Re: Ipod plugged in front RCA

Please first check whether Sub Woofer works independently?

I have pluged a kca420i & ipod into my alpine-9855r but i'm only getting music in the left speekers

Let's do some inexpensive troubleshooting. At the amp switch the rca jacks and see if you still get sound. If you get sound out of the left speaker then the right side output needs to be repaired. But if you get sound out out of the right speaker only then you have a problem with the preout of the stereo and the stereo will need to be repaired. Hope this helps.

Hope can i send an input from I pod or TV into the

If you are asking how to send audio from your iPod or TV to a stereo receiver, you will need an adapter for the iPod but may not need one for your TV.

For the TV:
Check the back for two red-and-white round plugs: these are called RCA jacks. Most TVs will have "RCA IN" but fewer will have "RCA OUT (sometimes called MONITOR)." If you do have RCA outputs, simply find an RCA cable (with red-and-white male connectors on each end) that's long enough and connect it to an input on the back of the receiver. It doesn't matter which one.

If you don't have RCA outputs, you MIGHT be able to use a VCR if the VCR has RCA outputs. In that case you would connect your TV cable to the "RF IN" on the VCR. Then plug the yellow (video) RCA connector to the "RCA IN" on your TV, and the red-and-white connectors to your receiver. Then all of your audio would come out of the stereo instead of the TV. This can get complicated, however, because now you will be changing channels either on the cable box or DVR or wherever your TV comes from, or if you don't use a box you will change them on the VCR remote (because the TV will now be on "RCA IN or INPUT 1" at all times). In addition you will control the volume with the stereo remote.

For the iPod:
The best solution is to find a small adapter (I think Griffin makes one) that plugs into your iPod and transmits over a radio frequency you set. So for example, you change the adapter to FM 89.1, and then tune your stereo to 89.1, and as long as the iPod is reasonably close to your radio, the music will play. This is great because not only do you not have to hook up any wires, but it works on ANY radio (alarm clocks, shower radios, and car stereos)! Just be mindful when you purchase the adapter. You do not want to buy a radio transmitter intended for the car, which uses a 12V cigarette lighter plug, and try to use it at home. And if you buy one intended for home, keep in mind it won't let you charge the iPod in the car.

Good luck!

Where are the amps and how do i by pass them for the stereo

The amps are located inside the radio. Most in-dash receivers that provide for "pre-amp outputs" also called "low level outputs" do so by providing female RCA type jacks. These are often found at the end of a short (4 - 6 inch) cable and are usually color coded red & white or red & black (some receivers provide a yellow RCA jack for video in / out, too). To use these RCA audio jacks, you need to realize that one jack is for the left channel source and the other is for the right channel source for a stereo signal. You will have to connect a compatible plug and cable of enough length to extend to a remote amplifier's RCA input jacks. The vehicle's speakers would also need to be connected directly to the same amplifier's output terminals. Using the two audio (left and right) RCA jacks will only allow the radio to control balance of the left and right audio, no fader (front and rear) control is possible. To get fader control, you'd have to either have a radio with four RCA low level output jacks (front L & R *and* rear L & R), or use the radio's speaker (or high level output) wires and connect them to the amplifier's speaker (or high level) input terminals.

All unused receiver wires should be terminated in a wirenut or securely wrapped in electrical tape to prevent accidental contact with grounded metal or other wires behind the dash.

I hope this helps!

Will the Kenwood KDC 1032 RCA outputs work with an ipod adapter similar to an aux output? If so, how?

Hi, if you are trying to get your I-pod to play through your car stereo, then you would need to have the RCA inputs, not outputs. If you connect your i-pod to the stereo outputs it won't work because both things are trying to push sound out of their outputs. If you connect the adapter to the stereo's inputs then it would work.

Ilo ca 3000v cd player

The RCA connections on the back of the Ilo CA3000V are exclusively for XM radio input, and do not send a 'low level' signal required for your amplifier to operate. You will need to have a 'high level' input on your amplifier to get a signal from the Ilo, this will be driven off the speaker wires themselves.

Auxilary RCA inputs have no volume control

Your problem stems from the fact that the CDA-7892 is not equipped with an RCA aux-input jack. If you're plugged into RCA connectors at the back of the head unit, they're outputs, not inputs. The sound you hear is just feeding back through the outputs and into the head unit's amplifier. If you want to play your iPod through this head unit, you need to purchase either the auxiliary input adapter (KCA-121B) or iPod adapter (KCA-420i).
