my new panasonic deck came with a DC/DC converter...not a clue what it is for, its a little silver box with a secondary wiring harness that runs to it...its easy to unplug but the manual said to only install the converter with the aid of a professional...what is it for and should i install it?

It is a noise 'elimination' device, it should prevent the Panasonic from ever being the source of any noise in your system. This is usually only found on the better head units. [img]graemlins/thumb.gif[/img]


Noise is like an intelligent germ, as soon as you find one way of stopping it, it adapts and finds new ways to infuriate the owner.
