7" Widescreen TFT Display:
The Eclipse AVN6610 is equipped with a 7" Widescreen TFT low-reflection
display with touch screen control. The LCD panel has 280,800 pixels (400 x 234
x 3). The motorized screen slides down and out to allow you access to the disc
slots. You can also set the display panel to one of 7 angles between 0° and
approximately 30° for best viewing.
Dual Disc Slots: Behind the
motorized LCD panel, the AVN6610 has two disc slots: one for DVDs, CDs and MP3/WMA discs,
and another for the supplied Eclipse Navigation disc. You can
independently load and eject discs from each slot, allowing you to listen to a
CD or MP3/WMA disc while using the DVD navigation function.
Digital Signal Processor: The
unit's DSP offers three sound adjustments for total audio control:
- Soundfield Control: The
DSP's Soundfield Control features 5 distinctive acoustic environments to
match your listening tastes: Concert, Live, Cathedral, Club, and Theater.
- 7-Band Parametric EQ: Using the
touch screen controls, you can adjust the following EQ bands +/-10dB in 2dB
steps: Band 1: (63Hz, 80Hz, or 100Hz), Band 2: (125Hz, 160Hz, or 200Hz),
Band 3: (250Hz, 315Hz, 400Hz, or 500Hz), Band 4: (630Hz, 800Hz, 1kHz, or
1.25kHz), Band 5: (1.6kHz, 2kHz, 2.5kHz, or 3.15kHz), Band 6: (4kHz, 5kHz,
6.3kHz, or 8kHz), and Band 7: (10kHz, 12.5kHz, or 16kHz). You can select the
Q Factor from Q1 (Wide), Q2 (Normal) or Q3 (Narrow). In
addition, the unit's EQ has five memory presets for easy recall. You can also
set the EQ to Flat.
- Listening Position: The
digitally time-aligned listening position settings approximate the ideal
position of being equidistant from the speakers. You can select one of four
listening positions: front left, front right, all front, or all rear. You
can also set the balance and fade volume controls using the touch controls.
Circle Surround II: The AVN6610's offers
SRS Circle Surround II (CS II), an advanced surround sound decoder that enables
multi-channel surround sound output using surround encoded, stereo, or mono
material. CS II features two patented SRS post processing technologies; Dialog
Clarity for clearer vocal intelligibility and TruBass for improved low frequency
response. CS II works well in the car environment because it is extremely
forgiving regarding speaker placement and listener location.
SRS TruBass is a signal processing technology for bass enhancement. It uses
psychoacoustics and speaker driver physics to increase the perception of bass
while decreasing demands on the driver.
Harmonizer: When playing MP3 or WMA files,
the Harmonizer helps recreate the depth lost when the files were compressed.
Setting options are high, low, and off.
5-Volt, Low-Impedance Preamp Outputs: To
assure a clean, strong signal to connected amplifiers, the AVN6600 has 3 pairs
of 5-volt preamp outputs with an impedance of 55Ω. High-voltage, low-impedance
outputs give you a very high signal-to-noise ratio and a wide dynamic range.
A/V Inputs/Outputs: The AVN6610
is equipped with one audio/video input with composite video and stereo RCA audio
jacks for connecting a VCR or game console. Video from the A/V input can only be
viewed when the vehicle is stopped and the parking brake engaged. The unit also
has a composite video output for connecting an external monitor.
Dual Play: When an optional
rear seat monitor is used, you can provide rear seat entertainment separate from
what's being heard or viewed by the front seat passengers. When Dual Play is
turned on, you can select Disc (DVD, CD, MP3/WMA) or TV (Live TV broadcasts
using an optional TV tuner). Rear seat audio is played through the monitor's
built-in speaker or optional headphones. Dual Play combinations can be as

Network. ESN works by registering a particular music CD as a "key" which
unlocks the security. If the power supply is disconnected, then reconnected, the
"key" CD must be inserted before the navigation or audio functions will
work. You can turn the security on or off, or change the "key" CD as
Rear View Camera Ready: The AVN6610 has a
dedicated rear port for plugging in the optional BEC106 (item number 099BEC106)

menu, you can select Auto or Manual operation of the rear view camera. When Auto
is selected, and the reverse gear detection wire is properly connected, the
image from the rear camera will appear on the LCD panel whenever you put the
vehicle in reverse. When Manual is selected, you can view the rear view camera
image by simply switching to the Rear View Camera source.
In addition to the front and rear preamp outputs, there is a dedicated subwoofer
preamp out. The sub output has several adjustable parameters:
stereo or mono
-6 to +6 (relative to the main volume)
normal or reverse
