Default Phono Leads, Wht have plugs on both ends?

Why do phono leads have a white and red plug on both sides. I know the white
and the red lugs go into the amplifier but there is none for the head unit
of my radio. Blaupunkt Woodstock DAB 52. Why is this and can you buy special
connections as i have had to cut the two red and white plugs off the phono
lead and seperated the wires so i can connect them to my head unit.

They are for left and right. Usually the head unit would have an output female connector of each colour matching that.

Is this a car stereo - if yes does it have a pre-amp out? if no then you'll need to connect your speaker outs to the high level in on your amp or buy a gizmo to knock the high level signal down to pre amp levels, which can go into the amp.

Don't connect the speaker outs to your amps pre-ins!

I've just looked up on the Blaupunkt website, and it says you've got 4x preamp out. Post a pic of the back of your unit...

Cool - Do you hace the plug to go into C1?

Thats the interesting bit. It's a nice unit looking at the specs - on board x/o's ? nice!

I reckon if you try a decent car audio shop they'll have a lead that plugs into C1 and gives you the phono outs you are wanting.

hth
