Line-in on ST II stereo head unit


Hi All,

Does anyone have any info on the line-in facility of the ST II stereo head unit?

According to the manual the head unit has a line level input which is automatically selected when that input becomes "active". The manual implies this input is for an optional CD stacker - I'm guessing the activation is via a voltage being present on one of the input pins when the stacker is turned on.

I want to connect my music player to the stereo, and this line-in looks to be a good option, if I can determine the pinouts. Could I ask someone with a service manual to please check if this connector is documented?

Thanks in advance,
Ben

The "line in" is used by the optional stacker and is like you say automatically selected when a cd from the stacker is selected.

as I understand it, the "line in" is actually a plug, I can't confirm this right now, as my exy is not here right now, nor are the manuals and diagrams of the stacker wiring.

Sorry Ben,

I could not find the information about the ST II type of head-unit in the service manual at all.

It only talks about the Ti (double-DIN) type of head-units which doesn't have that connector.

I believe this connector can only be used with the factory stand-alone CD stacker as an upgrade option. (I could be wrong)

You may need to find out who the manufacturer of the head unit is and contact them. I believe someone has previously mentioned they were Clarion units, but I may be wrong.

From looking at the back of the head unit (series 1 though) there is a round socket which presumably has stereo in and out, but I've not seen a diagram for this anywhere.

Re: Line-in on ST II stereo head unit


Ok, I've pulled my radio from the car and had a closer look.

The manufacturer's "FMS Audio", which apparently is a Sanyo company that just does OEM radios. A web search on what apears to be the model number (B8185-6M902) doesn't turn up anything useful.

In the hope of tracing the 8-pin DIN (round) plug connections, I opened 'er up. Unfortunately the radio's not made to be serviced - the PCB's fixed to the case by twisted metal tabs (screws must've just cost toooo much!).

This is the end of the road for me - the pretty mediocre specs, plus the fact that the radio beeps every time you change channels, mean I've decided to just replace the unit with a better model with line-in.

I've been frustrated on that approach too - is it just me or do the current batch of car radio's look like they belong in a jet fighter cockpit? Any suggestions for a simple good quality CD+radio, 4x20+W/channel, no flashing lights and a rotary/analog volume control?

Ben

go for a lower end pioneer - not too many bells and whistles, rotary controls and 4x50w mosfet standard. Most of em do mp3 now too and theres several models under $200
