Inputs and Outputs
General Overview: The KCA-801B Aux-In
adapter accepts input from an Alpine Ai series CD changer and an additional auxiliary
audio source (DVD player, video game, portable CD, MD, tape or
MP3 player). The adapter must be used with an Ai-NET capable head unit, and it will not operate without an Alpine Ai changer connected. 12 Volts must be applied to the trigger wire to pass audio from the external source to your head unit; an optional toggle switch (sold separately) should be connected to turn the trigger voltage on/off.
AUX Input Connections: The
input for the auxiliary source is a set of female RCA jacks mounted directly to
the Aux-In Selector module. A stereo RCA patch cord should be connected to the
AUX IN jacks on the module and run to where the auxiliary source will be
located. If the aux source has a mini-jack output, a stereo mini-jack to dual
male RCA cable will be needed instead of a standard RCA patch
