Push the left toggle in. It will go through different preset modes, then it will let you adjust things manually.

I find it helps to keep the Beep function (in the standby menu) on so that you can keep pressing the toggle and know when you're back on volume. It's easy to press by accident.

Step 1:

Press and HOLD the A.ADJ (Audio Adjust) button for 1 sec. to enter audio control mode.

Step 2:

Press either FM (or AM) button to select the mode you wish to adjust. Keep pressing until you find the mode you require (in this case, it will be BL for Balance).

To change the value, press the Down Search or Up Search button to your desired setting. Centre balance is "0", negative number is Left speaker, Positive number is Right speaker.

Step 3:

Repeat Step 2 to select the TREBLE (TRE) mode, then use Down, or Up keys to change the value.

Hope this helps.

My cda-9887 does not have a bass/treble setting. Only fade/balance

In the initial stage of the set up your 9887 the stereo is set with an Equalizer (parametric or graphic), Until you use the Imprint set up module to Tune your car you wont get bass / treble controls. Also after Tuning with Imprint you will lose the EQ function, and it will only be B/T.

How come when i push the "A-M" button to use my sound controls all i get is the balance and the fader? no bass and no treble

You can only use bass and treble if your Z-Enhancer is OFF. If it is on excite or bass boost you cannot adjust bass or treble

Alpine 9845 cde head unit car stereo i Cannot figure out how to access the Fader not the balance,altho i havent seen that function either. ive been to the alpine site and they dont even mention it. im sure...

Press the Rotary encoder (CDE-9845/CDE-9843
only) or press MODE (CDE-9841 only) repeatedly
to choose the desired mode.
Each press changes the modes as follows:
BASS: -7 ~ +10
TREBLE: -7 ~ +7
Subwoofer : 0 ~ +15
Balance : L15 ~ R15
Fader : R15 ~ F15
Defeat : ON/OFF
Volume : 0 ~ 35

How do i adjust the treb/bass?

my initial reply was...On the function button you may need to depress it for 3 seconds to activate base, treble, balance etc But
then I found this, "Rotary Volume Control: The CD receiver uses a 7-way rotary volume control that increases and decreases the volume of the stereo from 0 to 35. The rotary knob also controls other audio settings such as Balance, Fader, Bass, Mid, Treble and preset EQ settings. In addition, the rotary knob allows you to scroll through and select your music tracks when the Music Search function is activated.
Cheers, this should help ya.

I have an Alpine CDA-9813 and to access bass, treble, fade, and balance, you need to press the volume button. This button is usually rotated to adjust the volume but on mine, if you press it in, first time accesses bass, second press accesses treble, 3rd press accesses balance(left to right), and 4th press accesses fading (forward to rear. Press it a 5th time and it either brings you back to volume or back to the main screen. I think it is volume tho. I would assume that the 9853 would work very similar, if not the same.

Finding how to set the treble and bass

Under the silver volume knob is a thin silver bar. Push it and the menu will pop up on the screen. Continue to push this bar to scroll through the different options. It controls bass, treble, balance, fade, sub volume etc. Good luck, hope this helped.
