Anyone out there with Alpine CD player with Glidetouch (CDA9855/9853etc)??

I got the Alpine CDA9853 headunit, and I can't seem to store any radio stations. I've followed the instructions, not that I would need to because it's self-explanatory.

Does anyone have satellite radio radio in the car?

I chose my station and held a preset channel for more than two seconds, theoretically it should store it (a beep or a flash should confirm this), but nothing happens, even after holding onto a channel for around 10secs.
By the way, I'm pretty sure there's nothing wrong with the wiring because the unit remembers what station I was listening to after I switch off the car. But I'm not the most technical person in the world, so maybe I'm wrong.

How do i wire my svc subs to be at 2- ohms?

Also, is there a way of turning up/down bass and treble like the other Alpine models i.e. CDA9857, 9850, etc. rather than going into Menu and finding what I want (it takes loads of time!).
It's just that I've played around with the 9857 and 9850 models and I find the quick selection of bass and treble very convinient and easy to use.

Call the place where you got it from, sounds like you are overlooking something or that the stereo has a default

Anyone know where i can find a magazine cartridge for a Panasonic CX-DP601 CD changer? (99 Audi A4)?

I have a CDA 9855 with the glidetouch. To store a radio station, choose your station, select your preset by touching the bar, do NOT let go, and press down on the bar. This will set it to that station.

Whats the next step to my car stereo sound system?

I believe the 9853 has a built in EQ, meaning that there isn't just a bass and treble setting but a frequency setting. I'm not sure about this but the 9855 has a built-in EQ. To set the EQ, hold down the "Menu" button for a few seconds and the parameter menus will come up. Here you can set cross-over points, time adjustments, and Equalizer settings.

Hope this helps!
