Those cables are for audio out only you need an IP Bus adapter to connect the AUX input. the CDRB20 or CDRB10 is what you need. the CDRB20 allows for more inputs as well such as CD changers, and XM radio tuners.
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.
There are many ways to do so. Each of which is progressively more expensive.
All of these plug into the Ip bus plug in the rear of the unit.
Most of these can be found on Ebay or Amazon
1: An IP bus to RCA plug then you need a RCA to 3.5mm plug wire. (note this is a lower quality) $10-$30
2: An ip bus to Ipod connect plug. (Better sound quality, charges Ipod, does not allow Ipod control from the Head unit, only from the Ipod) around $15-$30
3: An ip bus to Ipod Connectivity unit (same quality as #2 but allows for Ipod control from Head unit)
remember those cd kits that came with a tape to insert to the (stero)pioneer fh-p404 and the output jack to the cd player? well instead of plugging into cd player plug it to your ipod....my pioneer fh-p404 has a tape deck and i'm able to hear all of my music without cds or tapes and i found the tape kit without the cd player for 6 bucks at walmart go figure!
The adapter cable will convert the changer port on your head unit into an AUX input with dual RCA jacks. Once connected, the head unit will detect the cable and allow it to be another source (i.e. radio, cd, aux).
To connect your iPod to the adapter cable, use any iPod cable or dock that outputs to male RCA plugs.
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
The "bus audio input" works as an auxiliary input on some Sony decks, but not all. For the others, you need an auxiliary input adapter like this one:
You can also use a Sony iPod adapter that will charge the iPod and let you control it through the head unit controls:
