    Transit ICE

    Need some help and info if you can people

    I have recently brought a Ford 6000 RDS CD double din player for the tranny. Now I want to know a couple of things.

    1. Can I hook up my Carbon rio MP£ player to it some where?
    2. Can I amp the speakers in anyway to it? As I want to add some components and a couple of subs

    I know you can hook up a CD changer to it so it does have some sort of input/output but nothing more. Also I am hoping to put the nokia hands free kit through it.

    Any info advice would be appriciated

    Putting the Nokia hands free kit through it and the van's speakers is the easy but with a Autoloads adaptor

    For adding amps all I know you could do is a speaker to RCA adaptor and for your MP3 input your looking at a FM modulator

    Someone else might know different though

    I blame it on the duffel coat massive.


    ...you can get an aux in....but not with a CD changer (which you would'nt need with an mp3 player anyway.

    I do need the CD player really as I often buy my CD's whilst at work and I like to listen to them, look at CD box for a while before they get ripped and filled in the shelfing that contains the CD collection

    You can get an FM modulator for the MP3 which sounds fine for that buts its the RCA/amp problem I need to get around

    Amp is not a problem at all. Fords I think use a common ground type setup (or they do in the States, not sure here but anyhow I digress. You have two options the cheaper option and the more expensive:

    Cheaper option:

    What you need is a speaker level adapter. Do not get a cheapo as they are not worth it. Try the Alpine 4311 Speaker to RCA Adapter. 1 does two channels 2 for 4 channels. The nice thing is it is a balanced line adapter and provides a decent output for the amps. Priced around £20.

    Best option:

    JL Audio Cleansweep or the Audiocontrol LC6. Both are speaker level adapters with built in equalizers and line drivers. Think 8V or 12V outputs to RCA and in the JL audio case Auto equalisation of the soundstage. Both excellent but both in the region of £120 to £200. Each device I think can cater up to 6 channels but would need to check.

    Simple really but anyhow if I see a white van bouncing along with the shell flexing under Bass tones, I will know just who it is

    If you need further info Pm me.
