Overview: The Audiovox XMDirect2 Jensen Connection Cable (CNPJEN1) allows you to connect the Audiovox XMDirect2 Universal XM Satellite Radio tuner (220CNP2UCA, sold separately) to select, compatible, satellite-ready Jensen car stereo receivers.

Compatibility: As the firmware is released to complete the compatibility between the XMDirect2 tuner and a specific head unit, this adapter and the tuner are added to the accessory list for the head unit; please check there to confirm compatibility.

Connection/Wiring Overview: The CNPJEN1 XMDirect2 Jensen Connection Cable features the following connections.

  • 34-Pin Connector: The 34-pin connector plugs into the CNP2000UCA XMDirect2 XM Satellite Radio Universal Tuner (sold separately).
  • 8-Pin DIN Connector: The 8-pin DIN connector connects to the 8-pin DIN connector marked SAT Radio on the Jensen head unit. Since both DIN connectors are male, you will need the supplied 8-pin female-to-female coupler to connect the cables together.
  • Stereo Audio: The red and white RCA plugs on the XMDirect² Jensen Connection Cable plug into the female right and left RCA jacks marked SAT R and SAT L on the head unit.
