Hi all,

I'm just about to start installing my new Caliber's 2 DIN head unit to my 159 2.2 JTS. I have the following steering wheel control adapter (Connect2 CTSAR002.2 control interface) as shown in the picture below. The two black ISO connectors for the speakers, 12V power, ground etc are just fine and suitable for the car but what should be done for the blue wire in the picture that is coming from the steering wheel adapter's ISO plugs (instructions say that it's "Amp remote" plug, on the right hand side in the picture, near the head unit). Where should I connect this? I thought that this adapter should have been just plug&play but apparently it's not that straightforward. Should I search for 12 V Acc power in the car? As this seems to be providing power to Bose amplifier for the subwoofer, I wonder how this wire should be installed to get it working properly and without damaging the head unit or the amplifier... Sorry for the stupid question and thanks in advance!

That is the 12v aerial amp supply usually,if memory serves from when I fitted my pioneer I had to use a VW aerial adaptor and use that wire to power it as aerial amp is fed down the coax lead.
One of these but with male din to HU and female ISO to connect to coax in car.

Thanks for quick reply! So basically exactly like this:

And this blue wire in the antenna adapter would then be connected to the another blue wire in the Connect2 steering wheel adapter in order to provide electricity to Bose amplifier. Sounds good, will try that!
