FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
WARNING
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in serious
injury or death.
INSTALL THE PRODUCT CORRECTLY SO THAT THE
DRIVER CANNOT WATCH TV/VIDEO UNLESS THE VEHICLE
IS STOPPED AND THE EMERGENCY BRAKE IS APPLIED.
It is dangerous (and illegal in many states) for the driver to watch
TV/Video while driving a vehicle. Installing this product
incorrectly enables the driver to watch TV/Video while driving.
This may cause a distraction, preventing the driver from looking
ahead, thus causing an accident. The driver or other people could
be severely injured.
DO NOT WATCH VIDEO WHILE DRIVING.
Watching the video may distract the driver from looking ahead of
the vehicle and cause an accident.
DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR
ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR
VEHICLE.
Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only
be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the
vehicle in a safe location before performing these functions.
Failure to do so may result in an accident.
KEEP THE VOLUME AT A LEVEL WHERE YOU CAN STILL
HEAR OUTSIDE NOISE WHILE DRIVING.
Failure to do so may result in an accident.
MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.
Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of
the vehicle and cause an accident.
DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER.
Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
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.

REACH OF CHILDREN.
Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed,
consult a physician immediately.

Use for other than its designed application may result in fire,
electric shock or other injury.
DO NOT PLACE HANDS, FINGERS OR FOREIGN OBJECTS
IN INSERTION SLOTS OR GAPS.
Doing so may result in personal injury or damage to the product.

Failure to do so may result in personal injury or damage to the
product.
PRECAUTIONS
Product Cleaning
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.
Temperature
Be sure the temperature inside the vehicle is between +45°C
(+113°F) and 0°C (+32°F) before turning your unit on.
New Discs
As a protective measure to prevent the disc from jamming, the
DVD 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 ball-point pen
or other such instrument, then insert the disc again.
Center Hole

Moisture Condensation
You may notice the disc playback sound wavering due to
condensation. If this happens, remove the disc from the player
and wait about an hour for the moisture to evaporate.
Damaged Disc
Do not attempt to play cracked, warped, or damaged discs.
Playing a bad disc could severely damage the playback
mechanism.
Maintenance
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.

Correct Handling
Never Attempt the Following
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.
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.
Irregular Shaped Discs
Be sure to use round shaped discs only for this unit and never use
any special shaped discs.
Use of special shaped discs may cause damage to the mechanism.
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

CORRECT
Disc Cleaning
Fingerprints, dust, or soil on the surface of the disc could cause
the DVD 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
operational problems. We recommend not using these accessories
on discs played in Alpine DVD players.

Alpine products equipped with the Ai-NET bus, connected to the
IVA-D300, can be operated from the IVA-D300. Depending on
the products connected, the functions and displays will vary. For
details, consult your Alpine dealer.
Remove the anti-theft cover when you drive. This prevents the
cover from falling off the unit and interfering with the safe
operation of the vehicle.
Operation of some of the functions of this unit is very complex.
Because of this, it was deemed necessary to place these functions
into a special screen. This will restrict operation of these
functions to times when the vehicle is parked. This ensures the
focus of the driver's attention will be on the road and not on the
IVA-D300. This has been done for the safety of the driver and
passengers.
Title Input and Audio Processor Adjustments cannot be made if
the car is moving. The car must be parked and the parking brake
must be engaged for the procedure described in the Owner's
Manual to be valid. The warning "CAN'T OPERATE WHILE
DRIVING," will be displayed if any attempts are made to
perform these operations while driving.
This operation is the same as when selecting sources using the
remote control. When the car is parked, the selection is made as
described in the Owner's Manual.

