As long as both of these requirements are met, Drive + Play can be easily added to virtually any mobile audio system for total control of your iPod.
Drive + Play includes the following components and parts: Text Display With Universal Mounting Base and Attached Cable (3m) Control Knob With 30 Mounting Base and Attached Cable (3m) Electronics Enclosure (the Brain) 12-Volt Accessory Power Cable (2m) With Cigarette Lighter Adaptor 12-Volt Power Harness (0.5m) With In-Line Fuse Holder (for direct connection to the vehicles electrical system) Line Out Cable (1.6m): Stereo 3.5mm (M) Plug to L/R RCA (M) Plugs iPod Cable (3m): 8-Pin Mini DIN (M) Plug to iPod Dock Connector (2) Control Knob Bases: 0 and 60 (2) Mounting Plates for Knob Base and Display Base (10) Mounting Screws: (3) Knob Base, (3) Display Base and (4) Electronics Enclosure (6) Cable Ties, Black (2) Hex Keys: 3mm and 1.5mm (2) Adhesive Mounting Pads (2) Alcohol Prep Pads Warranty Card Drive + Play Components Drive + Play consists of three main components: Text Display, Control Knob and Electronics Enclosure. They operate together as a system to make controlling your iPod easy, and to route the audio signal to your mobile audio system. All three components must be installed. You can choose wireless FM transmission, wired FM transmission (adaptor sold separately), or direct connection of the line-output audio signal for the audio interface. Text Display Location The Text Display shows current iPod information and is similar to the display on your iPod. It comes with a three-position pivot arm for virtually limitless viewing adjustment. You can install the unit in a variety of locations, as long as the proposed site offers a direct view of the display. For easiest viewing, mount the unit near other instrument-panel gauges or on top of the dashboard. Control Knob Location The Control Knob allows you to control the iPod much like the iPod Click Wheel. The unit comes with three interchangeable bases so you can choose the most comfortable operation angle. Ideally, you should install the Control Knob in a location that provides comfortable access while driving where you can easily feel and operate it without taking your eyes off the road.
Choosing Installation Locations
IMPORTANT: Drive + Play should be installed according to these instructions and relevant regulations. No part of this system should obstruct the drivers view of the road or vehicle controls or information displays necessary for safely operating the vehicle. The text display should be positioned to eliminate glare and reflections, and should be as close as possible to the drivers normal line of sight.

Tools and Precautions
To install Drive + Play components, we recommend using the following tools: Electric or cordless drill with drill bit set Phillips screwdriver set Pencil Protective eyewear
Before starting the installation, please observe the following precautions: Turn off all audio system power, including the iPod, before making any connections. Always wear protective eyewear when using tools.
continued on next page.
Choosing Installation Locations (continued)
Electronics Enclosure Location The Electronics Enclosure contains the wireless FM transmitter and the power supply for the three components. You can install it under a seat, in the center console compartment, or in the glove box. If possible, select a site that provides both convenient access to the enclosure and easy cable routing. Drive + Play also provides an audio interface to a cell phone, satellite radio, or any other device that outputs a low-level audio signal using the Aux In jack. When using the Auxiliary Input feature, select a mounting site for the electronics enclosure that provides easy access to the Aux In jack. Otherwise, you will need to purchase a 3.5mm stereo extension cable for a longer cable run (see Wiring Diagram on page 5). iPod Location With this system, you can place your iPod in any location that allows you to conveniently connect it to the Drive + Play iPod cable. Since you dont have to view the iPod or use its controls, you can place it inside the center console compartment, the glove box, or another hidden site.
Wireless FM Transmission This method is the most convenient and requires the least wiring. After setup, you simply tune your radio to the assigned FM frequency to listen to your iPod. Drive + Play has a built-in FM transmitter and its software provides a choice of five fixed FM frequencies or a tunable frequency for areas where none of the fixed frequency selections are available. See Initial Setup on page 9 for details. Wired FM Transmission For better quality FM transmission performance, consider purchasing our Wired FM Adaptor for direct connection (via the Antenna jack on the Electronics Enclosure) to your radios antenna input (see Wiring Diagram on the next page).
