    Hello,
    we have a bmw 116i but now we want to connect a remote cable to the radio because we have a subwoofer. Can someone tell me how we can take the radio out of the dashboard and connect a remote cable from the subwoofer to the radio?
    And im not so good at speaking and reading german :cry:

    I hope someone can explain me how to do this

    There is no pre-amp output on the OEM radio. To connect a subwoofer or an external amp you have to use a high-low converter connected to the (rear) loudspeaker cable.
    Neither is there a remote switch output (for antennas or for switching the amp on and off). You have to use some other ignition-controlled output for that (cigarette lighter), or you use a high-low converter with an integrated remote signal generator.

    Take a look at some of these pictures : http://www.babybmw.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=7285

    It comes with another topic but you'll see that it is not so hard to remove the titan cover. Under the cover you will find 2 screws. You need to remove these screws also so that you can take both hands and grab the cover around the function carrier center with the seat heating included. After removing this part you'll see the screws for the radio.

    In addition to "striker118's" post, I would suggest that you take a look at the Helix AAC converter or the XETEC USC High Low converter. These 2 come with an integrated remote signal generator!

    Which radio do you have ?

    Business or Professional ?


    For better understanding : do you have an active-sub with an amplifier included to the box ?

    There is no reason to run a cable from the front to the trunk, since you'll buy the adapters postet above. They generate a remote-signal to a cable when the cable for the speakers gets the audio-signal from the radio.

    We have a business radio.
    Next question, how can we reach the sigaret lighter to reach the cable to connect the remote to?

    we dont have an active sub but an amplifier with a subwoofer, but this is installed already with an high low adapter everything works but we only have to connect it with the remote

    Well I would get the signal from the black cable which is in the radioplug! Then run it through the drivers foot room, through the cable-channel to the trunk. When you decide to get it from the cigarette-lighter then run it from the center console, under the floor mat behind the armrest down the back seat into the trunk. You'll find the wiring under the leather-covering from the shift-knob - Klick. The disadvantage of splitting the signal from the cig.lighter is, that the amplifier shuts down when you press the "Stop"-button to stop the engine. The cigarette-lighter runs only with the ignition. It would be much better getting the remote-signal from the radio because the radio is not linked to the ignition, since you have opened the whole thing already. Another advantage is that everything will be turned off at the same time.

    we are going to try it tomorrow with the black cable, are there any risks ? If everyone says its the black cable to connect the remote then it can't go wrong i think? i mean crashing the computer in the car or something ..

    not unless you take the right cable - for your safety use a multimeter and measure the voltage.
