Rotary volume control

Clarion’s electronic rotary volume control is ergonomically designed for ease of use. Rather than utilising a resistor-type potentiometer volume control, which can cause unwanted noise, Clarion’s electronic potentiometer volume control provides precise control and clarity.

Front panel auxiliary input

Both the DB288RUSB and the DB188RMP / DB189RMP / DB189RGMP feature a front panel auxiliary input. Plug in your portable music player and enjoy music the way it was meant to be heard.

MP3, WMA and ID3-TAG

Both models handle MP3 and WMA digital audio files, and both support ID3-TAG coding for display of title info. Because both MP3 and WMA files are compressed, each CD-R or CD-RW can hold up to 12 hours of music with CD sound quality.

Magna Bass EX

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 wellbalanced dynamic bass at any level.

Ready for OEM remote controller

More and more cars are sold with original car radios that can be operated from convenient controls on the steering wheel. Both the DB288RUSB and the DB188RMP/ B189RMP/ B189RGMP feature an interface input that allows connection of the steering wheel controls in your car. This way, you get the best of both worlds: continued use of the handy steering wheel controls and a top-performing Clarion system in your car.
