Operating precautions
Operating precautions
<Your CD8443 will perform well over a long period of time through correct
handling and care.>
Notes on operation
• For your safety, play only at volume levels that allow outside sounds to be
heard.
• We recommend using with this player a disc with
the logo shown to the left.
• You can play music CDs(CD-R/CD-RW) on this
player. Be sure to use discs that have been
properly processed.
Depending on the editing equipment used, some
discs may not play properly.
• Do not insert anything other than a CD into the
disc slot.
Do not insert any foreign objects, such as coins or
credit cards, into the disc slot. Be especially
watchful of children’s mischief in this regard.
• Avoid severe mechanical shock.
When the player is subjected to severe vibration
while traveling over a rough surface, playback
may be intermittent. When a situation like this
occurs, resume playback after returning to a
smoother road.
• About dew condensation.
In cold or rainy weather, just as the interior glass
surface gets fogged, dew (water condensation)
may also settle on the deck. When this occurs,
disc playback may become intermittent or
impossible. Dehumidify the air in the vehicle for a
while before resuming playback.
• Cleaning the disc slot.
The disc slot tends to get dusty. Clean it
occasionally to prevent accumulated dust from
scratching the discs.
10
Operating precautions
About compact discs
• The signal recorded on a compact disc is read by a laser beam, so
nothing touches the disc surface. A scratch on the recorded surface or a
badly warped disc may cause deteriorated sound quality or intermittent
playback. Observe the following precautions to ensure high quality sound
performance:
• Do not leave an ejected disc in the disc slot
for very long; the disc may warp. Discs
should be stored in their cases and kept
away from high temperature and humidity.
• Do not stick a piece of paper or tape on, nor
write on or scratch either side of a disc.
• Discs spin at a high speed inside the deck.
Keep cracked or warped discs out of the
player to avoid damaging it.
• Avoid touching the recorded surface when
handling a disc; handle discs by their edges.
11
Operating precautions
About brand new CDs
• You may notice that some brand
new discs are rough around the
center hole or outside edge.
Remove the rough edges with
the side of a ballpoint pen, etc.
Rough edges may prevent
proper loading in the deck.
Flakes from the rough edges
may also stick to the recorded
surface and interfere with
playback.
About CD accessories
• Do not use accessories
(stabilizers, protective seals, laser
lens cleaners, etc.) sold for
“improving sound performance”
or “protecting CDs.” The changes
in CD thickness or outside
dimensions made by these
accessories may cause problems
in the player.
Rough Edges
Ballpoint
pen
Rough
Edges
Flakes
• Please be sure NOT to attach any
ring-shape protector (or other
accessory) to your discs. Those
protectors are commercially
available and said to protect disc
and to improve sound quality
(and antivibration effect), but they
can do more harm than good in
regular uses. The most common
problems are Insert/Eject related
problems and "No playback"
problems due to the protector
ring that came off in the disc
mechanism.
Recorded surface
12
Operating precautions
About borrowed CDs
• Do not use a CD with glue or
remnants of adhesive tape or
labels. They may cause the CD
to get stuck inside or damage
the deck.
About irregularly-shaped CDs
• Specially-shaped CDs, like
heart-shaped or octagonal CDs,
cannot be played. Do not
attempt to play them, even with
an adapter, since they may
damage the player.
How to remove CDs
• When removing the ejected disc,
pull it straight out along the slot.
Pressing downward in the
process may scratch the
recorded surface of the disc.

About cleaning a CD
• Use a commercially available compact disc
cleaner to clean a CD, wiping lightly from the
center to the edge.

• Do not use benzine, thinner, LP record spray
or other cleaners on CDs. They may damage
a CD’s finish.

