About the Eclipse CD3100

Eclipse's CD3100 CD receiver will get you grooving to great sound on the highway, and its Area Shot feature guides you to your destination by text information and direction arrows. Just download point-to-point navigation instructions from the Eclipse web site, and then load the data into the receiver via a recordable CD disc.

Eclipse's CD3100 CD receiver will get you grooving to great sound on the highway, and its Area Shot feature guides you to your destination by text information and direction arrows. Just download point-to-point navigation instructions from the Eclipse web site, and then load the data into the receiver via a recordable CD disc.

The great sound comes courtesy of a solid internal amplifier that puts punch and clarity into your tunes. The 3-band equalizer and built-in frequency filters adjust the receiver's output to fit your vehicle's acoustics and your listening tastes. Three sets of preamp outputs send a high-voltage signal to external amplifiers — just the ticket if you're expanding your system.

The versatile CD3100 covers all the bases — it plays CDs loaded with MP3 and WMA files, and includes the option to add an auxiliary input so you'll have room to connect an outboard audio source to your system. You'll also find a connection for adding an Eclipse SIRIUS satellite radio, HD Radio™ tuner, or iPod® control adapter.

    MP3/WMA Playback: The CD3100 can play MP3 and WMA files recorded onto CD-R and CD-RW discs in ISO 9660 Level 1 and 2. Recommended bit rates are 64-320 kbps for MP3 and 48-320 kbps for WMA. Variable bit rates from 64 to 320 kbps for MP3 and 48 to 192 kbps for WMA can be used, however there may be a discrepancy in the time display. The receiver can recognize a total of 256 files, 191 folders, and 8 directory layers on a single disc. The receiver can show the names of albums and artists from and ID3 and WMA tags.

    CD Text: If a CD Text disc is inserted, the receiver will display the artist name, disc title, and track title information.

    Area Shot: Using the special Eclipse E-iSERV website, you can download turn-by-turn text directions to a destination using NAVTEQ map data for the U.S. and Canada. The directions are burned to a CD-R and imported into the CD3100. The Area Shot feature allows you to display the driving instructions to your destination on the receiver, you manually flip through the pages as you follow the route. Text information includes intersection street names and turn directions.

    Radio Band Switching: If you wish to take the receiver out of the country, the tuner frequencies and interval can be switched on any of four possible regions:

    • USA:
      • FM: 87.75-107.9 MHz (0.2 MHz step)
      • AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz step)
    • Asia (includes Europe):
      • FM: 87.5-108.0 MHz (0.05 MHz step)
      • AM: 522-1629 kHz (9 kHz step)
    • Australia:
      • FM: 87.5-108.0 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
      • AM: 522-1710 kHz (9 kHz step)
    • Latin America:
      • FM: 87.75-107.9 MHz (0.1 MHz step)
      • AM: 530-1710 kHz (10 kHz step)

    High-volt Preamp Outputs: The CD3100 features three sets of 5-volt, low-impedance (55Ω) preamp outputs, including a non-fading output for a subwoofer. The outputs are affected by the crossover settings (see below).

    Sound Adjustment Modes: The CD3100 is equipped with several sound adjustment features:

    • Parametric EQ: The 3 band parametric EQ allows more accurate tonal adjustment than typical bass and treble controls or a graphic equalizer:
      • Bass:
        • Q (Width of adjusted band): Wide, Midwide, Normal, or Narrow
        • Center frequency: 60Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, or 120Hz
      • Middle:
        • Q: Normal or Wide
        • Center frequency: 700Hz (fixed)
      • Treble:
        • Q: Normal (fixed)
        • Center frequency: 7.5kHz, 10kHz, 12.5kHz, or 15kHz
    • Crossover: The crossover allows you to independently apply a low pass filter to the non-fading (subwoofer) outputs and a high pass filter to the front and rear outputs. The slope of both is 12 dB/octave.
    • Non-fader: The phase and output level of the non-fading (subwoofer) output can be adjusted.
    • Loudness: The loudness control may be turned on to emphasize low and high frequencies at low volume levels. When selected, the loudness contour provides a +10dB boost at 100Hz and a +6dB boost at 10kHz.

    Source Volume Controls (SVC): Because the level of each source can vary greatly, the Source Volume Controls allow you to raise or lower the volume of AM radio and CD audio compared to the FM radio signal. The volume differences can be set within a range of -10 to +20.

