Keep the factory radio and add music from your phone?

This is the place to kick a few tires, drink a few beers, and tell a few tales.

Since this looks like its back from the dead is there any more progress on this setup Bill? I would be very interested for my car! Also I can think of a couple other uses for it too! I am missing a factory radio but I have no desire to add one to actually use. I would put one back to fill the hole and run your setup to actually use to power speakers.

I am still working on this. We came a cross a very odd problem. The output power measures well on the bench but when we run a live speaker load it just doesn't play as loud as we would like. The chip manufacturer is working on a solution. In hind sight, this is like expecting the new version of Windows to work the first time out... We should have stuck with the established technology, accepted a bigger package size and been shipping product.
