sold separately) Head Unit Power Pack to deliver 45 watts x 4-channel RMS of
power. The KTP-445A is compact enough to install behind the Alpine DVD receiver.
It plugs in-line with the head unit's wiring harness, so you don't even need
6ch/4V Preouts: The IVE-W535HD has three sets of 4-Volt RCA
pre-outs (Front/Rear/Sub) for connection of external amplifiers. The unit's
front and rear preamp output can be faded (front/rear), while the subwoofer
preamp output is non-fading.
Subwoofer Control: The subwoofer output level can be
adjusted differently from the main volume setting (0-15); so even at low volume
settings the subwoofer is still audible. The subwoofer output phase can be set
to Normal (0°) or Reverse (180°).
High-Pass & Low-Pass Crossovers: This unit is equipped with
active high-pass and low-pass crossovers which limit the frequencies delivered
to the speaker and line-level outputs. Each speaker channel is controlled
independently, so each speaker pair can be driven by the frequencies for which
have they been optimally designed. The crossover adjusts the HFP (high pass
filter) or LPF (low pass filter) frequency point of each speaker pair, and also
the slope (how fast the filter rolls off the highs or lows).
- High Pass Filter: The Alpine head unit is equipped with
a high-pass filter for its speaker-level output and front/rear-channel
preamp outputs. You can set the unit's high-pass filter center frequency
point to 20Hz, 25Hz, 31.5Hz, 40Hz, 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz, 125Hz, 160Hz,
200Hz, or Off (through). The slope of the high pass filter can be set to 6,
12, 18, or 24 dB/oct.
- Low Pass Filter: The unit's subwoofer output low-pass
filter can be set to 20Hz, 25Hz, 31.5Hz, 40Hz, 50Hz, 63Hz, 80Hz, 100Hz,
125Hz, 160Hz, 200Hz, or Off (through). The slope of the low pass filter can
be set to 6, 12, 18, or 24 dB/oct.
i-Personalize Setup: Tailor your vehicle's sound setting
parameters through the IVE-W535HD's built-in i-Personalize feature. Choose your
vehicle type, upholstery type, number of speakers, and speaker locations; and
the IVE-W535HD will calculate and apply the optimal sound settings for your
- Vehicle Type: Sedan, Couple, Hatchback, Mini Van, Small
SUV, Large SUV, 2DR Truck, 4DR Truck
- Listening Position: Driver seat or All seats
- Front Speaker Size: Small (3-4"), Medium (5-6.5"),
- Tweeter: Yes or No
- Rear Speaker Position: Rear Deck or Rear Door panel

are both made of leather and fabric)
Note: An online version of
i-Personalize is available for even more detailed time-correction and
sound tuning. Once your adjustments are made online, you can download the
parameters to a USB drive and transfer the settings to the IVE-W535HD.
Built-in Equalizer: The Alpine head unit is equipped with
a Preset EQ and 9-Band Parametric EQ.
- Equalizer Presets (Bass Max EQ): 10 typical equalizer
settings are preset at the factory for a variety of music source material.
Choose from Flat, Pops, Rock, News, Jazz, Electrical Dance, Hip Hop, Easy
Listening, Country, and Classical.
- 9-Band Parametric EQ: You can adjust the head unit's
9-Band Parametric Equalizer to create a response curve more appealing to
your personal taste. Band 1 (20Hz-100Hz), Band 2 (63Hz-325Hz), Band 3
(125Hz-500Hz), Band 4 (250Hz-1kHz), Band 5 (500Hz-2kHz), Band 6 (1kHz-4kHz),
Band 7 (2kHz-7.2kHz), Band 8 (5.8 kHz-12kHz), Band 9 (9kHz-20kHz). Bandwidth
Q (1, 2, or 3). Levels (-7 to + 7).
Time Correction: This unit is able to delay the audio signal
to the speakers closest to the listener with its built-in Time Correction
feature. This effectively creates a perception of increased distance for those
speakers. Time Correction allows the listener to be placed at an equal distance
between the left and right speakers for optimum staging. You can adjust the
distance (0-336.6cm) or time delay (0.0-9.9msec) of each speaker and subwoofer
to the listener.
