6 V Radio to 12 V upgrade with optional Bluetooth Price: $74.95
RADIO NOT INCLUDED.
The internal regulator modification is designed to power a 6 volt radio in a 12 volt electrical system.
The voltage regulator employs internal short circuit current limiting,
thermal shutdown and safe-area compensation, making it essentially indestructible.
Radios that have been previously connected to 12V with a resistor are not eligible for upgrade, due to the extensive damage.
Provides 7 volts to power the radio
The dial lamp is replaced with a 12 Volt bulb
Output voltage regulation 1% of output
Internal thermal overload protection
Internal short circuit current limiting
Battery voltage: 10.5 to 14.5 Volts
Output voltage: 7 Volts, +/- 5%
Operating temperature: -40° F to 120° F
Electrical system operating at 12 volts.
The radio is installed the same way as the original radio.

Modification service for your 6V (converted to 12V) or 12 Volt radio with an internal Bluetooth receiver. The external appearance of the radio remains 100% factory original.
Video of Bluetooth connection:
Bluetooth makes a radio capable of wirelessly playing music from your mobile Phone or other devices with Bluetooth. Available for 12 V system. The AM antenna is not required for Bluetooth operation.
RADIOS NOT ACCEPTED FOR MODIFICATION:
Radios that have been used with a “VOLTAGE REDUCER” will not be accepted for modification. I received a Sapphire III that failed after the owner used a voltage reducing resistor designed for a heater fan. The heater fan resistor is a one ohm resistor, which is fine for a 6 amp heater fan, but not a radio draws 1.1 amp. Used with a 6 Volt radio at 1.1 amp the voltage at the radio is 10.9 Volts or 1.1 Volt lower than the system voltage. Even if the resistor is 6 ohms the voltage would very as the speaker current changed with the music, which means a resistor will not provide the correct voltage to the radio. Additionally current fluctuations occur when the temperature varies causing the output transistor leakage current to change.
