Note: Apple iPod/iPhone software updates may change
functionality results. If you download a newer software version, you may
need to reset the head unit and your iPod/iPhone to regain functionality. If
this doesn't work, you may need to wait until a newer software update is
Drive Change Mode (for Android/BlackBerry): The JVC
KW-NT800HDT's USB port supports playback from Android & BlackBerry smartphones (via
USB mass storage mode). JVC's Drive Change Mode lets you connect your Android or
BlackBerry smartphone (that uses an external memory card) directly to the head
unit, via USB. Drive Change Mode will let you switch between your Android or
BlackBerry smartphone's internal and external memory (such as microSD Card), so
you can listen to music stored on either memory. You'll continue to be able
control basic playback functions; such as folder/file search, play/pause, and
skip next/previous; regardless of memory type.
24 Bit D/A Converter: The JVC KW-NT800HDT utilizes a 24-bit
digital to analog converter for superior sound quality.
MOSFET Amplifier: The KW-NT800HDT 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
CEA2006 Compliant: The power specifications for the KW-NT800HDT
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 for the KW-NT800HDT are as follows:
- CEA2006 Specs: 20 watts RMS x 4 channels (at 4 ohms,
20Hz-20kHz, 1% THD-N)
- Maximum Power Output: 50 watts x 4 channels (200 total
Amplifier Gain Control:
When you are using the KW-NT800HDT with factory speakers (or those rated to less
than 50 watts peak), the Amplifier Gain Control can limit the amount of power
being sent to those speakers. When the Amp Gain Control is set to low, the
volume control ranges from 0 (minimum) to 30 (maximum). When using speakers
rated higher than 50 watts peak, you can set the Amp Gain Control to high, and
the volume control will range from 0 to 50. The internal amp can also be turned
off when all the speakers are powered by outboard amplifiers.
Volume Adjust: The input level of each source (other than
FM) is adjustable relative to the FM radio volume, so there isn't a significant
volume difference when changing sources. Each source is individually adjustable
from -5 to +5.
2.5V/6CH Preamp Output: The KW-NT800HDT is equipped with three
pair of 2.5V preamp outputs (Front/Rear/Subwoofer). The front & rear preamp
outputs offer balance/fade control and are designed to hookup to a full-range
4-channel amplifier. The subwoofer preamp output is non-fading and designed to
hookup to a mono-block subwoofer amplifier. You can adjust the head unit's
subwoofer level between -50 and +10.
Digital Crossover Network: The KW-NT800HDT features a
variable high pass crossover for the front & rear speakers, as well as a low
pass crossover for the subwoofer.
- Front: Frequency (Through,
30/40/50/60/70/80/90/100/120/150/180/220/250Hz), Slope (-6/-12/-18/-24dB),
Gain (-8 to 0dB), Tweeter Level (-8 to 0dB)
- Rear: Frequency (Through,
30/40/50/60/70/80/90/100/120/150/180/220/250Hz), Slope (-6/-12/-18/-24dB),
Gain (-8 to 0dB)
- Subwoofer: Frequency (Through,
30/40/50/60/70/80/90/100/120/150/180/220/250Hz), Slope (-6/-12/-18/-24dB),
Gain (-8 to 0dB), Phase (Normal/Reverse)
Equalizer: The JVC KW-NT800HDT provides both a Preset EQ for quick musical
adjustment and 13-Band EQ for more advanced customization.
- Preset EQ: Choose from Flat, Dynamic, Bass Boost, Natural, Vocal
Boost, Vibrant, or User 1/2/3/4.
- 13-Band EQ: Each user mode lets you adjust the head unit's
13-band equalizer; 62.5Hz, 100Hz, 250Hz, 400Hz, 630Hz, 1kHz, 1.6kHz, 2.5kHz,
4kHz, 6.3kHz, 10kHz, and 16kHz (+/- 9dB).
Source Link EQ: This feature allows you to store EQ settings
for each source (Disc, AM/FM, AV-IN, USB, iPod, Bluetooth, iHeart Radio, and Pandora).
DSP Control: The JVC KW-NT800HDT's Digital Sound Processor
(DSP) offers various vehicle, audio, and driver settings to improve the sound
in your car, truck, SUV, or van.

adjustments dedicated to enhance the sound quality of your compressed
- Audio Contrast: sharpens vague sound to make the audio more realistic;
effective for compressed music data
- D.T. Expander (Digital Track Expander): reproduces
the natural sound of digital audio sources by restoring data that was
lost and waves that were changed during audio compression to their
original states; effective for compressed music data
- Driver Sound Improvements: The KW-NT800HDT features various audio
settings to help improve your driving and audio experience.
- Start Up Sound Level:

off; you can then manually turn it up back to the previous level
- Road Noise Compensation:
increases the volume of little sound that can be easily washed out by
road noise and boosts the bass
- Adaptive Volume: automatically increases the volume
level (both for Navigation and audio/video) as the car speeds up; you
must connect the unit's Speed Signal wire (pink/gray) to your vehicle's
speed sensor wire
- Reverse Audio Reduction: attenuates the receiver's
AV sound when you shift your vehicle into reverse, so you can
concentrate more on backing up your vehicle safely
Dynamic Range Compression: The dynamic range can be adjusted
by selecting either Normal, Wide or Dialog. Dialog makes the total sound volume
become larger as compared with Wide and Normal, allowing you to listen to the
