Searching Directly by Chapter or Track Number

Use this function to easily move to the beginning of the chapters or tracks on the disc.

This operation is performed by the remote control unit.

1 During playback orpre-stop,input the chapter or track number you desire using the number keys (“0” to “9”).

2 Press ENT.

Playback starts from the selected chapter or track.

This function cannot be used on discs on which no chapter numbers are recorded.

The beginning of a track number cannot be directly found on the Video CD equipped with PBC (playback control). Set VCD PLAY MODE to turn the PBC function off. Refer to “Setting the Video CD Play Mode” (page 37).

Depending on the number of digits input, playback may start automatically even if ENT. is not pressed in step 2.

Press CLR to delete the last digit in the chapter/track number. Press and holdCLR for at least 2 seconds to clear “Chapter” and “Track” numbers.

Press RETURN to cancel the chapter/track search mode and resume normal playback.

Chapter/Track/Title Repeat Playback

Use this function to play the disc’s titles, chapters or tracks repeatedly.

1 Press FUNC. to activate the audio function mode.

The track/disc repeat modes cannot be used on video CDs with playback control (PBC). Set VCD PLAY MODE to turn the PBC function off. Refer to “Setting the Video CD Play Mode” (page 37).

For some discs it is not possible to switch the repeat mode.

Switching the Audio Tracks

DVDs can have up to 8 different audio tracks. These alternate tracks can be switched during playback.

This operation is performed by the remote control unit.

During playback, press AUDIO.

The sound switches between the alternate audio tracks recorded on the disc each time the button is pressed.

The selected audio track becomes the default setting every time the power is turned on or the disc is replaced. If a disc does not include the language you selected for the default audio track, the disc’s default language is selected instead. Refer to “Setting the language” (page 34).

Not all discs will allow changing the alternate audio tracks during playback. In these cases, select audio tracks from the DVDs menu.

There may be a delay before the selected alternate track begins to play.

Video CDs with multiplex audio

During playback, press AUDIO.

The left and right channels will be output as shown below, each time the button is pressed.

Switching the Angle (DVD only)

On DVDs in which scenes have been filmed from multiple angles, the angle can be switched during playback.

This operation is performed by the remote control unit.

During playback, press ANGLE.

The angle switches between the angles recorded on the disc each time the button is pressed.

Some time may be required for the angle to change.

Depending on the disc, the angle may switch in one of two ways.

-Seamless: The angle switches smoothly.

-Non-seamless:When the angle is switched, a still picture is displayed first, after which the angle switches.

Switching the Subtitles (subtitle language) (DVD only)

With multiple subtitle language DVDs, the subtitle language can be switched during playback, or subtitles can be hidden.

This operation is performed by the remote control unit.

During playback, press SUBTITLE.

The subtitle switches between the languages recorded on the disc and OFF each time the button is pressed.

There may be a delay before the selected subtitle appears.

Not all discs will allow changing the subtitles during playback. In these cases, select subtitles from the DVD’s menu.

The selected subtitle language becomes the default setting every time the power is turned on or the disc is replaced. If a disc does not include that language, the disc’s default language is selected instead. Refer to “Setting the language” (page 34).

For some discs, the subtitles will be displayed even when this is set to off.

Tips

Switching from the disc menu.

For some discs, the audio language, angle and subtitles can be switched from the disc menu.

• This operation is performed by the remote control unit.

1Press MENU, select the item, then press ENT.

2Press 8,9,; or: to select the language or angle, then press ENT.

Adjusting Balance (Between Left and Right)/ Fader (Between Front and Rear)/Defeat

1 Press the Rotary encoder (MODE) repeatedly to choose the desired mode.

Each press changes the mode as follows:

SUBWOOFER*1 → BALANCE → FADER → DEFEAT → VOLUME → SUBWOOFER*1

Subwoofer : 0 ~ +15

Balance : L15 ~ R15

Fader : R15 ~ F15

Defeat : ON/OFF

About the Crossover

Crossover:

This unit is equipped with an active crossover. The crossover limits the frequencies delivered to the outputs. Each channel is controlled independently. Thus, each speaker pair can be driven by the frequencies for which they have been optimally designed.

The crossover adjusts the HPF (high pass filter) or LPF (low pass filter) of each band, and also the slope (how fast the filter rolls off the highs or lows).

Adjustments should be made according to the reproduction characteristics of the speakers. Depending on the speakers, a passive network may not be necessary. If you are unsure about this point, please consult your authorized Alpine dealer.

HPF (high pass filter): Cuts the lower frequencies and allows the higher frequencies to pass.

LPF (low pass filter): Cuts the higher frequencies and allows the lower frequencies to pass.

Slope: The level change (in dB) for a frequency change of one octave.

The higher the slope value, the steeper the slope becomes.

Adjust the slope to FLAT to bypass the HP or LP filters.

Do not use a tweeter without the HPF on or set to a low frequency, as it may cause damage to the speaker due to the low frequency content.

You cannot adjust the crossover frequency higher than the HPF or lower than the LPF.

Use the recommended crossover frequencies of the speakers being used for setting the crossover. Adjusting to a frequency outside that recommended range might cause damage to the speakers.

For the recommended crossover frequencies of Alpine speakers, refer to the respective Owner's Manual.

Alpine is not responsible for damage or malfunction of speakers caused by improper crossover settings.

About Time Correction

The distance between the listener and the speakers in a car vary widely due to the complex speaker placement. This difference in the distances from the speakers to the listener creates a shift in the sounds image and frequency characteristics. This is caused by the time delay between the sound reaching the listener’s right versus the left ear.

To correct this, the DVA-9965Ris able to delay the audio signal to the speakers closest to the listener. This effectively creates a perception of increased distance for those speakers. The listener can be placed at an equal distance between the left and right speakers for optimum staging.

The adjustment will be made for each speaker in 0.1 ms steps.

Example 1. Listening Position: Front Left Seat

Adjust the time correction level of the front left speaker to a high value and the rear right to zero or a low value.

5.1ms0.5m

2.25m

The sound is not balanced because the distance between the listening position and the various speakers is different.

The difference in distance between the front left speaker and the rear right speaker is 1.75 m (68-7/8").

Here we calculate the time correction value for the front left speaker in the diagram on the above.

Conditions:

Farthest Speaker – listening position : 2.25 m (88-9/16")Front left speaker – listening position : 0.5 m(19-11/16")Calculation: L = 2.25 m – 0.5 m = 1.75 m(68-7/8")

Time correction = 1.75 ÷ 343*1 × 1000 = 5.1 (ms)

*1 Speed of sound: 343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C

In other words, giving the front left speaker a time correction value of 5.1 ms makes it seem as if its distance from the listener is the same as the distance to the farthest speaker.

Time correction eliminates the differences in the time required for the sound to reach the listening position.

The time of the front left speaker is corrected by 5.1 ms so that its sound reaches the listening position at the same time as the sound of other speakers.

Example 2. Listening Position: All Seats

Adjust the time correction level of each speaker to almost the same level.

1 Sit in the listening position (driver’s seat, etc.) and measure the distance (in meters) between your head and the various speakers.

2 Calculate the difference between the distance to the farthest speaker and the other speakers.

L = (distance to farthest speaker) – (distance to other speakers)

3 Divide the distances calculated for the speakers by the speed of sound (343 m/s (765 mph) at 20˚C).

These values are the time correction values for the different speakers.
