The DEH-X6500DAB's built-in amplifiers produce pristine sound delivered at 4 x 50W of pure, proven MOSFET power. If that isn't enough, you can always use the 2 RCA pre-outs to hook up another stereo component, like an extra amp for the front and rear speakers or a subwoofer, for example.

The built-in DAB+ tuner with Timeshift function gives you access to thousands of radio stations. You can also play tunes from traditional CDs and CD-R/RW, including MP3, WMA and WAV files.

If your music is stored on a portable device, like an iPod, Android smartphone or USB stick, the front panel's illuminated USB and Aux-in gives them a direct connection to your car speakers via the DEH-X6500DAB's sound system.

The multi-colour RGB display can be customised to match the lighting in your car or to add effects using the MIXTRAX EZ feature. MIXTRAX EZ creates non-stop, club-style mixes from your music, illuminating your dashboard with colour effects based on the beat and mood of each song.
