Installation and Connections
Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the
following and pages 3 to 5 of this manual thoroughly
for proper use.
MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.
Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or
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
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
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
Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc.
and results in serious accident.
HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY
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.
USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM
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
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.
• Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before
installing your CDA-9815RB/CDA-9813R/CDA-9812RX/
CDA-9811R. This will reduce any chance of damage to the
unit in case of a short-circuit.
• Be sure to connect the colour 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 CDA-9815RB/CDA-9813R/
CDA-9812RX/CDA-9811R to the fuse box, make sure the fuse
for the intended circuit of the CDA-9815RB/CDA-9813R/
CDA-9812RX/CDA-9811R 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 CDA-9815RB/CDA-9813R/CDA-9812RX/CDA-9811R
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.
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.
