I have the 6 cd mp player. There is an aux button,
anyone know if you can add a jack (input) for an Ipod, etc?

I believe the aux only works if you have the factory dvd player. the dvd player has rca inputs. I just recd. my FS and will be trying that route soon. I couldn't believe that the radios have no aux input up front. blew my mind that any new car that wasn't a base model wouldn't have that. BTW, search the entire group for "aux" or "satellite" and you will find many, many posts dealing with this issue.
#4 of 29 Subwoofer question
Nov 30, 2006 (8:29 pm)
Anyone have any idea what kind of subwoofer is in the Limited "audiophile" sound system? How big is it? Is it powered, or is there a system amp?
I ask because I'm looking to upgrade the system in my SEL, and one option might be to simply add a powered sub to the stock head unit. Another option might be an aftermarket head unit, but I'm wondering what kind of subwoofer might fit into that little enclosure in the right rear where the sub lives in Limited models.
Thanks for any help!

Let us know if you figure out a way to get a sub into "that little enclosure in the right rear". I've never figured out a way to do it without seriously disfiguring things.
#6 of 29 LTD Subwoofer
Dec 22, 2006 (7:59 am)
I have replaced the factory radio wiyth a JVC head and satelite receiver. The install was simple and works great. But in doing so the sub is no longer connected in the system. I beleive the sub is amplified and driven by the 8 pin amplifier cable. (Only four wires are populated in this harness.
Does anyone have the wiring digram for this connector? My head unit has a sub output and I would like to wire it into the factory subwoofer.
Thanks for your help.
#7 of 29 Aux Input?
Dec 28, 2006 (10:03 am)
After reading prior messages, still not clear what the aux input connection is. Is it RCA jacks? I want to use it for an XM radio and am hoping to find an inexpensive fix. Does anyone know where I can find out?
#9 of 29 Upgrades to the SEL system
Jan 13, 2007 (7:15 am)
We have an '05 SEL with the DVD entertainment system. While the system works great I am less than impressed with the sound. I am not interested in changing out the stock head unit, but was wondering if anyone has changed out the stock speakers with higher quality units? If so, how did it affect the sound?
It also seems the SEL system is weak on power. Has anyone added an amplifier to the system. If so how, and how did it affect the sound?
#10 of 29 freestyle cd shuffle question

I just got my 2005 Freestyle yesterday and can't find any documentation on how to make the cd shuffle shuffle all cds. Is this just not possible?
