BEFORE INSTALLING THE UNIT
Transport Lock Screws
The mechanism in the CD changer is "locked" into place during shipment by the 4
transport screws. Be sure to remove the screws prior to installation.
Retain these screws for future use when transporting the unit for service/maintenance.
l Caution l
After removing the transport lock screws, place the supplied seals over the screw
holes. These seals are used to keep dust out of the unit, which could cause a
malfunction.
Installation and Wiring Precautions
1
To prevent a short-circuit,
l Be sure to turn off the ignition and remove the negative (-) battery cable, prior to installation.
l Connect power wires last.
Note
If the changer is to be installed in a car that is equipped with an on-board drive or navigation computer, do not disconnect
the battery cable. If the cable is disconnected, the computer memory may be lost. Under these conditions, use extra
caution during installation, not to cause a short circuit.
2
Do not install the unit in the following locations.
l Locations exposed to direct sunlight.
l Where hot air is discharged from the car heater.
l In areas subject to extreme temperatures.
3
Incorrect installation can cause the sound to "skip" when playing a disc.
Mount the unit firmly in place, using the supplied brackets and screws.
4
5
Be careful not to damage the car wiring.
6
l This unit cannot be installed on its side, end, or upside down. Installation in such positions will cause malfunctioning
of the mechanism.
l Be sure to use the supplied screws.
l Be careful not to snag any wires when tightening screws.
l Do not use any of the screws that are part of the brake or steering system, to install the unit.

INSTALLATION
The unit can be installed horizontally, vertically or at a 45° angle. The position of the built-in anti-vibration springs (left and right side), must
correspond to the mounting position chosen. If the springs are not set correctly for the type of installation chosen, the anti-vibration
compensation will not be effective and vibration may cause the disc to skip.
HORIZONTAL INSTALLATION
Set the anti-vibration springs to
position "H".

SYSTEM WIRING AND ADJUSTMENT
IMPORTANT - Some import cars use a special dual antenna “Diversity" system.
If your car has this type of antenna system, you will find the antenna cable will
not fit the socket on the FM modulator. Use of the ACC-40 with “Diversity"
systems is not recommended. You may also find some GM cars and others
have an antenna plug that is too small to mate with the socket on the FM
modulator. If this is found, call Audiovox’s Toll-Free Assistance for a special
adaptor. This adaptor can also be purchased at most car stereo installation
center.

ADJUSTMENT OF FM MODULATOR OUTPUT FREQUENCY
FM Modulator
If there is interference from a local station or a clear signal cannot be obtained
on 89.1 MHz., change the position of the frequency select switch on the side of
the FM Modulator and tune the radio to 88.7 MHz. when using the CD changer.
l Select the frequency before mounting the FM Modulator.
l Radio sensitivity may be slightly reduced when the FM Modulator is connected.

ADJUSTMENT OF FM MODULATOR AUDIO LEVEL
Move to 88.7M Position
The audio level from the modulator is factory-set to provide the correct volume
balance between radio and CD changer in the majority of installations and usually
will not require any adjustment. If, however, a large difference in volume level is
noted when switching between CD changer and FM radio operation, the audio level
from the CD changer may be adjusted as follows:
#0 Phillips Screwdriver
1. With the CD changer off, tune to an FM station and adjust the volume control on
the radio to a normal listening level.
FM Modulator
2. Leaving the volume control at the setting, turn on the CD changer and tune the
radio to the modulator output frequency (89.1 or 88.7 MHz.).
3. Select a LOUD section of the CD. If the volume level is comparable to that of
the FM station in step 1, no adjustment is necessary. If it is noticeably louder or
more quiet than that of the radio station, use a # 0 Phillips screwdriver to adjust
the "AUDIO LEVEL" control on the modulator so that the CD changer volume
is comparable to that of the radio station.

IMPORTANT: If the modulator audio level is adjusted too high, it may result in
unacceptable levels of distortion during loud sections of CD's. If set too low, it may
result in poor signal/noise levels during CD changer operation.
