Thanks Ben, as I stated I already did that. The fader knob has no wires going to it at all. I was told previously that the fader knob being included in the realm of non-OEM units can create all sorts of fubar stuff. Any other ideas? Any ideas for what to replace the speakers with? Would like some input from those who upgraded their late model 528e's...
El Pres! thanks as well. if there was such a draw as you state and that certainly sounds like a viable possibility then the question comes to my mind first that wouldn't the same sound loss occur when I flashed my brights (you know without having the headlights or running-lights)???
Someone else suggested that maybe the older cars just aren't set up to handle the power configurations of today's newer head units. Their suggestion was to add a separate amplifier and see if that works but while I agree that might just work it doesn't sound like the true answer to the real problem...
Gosh I hate electrical problems!!
ghead I'm a mechanically inclined person. Moving parts are governed by common sense therefore common sense applied to mechanical issues usually are a lot easier for me to figure out... My "old school" audiophile tactics just cut it these days
Anywho, thanks guys!....anyone else wanna chip in their $.02 worth?
Still takin a poll on replacement speakers that you guys have put in your 528e!!
