I want to put my Sony head unit I have in my 1995 C 280 with the stock 8 speaker Bose system. I never could get a straight answer about this though. I am wonder whether I need a signal adjuster, such as one that a company like Soundgate makes, or can I just get the VW/Audi harness and be done with it?

Sheesh... STRAIGHT ANSWER (I've answered this many times I think):

Get a VW/Audi harness. Wire in TWO stereo line level converters. You're done.

OR (if your head unit has high power preamp outputs, like the 4V ones out these days):

Get a VW/Audi harness. Hook the PREAMP OUTPUTS from the Sony deck to the SPEAKER WIRES on the ISO (VW/Audi) harness. You're done.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE... don't ask this again. [:)]
(I'll give you a nickel!)

I won't ask again, I promise! Thanks Scorchie, I know this stuff gets annoying, but I did searches and found only confusion cause the answers don't come in sucession, so you have to read an entire three threads to get a convoluted answer on this subject. Know I can just debate over whether I should do it with myself![:D]

Do it yourself! With the right stuff out there these days, it's pretty simple. It's not the horror story that most audio installers would have you believe.

GOod luck!
