    Kufatec adapter: Bose or NonBose?

    Hi!

    I've rently installed a RNSe navigation on my car and bought the necessary adapter from Kufatec.
    I have Bose sound system on the car. Although I've mentioned this when I've placed the order, I think the adapter is missing the Bose wire. Am I right?

    Well it will sound better without it.
    The Bose wire is just an earth going to the Bose pin on the back of the HU. It just puts the HU into Bose mode (no highs no lows it must be Bose) which flattens out the EQ on the HU so the bass & treble have very little effect. You can either just add it to the adapter or live with bass & treble controls that actually work properly.

    This is what the guys from Kufatec told me about the wire: This wiring is the pin for bose ground. This pin we have connected directly from Pin 12 to B7 (Bose Pin) on the quadlock connector.

    I'll have to check.
