Install Continental or VDO radio and easily retain Bose, Nokia or Haes amplifier.

Continental/VDO radios are slowly becoming the replacement radio choice for many European vehicle owners who wishes to retain the OE amplifier. In order to retain the OE amplifier, a line-level converter is required to drive factory 4x40W or 6x40W amplifier (usually under passenger seat, trunk etc.). The ARH-CONTI allows the Hi-Fi amplifier to perform as it did with the OE Becker radio. This plug-n-play solution connects the replacement radio's 8-pin speaker socket (B ) to mate vehicles 6-pin yellow plug behind dashboard . If installing radios with RCA preamp-outputs (including Blaupunkt Bremen SQR46 DAB), purchase our ARH-BKR instead.
