I have my ipod hooked up to the rca's in the back of the radio but there is very little volume. nothing i do seems to help. i have the aux on but still barely any sound comes out. am i doing something...

Hi, the RCAs in the back are usually outputs, not inputs. The specs on this unit indicate that AUX input is optional. Are the jacks you're using marked AUX input? If yes, what kind of cable are you using to adapt the iPod to the RCAs? If no, you may need to buy an adapter. There is one here:
I got this link from the spec sheet here:

Hook up an ipod to this stereo

Get the Alpine KCA 420i adapter. I've had it for about 3 years and no problems. You can install the module anywhere and run the wire for the ipod just about anywhere. You can go through all of your ipod folders on the headunit. However, you will find out quickly that it can be a pain using the Alpine headunit interface tiresome on the CDA 9830 model and others similar from a few years back. I don't know if other head units have solved this issue.

Ipod control?

You can purchase the KCA-420i and connect it to to the ai-net port behind the headunit. This will allow you to send signal from your ipod to your alpine headunit while still retaining your operating functions to the ipod. Can be purchased for about 10 bucks on ebay.

KCA- 420i and an alpine 9854r Can't change the volume for Ipod

There is a small switch on the unit's housing, switch it to "Norm" position.

IPOD hook up?

you need to purchase (if you do not have it already) the KCA-420i Alpine Interface Adapter for iPod (item # 500KCA420i). and connect it to the aux input socket

No sound from subs and rear speakers...

Make sure the Ipod is plugged into the AV input source. Then you may have to go through the menu to select AV1 or AV2 input. This should take care of the problem. Good luck

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).

Error message E-60

First, run a chkdsk (or scandisk) to your Ipod from your computer (like any other hard disk drive on your computer)since it is probable that the Ipod's hard disk drive may contain errors. Then, follow these steps: 1.) Disconnect the Ipod from the KCA-IP500(the Ipod interface) 2.) Press and hold the middle button and the top button at the same time. 3.) The Apple Logo should appear. 4.) Reconnect your Ipod to the KCA-IP500 5.) The head unit should display loading and then respond to the IPOD interface.
