Retain Bose/Nokia/Haes amplifier when replacing factory Becker with a Continental/VDO radio.

Continental/VDO are slowly becoming the choice for upgrading Becker factory radios in many European luxury vehicles. In some vehicles, Continental/VDO radios are a direct plug-n-play replacement, but not so much in vehicles with HI-Fi Bose/Nokia/Haes audio systems-- that is because unlike Becker radios; Continental/VDO radios do not have line-level outputs to drive factory 4x40W or 6x40W amplifier (under passenger seat); and therefore major modification to the factory wiring integrity would be required, but thanks to the ARH-CONTI harness these speaker level outputs are converted to line level allowing the factory amplifier to perform as it did with the OEM Becker radio. This harness takes the Continental/VDO radio speaker outputs (B chamber) to factory amplifier via the 6-pin (yellow) plug behind the dash to provide factory amp with line level and remote turn-on signal all without splicing or cutting. Because makes use of the radio 8-pin speaker output (B chamber); these output will no longer be available for direct speaker connection.
» Compatible with select Continental and VDO radios (See drop-down)
» 4-Full range Line-level outputs (Front and Rear) to factory amp
