WARNING
WARNING
This symbol means important instructions. Failure
to heed them can result in serious injury or death.
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.
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.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
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.
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.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and 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.
DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS IN INSERTION
SLOTS OR GAPS.
Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to the product.
6-EN
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions. Failure
to heed them can result in injury or material
property damage.
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.
Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the
product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest
Alpine Service Center for repairing.
PRECAUTIONS
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 +60°C
(+140°F) and –10°C (+14°F) before turning your unit on.
Moisture Condensation
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.
Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs. Playing
a bad disc could severely damage the playback 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.
Never Attempt the Following
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
off.
Inserting Discs
Disc Cleaning
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.
“Error” will be displayed on your player if you insert a disc
incorrectly. If “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.
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 center 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.
New Discs
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 center 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.
Center Hole
Bumps
Center Hole
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 discs only for this unit and never use any
special shaped discs.
Use of anything but round discs may cause damage to the

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 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 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 , 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 Flash 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.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CD-Rs, and
CD-RWs.
This device also can play back Flash Memory media.
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.
This device also supports FAT 12/16/32 for Flash Memory device.
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.
Order of files
Files are played back in the order that the writing software writes them
to the disc. Therefore, the playback order may not be what is expected.
Verify the writing order in the software’s documentation. The playback
order of the folders and files is as follows.

* 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: All Seats
Adjust the time correction level of each speaker to almost the same level.
About Time Correction
1
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.
Listening Position example as follows:
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)
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.
Time Correction Value List
Example 1: 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.

About the Crossover
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,
consult your authorized Alpine dealer.

Notes
• HPF (high pass filter): Cuts the lower frequencies and allows the higher
frequencies to pass.
• LPF (low pass filter): Cuts the higher frequencies and allows the lower
frequencies to pass.
• Slope: The level change (in dB) for a frequency change of one octave.
• 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.
Text information, such as the disc name and the track name, will be

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the following
and refer to “Operating Instructions” on page 6 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.
(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.
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.
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.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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 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 GEARSHIFT.
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.
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-HD149BT. 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 CDE-HD149BT to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the
intended circuit of the CDE-HD149BT 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-HD149BT 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.
