SOURCE: 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).

SOURCE: installing the Alpine IDA-X200

So it is powering up? On your actual deck will be a picture of the schematics of the wiring. With the system powered up, assuming you taped up the power wires, strip the front left wires coming from the deck and use them as your tester. You now know forsure they are for the front left so as you go through your cars audio wires you will find which wires are for which speakers around your car. Label them as you test them. Hope that helps.

You could get a stereo installation kit for your year, make & model, that comes with a pigtail plug that would plug right into the existing harness plug and prevent you from having to hack up your original wiring harness.

If not....

Car Radio memory Constant 12v+ Wire: Orange
Car Radio Accessory Switched 12v+ Wire: The radio harness does not provide a switched power source. Run a wire to the fusebox for switched power.
Car Radio Ground Wire: Black/White
Car Radio Illumination Wire: Gray
Car Stereo Dimmer Wire: Brown
Car Stereo Antenna Trigger Wire: Pink
Car Stereo Amp Trigger Wire: N/A
Left Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Tan
Left Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Gray
Right Front Speaker Positive Wire (+): Light Green
Right Front Speaker Negative Wire (-): Dark Green
Left Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Brown
Left Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Yellow
Right Rear Speaker Positive Wire (+): Dark Blue
Right Rear Speaker Negative Wire (-): Light Blue

Good luck

SOURCE: Need to know what wires are for what to change out

Hello,
The best thing you can do for your situation is to get a vehicle wiring diagram for your particular vehicle. This can be done at the dealer or by buying a vehicle manual at the autoparts store that has the wiring diagrams in it. You can then see the wiring color coding. They also make a factory plug pigtail that you can plug into your existing radio harness and then wire it correctly to the new radio. The new radio should have the wiring layout included with its documentation, and some radios also have small marking tabs on the wire ends to tell you what they are for. Good Luck, RAC

How do you connect the ipod to the ida-x300


The IDA-X300 has a USB jack on the back of the unit.
You can plug an iPod USB cable (just like you use to connect the iPod to the computer) into this jack, or you can attach a USB thumb drive loaded with music files.

It is not compatible with generic MP3 players other than the iPod, but you can buy an adaptor (KCA-121B Ai-NET/RCA) which will let you connect axillary inputs like MP3 player, DVD players, etc.

Does this answer your question? Feel free to use the "add comment" link if I can explain anything else.

My alpine ida x200 keeps skipping during songs


All you can really do is use a CD Player cleaner *one that uses fluid* run it thru a couple times and try a disc again. Clean your CD's with liquid car polish an a microfibre towel, it works wonders for new and old CD's. If it still skips, It needs to be pulled for repair. They just replace the transport, usually runs between 100-150 depending on the service center. Hope this helps.

Ipod touch connector


Hello serafineb,

The Alpine Full Speed cable for the iPod supports the following versions:

Fourth generation iPod
Fifth generation iPod
iPod photo
iPod mini
iPod nano

According to their website it does not appear that Alpine currently has a cable for the iPod touch. They do, however, make a "generic" cable for most MP3 players that connects directly to the earphone jack. Although this would not allow you to control the iPod from your stereo's head unit, you should be able to connect the iPod touch via this cable to play music through your car stereo.

More information about the "generic" cable can be found here.

Best Regards,
Ken
