! 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.

Handling guidelines
Discs and player
Use only discs that feature either of the following
two logos.
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.
USB storage device
Address any questions you have about your USB
storage device to the manufacturer of the device.
Connections via USB hub are not supported.
Do not connect anything other than a USB stor-
age device.

About iPod settings
! When an iPod is connected, this unit changes
the EQ (equalizer) setting of the iPod to off in
order to optimize the acoustics. When you dis-
connect the iPod, the EQ returns to the original
setting.
! You cannot set Repeat to off on the iPod when
using this unit. Repeat is automatically
changed to All when the iPod is connected to
this unit.
Incompatible text saved on the iPod will not be dis-
played by the unit.
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.
