    Adding a Generic Amp to my Audi A4

    Hi all,

    I've finally purchased an Audi stereo removal tool, hoping that their would be some standard phono output sockets on the back of the radio (and was I wrong!)

    Basically, I want to plug in a standard amp which has 2x Phono Connectors and a Remote connect (in order to send a signal to the amp which switches it on when the radio is on).


    As for the Remote cable, I believe this can just be powered by putting it on the negetive terminal - But will need to be done correctly as I don't want the amp on all the time!

    Has anyone done this before? I didn't really want to plug my standard CD Player in my car and remove the Audi one...


    I've also heard you can power the amp off the rear speakers? - i'm assuming with a Pre-Amp or something.

    Cheers,

    Nick

    you cant power the remote from just a negative!

    it needs a positive feed.. you can just loop it from the positive on the Amp but i dont recommend this as unless you fit a switch it will be on all the time

    however a switch can be useful for when you get sick of the bass
