Question about Car Speakers & Subwoofers

1 Answer

I have a cassette player as part of the stereo system in my 05 Toyota Highlander and use a cassette adapter for my XM radio. I started hearing a clicking noise when the adapter is in, so I tried my iPod (also has a cassette adapter). I hear the same clicking noise so am guessing the cassette player is causing it. Is there anything I can do to fix it?

The only thing I can suggest is either to take the head unit to an engineer or replace it.
good luck

I just purchased a vehicle with a Pioneer car stereo in it and I can't figure out how to get my i pod to play. The stereo is a super tuner and it says mosfet 50 w x 4 on the front. I can't find...


First, is the radio even ipod capable. If it is, there should be an additional cable that plugs directly to the ipod or iphone. Usually when you attempt to use Sirius/XM, a phone number pops up on your radio for you to call. You will probably need the part number, which will be on the back of the radio. If you are not into all that trouble, you can purchase a new one that has all the functions you want and you will have all instructions and information available. Hope this helps.

I have satelite radio system in my car it came with a remote.the name of the radio is a dualcd-rw x07500 cafrinae. you help me get the radio stations on there?


First, you attach the receiver to your car's dashboard using the included plastic stick-on holder. Next, you plug the power cord into your car's cigarette lighter to give the receiver its juice, and then you slip the attached cassette adapter into the audio cassette player of your car's stereo (this passes the satellite receiver's audio signal through to your car's speakers). Finally, you'll use a thin wire to attach a small antenna, about the size of a walnut, to your front or rear window--or for clearest reception, outside the car on its hood (though attaching it to the hood will require a professional installation for best results). Then just turn on your car's stereo, but use the attached receiver to cruise through satellite stations.

The benefit of this plug-and-play approach is that you can set up satellite radio in almost any car with little time and effort. The downside is that this approach adds a lot of ugly cable clutter to your car's interior. Also, even though the receiver is small, you have to take care to attach it to your dashboard without blocking an air vent so your car's air conditioning and heating is not affected. Finally, if your car has those nifty stereo controls built right into the steering wheel, you'll find that only the volume controls work with satellite radio--you won't be able to change stations with your thumbs.

If you want to keep your car's interior looking as spiffy as possible, you can buy a different kind of satellite receiver commonly known as a "head unit." These units, such as the XM Commander, replace your car's existing receiver, so they don't need a cigarette lighter's power or a cassette-tape adapter. They're a much more elegant option, but unless you're handy under the hood, you can count on spending at least $100 extra for installation fees. (If you're in the market for a new car, note that many 2004 and 2005 models include built-in satellite radio options.)

Hope that helps........

Have a 1996 Toyota Camery. Installed a KDG140 JVC stereo/CD player but the stereo won't work. CD player works great.


If "stereo won't work" refers to you not being able to get radio stations; try your antenna connection behind the radio. The vehicle may also have a power antenna connection(blue wire at the stereo).

JBL Prius Radio Tuning Knob Broke


Search for your model number on eBay. You should be able to find used radios taken from a totaled Prius much cheaper than buying a replacement from Toyota.

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.

Car stereo installation speakers


Your old unit was a common ground unit meaning all speaker grounds as well a radio ground were the same. The new unit should NOT be connected to this wire configuration. Newer units change the potential difference of the speaker power meaning that the - wire of the unit may have negative 24v on it so IT CANNOT BE REFERENCED TO EARTH OR CHASSIS GROUND.

I would recommend rewiring the speakers to the radio for best reliability and sound quality.
