    Soon to be a3 owner and want to install alpine stereo

    I know this must of been asked so much but I'm confused. I want to connect my Alpine Ida 311 head unit to Audi. It has a concert II installed at min so I know it not bose.

    So what connectors do I need. I want all four speakers working. Head unit has all connectors for amps rcas and that. Don't mind finding a 12v for it because I had to do that on Alfa. Looked at autoload CT51-AU02 or pc9–

    Thanks in advance

    It's concert ii atm. I know it's 4 speakers but other than that not sure toll pick up sat. I wanted to fit my Alpine straight away that's all. Also are speakers same size all round because I've got some 6.5 inch spare

    theres also another fascia adaptor which is fp-05-08
    pc-9 401 and pc9-404 are essentially the same but the 404 lead has phono outputs which go to an aftermarket amplifier
    the 401 has iso connections which go to the standard amplifier

    bose model is 408
    audi active iso amplified is 409
    bose or fully amplified to phono is 410

    Right. Well I've ordered 404 because seems to be most popular when I search forum. I thought the phonos go to my Alpine head unit and send low level to Audi amp. I don't understand why it's so complicated. On my Alfa brought a iso and the only other thing I had to was find a switch 12v. I can't seem to get a definite answer on this.

    Oh I ordered the fascia off the eBay link above now but thanks

    All fits and works. Sub and rear speakers with out crackle. Only thing is ordered wrong radio booster and it don't fit. The radio wire has a connector that fits my Alpine and a square blue connector that used to connect to concert stereo. Would this be a 12v lead. Should I just power it

    best thing to do is post a photo of it or find me a link to an identical item

    the picture you have put up is a "fakra" radio connector which is a standard radio aerial you can get convertors to iso and various other inputs and outputs
