Question about JVC Ks-U58 Input Adapter To Stereo Mini Plug

KS-U58 JVC Input Adapter Cable

My JVC headunit does not have an auxiliary input, so I'm considering purchasing this cable. Crutchfield.com and other places online offer this cable for about $40 and the picture shows some type of converter box for it. However, all the KS-U58 cables on ebay.com do not have this box but are still advertised as the same cable and are offered for $14 shipped.

My question:
What exactly does this box do, and is it really necessary? It is very tempting to buy this cable for 1/3 of the price, but I do not want to risk damaging my iPod or headunit.

    I also am looking for the KS-U58 adapter and am wondering what the black box on the unit that is sold at online retail stores does vs the ones on ebay which do not have the box. Is this just a ground loop back and is it nessisary?

Just installed a 'generic' KS-U57 (same as the KS-U58, but terminates in a RCA, $7 on ebay) that has the same black box--except I cracked the black box open and found that it is empty (only contains soldered connections). I imagine that the authentic JVC is the same.
I have a noise problem (engine static), but it is because my mp3 player is charged by the cigarette lighter--unplugging it eliminates the noise, so as far as I can tell, there is no need for a noise filter inside the KS-U57.

Yes - in order to connect an external source, you'd need either the
KS-U57 or KS-U58, depending on the type of input connection you require.

Kind Regards

Thank you, I had been wondering if it was in fact a ground loop or noise filter.

    You dont need any of the cables above if you want to connect you ipod or mp3 player, my son has the JVC KDSH1000, all youdo is pull the stereo out, and you should see two speaker jack plugs, one red and one white, see what plug you need for them, what you need is a red and white phono jack on one end, and a single phono jack for the other end to go into the head phone jack on your ipod or mp3,plug the two phono plugs into the two on the car stereo, then the other end into the ipod or mp3 player head phone jack,, turn on your car stereo, then source then go to line in, turn your ipod or mp3 on and play your music through your car stereo.

I had bought the cable on ebay that has the RCA inputs for $1.99...I wish I had bought the actual part. There is so much noise interference, every time I accelerate you can hear the "revving" of my engine through my speakers. So I am thinking the "box" is a ground loop/noise filter.

How do you turn off the demo on the jvc car radio


Hello gusjandreau,

Press and hold the SEL button until the receiver enters the PSM mode (until the display changes). Use the left/right rocker switch until the display reads DEMO. Turn the volume knob until display reads DEMO OFF. Briefly press SEL to exit PSM mode.

Hope this helps.

Using an external mp3 player on my JVC KD-LX111


You could try using an FM transmitter which plugs into the earphone jack on your Mp3 player, then all you have to do is tune the radio to pick up the transmitters frequency.

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

Audio in


Unfortunately, the "Bus audio in" jacks are only for use with Sony add-on components, like Sony CD changers. Without a Sony component connected to the Bus control jack, the audio input can't be selected. To add an auxiliary input to this head unit, you need to purchase an adapter: http://www.crutchfield.com/S-EMPSKmYtPsH/cgi-bin/ProdView.asp?search=sony+aux&i=127AUXONS

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal


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.
