DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS OR SCREWS OUT OF THE REACH
OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician
immediately.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
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 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 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.
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed
them can result in injury or material property damage.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY.
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.
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.
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
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.
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.
co
m
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.
USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS.
Use for other than its designed application may result in fire, electric shock or
other injury.
a
This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed
them can result in serious injury or death.
KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL HEAR OUTSIDE
NOISES WHILE DRIVING.
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.
.u
WARNING
WARNING
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 safetyrelated 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.
13
0.
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.
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product damage.
DO NOT INSTALL THE MONITOR NEAR THE PASSENGER SEAT AIR BAG.
If the unit is not installed correctly the air bag may not function correctly and
when triggered the air bag may cause the monitor to spring upwards causing an
accident and injuries.
PRECAUTIONS
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before installing
your PXA-H800. This will reduce any chance of damage to the unit in case of
a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the color 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 PXA-H800 to the
fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the PXA-H800 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 PXA-H800 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.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire,
etc.
DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR ATTENTION AWAY
FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE.
Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed
after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location before
performing these functions. Failure to do so may result in an 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 or the engraved
serial number is located on the bottom of the unit.

Parametric Equalizer
The Parametric EQ has fewer bands but gives more control over
where the band is located in the audio spectrum. The user can also
control how much overlap with adjacent frequencies (Q). This
provides you with a sound control feature of professional-level, which
allows you to adjust an extremely narrow range in pin-point fashion
without affecting the neighboring sound regions.
X-Over
The X-Over allows this processor to output audio within a specific
band. These specific bands are sent to drive speakers optimized to
reproduce those bands. Use the integrated HPF (High Pass Filter) or
LPF (Low Pass Filter) to create a specified output for each channel.
The Slope and Level of each channel is also adjustable.

EUPHONY
EUPHONY is an innovative sound field reproduction method which
DiMAGIC has created with the latest acoustic technology based on
the core concept of “enjoying beautiful sound.” Taking maximum
advantage of minute differences of sound between the right and left
stereo signals, reverberation, and acoustics, with adaptive filters, the
realistic sensation of sound field is created. The system features
sound quality that is pleasant even after long listening, which is the
optimum sound for long distance driving.
Before You First Use the Unit
When you first use the unit, set the following:
Turning Power On (page 10)/(page 35)
About the Audio Setting
Setting the Speaker System (page 13)/(page 37)
The inherent sound quality inside a vehicle varies widely. Numerous
factors, including media used, vehicle type, speakers, etc., contribute to
this inconsistency. This processor is able to compensate for many of
these factors to optimize the sound automatically.
Setting the AUX Input System (page 14)/(page 39)
ImprintEQ
ImprintEQ is a system to obtain the optimum acoustic effect at each
seat based on the automatically measured acoustic data of the
cabin.
RoadEQ
Road EQ (REAL-TIME OPTIMIZED ADAPTIVE DRIVING EQ) is a
function to automatically adjust the EQ properties in accordance with
the road noise while driving.
TCR (Time Correction)/Auto TCR (Automatic Time Correction)
In a vehicle, it is not possible to change the listening positions of the
user. Using Time Correction, an optimized listening position is
created no matter where the user is seated. This automated
adjustment is able to focus the auditory image as well as expand the
sound field making for a more natural sound.
“TCR” digitally delays the sound output from each speaker in order to
align the timing of the sound reaching the listener.

