GUIDE FOR INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS
• Please read this GUIDE FOR INSTALLATION AND CONNECTIONS and the OWNER’S
MANUAL thoroughly to familiarize yourself with each control and function. We at ALPINE hope
that your new PXA-H900 will give you many years of listening enjoyment.
In case of problems when installing your unit, please contact your authorized ALPINE dealer.
Points to Observe for Safe Usage
• Read this manual carefully before starting operation and use this system safely. We cannot be
responsible for problems resulting from failure to observe the instructions in this manual.
• This manual uses various pictorial displays to show how to use this product safely and to avoid
harm to yourself and others and damage to your property.
Here is what these pictorial displays mean. Understanding them is important for reading this
manual.
• Meaning of displays
Warning
This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can
result in serious injury or death.
Caution
This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can
result in injury or property damage.
Warning
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER. Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES. Failure to do so may
result in fire or electric shock.
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS. Failure to make the proper connections may result in
fire or product damage.
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.
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 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, gear lever, brake pedals,
etc. can be extremely hazardous.
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.
2-EN
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.
DO NOT INSTALL THE MONITOR NEAR THE PASSENGER SEAT AIR BAG. If the unit is not
installed correctly the air bag may not function correctly and when triggered the air bag may
cause the monitor to spring upwards causing an accident and injuries.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS. Doing so may cause heat to build up inside
and may result in fire.
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.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS. 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.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY. 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.
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.
3-EN
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before installing your PXA-H900. 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 PXA-H900 to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended
circuit of the PXA-H900 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 PXA-H900 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.
Wiring Connections
Improper wiring connections could cause serious damage to your audio system. Be sure you:
1. DO NOT connect (–) wires from left and right speakers together.
2. DO NOT ground any speaker wires.
3. DO NOT run wires where they may be pinched or cut.
4. DO NOT leave bare speaker terminals exposed. They may contact the vehicle chassis and
cause a short.
Fuse
When replacing the fuse(s), the replacement fuse must be of the same amperage as shown on
the fuse holder. If the fuse(s) blows more than once, carefully check all electrical connections for
shorted circuitry. Also have your vehicle’s voltage regulator checked. Do not attempt to repair the
unit yourself; return it to your Alpine dealer or nearest Alpine Service Station for servicing.
Temperature
In order to ensure proper performance, be sure the temperature in your vehicle is above 14 F
(–10 C) and below 140 F (60 C) before turning your unit on. Good air circulation is essential to
prevent internal heat build-up in the unit.

ignition source and this terminal. The PXA-H900 can then be turned on using this switch.
The PXA-H900 can be used with any head unit. However, only an Alpine Ai-NET compatible head unit will be able to
take full advantage of all the features and functions of this processor.
• For the ground cord (sold separately) and battery power cord (sold separately), pass the wires through the included

Installing with wires only (no terminals)
The hexagonal screw must be used when installing with wires only (without terminals). We
strongly recommend having connections made by your store of purchase.
If you wish to make connections yourself, read the instructions below carefully and be sure to
connect properly.
• When making connections, be sure to use the included hexagonal screw and hexagonal
wrench.
• For safety, leave the power cord unplugged until all connections have been completed.
• Do not carry the PXA-H900 by its cord. The cord may be damaged and the PXA-H900 may
fall.
1. Check the thickness of the wires.
NOTES:
• Use wires larger than the PXA-H900’s fuse capacity.
• Wire sizes usable with the PXA-H900 are AWG8 to AWG10.
• If you do not know the thickness of the wires, contact your store of purchase, a service shop or/and Alpine service
center.
2. Peel of 7 to 10 mm of the cord’s sheathing (the insulation in vinyl or other material) and expose
the core (the conductor).
Cord
7 to 10 mm
To PXA-H900’s lead terminal
NOTES:
• If the exposed section is too short, the current will not flow properly, resulting in the PXA-H900 not operating or breaks
in the sound.
• Making the exposed section too long may lead to short-circuit.
3. Pass the wire through the terminal board cover.
4. Remove the screw mounted on the PXA-H900. Insert the cord’s core into the lead terminal and
fasten it with the hexagonal screw and hexagonal wrench. The cord should now be securely
fastened.
Hexagon screw
Cord
Lead terminal
NOTE:
Be sure that the cord is fully inside the lead terminal and that not a single wire of its core is sticking out. If even a single
wire is sticking out, this may lead to short-circuit with the vehicle’s body or the PXA-H900, resulting in fire or malfunction.
5. Mount the terminal board cover on the PXA-H900.
