    Post ATTN Aiwa users.

    For all of you out there using an Aiwa head unit for your aux input I have a bit of information you might find handy. I had an Aiwa for a long while but then a slight incident when changing my spare tire crossed a couple wires and melted a few others and I ended up sending twelve volts back up to the head unit thru the RCA preout wires. But anyways the real point of this post. After I fried mine I took it apart and found that it would be incredibly easy to just solder a couple wires onto the aux in jack and then run them out the back of the head unit. Thus getting rid of the ugly wire hanging out of your radio. If anyone would like more info just reply here and I'll see if I can take some pictures. I obviously didn't do the mod to mine since its broken now. It got replaced by an INCREDIBLE Blaupunkt Tokyo. I highly recomend it tons of features and amazing sound quality.

    The AUX in jack is not connected to the faceplate. You would solder the wires to the connecters of the AUX jack.

    I'm curious about how you managed to burn out a head unit while changing a tire

    Well actually its fairly easy to do....I had all of my audio equipment(subs and amps) mounted above my spare tire well. So to get to the spare tire i have to slide the amps over and slide the sub box back. well in this whole proscess a wire popped out of somewhere and shorted to somewhere and within a seconf my trunk was full of smoke and an RCA wire got melted by another wire. When that happened the RCA wire then shorted somewhere and I believe I sent 12 volts back up to the head unit trhu the RCA wire....I've since reinstalled and hopefully took some measures to prevent this.

    P.S. The head unit I had did not have a removable face. So im not sure how that would work out.

    Well, some pics would be cool in any case. I am always interested in pics of such things.
