PRECAUTIONS
Installation Location
Product Cleaning
Make sure the CDA-9847 will not be installed in a location
subjected to:
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.

Never Attempt the Following
Correct Handling
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.
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.
Direct sun and heat
High humidity and water
Excessive dust
Excessive vibrations
CORRECT
INCORRECT
CORRECT
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
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.
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.
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 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
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.

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 WMA?
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio,” is compressed audio
data.
WMA allows you to create music files and store them at higher
ratios of compression than MP3 audio data (approx. half
original size). This is achieved while still maintaining CD
quality sound.
Method for creating MP3/WMA files
Audio data is compressed by using MP3/WMA specified
software. For details on creating MP3/WMA files, refer to the
user's manual for that software.
MP3/WMA files that can be played back by this device have
the file extension “mp3” / “wma”. Files with no extension
cannot be played back. (WMA ver. 7.1, 8 and 9 are
supported)
Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates
MP3
Sampling rates : 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz, 24 kHz,
22.05 kHz, 16 kHz, 12 kHz, 11.025 kHz,
8 kHz
Bit rates:
8 - 320 kbps
Variable Bit rate : 8 - 320 kbps
WMA
Sampling rates : 48 kHz, 44.1 kHz, 32 kHz
Bit rates:
48 - 192 kbps
Variable Bit rate : 48 - 320 kbps
Note that for sampling rates, this device’s frame display (Page
14) may not display correctly.
This device may not play back correctly depending on
sampling rates.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1 and v2, and WMA tag.
If tag data is in an MP3/WMA 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, “NO
SUPPORT” is displayed.
The tag information may not be correctly displayed,
depending on the contents.

Producing MP3/WMA discs
Terminology
MP3/WMA files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or
CD-RW using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to
510 files/folders (including Root Folders). However, the
maximum number of folders is 255.
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.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs,
CD-Rs, and CD-RWs.
Corresponding File Systems
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.
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.
Order of tracks
The unit plays the files in the order that the writing software
writes them. Therefore, the playing order may not be the same
as the order you input. The playback order of the folders and
files is as follows. However, the folder and file playback order
differs from the folder no. and file no. indicated on the display.

MP3/WMA File
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 files.
MP3: ID3 tag
WMA: WMA tag
Root folder
The root folder is found at the top of the file system. The root folder
contains all folders and files.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 to 5 of this manual thoroughly
for proper use.
Caution
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.
USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.
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.
Warning
(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.
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 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 GEARSHIFT.
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
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.
Precautions
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDA-9847. 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 CDA-9847 to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the CDA-9847 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-9847 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.
