Hello werkz - first timer alert...
My car is a 525i sport touring, nov '02 with about 38k miles on the clock. I'm pretty happy with it...
I need some help with my sub install... I'm replacing most of the audio components in the car - so i have 4 13cm component sets and i'm going to do the door midbass and tweeters in the front, the door tweeters in the rear and the roof midbass in the rear. Happy about doing that, not a problem.
I'm also going to do a DICE install, going to put the ipod in the tray under the centre armrest. Happy about that.
However, when it comes to the sub i'm more than a bit stuck. It's a BSW one, and their manual talks about taking wires from the amp... which I don't have. Apparently my amp is in the head unit or something. So I have some questions / options.
Option 1 - put the LOC in between the rear roof speakers, feed the sub from the line output of that.
Problems: i have no idea where the remote-on for the amp will come from. I also have no idea how I would go about taking the fuzzy felt from the roof off (is that called the headliner? sorry i'm not very technical when it comes to mechanical stuff)
Option 2 - splice the LOC in directly behind the head unit.
Problems: I don't know the best way to the back of the car from there, and i still don't know where i would get the remote-on for the amp from.
Option 3 - take it to a garage that i trust and get them to help.
Problems: Would cost money and make me feel like a failure.
Would rather avoid option 3...
Can anyone help me with this? Wiring diagrams or anything like that I can be pointed to would be very much appreciated.
