2-EN
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
Installation Location
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.
Make sure the CDA-7969R will not be installed in a
location subjected to:
•
•
•
•
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
Correct Handling
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.
Inserting Discs
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. Your player will automatically eject any disc that is
inserted incorrectly. If the player continues to eject a
correctly inserted disc, push the RESET switch with a
pointed object such as a ball-point 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.
CORRECT
INCORRECT
CORRECT
New Discs
As a protective measure to prevent the CD from jamming,
the CD player will automatically eject discs with irregular
surfaces or inserted incorrectly. When a new disc is
inserted into the player and ejected after initial loading,
using your finger, 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 ball-point pen or other
such instrument, then insert the disc again.

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 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.

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.
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.

Selecting DHE Mode
Using digital signal processing technology, DHE
(Digital Harmonics Enhancer) operates on
harmonic components which determine tone and
coloration of the musical instruments. The
process operates independently on individual
frequency bands, so each instrument or vocal will
be distinct. Play back clarity is enhanced to
compensate for road noises which would normally
detract from the listener's enjoyment.

Adjusting the Time Correction
Time Correction:
The distance between the listener and the speakers in
a car vary widely due to the special conditions of the
mobile environment. 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, the CDA-7969R 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 a
step of 0.1 mS.
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.
0.5 m
(19-11/16")
In other words, giving the front right tweeter a time
correction value of 5.1 ms makes it seem as if the distance
to the front right tweeter is the same as the distance to the
farthest speaker.
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 right speaker
and the rear left speaker is 1.75 m (68-7/8").
Time correction eliminates the differences in the time
required for the sound to reach the listening position.
The time of the front right 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.
2
4
5
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 to
the farthest speaker and the other speakers.
L = (distance to farthest speaker) – (distance to
other speakers)
Divid the distances calculated for the speakers
by the speed of sound (343 m/s (765 mph) at
20˚C).
These values are the time correction values for
the different speakers.
Press the Digital Time Correction button for at
least 2 seconds to switch to the Time correction
adjusting mode.
Select a speaker to be adjusted by pressing the
Preset buttons (F1 through F6) button within
10 seconds of step 4.
F1: F/L (Front Left Speaker)
F2: F/R (Front Right Speaker)

5.1 ms
2.25 m

Here we calculate the time correction value for the front
right tweeter in the diagram at the left.
Conditions:
Farthest Speaker – listening position: 2.25 m (88-9/16")
Front right tweeter – listening postion: 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* × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
*Speed of sound: 343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please
read the following and pages 2 and 3 of this
manual thoroughly for proper use.
Warning
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.
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.
(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.
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.
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 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 INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH
MOISTURE OR DUST.
DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.
Precautions
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.
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.
KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERY 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.
28-EN
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.
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post
before installing your CDA-7969R. This will reduce any
chance of damage to the unit in case of a short-circuit.

intended circuit of the CDA-7969R 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 CDA-7969R 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.
