Wes I know the Stock Clarion Head unit does not have a AUX or Any aux RCAs. It has front and rear output RCA's only, The back of the unit has "Wait a Min" The back of the unit has a Imput for the 6 disk changer and on the deck if you push the function button 2 times you will get the imput from the 6 disk changer. It's a long shot my friend, I would call clarion and ask if there is a adaptor that changes the 6 disk imput into a RCA or headphone jack. It would be a adaptor the looks like a 6 pin din style into RCA
If not what you can or will have to buy is a Pre-Amp. This will be good for 3 reasons. One you will now have a EQ with seprate Bass control and #2 a Fader Front to rear you can use this fader to change or raise lower the volume betwen the tower and the hull speakers, and #3 you will get a Aux imput with a switch when your using your I pod just hit the switch. You can get a Rockford Fosgate PA-2 (This is what I have been describing) for around $150 thats what I have and use it work great

There are adapters that have RCAs and "trick" the headunit into thinking there is a headunit attached.

I would call Scorsche and some of the other adpater manufactures if Clarion doesn't work out for you.

Wes, get a FM transmitter if you don't have the hook ups. I ordered one through It's called an iTrip. They will start shipping in May sometime. With the FM transmitter you can use it on any system.

Wes, did you get your iPod to work with your Clarion???? I also have a 2002 Team edition and an iPod. I would like to wire mine as well. I tried the FM transmitter and it really does blow. Bob was right...

haven't had time to play with it yet. there is a BMWpila converter thing that will allow me to convert the factory bmw cd changer harness to RCAs, so that will work for my car. but i dunno if there is something similar for the clarion setup in the boat. I'm tempted to just burn a bunch of boat cds instead of bothering with getting the ipod up and running in it and worrying about protecting it from the elements. we'll see...

this is why there are cd/mp3 decks. 10 hours of music on one cd.

Yeah but ipods don't skip!

Just a thought, the wireless FM modulators suck pretty bad. They make wired ones, that actually connect to the antenna of your receiver. They work better than the wireless ones, but can still only achieve the frequency response of the receiver, which is typically less than that of a cd or other digital media.

I know their used to be EQ's that had extra inputs. Not for sure what is on the market today, but I would think you could find something that would give you an input to your system.

my cd/mp3 very rarely skips. pretty much only on double ups so that is a non issue! :-)

I just purchased an adapter for my Alpine in my truck. It converts their Ai-Net CD changer input to RCA. It is made by Alpine & I picked mine up at Tweeter.
