CAUTION
This symbol means important instructions.
Failure to heed them can result in injury or property damages.
&
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.
• 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.
• DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER. Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock.
• USE THIS PRODUCT FOR MOBILE 12V APPLICATIONS. Use for other than its designed application may result in
fire, electric shock or other injury.
• 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.
• MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS. Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product damage.
• 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.
• 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 DR 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 OFTHE REACH OF CHILDREN. Swallowing them may result
in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.
&
CAUTION
• 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.
• 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 ihe work done.
• USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY. 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.
• 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.
