Hear music your way
Multiple customisation options let you adapt the audio experience to your liking. And with the built-in 4 x 55W amplification, music sounds clear even at high volumes.
Powerful, clear amplification
Advanced signal processing from the 4 x 55W Dynamic Reality Amp 2 removes interference, so music sounds clear and detailed. Even when you crank up the volume.
Music that jumps from your dash
Sound waves are directional, so if your speakers are in your doors or under your dash, the audio may seem muddy or unclear. Dynamic Stage Organiser adjusts the signal, improving the stereo positioning so music sounds like it's coming from the dashboard.
Sculpt your sound
Tailor the sound to your personal preference with the 10-band graphic equaliser.
Expand your sound system
With three high-voltage pre-outs, you can easily expand your system with power amplifiers to drive speakers and subwoofers.
Clear, responsive touch screen
Everything you need is a quick tap away, thanks to the 16.3cm (6.4") full-colour touch screen.
Turn or push to control
The ergonomic rotary dial makes operation distraction-free. Turn it to control volume, or push the integrated button to launch sound control menus. Alternatively, hold the button to use voice commands.
3-camera input ready

Excellent unit, easy to use, top quality
Posted by Cambo. on 23rd Sep 2018
I purchased this unit to replace the factory head unit in my 2016 MQ Triton Exceed. Postage from Frankies was fast and fuss free. Used the Aerpro fitting kit and also a USB, rear camera and steering wheel control secondary harness, all stocked by Frankies. I have never done a head unit swap before, but the whole process took me about 3 hours and was easy. Excellent unit, great service and price, costing all up a little under $1000. Very happy.
