NOTICE
Product Cleaning
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.
Temperature
Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +45°C
(+113°F) and 0°C (+32°F) before turning your unit on.
New Discs
To prevent the disc from jamming, “Disc 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, then insert
the disc again.

Do not grip or pull out the disc while it is being pulled back into the
player by the automatic reloading mechanism.
Do not attempt to insert a disc into the unit when the unit power is

Do not drop the disc while handling. Hold the disc so you will not
leave fingerprints on the surface. Do not affix tape, paper, or
gummed labels to the disc. Do not write on the disc.
CORRECT

CORRECT
Inserting Discs
Your player accepts only one disc at a time for playback. Do not
attempt to load more than one disc.
Make sure the label side is facing up when you insert the disc.
“Disc error” will be displayed on your player if you insert a disc
incorrectly. If “Disc error” continues to be displayed even though
the disc has been inserted correctly, push the RESET switch with a
pointed object such as a ballpoint pen.
Playing a disc while driving on a very bumpy road may result in
skips, but this will not scratch the disc or damage the player.
Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shaped discs only for this unit and never use
any special shaped discs.
Use of special shaped discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
8-EN
Disc Cleaning
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause the
DVD 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.
Discs Playable on This Unit
Disc Accessories
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 operational problems. We recommend
not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine DVD players.

Operation of some of the functions of this unit is very complex.
Because of this, it was deemed necessary to place these functions
into a special screen. This will restrict operation of these functions
to times when the vehicle is parked. This ensures the focus of the
driver’s attention will be on the road and not on the ICS-X8. This
has been done for the safety of the driver and passengers.
Setup operations cannot be made if the car is moving. The car must
be parked and the parking brake must be engaged for the procedure
described in the Owner’s Manual to be valid. The warning “Unable
to operate while driving.” will be displayed if any attempts are
made to perform these operations while driving.
* Two-layer DVD disc compatible
• The ICS-X8 draws minimal current even when its power switch is
turned off. If the switched power (ignition) lead of the ICS-X8 is
connected directly to the positive (+) post of the vehicle’s battery, the
battery may be discharged.
An SPST (Single-Pole, Single-Throw) switch (sold separately) can be
added to simplify this procedure. Then, you can simply place it in the
OFF position when you leave the vehicle. Turn the SPST switch back
ON before using the ICS-X8. For connecting the SPST switch, refer to
the “Connection Diagram of SPST Switch (sold separately)”
(page 86). If the power (ignition) lead is unswitched, it must be
disconnected from the battery post should the vehicle be left unused
for an extended period of time.

Tips for making your own discs
DVD-ROMs, DVD-RAMs, CD-ROMs (excluding MP3/WMA/
AAC files), photo CDs, etc.
The ICS-X8 plays DVD Video, DivX®, Audio CD and has a built
in MP3/WMA/AAC decoder.
DualDisc
This unit is not compatible with DualDisc.
Using a DualDisc may cause unit malfunction, and may cause disc
damage when the disc is inserted/ejected.
DVD region number (playable region number)
This DVD player will play back any disc whose region number is 2
(or All). DVDs with a region number other than those listed below,
cannot be played on this DVD player.
ALL
Using compact discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)
If you use unspecified compact discs, correct performance cannot
be guaranteed.
You can play CD-Rs (CD-Recordables)/CD-RWs (CDReWritables) which have been recorded only on audio devices.
You can also play CD-Rs/CD-RWs containing MP3/WMA/AAC
formatted audio files.
• Some of the following discs may not play on this unit:
Flawed discs, discs with fingerprints, discs exposed to extreme
temperatures or sunlight (e.g., left in the car or this unit), discs
recorded under unstable conditions, discs on which a recording
failed or a re-recording was attempted, copy-protected CDs
which do not conform to the audio CD industry standard.
• Use discs with MP3/WMA/AAC files written in a format
compliant with this unit. For details, see pages 26 and 27.
To customers using CD-R/CD-RW
• If a CD-R/CD-RW cannot be played back, make sure the last
recording session was closed (finalized).
• Finalize the CD-R/CD-RW if necessary, and attempt playback
again.
10-EN
The following information is designed to help you create your own
music CDs (either Audio CD or MP3/WMA/AAC encoded CD-R/
RW files).
What is the difference between an Audio and MP3/WMA/AAC
CD?
An Audio CD is the same format as the commercial CDs you buy
in the store (also known as CD-DA). MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer 3)/
WMA (Windows Media Audio)/AAC (Advanced Audio Coding) is
a data file that uses a compression scheme to reduce the size of the
music file*.
Multisession CD-R/RW:
Once a recording has been stopped, this is considered one session.
If the disc is not closed (finalized), additional data may be added.
Once this additional data has been recorded, this becomes a
“multisession” CD.
* If the first session on a disc containing both CD-DA data and
MP3/WMA/AAC data is a CD-DA file, only CD-DA files will
be played.
Properly formatted MP3/WMA/AAC Discs:
Use ISO9660 formatting to insure proper playback. You may use
standard ISO naming Level 1 (8.3 DOS standard), Level 2
(32 characters) or Joliet (Windows or Macintosh long filenames)
file naming conventions*.
* Please consult the Owner’s manual for additional information.
On handling compact discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not touch the surface.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight.
Do not affix stickers or labels.
Clean the disc when it is dusty.
Make sure that the disc is smooth and flat.
Do not use commercially available disc accessories.
Do not leave the disc in the car or the unit for a long time.
Never expose the disc to direct sunlight.
Heat and humidity may damage the disc and you may not be
able to play it again.
Using DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs
• This unit is compatible with discs recorded in the standard
DVD-Video format.
• Note that discs not finalized (processed to enable to play on
playback-only DVD players) cannot be played on this DVD
player.
• Some discs may not play back, depending on the recording
device and disc format.
• Discs or files utilizing copy protection, may not be playable.
Some recording systems may not properly format copied files to
enable proper playback.
• In the following cases, the disc may not play on this unit:
discs recorded by certain DVD recorders, certain irregular discs,
flawed discs, dirty discs, when the pickup lens of this DVD
player is dirty, or when moisture condensation has occurred
inside the unit.
• Be sure to follow all cautions included with your DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs discs.
• Do not put stickers, seals, or tape on the label side of DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/DVD+RWs.
• Compared to the regular discs, DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs/DVD+Rs/

