Operating Instructions
WARNING
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.
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 BOAT.
Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be
performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the boat 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
boat sirens or approaching vessels can be dangerous and may result
in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD VOLUME LEVELS IN A
BOAT MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING DAMAGE.
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.
MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.
Temperature
Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of
the boat and cause an accident.
Be sure the temperature inside the boat is between +60°C (+140°F)
and –10°C (+14°F) before turning your unit on.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
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.
DO NOT CONNECT A POWER SUPPLY OTHER THAN A DC
12V NEGATIVE GROUND TYPE.
Failure to do so may result in accident or fire.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS OR SCREWS 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.
4-EN
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
Correct Handling
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.
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
INCORRECT
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
New Disc
CORRECT
Disc Cleaning
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.
Outside
(Bumps)
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.
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.

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-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.
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 AAC?
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding”, and is a
basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.
If tag data is in an MP3/WMA/AAC file, this device can display
the title (track title), artist name, and album name ID3 tag/WMA
tag data.
This device can only display single-byte alphanumeric
characters (up to 30 for ID3 tags and up to 15 for WMA tags)
and the underscore. For non-supported characters, the display
is NO SUPPORT.
If information contains characters other than ID3 tag information,
the audio file may not be played back.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed, depending
on the contents.
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 USB memory.
A disc can hold up to 510 files/folders (including Root Folders),
and the maximum number of folders is 255. This unit can
recognize at least 100 folders (including root folder) and
100 files per folder stored in USB memory.
Playback may not be performed if a disc or USB memory
exceeds the limitations described above.
Do not make a file’s playback time more than 1 hour.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CD-Rs,
and CD-RWs.
This device also can play back USB memory media.
Corresponding File Systems
What is WMA?
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.
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: “mp3”
WMA: “wma” (ver. 7.1, 8 and 9 are supported)
AAC: “m4a”
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.
Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates
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 USB 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.

Terminology
Bit rate
This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The
higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger
the files.
Sampling rate
This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled
(recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz,
so the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The
higher the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the
larger the volume of data.
Encoding
Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files into
the specified audio compression format.
Tag
Song information such as track titles, artist names, album names,
etc., written into MP3/WMA/AAC files.
Root folder
The root folder (or root directory) is found at the top of the file
system. The root folder contains all folders and files. It is created
automatically for all burned discs.

Setting the MX Level
MX (Media Xpander) makes vocals or instruments sound distinct
regardless of the music source. The FM radio, CD, USB memory and
iPhone/iPod, will be able to reproduce the music clearly.
Changing the source to which you want to apply Media
Xpander.
FM (MX level 1 to 3):
The medium to high frequencies become clearer, and produces
well balanced sound at all frequencies.
CD (MX level 1 to 3):
CD mode processes a large amount of data during playback.
MX takes advantage of this large data quantity to reproduce a
more clear, clean output.
CMPM/SAT (MX level 1 to 3):
This corrects information that was lost at the time of
compression. This reproduces a well-balanced sound close to
the original.
DVD (MX level 1 to 3):
A DVD or Video CD contains a large quantity of data such as
music clip. MX uses this data to reproduce the sound
accurately.
AUX (MX level 1 to 3):
Choose the MX mode (CMPM, MOVIE, or MUSIC) that
corresponds to the media connected.
• The initial setting of MX is different depending on the source.
• Each music source, such as FM radio, CD, and MP3/WMA/AAC can
have its own MX setting.
• On discs with both MP3/WMA/AAC and CD-DA, when the source
changes from “MP3/WMA/AAC to CD-DA” or “CD-DA to
MP3/WMA/AAC”, MX-mode switching may delay playback slightly.
• Setting to Non Effect sets MX mode of each music source to OFF.
• This function is inoperable when DEFEAT is set to ON.
• There is no MX mode for AM radio.
• If an audio processor with the MX function (PXA-H701, etc.) is
connected, its own MX processing is applied to the music source.
Since the processor MX settings may not match the head unit, the
audio processor needs to be adjusted. For details, refer to the
Owner’s Manual of the audio processor.
• “CMPM” is applied for MP3/WMA/AAC and iPhone/iPod.
• “SAT” is applied for XM radio and SIRIUS radio.
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.
About Time Correction
The distance between the listener and the speakers in a boat 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.

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.
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.
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*1 × 1,000 = 5.1 (ms)
*1 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. Listening Position: All Seats

Sit in the listening position (driver’s seat, etc.) and
measure the distance (in meters) between your head
and the various speakers.

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, please
consult your authorized Alpine dealer.

• 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.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and page 4 of this manual thoroughly for
proper use.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
Warning
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.
DO NOT CONNECT A POWER SUPPLY OTHER THAN A DC
12V NEGATIVE GROUND TYPE.
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.
Failure to do so may result in accident or fire.
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.
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 hatch
covers or engine covers) 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 DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR
DUST.
When drilling holes in the hull 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.
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.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS OR SCREWS OUT
OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.
Precautions
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult
a physician immediately.
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDA-118M. 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 boat’s electrical system.
• When making connections to the boat’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-118M to the fuse box, make
sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDA-118M has the
appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to
the unit and/or the boat. When in doubt, consult your Alpine
dealer.
• The CDA-118M 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 boat body.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER
BOAT OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR
THROTTLE CONTROLS.
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, throttle controls, etc.
can be extremely hazardous.
