U.S. Based Company Enters Head Unit Business
Oxnard, CA – (October 30, 2012) – Scosche Industries, award winning innovator of mobile
electronic products and accessories for the aftermarket, will introduce its first head unit at the
2012 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas. An industry first, the
unique in-dash head unit (#SCDBTA60) allows users to bring virtually all of their digital media
content into the car and control it right from the dash, and also enables an enhanced experience
for passengers with its full remote control capability from compatible iOS and Android devices via
the controlFREQ app. The innovative car stereo receiver features a variety of entertainment
options including A2DP wireless streaming, MP3 and CD Playback all with wireless control.
Known for its “Custom Kit, Factory Fit” installation kits, Scosche’s new car stereo receiver is the
company’s first head unit produced in over 30 years of business in the aftermarket industry. “The
introduction of our aftermarket stereo is a huge milestone in the history of Scosche,” said Roger
Alves, president, Scosche Industries. “This development has been a long time in the making and
we’re excited to bring this product to the public.”
Internal source and streaming audio metadata is displayed simultaneously on the smartphone
and head unit while maintaining direct control from its optimally positioned hard keys and rotary
encoder, allowing the smartphone to also serve as an augmented display. The AM/FM RDS
enabled tuner will display artist, song or station information from supporting FM broadcasts along
with 30 station programmable presets. The integrated SD card slot enables MP3 file playback
while the front USB port also supports direct iPod/iPhone music control and charging for most
devices. The unit also includes a built-in microphone for convenient Bluetooth handsfree
calling. Music can also be streamed wirelessly from Bluetooth A2DP enabled devices.
The unit boasts attractive white backlighting and a large display on its flip-down detachable
faceplate. For sound system building, it includes both a 40W x 4 MAX power internal amplifier
and 3pre-amp outputs (front/rear/sub) for adding external amplifiers. The CD player will support
CD-R, CD-RW and MP3 CD playback. Scosche’s head unit also includes a front AUX input for
connecting virtually any portable audio player.
To accompany the new head unit, Scosche will also debut the new controlFREQ app for iOS and
Android devices. By downloading the free app, listening to music in the car becomes a full
multimedia experience. Listeners can change between tracks, MP3s and easily switch between
various sources all from the convenience of their smartphone. Optimize sound performance
remotely with the integrated EQ presets, bass/treble and balance/fader controls. In addition,
controlFREQ works up to 33 feet away from the car stereo giving users full remote access

essential car audio app.
