CDA-9856 CD receiver
The system starts up front with with Alpine's CDA-9856 in-dash receiver. It'll play your CDs, including your discs loaded with MP3 and WMA files, and it also gives you access to your iPod library.

Bass Engine sound shaping gives you control over the stereo's audio performance, and even lets you adjust your subwoofer's level. Built-in BBE processing ensures clearer highs and more full-bodied sound from all of your recordings. Expand your listening choices by adding an optional satellite radio or auxiliary input for your other gear.

KCE-422i iPod connecting cable
The KCE-422i iPod cable gives you fast and total control from the Alpine receiver's faceplate over all the playlists and songs stored on your iPod.

Two pairs of SPS-17C2 6-1/2" speakers
You'll want to crank up the volume when you hear how terrific these SPS-17C2 6-1/2" S-Series speakers sound. Their efficient design provides powerful sound even when system power is low — yet beefy internal parts ensure they can handle it when you turn it up. The silk dome tweeters offer clear, smooth performance that's always easy on your ears, while the woofers deliver full, strong, and accurate response.

MRP-M450 220 x 1 amplifier
The MRP-M450 V-Power amplifier drives the subwoofer in this package with 400 watts of power, filling your vehicle with all the bass you need. The variable low-pass filter adjusts the frequency output for a tuned sound, while the Bass EQ lets you dial in some extra boost on the lows. A subsonic filter eliminates inaudible, ultra-low bass notes for cleaner output. The amp's casing dissipates heat that can rob your amp of power.

SWS-1042D 10" subwoofer
Put all that power to work with the perfectly matched SWS-1042D, a 10" dual voice coil subwoofer that delivers powerful low-frequency performance, whether you want subtle bass or a booming thump. You can use the SWS-1042D in a sealed or vented enclosure.

Upgrade your entire system with Alpine components, and you'll hear a whole new dimension to your music.

CEA-2006 Compliant: The specifications given by Alpine for the built-in amplifier comply with the CEA-2006 mobile amplifier power testing and measurement standards from the CEA (Consumer Electronics Association). All manufacturers who comply with the standard can display the CEA-2006 logo on their product.

iPod Full Speed: The CDA-9856 has an iPod Direct Connection mounted on a 6" pigtail on the rear panel. When used with the optional KCE-422i Alpine Full Speed Connection cable (500KCE422i), your receiver can interface with any Apple iPod with a dock connector. You can quickly and easily search through all of the music contained on your iPod through Playlist, Artist, or Album searches. You can view Artist, Album, Song Information and Song Number right on the head unit's display. The unit can be used with the following iPod versions:

  • Third generation iPod: Ver.2.3
  • Fourth generation iPod: Ver.3.0.2
  • iPod photo: Ver.1.0
  • iPod mini: Ver.1.3
  • iPod nano: Ver.1.0
  • iPod video

MP3/WMA Playback: This unit can play CD-ROM, CD-R, and CD-RW discs containing MP3/WMA files recorded using the ISO 9660 Level 1 or Level 2 formats. MP3 files with constant and variable bit rates from 8 kbps to 320 kbps and WMA files with constant and variable bit rates from 48 kbps to 192 kbps are supported. The unit is compatible with discs containing up to 510 files/folders, with a maximum of 255 folders. ID3 tags v1 and v2, and WMA tags are supported; track title, artist name and album name ID3 tag data can be displayed.

Text/File/Folder Quick Search: When you're playing a disc with CD Text, MP3 or WMA tags, you can easily search for a track or file by its title. Once you have activated the search mode, you can use the rotary encoder to quickly scan through the titles to locate the desired track, and select it by pressing the Search button.

HD Radio Ready: The CDA-9856 can receive HD Radio signals when the TUA-T500HD HD Radio Tuner Module (500TUAT500) is connected via the Ai-NET connector. While receiving HD Radio, the unit can automatically switch between the analog and digital signals, or you can manually switch to the analog signals exclusively.

Satellite Radio Ready: There are several options for connecting an optional XM or Sirius Satellite Radio receiver to the CDA-9856. To receive XM Satellite Radio, you can connect the optional Terk XMD1000 Universal tuner and the Terk XM Direct Smart Digital Adapter for Alpine (700XMALPIN). To receive Sirius Satellite Radio, you can connect the optional Sirius tuner for Alpine (item # 607SIRALP1) directly to the head unit. A portable satellite radio receiver, such as the Delphi SkyFi2 or Sirius Sportster, can be connected to the head unit via an auxiliary input adapter. A compatible antenna and a subscription are also required to receive satellite radio programming from Sirius or XM.

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 Control:
    • Bass Center Frequency: Select from 60Hz, 80Hz (default), 100Hz, or 120Hz

    • Treble Center Frequency: Select from 7.5kHz, 10kHz (default), 12.5kHz or 15kHz
    • Treble Level: -7 to +7 (+/-14dB in 2dB steps)
  • Defeat On/Off: You can reset the unit to its factory default bass and treble settings by turning the Defeat function on.

Power IC Off: When an external amplifier is connected and the built-in amplifier is not used, removing power from the built-in amplifier will improve the sound quality.

Dimmer: 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 your vehicle's headlight circuit, the display and button illumination will dim to a fixed, preset level whenever the headlights are turned on. If preferred, you may choose the "Manual" dimmer mode setting, so the display and button illumination is dim at all times.

Interrupt Feature: When a device having the interrupt feature (such as a cellular telephone) is connected to the receiver, the audio signal will be automatically muted whenever the interrupt signal is received from the device. The supplied wiring harness contains a pink/black Interrupt lead that needs to be connected to the device's interrupt signal connection.
