Question about Pioneer DEH-1500 CD Player
On the back of the unit there are right and left channel rca inputs. I connected the ipod and when the radio antenna was not plugged in, I could get connected, but when I plugged the radio antenna back in, the ipod music would only come through one of the radio channels and then it was along with the regular radio programming. How do you select the correct input?
The RCA jacks on the back of the Pioneer DEH-1500 are preamp outputs, not inputs. They are to connect an external amplifier for additional speakers or subwoofers.
The output from your iPod is probably "bleeding over" into the receiver detector stage. When the antenna is disconnected, the signal passes into the amp by itself. Connecting the antenna provides enough signal so that both are amplified.
To connect the iPod, you need to purchase a wireless iPod adapter, or a new head unit that includes an "AUX" input or a dedicated adapter for the iPod.
Hope this helps.
