    Default o5 to 03 convert

    I asked our radio shop about converting an XTL 500 05 remote head radio to an 03 head radio. They stated that some mods needed to be made to the actual trunk unit. I'm not buying it, anyone able to confirm? I do agree that a new remote cable needs to be purchased, but not a mod to the radio itself. The radio has a DB25 connection, a USB, and two "blue" cable connections.

    model number M20KTS9PW1AN
    flash (not that it matters) 500208-001480-6
    SN 585CGBxxx

    No mod has to be done to the drawer. The cable to the O3 head is different but that is all. Seeing that it is a high power you would need the large accessory cable (db25) or roll your own for speaker and ignition connections.
