I also have factory nav and aftermarket amps and components& sub.

So your head unit is completely stock?

I called Audio Control just to ask their opinion and the gentleman said the LCXX series is for after amp installs and would not recommend it for PRE HK amp installs. For that he said use the Matrix Plus or Overdrive Plus.

If you can check the pre-amp voltage that would be great.


Richard is all out of breakout boxes so it doesnt seem like Ill be able to use the PXA after all. I wish I asked about the breakout box before I purchased the PXA unit! lol

"Take the line-outputs from the BM53 or CD53. These are amplified as well, but you could never use them as speaker-level outputs, though they are 'full-range'"

If they arent speaker level, they must be closer to line level? I wonder if he knows the actual voltage....I assume would fluctuate with the volume knob?

I originally had an overdrive using the pre amp outs. It didn't work properly, I forget why. I think there was still a hiss.

Yes my BM53 is completely stock.

There are a couple guys on here who made their own break out boxes. If I can find their info I will PM it to you. Maybe they would be willing to make a breakout box for a small fee.

Also, If you decide not to use the PXA you probably won't need a LOC. Most later model JL Audio amps will take a balanced differential input which is what you have pre HK amp(I have read that the voltage is around 10-14 volts coming out of the BM53). Many members have done this with good results. Believe me, that is what I would do. But I do like having the PXA and I have had good results with the Imprint Auto tunes. There is a thread on diymobileaudio.com that tells you the best methods for mic placement to give you a proper tune.

damn, sure wish I had the proper knowledge to check it out and report back. I have a harbor freight voltage meter (unused lol) and would happily check if you point out which lines to tap into.

Yeah I wouldnt mind paying a small fee for the box. Richard is actively looking for someone to no avail.

The JL HD amp I have has these specs Input Voltage Range @ RCA Inputs Switchable from 200 mV - 2 V RMS to 800 mV - 8 V RMS

If thats the case, then it cant be 10-14 volts PRE HK amp as many people use JL amps straight with an RCA cable spliced into the wiring.

Is it possible to add a rearview camera that displays on the nav screen? From what Ive read you need a tv tuner but not sure if the Intravee supports it.

yes you can, but it's completely unrelated to the intravee. Just get the factory reverse camera kit. It automagically kicks in when you put the car in reverse and out when you stop.

Do our cars support it? I thought the euro versions had some sort of tv module that integrates with the camera.

The TV module is part of the kit. Neither euro or US cars came with it as standard.

The TT was an extra option (when ordered), but if ordered with nav there was a discount, so **most** cars in the UK that have oem nav also have the TV (as standard).

there is a small add on loom for cars that have nav only, and it allows the connection of the TV module.

Adding a Rev camera to a car with TV, is easy, its 3 wires (on the tv module), 2 wires to power the camera and the camera.

Unfortunately I dont have the TV. I tried searching for OEM parts but most are used from Ebay and Im not sure how complete it is or if its the correct item.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/181308331603...84.m1423.l2649

There was also a Navik unit on Ebay which isnt OEM

http://www.ebay.com/itm/261244445337...84.m1423.l2649

If you could help me with correct part numbers it may be easier to find.

Is this the loom?
