    AUX Volume problem

    I have a Pioneer DEH-3000 and wanted to install a AUX jack on my dash, when I look on the back of the unit I noticed there were 2 sets of RCA inputs one labeled front and the other rear. I made up a RCA jack that would plug into both (front and rear) and in to my MP3 player. It all works fine but I can only use the volume on the MP3 player, this makes for a overall low volume. I would like to use the unit volume; I’m not too worried about distortion. Do I have it wired correctly or is there something I can do in the unit itself? Do I need to use a Amp? Thanks

    Re: AUX Volume problem

    I would suggest that you use a head unit with an actual Auxiliary input. The RCA jacks on the back of your deck are outputs, not inputs; they're not meant to be used in the way you're using them. Your deck is not equipped with an Aux input, or any means of adding one.

    Thanks, it sounds like I could have hurt my Head unit. I was looking around and found this Hack (http://www.stereophonik.com/gutterslide/IP-BUS_Hack/)
    Do you think this would work?

    The "hack" won't work for you. Even if you purchased the Pioneer adapter, it's only for head units that are designed to use the P-bus plug as an aux input. Yours is not equipped with that feature.

    Re: AUX Volume problem

    I am a little confused, I looked on my faceplate and it says Pioneer DEH-P3000. then I look at my owners manual and it says that it is for DEH-P400, P300, and P200. the manual says that there is room to expand to a CD Changer witch I don’t have, I assume that the CD Changer hooks up through the IP BUS in the back of the unit. Correct me if I’m wrong but wouldn’t the CD Changer act as a AUX input, so wouldn’t I be able to use the hack that I posted earlier?

    Re: AUX Volume problem

    A Pioneer CD changer would hook up to the P-bus input, correct. However, without an actual CD changer to communicate with the head unit, you wouldn't be able to select CD Changer as a source. The P-Bus aux input on the page you linked (and the actual P-Bus aux input available from Pioneer) can't fool the deck into thinking there's a CD changer in place.

    Newer Pioneer head units have a built-in function to turn on an auxiliary input through the P-Bus. If you read carefully on the "hack" page, it tells you that you need to activate this function. However, your older deck isn't equipped with this feature.
