    Making own 1/8 stereo jack to pioneer headunit

    ok, well i honestly thought it would be easy finding a diagram of how to solder this connection but ive had no luck. im trying to make a cable that goes from the back of a pioneer head unit (ip-bus) to my zune/blackberry (both are 1/8 jack) im pretty confident about the ip-bus but im not sure what goes where on the 1/8 jack. it has 3 solder conductors, radioshack part # 274-284. the pic is lousy, sorry. im using 22-gauge solid hookup wire, if you needed that info. and for what its worth, yea im a nub with this stuff. thanks in advance for any help.

    What connection are you going into on the pioneer HU (I know it's the 1/8" socket, but what is that connection supposed to be for)?


    Anyway, for 1/8th connectors you should not be using 22gauge solid hook up wire, you should be using twin shielded cable.

    OK, well the ip-bus is the square socket (blue), so you need to get the pinout of that.


    here is a site with some information for you.

    Well first you need to get the correct cable(s), you cannot use the cable you have.

    What I would suggest is get one of the following

    1. old pair of headphones with a 1/8th connector
    2. a twin phono to 1/8th plug lead
    3. a 1/8th stereo to 1/8th stereo lead

    the cut of the end opposite to the 1/8th connector (for 3 cut either plug off)

    you should then have bare ends with either two wires and a shield or two wires with individual shields.

    In the case of individual shields, you will connect the shield to the - pins and the wire it is shielding to the + pin.

    if you have just one shield, split it and have one go to the - pin for R and the other go to the - pin for L. then the 'shielded' or center wires go to the positive pins


    However if you still want to wire the plug yourself you will need to get twin audio shielded cable.

    at the pioneer end the shields got to the - pins, the centre wires go to the + pins.

    at the 1/8th end, the shields should be joined and go to the longest part of the plug and the centre wires go to the other two connectors, it doesn't matter which is which. Just make sure the wires do not touch any of the other ones.

    so as far as the 1/8 is concerned it doesnt matter whether its +/- just as long as their not touching each other? thanks for the tip off about the cable ill get the right ones from radioshack after work
