P.I.E. Honda CD Changer Adapter
Connect an Alpine CD changer to select 1992-2001 Acura and Honda vehicles
Our take on the P.I.E. Honda CD Changer Adapter by Crutchfield's Charlie Pastorfield
You bought a 1992-2001 Acura or Honda, and now the dealer is telling you that adding a CD changer will cost you a bundle. Here's a way to add CD changer entertainment to your vehicle, and save some cash! The Precision Interface ACU/HON-ALP adapter allows you to connect the Alpine CHM-S630 6-disc CD changer to certain 1992-2001 Acura/Honda-built radios with CD controls.
If you have a compatible Acura, the adapter plugs into the pre-wired factory changer cable in the trunk and connects to the Alpine CD changer data cable. If you are using the ACU/HON-ALP with a Honda or Acura that does not have a pre-wired changer cable, the adapter plugs into the back of the factory radio and connects to the Alpine CD changer data cable. 90-day warranty.
Keep in mind that these adapters are not universal each adapter works only in specific vehicles, so it's important to check with us before purchasing. To determine compatibility with your vehicle's system, please check the vehicle selector on our site, or call a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000.
Application: The P.I.E. ACU/HON-ALP OEM interface CD changer converter is for compatible Acura and Honda factory radios with CD-changer controls. It allows full-function operation and control of the Alpine CHM-S630 CD changer by the factory radio. Note: Please check Auto Installation Guide to verify compatibility.
