WARNING
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.
WARNING
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in serious injury
or death.
USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING
FUSES.
Failure to do so may result in fire or electric shock.
DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS.
Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire.
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 NOISES WHILE DRIVING.
Excessive volume levels that obscure sounds such as emergency
vehicle sirens or road warning signals (train crossings, etc.) can be
dangerous and may result in an accident. LISTENING AT LOUD
VOLUME LEVELS IN A CAR MAY ALSO CAUSE HEARING
DAMAGE.
MINIMIZE DISPLAY VIEWING WHILE DRIVING.
Viewing the display may distract the driver from looking ahead of
the vehicle and cause an accident.
USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS.
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.
CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in injury or
material property damage.
HALT USE IMMEDIATELY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS.
Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the
product. Return it to your authorized Alpine dealer or the nearest
Alpine Service Center for repairing.
KEEP FINGERS AWAY WHILE THE MOTORIZED FRONT
PANEL OR MOVING MONITOR IS IN MOTION.
Failure to do so may result in personal injury or damage to the
product.
DO NOT MIX NEW BATTERIES WITH OLD BATTERIES.

and –) as instructed. Rupture or chemical leakage from the battery
may cause fire or personal injury.
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.

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
To prevent the CD from jamming, “DISC ERROR” is displayed if
discs with irregular surfaces are inserted or if discs are inserted
incorrectly. When a new disc is ejected immediately after initial
loading, use your finger to 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.

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.
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
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.
“DISC ERROR” will be displayed on your player if you insert a
disc incorrectly. If “DISC ERROR” continues to be displayed even
though the disc has been inserted correctly, 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.
6-EN
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.
Discs Playable on This Unit
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-W203, can be operated from the IVA-W203. Depending on the
products connected, the functions and displays will vary. For
details, consult your Alpine dealer.
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-W203.
This has been done for the safety of the driver and passengers.
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.

• The IVA-W203 draws minimal current even when its power switch is
turned off. If the switched power (ignition) lead of the IVA-W203 is
connected directly to the positive (+) post of the vehicle’s battery, the
battery may be discharged.
An SPST (Single-Pole, Single-Throw) switch (sold separately) can be
added to simplify this procedure. Then, you can simply place it in the
OFF position when you leave the vehicle. Turn the SPST switch back
ON before using the IVA-W203. For connecting the SPST switch,
refer to the “Connection Diagram of SPST Switch (Sold Separately)”
(page 73). If the power (ignition) lead is unswitched, it must be
disconnected from the battery post should the vehicle be left unused
for an extended period of time.

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-Recordables)/CD-RWs (CDReWritables) 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 16 and 17.
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.
8-EN
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-W203 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-W203 can only read multisession
DATA Formatted discs (MP3/WMA files - Not Audio CD files).
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)

MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1, 2, 2.5 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?
] during playback.
To cancel M.I.X. play, touch [
What is MP3?
] to select the folder.
WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio”, is compressed audio data.
WMA is similar to MP3 audio data and can achieve CD quality
sound with small file sizes.
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. 9 is supported).
Supported playback sampling rates and bit rates
MP3
Sampling rates: 32 kHz ~ 48 kHz
Bit rates:
32 - 320 kbps
WMA
Sampling rates: 32 kHz ~ 48 kHz
Bit rates:
32 - 320 kbps
This device may not play back correctly depending on sampling
rates or bit rates.
ID3 tags/WMA tags
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
(maximum 128 characters).
This device can only display single-byte alphanumeric
characters and the underscore. For non-supported characters,
“NO SUPPORT” is displayed.
The number of characters may be limited, or not correctly
displayed, depending on the tag information.
Terminology
Producing MP3/WMA discs
MP3/WMA files are prepared, then written to a CD-R or CD-RW
(DVD-R/DVD-RW) using CD-R writing software. A disc can hold
up to 1024 files/256 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, CD-Rs,
CD-RWs, DVD-Rs and DVD-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, 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, 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.
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.
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 (or root directory) is found at the top of the file
system. The root folder contains all folders and files. It is created
automatically for all burned discs.
Order of files
Files are played back in the order that the writing software writes
them to the disc. Therefore, the playback order may not be
what’s expected. Verity the writing order in the software’s
documentation. The playback order of the folders and files is as
follows. (The following numbers may differ from actually

