    Description

    The Saab infotainment system is available with single CD or CD changer. It is prepared for installation of a telephone.

    The audio system is available in three levels: Premium 70, Premium 150 Prestige 300 or Bose®. See the overview above for the content of the various systems.

    All infotainment systems use the SID unit to display selected functions. Some functions can be controlled via the steering wheel buttons.

    Antenna
    4D: The heating element on the rear window acts as an FM receiver while AM reception is provided by two separate wires in the rear window. For improved FM reception, the car can also be fitted with a diversity antenna integrated in the AM antenna. An antenna amplifier amplifies and sends the antenna signal to the EHU.

    5D: The antennas for radio reception are integrated in the rear side windows. The AM/FM antenna is located in the rear right side window and the FM antenna in the rear left side window. To amplify the antenna signal, one or two antenna amplifiers are fitted to transmit the amplified antenna signal to the main radio unit. The antenna amplifiers are located under
    the respective rear side window and are available in three versions, one for antenna system 1 and two for antenna system 2.

    CV: The radio antenna (FM/AM) is located on the right-hand side of the soft top cover. An antenna amplifier (624b) in the antenna base transmits antenna signals to the EHU via the bypass unit (624a) located at the right-hand A-pillar.

    Detailed description


    The entertainment head unit is mounted in the centre of the dashboard. The head unit receives audio and antenna signals from other units in the system. The signals are transmitted on from the unit's outputs to the speakers of the Premium 70 audio system and by I-bus to the amplifiers of the Premium 150, Prestige 300 and Bose® audio systems.

    The entertainment head unit is an FM/AM receiver with PLL double synthesis tuner for precise station setting, preset to various frequency bands depending on the market. The radio receiver has a memory, which makes it possible to retain selected stations even if battery power is lost. The CD player supports the mp3 format.

    The hardware is the same for all markets and is controlled by "end of line programming". If the unit is to be replaced, it must be programmed for the relevant market. Security access from TIS is required to "marry" and "divorce" the audio unit from the car.

    Control panel
    The control panel is used to select functions. See Audio system operation.

    Important
    In the service manual the normal handling of the audio system is not dealt with. Detailed information regarding handling can be found in the owner's manual.

    Steering wheel controls
    There are steering wheel controls for selecting preset stations (2), tuning (2) and volume
    control (1). The CIM converts the press of a button to a bus message that is received by the
    EHU, which carries out the instruction.

    Display
    The radio receiver uses the SID display to indicate the set station or other player information,
    such as CD.

    CD player
    The CD player is front loaded. The disc compartment holds one CD.

    The CD player is activated by loading a disc in the compartment or by pressing the CD AUX button if a disc is already loaded.

    Once all tracks have been played, the player begins playing the CD from the beginning again. The CD player is switched off with the ON/OFF button of the audio system or by selecting another audio source.

    The CD is ejected through a press on the EJECT button. If the ejected disc is not removed, the player draws the disc back in after about 10 s for reasons of safety.

    CD changer

    The CD changer is front loaded. The disc compartment holds six CDs.

    The CD changer is activated by loading one or more CD/MP3 discs into the compartment or by pressing the CD AUX button if a disc is already loaded. Press the LOAD button and follow the instructions on the display to load a disc.

    Once all tracks have been played, the player begins playing the CD from the beginning again. The CD changer is switched off with the ON/OFF button of the audio system or by selecting another audio source.

    The CD is ejected through a press on the EJECT button. If the ejected disc is not removed, the player draws the disc back in after about 10 s for reasons of safety.

    MP3 player
    The audio system can play MP3 files that have been recorded onto a CD-R disc with the following bit speed: 32-320 kbps. The sound quality may vary depending on the quality of the CD-R, recording method or quality of the recorded music. The audio system can read and play a maximum of 50 MP3 folders, 50 play lists, 10 sessions or 255 MP3 files. Discs containing more folders, play lists, sessions or files will be played up to the max. limit. Everything thereafter will be ignored.

    The MP3 player is activated by loading a CD-R disc with MP3 files in the disc compartment or by pressing the CD AUX button if a disc of MP3 files is already loaded.

    The MP3 player is switched off with the ON/OFF button of the audio system or by selecting another audio source.

    The MP3 disc is ejected through a press on the EJECT button. If the ejected disc is not removed, the player draws the disc back in after about 10 s for reasons of safety.

    Amplifiers and speakers, 4D
    The main entertainment unit has an integrated amplifier that drives the speakers of the Premium 70 sound system. The Premium 70 sound system has two speakers in the outer edges of the dashboard and two in the outer edges of the parcel shelf.

    The Premium 150 audio system also includes speakers in the front doors and a centre speaker in the dashboard. The amplifier drives all speakers and is mounted on the left side of the luggage compartment.

    The Bose® Centerpoint® Surround System also includes 2 speakers in the rear doors and two bass speakers in the outer edges of the parcel shelf. The amplifier has been replaced with a 10 channel amplifier which drives all speakers. The amplifier is mounted on the left-hand side of the luggage compartment.

    All speaker cables are twisted pairs. This makes them less sensitive to the induction of disturbances from other cables.
