Product Information

More Power, Less Glare

With body-shaking power to rival an external amp, you’ll feel every beat and bass line as you cruise along. A responsive 6.95” (17.6 cm) (diag.) capacitive touchscreen, now with anti-glare feature, gives you seamless control throughout your journey.

Use Your Phone

Connect your compatible Apple or Android smartphone to get directions, stream music and more.

High-Power Amp

The four-channel amp gives you a level of power previously only available from external amps, built in.

Anti-Glare Capacitive Touchscreen

The anti-glare 6.95” (17.6 cm) (diag.) display with a bezel-less panel fits seamlessly into the dashboard and offers improved visibility.

Smarter Driving with Intelligent Voice Control

Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make it safer and easier than ever to navigate, communicate and play music on the road. Just connect your smartphone to the XAV-AX7000 to see everything you need on the large touchscreen.

Siri with Apple CarPlay

Easily access the iPhone features you know and love, just by talking to Siri. Music, maps, phone calls, and messages are all under your control.

Voice Control with Android Auto

Use voice commands to dictate messages, take phone calls, or get help from Google Maps. You can even control music playback, just by talking.

Your Personal Navigator

Get directions in real time without ever taking your hands off the wheel. Easily navigate to your destination, or search for nearby stops mid-journey.

Navigating with Apple CarPlay

Tell Siri where you're going, and it will give you real-time directions as you drive.

Navigating with Android Auto

Use Google Maps to get directions and traffic updates whenever you need them.

WebLink Compatible

Weblink is a lightweight app delivery platform designed especially for in-vehicle use. Using your Android or iOS device connection, you can interface with compatible apps on the XAV-AX7000 display — for reliable, responsive infotainment whenever you're on the road.

4 x 100 W of On-Road Power

A built-in class-D amp delivers huge power with minimal interference, for audio that’s crystal clear even at its loudest.

Optimized for Excellence

Circuitry and components are carefully laid out for low-noise, highly efficient electric power transmission.

Precision Power Block Placement

Placing the power block close to the input and amp minimizes power loss, while electrolytic capacitors ensure precise, responsive bass.

Heat Ventilation

An oversized heat sink with an optimally designed fin structure ensures efficient ventilation to prevent overheating.

Hear Music Your Way

Various customization options let you adapt the audio experience to your liking. With the Subwoofer Direct and 2-ohm Speaker Load option, you can hook up a subwoofer directly to the built-in class-D amplifier together with multiple speakers for deep, car-filling sound.

No Need for an External Amplifier to Drive a Subwoofer

You can connect a subwoofer directly to the XAV-AX7000 while enjoying speakers on both front and rear doors. Unlike conventional head units, the XAV-AX7000 has amplifier power to spare, making it capable of simultaneously driving a subwoofer and a full car speaker system. Simply connect both front and rear speakers to the front speaker outputs, and a sub to either side of the rear output. The unique 2-ohm load selector prevents amp or speaker damage.

Channel 2 for the front right and rear right speakers
Channel 3 for the subwoofer

Music that Jumps from Your Dashboard

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 Organizer 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 equalizer.

Build Your Own Sound System

With the three 5-volt pre-outs, you can add components of your choice, like extra amplifiers and subwoofers.

Bezel-Less Anti-Glare Capacitive Touchscreen

Bring up maps, sort through playlists, and make phone calls — all from a smooth, bezel-less display that integrates seamlessly with your dashboard. The 6.95” (17.6 cm) (diag.) screen with anti-glare design ensures improved visibility even in bright daylight.

Less Reflection Than Ever

The anti-glare capacitive touchscreen incorporates an optical filter placed over the LCD panel to help prevent glare on screen when it is exposed to sunlight.

Simple Button Controls

Get instant access to commonly-used features such as volume, source, sound settings and voice control for safe and easy operation on the road.

Dual USB for Phone Connection and Music Library

Thanks to dual USB ports, you can hook up storage devices to access your music library while connecting a smartphone for Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Rear View Camera Ready

Have a rear camera installed? View its feed through the screen, along with customizable guidelines that help you back in safely.

Quick Wake Up

With activation two and a half times faster than previous models, you’re ready to go right after turning on the ignition.

Easy Installation with a Compact Rear Chassis

Despite its double-DIN display, the rear chassis is far smaller than conventional double-DIN units. This makes for much easier installation, and leaves plenty of room for cabling and other accessories in the space behind the display.

Overheats
I bought this for my 2015 Harley Davison street glide and you can’t turn it up past 40 because of overheating issues so if you buy this get it with a amp because it doesn’t enjoy being loud. Other than that it has good features but how good is it actually when you can’t crank it up loud, set back and listen to music while you ride?

Love to actually be able to see the screen!
Super simple to navigate. No learning curve to use this stereo. It has been years since I have installed an aftermarket stereo in any of my vehicles. I am glad I waited until the XAV-7000. The glare free screen, the built on amplifier option. Quality of the picture when watching video and the ease of the platform is ideal for a mid 40's guy like myself. I did a ton of research before I committed to a head unit and glad I did. I feel I certainly made the right decision!

Sounds awesome in my crew cab truck.
I picked this unit because of the power. It sounds loud and clear in my large crew cab truck. You must run a positive wire directly to the battery otherwise the unit cuts out at high volume.

POWER
This is my third Sony unit. AX5500 in my weekend car, AX5000 in the wife’s car and decided to try something a little different for the daily. The factory Toyota radio was pretty boring, and had no volume. I really like the 5500 and 5000 but decided that since this truck was barebones, I would benefit from having the extra power in the head unit. I’m beyond impressed with the sound, has all the great features that my 5500 does, if my other car wasn’t factory amplified this definitely would of been the unit I would of went with. Hard to believe this unit is packing all that power, I definitely will be upgrading my speakers in the near future to really see what this unit can do. I do prefer the screen on the 5500 however this still looks very sleek and it does better in the sun light. Overall very impressed and will continue to purchase/ recommend these Sony units to everyone.

Excellent head unit with one flaw
I am really enjoying my XAV-AX7000 HU. Installation was nice and clean and built-in amplifier eliminated the need of adding additional hardware to my car. One thing I hate about it though is the need to constantly plug in my phone for Android Auto. Sony, if you are listening, please-please-please try to add it in the next software update.
