Pinout of Philips RC 659 Headunit

This headunit was installed in my car in 2000. I'd like to connect an Ipod now, but not via FM transmission - not if I can avoid it in any case. Otherwise no available solutions support this discontinued product line. This unit has an option of installing a CD changer (also an Aux in) but I cant find any documentation on the pins of the "C" plug in the rear. Looks like ISO, but seems to be different. Can anyone help?

Is there an adapter I can purchase to be able to play an IPOD with my alpine cde 9841 car cd receiver stereo?


Your headunit doesn't have the option of a plug i Ipod cable, The only way to use it with your stereo is to get an FM Transmitter and you tune into the ipod through the radio.

Hello my car is equipped with a Sony CDX-L410X head unit and i want to be able to connect my ipod directly to the head unit. the head unit does not have an aux or usb port on the front does it have an...


Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

Not saying whether to buy from them or not, but their site/catalog will tell you exactly what fits your vehicle both for the headunit and speakers.

My speakers got no sound but headunit is on. fm / cd all no sound from my speaker


you might have one of the speaker leads grounded, which can cause some stereos to short to prevent damage... check your speaker connections and disconnect power to the headunit for about 5 min then repower up.

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.

Cant connect my ex 10 to my x300 head unit


Hi Jared,

The EX-10 was never intended to be an accessory to the IDA-X300, but should work with FM modulation like any other radio, by making sure the FM frequency is set the same on both units. There are four preset channels in the EX-10 but you can change each one to any frequency.

As for the bluetooth mic connection, you must have that connected for the bluetooth to work. You are better off installing a KCE-400BTi handsfree kit to get better functionality, increased phone compatibility, increased audio quality and the ability to use all of the newer iPods (Gen 2 iTouch, Gen 4 Nano and iPhone 3G).

Hope it helps,

Marcel.

I have the panasonic cq-c8303u radio and i would like to hook up the ipod to it. any tips?


You need to get the Direct Cable for iPod® (CA-DC300U) from panasonic. This allows you to plug in and control your ipod from your headunit. There is also the expansion module (CY-EM100U), however I am not sure if this is necessary if you have the Direct Cable. The Direct Cable might plug directly into the back of the headunit without the need for the expansion module. Check with the company before purchasing one or both. If the direct cable requires the expansion module, then get both, however, I think the direct cable works independent from the expansion module. Again, contact the company about this. The expansion module also lets you plug your ipod as well as other devices into your headunit, however I don't think it allows you to control them via the unit. I think if you want to control the ipod from your headunit, you just need the Direct Cable for Ipod®.

Car stereo has power but no sound.


remove headunit and check if everything was installed properly. check if the fuse on the headunit isnt blown out. check wiring for speakers, for example for some reason they became loose.

Clarion DRX9375r AM/Fm/CD Headunit optical output question.


I have the same HU and the same processor as you. First I only used the chinch cables to the processor, and from the changer.

The improvements you make; your headunit DAC and your chancher DAC wil not be used anymore. The differens; normal with a cd you convert a digitalsignal into analoge, in the HU or changer, and then you make it digital again in the processor, en put the signal analoge into your amp.

The advantage is; the processor uses the famous Burr Brown DACs and that is know by its good sound processing.

cheers mate
