I know it is likely that no one here may be able to answer this question, but why not ask anyway.

My friend's blazer(http://www.caraudio.com/forum/car-audio-build-logs-*new*/460268-blazer-box-build-7-6cuft-30-5hz-2-15-psi-hcs-dsc-power-aeros-*whoisasdf*.html) is set up running passive at the moment with a set of PGold RSDs in each door.

Well he current headunit is a 9886. Great headunit. Great interface, just lacks EQ and crossover abilities.

He just picked up a 9813 for a steal and we are going to take his blazer active using it. For ref:Alpine CDA-9813 CD/MP3/WMA Receiver with CD Changer Controls at Crutchfield.com (http://www.crutchfield.com/S-o7DFGlHI75G/p_500CDA9813/Alpine-CDA-9813.html)

He wants to keep the 9886 in there(I dont blame him) in order to take advantage of Ipod and USB drives.


Plain and simple, it the a way to tie the two headunits together so that the 9886 is the source, and the 9813 becomes an separate EQ/Line-out if you will?

Does that me sense?

Something with the AI-Net Connectors on the alpines? I would not be surprised at all if this is possible.

if he wants to keep the functionality of the 9886 but have more tuning abilities tell him to sell the 9813 and buy the imprint kit.

9833,9835,9855,9887 all have bass engine pro
and imprint kit adds the bass engine pro( with a few little limitations) read the imprint manual.

No he has the 9886. He just got a 9813 for like $100. I would just like ipod and usb capability of the 9886, and the EQ and XO of the 9813.

ok so how many times do we have to say that imprint kit does the same things as 9813?
you cant tie 2 units together man just like you cant connect 2 PCs via usb and expect to get twice as much power...

one last attempt

Sound Processing
Imprint: By adding this PXA-H100 Imprint box to a compatible Alpine head unit, a car's inherent acoustic shortcomings can be overcome with the MultEQ feature. Imprint also gives you much more sound adjustment flexibility as detailed below.

MultEQ: MultEQ, developed by Audyssey Labs, automatically optimizes the audio for the listening environment inside your vehicle. The Imprint box and tuning kit include the hardware, software, and microphone necessary to measure multiple positions in the car and capture frequency and time domain information from the vehicle's actual acoustical environment. Once the car's speaker location delays are measured, along with the frequency peaks and dips caused by the absorptive and reflective materials in the interior, MultEQ creates a set of equalization filters to correct the frequency response and time domain problems for each speaker in the vehicle. It also removes sound distortion caused by the specific acoustical problems in the vehicle by applying unique FIR filters, using more than 500 points along the frequency spectrum per channel. This optimizes the sound reproduction to the specific vehicle listening environment with much greater precision than can be achieved using typical graphic or parametric equalization. The result is a more accurate soundstage and smoother, more natural sound optimized to match your vehicle.

Equalizer: 10 typical equalizer settings are preset at the factory for a variety of musical source material. You can select from - Flat, Pops, Rock, News, Jazz & Blues, Electrical Dance, Hip Hop & Rap, Easy Listening, Country, and Classical. The head unit will also save six custom EQ curves you create by adjusting the units built-in EQ. Choose the parametric or graphic EQ:

•5- Band Parametric EQ: The built-in Parametric EQ allows you to adjust the following 5 frequency bands in 1/3 octave steps from -6 to +6 dB at a bandwidth Q factor of 1, 1.5, or 3
◦Band 1: 20 Hz to 80 Hz
◦Band 2: 50 Hz to 200 Hz
◦Band 3: 125 Hz to 3.2 kHz
◦Band 4: 315 Hz to 8 kHz
◦Band 5: 800 Hz to 20 kHz
•7-Band Graphic EQ: The built-in Graphic EQ allows you to adjust the following 7 frequencies from -6 to +6 dB
◦Band 1: 63 Hz
◦Band 2: 150 Hz
◦Band 3: 400 Hz
◦Band 4: 1 kHz
◦Band 5: 2.5 kHz
◦Band 6: 6.3 kHz
◦Band 7: 17.5 kHz
Crossover: The active crossover can be used as a 2.2 channel (3-way; low-pass subwoofer, band-pass midrange, high-pass tweeter) or a 4.2 channel (2-way; high-pass front and rear, low-pass subwoofer). A crossover limits the frequencies delivered to a given speaker, so you send only the frequencies for which the speaker is well suited. The crossover adjusts the high pass filter or low pass filter of each band along with the slope and output level. You can adjust the following crossover settings:

•4.2 Channel:
◦High Pass Filter: the front and rear outputs are individually adjustable; crossover from 20 to 200 Hz in 1/3 octave steps with a slope of Flat, 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/oct, additionally you can adjust the output level from -12 to 0 dB
◦Low Pass Filter: the subwoofer output can be stereo or mono; crossover from 20 to 200 Hz in 1/3 octave steps with a slope of Flat, 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/oct, additionally you can adjust the output level from -12 to 0 dB
•2.2 Channel:
◦Tweeter/High Pass Filter: crossover from 1 kHz to 20 kHz in 1/3 octave steps with a slope of 6, 12, 18, or 24 dB/oct, additionally you can adjust the output level from -12 to 0 dB
◦Midrange/Band Pass Filter: a band pass has both high pass and low pass filters; HPF 20 to 200 Hz in 1/3 octave steps with a slope of Flat, 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/oct; LPF from 20 Hz to 20 kHz in 1/3 octave steps with a slope of Flat, 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/oct, additionally you can adjust the output level from -12 to 0 dB
◦Subwoofer/Low Pass Filter: the subwoofer output can be stereo or mono; crossover from 20 to 200 Hz in 1/3 octave steps with a slope of Flat, 6, 12, 18 or 24 dB/oct, additionally you can adjust the output level from -12 to 0 dB
Time Correction: The time correction feature delays the audio signal to the speakers closer to the listener. This effectively creates a perception of increased distance for those speakers. Time Correction allows the listener to be placed at an equal distance from all speakers for optimum staging. You can adjust the distance of each speaker and subwoofer (6-channel) to the listener from 0 to 132.7 inches.

Media Xpander: The MX (Media Xpander) function makes vocals or instruments sound distinct by restoring sound quality typically lost during recording or transmission; this function helps restore audio information that becomes obscured when audio is compressed. The MX function can be applied to all sources, except AM radio. There are three settings and each source can have its own setting.
