Ghetto Blaster is an older stereo system typically seen on an individual's shoulder as they walk down the street in an 80s music video. This stereo does allow for some portability, and although it does not play CDs, you can listen to the radio or cassette tapes whenever you choose. If you want to add a portable CD player into the mix, you need to adjust the audio input into an auxiliary, which gives you a cable connection for the CD player.

Things you need

  1. 1

    Insert the RCA ends of the cable into the "Audio In" ports of your Ghetto Blaster stereo system (located on the rear of the device).

  2. 2

    Connect the 3.5mm end of the cable into the headphone jack on your portable CD player (or MP3 player).

  3. 3

    Power on the Ghetto Blaster and the connected audio device. Select the audio input option on the Ghetto Blaster and play the audio from the connected hardware. The audio from the CD/MP3 player now plays over the device's speakers.
