    Aux-in before line converter?

    Hi guys!

    I want to use my ipod with the CD30, but no aux in. I have a line converter from the headunit to the amp, is it possible to just solder the aux cable before the converter? Basically using the ipod as a "headunit"

    Thanks

    The head unit is outputting speaker level signal. The line converter is converting that back to line level. The ipod puts out line level. You can probably just get a 3.5mm to rca adapter to do this: https://www.mycablemart.com/store/im...1085_large.jpg

    Is the amp powering speakers or is it just powering a subwoofer?

    Thanks!
    The amp powers the whole system.
    I just assumed that the output from the ipod would be a "high" output, hence putting it before the converter..

    When you find yourself asking that just question whether that output could directly drive a speaker. If it could we wouldn't be buying amplifiers ;-)
