This device WORKS GREAT and I highly recommend it. Cost was ~$75US from
Crutchfield about 1.5-2 years ago. The device is about the size of a pack of
cancer-tubes, but thinner. It is wholly contained within a black anodized
heat-sink and has the look and feel of high quality. Instructions supplied
were simple, accurate and complete. Installation including the Sony
CD/Receiver I purchsed from Crutchfield at the same time was < 1hr. I used
the recommended vehicle wiring plug-in cable adapter from Crutchfield.
Crutchfield also supplied a recommended extra-cost relay to switch the Bose
amps on/off automatically via the head-unit as the Sony's internal switch is
only rated 1 amp. The relay was just a standard Bosch relay like you might
use with Eurolights or as a remote fuel-pump relay, nothing special really,
but it did make for a complete kit. The guys at Crutchfield appeared to
understand the issues involved with this vehicle and the Bose system very
well. I would definitely buy another Soundgate AUB1 converter had I a need
for another. (The Wife's wagon does not have the Bose system)Crutchfield
appears to offer good technical advice and support and I would do business
with them again.