What is MP3?
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG Audio Layer 3,” is a
compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the International
Standardization Organization 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 realizes such high compression ratios
by eliminating the sounds that are either inaudible to the human
ear or masked by other sounds.
What is AAC?
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding,” and is a
basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.
What is WMA?
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio,” is compressed audio data.
WMA is similar to MP3 audio data.

Terminology
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.
This device 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.
Formats supported

These values are the time correction values for the different
speakers. Setting these values to make each sound reach the
listening position at the same time as the sound of other speakers.
About Time Correction
The distance between the listener and the speakers in a car vary widely
due to the complex speaker placement. This difference in the distances
from the speakers to the listener creates a shift in the sounds image and
frequency characteristics. This is caused by the time delay between the
sound reaching the listener’s right versus the left ear.
To correct this, this unit is able to delay the audio signal to the speakers
closest to the listener. This effectively creates a perception of increased
distance for those speakers. The listener can be placed at an equal
distance between the left and right speakers for optimum staging.
The adjustment will be made for each speaker in 3.4cm steps.
Example 1. Listening Position: Front Left Seat
Adjust the time correction level of the front left speaker to a high value
and the rear right to zero or a low value.
5.1ms
0.5m
2.25m
The sound is not balanced because the distance between the
listening position and the various speakers is different.
The difference in distance between the front left speaker and the rear
right speaker is 1.75 m (68-7/8").
Here we calculate the time correction value for the front left speaker
in the diagram on the above.
Conditions:
Farthest Speaker – listening position : 2.25 m (88-9/16")
Front left speaker – listening position : 0.5 m (19-11/16")
Calculation: L = 2.25 m – 0.5 m = 1.75 m (68-7/8")
Time correction = 1.75 ÷ 343*1 × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
*1 Speed of sound: 343 m/s (765 mph) at 20°C
In other words, giving the front left speaker a time correction value of
5.1 ms makes it seem as if its distance from the listener is the same
as the distance to the farthest speaker.
Time correction eliminates the differences in the time required for the
sound to reach the listening position.
The time of the front left speaker is corrected by 5.1 ms so that its
sound reaches the listening position at the same time as the sound of
other speakers.
Example 2. Listening Position: All Seats
Adjust the time correction level of each speaker to almost the same level.
1
2
Sit in the listening position (driver’s seat, etc.) and
measure the distance (in meters) between your head
and the various speakers.
Calculate the difference between the distance
correction value to the farthest speaker and the
other speakers.
L = (distance to farthest speaker) – (distance to other
speakers)

About the Crossover
Display Setup
Crossover (X-OVER):
This unit is equipped with an active crossover. The crossover limits the
frequencies delivered to the outputs. Each channel is controlled
independently. Thus, each speaker pair can be driven by the frequencies
for which they have been optimally designed.
The crossover adjusts the HPF (high pass filter) or LPF (low pass filter)
of each band, and also the slope (how fast the filter rolls off the highs or
lows).
Adjustments should be made according to the reproduction
characteristics of the speakers. Depending on the speakers, a passive
network may not be necessary. If you are unsure about this point, please
consult your authorized Alpine dealer.

