    Post How can I make Aux with Addzest(Clarion) DRX9375(C-BUS Type)???

    Hello guys..

    Now, I ve installed all the stuff in my car.. also, changed HU and all speakers and add. subwoofer, amp. too

    I have Addzest(Clarion) DRX9375 which is using C-BUS type CD changer and MD.
    how can i make AUX input from that? it is rounded type socket.

    Also, is it possible to connect my computer to Amp. directly? if so, how?

    I will add all the pictures of my beautiful carputer after installing all stuff..

    Thank you very much

    Some Clarions have a switch on the bottom of the stereo to make one set of the RCA pre-outs an input. Take a look at the bottom of your stereo and see if yours can do that. It would be a lot easier that way than trying to go in through the CD Changer input.

    Good Luck!

    It has 3 outs because it doesn't have an amp. in it? does it ? (an passive headunit)

    This HU doesn't have the switch on the bottom.. (at least, the one I looked at didn't have one.. )

    Maybe you could do it by connecting it to the external-EQ connector it has...

    I looked at this unit too, but found it to difficult to get an AUX-IN.

    Helloman, I am afraid that you have to purchase a special Clarion adapter which costs around 120-150 dollars. Thatís what the guy at Audio King told me. I am not quite sure if his statement is true and honest. The problem is that you probably donít have an internal amp. This adapter wonít even work for your system if this is a case.

    As far as I know, Clarion, Pioneer, Kenwood, Alpine, and some other hi-end models are widely employing BUS-type control systems so that you have some flexibility of adding new modules. Only few units have real RCA-type connectors. Thatís why I decided not to purchase Clarion, Pioneer, or Alpine because of these pricey add-on gadgets.

    First of all, thank you for your advice.

    I have found that the adapter can be used to use AUX input if it has CeNet .
    but mine is C-BUS so i cannot use adapter and as far as I know, there is no adapter for C-BUS.

    by reserch, I found that there is no way to make AUX for these Clarion HU with C-BUS

    BUT, i found that if i add multi media switcher box for Clarion C-BUS, then i can have AUX input
    usually multi media swithcer box has 4 RCA input of Audio and Video.
    then I can hook up my mp3 computer.. right?

    but the problem is price.
    new one is about 300 bucks.
    haha.. i can buy new HU with 300 bucks. right?

    if i can find cheaper switcher(less than 100, probably $50), then i will buy one
    otherwise, i have to make switch of input for my Ex. Amp at the trunk.

    This is my conclusion... mmmm sad.. though.

    By the way, if anyone has been done to make AUX for Clarion with C-BUS, or have idea to make AUX,
    let me know

    any advice is welcome!

    Thank you!
