At the heart of each car audio system is a component that is typically referred to as a head unit. Most people refer to this component as a radio or a stereo, which are both accurate terms that don’t tell the whole story. Most of these components do include radio tuners, and stereo has been around since 1960, but the more generalized purpose of a head unit is to provide some type of audio signal.
In the past, head units provided audio signals from 8 tracks, compact cassettes, and even a proprietary type of record player. Most head units now include a CD players, but satellite radio, digital music, and even internet radio are also popular audio sources.
In addition to acting as the brains of the audio system, some head units also include video functionality. These head units are typically capable of playing DVD or Blu-ray discs, and some also have built-in LCD screens. In the same way that a traditional head unit provides audio signals to speakers, video head units can often be hooked into external displays.
Modern head units are sometimes also integrated into infotainment systems. These head units typically have large LCD screens, and they are often capable of displaying navigation data, operating climate controls, and performing other functions.