• The higher the slope value, the steeper the slope becomes.
• Adjust the slope to FLAT to bypass the HP or LP filters.
• Do not use a tweeter without the HPF on or set to a low frequency, as
it may cause damage to the speaker due to the low frequency content.
• You cannot adjust the crossover frequency higher than the HPF or
lower than the LPF.
• Adjustment should be made according to the recommended crossover
frequency of the connected speakers. Determine the recommended
crossover frequency of the speakers. Adjusting to a frequency range
outside that recommended may cause damage to the speakers.
For the recommended crossover frequencies of Alpine speakers, refer
to the respective Owner’s Manual.
We are not responsible for damage or malfunction of speakers caused
by using the crossover outside the recommended value.

Setup Before Using
Connecting a BLUETOOTH Device
About BLUETOOTH
BLUETOOTH is a wireless technology allowing communication
between a mobile device or personal computer over short distances.
This enables a hands-free call or data transmission between
BLUETOOTH compatible devices. BLUETOOTH transmission is
available in the unlicenced 2.4 GHz spectrum if the distance between
devices is within 10 meters. For details, refer to the BLUETOOTH
website (http://www.bluetooth.com/).
• Depending on the BLUETOOTH version, a BLUETOOTH
compatible device may not be able to communicate with this unit.
• Proper function of this unit with all BLUETOOTH compatible
devices is not guaranteed. For handling of the BLUETOOTH
compatible device, consult your ALPINE dealer or ALPINE website.
• Depending on the surroundings, BLUETOOTH wireless connection
may be unstable.
• When you place a call, or perform setup operations, be sure to stop
your car in a safe place.
• Depending on the connected BLUETOOTH compatible device(s), the
function may differ. Also refer to the Owner’s Manual of the
connected device(s).
About the Hands-Free Phone
Hands-free calls are possible when using a HFP (Hands-Free Profile)
compatible mobile phone with this unit.
• Avoid performing a hands-free call in heavy traffic or on narrow or
winding streets.
• Close the windows while calling to reduce background noise.
• If both calling parties are using hands-free devices, or the call is
made in a noisy location, difficulty hearing the other person’s voice
is normal.
• Depending on telephone line conditions or certain mobile devices
used, voices may sound unnatural.
• When using a microphone, speak as directly as you can into the
microphone to obtain the best sound quality.
• Certain mobile phone features are dependent on the capabilities and
settings of your service provider’s network. Additionally, certain
features may not be activated by your service provider, and/or the
provider’s network settings may limit the feature’s functionality.
Always contact your service provider about feature availability and
functionality.
All features, functionality, and other product specifications, as well
as the information contained in the Owner’s Manual are based upon
the latest available information and are believed to be accurate at
the time of printing.
Alpine reserves the right to change or modify any information or
specifications without notice or obligation.

When the car is put into reverse gear, the monitor switches to the rear
view camera image. Guides appear to help visualize the car's width and
distance from the rear bumper.
about 1 m
In the screen, according to the distance guidance marks,
the truck seems to be parked about 1 m away (at the
position B). In actual fact, however, if you reversed to
position A, you would collide with the truck.
In the screen, positions A, B and C seem to be located in
order of proximity. However, in actual fact, the position A
and C are the same distance, and B is farther away than
positions A and C.
1 Car width extension marks (red, yellow and green in
order of distance)
If properly calibrated, the marks indicate the car's width.
This helps guide the car's path when backing up in a
straight line.
The marks represent the distance from the rear of the car
(from the rear end of the bumper).
• The marks do not move in synchronisation with the
steering wheel.
2 Distance guidance marks
The marks represent the distance from the rear of the car
(from the rear end of the bumper).
• The marks do not move in synchronisation with the
steering wheel.
• Each centre position of the mark represents about 0.5 m
(red), about 1 m (yellow) and about 2 m (green) behind.
• Depending on the condition of the car or road surface, the range of
vision may vary.
• The camera has a limited range of vision. Objects at extreme angles
to the camera (e.g. under the bumper or at opposite ends of the
bumper) may not be in the its field-of-vision.
• The rear camera image may have a tint which is different from the
actual surroundings.
• Depending on the car, the guidance may deviate to the right or left.
This is not a malfunction.
• The car width extension mark represents the distance to the road
surface. The distance to an object on the road is not accurately
represented by the guides.
• In the following conditions, screen visibility may be impaired. This is
not a malfunction.
- When it is dark (during the night, etc.).
- Under very high or very low temperature conditions.
- When water drops adhere to the camera, or when the humidity
is high (such as rainy weather, etc.).
- When foreign bodies (such as mud, etc.) adhere to the camera
or its peripheral area.
- When sunlight or headlights directly strike the camera lens.
- When a CCD camera is connected, smearing* may occur. This
phenomenon is peculiar to CCD cameras.
* Smear phenomenon:
A phenomenon which occurs when a high-intensity spot (such
as a reflection of the sunlight on a car body) is shot by the
camera. The picture below is an example of 'vertical smear'
common to CCD cameras.
Distance guidance mark
The distance guides represent the ground level distance from the rear
bumper. It is difficult to accurately estimate the distance to objects
above ground level.
Error between the screen and the actual road surface
In the following conditions, errors are produced between the screen
guidance and the actual road surface. (The illustrations represent a case
when the camera is installed in the standard position.)

