Question about Alpine CDA-9856 CD Player

1 Answer

Bass sounds only

I've had this system for over a year, no problems. Today when I tried playing music (from all sources, radio, ipod, cd), all I hear is bass coming out of the subwoofer (which is hooked up to an amp).

I tried adjusting volume, treble, bass, subwoofer volume, but nothing works!

That is tricky one. Did you try adjusting the EQ on both the stereo and the amp? Is the Mute turned on because it will act like that? Is both rca jacks plugged in on stereo and amp?

What are the best settings for bass , treble and mid in order to get the best sound


There are no hard and fast rules for setting Bass, Midrange and Treble on your radio. Depending on the type of music you are listening to with your radio, it can / will determine your sound settings. To attempt to set the sound settings on your radio, select the sound settings and set all of them to 0. ( Bass,mid,treble ), then start playing your usual music. With the music playing move the treble setting in single incriments 1,2,3,4 and so. A comfortable setting is usually a 5 out of a total number of 6. Then move over to Midrange and repeat process. A 4-5 out of 6 is usually comfortable. Finally comes the Bass. You do not want to overpower your speakers with too much bass as this will damage them over time. Repeat the usual process and listen carfully for any baffling or distortion as you move through the numbers. A comfortable bass setting is usually 2-4 out of 6. Again I must stress that there is no hard and fast rule for settings. It boils down to the type of music, and what your ears tells you sounds good. What sounds good to me might not be enough for you, or vice versa. I hope this helps! Cheers!

Hello, my problem is when I insert a CD(mp3), the Subwoofer gets disabled and only the speakers works. However, when I use only radio, the woofer works fine, it's only when I play CDs. My receiver is new...


it sounds like you are using the blue wire (antenna remote turn on) instead of the blue/white (amplifier remote turn on) wire to turn your amplifier on.

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.

Radio sound but NO cd or ipod sound


Radio is screwed.

But try these these steps:

Clean the eye of the head for reading CD. Must open up the radio.

IPod: check for good connections from Ipod to PCB.

I tryed to use the red and white plug ins in the back to hook my ipod up but when i play my ipod i hear the ipod and either the radio or a cd is it possible for me to b able to hook my ipod up with out...


The RCA red and white plugs are OUTPUTS to connect to an amplifier. You are driving one audio source against another-which isn't good. There is no aux input to connect your iPod to. Copy your Ipod music to a CD-R instead and then play it in the pioneer.

When I plug in my Ipod to the Aux.....


I am having a smilar problem, I think the aux jack itself is messed up. I lose the sound out of the left channel, then I jiggle the connection a bit and get the sound back... Often when you can hear instruments and no voice you are hearing only a left or right track. Are you sure both the left and right is working?
