Question about Jensen CD2610 CD Player

1 Answer

Jensen cd 2610 aux input has little volume

I just recently bought a headphone jack to rca cable so I could hook up my mp3 player to my car stereo via the aux input. The problem is that there is very little sound coming out of the speakers with the head unit at full volume, and as I turn up the volume of the mp3 player it starts to cut out (from maybe to much power into the rca jacks?)all in all I have roughly 1/3 the volume in aux than I do in cd or radio mode. from what I've read the rca jacks are there to hook up an aux cd player like the walkman or mp3 player. Is the unit faulty or am I going about this wrong

    The rca jacks I'm plugging into are not the pre amp out jacks they are line in rca's. I don't think I would have any sound out of the speakers if they were out put jacks (let alone an mp3 player or head unit). I just thought that somone might know if and how to adjust input power. the manual says nothing about power or adjustment and I can't find it in the head unit menu.

First of all the rca jacks in the back of your radio are for plugging in an amp, not your mp3 player. there should be an auxiliary jack(looks like a headphones jack) in the front of the head unit. if there is no auxiliary jack in the front then you will have to go buy a new head unit with an auxiliary jack.

Will my mp3 play in my sonyTa-Ax301 Integrated Amplifier


You need a 3.5mm to stereo phono/RCA cable
30117e72-b1d8-4c87-a816-ed8245f7fbe9.png

Plug the red and white ends in to any of the following sockets that are free - Tuner, Tape In, CD, Aux, Video In. They all do the same job. The names are just suggestions, they're not mandatory.

Plug the headphone jack plug in to the MP3 player's headphone socket. Turn the volume up on the MP3 player to about half way. Then select the source input on the amp that matches where you plugged the cable.

That's it. Hope this helps

How do I hook up my ipod to my pioneer vsx d409 ?


The best way is to use a 3,5mm stereo jack to 2 RCA cable like this:
technical114_34.jpg
You can easily find one like this at your local audio/electronics shop or buy one on line. You have to connect the RCA at any free stereo input at the back of your Pioneer (like aux or cd). Take a look at this picture:
technical114_35.jpg
After this you can use the 3.5mm stereo jack for connecting not only your ipod but every mp3 player or other device has an earphone jack. Just plug the 3.5mm jack at the earphone jack and rise the volume at the portable device up to the middle of the volume range and set your Pioneer input selector at the stereo input that you connect the 2 RCA before (aux or cd)

In case of a problem or clarification or further details needed, don't hesitate to post me a reply before rejecting my answer.
If you are satisfied, rate my solution with the "thumbs" or (even better) add a testimonial.

How do you hook up your ipod through the rca cable hookups in the back without the radio still playing?


This is different on every stereo, but generally the RCA ports in the back of the stereo are labeled "Aux" or something to that extent.

First, you must purchase a headphone jack to RCA cable which can connect to both your stereo and your ipod.

Connect the cable, turn your ipod on and start playing a song. Turn the volume on the stereo to a moderate volume so you can hear when the song is being played through your stereo. Then, using the selector switch, turn the stereo from "Radio" to "Aux" or whatever it says next to the the RCA plug ins on the back.

Can I stream mp3 to Bose lifestyle50


Sure, you can hook up any mp3 player to this system. What you will need is a headphone to stereo RCA cable. Then, plug the headphone connection into the mp3 headphone jack and the RCA ends into your Bose aux input.You can use any of the inputs (Video 1, 2, Tape) just remember which one you are plugged into.

Can I plug my MP3 player into the aux. socket on my car radio, with the appropriate cable and play the stored music?


You should be able to do that as long as you have the right cable.

Most of the mp3 players have a "mini-stereo" jack (3.5mm) and some car stereos have the same type of jack for "aux" input, and others car stereos have RCA jacks for the "aux" input.

Even if the jacks are not the same type, you can use an adapter cable that converts the mini-stereo jack to an RCA jack. You can find them at many places like Best Buy, Circuit City or Radio Shack.

Depending on the type of car stereo you have, you would normally press the source button to change between the tuner, cd player, aux or whatever you may have connected to the stereo. You may even have a seperate button to press for the "aux" input.

I hope this was helpful to you, if you need more information just ask, and please give more info on the type of mp3 player and the make and model number of the car stereo.

Hook up IPOD


I am not sure if the model you have supports iPod control, but if it has an input jack in the front, you can use a cable from the headphone jack into the Aux jack in the front of the stereo and when there is a cable inserted into the jack you will be able to select Aux with the source button.
The other option is to get a kit installed at your car stereo place that will allow you to connect it via 3rd party hardware.

Cheers

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).
