Re: 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:

How to hookup a bose 321 to a toshiba 58l7300 tv

The Bose system does not appear to have HDMI output. The best-quality method would be to use Component (RGB) cables with analog audio. One RCA pair will be for audio and these are often RED & WHITE connectors, but don't have to be. Any RCA pair will work. Connect these to the Bose RED/WHITE jacks found in the "TV" labeling. Connect the other ends to the Toshiba's RED/WHITE jacks on the bottom row, first two jacks.

Now you need a Component cable. This has three RCA connectors at each end and are traditionally RED, GREEN, and BLUE. Again, colors do not matter as long as you connect the ends so they match. Under the "Component" labeling on the Bose, you will find the three colored jacks. Connect these to the Toshiba's same-colored jacks which are next to the RED/WHITE ones you used previously. These three connectors carry the video signals. They will transfer Hi-Def 1080i signals, not 1080p, but you wouldn't be able to tell the difference.

Switch the input on your TV to "Component".

The battery on my car ent dead and now my AIWA CDC-MP32 keeps displaying "please unplug auxillary plugs"


An auxiliary input allows you to select an external source and play it through the cd player's amplifier. It's often used for iPods and MP-3 players. Typically you just need an inexpensive patch cable that connects the headphone output from your portable player to the input on the CD player. After that you can select "AUX" as another source like CD or Tuner, and whatever's playing on the portable unit will be heard through the speakers.
Auxiliary inputs can be on the front or the rear of the CD player. Front aux inputs are typically 3.5mm stereo plugs, similar to a small headphone jack. Rear aux inputs can be RCA jacks or a 3.5mm jack. If you have a CD player with a rear aux input, a cable needs to be connected at the time of installation. Then the other end can be routed to whatever location in the vehicle you want to keep your portable player while you're using it with the CD player.
Front aux jacks are more convenient for quick connecting/disconnecting the portable player, but they tend to wear out over time.

Let us know if you have somethin more to ask else accept the suggestion.

How do you connect an Ipod throught the aux input?

what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.

Video Input Issue

Yes you buy an a/v cable. Most head phone jacks are 3.5 mm but they're only 2 section pins. You need the 3 section 3.5mm pin

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!

Wiring my tuner-DEH-1800 to Amp GM-5300-T into my 4 speaker system.


In most head units as in your case the Pioneer DEH-1800, there would be 2 RCA female jacks at the rear of the unit. These are your OUTPUTs.

While in most amps including your GM-5300-T, there would similar RCA jacks which would be your INPUTs.

You need to connect the output to the input using an audio cable terminated at both ends with RCA plugs. Further you need to connect the remote trigger on from the head unit to the remote/external amp to switch it on.

A more comprehensive connection diagram is available at page 6 of the GM-5300T Manual which may be downloaded from here.

Hope this be of help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.
