Question about Alpine CDA-9884 Car CD/ MP3 Player

1 Answer

Alpine CDA-9884 poor FM recep.

When I installed tis head unit I noticed the antenna plug was a different size, so I went and purchased an adapter so I would plug perfectly but the reception is very very poor. Right off the bat I'm completly confused since its a simple connection with not much room for f-up.


thanks

Check the adapter you hooked up to the stock stereo cable and see if its loose or try a new one to see if the old one does not work. Or it could be that your antenna cable that runs to the outside its all f'ed up.

What speakers should i get for the cda 9886 i have a 2000 pontiac grand prix gtp 2dr coupe


The world is your oyster mate, you can have what ever speakers you want in other words, With the Alpine you probably have preouts as well, preouts being red and white adapters that plug into the back of your unit to enable you to extend your system to an amplifier and subs as well as the four standard speakers

Alpine cda 9884 has no sound in cd or ipod mode


actually, chrysler/dodge has factory Infinity sound systems installed. The nice part about these systems is that you dont have to bypass the amplifiers in order to put a new radio in, but simply power up the amp by hooking up the amp turn on wire at the harness. The alpine should have 2 blue wires coming off of the back, one that is solid, the other with a white stripe. The one that is solid only has 12v when the fm/am radio is on (used for power antenna) but cuts off when other sources are used (cd,aux,ipod). My guesses are, you have the amp wire on the vehicle harness (blue) tied into this wire, instead of the BLUE/WHITE wire on the alpine which has 12v as long as the radio is on. i hope this solves your problem, 9 times out of 10 on a chrysler this is it.

Hooking up alpine hd radio unit, bt-400, which one do i hook ipod to


Niether .... do you know what you have in hand? Both those extras costed someone some cash ... OK here it is: the CDA-9884 has a dedicated input for ipod (a KCE-422i cable is needed and comes with the new CDA-9884 in the box) ... The HD radio unit allows you to recieve new HD radio signals (digital radio, and stations that have it in your area may also have extra music streams like HD TV does). The bt-400 is a bluetooth adapter to use bluetooth enabled devices with such as a cell phone. If your ipod has bluetooth you could used the bt adapter but I suggest the KCE-422i cable instead, and check out the HD radio too, it's pretty cool.

Where do I plug in the ipod adapter to Alpine


The back.

There should either be a proprietary CD changer plug you can plug an ipod adapter into, or you will need to connect an adapter inline with your antenna. Depends on what equipment you have.

Alpine cda 9885 Poor radion reception


Your antenna wire could be loose behind the radio because sometime they will have to use an adapter because of the size another thing could be if you have a sirius/xm radio they will send you an adapter to cut down on the static for free also the adapter on the sirius could be loose or bad good luck

No sound with USB and IPOD Apline IDA-X100


You connected your blue alpine wire (power antenna) to your blue wire (amplifier remote on) on the BMW harness adapter. You need to undo this, amputate your blue alpine wire (because your E36 has no power antenna) and connect the alpine blue wire with white stripe (remote power) to your blue wire on the harness adapter.

When you switch source from the radio, alpine is shutting off your amplifier through the connected power antenna wire. Since you're not listening to the radio anymore, it sees no reason why it should give it power.

Instaling alpine car/cd stereo cda 9807


Its probably your wiring harness that came with the stereo. Which can cause many more problems. alpine changed their wiring harness around that time. But they used the same plug, just wired different. So now there are crossed wires, but the plug fits, causing the amp chip to fry. maybe even further than the amp chip. an amp chip replacement runs about 80$ at a repair shop. if its just that.
