I have a pioneer 6800 deh headunit in my Ranger and I'm trying to hook my ipod up to play through it while I'm on the road. It has two sets of rca inputs in the back, and one 2.5mm jack on the front of the faceplate. I really can't seem to find a 2.5mm to 3.5mm cable that is a decent quality, and I don't want wires sticking from the front in anycase. (why did they put a 2.5mm input anyways!?)
Someone told me If I had inputs in my stereo, then I could get a y-split cable to hook my ipod up. Went to walmart, and got the scosche brand cable, installed it through my rear input, and barely any sound came out, volume didn't work on stereo or ipod. Put it in the second input, and all the sound came blaring out of only one speaker of four...
Now, before I break anything else...
I see they have these Auxilary input converter "boxes", do i need one of these to play an ipod through the rca inputs?? Though, that doesn't make sense to me because you can hook an ipod up to a tv,dvd player, home stereo...etc with just this: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Belkin-Pur...Cable/15413265
Someone please school me in rca inputs.