How to operate the MP3 player
MP3 files can only be played when E-COM is connected.
About MP3
ATTENTION
The making of MP3 files by recording from sources such as
broadcasts, records, recordings, videos and live performances
without permission from the copyright holder for uses other than
personal enjoyment is prohibited.
What is MP3?
MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer III) is a standard format for audio compression
technology. By using MP3, a file can be compressed to one-tenth the size
of the original.
This deck has limitations on MP3 file standards and recorded media and
formats that can be used.
Playable MP3 file standards
• Supported standards: MPEG-1 Audio Layer III
MPEG-2 Audio Layer III
• Supported sampling frequencies: 22.05, 44.1 (kHz)
• Supported bit rate: 8, 16, 24, 32, 40, 48, 56, 64, 80, 96, 112, 128 (kbps)
* Does not support free format.
• Supported channel modes: stereo, joint stereo, monaural
ID3 tags
MP3 files have an "ID3 Tag" that allows input of information so that data
such as song title and artist can be saved.
This deck supports ID3v.1.0 and ID3v.1.1 tags.
48
How to operate the MP3 player
Media
Media capable of playing MP3 includes CD-ROM and CD-R discs.
Compared to CD-ROM media commonly used for music discs, CD-R discs
are fragile in high temperature/high humidity environments and one section
of the CD-R may become incapable of playback. Fingerprints or scratches
on the disc may prevent playback or cause skipping during playback.
Sections of a CD-R may deteriorate if left inside a vehicle for long periods of
time. It is also recommended that CD-R discs be kept in a light-blocking
case because the discs are vulnerable to ultra-violet light.
Format of discs
The format of discs to be used must be ISO9660 Level 1 or Level 2.
Control items for this standard are as follows:
• Maximum characters for folder names/file names: 15
• Allowable characters for folder names/file names: A~Z, 0~9, _ (underscore)
• Number of files possible on a single disc:
65535*1

counted as single files.
*2: A root directory is counted as one folder.
49
How to operate the MP3 player
File names
Only files with the MP3 file extension ".mp3" can be recognized as MP3 and
played. Be sure to save MP3 files with the ".mp3" file extension. The "MP"
letters of the file extension will be recognized whether entered as
uppercase letters or lowercase letters.
Caution
If the ".mp3" file extension is attached to a file other than an
MP3 file, that file will be mistakenly recognized by the deck as
an MP3 file and played, resulting in loud noise output that can
damage the speakers. Be sure to avoid attaching the ".mp3" file
extension to files that are not MP3 files.
Multi-sessions
Multi-sessions are supported, and playing of CD-R disc with annotated MP3
files is possible. However, when "Track at once" has been written, close the
session or process the warning message. Standardize the format of each
session without changing the format.
Playing MP3
When a disc with recorded MP3 files is inserted, the deck first checks all the
files on the disc. Checking of the files will be completed within 10 seconds
of disc insertion, and the first MP3 file will begin playing. If the disc check is
not completed within 10 seconds, the player will go into standby mode. No
sound is output while the deck is checking the files on the disc. It is
recommended that the disc be recorded without files other than MP3 files
and without unnecessary folders in order to speed up the checking of disc
files by the deck.
Display order of MP3 file/folder names
Names of MP3 folders and files within the same level are displayed in the
following order.
1. MP3 folders displayed first, by ascending order of numbers, letters.
2. Files displayed next, by ascending order of numbers, letters.

FM reception characteristics
In general, FM has much better tonal quality than AM. However, FM
and FM stereo reception encounter several characteristic problems
not encountered with AM. FM is more difficult to receive than AM in a
moving vehicle. The following are explanatory notes on what to
expect from FM reception and on how to get satisfactory
performance.
FM RECEPTION DIFFERS FROM AM
A characteristic of transmitted signals is that lower frequencies
travel further. FM frequencies are much higher than AM’s
(similar to a ray of light): they won’t bend but they will reflect.
Often, they will be interrupted by tall buildings, mountains, etc.,
taking direct and indirect paths to your vehicle’s antenna. The
distance at which FM stations can be received satisfactorily is
usually not nearly as far as that which AM stations can be
received.
AM Radio Waves
Ionosphere
FM Radio Waves
Ionosphere
FADING OUT
In weak signal or “fringe” reception areas, FM stations may
fade out completely, or fade in and out. When driving in weak
signal areas, such as near hills, through valleys or tunnels,
among tall buildings, etc., you may encounter unusual noise
interference. THIS IS NOT A TUNER PROBLEM. In this case,
you can only wait until you are in a better reception area, tune
to a stronger station, or reduce the treble level.
64
How to operate the tuner
RECEPTION AREA OF FM BROADCASTS
A home receiver can catch weak FM stereo signals through the
use of a tall, directional or ultra-sensitive antenna. In a moving
vehicle, the area for good reception is limited because of
varying conditions encountered while driving, including the
types and heights of broadcast antenna structures, signal
strength, engine noise, etc. For best reception with manual
antenna, extend the antenna mast as far as possible.
Transmitting Antenna 100 Meters High
Effective Radiation Power 1kW
FM Stereo Auto Radio 20 km
FM Monaural Auto Radio 50 km
Home FM Stereo Receiver 100 km
Reception quality varies depending on the power of the FM
station, natural and artificial barriers,weather conditions, etc.
MULTIPATH
The reflection characteristics of FM waves cause another
problem called multipath–FM wave signals reflecting off of
buildings, mountains, etc. When the antenna receives direct
and reflected waves at the same time, distortion of sound in the
treble range often occurs, such as static or harsh-sounding
voices. THIS IS NOT A TUNER PROBLEM. Only moving to
another area with a clearer signal path can remedy the
situation.

