absolutely true, couldn't have said it better. though i've seen a lot of them with chut put iPods. in fact, so long as a HU plays their iPod or pen drive, they hardly care what equipment it is.

Our beloved Bhai LBM Freedabadwale is not dependent on any installer or dealer. If he WANTS something, he will go to the end of the earth to get it himself, or import it.

PM him anyhow - he should be able to tell you what to do.

Default Using IPod in Altis

Dear Friends,

The Altis has a single Aux Line in (simple stereo jack). Is there a jack available to play my ipod on the same? Is it worth the effort? I hear that the controls are all lost when using the ipod; the manual does not mention the details at all.

Pl advise.

If there is only an input AUX jack, that means the player will simply route the input fed by the jack via its speakers.

Whatever you need to control, you need to do it on your iPod while it is connected. The only thing that you can control on your car music system would be the volume.

I don't think there is any aftermarket product that will allow you to control the player via the AUX jack.

( To play via your ipod , get a male to male Stereo cable, one end goes into your iPod, the other into the Aux jack )

Thank you so much for your suggestion. I was thinking that there may be a special line out cable using the charging port. (Since the regular headphone socket has some amount of amplification all the same.)

I did not understand what you meant by the controls are lost. I have been using the AUX cable in my Vista to connect iPOD for more than a year now. It works perfectly fine. It also has a single AUX line.

I guess what he means by controls are lsot is that, the HU cannot be used to control the iPod, like some players can, but instead only the volume button works.

All other control are only via the iPod. I had the same problem wen i tried it on my cars, though one of them has a USB port, but it did not detect the Ipod. I have to resort to the aux in port only. But it plays great none the less

Wink Something missing; overwhelming bass

Dear Friends,

The ICE bug seems to have bitten me. All over again.

I just got a JBL subwoofer attatched to my stock system in the Altis and for a day, it sounded fine. Now I tend to feel that something is missing again. The punch is there but not well defined. Maybe the bass is overwhelming the sound which sounded fine otherwise. At least to me.

Pl note: I sit in the rear alone. I do not get to drive anymore.

Do I go ahead and now change my rear speakers too. Get a splendid coaxial speaker pair to liven up the stage in the back seats. (Pl suggest which are the best.)

Pl advise.

Rgds,
druberoi

A small sealed box sub will offfer tighter bass than a bass tube. I dont know which JBL sub you have got but think sealed box for tight well defined bass. Not that proted boxes cannot do this but saledf boxes are generally more successful (for a myraid of technical reasons which we wont go into right now).

I dont drive much either. My solution is an ipod, a small headphone amp and a pair nice open ear headphones. This ensures that I can listen to music without disturbing my chauffer. The only issue I face is if I recieve a call on my mobile phone I have to first remove the headphone and then take the call.

I got the sealed JBL Sub as advised by yourself. So the base is fine. But the sound seems to overwhelm the remaining notes.
