CDA - 9833 AI-Net issue

I was recently installing a XM system on to the CDA-9833, when I stupidly cut off the pig tail that was not being used between the AI port and the XM controller. I did not understand, at the time, that I could daisy chain on other components like a CD changer or what ever to that empty end of the cable. I was able to get the XM preview channel before I made the cut. I bought a new cable and XM receiver and controller and that still did not work. The CDA-9833 still plays CDs, I still get radio but no AI-Net functions. Thanks for the help.

Re: CDA - 9833 AI-Net issue

If the radio was still plugged in when you cut it (such a BAAAADDD idea....) it likely shorted the data pins to the power pins which fried the AI net processor. There is no fix for that. It's toast.

How can I get my ipod to work on the Alpine CDA-7892?

Ai-NET/RCA Interface cable (KCA-121B)
Converts the changer port to RCAs... then an RCA to female 3.5mm female adapter.
Or an FM Modulator.

Haveing trouble hearing sound when I have my IPod connected

You need a AI Net cable or Speed Cable... It plugs into the back of the radio (looks like a circle with holes), and the other end can have a "Y" plug (headphone jack and iPod flat jack). The headphone jack for sound, the flat jack to charge he iPod while listening. I just bought mine on for $29.99. With the discount code: 3A156 you can get standard shipping free. The item # is: 127ICALPA and it's named "PAC iPod Adapter for Alpine".

New car, no manual

There is no straigt forward bass and treble adjustment. You must adjust in either the (x-over) or (users EQ) function. It is a bit tedious but performs the bass and treble adjustments at multiple frequencies.