(distance of farthest speaker)
– (distance of other speakers)
Divide the distances calculated for the different
speakers by the speed of sound (343 m/s
temperature 20°C).
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)

Adjusting the acoustic image
(BI-PHANTOM)
In most installations, the center speaker must be placed directly between
the front passenger and driver. Using this function, the center channel
information is distributed to the left and right speakers. This creates an
acoustic image simulating a center speaker directly in front of each
listener. Adjusting the center width in PL II MUSIC (see “Using the Pro
Logic II Mode” on page 48), makes this function ineffective.
• Keep the volume to a level at which sounds outside the vehicle can
still be heard.
Adjusting the speaker levels
(OUTPUT LEVEL)
The test tones help to make the volume adjustments of the different
speakers. When levels are equal, a strong sense of presence can be heard
from the different speakers at the listening position.

or switching the audio channel of this unit while making this
adjustment. The setting is canceled if the decode mode is switched.

Searching for a desired Song
Direct Search Function
An iPod can contain hundreds of songs. By keeping these songs
organized in playlists, the IVA-W203 can use these to ease song
searches.
Using the search mode’s individual hierarchy, you can narrow down
your search as shown in the table below.
The unit’s direct search function can be used to search for an album,
song, etc., more efficiently. In PLAYLIST/ARTIST/ALBUM/SONG/
GENRE/COMPOSER/PODCAST mode, you can quickly target any

Opening the battery case
Slide out the battery cover while firmly pressing in the
direction of the arrow.
About DVDs
Music CDs and DVDs have grooves (tracks) in which the digital data is
recorded. The data is represented as microscopic pits recorded into the
track – these pits are read by a laser beam to play the disc. On DVDs,
the density of the tracks and pits is twice that of CDs, so DVDs can
contain more data in less space.
CDs
Minimum pit
length 0.9 μm

A 12 cm disc can contain one movie or about four hours of music. In
addition, DVDs provide sharp picture quality with vivid colors thanks to
a horizontal resolution of over 500 lines (compared to less than 300 for
VHS tape). With the addition of an optional, digital audio processor
(PXA-H701, etc.), you can recreate the power and presence of a movie
theater with Dolby Digital 5.1-channel Surround.
In addition, DVDs offer a variety of functions.

Warning
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.

With this function, a single movie includes various story lines.
You can select different story lines to view various versions of the
same movie.
Operation differs from disc to disc. Story line selection screens
including instructions appear during the movie. Just follow the
instructions.
* These functions differ from disc to disc. For details, refer to the disc’s
instructions.
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 5.1channel 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-H701, etc.) is
required to enjoy full 5.1-channel surround sound.
The IVA-W203 performs Dolby Digital decoding when it outputs
analog audio signals, it just happens to be 2-channel audio not
5.1-channel.
DTS
This is a home-use digital sound format of the DTS Sound
System. This is a high quality sound system, developed by DTS,
Inc. 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-H701, etc.). The DVD video software
must also have a DTS sound track.
The IVA-W203 has a built-in DTS 2-channel audio decoder.
Analog audio outputs are available.
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-H701, etc.) is
required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound.

Linear PCM audio (LPCM)
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.

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 5 to 7 of this manual thoroughly for
proper use.
Caution
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.
Warning
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.
(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.
70-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 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 IVA-W203. 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-W203 to the fuse box, make sure
the fuse for the intended circuit of the IVA-W203 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-W203 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.

Battery
• If your vehicle has no ACC power supply, add an SPST (Single-Pole, Single-Throw) switch (sold separately) and fuse (sold separately).
• The diagram and the fuse amperage shown above are in the case when IVA-W203 is used individually.
• If the switched power (ignition) lead of the IVA-W203 is connected directly to the positive (+) post of the vehicle’s battery, the IVA-W203 draws
some current (several hundred milliamperes) even when its switch is placed in the OFF position and the battery may be discharged.
To prevent external noise from entering the audio system.
Locate the unit and route the leads at least 10 cm away from the car harness.
Keep the battery power leads as far away from other leads as possible.
Connect the ground lead securely to a bare metal spot (remove any paint, dirt or grease if necessary) of the car chassis.
If you add an optional noise suppressor, connect it as far away from the unit as possible. Your Alpine dealer carries various
noise suppressors, contact them for further information.
• Your Alpine dealer knows best about noise prevention measures so consult your dealer for further information.
