View Full Version : Alpine TDA-5635 - pinouts & wiring harness

09-27-2007, 09:12 AM
I got this piece of equipment as a present, so as I'm planning to swap my ol' JVC El Chameleon with Alpine CDA-9853, I would like to put this processor in my car just for one reason - spectrum analyzer (yeah, I know it sounds stupid, but I'm weak to these gizmo's ;) )

As you can see from the picture above, there is no wiring harness, and if not necessary, I'd like NOT to mess with PCB if not absolutely necessary. (the Ai Net cable is cut off, but that isn't a problem, because I got other piece of cable that went further to CD changer, which I can use to fix that issue)

Sooo.. I need all the help with pinout of this white connector. Maybe someone's got some of these old stuff and if you can help me out with these, I would be VERY thankful for your help.

Few more pics after polishing front display and some dissasembling and cleaning:

This is the only picture of this unit I managed to find on the web, so if it works, it should look something like this:

I searched pacparts.com (Alpine's part supplier) but that model number does not exist in there database.

Yesterday I installed CDA-9853 in the car. Before that, I had a JVC KD-LX330R "El Chameleon" headunit. The difference is obvious. More detail, improved soundstaging after (quick) adjusting of TC parameters...

As I couldn't find pinouts for the 5635, I dissasembled the unit and there is a little surprise-factor beneath the PCB :D

Clearly marked pinout :)

5635, powered up. What a beauty :D

One more little thing to do, connecting the AiNet cable, and testing compatibility with 9853 :) :)

frzninvt, thanks for help :)
