Those outputs are for porting your subwoofers or speakers from your amp. In order to use the aux channel you must use the input beside it, with is called Ai/NET. It's what cd changers are commonly plugged into. I bought my cable from the local Car Audio shop. It goes from Ai/NET to female composite. Then I have male composite to male 3.5mm stereo jack to my ipod.

You must make sure where you plug in on the radio side is Aux input, most Radio Aux is at the front or come with special connector if it is at the back. Mostly radio back come with RCA is for Line out not Aux in.
The red and white RCA terminals on the back of the unit are generally outputs for amplifiers. To use AUX the unit will need to have a 3.5mm jack in the front or rear. If not than the unit does not have AUX input capabilities.
I think the red/white RCA plugs on the back of the CDE-7858 are outputs for the sub-woofer -- they won't work for aux inputs like iPod. According to Alpine dealers, the 7858 will not accept an aux input -- bummer, I had the same desire. R, Jim
It sounds like you've connected to the front or rear audio RCA output.
Pioneer CD players generally don't have a direct auxiliary input like that - what you'll have to do is get a CD-RB10 adapter(it plugs into the CD changer connector on the back, and your cable would plug into that).
The RCA red and white plugs are OUTPUTS to connect to an amplifier. You are driving one audio source against another-which isn't good.
There is no aux input to connect your iPod to.
Copy your Ipod music to a CD-R instead and then play it in the pioneer.
