This CA-C2AX adapter converts the changer control plug on the back of most recent (1999 and later) Kenwood changer-controlling receivers into an auxiliary input. The 6.5' cable has the 13-pin male DIN connector at one end and a male 3.5mm miniplug at the other, allowing you to connect a portable MP3 player or iPod®, for example. Warranty: 30 days.

Note: When this adapter is used, you can't connect a CD changer to the Kenwood receiver. You can't connect this adapter to the pass-through changer port on a Kenwood SIRIUS tuner.

Great saviour for your aging deck

Written by: Rhonda from Riverside, CA on November 9, 2007

If you are looking to update your head unit simply because there is no auxillary input then you may want to try this first. It is very easy to install, the cable is long enough to reach your music player easily, and the connection it tight. A very cheap and excellent upgrade purchase for my audio system.




Esay to install and works well!

Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)

Works for any Mp3 player with a 3mm connector. Sounds great and easy to install.

I was thinking about getting a whole new deck just to plug my Zune in, but then I found this. Installs in seconds. I did not even need a single tool.

Product Research


Compatibility: This adapter should only be used with changer control head units that have the adapter listed as an accessory. The adapter is not compatible with pre-1999 head units, and it is not compatible with all newer units. This cannot be used with the pass-through port on Kenwood Sirius tuners. If you have a Kenwood Sirius tuner and want AUX in capability, a Kenwood KCA-S210A (item number 113KCAS210) will be required; the KCA-S210A is a two changer switch with a stereo RCA auxiliary input.

Plugs into Head Unit CD Changer Control Connector: When the CA-C2AX adapter (item 113CAC2AX) is used, you cannot connect a CD changer to the head unit, since the CA-C2AX plugs into the changer control DIN connection on the head unit.

Connections: The adapter has a round 13-pin (6 pins present) male connector on one end and a minijack stereo connector on the other end, allowing you to connect a portable MP3 player or iPod to a compatible Kenwood head unit.
