    If you are looking for good car audio equipment and not to expensive look at www.sounddomain.com and www.soundcity.com. I have not bought anything from soundcity but have from sounddomain and I really like them. I got my head unit for around half the retail price. I am having the same problem that you are having also. I just bought a new head unit not more than a year ago.

    You dont' need the $80 adapter unless you are using a CD Changer, too... Without the Changer, there is a $15 adapter (KCA-121B) that will only work if you have the audio mute function available on your head unit. Check out this post for more info:

    this is what you need to add your carputer to your system when you don't have an aux input on your head unit

    Yeah, the line-level switch is a good cheap solution... The only drawback is that now you have to control volume for your head unit, and a seperate volume for the mp3s. Getting an input into the head unit is ideal since you can use it to control everything (plus you can use its EQ if available, etc...). Plus, some people don't have amps in the car and are just using the HU's power to drive the speakers...

    Yeah thats an interesting way to do it... Won't work for me, though, I have a line out and a subwoofer out from my HU... I like to be able to control the sub level from the HU.
