Connections Important ! When installing this unit in a vehicle without an ACC (accessory) position on the ignition switch, failure to connect the red cable to the terminal that detects operation of the ignition key may result in battery drain. O N S T A R T O F F ACC position No ACC position ! Use of this unit in conditions other than the following could result in fire or malfunction. — Vehicles with a 12-volt battery and negative grounding. — Speakers with 50 W (output value) and 4 W to 8 W (impedance value). ! To prevent a short-circuit, overheating or mal- function, be sure to follow the directions below. — Disconnect the negative terminal of the bat- tery before installation. — Secure the wiring with cable clamps or adhe- sive tape. Wrap adhesive tape around wiring that comes into contact with metal parts to protect the wiring. — Place all cables away from moving parts, such as the shift lever and seat rails. — Place all cables away from hot places, such as near the heater outlet. — Do not connect the yellow cable to the battery by passing it through the hole to the engine compartment. — Cover any disconnected cable connectors with insulating tape. — Do not shorten any cables. — Never cut the insulation of the power cable of this unit in order to share the power with other devices. The current capacity of the cable is limited. — Use a fuse of the rating prescribed. — Never wire the negative speaker cable directly to ground. — Never band together negative cables of multi- ple speakers. ! When this unit is on, control signals are sent through the blue/white cable. Connect this cable to the system remote control of an ex- ternal power amp or the vehicle’s auto-anten- na relay control terminal (max. 300 mA 12 V DC). If the vehicle is equipped with a glass antenna, connect it to the antenna booster power supply terminal. ! Never connect the blue/white cable to the power terminal of an external power amp. Also, never connect it to the power terminal of the auto antenna. Doing so may result in battery drain or a malfunction. ! The black cable is ground. Ground cables for this unit and other equipment (especially, high-current products such as power amps) must be wired separately. If they are not, an accidental detachment may result in a fire or malfunction.

Use 12-cm discs. Do not use 8-cm discs or an adapter for 8-cm discs. Use only conventional, fully circular discs. Do not use shaped discs. Do not insert anything other than a CD into the CD loading slot. Do not use cracked, chipped, warped, or other- wise damaged discs as they may damage the play- er. Unfinalized CD-R/RW discs cannot be played back. Do not touch the recorded surface of the discs. Store discs in their cases when not in use. Do not attach labels, write on or apply chemicals to the surface of the discs. To clean a CD, wipe the disc with a soft cloth out- ward from the center. Condensation may temporarily impair the player’s performance. Let it rest for about one hour to ad- just to a warmer temperature. Also, wipe any damp discs off with a soft cloth. Playback of discs may not be possible because of disc characteristics, disc format, recorded applica- tion, playback environment, storage conditions, and so on. Road shocks may interrupt disc playback. Read the precautions for discs before using them. When using discs that can be printed on label sur- faces, check the instructions and the warnings of the discs. Depending on the discs, inserting and ejecting may not be possible. Using such discs may result in damage to this equipment. Do not attach commercially available labels or other materials to the discs. ! The discs may warp making the disc unplay- able. ! The labels may come off during playback and prevent ejection of the discs, which may result in damage to the equipment. DualDiscs DualDiscs are two-sided discs that have a record- able CD for audio on one side and a recordable DVD for video on the other. Since the CD side of DualDiscs is not physically compatible with the general CD standard, it may not be possible to play the CD side with this unit. Frequent loading and ejecting of a DualDisc may result in scratches on the disc. Serious scratches can lead to playback problems on this unit. In some cases, a DualDisc may become stuck in the disc loading slot and will not eject. To prevent this, we recommend you refrain from using DualDisc with this unit. Please refer to the information from the disc man- ufacturer for more detailed information about DualDiscs.
