  • 2000 Mitsu Eclipse GT Aux-In

    Anybody using an aux-in for a 2000 Mitsubishi Eclipse GT? I have the in-dash CD changer that looks like it is part of the headunit.

    Haven't taken the headunit out yet, but am afraid the the CD changer is wired internally to the headunit.

    So, anybody have a setup like mine and an aux-in (where did you get it)?

    btw, already and

    i have a 2k gt and i changed the entire system for that reason. the stock does not have an aux in ... You might wanna look in the eclipse forums though, i havent visited for 2 years now!
    The cd interconnects with a small cable to the main unit .

      There is an adapter you can buy that will do this for you. if you look up the ipod mod to connect an ipod to the cd changer port then you can modify this for your project. the cable is like 30 buck if I remember correctly. I just read the post the other day. also try club3g.com

        Thanks, I'll check it out! Really didn't want to replace stock headunit or get an amp, so hoping the iPod cable idea works. I'll post if I find the actual link!

              Checked 3gclub.com and neweclipse.org, and concensus seems that it is impossible to hardwire to stock headunit.

              If someone actually has a link to something that works for hardwiring, I would love to see (for a 2000 Eclipse GT)

              Two options they listed were:
              - FM Modulator (really, really worried about sound quality, especially since antenna is in rear window)
              - Our cars actually have cassette decks as part of the headunit (along with in-dash CD changer), God knows why, but one guy just suggested using a tape adapter, hiding the cable --> much better sound then FM Modulator.

              I will go this route unless someone has any objections to this headunit and this carputer joining in holy matrimony!

                tape seems to be the best idea then.. if you are good with electronics maybe you could direct connect the output of the sound card to the amplifier (its located under the passangers seat...
                I think i still havea diagram of the eclipse audio cabling i will check at home and attach it if i do.
                Where did you and the other guys put the pc? First i had it mounted over my feet under the area where the steering wheel is. It works perfect but i had to take it out cause its very difficult to reach and do upgrades. I got a case and i am still deciding where to put it.. probably in the back?

                  I know nothing about this particular deck but in the past I actually sodered the output from the sound card to the audio output on the tape deck...maybe that is too confusing?

                    FWIW I have the 2002 Eclipse GT w/the Infinity sound system (sun and sound pkg), and I have the pinout for the 6-pin din (and a bunch of other details) between the headunit and the amplifier here: http://www.apeirokalia.com/mp3car.html (the article is kinda old as I've got a lot more stuff in it now). I don't have the CD changer so it prolly won't help, but in case anyone else stumbles across this thread in a search..

                      So, do you have it? Also, didn't know my amp was under the passenger seat. Is this true on the 2000 GT also?

                      Planning on under dash on passenger side, all the way in the back. Have the PC in a really small custom built case (will psot picks when I have it done). Will mount HD seperately.
                      What would be really cool would be in glove compartment, but not sure if it will fit. Just hopeful thinking. (btw, its a mini-ITX)

                        I have my (too large) custom case behind the passenger-side back seat, in the trunk. Wires are routed under the back seat, thru wire loom to under the driver's seat.

                          I currently have the computer in a travla c134 din case residing in the bottom din with a digitalww pullout touchscreen in the upper din. This summer I'm changing my setup, storing the computer in the center console (arm rest area) and installing the pxa-h700 control face in the bottom din.

                            I mounted my pc in the trunk. i have a travla C134 black with the opus 90W inside. They all fit in there. This is good, i can take it out of the car anytime i need and it looks cleaner too.. maybe i will take some pics.. Also i didnt want to do too much cause i am planning to get another car soon. So i wanna be able to return it to stock as easy as possible. hope the files help
