Excessive vibrations
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
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.
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.
CORRECT
To prevent the CD from jamming, the LCD is displayed as error 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.

Moisture Condensation
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
You may notice the CD playback sound wavering due to
condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the player and
wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
Damaged Disc
(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may
result in fire, etc.
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing
a bad disc could severely damage the playback mechanism.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE
REACH OF CHILDREN.

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 the disc to be out of standard
specifications and may create operational problems. We
recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine
CD players.
Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shape discs only for this unit and never use
any special shape discs.
Use of special shape discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
Maintenance
If you have problems, do not attempt to repair the unit yourself.
Return it to your Alpine dealer or the nearest Alpine Service
Station for servicing.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed,
consult a physician immediately.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING
FUSES.

What is MP3?
MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1 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.

The “
FOLDER” and “
M.I.X.” indicators appear in the
display, and all files in the current folder are played back in

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.
Press and hold 4(M.I.X.) again to cancel.
Scanning Programs
Press 5(SCAN) to activate the scan mode.
What is WMA?
The first 10 seconds of each track (file) will be played back in
succession.
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio,” is compressed audio data.
WMA is similar to MP3 audio data and can achieve CD quality
sound with small file sizes.

are subject to change without notice.
Warning
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE
NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDE-110/110C/110E/110UB. 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 CDE-110/110C/110E/110UB to the fuse
box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDE-110/
110C/110E/110UB 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-110/110C/110E/110UB 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 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 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.

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.

Connect each input lead coming from an amplifier to
the corresponding output lead coming from the left
rear of the CDE-110/110C/110E/110UB. Connect all
other leads of the CDE-110/110C/110E/110UB according
to details described in the CONNECTlONS section.
Slide the CDE-110/110C/110E/110UB into the dashboard