    Illumination: The front panel buttons are backlit in green and red; the large buttons and rotary knob are green and the presets, EQ, mode, and mute buttons are red. If the accessory power is on and the unit is turned off, most of the LED display turns off (the clock stays on) but the buttons and rotary knob stay backlit. When the unit is on and 12 volts is applied to the illumination wire the LED dims, but the button backlighting remains unchanged.

    Remote Control: The CD3100 is controlled by the supplied RMC105 remote control. With the remote you can access the following functions: Power, Mode, Volume Up/Dn, Source select (Disc/Tuner/Aux), Band select, Mute, Preset Channel Up/Dn, Disc Up/Dn, Track Up/Dn, and Tune/Seek Up/Dn.

    Steering Wheel Remote: Through the special E-iSERV website from Eclipse, you can download software that enables factory steering wheel remote operation of the CD3100. This software is burned to a CD-R and imported into the receiver. Two wires (brown/black and brown) in the supplied wiring harness need to be connected to factory wiring in order for steering wheel remote commands can operate. Note: Depending upon the vehicle's make and model, not all downloaded material may be compatible with steering wheel remote functions.

    Angle Mounting: Eclipse recommends mounting the CD3100 no more that 30° above horizontal.

    Auxiliary Input: The CD3100 is compatible with the optional AUX105 Aux cord (item #099AUX105), it's plugged into the E-LAN connector on the rear panel. If the AUX105 is used, you cannot add a CD changer. You can set the input sensitivity of the Aux input to Low, Mid, or High.

    External Device Controls

    iPod Ready: You can enjoy music from your Apple iPod when it's connected to the head unit via the optional Eclipse iPC-106 Interface Adapter for iPod (item # 099IPC106). The adapter is compatible only with iPods with a dock connector including the iPod video (5th generation), iPod touch (1st/2nd generation), classic (80/120/160GB) and iPod nano (3rd/4th generation) or iPhone/iPhon3G. While connected, the head unit will power the iPod, and charge the iPod's battery. You can perform playlist, album, artist, genre, or song searches. Playback functions include track up/down, fast forward/rewind, track repeat, track random play, and album random play. Display selections include song, album, or artist. The iPC-106's E-LAN pass-through allows you to add a CD changer to your system.

    Note: This adapter will not charge the iPhone3G, iPod touch 2nd generation, or iPod nano 4th generation. The iPod classic and nano 3rd generation should have the latest version 1.1 or higher installed for compatibility. This version can be downloaded from Apple's website. 

    HD Radio Ready: The CD3100 is compatible with the optional HDR105 HD Radio Tuner (item #099HDR105). When the HDR105 is connected, you can enjoy your same FM and AM stations with digital sound quality. FM stations sound as good as CDs, and AM stations sound as good as today's analog FM stations. The tuner has an E-LAN pass-through connection, allowing you to daisy chain an Eclipse CD changer.

    Satellite Radio Ready: There are two options for connecting an optional satellite radio tuner to this receiver, and a direct XM option will be available soon:

    • SIRIUS Satellite Radio: To receive SIRIUS Satellite Radio, you can connect the optional Eclipse SIR-ECL1 tuner (item # 099SIRECL1).
    • Auxiliary Input: A portable satellite radio receiver, such as the Delphi SkyFi3 or SIRIUS Sportster, can be connected to the head unit via an auxiliary input.

      Note: A subscription is also required to receive satellite radio programming from SIRIUS or XM.

    Bluetooth Ready: With the optional BT-E500 Bluetooth adapter (item number 099BTE500), you can make and receive calls hands-free on your Bluetooth-capable cellular phone; communicate using an included microphone and your vehicle's speakers.

    Changer Controls: The CD3100 can control up to two Eclipse CH3083 8-disc CD changers (item # 099CH3083) through its E-LAN Bus connector. The CH3083 CD changer has a E-LAN pass-through input for the second changer, so no special adapter is needed. When an optional CD changer is connected, the CD3100 has the following controls: Track Skip, Disc Skip, Fast Forward/Fast Reverse, Track Intro Scan, Disc Intro Scan, Track Repeat, Disc Repeat, Disc Random, All Disc Random, and Direct Disc Select (Discs 1-12).
