The BOSE woofer connects to the BOSE amplifier in the trunk, not to the RNS-E - why do you need to know the connections?

Connectors

Hi;

Thanks for the reply, the problem is that the woofer doesn't work because the connectos to the rns-e are diffente, so with the pinout from the rns-e with the pinout of the bose amplifier i can make tthe connection.
I think is like this..right?

Thanks for your help

The woofer is not directly connected to the RNS-E, it's connected to the amplifier which is itself connected to the line out of the RNS-E.

Why don't you start telling us what car you have (model/year), what kind of radio you had installed before, with or without Bose, and where you got you adapter harness from. That would make it easier to help you.

I'm not sure about the exact layout of the Bose system but doesn't each speaker (or at least each channel) have its own Bose amp? Ralph's adapter should get your RNS-E connected to the Concert harness in your car ut I'm not sure how the Bose amp(s) are wired. Did you try to get the Bose system installed first and try it with the Concert radio? Doing so would exclude any issue you may have with the RNS-E adapter.

Don't have it anymore

Hi Audi;

First, thanks for your help.
Don't have it anymore (concert II) sold

I ask to Ralf the adapters for the bose system...but doesn't work..i don't know why. The speakers and the rest are ok...the electrician tested them before.
i don't understand, that's why i need the pinout...it would be easier. :lol:

I think you have mis-understood how the BOSE amplifier connects to the RNS-E.

I have a 2004 B6 S4 with BOSE and RNS-E (was Symphony II).

The ONLY connections from the RNS-E to the BOSE amplifier are:

Left Front signal
Left Rear signal
Right Front signal
Right Rear signal
Switched +12V
Ground

Note - NO sub woofer connections, the BOSE amplifier generates the sub-woofer drive signal itself from the 4 main signals.

The BOSE amplifier (on a B6 A4/S4 it's one amplifier for ALL speakers) is mounted in the right rear of the car by the fuel filler, and the sub-woofer is in the same place.

So if your sub-woofer is not working then the fault is either in the output connections from the BOSE amplifier or the connections to the sub-woofer - nothing to do with the RNS-E.

It's a pity you have sold your Concert II before completing the RNS-E install, it would have been useful for testing. You have changed 2 things - RNS-E for Concert II, and added BOSE. So fault finding will require more thought and care.

Sounds to me like you need the connections of the BOSE amplifier, NOT the connections of the RNS-E. I have that information on a PC at home and can PM them to you later today if that would help?

That's it

Thanks everyone for your help.

What i need, now i understand is the connectors between the amplifier and the woofeer.
It's an 25 pin connector...i need the male and female pinout because audi don't sell it, sell only the full package.
So if you can help me....

Thanks 8) 8)
