Features

Mobile Multimedia Station: Alpine's line of Ai-NET Mobile Multimedia Stations allow you to connect and control a wide range of in-car audio and visual systems, such as DVD/CD/MP3 changers, rear seat monitors, and navigation systems, from a single in-dash control center.

Motorized, 6.5" Wide Screen Monitor: The IVA-C801 has a motorized 6.5" wide screen monitor (with 16:9 aspect ratio) that serves as a video monitor and system information display.

Automatic Monitor Opening/Closing: When the Automatic Opening/Closing mode is set to "ON," the monitor automatically opens when the ignition key is turned to the "ACC" or "ON" position. The monitor automatically closes when the ignition key is turned OFF.

Monitor Angle Adjustment: You can adjust the monitor's angle for better visibility. The screen angle can be adjusted between 80 and 104 degrees.

Picture Adjustment: You can adjust the brightness, color, and tint of the picture. Color and tint adjustments can only be made in the navigation, DVD, AUX1 and AUX2 modes. Note: Color and tint adjustments cannot be made if a Navigation system with the RGB feature is connected.

Display Dimming: This unit is equipped with an illumination dimmer lead. When the unit's dimmer mode has been set to "AUTO" and the illumination lead has been connected to the vehicle's headlight circuit, the display's illumination will dim to a fixed, preset level whenever the headlights are turned on. If preferred, the "ON" dimmer mode setting may be selected, so the display is dim at all times. 

Background Screen: You have a choice of 12 different background textures/colors. You can select a background texture of Marble, Sky, Wood, Gradient, Metal, or Abyss. You can select a background color of coral, light blue, aqua, pink, green, or dark blue.

"Digital Art" Spectrum Analyzer: You may select from 3 spectrum analyzer modes, or you may turn the spectrum analyzer off. One mode is suitable for all types of music, one mode is specially suited for music with vocals, and another mode emphasizes bass rhythm by providing images created using the low frequencies in audio signals.

Switching Display Modes: In AUX or NAV mode, you can select one of the following display modes:

  • Mode 1 (Wide): evenly stretches a 4:3 picture horizontally to fit the wide screen monitor
  • Mode 2 (Zoom): unevenly stretches a 4:3 picture to fit the wide screen monitor. The center portion of the picture is stretched out only slightly in order to make the important center portion of the picture look natural.
  • Mode 3 (Cinema): displays a 4:3 picture by stretching out the picture horizontally and vertically. This mode is good for displaying a cinema type picture with the proportion of 16 to 9.
  • Mode 4 (Normal): displays a 4:3 picture at the center of the screen with a vertical black belt at each side

Soft Key Operation: As you navigate the head unit's menu system, the "soft key" functions change as indicated on the display. These multipurpose "soft keys" help to eliminate faceplate clutter.

Bass Engine: Bass Engine functions provide control over your system, so you can tailor the sound to your personal tastes. Bass Engine includes the following functions:

  • Bass Center Frequency Control: To tailor bass response to your preference, you may select the bass control's center frequency. You may select from the following center frequencies: 60Hz, 70Hz, 80Hz, or 100Hz.
  • Subwoofer Level Control: The level of the subwoofer preamp outputs can be adjusted to balance the output of your subwoofer with that of your other speakers. In addition, you can select a subwoofer phase mode of Normal or Reverse.

Controls for Add-on Components: The IVA-C801 can control the following optional add-on components: audio processor, CD player, CD changer, MD player, cassette player, DVD/video CD/CD player, DVD Changer, and Navigation System.

Interrupt Feature (MIX LEVEL) With an Alpine navigation system connected to the IVA-C801, the voice guidance of the navigation system will be mixed with the radio or CD/MD audio. You can also adjust the volume level of the voice guidance. If you use this unit connected to an external audio processor, use the built in amplifier. You cannot use this function with an external amplifier.

Simultaneous Operation: You can watch the video portion of one source while listening to another source.

Changer Controls

Compatibility: This unit is compatible with 6 and 12-disc Alpine Ai-NET CD changers; also, this unit can control Alpine Ai-NET CD/MP3 changers and DVD changers. Alpine M-Bus CD changers cannot be controlled by this unit.

Multiple Changer Control: With the addition of an optional adapter, more than one CD changer can be controlled. One KCA-400C adapter will allow you to connect up to 4 CD changers, and two KCA-400C adapters will allow you to connect up to a total of 6 CD changers.

Text Display: When connected to a text capable changer, this unit can display text data from CD Text encoded CDs and MP3 CDs.

Disc Titling: When connected to a CD changer with disc title memory, CD titles may be entered and displayed for discs played in the changer. The title length and title capacity varies depending on the model of CD changer used; titles cannot be input for MP3 discs
