Terminology

Dolby Digital

Dolby Digital is a digital audio compression technology developed by Dolby Laboratories that allows large quantities of audio data to be efficiently recorded on discs. It is compatible with audio signals from mono (1 channel) all the way up to 5.1-channelsurround sound. The signals for the different channels are completely independent, and since the sound is high quality digital there is no loss of sound quality.

*The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H701,etc.) is required to enjoy full5.1-channelsurround sound.

The DHA-S690performs Dolby Digital decoding when it outputs analog audio signals;2-channelaudio, not 5.1- channel.

Dolby Pro Logic

Dolby Pro Logic is the technology used to decode programmes encoded in Dolby Surround. Pro Logic decoding will provide you with four channels of sound (front left/right, centre and monaural rear surround) from a 2-channel(stereo) source.

*The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H701,etc.) is required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic surround sound.

Dolby Pro Logic II

Dolby Pro Logic II plays 2-channelsources in 5 channels over the entire frequency range.

This is done with an advanced, high sound quality matrix surround decoder which draws out the spatial properties of the original recording without adding any sounds to or changing the sound of the source.

*The separately sold digital audio processor (PXA-H701,etc.) is required to enjoy Dolby Pro Logic II surround sound.

Linear PCM audio (LPCM)

LPCM is a signal recording format used for music CDs. Whereas music CDs are recorded at 44.1 kHz/16 bits, DVDs are recorded at 48 kHz/16 bits to 96 kHz/24 bits, thereby achieving higher sound quality than music CDs.

Rating levels (parental lock)

This is a DVD function for restricting the viewing age as stipulated by censorship laws in different countries. The way in which viewing is restricted differs from DVD to DVD. Sometimes the DVD cannot be played at all, other times certain scenes are skipped, and other times certain scenes are replaced with other scenes.

Speaker layout for enjoying Dolby Digital sound/DTS sound

DTS

This is a home-usedigital sound format of the DTS Sound System. This is a high quality sound system, developed by DTS, Inc. for use in movie theatres.

DTS has six independent sound tracks. The theatre presentation is fully realized in the home, etc. DTS is the abbreviation for Digital Theatre System.

*To enjoy DTS surround sound you need the separately sold DTS digital audio processor (PXA-H701,etc.).The DVD video software must also have a DTS sound track.

The DHA-S690has abuilt-inDTS2-channelaudio decoder. Analog audio outputs are available.

Installation and Connections

Before installing or connecting the unit, please read the following and pages 3 to 4 of this manual thoroughly for proper use.

Warning

MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS.

Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product damage.

USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND.

(Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire, etc.

BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL.

Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to electrical shorts.

DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES.

Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of the wire and result in fire or electric shock.

DO NOT DAMAGE PIPE OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES.

When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire.

DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS.

Bolts or nuts used for the brake or steering systems (or any other safety-relatedsystem), or tanks should NEVER be used for installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable control of the vehicle and cause fire etc.

KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BATTERIES OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN.

Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a physician immediately.

DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WHICH MIGHT HINDER VEHICLE OPERATION, SUCH AS THE STEERING WHEEL OR SHIFT LEVER.

Doing so may obstruct forward vision or hamper movement etc. and results in serious accident.

Caution

HAVE THE WIRING AND INSTALLATION DONE BY EXPERTS.

The wiring and installation of this unit requires special technical skill and experience. To ensure safety, always contact the dealer where you purchased this product to have the work done.

USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURELY.

Be sure to use only the specified accessory parts. Use of other than designated parts may damage this unit internally or may not securely install the unit in place. This may cause parts to become loose resulting in hazards or product failure.

ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE.

Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wire’s insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole.

DO NOT INSTALL IN LOCATIONS WITH HIGH MOISTURE OR DUST.

Avoid installing the unit in locations with high incidence of moisture or dust. Moisture or dust that penetrates into this unit may result in product failure.

Precautions

Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–)battery post before installing yourDHA-S690.This will reduce any chance of damage to the unit in case of ashort-circuit.

Be sure to connect the colour coded leads according to the diagram. Incorrect connections may cause the unit to malfunction or damage to the vehicle’s electrical system.

When making connections to the vehicle’s electrical system, be aware of the factory installed components (e.g. on-boardcomputer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for this unit. When connecting theDHA-S690to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of theDHA-S690has the appropriate amperage. Failure to do so may result in damage to the unit and/or the vehicle. When in doubt, consult your ALPINE dealer.

The DHA-S690uses femaleRCA-typejacks for connection to other units (e.g. amplifier) having RCA connectors. You may need an adaptor to connect other units. If so, please contact your authorized ALPINE dealer for assistance.
