Radio / Amplifier

The crossfire is fitted with a Becker radio, based on the Becker DTM High Speed. The speakers on the non-Base models are powered by an additional Infinity Amplifier.


MOST/D2B yellow connection cap

The radio itself seems to be based on the Becker Monza, and has all 3 connectors (A, B, C), although connector C is not used. Another spot for a MOST/D2B (Mercedes) connection can be found, but no fiber optics are installed (sometimes).

Some models do seem to include a MOST/D2B connection, as shown below.

The NAV model has an additional C/C button, that is used for the CD Changer, a function that was never shipped with the crossfire. You can find documentation about the CD changer and installation here : . However, there are other variants that have a DTM button instead.

Part numbers

The Becker "ZH 29" type might refer to the Chrysler naming of the Coupe model, ZH29.

4-channel configuration

As shown above, the amplifier does have 4 channels. However, the B connector on the Becker radio only wires the Front channels. Amplifier wiring.png

It is possible to pull 4 new wires for the rear speakers to the headunit, by cutting the following wires on the Power Amplifier A connector: 10 (RR+, yellow) 9 (RR-, yellow/violet) 8 (RL+, blue) 3 (RL-, blue/brown). Then, wire these to the radio on either RCA jacks or into the Radio B connector using "ISO radio connector pins".