About Sound Adjustment Mode
This unit is equipped with two different sound adjustment modes:
normal mode and pro mode.
In normal mode, the acoustic characteristics inside the vehicle can
be adjusted using comparatively simple settings. In addition, it
corresponds to basic sound systems which comprise front speakers,
rear speakers and an added sub-woofer if necessary.
In pro mode, the sound quality characteristics can be adjusted item
by item using more sophisticated settings than in normal mode. In
addition, the adjustments can be made to suit 3-way speaker system
where the front speaker, rear speaker and non-fader output can be
set to Hi (treble range) Mid (medium range) or Low (bass range).
Refer to the table below and to the operations for each mode for
details of each mode.
The following adjustments can be made in normal mode and pro
mode respectively.

How to operate the Sound Adjustment Mode
GRAPHIC EQUALIZER
The graphic equalizer lets you select from six preset equalizer
modes in accordance with the genre and instruments of the
music being played, and also lets you make fine adjustments
within each mode.
PARAMETRIC EQUALIZER
A variety of materials are used inside a vehicle to manufacture
the seats and windows, and because these materials absorb
and reflect sound in different ways, the parametric equalizer
lets you adjust the peaks and dips of the frequency
characteristics inside the vehicle to compensate for this.
Peak
High
[Sound pressure]
Dip
Low
Low
[Frequency]
High
An "equalizer" is a function that corrects these peaks and dips
in order to flatten the frequency characteristics. However with a
normal graphic equalizer, the median frequency and the Q
(sharpness and band width) are fixed, so that when
neighboring bands are corrected, there is a limit to the amount
by which distortion in the peak and dip characteristics can be
corrected.
A "parametric equalizer" lets you adjust the median frequency,
Q (sharpness and band width) and gain to variable levels, so
that you can make fine adjustments to spot areas of the
frequency band.

