  • Ipod in Classic Car with no headunit. RCA out and charging power required

    I am new to the forum and hope someone can help me with my current project.
    I am creating a hidden MP3 stereo system in a British 60s classic car which for appearance does not include a working head unit. I have purchased 12v stereo amp with volume control and RCA input facility. This will be installed inside an old 60s Motorola MW/LW radio using its front panel volume and on/off control only. I have RCA power in to the stereo amp and will have switched 12V power out.
    My question is I need to link in an IPod to the amp and power (charge it) it in the simplest and most economical way. The I Pod will need to be charged and if possible switched off and on with the 12V switched feed and I will need Audio out at line level out of the single I Pod docking connector. I can re-terminate any wires from the Ipod connector.
    I have looked at using a Dension cable but they could not help me so my approach now is to use a Alpine KCE-422i cable (much cheaper) to connect to the IPod how do I then get Audio out and power in to the D shaped plug?, does anyone have a pin out for these connectors so I can take off the D shaped plud and reterminate or know of an interface cable to the D shaped plug with the ends I require.

    You might want to try something like this:

    It's as basic as you can get and it does just what you say. RCA out from the iPod dock connector and 12v leads.

    Hope this helps you

      Nice one

      Cheers this is exactly what I am looking for, I was about to give up and have to settle for 2 connections to the Ipod a car charger and a headphone to RCA cable. Have you had any experience with this company?
