Default Replacing Head Unit with Tablet Wiring?

Im doing the workshop 12 install on my non nav bose sysytem. So I am replacing the head unit with a Galaxy Tab A and retaining my bose amp and speakers. How would I go about getting audio from the Aux to the speakers? Ive got literally 5 different answers from different people. Workshop 12 had a write up but wasnt specifically for the 370Z. Any help would be appreciated.

Have you searched how to connect a PAC transformer to the 370Z Bose amplifier and/or how to set it up with RCA inputs? Forum member "bigaudiofanat" would probably be your best bet if you haven't already contacted Workshop12.. they're pretty responsive on FB messenger

I called PAC-Audio 3 times and spoke to 3 different people with mixed answers. 2 of them said I dont need the PAC transformer for some reason. I also called crutchfield and they said the PAC is needed along with an external radio like a Pioneer MVH hidden somewhere with the tablets aux plugged into the radio. I dont want to keep ordering parts that I dont need.

I already asked bigaudiofanat and im still getting mixed answers
This is what he said

"Alright, the only reason you would need a DSP, LOC, PAC, or other is if you were keeping the stock head unit and installing new amps and speakers.

You need to make sure though that your Voltage out of your headphone jack is at least 4 Volts otherwise your sound is going to be very quiet. You might need to get a Pre out voltage booster to increase the voltage to the bose amp. "

While workshop 12 is saying the PAC is needed

I guess its going to have to be trial and error
