Android Direct Connect via USB: The Pioneer DEH-X5800HD
enables playback of stored music and music apps on select Android devices
through its front-panel USB port. There are two types of modes to choose from
based on your type of Android smartphone and what content you want to listen to.
- AOA 2.0 (Stored Music & Music Apps): The Pioneer
DEH-X5800HD supports Android Open Accessory 2.0 (AOA 2.0), which lets you
connect your Android smartphone (OS 4.1+) to the DEH-X5800HD's front-panel
USB port and listen to stored music and select music apps from your Android
device through the Pioneer receiver. You'll be able to control basic
playback functions such as Play/Pause and Previous/Next Track. Other
advanced music navigation will still be done from your Android smartphone's

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.
