I thought I saw somewhere... maybe last summer about wiring up the back of an old clarion xmd-1 to accept an ipod as an aux input... Can anyone tell me how to do this quickly and easily as I cannot seem to find the thread through the search engine... <BR>Thanks <BR>Duane

rca audio cable to the back on the hu, 4.99 at bestbuy

There are no inputs on a xmd-1. I am using a EQ/ Line Driver to run mine. Works great!

I meant to say XMD-2... but its probably the same as there are no aux input jacks I dont think... how do I do the EQ/line driver...?

I did this on my x7. Search the Planet Nautique site. That is where I found the schematic.

Duane: This looks like what you need <BR> <BR><a href="http://www.planetnautique.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&amp;file=viewtopic&amp;t=1 696" target="_blank">http://www.planetnautique.com/index.php?name=PNphpBB2&amp;file=viewtopic&amp;t=1 696</a> <BR> <BR> <BR>After some research, I couldn't believe that it was impossible to set up an input on the XMD1. I found a schematic and provided the information necessary to make it work. We have been using it since June, and it works like a champ! I will attempt to walk you through the setup as I have done it, and hopefully you can be enjoying lots of tunes... <BR> <BR>First off, you will be interfacing to the CD Changer port. This is a goofy 13 PIN DIN, and these connectors are semi-difficult to track down. You can get one for 4.99 plus shipping from: <BR><a href="http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/parts/dinconn.html" target="_blank">http://www.universal-radio.com/catalog/parts/dinconn.html</a> <BR> <BR>Then you need to get out your soldering iron, hehe, and follow the schematic... I will try to tell you how this works if you aren't familiar with schematics... <BR> <BR>Here is the schematic: <BR> <BR> <BR> <BR>There are lots of ways to go about this, but I picked up a female headphone plug and matched up the tip pin (Right Positive) with Pin 8 on the 13 PIN plug, matched up the inner pin (Left Positive) with Pin 7 on the 13 PIN plug, and then matched up the innner-most pin (Ground) with Pin 6 on the big plug. <BR> <BR>Then you need to wire up a simple switch (Single Pole Single Throw) to connect Pins 9 and 5 together. For the switch and the female headphone plug, just hit up your local radio shack and they should help you find what you need. <BR> <BR>When you throw the switch on, it forces the head-unit into Accessory mode, and it should display ACCS. <BR> <BR>You should now have auxiliary audio input through the new connector. YAY! I don't have to buy a new deck after all!!! <BR> <BR>Enjoy!<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/messages/65921/337840.gif" alt="Upload">
