    Stupid question but you have connected the power lead on the booster to the power antenna lead on the Alpine?

    Why did you do that? The amp needs to be turned on/off with the Hu otherwise it'll drain your battery.
    Could be a duff antenna amp, I would try a different one or just stick a short length of wire coathanger into the aerial connector if all you want is FM

    the alpine wont turn off with the ignition......i do it manually.

    you sent me a link a while back.
    for the booster and i lost it.

    i have been in touch with the specialist as well and they say your not always guaranteed
    a good signal with one fitted :S

    why do audi make things so complicated
