Adding Bluetooth to Bose

7 posts in this topic

97 Eldorado with Bose system and trunk CD player.

While the trunk mounted CD player is nice, I prefer my Pandora and it links to our Audi Q5 via Bluetooth and my Galaxy S5.

There must be analog audio channel lines from the CD player to the head unit in the console.

If I could tap those audio lines I could put a Bluetooth adapter in line.

Any ideas or CD player schematics would be appreciated. Thx

I had in my older Deville an adapter that connect to my CD changer input. It basically made that an aux input. From there you could use a 3.5mm Jack to input or a Bluetooth adapter that puts out to 3.5mm

PIE made the adapter. Think it was a model GM10-AUX .

Think that'll do what you want

I inquired at my local car audio shop and they were not sure if PIE still makes that adapter.. But Pac Audi makes adapters. And they make a Bluetooth adapter for the Eldorado that has Bluetooth streaming music support. Here is a link to to Pac audio website for the Eldorado and what products they make http://pac-audio.com/productSearch.aspx?Make=Cadillac&MakeId=37&Model=El%20Dorado&ModelId=1570&Year=1997&YearId=8

There is a wired adapter the PDX box and wiring connector for the CD changer input that's about $90. But I saw a neat looking Bluetooth adapter that does phone calls and music streaming that can be hook up through a aux input or it connects inline with the radio antenna to play through a radio station. I've had bad luck with the style that plugs into power port and transmits. I always seem to get static. But I can help but to think an amplified signal that is sent to radio by having the antenna plug into the module would most likely give positive results. But for $150 I don't want to be the tester.http://pac-audio.com/productDetails.aspx?ProductId=1195&CategoryID=55

If your car has a cassette player there are cassette adapters now that stream Bluetooth. I forgot about those. I got one at best buy for $25. It works great. Downside is it only last about 6-8 hours till I need to recharge it. Just used a micro usb like my phone. Actually Wal-Mart had Same one less than $20. Made by Ion it's a ITR20.