ALL
Video CDs
This DVD head unit is compatible with playback control (PBC)
compatible video CDs (version 2.0).
“PBC” is a function by which you can use menu screens recorded
on the disc to find the scene you want to watch and view various
types of information in dialog style.
Using compact discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)
If you use unspecified compact discs, correct performance cannot
be guaranteed.
You can play CD-Rs (CD-Recordable)/CD-RWs (CDReWritable) which have been recorded only on audio devices.
You can also play CD-Rs/CD-RWs containing MP3/WMA
formatted audio files.
• Some of the following discs may not play on this unit:
Flawed discs, discs with fingerprints, discs exposed to extreme
temperatures or sunlight (e.g., left in the car or this unit), discs
recorded under unstable conditions, discs on which a recording
failed or a re-recording was attempted, copy-protected CDs
which do not conform to the audio CD industry standard.
• Use discs with MP3/WMA files written in a format compliant
with this unit. For details, see pages 15 and 16.
To customers using CD-R/CD-RW
• If a CD-R/CD-RW cannot be played back, make sure the last
recording session was closed (finalized).
• Finalize the CD-R/CD-RW if necessary, and attempt playback
again.
Tips for making your own CDs
The IVA-D300 plays DVD Video, Video CD, Audio CD and has a
built in MP3/WMA decoder.
The following information is designed to help you create your
own music CDs (either Audio CD or MP3/WMA encoded CD-R/
RW files).
What is the difference between an Audio and MP3/WMA
CD?
An Audio CD is the same format as the commercial CDs you buy
in the store (also known as CD-DA). MP3 (MPEG-1 Audio Layer
3)/WMA (Windows Media Audio) is a data file that uses a
compression scheme to reduce the size of the music file.*
Hybrid Audio CD and Data (MP3/WMA) CD-R/RW discs:
The IVA-D300 can read either sector on the disc. Choose CD-DA
to play the CD audio section or MP3/WMA to play the MP3/
WMA section.*
Multisession CD-R/RW:
Once a recording has been stopped, this is considered one
session. If the disc is not closed (finalized), additional data may
be added. Once this additional data has been recorded, this
becomes a “multisession” CD. The IVA-D300 can only read
multisession DATA Formatted discs (MP3/WMA files - Not
Audio CD files).
MP3 ID3 Tag/WMA Tag Information:
The IVA-D300 read and displays MP3 ID3v1 tag or WMA tag
information. MP3 files created with ID3v2 tag information can be
played back but the tag info cannot be read or displayed.
Properly formatted MP3/WMA Discs:
Use ISO9660 formatting to insure proper playback. You may use
standard ISO naming Level 1 (8.3 DOS standard), Level 2 (32
characters) or Joliet (Windows or Macintosh long filenames) file
naming conventions*.
*Please consult the Owner’s manual for additional information.
On handling compact discs (CD/CD-R/CD-RW)
•
•
•
•
•
•
Do not touch the surface.
Do not expose the disc to direct sunlight.
Do not affix stickers or labels.
Clean the disc when it is dusty.
Make sure that the disc is smooth and flat.
Do not use commercially available disc accessories.
Do not leave the disc in the car or the unit for a long time.
Never expose the disc to direct sunlight.
Heat and humidity may damage the disc and you may not be
able to play it again.
Using DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs
• This unit is compatible only with discs recorded in the DVDVideo mode.
Discs recorded in the DVD-VR mode cannot be played back.
• Note that discs not finalized (processed to enable to play on
playback-only DVD players) cannot be played on this DVD
player.
• Some discs may not play back, depending on the recording
device. (This unit has a copy protection function. Discs copied
illegally will not be played back. Some files recorded by a
software using an improper recording system may be
recognized as illegally copied.)
• In the following cases, the disc may not play on this unit:
discs recorded by certain DVD recorders, certain irregular
discs, flawed discs, dirty discs, when the pickup lens of this
DVD player is dirty, or when moisture condensation has
occurred inside the unit.
• Be sure to follow all cautions included with your DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs discs.
• Do not put stickers, seals, or tape on the label side of DVD-Rs/
DVD-RWs.
• Compared to the regular discs, DVD-Rs/DVD-RWs are more
affected by heat, moisture, and direct sunlight. If left in a car,
etc., damage may occur and it might not play on this unit.

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?

*4 Display may vary depending on the connected devices.
Selecting Folders (concerning MP3/WMA)
Touch [F.DN] or [F.UP] to select the folder.
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 and 8 are supported)
Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates

This device may not play back correctly depending on
sampling rates or bit rates.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
This device supports ID3 tag v1, 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
MP3/WMA files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CDRW using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold up to 255
files/255 folders (including Root Folders).
Depending on the structure of the folders or files, it may take
time to read a disc. In this case, it is recommended to
decrease the number of folders or files.
Media supported
The media that this device can play back are CD-ROMs, CDRs and CD-RWs.

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.

