iPOD input to factory GM HU

Hey there... I was wondering...

Is there any way by which to add an ipod to a factory hu in an '01 corvette z06? I'm not interested in one of those wireless deals but could the ipod be hard wired in somehow?

Thanks all

Absolutely you can, just need to get one of these units here. I believe MR2NR is an Audio Control dealer so if you were to contact him he would let you know pricing etc.
Hope this helps you

Sounds to me that he has a stock system and no aftermarket parts in it. This means that the Audio Control would not be in his best interest, thank you for the props though 420guy, every little bit helps a small store like mine.

OP, can you confirm the rest of the system please.

Sorry, ya guys you 'd think I was a noob LOL

It's a totally stock setup at the moment. I was considering a small sub and single amp for a little bass over the stock system. I didn't want to to a total system though. I've already got a new audiocontrol 24xs, EQX and EQS all in the boxes but don't think those will help me out with the iPOD.

Although the car didn't come factory CD changer option I see no reason to surmise that the factory HU doesn't have the input for the changer in the back.

Would the epicenter "plus" fill both roles with the ipod and the sub amp ability?

Maybe a little more info on both particular options?

Any help appreciated.. thanks

What?? I thought that was exactly the purpose of this unit. To add a subwoofer and amp to the factory system. Also has the Ipod input. If I were him that is exactly what I would be looking for. If I read something wrong please let me know what.
Thanks

i'm oretty sure the epicenter was created to enhanse the "lower end frequencies" in songs by adjusting the 'sweep' and 'wideness'. also jacks up the RCA voltage i believe

So I guess I'll jack my own thread here LOL Would the epicenter "plus" or whatever its called flip the bill and allow be to hook up an amp using speaker level inputs in addition to the iPOD and could the other specified option work on a factory GM HU?

If you have no plan on changing the stock speakers and adding a amp for them, how do you plan on getting the input from the IPOD to the factory system? The Audio Control unit is fine IF you plan on taking the input and passing the signal along for full range amplification then to the appropriate speakers.....

Nick, his original post made no mention of any type of system, just ipod integration into the stock head unit. As such the Audio Control would not work for him. The Audio Control unit is a line driver, a advanced LOC, a bass resoration device and of course provides a AUX input. If he plans on adding a full complement of outboard amplifiers and new speakers, then this model could indeed be used.
