Radio: DIN to RCA Connector

Post by 93Regina » Sun Apr 21, 2019 12:44 pm

So, with a 1990 Volvo Radio (Cr-712 Etr 4-S - Volvo (3523509), could a 5-Pin Din Male to 2-RCA Male connector be used to hookup amp via another radio?

I have no wiring diagram on how radio's DIN was setup

This backside shown is similar to radio I have

Footnote - Apparently, there were two different radios. One version powered a 4 channel amp, and the other version powered a two channel amp. See: CR-712 DIN Pinouts

Radio I have appears to power up a two channel amp, and radio itself powers front speakers only. I'll have to double check now that I learned this.

But mine is like this, but a DIN is used to connect to a 2 channel amp

Long story short, 1990 Volvo I bought recently from a "flipper" was fiddling about...I'll have to tear off center console to find out how he failed.
