Sorry, that just does not make sense! 

 

You can't want one and not know what it's for!

 

You only need a breakout box if you want to use the PXA-H100 processor.

Guys, 

 

my configuration is like this right now:

I've just found Alpine Pxa-H100 and I want to connect it to my setup (I dont have DSP in my car)

What I have to do? I Have Bm54 with RCA outputs (made). What should be a correct connection of PXA to my setup ?

Sorry for the late reply.

 

I can make up a breakout box for you, the price is £20 + postage and packing (£10 for Special Delivery or international, £5 for Recorded).

 

Send me a PM and I'll give you payment details if you want one.

OK, so I just need to send my BM54 to Baris to fit the RCA leads. Baris does 2 or 4 RCAs but as I'm connecting into the BoB I presume there's no benefit in going with 4 RCAs as only the front channels plug into the BoB - is that right?

 

Planning to connect the RCA feeds from the PXA-H100 into one or 2 amps.

You are correct, the H100 only has two channel input, so no need for 4 outputs.

 

I have made up the box today, so it’s ready whenever you want it.

Guys, does PXA H100 needs power in this combo ?  I mean do I have to connect it to power supply ? If yes, where do You plug it in Your car ?

Yes, it needs permanent live and should be grounded too (although the AI-Net cable will do it).  Lots of sources for that, let me know if you can't find a handy one.

But if I connect it for example to battery, wouldnt it drain it when car is off? 

 

Could You give me some tips about what is the best way to connect it in e39?

The current drain is microscopic when not powered up over AI-Net, it won't drain your battery.

 

You can connect to the iBus power connector to the Intravee, use the centre pin which should have a red wire with green stripe.  You can also use the connector to the radio module,  also red with green stripe, Pin 15 for flat pin, Pin 9 for round pin.
