    Hi All,

    Recently replaced my Audi Concert with Sony MEX-BT2700 and must say very impressed, only problem
    I have is intermitent signal with FM (Depends how you hold aerial and no MW).

    I've recently purchased a PC5-52 Aerial adaptor, would this improve my signal for both MW/FM & where do i connect blue lead?

    Any advice or pics would be most welcome.

    Thanks

    The blue lead should be for the power antenna, it may power the aerial amplifier. If your headunit has a PANT (or power antenna) wire then connect to this, if not you could connect to a remote wire so the wire will be fed power when your ignition is on. Don't connect to a perm live cable or else it will be on all the time even when the car is parked.

    blue lead is for amplifier remote lead it is a switched 12v live ... only live output is when headunit is on
    blue with white stripe is power antennae ... is a switched ignition live

    blue lead is only applicable if you want to turn on external amplifiers remotely
