wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
in
au
to
Excessive volume levels that obscure sounds such as emergency
vehicle sirens or road warning signals (train crossings, etc.) can be
dangerous and may result in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD
VOLUME LEVELS IN A CAR MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING
DAMAGE.
Use a soft dry cloth for periodic cleaning of the product. For more
severe stains, please dampen the cloth with water only. Anything
else has the chance of dissolving the paint or damaging the plastic.

Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult
a physician immediately.
Never Attempt the Following
Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into the

attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc.
“ERROR” will be displayed on your player if you insert a disc
incorrectly.

New Discs
Disc Cleaning
To prevent the CD from jamming, “ERROR” is displayed if discs
with irregular surfaces are inserted or if discs are inserted
incorrectly. When a new disc is ejected immediately after initial
loading, use your finger to feel around the inside of the centre hole
and outside edge of the disc. If you feel any small bumps or
irregularities, this could inhibit proper loading of the disc. To
remove the bumps, rub the inside edge of the hole and outside edge
of the disc with a ballpoint pen or other such instrument, and then
insert the disc again.
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause the
CD player to skip. For routine cleaning, wipe the playing surface
with a clean, soft cloth from the centre of the disc to the outer edge.
If the surface is heavily soiled, dampen a clean, soft cloth in a
solution of mild neutral detergent before cleaning the disc.

Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
There are various accessories available on the market for protecting
the disc surface and improving sound quality. However, most of
them will influence the thickness and/or diameter of the disc. Using
such accessories can cause the disc to be out of standard
specifications and may create operational problems. We
recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine

About MP3/WMA/AAC
CAUTION
Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/
WMA/AAC data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it,
whether for free or for a fee, without permission of the copyright
holder is strictly prohibited by the Copyright Act and by
international treaty.
What is MP3?
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG Audio Layer 3,” is a compression
standard prescribed by the ISO, the International Standardisation
Organisation and MPEG which is a joint activity institution of the IEC.
MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding is capable of
compressing audio data at extremely high ratios, reducing the size of
music files to as much as one-tenth their original size. This is achieved
while still maintaining near CD quality. The MP3 format realises such
high compression ratios by eliminating the sounds that are either
inaudible to the human ear or masked by other sounds.

What is WMA?
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio,” is compressed audio data.
WMA is similar to MP3 audio data.
What is AAC?
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding,” and is a basic
format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.
Method for creating MP3/WMA/AAC files
Audio data is compressed using software with MP3/WMA/AAC codecs.
For details on creating MP3/WMA/AAC files, refer to the user’s manual
for that software.
MP3/WMA/AAC files that are playable on this device have the file
extensions “mp3” / “wma” / “m4a”. Files with no extension cannot be
played back (WMA ver. 7.1, 8 and 9 are supported). Protected files are
not supported, neither are raw AAC files (using the “.aac” extension).
There are many different versions of the AAC format. Confirm that the
software being used conforms to the acceptable formats listed above.
It’s possible that the format may be unplayable even though the
extension is valid.
Playback of AAC files encoded by iTunes is supported.

Playing back MP3/WMA/AAC
MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, then written to a CD-R, CD-RW using
CD-R writing software or stored to a USB Memory. A disc can hold up to
509 files/folders (including Root Folders), and the maximum number of
folders is 255.
Playback may not be performed if a disc exceeds the limitations
described above.
Do not make a file’s playback time more than 1 hour.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CD-Rs, and
CD-RWs.
Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The higher
the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger the files.
Sampling rate
This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled
(recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz, so
the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The higher
the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger the
volume of data.
Encoding
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files into the
specified audio compression format.
Tag
Song information such as track titles, artist names, album names, etc.,
written into MP3/WMA/AAC files.
Root folder
The root folder (or root directory) is found at the top of the file system.
The root folder contains all folders and files. It is created automatically
for all burned discs.
in
au
to
Corresponding File Systems
This device supports discs formatted with ISO9660 Level 1 or Level 2.
Under the ISO9660 standard, there are some restrictions to remember.
The maximum nested folder depth is 8 (including the root directory).
The number of characters for a folder/file name is limited.
Valid characters for folder/file names are letters A-Z (all caps), numbers
0-9, and ‘_’ (underscore).
This device also can play back discs in Joliet, Romeo, etc., and other
standards that conform to ISO9660. However, sometimes the file
names, folder names, etc., are not displayed correctly.

ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.
If tag data is in an MP3/WMA/AAC file, this device can display the title
(track title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag/WMA tag data.
This device can only display single-byte alphanumeric characters (up to
30 for ID3 tags and up to 15 for WMA tags) and the underscore. For
non-supported characters, “NO SUPPORT” is displayed.
If information contains characters other than ID3 tag information, the
audio file may not be played back.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed, depending on the
contents.
Formats supported
This device supports CD-ROM XA, Mixed Mode CD, Enhanced CD
(CD-Extra) and Multi-Session.
This device cannot correctly play back discs recorded with Track At
Once or packet writing.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the following
and refer to “Operating Instructions” on page 5 for proper use.
CAUTION
WARNING
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical
skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer
where you purchased this product to have the work done.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or
product damage.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY
TERMINAL.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP
METAL EDGE.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to
electrical shorts.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat
rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and
damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a
rubber grommet to prevent the wire’s insulation from being cut by
the metal edge of the hole.
in
au
to
Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other
equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of
the wire and result in fire or electric shock.
.u
a
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other than
designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not
securely install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become
loose resulting in hazards or product failure.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES.
When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions
so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel lines, tanks or
electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING SYSTEMS TO
MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
w
Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other
safety-related system), or tanks should NEVER be used for
installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable
control of the vehicle and cause fire etc.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF
CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult
a physician immediately.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER VEHICLE
OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR SHIFT LEVER.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN SURROUNDING
OBJECTS.
Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to
prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct
or hang up on places such as the steering wheel, shift lever, brake
pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous.
30-EN
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR DUST.
Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of
moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit may
result in product failure.
PRECAUTIONS
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (−) battery post before
installing your CDE-182R/CDE-181 Series/CDE-180 Series/
UTE-81R. This will reduce any chance of damage to the unit in case
of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the colour coded leads according to the diagram.
Incorrect connections may cause the unit to malfunction or damage
to the vehicle’s electrical system.

of the factory installed components (e.g. on-board computer). Do not
tap into these leads to provide power for this unit. When connecting
the CDE-182R/CDE-181 Series/CDE-180 Series/UTE-81R to the
fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the
CDE-182R/CDE-181 Series/CDE-180 Series/UTE-81R has the
appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to the
unit and/or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult your Alpine dealer.
• The CDE-182R/CDE-181 Series/CDE-180 Series/UTE-81R uses
female RCA-type jacks for connection to other units (e.g. amplifier)
having RCA connectors. You may need an adaptor to connect other
units. If so, please contact your authorized Alpine dealer for
assistance.
• Be sure to connect the speaker (−) leads to the speaker (−) terminal.
Never connect left and right channel speaker cables to each other or
to the vehicle body.
