OEM CD Changer Adapter
Alpine 6-disc CD Changer
Our take on the Peripheral VOLIL by Crutchfield's Charlie Pastorfield
You bought a Volvo 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 Peripheral VOLIL adapter allows you to connect the Alpine CHM-S630 6-disc changer to certain 1996-2000 Volvo-built radios with CD controls.
The VOLIL adapter plugs into the back of the factory radio and connects to the Alpine CD changer cable. You must connect the yellow wire to a constant 12-volt power source.
Keep in mind that these adapters are not universal each adapter works only in specific vehicles. Please check with us before purchasing by using the vehicle selector on our site, or calling a Sales Advisor at 1-888-955-6000.
Compatibility: This interface will adapt Alpine M-Bus changers to select 1996-2000 Volvo factory radios with CD controls.
Connections: All the connections are located on one side of the interface. The 12.5" cable has an 8-pin male connector that interfaces with the factory radio. The 13.5" cable has an 8-pin female connector that interfaces with the Alpine CD changer. There is also an 8.5" yellow wire that must be connected to a constant 12-volt power source.