The distance guidance mark represents the distance to a
flat road surface. Therefore in the case of an upward
slope behind the car, the distance guides are displayed
closer to the rear bumper than the actual distance. For
example, if there is an obstacle on the upward slope, it
may appear farther away than its actual position.
Also, an error may occur between the guidance and the
actual path of the car on the road surface.
In the case of a downward slope behind the car, the
distance guides are displayed farther from the rear
bumper than the actual distance.
If there is an obstacle on the downward slope, it seems
closer than its actual position.
Also, an error may occur between the guidance and the
actual path of the car on the road surface.

About DVDs
Music CDs and DVDs have grooves (tracks) in which the digital data is
recorded. The data is represented as microscopic pits recorded into the
track – these pits are read by a laser beam to play the disc. On DVDs,
the density of the tracks and pits is twice that of CDs, so DVDs can
contain more data in less space.
CDs
Minimum pit
length 0.9 µm
1.2 mm
Track pitch 1.6 µm
DVDs
Minimum pit
0.6 mm
length 0.6 mm
0.9 µm
Track pitch 0.74 µm
A 12 cm disc can contain one movie or about four hours of music. In
addition, DVDs provide sharp picture quality with vivid colors thanks to
a horizontal resolution of over 500 lines (compared to less than 300 for
VHS tape).
In addition, DVDs offer a variety of functions.
Multiple audio* (page 34)
Movies can be recorded in up to eight languages. The desired
language can be selected from the unit.
Subtitles function* (page 34)

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 7 to 11 of this manual thoroughly for
proper use.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
Warning
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.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE
NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to
electrical shorts.
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, gear lever, brake
pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
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.
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.
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 SCREWS 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
GEARSHIFT.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the space provided
below and keep it as a permanent record. The serial number plate is
located on the bottom of the unit.
ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR
PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.
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.
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 ICS-X8. 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.
• When making connections to the vehicle’s electrical system, be
aware 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 ICS-X8 to the fuse box, make sure the
fuse for the intended circuit of the ICS-X8 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 ICS-X8 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.
• The Display must be completely retracted in the casing when
installing. If it is not, problems may occur.
• When installing in automobiles, make sure the Display can open/
close without coming in contact with the gear shift.

Installation
Mounting the Microphone.
For safe use, make sure of the following:
• location is stable and firm.
• driver’s view and operations are not obstructed.
• microphone is located where the driver’s voice can be easily
picked up (on the sun visor, etc.).
Caution
Do not block the unit’s fan or heat sink, thus preventing
air circulation. If blocked, heat will accumulate inside
the unit and may cause a fire.
When you speak into the microphone, you should not have
to change your driving posture. This may cause a
distraction, taking your attention away from safely driving
your vehicle. Carefully consider direction and distance while
mounting the microphone. Confirm that the driver’s voice
can be easily picked up at the selected location.

• If your vehicle has no ACC power supply, add an SPST (Single-Pole, Single-Throw) switch (sold separately) and fuse (sold separately).
• The diagram and the fuse amperage shown above are in the case when ICS-X8 is used individually.
• If the switched power (ignition) lead of the ICS-X8 is connected directly to the positive (+) post of the vehicle’s battery, the ICS-X8 draws some
current (several hundred milliamperes) even when its switch is placed in the OFF position, and the battery may be discharged.
To prevent external noise from entering the audio system.
Locate the unit and route the leads at least 10 cm away from the car harness.
Keep the battery power leads as far away from other leads as possible.
Connect the ground lead securely to a bare metal spot (remove any paint, dirt or grease if necessary) of the car chassis.
If you add an optional noise suppressor, connect it as far away from the unit as possible. Your Alpine dealer carries various
noise suppressors, contact them for further information.
• Your Alpine dealer knows best about noise prevention measures so consult your dealer for further information.
