About MP3/WMA/AAC
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2.2.0, v2.3.0 and WMA
tag. The following files do not support compression, coding,
grouping or non-synchronization.
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 and the underscore. For non-supported characters,
“NO SUPPORT” is displayed.
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.
Do not make a file’s playback time more than 1 hour.
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.
Playing back MP3/WMA/AAC
MP3/WMA/AAC files are prepared, and then written to USB
memory. Or, synchronize an MP3/WMA file using Windows
Media Player (Ver. 7.1, 8, 9, 9.1, 9.2), and then forward to the
Portable audio player.
A USB memory device can hold up to 10,000 files/1000 folders
(including Root Folders). Playback may not be performed if a
USB memory / Portable audio player device exceeds the
limitations described above.
Do not make a file’s playback time more than 1 hour.
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?
Media supported
AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding,” and is a
basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.
This device can play back USB memory / Portable audio player
media.
What is WMA?
Corresponding File Systems
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 by using MP3/WMA/AAC specified
software. For details on creating MP3/WMA/AAC files, refer to
the user’s manual for that software.
MP3/WMA/AAC file extensions that can be played back on the

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 is found at the top of the file system. The root folder
contains all folders and files.
AAC
Sampling rates: 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz
Bit rates:
8 - 576 kbps
This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling
rates.
The playback time may not be correctly displayed when a VBR
(Variable Bit Rate) recorded file is played back.

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 even in cars
with a lot of road noise.
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):
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 car 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.
5.1ms
0.5m
2.25m
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
Adjust the time correction level of each speaker to almost the same level.
1
2
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
correction value to the farthest speaker and the
other speakers.
L = (distance to farthest speaker) – (distance to other
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.

• 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.

About IMPRINT
INTRODUCING IMPRINT
These acoustical problems are so severe that no correction system has
been able to overcome them. Until now, with the introduction of
IMPRINT, Alpine provides a hardware/software combination that not
only solves these problems, it actually improves the sound stage, tonal
balance and definition - and does it automatically, in a matter of
minutes!
VISION VS. REALITY
All good music starts as an artist’s vision. After countless hours of
rehearsing, recording and mixing, that vision is ready for us to hear on
discs, radio and other media. But do we hear it as the artist created it?
Unfortunately, the reality is that we are almost never able to listen to it
in the exact way the artist intended. Especially when we are listening in
a car.
CARS ARE TERRIBLE LISTENING SPACES
Car interiors are full of materials that obstruct and degrade sound
quality. For example, windows amplify and reflect high frequencies.
Seat and dashboard coverings change certain frequencies. Carpets
absorb and suppress mid frequencies. Graphic and parametric EQs are
only partial remedies for these problems. In addition, the speakers are
not located at equal distances from listeners, creating an unbalanced,
uncentred sound stage. Time correction can help fix this, but only for
one listening position.
HOW IMPRINT IS DIFFERENT
IMPRINT using MultEQ is superior to other equalisation systems in
five ways.
• It is the only system that measures the entire listening area,
capturing time domain information from each listening
location and applying a proprietary method for processing it
to represent all seat locations. This gives the people in each
seat the optimal listening experience.
• It corrects both time and frequency problems, for an
improved soundstage and smoother, more natural sound.
• It uses dynamic frequency allocation to apply hundreds of
points of correction to those areas where the sound problems
are greatest.
• It determines optimized blending points for low frequency
crossovers.
• It provides, in minutes, vehicle sound tuning that generally
takes skilled professionals days to accomplish.

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 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 DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES.
DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR
DUST.
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.
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.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING
SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.
Precautions
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.
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your iDA-X303. 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 iDA-X303 to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the iDA-X303 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 iDA-X303 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.
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.
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.
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.
