Factory Amplifier Replacement Interface: The Maestro AR (ADS-MAR) from
iDatalink is a factory amplifier replacement interface module for select Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep, Ram, and Ford vehicles. It enables the seamless integration of Kenwood's XR600-6DSP amplifier (sold separately) while retaining the vehicle's factory radio.
Proprietary 4-Pin Cable (Included): The included proprietary 4-pin harness
connects the iDatalink Maestro AR module to the Kenwood XR600-6DSP
amplifier. The harness sends the volume, fader, and balance commands
from the factory radio through the Maestro AR to the amplifier.
Vehicle Specific harness (Sold Separately): A vehicle specific T-harness
(HRN-AR-CH2, HRN-AR-CH3, HRN-AR-CH4, HRN-AR-FO2, HRN-AR-F03,
HRN-AR-TO1, HRN-AR-TO2, HRN-AR-TO3; sold separately) will also be
required. The vehicle specific T-harness plugs between the vehicle's factory
wiring, the Maestro AR module, and the Kenwood XR600-6DSP amp.
The harness carries the audio and data signals from the factory radio
through the Maestro AR, to the amplifier.
Note: The Maestro AR (ADS-MAR) from iDatalink must be used with the
Kenwood's XR600-6DSP amplifier in conjunction with a vehicle specific
T-harness (sold separately). It is not currently compatible with any other amplifier.

firmware before installation. The included USB cable plugs into your Windows PC and
