Flexible connectivity, ample compatibility, custom selectability

Built-in Bluetooth® hands-free

With a Bluetooth compatible head unit, you can wirelessly connect your Bluetooth capable mobile phone to listen to calls through your car’s audio system. HFP/OPP/A2DP/AVRCP protocols are supported.

Compatible with DVD, DVD-Video and DivX®

Since the built-in DVD drive offers playback of DVD-Video format DVDs, you can play and enjoy a wide variety of store bought and home made DVDs. And by offering support of DivX enriched video files, it lets you enjoy the higher quality and superior compression afforded by DivX technology. Now DivX encoded files burned using a PC can be viewed in your car, just like you’d be able to at home.

USB direct connection and control of even the newest iPods

By connecting an iPod to the source unit’s USB input using the USB cable provided with your iPod, it will be possible to control the iPod. The same USB terminal can also be used to connect a USB memory device with digital music files stored on it.

* To connect an iPod, please use the USB cable included with your iPod.

* For video playback, optional CCA723 cable required.

* Please see our website for iPod models that can be connected.

* iPod ABC Search is not available.

AUX input with sensitivity adjustment

The auxiliary input allows you to listen to external sound sources through the car’s audio system. And since it allows the sensitivity level to be changed, you can adjust it to the level that is optimal for the input device you are using. This minimises the need to adjust the volume level every time you switch to a new sound source.

4 preset wallpaper designs

Background patterns of the audio & video sources can be customised to suit your taste or your car’s colour scheme.

2-Zone entertainment

Clarion’s 2-Zone entertainment system divides the incar spatial environment into discrete front and rear zones. As a result, it is possible for the front and rear seat passengers to enjoy different entertainment sources without interfering with each other.

Powerful set of audio technologies designed to let you design your own sound

Digital Z-Enhancer to customise your sound

This function employs digital signal processing with three preset equalisation curves each adjustable to LOW, MID and HIGH. You can choose from 9 custom EQ curves tailored to specific speaker types.

Built-in HPF/LPF to match your speakers

The internal High Pass and Low Pass Filters allow you to set the frequency range of the audio signal that’s output to each channel to best match the acoustic characteristics of the front and rear speakers and the subwoofer.

3-band parametric equaliser

The entire sound spectrum is separated into high, medium and low ranges. The level of each can be adjusted separately. Customise the sound to suit your taste and your car.

Non-fader subwoofer control

The dedicated non-fader subwoofer output has a level control to give you more control over your system’s bass performance. This even includes a low-pass crossover which, when selected, turns the rear channel RCA line level outputs into dedicated subwoofer outputs.

MAGNA BASS EX for dynamic bass enhancement

Now, Clarion’s new MAGNA BASS EX boosts the bass by nearly 10 dB at even lower frequencies around 50 Hz -lower than that of ordinary loudness circuits at around 100 Hz, to provide extra low-frequency impact. It even automatically compensates the volume level to ensure well-balanced dynamic bass at any level.

System that’s able to keep growing along with your changing needs

6-channel audio pre-out

Equipped with 6 channel outputs for Front 2 channels + Rear 2 channels + Subwoofer 2 channels and crossover settings for high sound quality reproduction.

Rear vision camera via RCA input helps confirm what’s behind you

The RCA input enables you to smoothly connect a rear vision camera to display the area behind your vehicle on your onboard TV monitor. The increased view from the driver’s seat makes driving safer in vehicles in which it is hard to see out the back, or at times when seeing what’s behind you is difficult.
