    BLU-C5
Fall in love all over again with the sound system in your American classic without changing anything.

Wouldn't it be nice to simply step into your ride and be able to stream your own audio applications without wires or cables dandling from the dash? To add Bluetooth many C5 owner have opted to install an FM modulator (low fidelity/noisy) or gone as far as replacing the radio; but does replacing the radio really add value to your American classic? With the BLU-C5 streaming module; Corvette owners are able to stream internet music (Pandora, Spotify, XM radio, Apple music etc.), audio books, GPS guidance and other important application while on the road to work or cruising around town all without changing the radio or altering the dashboard. To enhance the experience, add one of the following to your module: optional AUX input: (wired connection) allows users to also connect/play devices with a 3.5mm jack (e.g. MP3 player, SiriusXM kit, car play etc.); a smart remote control: (control phone functions with minimum distraction); a USB-type C charging port: (keep devices charged while on the road). Please read entire Install guide for all details regarding these add-ons.
Users also decide where to connect the BLU-C5 module: (1) At the radio (Bose or Non-Bose) or (2) to 10-pin "CD" plug in trunk/hatch* (Bose or Non-Bose)- your choice! Regardless of install location (radio or trunk/hatch); the 12-disc changer (if present) must be disconnected. To retain use of the 12-disc changer, purchase our A2D-C5 instead.

    This module works exactly as stated in the description. I installed it last week and since then have been streaming Pandora as well as playlists off my Apple Music collection. Great instructions which you can peruse prior to ordering. It's great to listen to music without commercials or skipping CDs. Highly recommended.

    I recently installed the bluetooth system in my C5 and it is amazing. Install was easy and it works perfectly. The system links quickly to my iPad and the remote attached easily to the parking brake handle and also works perfectly.
    Thank you to Jay and for his assistance.

    Following the death of my factory 12-CD changer in my C5 Corvette, I sought a Bluetooth solution to ridiculously expensive repair or replacement of the complex 12-CD changer. I tried a Bluetooth/FM modulated solution which was susceptible to interference from other radio stations.
    Finally I found the affordable BLU-C5 Music Streaming Kit from Discount Car Stereo, which was the perfect solution while maintaining the factory Bose radio and superb sound system! Installation was a snap, taking less than an hour with most of the time consumed running the power line from the trunk to the cabin fuse block located behind passenger toe board.

    Thanks Discount Stereo for marketing and selling this great product!
