Multicasting 
When you use the tuner with a 2007 Alpine CD receiver, you can tune in alternate channels being broadcast by many of the upgraded radio stations. Radio stations use these extra channels to provide you with different musical or informational content.

Your car's antenna plugs directly into this tuner box, which then connects to the Ai-NET changer port on your 2006-up Alpine stereo. Participating HD Radio stations can also broadcast artist info, song titles, and other text information, and this text will appear on the stereo's display. Dimensions: 7-13/16"W x 1-3/8"H x 7-7/8"D. Warranty: 1 year.

Note: Sorry, Crutchfield cannot ship Alpine products to Guam or Puerto Rico.

Features

HD Radio: HD Radio is digital FM and AM broadcasting, allowing you to enjoy your same favorite FM and AM stations with digital sound quality. The FM stations have CD-quality sound and AM stations sound as good as today's analog FM stations. In some cases, when reception is good, you can listen to programs in stereo with the digital AM broadcast.

Compatibility: This tuner is compatible with 2006-up Alpine head units that use the Ai-NET bus system.

CD Changer Pass-Thru: The HD Radio tuner uses the CD changer input on the Alpine head unit. If you also want to use a CD changer, there is a CD changer pass-through connection on the tuner, so they can be daisy chained together.

Inputs and Outputs

Left Side of Tuner:

  • Antenna: Motorola jack that connects to the head unit using the supplied antenna extension cable
  • Power: 4-pin jack for use with supplied power harness
  • Ai-NET Output: Ai-NET jack that connects to the head unit using the supplied Ai-NET cable
  • Ai-NET Input: Ai-NET jack that connects to an optional CD changer
