addition, the Supertuner III-D creates enhanced stereo during multi-path
interference, unlike conventional tuners that collapse to mono. Digital
processing reduces distortion, and improves Signal-to-Noise Ratio and stereo
separation. Advanced analog technology improves signal processing sensitivity.

good reception. There are 4 level of sensitivity for FM and two levels for AM.
The higher settings allow reception of only the strongest stations, while lower
settings let you receive progressively weaker stations.
Dimmer: To prevent the display from being too bright at night, the
display is automatically dimmed when the car's headlights are turned on. You can

CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the
AVH-P6000DVD 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 are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Continuous Power Output: 22 watts RMS x 4 channels (at
4 ohms, 50Hz-15kHz, 5% THD)
- Maximum Power Output:50 watts x 4 channels (or 50
watts x 2 channels at 4 ohms + 70 watts x 1 channel at 2 ohms for subwoofer)
MOSFET50 Internal Amplifier: This receiver is equipped with a 50 watts x 4 (peak)
MOSFET amplifier for low distortion, high power output. The amplifier is strong
enough to power small subwoofers to moderate volume levels in compact cars and
pickups. For higher volume levels from subwoofers, an optional amplifier may be
connected to the preamp outputs.

12kHz) to boost or cut within a range of -12dB to +12dB. The Q factor (slope of
the boost or cut) may be selected from one of the following four options: 2N
(narrow), 1N, 1W and 2W (wide). Selecting a narrow (steep) Q factor results in
frequencies around the center frequency to be affected less by the boost or cut
than they are with a wide Q factor. This feature is useful for taming frequency
response problems caused by the dimensions, materials and speaker locations of a
Adjustable Loudness: You can select "Low", "Mid" or "High" for different levels of loudness
