Your audio source will go into the FM trans. Most units will accept rca (red/white) line in. Some will also have a stereo mini jack input. As for using your I phone most DO NOT have the FM radio option turned on.
I advise folks to bring some type of FM radio. I have about 50 Sony Walkmans just in case. If I'm doing a drive in they use the car radio.
Last season I investigated the I phone FM radio with no luck.


see you at the movies

Yea, I'm pretty much going to echo what Movieman had to say.  Most phones are a no go due to no FM receiver.  However I have  broadcast my sound at my BYT for 10 years.  Folks bring radios and / or walkmans with headset, it's not a big deal.  If you tell people ahead of time that they will need to bring a radio and if your trying to contain your sound you can require they bring headphones.  It shouldn't be an issue.  I have two loaner units rarely do they get used, but then again I've been doing it for a long time and it's mostly regulars so folks know. 

Most FM transmitters have RCA or 1/8 jack to plug your audio into.  If you have some sort of processing for your audio you can have your transmitter hooked up after that.  Don't forget to have an antenna hooked up to your transmitter when you turn it on.  On some units it's quite have on the final stage to turn them on with out a transmitter. 

Let me know if you want to talk more about broadcasting it's one of those things that I'm really into.
