RCA jacks on the back of the Harmon Kardon?

I bought an iron aces mount that came with "Simple Polywire" hookup for an iphone and hooks in to the power and then to the stereo via RCA jacks. Are there RCA jacks in the back of the Harmon Kardon?

Does anyone have this hooked up? If so could you tell me where you hooked the power wires to? Also, do I need to plug the iphone to the iphone jack to charge and the 3.5mm jack to the stereo to hear it?

No RCA jacks on the back of the stock HK unit

Overtime pays more because of what you're missing, money isn't everything.

Think it will work with either the AUX port OR RCA maybe to accommodate different application (kinda universal)

Looks like it pulls power from the under seat plug, has the 30-pin iPhone connector for phone output and either 3.5mm jack or RCAs for radio input

No RCAs on the HK.

Iron Cross Audio will install f/r pre amp outs in your HK that are female RCAs

I don't know why the unit that you pictured would have RCAs in one end unless you could plug directly into an amp? I would be curious to hear what the manufacturer says they are for.

the 30 pin iphone connector goes in the phone up on the mount and the "L" shaped jack plugs into the aux port on the front of the radio.

looks like this when all plugged in (minus the garmin)

Does the iphone charge due to the 30 pin plug being plugged in?

The iPhone charges with the 30 pin and the audio is run through the Aux connector.

PM or call me if you have issues with it.

ICA can also install an iPod charge and play cable that will eliminate the need to plug into the front aux
