It looks like an RCA to Din adapter.

But it is supposed to be hard wired. What would it be for?

The inline fuse points to a sound system in an automobile.

The inline fuse points to a mobile 12vdc application.
I don't recognize it directly.
Not really a standard DIN plug. Looks like a custom one.

Some guesses.... mobile GPS system, fish finder, mobile TV system.

Exactly, that's what an auto is, 12 volt DC

Thanks to all for responding. No idea where it came from and wanted to check before throwing it away.

My rule of thumb: If you throw it in the garbage, you'll need it in 2 weeks.
