USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface
Connect a music player to your 2000-up Chrysler factory radio
Our take on the USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface by Crutchfield's Tim Sprinkle
Enjoy maximum possible sound quality when you play your portable music through your Chrysler's factory radio. USA SPEC's innovative DF-CHR adapter lets you connect your portable music player directly to your compatible 2000-up Chrysler factory radio. Just plug the adapter cable into your radio's CD changer input, mount the interface box, and you're ready to listen to your tunes.
And the news gets better if you also have another sound source you want to hook up to your Chrysler's sound system, the DF-CHR provides a second set of connections for an iPod, satellite radio tuner, or DVD player. You can switch between sources with your factory radio controls. Warranty: 1 year.

Easy to install and worked as advertised. The only thing missing is an input gain control. Good sound quality.

USA SPEC Auxiliary Interface Reviews
Average Customer Review(s):
Thanks for submitting your review
Compatibility: The DF-CHR allows you to add two auxiliary inputs to the factory radio in select Chrysler vehicles. The adapter plugs into the factory system using the supplied cable, avoiding wire splicing and modifications. Since the adapter is controlled by the factory radio, the available controls should be described in the factory manual.
Note: The adapter is not compatible with vehicles that have factory navigation and DVD systems. The adapter takes the place of the CD changer, so you cannot have a CD changer and the adapter connected to your vehicle at the same time.
Mounting: The adapter can be secured to any flat surface using the supplied mounting screws.
Connections: The adapter has two auxiliary inputs (Audio Input 1 and 2) on the left side panel. Each input consists of left and right RCA audio jacks. On the right side panel, the adapter has a round 8-pin jack that interfaces with the supplied CDL-CXi cable. The adapter end of the cable has a round 8-pin connector that plugs into the adapter. The opposite end of the cable has a rectangular 10-pin connector and a round 8-pin connector. If your factory radio has a Mode button, then you should use the rectangular 10-pin connector. If your factory radio has a CDC button, then you should use the round 8-pin connector. The appropriate connector plugs into the factory changer cable.
