ALP/Ai-3.5 Auxiliary Input adapter for select Alpine Ai-Net Radios

ALP/Ai-3.5 Auxiliary Input adapter for select Alpine Ai-Net Radios
Auxiliary input cable for Alpine Versatile-Link™ Ready Radios.
What is an auxiliary input adapter? An auxiliary input adapter is a passive device that connects to the CD Changer Port on select Alpine Ai-Net head units and converts it to an Audio input. Once installed the user is able to connect many Audio devices to the Alpine radio for a clean audio connection and the ability to "tune" the add-on source with Bass Engine™ features. This ALP/Ai-3.5 offers audio performance that is more enjoyable than substandard FM-modulated solutions for connecting entertainment devices to the Alpine Radio.

Frequently asked question
1. My Alpine radio has a cd changer port on the back, will this part work?
A-- Yes, but only if the radio is V-LINK ready OR NON-VERSATILE LINK radios with a pink/black wire in the power/speaker harness.
2. I already have an Alpine CD changer connected, will i have to sacrifice the cd changer to use this cable?
A- YES, but PIE's ALP-AUX adapter will allow you to keep the CD Changer and provide an aux input.
3. I understand Alpine has two bus systems, ai-net and m-bus, how do i identify an Ai-Net radio?
A- Alpine Bus systems can be identified by looking at the 3rd letter in the model number-- if it's an "A" then Ai-NET, if it's an "M" then M-BUS examples: CDA-9811 (Ai-net), CDM-7874 (m-bus)
