This fitting kit is supplied with a fascia adapter panel suitable for a single or double din aftermarket radio. The fascia adapter allows the fitting of an aftermarket radio into the dashboard by matching the shape and style of the original radio. Use the fascia with the supplied pocket to fit a single din radio, or use the fascia adapter with the supplied fitting cage to install a double din radio.
A Quadlock to ISO adapter cable with CANbus steering control interface is supplied in the kit. This cable adapts from the original connector in the car, known as a quadlock, to standard aftermarket connectors for the new stereo, known as ISO connectors. The CANbus steering wheel control interface will retain the use of the original radio controls on the steering wheel with an aftermarket stereo. The CANbus interface generates a key present ignition supply to the new stereo, this means the stereo will turn on with the first click of the key and stay on until the key is removed from the ignition barrel. The interface also generates speed pulse, reverse gear and handbrake output signals, these are used when installing multimedia, navigation units and reverse cameras. This interface is built into the Quadlock to ISO harness adapter so installation is plug and play.
A universal patch lead is supplied in the kit, this is to pair the steering control interface to the steering control input of Alpine, Clarion, JVC, Kenwood, Pioneer and Sony head units.
The plug and play Quadlock to ISO cable also has a built in high to low level adapter for the amplified speakers. All Audi TT 8J model cars have fully amplified audio systems. The adapter allows the new stereo to work with the original amplifier which drives all the speakers in the car and the subwoofer. The high to low level adapter gives a much cleaner audio signal to the amplifier compared to using line output phono leads.
A double Fakra to DIN antenna adapter is included in the kit. This adapts from the original style antenna connectors in the car, known as Fakra connectors, to a standard aftermarket connector for the new stereo, known as a DIN connector.
