View Full Version : Alpine PXA Imprint PXA-H100 and pioneer headunit

Hi, i've got a pioneer App radio 2 (SPH DA100) which has very limited auto processing capabilities, with a 6 band EQ i cant get the system sounding how i want.

Im looking to use an Alpine Imprint PXA-H100 as a separate processor, but have heard you need an Alpine headunit to interface with it properly?

The only control i would need from the headunit would be volume on the move, which i would assume it would still do this via the rca output anyway?

This way i could set the imprint away to eq my system and set things before hand, then forget about it when I'm on the move.

I have a small separate subwoofer processor menu on the headunit, which again i assume the volume just controls the separate sub rca outputs, so would i also be able to control subwoofer level through the headunit when I'm on the move? This is the only real other thing i would wish to have control over.

My final question is that whilst I'm running a 4 channel amp for the door speakers, and a separate amp for the subs, my headunit only has rca's for front speakers, then rca's for either rear speakers or sub output, so my front and rear channels are bridged to give me a sub output. So, considering I'm effectively only running 3 channels, how much benefit would adding an imprint system give me?

My setup is;
Rainbow SLX 265 front comps running passive
Rainbow DLC 6.2 rear comps running passive
Rainbow Vanadium 10" sub in a 0.6cu/ft sealed enclosure
Rockford T400-4 amp for door speakers (Running in 2 channel mode)
Rockford T600-2 amp for sub (Bridged)

Yes, you are right in saying you need an Alpine Ai-Net headunit to use the PXA-H100. The PXA-800, however, has analog inputs you could use your Pioneer headunit to drive it. You will also need the H800's controller to make 'on the fly' adjustments. Hope this helps.

In case that my post is not edited in the proper place, I ask the moderator to move it.
I paired a PXA-H100 with 9884R and during my first measurement trial, I realize that my phone was forgotten inside the car and it rang.
This first trial I chose to delete it being affected by the call.
I deleted and I remember that I had been constrained by the software to push including the reset button from the screen.
I think that this was my bad luck moment because all the follow trials had the same bad results:at 12% from the measuring rise the code error - 3, which means FrontLeft speaker not detected!
I tried many times and I spent a lot of time to find out a way to overtake din step, to avoid this error, but no success.
I didn't do anything (changing positions/combinations of wires or other software modifications) between the first trial and the rest of them with errors.
Help me please with an advice.
For info:I changed the laptop from win7 into winXP to avoid any driver issue->error-3.
I changed the crossover module from FL side, the same error.
I installed and Uninstalled many times the imprint software , to clear any possible log file, nothing, the same error.
I tried both variants, 3ways and front/rear/subwoofer, nothing, the same error.
I do not understand what's the issue because the speakers are working very well!
Help please!
