The receiver is also Bluetooth-ready, and its SD and USB inputs support 1080p playback. The AXV3D is also Dual Mirror ready for Apple and Android smartphones, allowing the head unit to mirror what\'s on the screen of a smartphone hooked up with a Dual Mirror cable connector. This feature is particularly useful for navigation and music streaming, where the user can view the smartphonesscreen significantly enlarged, and positioned safely within the drivers view.

Two types of the Dual Mirror cable will be available for purchase: one for Apple and one for Android smartphones. Three of the new head units feature large, 3\" QVGA TFT multi-line full-color LCDs (320 x 240) with attractive graphics. These displays show album art and artist/song information, and are available on the flagship AXD530 CD receiver (MSRP $139), the AXD430 CD receiver (MSRP $119) and the AXM230 mechless digital media receiver (MSRP $99).

Five models can control the Pandora Internet Radio app on the iPhone connected via USB input on the
front of the receiver. The head units will display artist, album, song information, station list, and will also
allow for thumbs up and down navigation and bookmarking for songs/artists. The Pandora control feature is available on the AXV3D multimedia unit, the AXM230, and the AXD430, AXD330 (MSRP $99) and

The first offerings of amplifiers and speakers under the Axxera brand include three amplifiers, 11
speakers, and one passive crossover.

The Amplifiers
The three amplifiers feature performance-matched output transistors for maximum power transfer and
black anodized extruded aluminum heat sinks for dissipating the heat. Direct-wire inputs eliminate the need for extra terminals while ensuring a more positive connection through increased wire contact. Also, thermal overload and low-impedance circuits provide protection for even the most demanding applications.

* The Mono Class-D Digital amp (AXA10D, MSRP $199) is rated at 350 Watts at 4-ohms RMS, 630
Watts at 2-ohms RMS and has a maximum rating of 800 Watts.
* The 4-channel Class-D Digital amp (AXA40D, MSRP $199) is rated at 100 Watts per channel x 4 at
4-ohms RMS, 150 Watts per channel x 4 at 2-ohms RMS, and 260 Watts per channel x 2 bridged
with a maximum power rating of 600 Watts.
* The 2-channel amp (AXA20, MSRP $99) is rated at 80 Watts per channel x 2 at 4-ohms RMS, 120

The 2 and 4 channel amps feature variable 12 dB/octave high-pass and low-pass frequency filters, while the Mono offers an adjustable 12 dB/octave low-pass filter as well as a variable sub sonic filter specifically for subwoofer use.

The Speakers
The new speaker lineup includes three Axis Series coax speakers, two tweeters, four midrange drivers and two subwoofers.
The Axxera AXiS Series speakers feature True In-Phase technology to provide the most realistic
reproduction of music in a car. The speakers unique acoustical design positions the tweeter directly behind the woofer. The tweeter is also horn-loaded through the woofer voice coil so that the two can work perfectly in phase at all angles. This unique alignment allows the speakers to produce the most natural, studio-like sound reproduction, regardless of where you sit in a vehicle.
The AXiS Series speakers also feature external 6dB high-pass filters with integrated tweeter protection, horn-loaded PEI compression tweeters, 4-ohm impedance, coated cloth surrounds, treated paper cones for softer, more accurate and natural sounding audio reproduction and 1 Polymer voice coils. The tweeters, crossover and midrange drivers have been developed for the custom specialist market and are focused on capitalizing on the high SPL market trend. The 1 phenolic bullet tweeter with its high 106dB efficiency is one of the cleanest and most efficient models on the market, while the 1 silk ring tweeter is a unique addition to mobile audio typically found in high-end home speakers. The midrange drivers offer 4-ohm models, as well as dual 4-ohm DVCs (patent pending), which allow unlimitedinstallation options. The 4th order tweeter crossover completes the line featuring a 24dB/octave roll-off at 4 kHz and built-in tweeter protection.
