Overview: The PAC AAi-CHY Audio Input Interface allows direct
input of any preamp level audio source to select Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep factory
radios. The AAi-CHY interface features to stereo RCA inputs so you can input sources
such as DVD, VCP, MP3 satellite or video games. The factory radio allows you to
switch between inputs.
Note: This interface only supports
audio playback of your external portable device. The
interface does not allow for any control of the auxiliary
sources you have connected.
Compatibility: The AAi-CHY Auxiliary Audio Input Interface
supports select 2005 and up Chrysler, Dodge and Jeep factory radios. The AAi-CHY
is compatible with the following factory radio models - REC, REF, RAQ and RAK.
The Audio Input Interface works with or without factory installed satellite radio
by emulating factory VES (Video Entertainment System). If your vehicle has both
factory satellite radio and VES (Video Entertainment System) one of them must
be disconnected at the device. This interface will emulate the device that is
disconnected. If your factory radio has a single disc CD and satellite radio
(REF model), the factory satellite receiver must be disconnected.
Installation: The factory radio must be removed and the AAi-CHY
interface plugs into the back of the factory radio. The AAi-CHY plugs into either
the satellite radio or VES input, depending on which one is not in use or which
one you want to disconnect. The interface features two pairs of stereo RCA inputs
for connecting your external portable audio sources.
Level Control: The AAi-CHY is equipped with gain controls
on top of the interface to allow you to adjust the audio level of your sources
connected to the factory radio to match the output level of your vehicle's
