You can hear the digital broadcasting easily due to the
incorporation of the IBOC system. “IBOC” stands for In Band On
Channel. This system adds to the existing analog radio signals
by using broadcast carrier.
As a result, Sound quality of AM/FM broadcasting is greatly
improved (An AM is to an FM quality, an FM is to a CD quality).
The station names, call sign, artists and song titles can be
received and displayed on your unit.
*A special antenna is not necessary to tune into a HD Radio
broadcast station.

What is HD Radio™?
While HD Radio™ will bring you pristine audio quality, it will
also provide data services*. Both AM and FM HD Radio™
stations will transmit song and artist title, traffic updates,
weather alerts, news reports and much more. For more
information, visit www.hd-radio.com. Stay tuned!
HD Radio is a trademark of iBiquity Digital Corporation.
HD Radio broadcasts can be enjoyed only in those areas in the United States where the broadcasts can be
received. This means that the HD Radio feature cannot be used outside the U.S. or in areas inside the U.S.
where these broadcasts cannot be receive. ( as of December 2003)

CQ-CB8901U
Common
Using these new receivers, you can pick up the new HD Radio™
digital signals at the same place on the dial (106.7 KROQ will be
digital 106.7 KROQ broadcasting in HD Radio™, 710 WOR will
be digital 710 WOR broadcasting in HD Radio™). Your favorite
HD Radio™ digital station will be right where you left it.
Additionally, new HD Radio™ receivers will still pick up stations
broadcasting in analog, so you don't need two radios. The
benefits of digital far outweigh old analog technology. HD
Radio™ makes radio “fun” again. FM digital will sound like a CD
throughout the coverage area, and AM digital will sound like
today's FM throughout the coverage area, both without the
static, hiss pops or fades that you've had to put up with for
almost a century.

As Needed
Today's AM and FM radio is broadcast in analog, which has
lower audio quality and is filled with static, hiss, pops and fades.
Radio stations have begun a transformation to the world of
digital using a new technology called HD Radio™. Today's
analog signals and new HD Radio™ digital signals will be
transmitted at the same time from AM and FM stations. The
radios you use today will continue to function for years,
however, new receivers are needed to hear the HD Radio digital
signals broadcast from the stations.

the specified fuse is used, it may cause a
fire or an accident.
¡Do not damage the cord by pinching or
pulling it. Do not pull or damage the cord. If
the cord is not treated properly, it will short
out or be severed and may cause a fire or
an accident.

If your car is not wired for an audio unit:
Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for the
battery, usually marked BAT.
182 mm {7 5/32”}
❏ Identify All Leads
The first step in installation is to identify all the car
wires you’ll use when hooking up your LCD monitor.
As you identify each wire, we suggest that you label
it using masking tape and a permanent marker. This
will help avoid confusion when making connections
later.
Note: Do not connect the power connector to the
display unit until you have made all connections. If
there are no plastic caps on the hooking wires, insulate all exposed leads with electrical tape until you
are ready to use them. Identify the leads in the following order.
Power Lead
If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one:
Cut the connector wires one at a time from the plug
(leaving the leads as long as possible) so that you
can work with individual leads. Turn the ignition on
to the accessory position, and ground one lead of
the test bulb to the chassis.
Touch the other lead of the test bulb to each of the
exposed wires from the cut radio connector plug.
Touch one wire at a time until you find the outlet that
causes the test bulb to light.
Now turn the ignition off and then on. If the bulb
also turns off and on, that outlet is the car power
lead.
If your car is not wired for an audio unit:
Go to the fuse block and find the fuse port for radio
(RADIO) accessory (ACC) or ignition (IGN).
Battery Lead
If your stereo unit has a yellow lead, you will need to
locate the car's battery lead. Otherwise you may
ignore this procedure. (The yellow battery lead provides continuous power to maintain a clock or other
functions.)
46
If your car has a radio or is pre-wired for one:
With the ignition and headlights off, identify the car
battery lead by grounding one lead of the test bulb
to the chassis and checking the remaining exposed
wires from the cut radio connector plug.
Before Installation (Continue)
Warning
¡DO NOT INSTALL THE MONITOR IN A LOCATION
WHICH OBSTRUCTS DRIVING, VISIBILITY OR
WHICH IS PROHIBITED BY APPLICABLE LAWS
AND REGULATIONS. If the monitor is installed
in a location which obstructs forward visibility
or operation of the air bag or other safety equipment or which interferes with operation of the
car, it may cause an accident.
Speakers (not supplied speaker)
Identify the car speaker leads. There are two leads
for each speaker, usually color coded.
A handy way to identify the speaker leads and the
speaker they are connected with is to test the leads
using a 1.5 V AA battery as follows.
Hold one lead against one pole of the battery and
stroke the other lead across the other pole. You will
hear a scraping sound in a speaker if you are holding a speaker lead.
If not, keep testing different lead combinations until
you have located all the speaker leads. When you
label them, include the speaker location for each.
❏ Connect All Leads
Now that you have identified all the wires in the car,
you're ready to begin connecting them to the LCD
monitor wires. The Electrical Connections (a page
50-51) shows the proper connections and color
coding of the leads.
We strongly recommend that you test the unit
before making a final installation.
You can set the unit on the floor and make temporary connections to test the unit. Use electrical tape
to cover all exposed wires.
Important: Connect the red power lead last, after
you have made and insulated all other connections.
Ground
Connect the black ground lead of the power connector to the metal car chassis.
Speakers
Connect the speaker wires. See the wiring diagram
for the proper hookups. Follow the diagram carefully
to avoid damaging the speakers and the stereo unit.
The speakers used must be able to handle more than
50 W of audio power. If using an optional audio
power, the speakers should be able to handle the
maximum amplifier output power. Speakers with low
input ratings can be damaged.
Speaker impedance should measure 4–8 Ω, which
is typically marked on most speakers. Lower or
higher impedance speakers will affect output and
can cause both speaker and stereo unit damage.
Caution: Never ground the speaker
cords. For example, do not use a chassis
ground system or a three-wire speaker common system. Each speaker must be connected
separately using parallel insulated wires. If in
doubt about how your car’s speakers are wired,
please consult with your nearest professional
installer.
Battery
Connect the yellow battery lead to the correct radio
wire or to the battery fuse port on the fuse block.
Equipment
Connect any optional equipment according to the
instructions furnished with the equipment. Read the
operating and installation instructions of any equipment you will connect to this unit.
Power
Connect the red power lead to the correct car radio
wire or to the appropriate fuse port on the fuse
block.
If the LCD monitor functions properly with all these
connections made, disconnect the wires and proceed to the final installation.
❏ Final Installation
Lead Connections
Connect all wires, making sure that each connection
is insulated and secure. Bundle all loose wires and
fasten them with tape so they will not fall down
later. Now insert the LCD monitor into the mounting
collar.

Installation
Congratulations! After making a few final checks,
you’re ready to enjoy your new LCD monitor.
❏ Final Checks
1. Make sure that all wires are properly connected and insulated.
2. Make sure that the LCD monitor is securely
held in the mounting collar.
3. Turn on the ignition to check the unit for
proper operation.
If you have difficulties, consult your nearest authorized professional installer for assistance.
