  • Extremely low volume with auxiliary input

    I have a 2002 jetta and am using the USA SPEC aux in adapter in my trunk (I want the adapter to be in the trunk because that is where I have my laptop). I am getting extremely low levels from the aux input. when i use an Ipod I have to turn the volume all the way up to be able to hear the music without having to turn the HU volume up so high that I get a hiss

    When I plug my laptop in I have to max the HU volume to hear the music at all. I have purchased and wired in a line driver (LD-1) from the laptop to the aux in, I can not quite max the LD before it starts to attenuate, and I still only get volume levels about comparable to the Ipod. I have a new aux in coming on the off chance that the problem is with this one, but I don't know that it is and the thing is backordered with no estimated shipping date anyway. Does anyone know of an aux in that has two channels, a preamp, and would go into the cd in that is in the trunk of my car?

    Thanks all!

    I dont there's any AUX IN device that would have a built in line amp, they are mostly all seperate devices.

      Don't know if you have the option but on my Sony HU thee is an AUX input gain adjustment. It's worth a look.
