  • Adding an Auxiliary Port

    I've been looking around trying to find a way to install aux ports for a carputer on my stock head unit and I was wondering if anyone had any luck with a particular brand of FM Modulator, or if anyone could suggest an alternative that would supply reasonable sound quality. I thought of a tape deck adapter but I really dont want to have a wire running across my dash to my computer.
    I dont really need very good sound quality as the stock speakers aren't to great anyways. I have yet to find a modulator with any really great reviews but if some of you guys could post your good/bad experiences with modulators or any other means of adding an Aux port that would be great.

    oops, misunderstood you.

    Yeah get a CD changer Auxiliary cable if your head unit supports it.

      I'd suggest looking to see if one of these before an FM modulater:

      The sound will be much cleaner. Usually you can get one of these to work if your head unit has CD changer controls.

        Well my head unit has a cd player so would it still support a CD changer Auxiliary cable or do I need to remove the head unit to check on that?
