What is an MP3 Changer Adapter?
MP3 Changer adapters are small electronic control units or converter leads (dependent upon vehicle and radio) and their approximate sizes are (L80mm x H35mm x D55mm) for the box type or (L160mm to L400mm) for the lead type. MP3 changer adapters are a simple way of connecting and controlling an Alpine aftermarket MP3 changer from your Factory installed radio.
Simplified, your factory radio talks a different electronic language to the aftermarket MP3 changer. So the MP3 changer adapter simply translates this so both components can communicate and work in synergy.
So if you already have an Alpine MP3 changer, using this adapter is perfect for a low cost upgrade producing outstanding sounding results.
Alpine MP3 Changer Adapter Installation
Alpine MP3 Changer adapters install at the rear of your radio or onto the pre-wired MP3 lead (if applicable) for your particular car make and model and the MP3 Changer connects to the other side of the adapter by push-fit connection.
Adapter installation to the car wiring is either by push-fit connection (in the majority of cars) or alternatively by connecting 2 wires from a choice of 3 sources (earth, 12v or 12v switched). To aid installation you also get comprehensive installation instructions.
Alpine MP3 Changer Installation
MP3 Changer installation is generally far easier than you would expect. Alpine MP3 Changers can mount in the boot, glove box or even under a seat and offer multi-angle mounting for installation flexibility. (Compare this MP3 changers dimensions with your available space)
Connection is via the included 5M robust data lead by push-fit connection to one side of the MP3 Changer adapter, and this lead is simply tucked under your interior plastic trim out of site. The other side of the adapter connects to the car wiring as detailed above.
The MP3 changer is mounted using the included brackets and screws, or for easy installation FREE Adhesive Velcro is available if required (request this via email after ordering). Full installation instructions are supplied with each changer. Modern suspension technology allows skip free play-back from your home burned CD-Rs and CD-RWs, MP3s as well as original CDs.
