Detachable Face: The unit features a single front loading CD
face that detaches from the chassis to deter theft. The CD player comes supplied
with a plastic face-case to protect the detachable face when you have it off the
Separated Variable-Color LCD and Key Illumination: The JVC KD-AHD69
features 29 color presets for the LCD display and button illumination.
Additionally, there is a user preset, allowing you to individually adjust the
intensity of Red, Green, and Blue from 0 to 31; resulting in approximately
30,000 custom color options. The chosen color can be applied to the display
panel and the backlighting for all the buttons except Eject, EQ, and display;
those remain red. You can choose to use the same color for the LCD display and
button illumination or use a separate color for each one. You can also select a
different color for daytime and nighttime in regards to the unit's LCD display
and button illumination.
Display/Button Illumination Dimmer: The display/button
illumination dimmer can be set to Off (normal brightness at all times), On
(display/button illumination is always dimmed), or Auto (display dims when 12
volts is applied to the illumination lead).
Clock Display: While playing a CD, you can switch between
the clock display and the CD elapsed time display (the track number always
appears). While listening to the radio you can switch between the clock display
and the station frequency display. When you press the Display button during
power off, the unit will turn on, display the clock for 5 seconds, then shut
off. This can be done with the ignition on or off.
24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KD-AHD69 utilizes a 24-bit
digital to analog converter for superior CD sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The KD-AHD69 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
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the KD-AHD69
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 KD-AHD69 are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 20 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total
7-Band Intelligent EQ (i-EQ): The JVC KD-AHD69 is equipped with a 7-Band Intelligent EQ (i-EQ) and 6 user
presets (Flat, Natural, Dynamic, Bass Boost, Vocal Boost, and User).
The User EQ preset allows you to manually adjust the headunit's 7-band
parametric EQ(Sub Bass, Bass, Mid Bass, Mid, Mid High, High, and Ultra High) from +/-10dB.
Amplifier Gain Control: When you are using the KD-AHD69 with factory
speakers (or those rated to less than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit
the amount of power being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to Low,
the volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers rated higher
than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to High, and the volume control will
range from 0 to 50. When all speakers in the system are powered by an external amplifier,
the internal amplifier can be turned off.
Subwoofer Output: In addition to the 5.0 volt front preamp
outputs, this unit has a set of 5.0 volt subwoofer preamp outputs. The subwoofer
output is non-fading and has independent level control, adjustable from 00 to
08, and an adjustable low-pass crossover. You can select a cutoff frequency of
Low (72 Hz), Mid (111 Hz), or High (157 Hz).
Note: This headunit is not equipped with a a rear-channel preamp
Source Volume: The input level of each source (other than
FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a signific
