I'd get a meter in there, if it's a bare wire anyways.
please let us know what you find
the PBR300x2 did state some software improvements in March 2012
an earlier post in elf amp days stated better to have the line converter fail than an amp or factory radio.
once the line converter is on there, I'd check the outputs, yes
not sure about the remote wire, though, if you need one, I think you do.
the turn on voltage dial can be swept from 4-6v
sometimes it doesn't work, as with my DSX-310, is supposed to have 4v output RCA's, so switiching from the MS60 (2v) to the 310, I should have had to cut or remove the remote wire, but I still needed it.
no I didn't measure the RCA outputs, but I might next time if I remember.
with the line converter I would, since it has voltage attenuator, you can
also go back and tweak by ear, like a biassing a preamp, just don't get too fancy. your best setting will be shades away from 4.5v if I'm understanding
the concept correctly.
basically with that amp, it's that amps choice whether it needs the remote wire, up to a point.
sounds like you have all your ducks in a row, hope everything goes smoothly for you.
