The multichanger has to be connected,with a cd in, but then the head unit will play whatever is fed to the bus in sockets. This effectively means the multichanger is playing to itself. If you want both to work, use a pair of piggy back rca leads into the head unit, one to the cd, one to the mp3. Then break into the cd leads and feed one of the pairs, one +ve, one -ve to a double pole switch so that you cut the sound from the cd allowing the mp3 in. To play cd's, flick the switch.

It will only accept audio from the bus in conections when a multi changer is connected and selected.

This is how I connect my mp3 player to my sony.

Swap multichanger audio outputs at the rear of the stereo for my mp3 player, press source to select multichanger.

Remember as I said, if there is not a control cable connected to your multichanger it wont wotk!

I've had my Sony Xplod CDX S2010 Radio/CD player in my Jeep for years and it has all of a sudden locked up on me. The CD player will play and eject CDs, however it doesn't allow me to adjust volume or skip...


i'm not sure if there is a flexible cable that goes from the face to the motherboard. if there is, that could be the problem. it could also be a bad switch.

Make sure that you have the antenna plugged in and if you have a power antenna make sure that you hook up the solid blue antenna wire behind on the radio harness to the power antenna wire from the car plug.

NO SUB OUTPUT


The sub outputs are simply lowpass filtered preamp outputs for use with a subwoofer amplifier. They supply a lowpass filtered signal for a subamp or 'powered subwoofer" like a bazooka tube. Test your "basstube" for 12 volt input power and make sure the "sub" setting on the radio is turned up too.

Linking an i pod to a Sony CDX-MP40 using the bus input terminal


Some Sony head units let you use the Bus audio inputs as an auxiliary source input, but yours is not among them. To play your iPod through the head unit, you'll either need an iPod interface module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-110IP or an auxiliary input module: http://www.xplodsony.com/xplod/accessories/XA-300 The iPod interface will allow you to control and display the iPod directly through the head unit, while an auxiliary input adapter will allow the iPod to play through the head unit using the iPod's controls and display.
