Overview: The Audiovox XMDirect2 Alpine Connection Cable (CNPALP1) allows you to connect the Audiovox XMDirect2 Universal XM Satellite Radio tuner (220CNP2UCA, sold separately) to select, compatible, satellite-ready Alpine 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 CNPALP1 XMDirect² Alpine 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).
  • Male Ai-NET Connector: The Alpine Ai-NET connector provides a connection between your compatible Alpine head unit and the CNP2000UCA XMDirect² XM Satellite Radio Universal Tuner (sold separately).
  • Female Ai-NET: The Alpine Ai-NET female connector provides a pass-through for connecting other Alpine Ai-NET components, such as a CD changer, iPod adapter, or HD Radio tuner.
  • Yellow Wire: The 6' yellow wire of the CNPALP1 cable will need to be hardwired to your Alpine head unit's yellow wire using the supplied in-line 1-Amp fuse wire extension.
