Double DIN CD Receiver with Front USB/AUX Input - JVC KW-R520

MP3 CD AM / FM Radio USB Aux input Stalk Control 1 Preout Multi Colour display
pastingSo this year you have Andriod via the USB, this means if you have an Andriod based phone you will be able to access all your music from the JVC KWR 520 similar to that when using a iPhone.

12 Band Equalier with 3 Brand Parameteric Pro EQ- so what does this mean? Simple, rather than just the simple Bass and Treble controls you can now tune the sound precisely to your musical ear and aswell as compensating for the fact most cars sound different, so you will get a great sound regardless of your car or speakers.

Low Pass filter, this is a great feature when you need to add bass. The sound improvement you will make by adding bass to any car audio system simply transforms it. Think how a movie sounds!

A great unit at a great price.

Fitting JVC R520 Mazda MX-5 nc
Graham on 29/05/2019 3 star rating

Not a straight forward to fit as you would believe, had to Google how to fit stereo to brackets instructions not clear! Had to cut wires to make steering wheel controls work, needs better more clear instructions to make the fit easier, had to work out the distance for brackets that don't tell you how and which way to fit brackets
