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

Online-store car audio and autogoods Winauto
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 centre 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.

There are various accessories available on the market for protecting
the disc surface and improving sound quality. However, most of

recommend not using these accessories on discs played in Alpine
CD players.

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 centre 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, and then
insert the disc again.

CAUTION
Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/

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 realises 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.

extensions “mp3” / “wma” / “m4a”. Files with no extension cannot be
played back (WMA ver. 7.1, 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.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CD-Rs, and
CD-RWs.

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.
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.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
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.
in
au
to
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.
.u
a
(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.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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.
w
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 SHIFT LEVER.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
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-185BT. This will reduce any chance of damage to
the unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the colour 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-185BT to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended
circuit of the CDE-185BT 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-185BT 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.