NOTE: Depending on your vehicle model, antenna plug adaptors may be required to connect the Wired FM Adaptor to your radio and antenna.
Connecting to Audio Out This method provides the best sound quality, but involves more wiring. After making the connections and setup, you will select Auxiliary Input or CD Changer on your audio system to listen to your iPod. See Initial Setup on page 9 for details.
NOTE: Since an iPod can get hot during operation, avoid tightly enclosed areas. Review About Operating and Storage Temperatures in your iPods Users Guide.
Planning the Installation
IMPORTANT: When routing wires from any of the components to the electronics enclosure, be sure to route them away from any moving parts such as the gear-shift levers, pedals, parking brake and steering column.
Temporarily place the main components at their proposed sites and lay out their interconnect cables to judge the cable routes (see Wiring Diagram on page 5 for wiring options). If a cable comes up short, try moving one or more components to find a better run. Next, inspect the vehicles interior assembly and locate areas where cables can be hidden or tucked into seams (e.g., under the center console housing, along body panel, etc.). Once you have found the ideal cable runs and component locations, mark the sites with a pencil and continue with the installation.
NOTE: In order to use the Audio Out, your audio system must have an auxiliary input jack or a CD changer input. A thirdparty interface is required for a CD changer interface. If your system has neither feature, FM transmission is the only choice for the audio interface.
Choosing a Power Interface
Referring to the Wiring Diagram on the next page, you can connect Drive + Plays power connections to your vehicles electrical system in one of two ways: Removable 12-Volt Accessory Power Cable With Cigarette Lighter Adaptor This power interface is the most convenient, since the power cable can be simply plugged into the vehicles cigarette lighter outlet. No additional wiring is required. The cigarette lighter adaptor is fuse-protected, and the fuse can be changed by removing the adaptors end nut.
Choosing an Audio Interface
Referring to the Wiring Diagram on the next page, you can interface the Drive + Plays audio output to your mobile audio system in three ways:
NOTE: If your cigarette lighter works even when the cars ignition switch is in the off position, youll have to turn Drive + Play on manually. It can be turned off manually, or it will shut off automatically after one hour of inactivity.

Important Safety and Installation Information
Low-voltage wiring systems must be properly installed to minimize the possibility of accidental contact with hazardous power and lighting wiring. Never place remote control wiring near bare power wires or lightning rods, antennas, transformers, steam or hot water pipes, or heating ducts. Never run low voltage wire in any conduit, box, channel, duct or other enclosure containing power or lighting circuits of any type. In addition to ensuring proper separation between any AC power wiring and the Category 5/5e cable used for A-BUS, it is important to avoid running the A-BUS cable in parallel to any AC wiring. Always maintain at least the minimum separation between AC wiring and the A-BUS cable or ANY low-voltage cable that is required by the NEC or any applicable local building codes or regulations. Make sure to follow all instructions when preparing wiring for use with the AB 1 module. Failure to do so may result in a potential safety hazard, including possible danger to persons and/or equipment. If you will be running the cable through a ventilation plenum, remember to use plenum-rated cable to comply with NEC and other safety requirements. Failure to do so may result in a potential fire or safety hazard. Always observe the appropriate safety codes for concealed wiring. Be extremely careful not to cut through or drill into concealed wiring or pipes. Make a small inspection opening before cutting or drilling. Dust or dirt can cause special problems on wiring contacts. Be sure all contacts are clean, and that all parts are installed correctly to protect them from dust and dirt. Your new Harman Kardon AB 1 Amplified In-Wall Module has been custom-designed for use with Harman Kardons A-BUS/Ready products and it is also compatible with other A-BUS-compatible systems. Do not connect it to any other device. The AB 1 is only to be installed by qualified personnel and as per the requirements of all applicable state and local building codes, as well as NEC (National Electrical Code) requirements. Check with your local authorities as needed to ensure that all wiring inside walls is installed in compliance with the proper standards. Failure to do so may present a potential safety hazard. If you have any doubt about your ability to work with electrical and telecommunications wiring, you are advised to hire a professional licensed electrician or custom installer to install this product.
