Warning

Observe the following warnings when using this unit.

The driver should neither watch the display nor

operate the system while driving.

Watching the display or operating the system will distract the driver from looking ahead of the vehicle and can cause accidents. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location and use the parking brake before watching the display or operating the system.

Use the proper power supply.

This product is designed for operation with a negative grounded 12 V DC battery system. Never operate this product with other battery systems, especially a 24 V DC battery system.

Keep batteries and insulation film out of reach of

infants.

Batteries and insulation film can be ingested, so keep them out of the reach of infants. If an infant ingests a battery or insulation film, please seek immediate medical attention.

nel.

When the fuse burns out, eliminate the cause and have it replaced with the fuse prescribed for this unit by a qualified service engineer. Incorrect replacement of the fuse may lead to smoke, fire, and damage to the product.

Observe the following warnings when installing.

Disconnect the lead from the negative (–) battery

terminal before installation.

Wiring and installation with the negative (–) battery terminal connected may cause electrical shock and injury due to a short circuit.

Some cars equipped with the electrical safety system have specific procedures of battery terminal disconnection.

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE PROCEDURE MAY LEAD TO THE

UNINTENDED ACTIVATION OF THE ELECTRICAL SAFETY

SYSTEM RESULTING IN DAMAGE TO THE VEHICLE AND

PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.

Never use safety-related components for installa-

tion, grounding, and other such functions.

Do not use safety-related vehicle components (fuel tank, brake, suspension, steering wheel, pedals, airbag, etc.) for wiring or fixing the product or its accessories.

Installing the product on the air bag cover or in a

location where it interferes with airbag operation is prohibited.

Check for piping, gasoline tank, electric wiring, and

other items before installing the product.

Never install the product in a location where it inter-

feres with your field of vision.

Never have the power cord branched to supply other

equipment with power.

After installation and wiring, you should check the

normal operation of other electrical equipment.

The continuation of their using in abnormal conditions may cause fire, electrical shock or a traffic accident.

In the case of installation to an airbag-equipping

car, confirm warnings and cautions of the vehicle manufacturer before installation.

Make sure the leads do not interfere with driving or

getting in and out of the vehicle.

Insulate all exposed wires to prevent short circuit-

ing.

CQ-C9901U/C9801U/C9701U

Features

Full Digital CD Receiver

The CQ-C9901U/C9801U/C9701U uses Radio DSP for digital conversion and processing of FM/AM signals, and a digital amp to provide amplification of the digital data.

With this technology, Panasonic achieves full digital processing of radio and CD signals from input to speaker output. This means faithful reproduction of the original sound.

Radio DSP

By digitally converting and processing FM/AM broadcast signals, this greatly reduces adjacent interference and multipath distortion.

A radio's IF filter has the job of preventing neighboring broadcast frequencies from interfering with reception of your desired station. Panasonic's Radio DSP uses an advanced algorithm to perform this task with digital control. It maintains the optimum balance between noise suppression and sound quality by automatically adjusting the IF filter bandwidth in response to the changing interference characteristics as you drive.

Note: If you enable CS Auto, the following functions are automatically disabled:

SQ, POSITION, BASS/TREBLE, BALANCE/FADER, SUB-

WOOFER LEVEL, LPF, HPF, SBC-SW

SQ (Sound Quality)

You have six preset modes (FLAT, POP, ROCK, VOCAL,

JAZZ, CLUB). You can customize your settings for these

(except FLAT) and save them for instant recall.

SQ9 (9-Band Sound Quality)

Center frequency and level are adjustable in each of nine bands. This lets you fine tune sound quality for each genre to suit car-interior acoustics and your personal preferences. ( a page 18)

What is MP3/WMA?

MP3 (MPEG Audio Layer-3) and WMA (Windows Media TM

Audio) are the compression formats of digital audio. The former is developed by MPEG (Motion Picture Experts

Group), and the latter is developed by Microsoft

Corporation. Using these compression formats, you can record the contents of about 10 music CDs on a single

CD media (This figures refer to data recorded on a

650MB CD-R or CD-RW at a fixed bit rate of 128 kbps and a sampling frequency of 44.1 kHz).

Displayable length of file name/folder name: within 64 characters.

¡

Name files and folders in accordance with the standard of each file system. Refer to the instructions of writing software for details.

¡ ASCII character set and special characters in each language can be displayed.

Points to remember when making MP3/WMA files

Common

¡ High bit rate and high sampling frequency are recommended for high quality sound.

¡ Selecting VBR (Variable Bit Rate) is not recommended because playing time is not displayed properly and sound may be skipped.

¡ The playback sound quality differs depending on the encoding circumstances. For details, refer to the user manual of your own encoding software and writing software.

MP3

¡

It is recommended to set the bit rate to “128 kbps or more” and “fixed”.

WMA

¡ It is recommended to set the bit rate to “64 kbps or more” and “fixed”.

¡ Do not set the copy protect attribute on the WMA file to enable this unit to play back.

ASCII character set

A to Z, a to z, digits 0 to 9, and the following symbols:

(space) ! ” # $ % & ’ ( ) * + , - . / : ; < = > ? @ [ \ ] ˆ

_ ` { | } ~

Notes:

¡ With some software in which MP3/WMA format files have been encoded, the character information may not be displayed properly.

¡

Undisplayable characters and symbols will be converted into an asterisk (

*

).

¡

It is recommended that the length of the file name is less than 8 (excluding the file extension).

Caution: Never assign the “.mp3”, or

“.wma” file name extension to a file that is not in the MP3/WMA format. This may not only produce noise from the speaker damage, but also damage your hearing.

28

CQ-C9901U/C9801U/C9701U

Recording MP3/WMA files on a CD-media

¡

You are recommended to minimize the chances of making a disc that contains both CD-DA files and

MP3/WMA files.

¡

If CD-DA files are on the same disc as MP3 or WMA files, the songs may not play in the intended order, or some songs may not play at all.

¡

When storing MP3 data and WMA data on the same disc, use different folders for each data.

¡ Do not record files other than MP3/WMA files and unnecessary folder on a disc.

¡ The name of MP3/WMA file should be added by rules as shown in the following descriptions and also comply with the rules of each file system.

¡ The file extension “.mp3” or “.wma” should be assigned to each file depending on the file format.

¡ You may encounter trouble in playing MP3/WMA files or displaying the information of MP3/WMA files recorded with certain writing software or CD recorders.

¡ This unit does not have the play list function.

¡ Although Multi-session recording is supported, the use of Disc-at-Once is recommended.

Supported file systems
