Fitting sony dab radio

Recommended Posts

Ok gang before I start I want to say I googled and looked at the how to pages on here but still can not find what I want .I managed to get a ford/sony dab radio out of a kuga . As I am sure you are aware the fusion aerial connector is just a round plug ,but the the aerial connections on the back of the radio are black and white jacks . Please tell me there is an adaptor I can get for my car :sad:

There might be an adaptor, but I think you might need the Kuga antenna, and it might even need a pre-amp.

Thanks paulkp I have managed to find an adaptor for the car and the radio, I can listen to a cd so I do not think I need an amp am I right in thinking the sony has its own power for the dab radio ? I hope to get the parts this week so fingers crossed

I'm thinking that the antenna adaptor would be fitted with a pre-amp, splitting the output into AM frequencies and VHF/DAB frequencies which would then connect into the two sockets on the back of the radio.  DAB frequencies are about 200MHz if I remember correctly,

What type of adaptor were you referring to ?

Sorry for the late reply been mega busy and for some reason I am not receiving replies anyway by adapter I mean cable sorry .I have got it all sorted and working DAB,FM all I have to do now is get and sort out the bluetooth.With the radio coming out of a kuga any idea if I will need a bluetooth module from a kuga or would another ford fit ? I didn't need a pre-amp  or a different aerial so, so far so good, I did read somewhere the sony radio has its own power for the dab so do not need a pre-amp splitter for the Ariel

Good to hear all working.

I'm an old fogey that sticks to CDs, I'm not really into bluetooth/MP3 !

Keep the shiny side up!
