We at Alpine hope that your new SWD-2030 will give you many years of listening enjoyment. In case of problems when installing your SWD-2030, please contact your authorised Alpine dealer. This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in serious injury or death. CAUTION DO NOT DISASSEMBLE OR ALTER. Doing so may result in an accident, fire or electric shock. KEEP SMALL OBJECTS SUCH AS BOLTS OR SCREWS OUT OF THE REACH OF CHILDREN. Swallowing them may result in serious injury. If swallowed, consult a doctor immediately. USE THE CORRECT AMPERE RATING WHEN REPLACING FUSES. Failure to do to may result in fire or electric shock. USE ONLY IN CARS WITH A 12 VOLT NEGATIVE GROUND. (Check with your dealer if you are not sure.) Failure to do so may result in fire, etc. BEFORE WIRING, DISCONNECT THE CABLE FROM THE NEGATIVE BATTERY TERMINAL. Failure to do so may result in electric shock or injury due to electrical shorts. DO NOT SPLICE INTO ELECTRICAL CABLES. Never cut away cable insulation to supply power to other equipment. Doing so will exceed the current carrying capacity of the wire and result in fire or electric shock. DO NOT ALLOW CABLES TO BECOME ENTANGLED IN SURROUNDING OBJECTS. Arrange the wiring and cables in compliance with the manual to prevent obstructions when driving. Cables or wiring that obstruct or hang up on places such as the steering wheel, gear lever, brake pedals, etc. can be extremely hazardous. DO NOT DAMAGE PIPES OR WIRING WHEN DRILLING HOLES. When drilling holes in the chassis for installation, take precautions so as not to contact, damage or obstruct pipes, fuel lines, tanks or electrical wiring. Failure to take such precautions may result in fire.
DO NOT USE BOLTS OR NUTS IN THE BRAKE OR STEERING SYSTEMS TO MAKE GROUND CONNECTIONS. Bolts or nuts used for the brake, steering systems (or any other safety related system), or any storage tanks should NEVER be used for installations or ground connections. Using such parts could disable control of the vehicle and/or cause fire, etc. HALT USE IMMEDIATLEY IF A PROBLEM APPEARS. Failure to do so may cause personal injury or damage to the product. Return it to your Authorised Alpine Dealer or the nearest Alpine Service Centre for repairing. EN DO NOT OPERATE ANY FUNCTION THAT TAKES YOUR ATTENTION AWAY FROM SAFELY DRIVING YOUR VEHICLE. Any function that requires your prolonged attention should only be performed after coming to a complete stop. Always stop the vehicle in a safe location before performing these functions, Failure to do so may result in an accident. This symbol means important instructions. Failure to heed them can result in injury or property damage CAUTION MAKE THE CORRECT CONNECTIONS. Failure to make the proper connections may result in fire or product damage. ROUTE THE WIRING TO ENSURE IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE. Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wires insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole. DO NOT BLOCK VENTS OR RADIATOR PANELS. Doing so may cause heat to build up inside and may result in fire. USE SPECIFIED ACCESSORY PARTS AND INSTALL THEM SECURLEY.

Type of Lead Additional Information
Remote turn on lead Ground lead Battery power lead Connect the remote cable coming from the radio. In case your radio does not provide a remote signal, the SWD-2030 will generate it from the radio outputs and switch on and off together with the radio. A remote cable may also be connected when using High-Power radio outputs, but in general this is not necessary. Attach securely and safely to a bare metal spot of the car’s chassis. Connect directly to the positive terminal of the car’s battery.
Memo • This product cannot be used with cars fitted with a common negative speaker system. • Speaker impedance must be 3.2 ~ 8 ohms. • To prevent external noise from entering the audio system: • Locate the unit and route the leads at least 10 cm away from the car harness. • Keep the battery power leads as far away from other leads as possible. • Connect the ground lead securely and safely to a bare metal spot (remove the coating if necessary) of the car chassis. • If you add an optional noise suppressor, connect it as far away from the unit as possible. Your Alpine Dealer carries various Alpine noise suppressors, contact them for further information. • Your Alpine Dealer knows best about noise prevention measures so consult your dealer for further information. 8 3. CHECK 1 Secure all loose cables. CAUTION - ARRANGE THE WIRING SO IT IS NOT CRIMPED OR PINCHED BY A SHARP METAL EDGE. Route the cables and wiring away from moving parts (like the seat EN rails) or sharp or pointed edges. This will prevent crimping and damage to the wiring. If wiring passes through a hole in metal, use a rubber grommet to prevent the wires insulation from being cut by the metal edge of the hole. 2 Reconnect the negative lead to the battery terminal 3 By switching on the head unit, verify that the subwoofer is working. 4 Check that all electrical functions of the car are operational. (lights, indicators, horn etc.) 4. ADJUSTMENT 1. Input mode selector (line or high-level) 2. Indicator for auto-remote by radio outputs 3. Volume level adjustment 4. Remote signal indicator 5. Adjustment lowpass filter 6. Indicator Low Battery 7. Phase shift adjust
CAUTION DO NOT EXCEED THE INPUT LEVEL SPECIFIED FOR THIS PRODUCT. If there is distortion or a popping noise from the subwoofer the input level is too high. If the subwoofer has prolonged use in this condition, this may result in deterioration of performance or may cause damage to the subwoofer. 9
4. ADJUSTMENT 1. Before powering-up the system, please adjust as follows: Depending on what input signal you use (Line or speaker input) : Level to Min, LPF to middle position (75Hz) and Phase Shift to 0°. 2. Set the radio bass and treble adjust to "0" or "neutral". Adjust the radio volume to an average level. Use music that you are familiar with. This is helpful to find the optimal adjustments. EN 3. Now slowly turn up the input sensitivity until the sound quality seems balanced. Do not adjust the input sensitivity too high, as distortion may occur. Too high radio volume will also cause significant distortion. Make sure that the sound of the other speakers is undistorted before you continue. Reduce the radio volume when you hear audible distortion. 4. After the input sensitivity has been adjusted, set your lowpass filter according to the highpass filters of the other speakers. We recommend 75Hz, which is center position. 5. Adjusting the lowpass filter changes the sound of the subwoofer. Repeat steps 3 and 4 until the optimum is found. 6. Last adjustment is the phase shift. Turn the control very slowly between 0° and 180° while listening to music in the usual listening position. Listen to the sound and keep the adjustment position that sounds best and most balanced in its spectrum. The optimal adjustment depends on many acoustical factors and shape of the vehicle, as well as the distance of the subwoofer to the listening position.