• For details on the connection of a navigation system, refer to the
installation manual.
Be sure to read before performing automatic
measurement.
• The automatic measurement should be performed in a quiet place
with the engine, air-conditioner, and heater turned off. If a mobile
phone or car phone is installed in the vehicle, move them outside of
the cabin, or turn the power off. Sound other than the measuring
sound (ambient noise around the vehicle, engine noise, and
ringtones) may interfere with measurement, resulting in inaccurate
measurement of the acoustic characteristics of the cabin.
• Be aware that the battery may be drained if you use the unit for an
extended period of time without running the engine.
• The microphone supplied with this product is specifically designed
for this type of measurement. Use of any other microphone will give
poor or no results. Use of microphones other than the one supplied is
not recommended.
• If the system is equipped with a power amplifier with input level
control or a powered subwoofer, the measurement may not be
possible if the input level is set low. However, to perform correct
measurement, the input level should not be set too high.
• For a power amplifier with low-pass filter, turn off the low-pass filter
of the power amplifier to make measurement. The low-pass filter in
the powered subwoofer or the power amplifier for a subwoofer
should be set at the highest cutoff frequency.
Measurement sequence for the automatic measurement
functions
Perform the automatic measurement in the following sequence.
When ImprintEQ is used:
First, ImprintEQ, then RoadEQ.
When ImprintEQ is not used:
First, Auto TCR, then RoadEQ.
• When ImprintEQ is used, AutoTCR is not required.
• When ImprintEQ and AutoTCR are performed after RoadEQ, reperform RoadEQ.

• The higher the slope value, the steeper the slope becomes.
• Adjust the slope to FLAT (0 dB/oct) 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.
Adjusting X-Over and Switching the
Phases
This section describes how to adjust X-Over. Before working on this,
refer to “About the Crossover (X-Over)” (page 26).
Hint for adjusting the subwoofer
If the subwoofer is installed on the rear deck, setting a gentle
L.P.F. slope (for example 6 dB/ oct.) makes the sound
localization more to the rear. This can also affect the acoustic
localization of the front.

About the Crossover (X-Over)
Crossover (X-Over):
0.
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.

Hints for adjusting the high range
Depending on the speaker, inputting low frequency component
signals (about 2 kHz or less) with the H.P.F. adjustment could
result in distortion. If so, set a steep slope (for example
30 dB/oct.).
When doing so, adjust so that the mid and high range sounds do
not separate.
Normally use with the L.P.F. off. If the high range is too strong,
we recommend adjusting for a gentle slope.
Hint for adjusting the low range
When a subwoofer is connected and you are using a speaker
with a low range of under 10 or 12 cm (3-15/16” or 4-3/4”),
setting the low range H.P.F. to “OFF” can result in distortion
when low frequency components are input.
If so, set the H.P.F. slope to a value suited for the speaker’s
frequency response.

Distance between front left speaker and listening position: 0.5 m
(20")
Calculation: L = 2.25 m (88-3/4") – 0.5 m (20") = 1.75 m (68-3/4")
Compensation time = 1.75 ÷ 343 x 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
In other words, setting the time correction value for the front left
speaker to 5.1 (ms) sets a virtual distance matching the
distance to the farthest speaker.

Because of the particular conditions inside the vehicle, there are major
differences in the distances between the different speakers and the
various listening positions. The proper time correction can be obtained
using the automatic time correction function (“Auto TCR”), but it is also
possible to calculate the optimum correction values and eliminate the
time error at the listening position using this function.
The unit for the time correction can be chosen to be either “cm” or
“inch.” (Initial setting: “cm”)
Divide the distances calculated for the different
speakers by the speed of sound (343 m/s
temperature 20°C).
This value is the time correction value for the different
speakers.
The sound is
uneven because the distance
between the listening position
and the different speakers is
different.
The difference in the distance
between the front left and rear
right speakers is 1.75 meters
(68-3/4").
Time correction eliminates the
difference between the time
required for the sound from the
different speakers to reach the
listening position.
Setting the time correction of the
front left speaker to 5.1 ms
makes it possible to coordinate
the distance from the listening
position to the speaker.

• The Commander cannot set ImprintEQ setup. Refer to PC Operation
Section “Setting ImprintEQ” (page 17).
WARNING
13
0.
• Do not perform automatic measurement while the vehicle is
running.
Do not perform automatic measurement while the vehicle is
running. Automatic measurement requires microphones to be
installed in the cabin to measure acoustic characteristics, and
the speakers may output loud noise for measurement. This
may interfere with safe driving and lead to an accident.
Be sure to read before performing the automatic
measurement.
• The automatic measurement should be performed in a quiet place
with the engine, air-conditioner, and heater turned off. If a mobile
phone or car phone is installed in the vehicle, move them outside of
the cabin, or turn the power off. Sound other than the measuring
sound (ambient noise around the vehicle, engine noise, and
ringtones) may interfere with measurement, resulting in inaccurate
measurement of the acoustic characteristics of the cabin.
• Be aware that the battery may be drained if you use the unit for an
extended period of time without running the engine.
• The microphone supplied with this product is specifically designed
for this type of measurement. Use of any other microphone will give
poor or no results. Use of microphones other than the one supplied is
not recommended.
• If the system is equipped with a power amplifier with input level
control or a powered subwoofer, the measurement may not be
possible if the input level is set low. However, to perform correct
measurement, the input level should not be set too high.
• For a power amplifier with low-pass filter, turn off the low-pass filter
of the power amplifier to make measurement. The low-pass filter in
the powered subwoofer or the power amplifier for a subwoofer
should be set at the highest cutoff frequency.

