CD Changer Controls
Face: The CQ-C5210U features a motorized slide-down
faceplate. The face automatically tilts to allow you to
insert or eject a CD. The face angle can be adjusted to one of three settings
(15°, 25° or 35°),
or remain upright, whichever angle gives you the best visibility. When the face is removed, a red LED blinks on the front panel of the radio. The
security indicator can be deactivated. Note: The bottom of the faceplate
protrudes approximately 1-1/2" when a CD is being loaded or ejected.
Display Patterns: The
source information is displayed as white alphanumeric characters along the top
half of the display window. You can select one of 6 spectrum analyzer patterns
for the bottom portion of the display or no pattern. The display has a blue LED
backlight with 3 brightness settings. If desired, you can turn off the display
and all button illumination, leaving only the source button illuminated.
Day and Night
Faceplate: This unit also features the Day and Night faceplate. During the day,
the face is dark gray with a silvery mirror-like finish on the ends. At night,
or whenever it's dark in the vehicle, the outside edges of the faceplate and a
"halo" around the volume knob illuminate in blue.
SQ7: The CQ-C5210U features a SQ7 "Sound Quality" 7-band equalizer with 6 EQ
presets. The presets include Rock, Pop, Vocal, Jazz, Club and Flat. You can

1kHz, 3kHz, 6kHz and 16kHz.
Subwoofer Output: In addition
to front and rear preamp outputs, the CQ-C5210U has a non-fading, two-channel
subwoofer output. You can adjust the volume of the subwoofer output from -6dB

selectable 80Hz, 120Hz or 160Hz cutoff frequency.

with a selectable crossover frequency (90Hz, 135Hz, 180Hz, 225Hz or Off).

allows you to choose between mute (volume at 0) or attenuate (volume decreased
by 10 steps) when you want to decrease the volume instantly.
