PRECAUTIONS
Installation Location
Never Attempt the Following
Make sure the CDA-9855/CDA-9853 will not be installed in a
location subjected to:
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.
•
•
•
•
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.
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.
INCORRECT
CORRECT
Disc Cleaning
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
Outside
(Bumps)
Irregular Shaped Discs
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.
Disc Accessories
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.
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.

About MP3/WMA
CAUTION
Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/
WMA 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.
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

Press and hold
for at least 2 seconds in the CD/
Changer/MP3/WMA mode to activate Quick Search
mode.
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.
Within 10 seconds, select the track (file) to play
back by sliding your finger on the GlideTouch bar
to the left or right.
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.
The selected track is played back immediately.
• Quick Search mode is cancelled by pressing and holding
for at
least 2 seconds.
• Tracks (files) are skipped continuously by touching and holding
either side of the GlideTouch bar.
• You can speed up your search by moving your finger quickly on the
GlideTouch bar to skip tracks (files).
Producing MP3/WMA discs
MP3/WMA files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CDRW 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.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CDRs, and CD-RWs.

13-EN
Corresponding File Systems
Terminology
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 files
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.

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.

About the Crossover
Crossover:
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.

• HPF (high pass filter): Cuts the lower frequencies and allows the
higher frequencies to pass.
• LPF (low pass filter): Cuts the higher frequencies and allows the
lower frequencies to pass.
• 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.

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 × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
Press and hold MENU for at least 2 seconds.
Select the Crossover (X-OVER) mode by sliding
your finger on the GlideTouch bar to the left or
right. Press the GlideTouch bar under the
Crossover (X-Over) mode.
Press FUNC. or the GlideTouch bar to activate
the preset mode.
Select any one of the preset numbers (1 through 6)
by sliding your finger on the GlideTouch bar to

the desired preset to recall the stored contents.
Press and hold MENU for at least 2 seconds to
return to normal mode.
• If MENU is pressed while adjusting or setting the itmes in the
MENU mode, the unit will return to the previous selection secreen.
• By pressing the GlideTouch bar under RETURN in the MENU
mode, the unit will return to the normal mode.
About Time Correction
*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
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, the CDA-9855/CDA-9853 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 0.1 ms steps.
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)
3
Divide 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.
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.
Continued
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").

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.
Warning
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
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.
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.
(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.
IMPORTANT
Please record the serial number of your unit in the space provided
below and keep it as a permanent record. The serial number plate is
located on the bottom of the unit.
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-9855/CDA-9853. 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-9855/CDA-9853 to the
fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the
CDA-9855/CDA-9853 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-9855/CDA-9853 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.
