Installation of Parrot hands free car kit - bluetooth

I purchased a parrot ck3100 from best buy and had them install it on Saturday. The hour and a half appointment took 7 hours and the kit does not mute the radio during a call. I have a 2005 BMW 325i with the factory amp in the trunk. There are 3 speakers in each front door and 1 of them does mute properly the tweeter and midrange do not turn off. Does anyone have a suggestions?????

the Parrot unit has a mute cable.
It also has its own 2x 11w amp to power phone communications through existing car speakers.

Two ways to handle this and really all u need to hook up are two sets of the speaker wires to the right speakers orange and red are one set blue and green are another but u need to use a relay to interupt the ignition wire behind the radio or the anp turn on at the amp to disconect the rest of the speakers when u get a call ide just have them run the wires to the amp it is easyer in my opinion

In the parrot kits I've seen, they insert a relay to switch the audio to the phone. This only works with 2 speakers generally. Your vehicle either has dedicated amp channels for each of the 3 speakers/door or the installer tapped into the wrong point. If it has individual amps for each speaker, they may need to force the amp to shut off to get it to mute the audio.

What size fuse do I need on the power cord from the battery to the amp? thanks


It depends on the size of the amp. The best route to take is to purchase an amp installation that includes the power and ground cables, RCAs,remote turn on wire and...fuse holder with fuse. You choose the amp kit base upon wattage ofthe amp and they come in 0,4 and 8 gauge sizes.

The best way is to get a stereo installation kit designed for your car. It will have the surround for the new stereo to fit where the stock stereo fit. Also, it comes with a wiring harness that you connect the new stereo to then it plugs in to the stock radio plug. Most local automotive stereo stores should carry them.

Installing The Subwoofers to the amp... etc.


You should go with a 4 guage power wire kit. If your amp is going in and out
at high volume than that is your problem. 8 guage will work but, if you want
the proper current which is your power from your battery, going to your amp
than I would recomend the 4 guage amp install kit or just the main power
wire coming from your battery. If you would like contact me and I will send you
to a very good sight with all the info you will ever need for car amplifire installation.

Buy an amp wiring kit. The battery cable goes to the battery (duh, right?) with the fuse within 18 inches of the battery. The ground gets bolted to a clean section of the car chassis/body. the remote lead goes to the radio's remote out (blue/white stripe). the rca cable goes to the radio's Sub/rear RCA outputs. Speaker wires go the speakers. Done!
