Hooking harmon kardon drive + play with ipod to sony cdx 310

Can you hook up the Harmon kardon drive + play output to the (bus in) on the back of the CDX 310 and have it work so you are not hanging a wire out of the stereo (front Aux input?) If you can, do you then need to add a bus controller so that it will work? Everything works fine when I use the Aux input on the front of the unit, but I would like to install it with no wires attached to the front of the unit so it will not be obvious to thieves that an ipod is attached.

Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.

SOURCE: sony cdx mp40 bus audio in

ok dont know if you will check up on this but fm transmitters are all garbage. for true undistorted sound go to an electronics store and ask for a rca to headphone cable. then just hook it up to the rca input and run the cable out of either the unit or somewhere on the dash. this will alow for a true connection and if you buy a brand name cable i.e. monster, radioshack, sony etc. should sound amazing. always happy to help.

The multichanger has to be connected,with a cd in, but then the head unit will play whatever is fed to the bus in sockets. This effectively means the multichanger is playing to itself. If you want both to work, use a pair of piggy back rca leads into the head unit, one to the cd, one to the mp3. Then break into the cd leads and feed one of the pairs, one +ve, one -ve to a double pole switch so that you cut the sound from the cd allowing the mp3 in. To play cd's, flick the switch.

SOURCE: Turning off sony cdx-gt170 display

Hold the volume button down until the clock setting comes on. Then press the same button until you see "Demo:On" on the screen. Turn the volume either up or down to change the setting and then hold the volume button down until you see "AUX" or "TUNER" on the main screen again.

Can i hook up a mp3 to the back of a sony cdx-gt400


No, but you can hook it to the aux port on the front. It will not control the player, but it will play the music you select on the player.

There is a auxiliary button on the sony cdx-m8800. Is there a way to hook up an IPOD? The stereo also has MP3 written on the inside face. Thanks


Contrary to the below Expert's testimony, the UK CDX-M880 has a REAR AUX connector that will enable you to play your iPod through your car's stereo.

You will not be able to control the ipod's interface through the radio. You will have to use the control on the iPod .

You require a Male 3.5mm extension cable like the following...

No sub when listening to a cd


you're using the wrong remote output wire. You have it hooked to the power ANTenna wire (blue) which turns off when not using the tuner. You need to use the REM OUT wire (blue w/ white stripe).

I tryed to use the red and white plug ins in the back to hook my ipod up but when i play my ipod i hear the ipod and either the radio or a cd is it possible for me to b able to hook my ipod up with out...


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.

Cannot play my portable audio device with Sony cdx c500x


It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!

Having problems hooking up an ipod.


The "bus audio input" works as an auxiliary input on some Sony decks, but not all. For the others, you need an auxiliary input adapter like this one: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Yln489DwSWp/cgi-bin/prodview.asp?i=127AUXONS You can also use a Sony iPod adapter that will charge the iPod and let you control it through the head unit controls: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-Yln489DwSWp/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?g=305250&I=158XA110IP&search=sony+iPod

MD/CD Changer Control Options


press source button repeatedly to select "CD" or "MD" be aware that in order to connecting Ipod to a car stereo you will need to use an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end to connect iPod to your car stereo system's aux input, or use a cassette adapter if your car stereo doesn't have a sound input jack. Either of these items can be purchased at stores that sell car stereo accessories. good luck!
