Q
Does this work as a USB Passthrough for USB audio? Not Carplay or Android Auto, just a USB stick.
bryce  Jun 27, 2023

This Alpine KCU-315 USB/HDMI can support USB media through a thumbdrive, Bryce. This would be an excellent call for radios like the Alpine iLX-650 in the link below that uses a single USB for both Carplay/Android Auto and USB playback. This would not work well for radios that use dual USB (one for Carplay/Android Auto and another second for USB playback and charging) as it only has one single USB connection. I hope this helps! https://www.crutchfield.com/p_500ILXW650/Alpine-iLX-W650.html

Hi Stephen, thank you for your question. These are the dimensions for installation of the Alpine KCU-315UH. Cutout Dimensions: 1.0625" (w) x 1.0" (h) x 1.8125" (d) Outer Dimensions: 1.625" (w) x 1.6875" (h) x 0.3125" (d). Hope this helps!

I had to use a burr on a right angle grinder as a drill would not fit in my chosen location. The specs state Cutout Dimensions: 1.0625" (w) x 1.0" (h) x 1.8125" (d) Outer Dimensions: 1.625" (w) x 1.6875" (h) x 0.3125" (d) I did not measure when I was done to doublecheck, but I would say the description is accurate. The housing has locking tabs on the backside to clip it into the panel. I did not get my whole A Perfect Circle, but because of the tabs it still went in very snug and is not coming out unintentionally.
william  Nov 27, 2019

I'm not sure what size the hole is. I removed my cigarette light and replaced it with this product. I did use a dremel to notch the opening. There is a tab on the plastic insert that keeps it in place and notching the opening accommodated the product fitment.

If you are talking about actual lighting, then no. It's pretty simple and what you see , is what you get.

Q
how does the port stay on the dash when you install it?
jose  Mar 15, 2018
1 answer
A
The plug end has 2 small clips that will hold it in if the correct size hole is drilled. I used a 1 inch bit and slowly widened it until the end clipped in tightly. Hope this helps
