Q
How much current does this booster draw? The remote turn on wire from my head unit is good up to 300 milliamps. I was also wanting to use my remote turn on wire for 2 amplifiers.

We don't have the exact measurement but you should be fine with 300 mA. The antenna is not going to draw more than 50 mA in all likelihood. If you have a mulit-meter you can test it though.

I'm purchasing the Alpine ILX-W650 to install in my 2015 Chev Sonic. Do I need to purchase the antenna adaptor in order to use my OEM antenna?

Hi Roger, thanks for your question! You will need to use the Metra Antenna adapter (40-EU55), in order to retain the use of your OEM antenna and AM / FM radio frequencies. Chat with an Advisor online or by phone at 1-800-324-9695, if we can help!
