Talk hands-free, plus stream music with Bluetooth®
Other devices may come and go, but one thing's for sure — you never leave home without your phone. The Alpine CDE-133BT CD receiver lets you talk hands-free, plus stream music from a compatible phone, all without messy wires.

Advanced Bluetooth features
Have you ever tried to talk to someone, but been unable to understand them because their in-car Bluetooth just didn't cut it? Your callers will hear you loud and clear with the CDE-133BT fielding your calls. First, you can mount the included microphone somewhere in front of you so it'll have no problem picking up your voice. Next, the receiver lets you adjust the mic's gain to best match your speaking voice. You can also tweak the phone output and ring volume, so you won't go diving for the volume knob every time someone calls.

When a call comes in, you'll see your caller's phone number on the screen. You can answer the call by tapping the CDE-133BT's phone button, or set up the receiver to answer all calls automatically. If someone else calls in, just tap the "2" key to activate call waiting.

Stream your tunes, too
If your phone or another device supports Bluetooth music streaming, you can beam your tunes and control playback with the CDE-133BT. Alpine's Sound Expansion technology helps your streaming tunes sound their best.

Great for your iPod® and iPhone®
You can use the CDE-133BT's controls to navigate your iPod's music library, thanks to a convenient front-panel USB input. The person riding shotgun will love Passenger Control Mode, which lets them play DJ while you focus on driving. And let's not forget about what made Alpine famous in the first place — great sound quality. You can adjust your sound to taste with one of the ten equalizer presets or by using the 3-band parametric EQ.

Want to keep your steering wheel controls?
In most vehicles, you can use an adapter (not included) to connect your vehicle's steering wheel controls to this Alpine stereo. Connect a few wires, then program the adapter for your particular car and the Alpine, and you'll retain the convenience of your steering wheel controls. Check the "Accessories" tab for compatible adapters.

Bluetooth note: Use of this receiver's Bluetooth features will depend upon your phone's Bluetooth capabilities. Learn more in our article explaining Bluetooth profiles.

iPod note: If you're going to use your iPod with this receiver, be sure to check "Details" for specific iPod model compatibility with this receiver or its optional iPod adapter.

    Why replace your factory radio?

    Two good reasons - sound quality and cool features. A new car stereo offers power that's superior to most factory radios, along with more sophisticated tone controls. And most car stereos offer built-in or optional features that add safety and fun to life in your car, including inputs for your iPod or MP3 player, Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free cell phone calls, satellite radio or HD Radio reception, and connections for building an audio system in your car.

    The first week was wonderful. I bought this unit for the bluetooth technology. It worked great for the first week. i struggled for months thinking it was my phone not the unit. It would some times connect it would pause during playback for no reason. then I got an i Phone, It would not connect at all. I contacted Alpine and they told me to install the firmware update. That was a challenge in itself. The unit would not connect with my computer. When I finally got it to connect it took about twenty minutes to finally get the update to push. After the update it stuck in the firmware updated do not touch any button for 30 minutes. When it finally told me to touch any button when I tried to check the update the bluetooth would not work at all. Now I have to buy a new unit, This unit does not work well with the i phone at all.

    Love it

    Bought this unit to replace my factory radio in my 99 Wrangler. I wasn't looking to break the bank with my purchase. Just wanted a unit to integrate with my iPhone. Couldn't be happier with my purchase. This was my first purchase from Crutchfield, but it definitely won't be my last. Installation instructions made this a breeze. Looks good and great sound quality.

    Pros: I like the look and sound of the unit. easy to use. USB, AUX, and bluetooth connectivity gives you every option you need to integrate your smartphone or music player. Overly impressed with Crutchfield instructions. Purchase came with all parts I needed for the install and easy to follow installation guide specifically tailored to my Jeep.

    Cons: None

    Very easy to install but had problems with the plastic harness. Had to buy one from a different retailer.

    Pros: Easy installation, sound quality and blue tooth hands free talk

    Cons: none

    This is a great sounding deck. I replaced the stock deck on an '05 Honda Accord. Even with the stock speakers it sounded great right off the bat and was a huge improvement over the stock deck. I have not used the Blue Tooth features yet because I just don't have a reason. I bought this deck to run an iPod in the car easily. The controls for the iPod are a little complicated and not easy while driving without looking away from the road. I typically have the iPod mounted on the dash and control the selections etc right from the iPod itself.

    Pros: Ease of install and use, great sound, good controls of equalizer etc

    Cons: complicated buttons for iPod control.

    loved it

    I have always wanted to use Cruchfield and have never had the opportunity, as I tend to prefer the "Factory look." I bought a jeep and wanted to upgrade stereos for sound quality and the hands free capibility, and I do not think I could have chosen a better stereo. Thanks!

    Pros: Install was easy. Directions were great. Not too sure how it could have been simpler.

    Cons: I cannot think of any.

    Great unit

    I recently installed this unit in a 2003 honda pilot. The install was easy. The harness adapter from Crutchfield really made things easy. I was able to sort out all the wires and make the connections in the comfort of my kitchen.The install kit fits great and the instructions were superb

    The unit works great - the bluetooth connects with my iphone 3 even if I don't have it unlocked. I like the controls - they are easy to use. I bought a Metra ASWC with the unit so my steering wheel controls work with the new head unit. My only regret is the backlight on the unit is blue. My pilot dash is a green back light. I ams so happy with everything else I let the blue color remind me of the ocean.

    Pros: excellent bluetooth, easy controls, easy install, great value

    Cons: Blue is the only back light color -

    This product works well with iPod and iPhone. Seamless actually. Sounds better than the factory shaker 500 it replaced. There were a couple of installation caveats however. The 12v to 5v voltage changer so you don't get a loud POP when the amps turn on is not fully effective. I tried with and without the additional part. Much better with, but not gone. You still hear it. However, this could be because I only purchased one, and the mustang has two blue/white wires, the wiring harness I bought has one. I connected the two blue/white leads together into the voltage adapter, then the adapter to the one blue/white lead from the radio. Maybe I'm overpowering the adapter, and need to put each blue white lead from mustang through its own voltage adapter then combine the to leads after the adapter in a connection with the one from the radio. The other thing to note is that the the generic single din plus pocket, which fits the mustang perfectly, is not made for this radio. The collar attachment does not fit over the radio, its too small. The other attachments that go longitudinally do not fit with this radio either. So the radio at this point is not attached soundly to the car, but fit snugly enough its not an immediate problem. Probably just add a few shims and get it a bit tighter. All in all, nice radio, hands free operation of iPhone, including voice calling. iPod control from the deck. Easy Bluetooth connections. Does all of it with minimal setup.
