Different than Camcorder AV cable

Crutchfield customer from Brisbane, CA on 5/7/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Does the job! At first I thought I could use and old Camcorder AV Cable that looks just like this but I was wrong! The pins are totally different. This one did the trick and know I can see my Input Source on my Pioneer Head Unit!

A necessary option which should be standard with the head unit.

Crutchfield customer from San Carlos, CA on 4/21/2019

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Haven't installed it, but seems that somehow an off-the-shelf cable assembly doesn't work. I even checked continuity with the cable I already had and it matches. I don't have an impedance analyzer, but can't believe that a simple cable has to be custom.

Aux A/V input adapter for Kenwood

Barry from Overland Park, KS on 11/5/2018

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

This is the only adapter for A/V input into the newer Kenwood navigation units. Kenwood uses a 4-position plug with a proprietary order for the different signals. Crutchfield had it in stock and had the lowest price.

Pros: In Stock Lowest price @ Crutchfield

Cons: Proprietary adapter for Kenwood. Should be included with head unit.

Kenwood CA-C3AV A/V Cable

Anthony from Houston, TX on 6/7/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I didn't think that it would work when I purchased these product from connecting it to the input of the receiver. I hope it up with HDMI to rca output to connect to these. I then connect a Wi-Fi dongle to connect to the HDMI and then mirror it to my axon 7. It did work and mirrored my phone to the receiver. But for some reason, when I play a YouTube videos or a movie,it started to play but it kinda start and stop. Maybe the Wi-Fi dongle that I use doesn't work properly. I have not yet tried it to a wired mhl to HDMI from a phone to the HDMI connection because my axon 7 doesn't support mhl video out from a type c plug. I yet try to figure out what else can I use to mirror it wirelessly and not getting a garbled signal coming out from the screen. Overall I believe these product works well and doesn't have a problem with connecting it to a receiver.

Pros: Quality of the cable. Good packaging

Cons: No comment

Heavy duty, high quality AV Cable

Jackie from Georgia (GA) on 1/18/2017

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

Very high quality, heavy duty, cable which I used to connect my dash camera AV output to the AV input of my new Kenwood DNX573S. Originally tried a double ended 3.5 MM Mini-jack AV cable only to find that there is no standard for these cables so it would not work. This cable has the ground on Ring 2 as does my dash camera. I used a matching cable I had laying around from an XBox, ROKU or something which also had a Ring 2 ground which produced good video output to my AV connection on the head unit. Very expensive cable for what it is but better than ordering multiple cheaper ones until I found the right pin outs.

Pros: Well made, clear signal

Cons: Expensive

Works for my TV tuner to DNX892

Derek S. from Green Bay, WI on 8/3/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

I used this to connect a Pyle TV tuner to my Kenwood DNX892. A standard RCA to mini jack didn't work. I used to have a Kenwood DNX9960 and that unit had a RCA input built right into it. My DNX892 has a mini jack instead of the standard RCA (red, white, and yellow) input. I figured out that I needed this special Kenwood cable to make it work and now it's all good.

Pros: Good build quality. Good cable length if you need it.

Cons: A bit annoying that Kenwood now requires a proprietary cable when I could just hook it straight up in my older DNX9960 (2010 model).

Kenwood CA-C3AV A/V Cable

Ryan from greenville, SC on 3/16/2016

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

It was defiantly a bit frustrating when my aftermarket cable did not work with my Kenwood receiver, as this is a proprietary cable. However, I was pleased as the picture and sound was consistent with the quality I expect from Kenwood.

Pros: Great picture and sound quality.

Cons: Proprietary cable was not mentioned to me when I purchased my head unit, so Crutchfield sent me a replacement because my aftermarket cable was not compatible and we thought it was a defective input. Of course the problem was solved quickly and efficiently by their resolution team.

Simple, proprietary cable

Todd from Indiana on 6/9/2015

Verified customer (What's this?)
Verified employee purchase (What's this?)

The cable is perfect for my application: AV-IN for my JVC V50BT. Also works for other specific JVC and Kenwood models. The cable isn't too long to be unwieldy, and the build is solid. The right-angle plug turned out to be a must in the tight space of my dash. If you need a quality 4-pole AV cable with this (somewhat proprietary) configuration - 1)L 2)R 3)G 4)V - this one is a good choice.

Pros: Good quality cable that isn't overly long for most applications. Right-angle plug fits well in tight spaces.

Cons: None for the cable itself.

Q
I need this for audio on reverse camera. It is not stereo, has only one input. Does it matter which audio plug I use?
[ Stephen  Aug 01, 2019 ]
1 answer
A
Reverse camera audio got my attention. This is used as an audio video input, but it will only operate as a single "channel" if you will. Meaning that unless you use the video input for your reverse camera as well, you won't be able to utilize both signals at once. But to answer your question, no. It doesn't matter if you use left or right audio input.

[ Greg  Jul 28, 2018 ]

A
As far as I know it will only work with kenwood products. Kenwood changed the order of the wires from the industry standard order. Just find a regular 1/8 mini jack a/v cable and you should be good.

Q
Will the Kenwood CA-C3AV work with an hdmi to av adapter on on my ddx320bt and ddx374bt?
[ Harold  Nov 29, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
You can use the CA-C3AV cable to connect a composite video and stereo audio source to the input of the DDX374BT, sure. If you have an HDMI adapter that provides the composite video and stereo audio output, yes, you can connect it to the CA-C3AV as the external source. I hope that helps.

Will the ca-c3av a/v cable by kenwood work on my blaupunkt San Jose 120 to mirror my GPS from my Moto Z play2 phone?
[ Bobby  Nov 15, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
No. This cable is made for connecting an external source such as a game console, DVD player, camcorder, or digital camera (with a RCA composite video & stereo audio output) to a Kenwood multimedia receiver that features a front- or rear-panel 3.5mm A/V input.
[ Ryan  Nov 18, 2017 ]  Staff
Q
Why won't a generic RCA (red/white/yellow) to 3.5mm (3 "stripe") cable work instead of this expensive cable? I ask because this ends in female connectors, meaning it's meant to be used with non-proprietary RCA (r/w/y) cables connected to it, so I don't see how a generic cable wouldn't work.

I thought that too but the contacts on the 3.5mm end have a specific order unique to how the radio is set up.

The end on the RCA plug is reverse wired (r/w/y) do not line up with their standard locations. Kenwood uses a proprietary configuration on their receivers.

Yep! The Kenwood Excelon DDX9903S DVD receiver is fitted with a rear-panel minijack (3.5mm) audio/video input that you can use to connect the CA-C3AV cable. If you would like to discuss further, feel free to contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. Hope that helps!