dimmer-controlled lighting, bright sunlight, and reflective surfaces such as mirrors or blank walls. You may wish to temporarily place the component to be controlled using the sensor in the proposed location in order to test the integrity of IR signals. When determining the specific location for an AB 1, keep in mind that it should be in a convenient place where it may be operated manually, or that, when it is used with a remote control, the mounting position enables the built-in IR sensor to see commands from any place in the room. In practice, the AB 1 may be mounted close to other wall switches, but remember that the AB 1 should NEVER be installed in the same gang box as any switch or product, such as a light switch or dimmer, where AC line voltage is present. When planning the installation, it is also wise to consider the distance from the AB 1 module to the speakers, particularly when they are in-wall or ceiling mounted. Be certain that there are no solid walls or load-bearing structures that would prevent the speaker wires from reaching their location. The wiring used to connect the AB 1 to the A-BUS/Ready receiver may be Category 5, 5e (or better) wiring. Be certain that any safety requirements mandating the use of plenum wiring are taken into account. The speaker wiring should also be in-wall rated as required, and may not exceed 14 AWG. To simplify wiring you may wish to use two-pair CL-3 rated in-wall wiring and run a single cable from the AB 1 to both locations. One pair will be used to connect the first speaker and the other will continue to the second speaker. Speaker Selection The AB 1 is compatible with most modern in-wall or ceiling speakers, provided that they have an efficiency rated at 88dB or greater. Minimum speaker impedance is six ohms. It is possible to run two pairs of speakers from one AB 1, but we do not recommend that due to the degradation in performance. What Is Included Your AB 1 in-wall module includes two mounting screws: selfstarting, universal-head machine screws. You are responsible for providing a Decora-style wall-plate, available in a variety of colors and finishes at your local hardware retailer. You are also responsible for providing the speakers and a sufficient length of Category 5/5e (or better) UTP (unshielded twisted pair) cable and an RJ-45 modular plug. The wiring scheme is the standard TIA T568A configuration. The maximum length should not exceed 150 feet in order to avoid degrading the signal. Further information on the correct wiring configuration is provided in these instructions.
Input Cable Connection Block Using standard IDT punch-down tools, connect the Category 5/5e cable linking the AB 1 to the receiver to this connection block in accordance with the color code printed on the circuit board. Output Level Trims These trim pots are used to match the output level of the AB 1 module to the specific speakers in use. Speaker Terminal Block The wire used to connect the AB 1 to your speakers is connected to this terminal block. Insert the wire in accordance with the color coding shown and then tighten the screw. Note that the maximum wire size is 14 AWG.
Installation and Connection
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTES: Before beginning the installation process, make certain that all electronic products in the system are turned off and disconnected from their A/V power connection. This avoids the possibility of accidental activation, which could possibly damage the equipment or cause personal injury. Do not turn on the equipment until instructed to do so. Be certain to observe all appropriate safety measures when installing any wiring, including, but not limited to, the use of eye protection when required, and attention to the required distances between low-voltage wiring and high-voltage AC mains wiring. Step One: Run a Category 5/5e cable from the receiver location to the module. Run a splice-free Category 5/5e cable from the location where the AB 1 module will be installed to the location where the A-BUS/Ready receiver is placed. At each end, make certain to leave sufficient wire for ease of installation. Any extra wire may be trimmed back during the installation. Remember that you will need to have access to the rear of the AB 1 after the module is connected, but before the module is secured into the wall box. Step Two: Prepare and install an RJ-45 plug at the receiver end of the system. The connection and cable termination at the receiver end of the installation is a standard RJ-45 connector using the TIA T568A configuration. Connect an RJ-45 plug to the end of the wire as follows. Looking at the connector with its clip down and the wires coming out of the connector toward you, numbered from left to right, the typical pin colors are as follows: Pin # Striped Wire Pairs White with Green Stripe Green White with Orange Stripe Blue White with Blue Stripe Orange White with Brown Stripe Brown Solid Wire Colors White Green White Blue White Orange White Brown

Once the AB 1 is properly connected and the levels have been set, operation is simple. In order to use the AB 1 module, the A-BUS/Ready receiver must be turned on and placed in the Multiroom mode. The procedure for doing this will vary from model to model, so we suggest that you consult the owners manual for your receiver for the correct instructions. As long as the receiver is powered up, and the Multiroom system is turned on, the AB 1s amplifier may be turned on by simply pointing the Zone II remote supplied with the unit, or any remote programmed with the proper Harman Kardon IR codes, at the AB 1s IR Sensor 4 and pressing the remotes Power On button. You may adjust the volume in the remote room by pressing the Volume Up/Down Buttons 3 on the AB 1 or with the volume control buttons on the remote. The remote may also be used to operate the receiver to change sources and make other adjustments, such as changing the station on the tuner. When the proper IR codes are programmed in the remote being used, you may also operate compatible source components, such as CD or DVD players, that are connected to the IR remote output jack on the receiver. To turn the remote room feed off, press the OFF button on the Zone II or other properly programmed remote.

