Alright, here's a good one for the BMW audiophiles out there.
I had my Alpine CDA-7895 Head Unit installed at a Tweeter and they did a really good job. Only thing-I have the 8 speaker premium system in my 318, with the factory amp, so they had to add this piece onto the wiring to limit the amount of power from HU to the amp because of Alpine V-Drive technology (60x4 watts) possibly overloading the input of the factory amp. If I didn't use the limiter, then I would have lost the channels in my doors and I didn't want to do that. However...this process I realized, made my speakers continue to sound like crap, just like with the former underpowered crappy stock headunit.
What I want to do, is take all the input wires, and connect them to the output wires, bypassing the amp completely. This should allow me to keep all the channels and power ALL the speakers in my car, or something like that. I was just wondering if anyone thinks it is possible and also if someone could direct me in the color coding of all the speaker wire running all over my car. I would try amping the speakers separately, but that would just defeat the purpose of the V-drive in my HU. I realize this may be time consuming, but for good quality sound, I am willing to make that sacrifice. I am sick of the poor SQ in my car. This aggression will not stand, man!!!!
(name that movie)
I also figure I could have it all rewired, starting from the headunit, but using a crossover to keep the door channels in tact. I removed the rear tweeters as per replacing them with Infinity two-ways which actually sound bad right now due to the poor power situation I am facing.
I guess the final question that can tie all this together is, can I rewire all this, using the wiring in place, but removing the stock amp, just by following the colors of the wires?
Sorry for the confusion, but thanks a lot for anyone who can help me out, otherwise its off to Tweeter or somewhere else to have it all rewired again from the headunit
