    No head unit. Ipod to Amp. Possible?

    Need some advice please!

    Trying to hook up my Iphone/Touch to my amp in my car without a head unit.

    I have bought a AV Cable ( and I have a Audiobahn amp.

    Is this going to work? Please give me any advice you have.

    Thanks for your time!

    it will halfway work.

    will it send a audio signal to the amps?

    will it be loud, and will you be able to control the volume?

    that cable sends a very low voltage signal to the amps, and bypasses the ipods internal volume control-- so you would need to use the amps gain control to change the volume level..

    i recommend this, or a similar cable(you just need a 3.5mm-to-rca cable, brand doesn't matter):

    this will send a slightly louder signal to your amps, and will also allow you to control the volume level from the ipod as well...

    Thats awesome thanks so much for the link, much cheaper than I had gone for originally too.

    I went for the 10ft cable instead as it will reach all the way to the front of the car(plus a couple of feet)

    Thanks for the help again.
