Question about Alpine CDM-7857 CD Player

1 Answer

Want to know if I can use the line-level inputs from the CD Chgr

So I've got this great Alpine CDM-7857 head unit. I've seen adapters that adapt AI-NET CD changer ports to RCA inputs (for use with MP3 players and such), but I'm not sure if they're what I need. They show a DIN-sized jack but with two large prongs on the inside. Mine looks more like a DIN jack - it has several pins on the inside. However, the manual for the head unit promotes some AI-NET CD changers, so... now I'm just confused. Thanks!

Your alpine unit is the old "M-BUS" the other adapter you are talking about is an "AI-BUS" adapter. (Hence the model numbers beginning with CD"M" or CD"A" ...)

Look for an Alpine M-Bus to RCA Input adapter.

heres one on eay for less than 10.00 including shipping.

I purchased a used Suburban in which the previous owner installed an Alpine CDM-7857 receiver. Although I do not have the Alpine owner's manual I figured out most the receiver's operations except how to...


According to the manual follow these steps

While the clock is displayed, hold down the clock button for 3 seconds.
Time indicator will blink.
Press the ct button to set the seconds.
Press the H button for the hour.
and M for minutes.

Time indication will stop blinking 5 seconds after the ajustment.
Then the time will automatically be set.

Just in case I will include the link to the manual for other operations.....

Ipod to alpine CDM-9821


Hello andrewbheber,

Your head unit is an Alpine "M-Bus" unit and has a proprietary connector for the AUX input. It requires a special cable from Alpine, the model KCM-123B..

Here's a link to the product. Click on the cable itself to see an image of what the connector on the back of your receiver looks like.

Hope this helps.

How can i plug my mp3 player into my alpine cde-7853?


Get a cd/aux adapter from an alpine dealer, this will change your cd changer input on the back of the radio to a RCA input, then get yourself a Y adapter, and head phone adapter, and you are set..

Connect alpine 7874 to alpine powered sub


You need to run the RCA cables from the head unit to the sub for the audio signal, and possibly a turn on wire (the blue one on the back of the head unit), unless the sub has an automatic power feature.

The sub also needs power and ground wires attached, but those do not connect to the head unit. Power should be run directly from the battery with an inline fuse, and ground should go to the nearest good ground point (Trunk latch, seat bolt, etc).

Alpine CDM-7857 Distant-local switching


Yep, you'll see a Play/Pause button. Just press that until it says DX Seek (or Seek if you want to skip over stations that are slightly farther away). Then press your tune buttons! If it still doesn't work while in DX or DX Seek mode, then hold the tune button for a second. It'll beep and start scanning to the next one!
