again,  just my two cents here but the beckers have a low voltage
output that uses a common ground.  this is why the becker will work in
place of the bose head unit w/o an adapter.  virtually all of the
aftermarket head units [including nakamichi] use a floating ground and
require an adapter to use w/ the bose amps.  even w/ an adapter you can
still pick up a hummmmmm sometimes.
