30-Pin Charge and Play


Additional Audio/Video Inputs
These inputs enable the unit to receive an audio or video signal from a separate source. There are many different types of connections and ways to accomplish this. Most common are RCA Composite cables and 3.5mm mini-jack plugs.

RCA Composite Inputs
These are your typical red, white, and yellow RCA composite cables that are common among devices with audio and video inputs. The red and white cables are dedicated for audio. The red cable is for the right channel and the white is for the left channel. The yellow cable is specifically for the video signal. Because this type of auxiliary cable contains 2 channels of audio, it will support stereo sound.

This is commonly referred to as a mini-jack or a headphone jack. It is a 3.5mm plug that transfers audio only. There is a right and left audio channel on the plug which allows for stereo sound playback.

3.5mm AV Input
These plugs look similar to the common 3.5mm mini-jack, however they carry a third channel dedicated for video.

This means that an auxiliary input is possible, but only with the use of an optional accessory. These optional adapters will sometimes use the CD Changer port or other port on the back of a unit that might restrict the use of other expandability features. These accessories are typically sold separately.

What defines factory refurbished? What work has been done
Joel P on Jul 28, 2015
Best Answer: The item was sent back to manufacter and gone through to see problem. It might be a solder,wireing or board problem. After a complete diagnosis, it s scrapped or repaired. Unlike new ones where QC might check 1 in a few hundred on the production line. I have bought at least a half dozen reman products over the years including 2 Kicker car amps at 5+ years and still going strong! I have and will continue to buy reman products. But only manufacter remans. So buy with confidience!

when my phone is to be connected to auxiliary no sound is to be made. why?
Brent Q on May 19, 2015
Best Answer: I use the 30 pin to lightning adapter from Apple. I bought a cheap aftermarket adapter and it would charge my iPhone 6 but would not play music. I have not tried using the auxiliary input to play music.
