External Microphone: During your wireless phone call, you
can talk into the head unit's included external microphone, and listen to the
other party through the vehicle's speaker system. The external microphone
provides better performance in noisy environments than the integrated microphone
found on the front-panel of many aftermarket or factory radios. The microphone
features a 13' cord that plugs into the back of the radio, and comes with an
adjustable visor-mount clip. The microphone measures 0.475" (diameter) x 1.445"
(depth). The unit is not equipped with an integrated
microphone. The external microphone must be installed for Bluetooth

Note: The Pioneer head unit requires an optional Bluetooth
firmware update (HW05-SW01.27.20)
to enable Bluetooth AVRCP control and metadata display for the iPhone 5 or
other Apple iOS6 device. If you do not own an iPhone 5 or iOS6 device, there
is no need to install this update.
24-Bit/96kHz DAC: For superb quality audio playback from
DVDs, CDs, and flash media, the Pioneer AVH-P4400BH is equipped with a
24-bit/96kHz digital-to-analog converter.
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.
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the
AVH-P4400BH 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)

graphic equalizer (40Hz, 80Hz, 200Hz, 400Hz, 1kHz, 2.5kHz, 8kHz, and10kHz).
Auto EQ (Optional): The auto-equalizer automatically measures
your car's interior acoustic characteristics, and then creates an auto-equalizer
curve base on that information. The Pioneer CD-MC20 Auto-EQ microphone
(130CDMC20, sold separately) is required to use this function. The Pioneer CD-MC20
Auto-EQ microphone plugs into the Pioneer multimedia receiver's 3.5mm mic
input (located behind the motorized touchcscreen). The Auto-EQ microphone should be placed in the center of your vehicle's driver
seat headrest facing forward for EQ measurement.
Sonic Center Control: Sound that is suited for the listening
position can easily be created with this function. You can adjust sound more toward
the listening position left (7) to right (7).

the low- and high-frequency ranges at low volume. You can set the Loudness to High,
Mid, Low, or Off.
Bass Boost: You can easily
boost the subwoofer bass level by using the Bass Boost function. The Bass Boost
feature allows you increase the subwoofer level from 0 to +6 (12dB).
Advanced Sound Retriever: The Advanced Sound Retriever automatically enhances
compressed audio and restores the original richness of the recording. When the
Retriever is on, the high frequency range is compensated to match the frequency
response curve to the original sound. There are two available levels of the
Advanced Sound Retriever effect.
Level Adjustment (SLA): This function lets
you adjust the volume level of each source to prevent radical changes in volume
when switching between sources. Settings are based on the volume level of the FM
tuner, which remains unchanged. Each source can be independently adjusted from
-4 dB to +4 dB.
4V/6ch Preamp Outputs: The Pioneer AVH-P4400BH is
equipped with three 4.0-volt preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The front and
rear speakers are fading with high-pass crossover filters, while the subwoofer
output is non-fading with a low-pass crossover filter.
- Front & Rear Preamp Outputs: If you do not want low
frequency sounds to play from the front or rear speaker preamp outputs (or
speaker outputs), you can turn on the 12dB/octave High Pass Filter. The HPF
has a selectable cutoff frequency (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz). Only
frequencies higher than those in the selected range are output through the
- Subwoofer Output: The unit has a pair of dedicated
non-fading RCA subwoofer outputs with a low-pass filter, phase adjustment,
and output level. When the subwoofer output is turned on, you can select the
frequency of the 18dB/octave low pass filter (50, 63, 80, 100, or 125 Hz),
select the subwoofer phase (normal/reverse), and the subwoofer gain (+6 to
Speaker Output: You
can choose to use the rear channel output (speaker and preout) for full-range
speaker or subwoofer. If you select "subwoofer", you can connect a 4-ohm
subwoofer directly to each rear speaker lead, or a 2-ohm subwoofer to one of the
rear speaker leads, without using an external
Telephone Mute/Attenuator: Sound from your system is muted or
attenuated automatically when a phone signal
is received when you have hardwired your mobile phone system to the mute wire
Dual AV Inputs: The Pioneer AVH-P4400BH has dual AV inputs
to connect two external audio/video sources. The head unit has a 3.5mm
minijack AV input for connecting a portable
audio/video device. There is also a rear-panel composite video/stereo RCA AV
input for connecting a video component such as a
mobile TV tuner or game console.
Note: The rear-panel 3.5mm minijack input also serves as the A/V
input for your USB-connected iPod/iPhone (using the proprietary Pioneer cable).
Video Output: The AVH-P4400BH features a rear-panel
composite video output that allows you to connect an external display to the
unit. You can play back the same video source which is being played on the head
unit. You can select the unit to output a 16:9, Letter-Box or Pan-Scan aspect
ratio to match your external display's screen size. You cannot play DivX files on the unit's monitor
and a connected external monitor at the same time.
Rear View Camera: The AVH-P4400BH is equipped with a composite
video Rear View Camera input. The unit features a function that automatically switches
to the rear camera image (Rear View Camera input jack) when an optional rear camera
sold separately) is installed. When the transmission is in reverse, the screen
automatically switches to the rear view camera (the violet/white wire in the
AVH-P4400BH's harness must be connected to the vehicle's reverse lamp circuit
for automatic video switching). Automatic video switching takes approximately
1.7 seconds. Pioneer recommends using a camera with a mirror image (reversed)
output. Audio from your music source will continue
playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.
Navigation Ready: The Pioneer AVH-P4400BH allows you to
connect the Pioneer AVIC-U250 add-on navigation unit (sold separately) through
its RGB Input. This versatile hideaway unit allows you to switch to navigation
mode with the touch of a button. Get to your destination by inputting an address
or search through the POI library while enjoying whatever source is currently
Wireless Remote Control: The Pioneer AVH-P4400BH includes an
IR remote control (CXE5116) for wireless operation of the multimedia head unit
and your connected devices.
Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features
an OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you
keep your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with
steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult
Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.
