About the Time Correction
The distance between the listener and the speakers in a
car vary widely due to the special conditions of the mobile
environment. 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, the CDA-7892E 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 a step of
0.1 ms.
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.
Here we calculate the time correction value for the front left
speaker in the diagram at the left.
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* × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
*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 the distance
to the front left speaker is the same as the distance to the
farthest speaker.
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").
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
3
5.1ms
0.5m
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 to the
farthest speaker and the other speakers.
L = (distance to farthest speaker) – (distance to other
speakers)
Divide the distances calculated for the speakers by the
speed of sound (343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C).
These values are the time correction values for the
different speakers.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 2 and 3 of this manual thoroughly
for proper use.
Caution
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.
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.
Warning
(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 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.
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 CDA-7892E. 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 CDA-7892E to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDA-7892E 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 CDA-7892E 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.
