is only for charging from my understanding, the aux input is what you would you use for music. [ Sarah  Mar 04, 2015 ]

    Hi Claudio, I own the unit and it does have AM/FM radio. [ VINAY KUMAR  Jan 08, 2015 ]
    Yes! It comes in extremely clear, and has 9presets. [ Emmett  Jan 06, 2015 ]
    Yes. It is automatically set to FM1. It has I believe 3 FM slots, FM1,FM2, and FM3. It does AM but sure how many. There is no CD player as that is replaced with a SD card slot, which works with micro SDHC also. A USB port for USB audio and a external 35mm audio jack. [ Jeremy  Jan 06, 2015 ]
    Yes it does! It's awesome and works perfectly for everything I need! The only con is that the lights on it are a bit bright at night. [ Sarah  Jan 06, 2015 ]
    Yes [ adam  Jan 06, 2015 ]

    Hi Paul, I have the same unit and I pretty sure there is no way to dim the controls nor turn the units lights off without turning the power off. The player is fantastic for the price, but at night its makes my interior annoyingly blue. [ VINAY KUMAR  Nov 30, 2014 ]
    This was purchased and installed in my daughters car. She has not found a way to dim the display. Sorry [ John  Nov 29, 2014 ]
    No. We have a few of these installed in our work trucks,( Mack, peterbuilt, international) and driving early morning or late night sucks. It is a bright blue light with no way to dim it other than remove the faceplate or shut it of.. [ adam  Nov 29, 2014 ]

    I had a hard time with this and found answer on Kenwood site with other good tips included. [ MICHAEL  Aug 23, 2014 ]
    I have yet to set the clock..... [ ROBERT R  Aug 18, 2014 ]
    How do I set the clock on this Kenwood unit? [ Gary L  Aug 17, 2014 ]
    No, it's the worst flaw about this unit. [ Alex  Jul 22, 2014 ]
    Unfortunately not. I've gone through every setting, and it will only display for a moment. [ Emmett  Jul 20, 2014 ]
    Clock? I wasn't, aware it even had a clock. Maybe I need to read the manual again. [ William  Jul 20, 2014 ]
    You have to choose the option for adding the accessory [ Ashley  May 23, 2014 ]
    The jack fit right into the original and the wires were all color-coded properly. You will need butt-splices or wire-nuts or electrical tape to splice the wires. I had wire-nuts in the basement, so it was a breeze. [ Jerry  May 23, 2014 ]
    Yes it included everything when I bought the item. [ Landon  May 22, 2014 ]
    It really depends on your car. The box contains the radio, remote and wires. I found it best to enter in the make, model and year of my car on the home page first. Crutchfield showed which radios were compatible and had pop up windows that let me know what else I needed to make sure I had everything. My factory radio was a double din (the tall kind) and I needed a faceplate surround to be able to use the smaller, single din radio. I also needed a separate part to maintain the chime sounds for the door, lights, etc, and an antenna part. Overall I payed about $130, which was way lower than local places offered. [ Kristin  May 22, 2014 ]
    Yeah except I don't understand how to put the mount together. Like the two plastic sides I don't understand how to connect that to the frame. [ BAILEY  May 22, 2014 ]
    When you check out it should give you the option to add the parts needed to install it for $15 and those include everything you need [ Alisha  May 22, 2014 ]
    If ordering from crutch field, they ensure you get everything you need (no up sell). My suggestion is to use the online chat and have the sales advisor send you a link with all the necessary items. For example, if you say you want this item, the will include the wire harness (free or little charge), trim adaptor if needed (usually free), instructions for your vehicle (free), and answer any questions. By the way, for the price, this stereo is fantastic. [ VINAY KUMAR  May 22, 2014 ]
    This radio is bottom-of-the-line. This does not mean it is bad. It is great for an old car if you just want to connect your iPod to it. It requires a aux cord-no bluetooth function-no CD player. Make sure you by a quality aux cord from a box store rather than a cheap one. I did this and that cord broke in a day. [ Jacob Theron  Apr 29, 2014 ]
    You have to plug it in. [ William  Apr 28, 2014 ]
    No Bluetooth, so yes, aux to play music off your phone. The quality is better through aux than bluetooth anyway, so if you don't mind the cable it's a better option. [ Alex  Apr 28, 2014 ]
