Jbl ms-8

Anyone using this? I wanted to know if this can be used with an intravee for iPod/iPhone integration. I know it has an aux in but I would not want to have the control screen out in the open. I would prefer to control he iPod from the mkiv

Hi

The MS-8 is a sound processor, and the Intravee2 is an iPod interface (amongst lots of other functions) which allows you to control an iPod via the oem head unit. The JBL's control unit/screen is for control of the sound processor only, it can't control the iPod.

There's a few E39 M5 owners using the JBL unit, have a read through some of the posts by ben5 for instance to learn more about using them. The JBL will connect to the 'outputs' of your oem amplifier. The Intravee connects to the wiring where the oem CD changer is/was.

Cheers, Dennis!

i have the ms-8 in mine and an ipod interface in place of the standard cd changer, my car was originally a dsp car so i had the dsp adapter for the ipod interface, i have removed this and purchased the analogue bm24/54 to cdchanger cable and plugged that in. job done.

as you mentioned the ms8 also has an aux input.

another point to mention is the BT, if the car has factory bluetooth installed you will need to rewire the speakers.

Is there a way to use the mkiv to display video from iPod/phone/pad. I saw the thread about using Apple TV but the pic quality seemed pretty shitty.

That is the issue that I am having. I have no BT voice, so what does "rewire the speakers" entail? Thanks.
