06.08.2006: Interconnects
The head unit has a proper pre-amp output. A DIN-8 jack might be hard to locate, but I was fortunate to find a female connector that plugs right into the factory amplifier cable. Solder it to the interconnect cable, you will need the four channels and the "amp turn-on" signal. Most interconnects will already come with an integrated turn-on wire.

Audio system upgrade on a 1995 Saab 900 SE convertible. The goal of this project was to improve the sound in the car. I kept the factory head unit because it has a reasonable sound quality, integrates with the SID and has a nice stock look. The remaining components were, however, replaced completely - new speakers, new wiring and a more powerful four-channel amplifier.

The job was done as a part of the car rebuild, so the interior is shown partially stripped. For dash removal and other interior disassembly issues refer to other documents.
