BT Plus, Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling & Audio Streaming

BT Plus

Don’t fuss or fiddle with your phone and say goodbye to uncomfortable headsets and earpieces. Most importantly, stay focused on safe driving. The CDE-HD148BT is equipped with Bluetooth wireless technology so you can carry on your phone conversations in the car without additional adapters.

Easy Audio Streaming, Even with iPhone iOS 6x

Do you have a large music library on your phone? The CDE-HD148BT can stream and control your phone's music via Bluetooth, A2DP and AVRCP profiles. Want to listen to your iPhone without plugging-in? Stream your music via Bluetooth. Whether you have music on your iPhone locally, on iTunes Match or select third-party audio apps, the CDE-HD148BT can stream your tunes!

Microphone Included

Microphone IncludedThis unit comes with all that’s needed for Bluetooth convenience. The CDE-HD148BT comes with a tuned microphone that’s engineered to reduce noise interference and feedback. This allows optimal placement in your car, for the best possible sound quality.

Making, Taking Calls & Call Waiting

Making and taking phone calls has never been more convenient. You can set up your cell phone/head unit to automatically answer your calls. Use the supplied microphone to speak, and then listen through your car’s speakers. When a call comes in, your music mutes to carry the phone call. View caller information including Caller ID, Missed, Dialed, and Received calls right from the head unit display. If you receive a second call, you can have the first caller wait momentarily by pressing “2” for call waiting mode. Once both calls are finished, the mute for music is deactivated. This truly makes the transition from your phone calls to music enjoyable and convenient. You can even use the CDE-HD148BT’s preset buttons to quickly jump through your phone book, making navigation through large phone books much faster.

Hands-Free Calling Sound Customization

To bring sound balance to your hands-free experience, you can adjust the CDE-HD148BT’s mic gain, phone output and ringtone volume. If that’s not enough, there are five sound quality settings to choose from to get the balance just right for you. This flexibility will make your phone calls a pleasurable experience.

Steering Wheel Control

If your car has factory Bluetooth steering wheel controls, then it will also control your new CDE-HD148BT’s built-in Bluetooth. Or, control your head unit right from your factory installed steering wheel controls by adding a third party adapter. Use an adapter from popular brand names such as Soundgate or PAC to add this feature.

Accessible Rear USB Port and Front Aux Input

USB

With a dedicated USB input and USB cable, you can even connect USB memory devices like thumbdrives. Song lists on USB devices are displayed in alphabetical order, and allows eight levels of file / folder search capabilities. This unit will find music files while ignoring other file types on the USB device.

Note: MP3 device or cell phone cannot be independently controlled through the head unit.

Quad-Illumination

Add a cleaner look to your dash. Enjoy a well-integrated look to your dash by match the illuminated buttons on the radio to your dashboard. The CDE-HD148BT offers four different base colors to choose from: blue, red, green and amber.

Best Sound Quality

For unrivaled sound quality, expect nothing less than the best. The CDE-HD148BT uses a 24-Bit DAC for ultimate sound quality with all your digital media sources.

Built-in Equalizer

Select from 10 different EQ modes to get the best sound from all your sources (Flat/Pops/Rock/News/Jazz/Elec Dance/Hip Hop/Easy Lis/Country/Classical). If the Equalizer presets aren’t enough for your listening taste, there’s a 9-Band Parametric Equalizer you can adjust and save as a user preset for a better sound response curve.

Get a Boost in Great Sound

Power Pack

With Alpine, expect the premium sound your ears deserve. This head unit allows you to customize your crossover adjustments so you can control where you send high and low frequencies, for the best sound from your CDE-HD148BT. For a true power upgrade, just add-on the KTP-445A Power Pack to instantly increase your head unit’s power from 18W x 4 RMS to a true 45W x4 RMS (based on CEA-2006 power ratings). Now we’re talking about some serious sound!

Built-In HD Radio

HD Radio

Alpine does HD Radio. Get all the music and programming you want to hear in a crystal-clear digital format. FM stations with CD-quality sound and AM stations with FM-quality sound, both with virtually no distortion. Extend your music choice further with multi-casting capability HD1, HD2, and HD3 and you'll hear more talk and music content from the stations you already receive. Alpine’s exclusive Smart Reception Management keeps you tuned in to your favorite HD digital sub-channels, even when you’re in an area with limited digital reception.

Smart Reception Management: A Better Way to Listen to HD Radio

Traditional HD Radio equipped tuners will use an auto-switching method when listening to the main & multi-casting channels. It works really well on the main channels, however when listening to a sub-channel, you will be switched back to the main channel if the digital signal is temporarily lost. This interruption can be a frustrating experience to stay engaged on a particular multi-casting channel if the digital signal is weak. Alpine’s solution provides Smart Reception Control through the default setting “Digital MC”. The Digital MC setting uses a Hybrid method of auto-switching analog and digital on the main channel, and uses all-digital for sub-channels. Alpine’s solution keeps you on the channel you desire, resulting in a better overall HD Radio experience.

Sirius Satellite ready

With the CDE-HD148BT, you not only get music, premier sports, news, talk, entertainment, traffic and weather information when you add the SiriusXM Connect Vehicle Tuner. You also get these advanced SiriusXM features:

Tune Scan and Tune Start

Tune Scan and Tune Start are new SiriusXM features included in the CDE-HD148BT. The Tune Scan feature scans through songs from your music channel presets. You can end the Tune Scan and continue listening to the currently broadcast song in its entirety. With Tune Start, whenever you tune to a preset music channel, the current song will automatically start playing from the beginning.

Tag That Song

When you hear a song you like, simply press and hold down the CDE-HD148BT’s Volume button for two seconds. The iTunes® Tagging feature lets you Tag songs you hear on SiriusXM and stores the info on your iPhone®. The next time you connect your iPhone to iTunes, you will be able to preview your selections and then purchase and download them directly from iTunes.

It's Game Time

Want to know if your favorite NFL, NBA, NHL or college football or basketball team is playing live? The CDE-HD148BT has GameAlert™ that will display an on-screen message if your favorite teams' games are being broadcast. Jump to that station with the push of a button so you can listen to the game play by play. You can also get the latest score updates while you are listening to other stations.

Instant Replay
