Product Information

Apple CarPlay

iPhone users rejoice! The Kenwood DDX6903S allows you to plug in your iPhone 5 or newer smartphone to gain control over popular music applications and communication methods. Since CarPlay is Apple-designed software, it makes for a seamless connection to one of the world’s most popular smartphones.

  • Apple CarPlay: plug in your iPhone 5 or newer for a seamless connection to Apple maps for navigation, Siri voice control, text messaging, hands-free calling, and the control over a host of music-streaming apps like Pandora, Spotify, etc. Learn more about Apple CarPlay at

The Wonderful World of Bluetooth

Bluetooth quickly became a convenience that many of us would be hard-pressed to live without. Whether it’s the hands-free calling aspect of this wonderful wireless technology or its audio streaming capability, Bluetooth is great for not only safety reasons, but also for not having wires dangling all over the dashboard.

HD Radio Built-in

If you enjoy listening to your local radio stations, you should really check out the HD Radio feature that is built into the DDX6903S. With this feature, you get better sound quality from your radio stations (assuming they broadcast in HD) because it’s all digital. You even get access to more stations that you didn’t even know existed! Best of all, it’s free and it uses your existing AM/FM antenna. Learn more about your local participating radio stations at

Your Music, Your Way

The DDX6903S is a very versatile unit in regards to the types of connections it has for the different formats of music to which you listen. The USB inputs can anything from your iPod’s music to FLAC audio files on a thumb drive. You also have the option to connect a Bluetooth-enabled device and stream your music to the touchscreen. Lastly, there is an auxiliary input that you could connect a MP3 player to for those players that don’t have Bluetooth built-in. There is no such thing as too many options!

Get the Best-possible Sound

The DDX6903S offers you a host of sound tuning features that exceeds the basic bass and treble controls that your factory radio made available to you. A 13-band EQ gives you the ability to tweak the sound like you’ve never been able to do before and, best of all, you’re able to save different tunings that are source-specific. Kenwood realized that your iPod music, CDs, AM/FM tuner, etc. all sound different and while you might find the perfect sound for your CDs, that sound might not jive well with your iPod’s music, so why not save the best-sounding EQs for each source independently from one another?

Be Aware

Dual camera inputs (one for the rear of the vehicle and the other for the front) allow you better visibility of what’s going on around you. The backup camera input also populates adjustable guidelines so you know how far away your vehicle is to some obstruction. Cameras are sold separately.

Don’t Lose the Conveniences That You Love

With the use of some adapters, you can keep treasured things (like steering wheel audio controls, vehicle warning chimes, etc.) alive and working when you replace your existing factory-installed radio. Many newer vehicles feature these conveniences and we grow accustomed to having them work. With adapters from PAC Audio and iDatalink, you’re able to keep your car or truck working just like it did before you installed your new radio.
