    Hi guys, i,ve not long bought my A3 and would like to fit a CD player instead of the Concert cassette player.

    I have bought a Pioneer cd player for it, and i cant figure out which adapter i need. As far as i know i dont have Bose, i have a sub in the boot, but it only has 1 speaker.

    I have been scratching my head over this for the past hour and a half, i think i need a 401 or 404 adapter, but not sure which. Are there any other adapters i need for the antenna?

    Any help would be great

    dave

    You need the PC9-404 RCA input adapter and the PC5-52 ISO antenna amp adapter. You will have to fade to rear quite a bit to balance the sound as you will now have over twice the power going to the fronts and still the puny 2 x 20w from the rear amp.
