The DEH-P7000BT, manufactured by Pioneer Electronics, is a single-DIN size aftermarket automobile stereo. The DEH-P7000BT features Bluetooth capability, iPod connectivity via a USB plug, three-band equaliser with six preset tone settings and a built-in amplifier. Further expansion of your vehicle's sound system, whether adding additional amplifiers or subwoofers, can be accomplished through the DEH-P7000BT multiple RCA pre-outs. Connecting the device to your vehicle is done using a vehicle-specific wiring harness that eliminates the need to identify each individual wire.
