Hey,

Just wondering if anyone is using the Factory Auxiliary Booster Kit for their AUX input.
I was going to buy one from Ford but was wondering if the unit that ASL have is better (apart from the obvious volume adjustment)?
I can get the Ford one cheaper. Does anyone know? Has anyone tried both?
Cheers

So i decided to get the Ford auxiliary booster off ebay (from Knox Ford if anyone is interested, they still have them).
I borrowed the dB meter from work and ran a check before installing it.
Obviously i used the same song and the same volume on the CD and AUX (without booster) and got:
CD: peak 93.5bDA
AUX peak 87.1dbA
5dBA is quite a difference seeing tho dB is not linear.

Put the unit in and got:
CD: peak 93.5dBA
AUX peak 93.1dBA

It was slightly loader on the AUX but i turned the iPod down a little to get it the same volume.

Im happy. Hopefully this helps someone out in the future.
