    Hi guys

    I'm getting an Alpine HU soon. I understand i need a Bose adapter for it to plug into the back of it? I have a fully amped Bose system in my S3, what adapter do i need and where from??

    Thanks

    Ajay

    the pop only happens when i turn the tuner on and off, not the stereo. I'm sure i only paid about £15 delivered for mine. was cheaper than ebay i know that much.

    depends if ur full bose or not. If full itll pop on/off, changing track, when you mute on/off, someone phones you (parrot), gets really annoying after a while.

    Definitely the connects2 one. Tried two auto leads before giving up on them. Zero issues with the connects2 one though :)

    Sorry to thread crash, but will the connects 2 one work on my car? It's a 2000 S3 with a bose cd changer and an amp... (Not sure if it's full or partial amped)
