I am about to go through the process of installing a new pioneer head unit (avh-x3500bhs) and I have been reading about the install process for the PAC-TATO. From the tato instructions:
Note: BEFORE REMOVING THE FACTORY RADIO: BALANCE AND FADE IT TO THE CENTER, TURN THE RADIO UP TO AT LEAST 3/4 VOLUME, TURN THE RADIO OFF, TURN THE IGNITION OFF & THEN PROCEED WITH REMOVING THE FACTORY RADIO
I assume this is because the JBL amps are smart and need to be set at a certain volume before the JBL head unit is removed from the equation.
The problem is that my JBL head unit failed and when it did, the volume was nowhere near the 3/4 volume level. Is there any way to correct this prior to installation of a new head unit or am I poked?
Thanks for any help,