Adjusting and Storing/Recalling the Parametric EQ
The frequency bands of the graphic equalizer are fixed. This makes it
very difficult to correct for undesired peaks and dips at specific
frequencies. The parametric equalizer’s center frequency can be tuned
to these specific frequencies. Then, the bandwidth (Q) and level are
fine-tuned, independently, to make the necessary corrections. The
parametric equalizer function is an advanced tool for serious
audiophiles.

About the 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 left ear.
To correct this, the IVA-D300 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.

Tips
* Subwoofer speaker
You cannot change the time correction value for the
subwoofer, but you can set the subwoofer's apparent position
to the front by adjusting the time correction value of the front
and rear speakers.
For details, refer to the “Tips” on page 39.
Here we calculate the time correction value for the front left
speaker in the diagram 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** × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
** Speed of sound: 343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C
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").
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.
In other words, giving the front left speaker a time correction
value of 5.1 ms makes it seem as if the distance to the front left
speaker is the same as the distance to the farthest speaker.
Continued
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.
37-EN
Example 2. Listening Position: All Seats
Adjust the time correction level of each speaker to almost the
same level.
1 Sit in the listening position (driver’s seat, etc.) and
measure the distance (in meters) between your head
and the various speakers.
2 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.

This value is the time correction value for the various
speakers.
Concrete examples
Calculating the time correction value for the front left speaker
on the diagram below.
Conditions:
Distance between farthest speaker and listening position:
2.25 m (88-3/4")
Distance between front left speaker and listening position:
0.5 m (20")
Calculation:
L = 2.25 m (88-3/4") – 0.5 m (20")= 1.75 m (68-3/4")
Compensation time = 1.75 ÷ 343 x 1000 = 5.1 (ms)
In other words, setting the time correction value for the front
left speaker to 5.1 (ms) sets a virtual distance matching the
distance to the farthest speaker.

Terminology
Dolby Digital
Dolby Digital is a digital audio compression technology
developed by Dolby Laboratories that allows large quantities
of audio data to be efficiently recorded on discs. It is
compatible with audio signals from mono (1 channel) all the
way up to 5.1-channel surround sound. The signals for the
different channels are completely independent, and since the
sound is high quality digital there is no loss of sound quality.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H510/PXAH900/PXA-H700, etc.) is required to enjoy full 5.1-channel
surround sound.
The IVA-D300 performs Dolby Digital decoding when it outputs
analog audio signals, it just happens to be 2-channel audio not
5.1-channel.
Dolby Pro Logic
Dolby Pro Logic is the technology used to decode programs
encoded in Dolby Surround. Pro logic decoding will provide
you with four channels of sound (front left/right, center and
monaural rear surround) from a 2-channel (stereo) source.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H510/PXAH900) is required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic surround sound.
Dolby Pro Logic II
Dolby Pro Logic II plays 2-channel sources in 5 channels over
the entire frequency range.
This is done with an advance, high sound quality matrix
surround decoder which draws out the spatial properties of the
original recording without adding any sounds to or changing
the sound of the source.
* The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H700, etc.) is
required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound.

DTS
This is a home-use digital sound format of the DTS Sound
System. This is a high quality sound system, developed by
Digital Theater Systems Corp for use in movie theaters.
DTS has six independent sound tracks. The theater
presentation is fully realized in the home and other settings.
DTS is the abbreviation for Digital Theater System.
* To enjoy DTS surround sound you need the separately sold DTS
digital audio processor (PXA-H900/PXA-H700, etc.). The DVD
video software must also have a DTS sound track.
The IVA-D300 has a built-in DTS 2-channel audio decoder.
Analog audio outputs are available.
58-EN
LPCM is a signal recording format used for music CDs.
Whereas music CDs are recorded at 44.1 kHz/16 bits, DVDs
are recorded at 48 kHz/16 bits to 96 kHz/24 bits, thereby
achieving higher sound quality than music CDs.
Rating levels (parental lock)
This is a function of the DVD for restricting the viewing age as
stipulated by laws in different countries. The way in which
viewing is restricted differs from DVD to DVD. Sometimes the
DVD cannot be played at all, other times certain scenes are
skipped, and other times certain scenes are replaced with
other scenes.

Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 4 to 6 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 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.
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.
66-EN
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 wires 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 IVA-D300. 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 IVA-D300 to the fuse box, make
sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the IVA-D300 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 IVA-D300 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.
• The Display must be completely retracted in the casing when
installing. If it is not, problems may occur.
• When installing in automobiles, make sure the Display can
open/close without coming in contact with the gear shift .
