View Full Version : Alpine 9835 problem; Time Correction fades in/out...???

So this problem started a few months ago. It would happen for a maybe a few minutes, then go back to normal. I originally thought it was a problem with my amp because when I first installed my amp, the RCA inputs were loose. The RCAs actually pulled the input terminal out of the amp, on 2 channels. I haven't had the time to figure out what to do about that; either send it in to US Amps or solder them myself. However, I don't think that is the problem because they are in there pretty good and the problem has gotten worse over the last couple weeks. Now it seems my Time Correction just turns itself off intermittently while driving. It's pretty obvious as my imaging is centered and then it fades away to where I can hear my left tweeter a lot more than the right one, but when I sit in the right seat it's the same, just vice versa. That's why I believe it has to be the Time Correction. Does Alpine still repair these units? Anyone have any thoughts/similar problems?

Yes. It happened with my old CDTs too. It has gotten progressively worse. My car got hit last week though so it's been in the body shop. Dammit.

Have you tried setting the ta back to zero to see if it still happens? :)

Yeah it sounds the same when I set it to zero which made me think it has to be the HU. :(

Putting T/A on a tweeter can be kind of a subtle effect. Easily heard changes in staging like that are going to be a lot more intensity related, try putting another HU in (if you can).

I can definitely hear T/A on my tweeters...and my mids too. Thanks though.
