Easily connect aftermarket amplifiers to Continental and VDO radios.

Due to their ability to support modern media formats; Continental & VDO radios are slowly becoming the radio choice for older European luxury vehicles (BMW*, Porsche, Audi, Mercedes, Ferrari, Lamborghini etc.) These replacement radios are capable of producing 41Wx4 (Max) which is similar to OE, but if looking to elevate to a new level or clarity and fullness, we highly recommend adding an amplifier and/or powered subwoofer. Unfortunately Continental & VDO radios lack line-level outputs required by most amplifiers and because of that a line-level converter is required. The AiH-CONTI signal sensing technology turns amplifier on/off when radio is turned on/off and unlike most universal line-converters, it is custom fitted with plugs/sockets matching both the Continental/VDO radio and vehicle ISO speaker/power plugs (must have OE plugs) which means factory wiring integrity is not compromised and audio system can easily return to original if and when vehicle is offered up for sale or trade.
Note:To install Continental/VDO radios in Hi-Fi systems (Nokia, HAES, or Bose); purchase our ARH-CONTI instead.
