External Device Connection
Detachable Face Security:
This unit features Detachable Face Security. If the front
panel is not detached from the head unit within five seconds of turning off the
ignition, a warning tone will sound. The warning tone can be turned off in the
menu, if desired. Face-fixing holders and screws are supplied for
making the face non-detachable, if desired.
Blue OEL Display: The DEH-P710BT features a blue Organic
Electroluminescent (OEL) dot matrix display, with a resolution of 192 x 48
pixels. You can easily view file and folder lists from your MP3, WMA, and CD
Text-encoded discs, radio presets, or data from your iPod, XM Radio, and Sirius.
The brightness of the display can be set between 0 and 15.
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 turn the dimmer function On or Off. The
orange/white illumination wire must be connected to the vehicle's headlight
circuit in order for this feature to work.
Ever Scroll: When the Ever Scroll feature is set to On, recorded
text information scrolls continuously on the display. It will auto-scroll up to 64
characters. Set this feature to Off if you prefer the information to scroll only
Illumination/Clock Display: When the Clock
Display has been turned on, pressing and holding the Source button turns off
audio output, but the clock display remains on. When
the Clock Display has been turned off, pressing and holding the source button
turns the unit off completely. Even if you have turned the radio completely off
you can view the clock display be pressing the clock button. The clock will then
remain On until you turn it Off. When the unit is On you can select between
the clock display or the audio track/tuner display. When the unit is off but the
ignition is on, the button illumination will light up when the vehicle's
headlights are turned on.
The DEH-P710BT 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.
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the
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 DEH-P710BT are as
- CEA2006 Specs: 14 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms, 20Hz-20kHz,
- 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)
Sound Retriever: The Sound Retriever automatically enhances compressed
audio and restores the original richness of the recording. There are two
available levels of the Sound Retriever effect.
EEQ (Easy EQ):
The DEH-P710BT is equipped with a 7-band graphic EQ with 7 preset EQ
settings. You can boost or cut each frequency band by +/- 12dB at 2dB intervals.
Features of the Easy EQ include:
- Center Frequencies: 50Hz, 125Hz, 315Hz, 800Hz, 2kHz, 5kHz, and 12.5kHz
- Preset EEQ Settings:
Powerful, Super Bass, Vocal, Natural, Custom1, Custom2, and EQ Flat
Selectable Loudness Levels:
Loudness compensates for deficiencies in the low and high frequencies at low
volumes. You can choose from three levels of
- Low: +3.5dB (100Hz), +3dB
- Mid: +10dB (100Hz), +6.5dB
- High: +11dB (100Hz), +11dB
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
Switchable Rear Channel/Subwoofer Output: The rear speaker
outputs can be set to provide full range output with full fading capability, or
they can be set to provide non-fading subwoofer (low-pass) output. When the rear
speaker outputs are set to subwoofer mode, the rear preamp outputs also switch
from full range to subwoofer outputs. When set for subwoofer operation, you can
connect the rear speaker leads directly to two small 4-ohm passive subwoofers or
a dual voice coil sub with 4-ohm voice coils. If you prefer to use a single 2-ohm
subwoofer, you can connect the woofer to one set of speaker leads, leaving the
other set of rear leads disconnected. The maximum output provided when a 2-ohm
load is connected to one set of leads is 70 watts.
High Pass Filter: If you do not
want low frequency sounds to play from the front or rear 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 speakers.
Bass Boost: The Bass Boost
function raises the level of sounds lower than 100Hz. You can select a desired
level of bass boost between 0 and 6 (+12dB to 0dB).
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
-4dB to +4dB.
Function Confirmation Tones:
The receiver emits an audible beep tone each time a button is pressed. These
function confirmation tones cannot be turned off.
IIID AM/FM Tuner: The Supertuner IIID features
Feed Forward Control, which avoids multi-path interference. This pre-detection
of interference enables quick filter control and results in less distortion. In
addition, the Supertuner IIID 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.
BSM (Best Stations Memory): The BSM (Best Stations Memory) function
lets you automatically store the six strongest stations under preset buttons 1-6
of the currently tuned band. The tuner has 3 FM banks and 1 AM bank. You can
store 6 presets for each bank giving you a total of 18 FM presets and 6 AM
Local Tuning: Local seek tuning
lets you tune in only those radio stations with sufficiently strong signals for
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.
Compressed Audio Playback:
This unit can play MP3/WMA/AAC/WAV files recorded on CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs
in ISO9660 Level 1/Level 2, Joliet, and Romeo formats. MP3 files with a bit rate
from 8-320 kbps, WMA files with a bit rate from 5-320 kbps, and AAC
files with a variable bit rate from 8-320 kbps are supported. The unit is
compatible with ID3 Tags and will display artist, folder, file, and album name,
plus comments. Up to 8 directories, 99 folders and 999 files per disc are
recognized by this unit.
List Button: The List button on the front panel allows you to view the
track title list, folder list, file list, preset channel list, or disc title
list, depending upon the source. Once the List button is pressed, you can turn
the multi-control knob to view each item on the list. To select the highlighted
item, you can press the multi-control. This allows you to quickly make
selections from most any source.
Disc Naming: You can use the disc title input feature to store
up to 48 CD titles in the unit's memory. Each title can be up to 10 characters long.
When a Pioneer multi-disc CD player is connected, you can store up to 100 CD titles.
Bluetooth Solution: The DEH-P710BT is equipped with
Pioneer's new Built-in Bluetooth Solution. You can make and receive phone calls
wirelessly through the receiver. When you're not utilizing hands-free calling,
you can use Bluetooth Wireless Technology to control and listen to a Bluetooth
Voice Recognition: You can use voice recognition to input
phone numbers and names into the phonebook, and make calls. You can also access
a help menu to assist you with the proper voice commands.
Microphone: During your wireless phone call, you can talk
into the head unit's included microphone, and listen to the other party through
the vehicle's speaker system. The microphone features a 13' cord that plugs into
the back of the radio, and comes with an adjustable visor-mount clip.
