I am no help with your question, sorry. . . But I wanted to present a second option for you, this is what I am doing :
http://www.amazon.com/iSimple-IS77-Univ ... ingdocs-20

This gives you a USB charging plug, a 3.5mm input port for ANY MP3 or XM radio or ______ you want to use, and can be mounted many different ways. I am gonna mount mine in the left hand fairing pocket, and for the input, use a Blue-tooth receiver I found
( http://www.crutchfield.com/p_13691126/J ... 345&awdv=c )
That is NOT the one I am going to use, but same idea, mine has a 3.5mm plug instead of the RCA outputs.

I can understand that, I just handed my mechanic $1050.00 for some paint work, plus just purchased a $850.00 Corbin saddle, so yeah, I understand ! LOL I had planned on new speakers and a custom headhunt, but that didn't happen this year, maybe next.

In the DIY section, there is a good one that covers this. I cant remember which yr it shows, but I've done it to a '93 SE and a '95 Aspy with no problems.
Solder to the positive legs of the caps for L and R channels. The ground can be to any ground solder joint but the pics show a good one also.

As for a ground loop isolated, no idea without thinking a bunch, and Im at work so slim chance of that. Lol. I did not need it as I was only after mp3 input.

Not sure if the Edsets adapters allow for xm input or not, but they do work for mp3/phone input. Plugs in-line at your headset cord, accepts 3.5mm plug from device. $65 for a little adapter tho....
