    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.

    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 :)