Media Xpander Pro: Alpine's exclusive Media Xpander Pro is
engineered to bring out the musical details lost in compressed media, and it is
adjustable per source to get the most out of your digital audio media. The Media
Expander Pro makes vocals or instruments sound distinct regardless of the music
source. The FM radio, CD, USB memory, iPhone/iPod, and Bluetooth Audio will be
able to reproduce the music more clearly even in vehicles with a lot of road
Source Volume Level: The output level (+/-14dB) of each
source can be individually adjusted. For example, if the Tuner level sounds
lower than CD, its output can be adjusted without affecting the other sources.
Audio Mute: Activating the Audio Mute function will
instantly lower the volume level by 20dB.
IMPRINT Sound Upgradeable: The IVE-W535HD is IMPRINT ready.
Simply add the Alpine IMPRINT
PXA-H800 audio processor (sold separately) and the Alpine
RUX-C800 controller (sold separately) for automatic sound tuning or powerful
manual tuning options. IMPRINT automatically measures the entire listening area,
capturing time domain and frequency response information from each listening
location to process and improve the sound at every seat in your vehicle. Precise
control and corrections yield enhanced sound so you can enjoy an optimal
listening experience. The IMPRINT audio processor allows you to customize your
crossover adjustments so you can control where you send your high and low
frequencies. It also provide detailed equalizer adjustments. The IVE-W535HD is
not compatible with the IMPRINT PXA-H100 processor.
Beep Guide: This function will give audible feedback with
varying tones depending upon the button pressed. The volume of this feature can
be set from 0-7.
Audio/Video Input: The IVE-W535HD is fitted with one
rear-panel audio/video input which consists of a composite video jack and stereo
RCA jacks to connect an external AV source.
Audio/Video Output: Rear-panel stereo RCA jacks and a
composite video jack are provided for feeding an A/V signal to an optional video
monitor for rear seat entertainment. The rear zone signals are passed by RCA
composite video and stereo RCA preamp audio connections. The same audio/video
signal will be displayed on the unit's integrated monitor and the optional video
monitor. You can select the aspect ratio of any back seat monitor(s); choose
from 4:3 Letter Box, 4:3 Pan and Scan, 16:9 Widescreen.
Rear Camera Input: A proprietary rearview camera input on
the rear panel is designed for use with the Alpine HCE-C117D camera
500HCC117D, sold separately). A composite video input is also available so
the input can be used with almost any rearview camera (such as the
500HCEC115, sold separately). Or, you can use both camera inputs to connect
front- and rear-view cameras (front-view cameras include the 500HCEC212F, sold
separately). The IVE-W535HD is also compatible with Alpine's multi-view cameras
(such as the 500HCEC210, sold separately). With a multi-view camera connected,
you can select between a Rear, Panorama, Corner, or Ground view when backing up.
The rear-view camera function also provides three on-screen guidelines to assist
you when backing up your vehicle. If a rear-view camera is connected, you should
also connect the unit's reverse lead wire (Orange/white) to your vehicle's
back-up lamp circuit. When properly connected, the image from the rear-view
camera automatically appears on the monitor when the vehicle is shifted into
reverse. Automatic video switching takes approximately 0.7 seconds. Audio from
your music source will continue playing, while the back-up camera is displayed.
Optional Wireless Remote: The Alpine IVE-W535HD is
wireless remote control ready. Simply add on the Alpine RUE-4190 IR remote
500RUE4190, sold separately) to make it even easier to control the head
unit's basic tuner & disc functions.
Steering Wheel Remote Compatibility: The head unit features an
OEM steering wheel remote control input on the rear of the unit that lets you keep
your vehicle's factory radio steering wheel remote controls when used with an optional
steering wheel audio control adapter (sold separately). Please consult Crutchfield's
Outfit My Car to see if your vehicle is compatible.
