I installed a Kenwood DDX574BH in my 2005 Chevrolet Colorado, but wanted an A/V input for playing videos from my smart phone. With this cable connected to the receiver I hope to be able to use the A/V input without the horrible blue screen showing. I also have an input adapter for use, but that was not available on Crutchfield's website. With this receiver it is very easy to geek-out. [ John  Dec 03, 2017 ]

Needed the Kenwood specific AV cable as it is difficult to find a proper aftermarket cable due to the lack of industry standards in the pinouts.

Q
Will this work with an Alpine Halo9? I can't find the Alpine equivalent of this cable.
[ Greg  Jul 28, 2018 ]
1 answer
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.
[ Mike  Aug 01, 2018 ]
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.

Q
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.
[ Philip  Jun 29, 2017 ]
2 answers
A
I thought that too but the contacts on the 3.5mm end have a specific order unique to how the radio is set up.
[ Paul  Jul 03, 2017 ]
A
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.
[ Robert  Jul 03, 2017 ]
Q
will this cord work on my kenwood excelon ddx9903?
[ jesse  May 23, 2017 ]
1 answer
A
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!
