Would it be possible to hook up the rear speaker out on the RNS-E with a non original Audi amp? Or will the RNS-E sense that there is no original amp connected and therefore not put any sound out for the rear. It should work beacause i am right now not having any amp connected at al and i am not getting any fault codes indicating that the amp is missing!

a friend of mine replaced his Bose amp with an aftermarket one and it worked fine..

i would guess it should work.. the radio just sends line-out and an amp-turn-on signal to the OEM amplifier..

What pin is sending the turn on signal or as they call it sometimes "switched signal" ?
Thanks

The signals you need are on connectors B & D of the RNS-E.

On connector B:

Pin 3 - Front Left
Pin 5 - Rear Left
Pin 8 - Signal Ground
Pin 9 - Front Right
Pin 11 - Rear Right

On connector D:

Pin 13 - Switched +12V

Will it be possible connecting the out signal directelly to the RCA in on the amplifier or is the signal from the RNS-E a high level one?

I had new speakers installed up front along with a new amp and they used a line level converter. I don't have the Bose system so not sure if this applies.

Are we saying that the RSN-E has true line level output?

The speaker outputs (front ONLY) are on connector A - sounds like your installer used these signals.

The RNS-E provides line level outputs for all 4 speakers on connector C. Your installer could have used these.

Bose amp

I have connected my bose amp. in the 4 line outputs in c connector. I dont have bose pin connected at all. I dont see why it would not be possible to use same pins for aftermarket amp. I think these pins have same signal level...

Hey Popov, how did you connect?

Did you take the Pin 5 and Pin 11 as signal in to the ampl. And the Pin 13 as the trigger (remote)?