Step Three: Connect the Category 5/5e cable to the AB 1. Once the wire is run to the remote location where the AB 1 will be installed, connect the Category 5/5e cable to the AB 1. Prior to making the connections, strip the outer jacket of the Cat. 5/5e cable 1-1/2" to 2" from the end, taking care not to nick the inner conductors. Next, separate the four twisted pairs within the cable and then untwist the ends of each pair about 1/2." All terminations are made at the Input Cable Connection Block. Connect the wires using standard Insulation Displacement Terminal (IDT) tools and procedures. DO NOT use screwdrivers to insert the wire into the IDT connection points. Also, take special care to make certain that there are no shorts between any of the individual wires, as this may cause damage to the AB 1. From left to right, the connections are made as follows:
Step Six: Adjust the output levels. This step sets the level adjustments for the AB 1. Once this process is complete, all further volume settings are made with the Volume Up/Down Buttons 3 on the AB 1, the Zone II remote, or an optional third-party remote that is programmed for Harman Kardon products. With the Multiroom system activated and a source playing, press the Volume Up Button 3 for 20 seconds so that the AB 1s volume is set at its maximum. Next, adjust each of the Output Level Trims until the output begins to clip. At this point, back the trim control down in the opposite direction until the clipping stops. This is the correct level for your specific A-BUS/ Ready receiver and AB 1. Before proceeding further, lower the volume back to normal listening level using the Volume Down Button 3.
Note that one wire in each pair is always a solid color, and the other is either white or striped. Make sure that the twisted pairs of wires consist of those attached to pins 1 and 2, pins 3 and 6, pins 4 and 5, and pins 7 and 8. When making the connections at each end of the cable, strip the outer insulation jacket about 1-1/2" to 2" from the end. The cable is constructed of four twisted pairs of wires as indicated above. Flatten the wire ends to prepare them for insertion into the connector. Fully insert the wire into the connector, being certain to check the color codes of the pin assignments one last time. Carefully crimp the connector, making sure that each wire is securely fastened.
Step Five: Connecting the AB 1 to the A-BUS/Ready product. To set the output trims, the AB 1 must first be connected to the A-BUS/Ready receiver. After first checking to make certain that the connections to the speaker cable and Cat. 5/5e cable have properly been made, plug the RJ-45 jack at the receiver end of the cable into the A-BUS jack on the back of the A-BUS/Ready receiver. Next, turn on the receiver and make any adjustments required to turn on the Multiroom system and send an active source to the output. As a confirmation that the connections have been made and that receiver is on, the Status LED 5 will light up. So that the level adjustments are as accurate as possible, select a program source or music type that is representative of what will most often be listened to in the room where the A-BUS module will be installed.
Attach a Decora-style wall plate (not included) through the AB 1s Screw Holes 1. Although any color Decora wall plate may be used with the AB 1, the AB 1 itself should not be painted.
Other notes on using the AB 1 and other A-BUS products with Harman Kardon A-BUS/Ready receivers: When using the AB 1 with Harman Kardon A-BUS/Ready products, you may connect only one AB 1 at a time unless optional, external A-BUS-powered hub equipment is used. If A-BUS keypads or other A-BUS accessories not specifically designed for use with Harman Kardon products are used, their operation may be slightly different than with the AB 1.
