Ipod to Amp

Not looking to rattle windows, would like to hook ipod to an amp, then out to speakers. Head unit is Delco in my 84, would like to bypass that. Is there any way to run an equalizer/ volume control also ? Thanks.

Re: Ipod to Amp

So it has been about 10 yrs since i built my truck...i do not have a head unit at all.

I dont recall all that was done, but i just have an input wire to my phone. It has a gain control, and then volume by phone. I use to have an eq app that i used

Interior will be coming back out within the next few months as i am redoing my enclosure.

Re: Ipod to Amp

So I just figured how to do this and get a lot of functions at the same time. Dayton Audio released the DSP-408 a few months ago, and it is actually a good product. You can run an aux chord to the inputs, or if it is one with bluetooth, you can get the adapter. It allows you to set crossover points, and eq each output channel. It even has time delay built in.

Look for an amp intended for boats or side by sides. I think the one I have in my vw is a kenwood. It is an amp that powers 4 speakers and runs off my phone via bluetooth or aux cable. No head unit needed and everything can be hidden.
