Installing Continental/VDO Radios and retaining Bose/Nokia amplifier?

Porsche 911, 993, 986, 996, 964 Hi-Fi Audio system includes a 4x40W or 6x40W amplifier (under passenger seat) and unlike Becker radios, Continental & VDO aftermarket radios do not have pre-amp outputs which becomes an issue for those wanting to retain the factory amplifier and factory wiring integrity. The ARH-CONTI converts high-level speaker outputs to line level and also features signal sensing which turns-on the amplifier whenever audio signal is present on the speaker lines. Connection is made to 8-PIN ISO (B) chamber on the Continental & VDO radio and to the factory 6-pin (yellow) amplifier plug behind the dash.