Adjusting the Time Correction
Automatically (Auto TCR)
A vehicle poses a unique listening environment. Speaker distances vary
widely to each listening position. These special conditions can be
overcome using the included microphone and the powerful
measurement system in this processor. The processor measures and
analyzes data automatically to optimize time correction for each speaker
and listening position selected.

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.

Adjusting X-Over and Switching the
Phases
This section describes how to adjust X-Over. Before working on this,
refer to “About the Crossover (X-Over)” (page 48).
Note on adjusting the subwoofer
If the subwoofer is installed on the rear deck, setting a gentle
LPF slope (for example 6 dB/ oct.) makes the sound localization
more to the rear. This can also affect the acoustic localization of
the front.
Note on adjusting the high range
Depending on the speaker, inputting low frequency component
signals (about 2 kHz or less) with the HPF adjustment could
result in distortion. If distortion occurs, set a steep slope (for
example 30 dB/oct.).
Adjust so that the mid and high range sounds do not separate.
Normally use with the LPF turned off. If the high range is too
strong, we recommend adjusting for a gentle slope.

Note on adjusting the low range
When a subwoofer is connected and you are using a speaker
with a low range of under 10 or 12 cm (3-15/16” or 4-3/4”),
setting the low range HPF to “OFF” can result in distortion when
low frequency components are input.
If so, set the H.P.F. slope to a value suited for the speaker’s
frequency response.

Adjusting the Time Correction (TCR)
Because of the particular conditions inside the vehicle, there are major
differences in the distances between the different speakers and the
listening position. The proper time correction can be obtained using the
automatic time correction function (“Auto TCR”), but it is also possible
to calculate the optimum correction values and eliminate the time error
at the listening position yourself using this function.
e Calculation of time correction
2.25m
The sound is uneven because
the distance between the
listening position and the
different speakers is different.
The difference in the distance
between the front left and rear
right speakers is 1.75 meters
(68-3/4").
Time correction eliminates the
difference between the time
required for the sound from the
different speakers to reach the
listening position.
Setting the time correction of the
front left speaker to 5.1 ms
makes it possible to coordinate
the distance from the listening
position to the speaker.

To install a center speaker, it must be located in the dash, an equal

created by sending the center channel information to both the Left and
Right speakers. Adjusting the center width in Dolby Pro Logic II

makes this function ineffective. This is used in a system where there is
no sub-woofer and the rear speakers can produce lower frequency
sounds than the front speakers. (Initial setting: “OFF”, “±0 dB”)

Dolby Pro Logic II
Terminology
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories that allows large quantities of
audio data to be efficiently recorded on discs. It is compatible
with audio signals from mono (1 channel) all the way up to 5.1channel surround sound. The signals for the different channels
are completely independent, and since the sound is high quality
digital there is no loss of sound quality.
Dolby Pro Logic II provides multichannel surround sound from
any 2 channel source. It reproduces extended bandwidth
playback with 5.1 channels.
This is made possible by an advanced matrix surround decoder.
This new decoder is able to draw out spatial characteristics of
the recording without adding tonal coloration or artificial delays
that did not exist in the original.
Linear PCM audio
LPCM is a signal recording format used for music CDs. Whereas
music CDs are recorded at 44.1 kHz/ 16 bits, DVDs are recorded
at 48 kHz/16 bits to 96 kHz/24 bits, thereby achieving higher
sound quality than music CDs.
