When naming an MP3 file, be sure to add the file extension.mp3 to the file name. During playback or fast-forward/reverse of a VBR (Variable Bit Rate) MP3 file, elapsed playing time may not display accurately.


Battery may explode if mistreated. Do not recharge, disassemble, or dispose of in fire.

Yellow Jaune Amarillo

This unit is designed for negative ground (earth) 12 V DC operation only. Do not get the leads under a screw, or caught in moving parts (e.g. seat railing). Before making connections, turn the car ignition off to avoid short circuits. Connect the yellow and red power supply leads only after all other leads have been connected. Run all ground (earth) leads to a common ground (earth) point. Be sure to insulate any loose unconnected leads with electrical tape for safety. The use of optical instruments with this product will increase eye hazard. Notes on the power supply lead (yellow) When connecting this unit in combination with other stereo components, the connected car circuits rating must be higher than the sum of each components fuse. When no car circuits are rated high enough, connect the unit directly to the battery.

Connection example

Notes (-A) Be sure to connect the ground (earth) lead before connecting the amplier. The alarm will only sound if the built-in amplier is used. Tips (-B) When connecting only a single CD changer or other optional device, connect directly to this unit. For connecting two or more CD changers or other optional devices, the source selector XA-C40 (not supplied) is necessary.

Notes on the control and power supply leads The power antenna (aerial) control lead (blue) supplies +12 V DC when you turn on the tuner. When your car has built-in FM/AM antenna (aerial) in the rear/ side glass, connect the power antenna (aerial) control lead (blue) or the accessory power supply lead (red) to the power terminal of the existing antenna (aerial) booster. For details, consult your dealer. A power antenna (aerial) without a relay box cannot be used with this unit. Memory hold connection When the yellow power supply lead is connected, power will always be supplied to the memory circuit even when the ignition switch is turned off. Notes on speaker connection Before connecting the speakers, turn the unit off. Use speakers with an impedance of 4 to 8 ohms, and with adequate power handling capacities to avoid its damage. Do not connect the speaker terminals to the car chassis, or connect the terminals of the right speakers with those of the left speaker. Do not connect the ground (earth) lead of this unit to the negative () terminal of the speaker. Do not attempt to connect the speakers in parallel. Connect only passive speakers. Connecting active speakers (with built-in ampliers) to the speaker terminals may damage the unit. To avoid a malfunction, do not use the built-in speaker leads installed in your car if the unit shares a common negative () lead for the right and left speakers. Do not connect the units speaker leads to each other. Note on connection If speaker and amplier are not connected correctly, FAILURE appears in the display. In this case, make sure the speaker and amplier are connected correctly.
