Radar Install Issue-'03 K1200LTE-Help Please

I bought a 2003 K1200LTE with the "BMW Professional 2000 Audiosystem." I've installed a Escort Passport 8500 X50 Radar detector. I have the power cord run thru the handlebar to the unit, which is mounted just above the left handlegrip. I need advice on how to get the audible alert signal to my helmet (wired headset). I'd like to have radar alerts over-ride all other audio (highest priority). I spoke to a technician at Escort, and he thinks there may be an impedance problem. I don't need the alerts through the speakers. I'll have my BMW dealer do the install, but they don't have a clue about the Escort. Is there a part I need to buy, or can I connect with just a mini-jack plug? Attached is a picture of my audio system.
