There's a number of threads where folks gone with aftermarket amps and speakers. On the Bose, the PA is separate and driven with balanced audio outputs. On the non-Bose, you need to convert the speaker level outputs to line in.kraka said:What exactly would I need to install an after market amp for my subs and an Ipod to a non bose/sat receiver? Pac AAI-NIS? Thanks to all in advanced!
With PAC interface you will have two auxilury inputs (selectable by Preset ABC button, but only A and B) to which you can connect any input, including portable satelite. Like jaak mentioned, you still have to control sat radio through its own controls as PAC unit will only take the Audio in.See5 said:Not to butt in but:
Can a portable XM be plugged into the input in rear of Bose/nonBose with interface?
I finally got around to ordering my PAC. Are you still suffering from the lockup? I'm currently running an iPod thru a Belkin FM but running the hardline into my TV kit and using its FM modulator instead of the Belkin's (no dropouts like the Belkin). With the PAC, I'll plan to run the iPod into one input and probably a Sirius Sportster into the other until I replace the iPod with a carputer. Either way, I plan to use both PAC inputs. I'm concerned abou the lockup situation, obviously.zebelkhan said:
I have my carputer going to Aux A and XM Direct radio to Aux B. I have noticed that the screen "locks up" when I switch from preset A to Preset B. The audio switches but screen does not. Volume control also sometimes drops to zero. The only remedy I have found is to turn the radio off and then on. Then it works good until I switch presets. I noticed that happening after I started using both PAC inputs.
Ack, that sux. Has anyone posted detailed instructions for installing the PAC Audio adapter? I think someone used double-sided tape to attach it directly to the rear of the system, as I believe it perfectly matches the width of the stereo.zebelkhan said:My second PAC also has cross talk. According to the post from Pacific Audio (maker of PAC) on this thread
the crosss talk is a known issue and that is why, according to them, we have the remote wires to turn divices on or off.....
