About MP3/WMA/AAC

CAUTION

Except for private use, duplicating audio data (including MP3/ WMA/AAC data) or distributing, transferring, or copying it, whether for free or for a fee, without permission of the copyright holder is strictly prohibited by the Copyright Act and by international treaty.

What is MP3?

MP3, whose official name is “MPEG-1 Audio Layer 3,” is a compression standard prescribed by the ISO, the International Standardization Organization and MPEG which is a joint activity institution of the IEC.

MP3 files contain compressed audio data. MP3 encoding is capable of compressing audio data at extremely high ratios, reducing the size of music files to as much as one-tenth their original size. This is achieved while still maintaining near CD quality. The MP3 format realizes such high compression ratios by eliminating the sounds that are either inaudible to the human ear or masked by other sounds.

What is AAC?

AAC is the abbreviation for “Advanced Audio Coding,” and is a basic format of audio compression used by MPEG2 or MPEG4.

What is WMA?

WMA, or “Windows Media™ Audio,” is compressed audio data. WMA is similar to MP3 audio data and can achieve CD quality sound with small file sizes.

Method for creating MP3/WMA/AAC files

Audio data is compressed by using MP3/WMA/AAC specified software. For details on creating MP3/WMA/AAC files, refer to the user’s manual for that software.

MP3/WMA/AAC file extensions that can be played back on the unit are as follows:

MP3: “mp3”

WMA: “wma” (ver. 7.1, 8, 9, 9.1, 9.2 supported) AAC: “m4a”

WMA is not supported for the following files, Windows Media Audio Professional, Windows Media Audio 9 Voice or Windows Media Audio 9 Pro Lossless.

Depending on the software that is used to create AAC, the file format may differ from the extension.

Unit playback of AAC files encoded by version 7.7 iTunes is supported.

Terminology

Bit rate

This is the “sound” compression rate specified for encoding. The higher the bit rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger the files.

Sampling rate

This value shows how many times per second the data is sampled (recorded). For example, music CDs use a sampling rate of 44.1 kHz, so the sound is sampled (recorded) 44,100 times per second. The higher the sampling rate, the higher the sound quality, but also the larger the volume of data.

Encoding

Converting music CDs, WAVE (AIFF) files, and other sound files into the specified audio compression format.

Tag

Song information such as track titles, artist names, album names, etc., written into MP3/WMA/AAC files.

Root folder

The root folder is found at the top of the file system. The root folder contains all folders and files.

On / Off (Initial setting)

When the Media Xpander is on, you can adjust the Media Xpander level (refer to page 33).

The function is inoperable when Defeat is set to ON.

Setting the MX Level

MX (Media Xpander) makes vocals or instruments sound distinct regardless of the music source. The FM radio, CD, USB memory and iPod/iPhone, will be able to reproduce the music clearly even in cars with a lot of road noise.

Changing the source to which you want to apply Media Xpander.

FM (Level 1 to 3, Non Effect):

The medium to high frequencies become clearer, and produces well balanced sound at all frequencies.

CD (Level 1 to 3, Non Effect):

CD mode processes a large amount of data during playback. MX takes advantage of this large data quantity to reproduce a more clear, clean output.

MP3/WMA/AAC/iPod/BLUETOOTH Audio (Level 1 to 3, Non Effect):

This corrects information that was lost at the time of compression. This reproduces a well-balanced sound close to the original.

DVD (Video CD)

(Level 1 to 2 (MOVIE), Non Effect):

The dialogue portion of a video is reproduced more clearly.

(Level 3 (MUSIC), Non Effect):

A DVD or Video CD contains a large quantity of data such as music clip. MX uses this data to reproduce the sound accurately.

AUX (Level 1 (MP3/WMA/AAC/iPod/BLUETOOTH Audio), Level 2 (MOVIE), Level 3 (MUSIC), Non Effect):

Choose the MX mode that corresponds to the media connected. If two external devices are connected, a different MX mode for each media can be selected.

To cancel MX mode for all music sources, set MX to Off in step 4.

Each music source, such as FM radio, CD, and MP3/WMA/AAC can have its own MX setting.

When the source changes from “MP3/WMA/AAC to CD-DA” or “CD-DA to MP3/WMA/AAC”, MX-mode switching may delay playback slightly.

Setting to MX Off sets MX mode of each music source to Off.

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, this unit is 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 3.4cm 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.

5.1ms

0.5m

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 correction value to the farthest speaker and the other speakers.

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

These values are the time correction values for the different speakers. Setting these values to make each sound reach the listening position at the same time as the sound of other speakers.

About the Crossover

Crossover (X-OVER):

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 (0 dB/oct) 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.

Adjustment should be made according to the recommended crossover frequency of the connected speakers. Determine the recommended crossover frequency of the speakers. Adjusting to a frequency range outside that recommended may cause damage to the speakers.

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

We are not responsible for damage or malfunction of speakers caused by using the crossover outside the recommended value.

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.

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.

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.

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-related system), 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 BOLTS OR SCREWS 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 GEARSHIFT.

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

DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN SURROUNDING OBJECTS.

Arrange wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct or hang up on places such as the steering wheel, gear lever, brake pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous.

Precautions

Be sure to disconnect the cable from the (–) battery post before installing your iDA-X305S. This will reduce any chance of damage to the unit in case of a short-circuit.

Be sure to connect the color 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-board computer). Do not tap into these leads to provide power for this unit. When connecting the iDA-X305S to the fuse box, make sure the fuse for the intended circuit of the iDA-X305S has 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 iDA-X305S uses female RCA-type jacks 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.

Be sure to connect the speaker (–) leads to the speaker (–) terminal. Never connect left and right channel speaker cables to each other or to the vehicle body.
