    Concert 3 in 2003 8P

    I have got my mits on a virtually brand new Concert 3. Problem is my 53 plate has the old style ISO plugs. Is there adaptor I can buy so I can install the Concert?
    I had a serach, but its so confusing with all the different versions.

    You'll need to add a safe wire next to the power pin in the quadlock. Link the +12V to the empty pin above it.

    ALso if you have BOSE it's in a different position on the 12 pin connector B than the RNS-E, move it from 7 to 5 if you have BOSE.

    You will also need a dual Fakra adaptor to join the two HF fakra connectors to the one ISO connector of the existing radio. The existing setup is HF/ZF and the new radio is HF/HF, so the idea is to connect both HF's to the one HF and not use the ZF.

    Think that might be 3 to 7 actually.

    No it's 5, I've checked on ELsawin

    5 - BOSE coding to earth (only with BOSE)

    3 is the AUX in

    3 - NF in, earth (low frequency) (not used)

    Basically you need the Kufatec adaptor for your options, I would just gof or everything TEL, CD and select BOSE or non BOSE depending on what sound system you have. This one is specifically for Concert II+ or COncert 3, whatever you wnat to call it.

    http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_i...ymphony-3.html

    Now the cheap way to do the antenna is with a Y splitter like this

    http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_i...n---FAKRA.html

    And the ISO adaptor like this.

    http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_i...nit-RNS-E.html

    Using these 3 components it should be plug and play....

    Yes, the second two plug together to make an ISO to dual FAKRA.

    Well basically your car may have two antenna connections for the current radio. The HF connection on a standard ISO plug and the ZF on a mauve coloured FAKRA. We are only interested in the HF connection, so we need to convert that to FAKRA for the new concert II+. The third lead does this, it takes the ISO and gives you a FAKRA.

    Now the concert II+ needs 2x HF feeds and the second leads splits the single HF connection into two connectors for the dual HF required by the concert II+.

    Clear as mud.

    HF - ISO ---> FAKRA ---> FAKRA - HF1
    .............................\--> FAKRA - HF2

    Ignore the dots, they were just to make the spacing correct.

    lol, yes that a fair point mate, but if I was you I'd save up the cash then swap over as same antenna system as your car iirc for the rns-e, well worth the dough, really is, even for the sd slots

    well this is the post craig sent when i didnt know what to do..

    Whatever you do just make sure that you move it out of pin 3 and into pin 7. Make sure also that it does go back to the brown BOSE wire on the 8 pin plug. Although looking at it, the wire could go to the one adjacent as that is DWA-GND or alarm ground which is also a ground pin so has the same affect as the BOSE wire.

    I always get 3 and 5 the wrong way around, 3 is the VSIG for the RNS-E and 5 is the K line, so that's why I muddle them up.

    My apologies if that is what I originally posted.

    So have i got it right with my BOSE wire going to 7 ? I followed it from the original plug via its colour to 3 on the multi lock plug and the RNSE was maked as BOSE 7 on its wireing diagram ?

    Cheers

    Well i followed the mauve wire from the car plug that went to Bose on the Symphony and it went to the number 3 pin so i moved it to the No.7 pin on the quad lock. It worked because the sound went from mega base back to a much better/even BOSE sound.

    This is the Symphony diagram. The bose is marked



    This is the corisponding plug from the car with Bose bottom right/mauve. When pluged into the quadlock that mauve wire goes to No3 !

    Speed signal is for A6 RNS-E where the can bus does not carry the speed signal so it is provided on a discreet wire. It can also be used in 8L A3 and B5 A4.