When this unit is in normal mode, a single parametric equalizer
function is available in addition to the 13-band graphic
equalizer, so that points that cannot be adjusted using the
graphic equalizer can be corrected using the single-band
parametric equalizer.
In addition, in pro mode, the parametric equalizer can be used
to adjust five bands in the treble to medium range, and five
bands in the medium to bass range.
68
How to operate the Sound Adjustment Mode
TIME ALIGNMENT
With vehicle audio systems, the installation position of the
speakers and the position of the listener mean that the
distances from the listener to the left and right speakers are
almost always different. These differences in the distance from
the listener to each speaker in turn means that the time taken
for the sound to reach the listener is different for each speaker.
The result of this is that the phases of each speaker (biases)
become mismatched and the sound becomes unnatural, as
though the sound stage is not wide enough.
The "time alignment" function corrects the time taken for the
sound waves to reach the listener in order to set the optimum
phase for the listening position so that the sound becomes
more expansive as though it is being listened to on a sound
stage.
The basic adjustment method involves measuring the actual
distances to each speaker and calculating the differences in
distance relative to the most distant speaker in order to derive
the delay time for the sound from each speaker.
When this unit is in normal mode, a simplified time alignment
function is available. You can use this function to adjust only
four parameters (position selector, vehicle type, tweeter
settings and rear speaker position settings), and so you can
make basic time alignment settings without measuring the
actual distances to each speaker. In addition, in pro mode you
can adjust the time delays and levels for each individual
speaker based on the actual speaker layout.
69
How to operate the Sound Adjustment Mode
CROSSOVER
The frequency band that is stored by audio media such as CDs
is a fairly wide range from 20 Hz to 20 kHz, and it is difficult for
a single speaker to be able to play back all frequencies in such
a wide range.
Because of this, several speakers can be used, with different
frequency bands (such as treble, medium and bass) allotted to
each speaker so that wide frequency ranges can be played
back.
The "Crossover" function is used to allot the frequency ranges
that are to be played back by each speaker in accordance with
the installed speaker units and the layout of the speakers, in
order to obtain the maximum level of performance from the
speakers and to provide the most stable frequency
characteristics.
The crossover function includes a high-pass filter (HPF) for
playing back treble sounds, and a low-pass filter (LPF) for
playing back bass sounds. In addition, the HPF and LPF are
used in combination in order to play back sounds in the
medium range.
-3dB
Bass range
20Hz
Medium range
fc1(LPF) fc2(HPF)
Treble range
fc3(LPF) fc4(HPF)
20kHz
fc*: Cutoff frequency
For example, when adjusting the HPF, frequencies that are
lower than the specified frequency are progressively
dampened, rather than simply not being played back at all.
The "slope" adjustment function is the function that is used to
adjust these dampening characteristics.
The slope characteristics of a filter are such that with larger
slope values (for example 12 dB/oct), the slope becomes
steeper, and so the amount of sound mixing in with
neighboring bands becomes less so that only the target band
is played back. However, it also causes the merging of sound
between speakers to become poorer and can result in greater
distortion.
70
How to operate the Sound Adjustment Mode
• The crossover function is a filter that allocates specified
frequency bands.
• A high-pass filter (HPF) is a filter that cuts out frequencies
that are lower than the specified frequency (bass range) and
allows higher frequencies (treble range) to pass through.
• A low-pass filter (LPF) is a filter that cuts out frequencies that
are higher than the specified frequency (treble range) and
allows lower frequencies (bass range) to pass through.
• The slope is the signal level at which frequencies that are one
octave higher or one octave lower are dampened.
The larger the slope value, the greater is the slope. In
addition, when "PASS" is selected, the slope is eliminated
(sound does not pass through the filters), so that the
crossover function has no effect.
When this unit is in normal mode, it corresponds to basic
speaker systems which comprise front speakers, rear speakers
and an added sub-woofer if necessary. In such cases, the
crossover can be used to apply the HPF to the front and rear
speakers and the LPF to the sub-woofer so that the sound from
all speakers merges properly.
In addition, in pro mode, the adjustments can be made to suit
speaker system where the front speaker, rear speaker and
non-fader output can be switched between Hi, Mid or Low
output and the speakers can be combined according to each
range (treble range: tweeter, medium range: Mid, bass range:
woofer) to provide 3-way playback. In this case, the crossover
function can be used to adjust the playback ranges so that the
HPF is applied to the treble-range speakers, the HPF and LPF
is applied to the medium-range speakers, and the LPF is
applied to the bass-range speakers so that the sound from all
speakers merges properly.

MP3 HARMONIZER
When original sounds are converted to MP3 format, frequency
ranges that are not normally audible to the human ear are
compressed. The MP3 harmonizer can be used to play back
these compressed sounds at as close to their original form as
possible so that clear and powerful sound can be enjoyed.
NON-FADER PHASE
The sounds that are output from woofers include sounds that
are in the same frequency ranges that are output from the front
and rear speakers, and under the various conditions that can
occur inside vehicle compartments, some of these sounds may
cancel each other out. This phenomenon can be eliminated by
changing the phase of the woofer.
The phase of the woofer can be set to normal timing (in which
the output timing between the front and rear speakers and the
woofer is the same) or reverse timing (in which the output
timing between the front and rear speakers and the woofer is
different), depending on the vehicle compartment conditions.

PARAMETRIC EQUALIZER ADJUSTMENT (PEQ)
Mid-Band (Group-1) Parametric adjustment in 5-Bands of 25
Frequencies.
Hi-Band (Group-2) Parametric adjustment in 5-Bands of 20
Frequencies.
Eclipse has by default assigned arbitrary frequencies for each
of the 5-Bands (Hi/Mid for 10 parametric bands total).
ATTENTION
Frequencies in each group (Mid-Group or Hi-Group) cannot be
duplicated (repeated).
Release a frequency from its location, before it can be reassignment (available again for use in another band).
Example: If you want the Hi-Group H-1 location to have a
parametric frequency of 1.25kHz.
Because this frequency is in use by M-5 you must first assign
M5 a new frequency, this will release the band for use in the
Hi-Group H1 at 1.25kHz.
