What other head units have volume adjust?


Recommended Posts

So, I have a JVC KD-AHD69 head unit in my F-150 and was pleasantly surprised with the quality for what I payed but was kinda looking into trying another brand (Pioneer or Alpine) for my Jeep. Anyway the really cool thing about the JVC deck I have is that it has a Volume Adjust setting. The JVC has 50 volume levels so lets say it distorts at 42 for example. You then can go into the Volume Adjust and set it to -8 and then you can crank it all the way up to 50 and have no distortion. You could also increase the Volume Adjust if it is not already distorting at 50, which probably wont be the case. It's not a huge deal nor is it an advertised point just a nice bonus feature so you don't have to worry about going over a certain number.

So I was wondering if anyone new if other decks had that feature??? Again I didn't really see it advertised anywhere on mine when I got it from Crutchfield and they give pretty much every spec and feature they find on a product so it will probably be one of those things you have to have the head unit to know...

Thanks

I remember my JVC doing that. When you go in and adjust what the RCA preouts go to, like rear or sub, you can also select "high power" or "low power". If you set that on low power, it sets the max volume at 30. Set it at high power and you can go all the way up to 50. It was a pretty nifty unit, never gave me any problems.

jvcs and kenwoods have it, i THINK thats it, also, why would you wanna do that? if you think about it...you have 50 "volume levels" if you turn the volume level itself down to -1 and your h/u clips at say 48, your headunit will not start to clip at 49, itll start to clip past 50, which you cant achieve, honestly you rarely see h/u's clipping at less then 5 or 6 less then max, unless you have all your settings maxed the fuck out, that jvc ( if its the one im thinking of, the DD with the removable face, and the MOTO X) is a really nice unit

edit: the guy above me is spot on....its the same thing technicly, just a bit diffrent as he said, it doesnt control the radio volume, only cd/mp3/ipod

i would set mine to go to "ee-leven". lol

Lol thats the only downside this particular deck has a + or - ten but it doesn't distort early at least to my ears and I am picky. (needs to pick up a DD-1 one of these days)

all my eclipse cd players have svc, source volume control. so you can even out the volume of the cd and aux to the radio, kinda the same idea, but it doesnt adjust the radio

This one does that too but it also allows you to compensate the over all volume level.

It's a single din one.

It will allow your last clear volume level to be to max level so 51 would be clipping which you can't reach. So instead of stopping at 49, 48, or whatever it may be you can just rip the nob all the way up and not have to meticulously select you top volume and some of those knobs can be touchy. So when your driving you don't have to worry as well, you know you have clean power no matter where your set at. All it is, is a convenience thing.
