Re: How do I add an Aux input?

Does your Alpine support the ALPINE AI NET adapter?

If so, this will work;

Otherwise, you might want to get an FM Transmitter;

Best of Luck.

Alpine CDA 9827 using aux mode with ipod shuffle via rca inputs

Unfortunately, the rca outputs are to control an amplifier or crossover. They do make an ipod adapter for that radio, which allows you to control the ipod through the radio. Best Buy or any Alpine dealer should carry something for around $25.

Can i connect ipod adaptor to rca output jacks?

With out an input jack you cannot connect straight to your head unit. The RCA out puts only send a signal out. Your best bet is use an FM transmitter for your Ipod. The sound wont be as good but I can't think of another way with buying a new head unit.

you have to buy the ipod connection kit to pioneer, but if your deck have RCA input at the back..all you need is Y cable 2 (RCA male - 35mm jack)

RCA will be connected to DECK, 35 mm jack to your ipod.

to use your ipod...change the input setting on your deck to AUX (auxillary) most deck have this for CD Changer connection

Good Luck

MP3, IPOD, CD doesn't appear when I press "Source"


If you read your owner's maunal, page 26, the USB is designed for a flash drive (up to 4GB), not an Ipod.
If you would like to play your iPOD, purchase the IPC008 (Ipod Lead) and you're done!

I have a CDE-9872 and it wont pick up my ipod touch

Add Alpine's optional "Full Speed" connection cable and you'll be able to use the CDE-9872 to control your iPod. -Crutchfields website

This is compatible with first and second generation iPods touch.
fyi- if you have a mini-stereo aux in jack on the deck you can connect a ipod touch compatible mini stereo cable to the earphone jack of your ipod.

Ipod Connection through RCA Cable

Actually, what I think gbaity is doing is utilizing his IP(Interactive Pioneer)-Bus port in the back of the DEH-P3000, which is an input port designed to allow the deck to use an external multi-disk CD changer. All you need is the CD changer, then change the input source from your deck to "M-CD". There are folks on eBay and other places that sell a cable that pluggs into that very same port. They are designed to allow the unit to accept input through the IP-Bus from an ipod or just about any low-level input that you can pass through the RCA jacks. I have the same deck, and also just purchased an ipod cable for the IP-Bus, and it also does not work. I have been told that I need to switch the "M-CD" input source to "AUX" as the input, but I do not know how to do that. pressing the input source button only displays "CD", "M-CD", and "FM/AM". Does anyone know how to add "AUX" to the choices or otherwise show us how to make these cables work? Thanks - TomR
