Question about JVC Ks-U58 Input Adapter To Stereo Mini Plug
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.
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.
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.
hope it helps

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.
