And I*am*! I SWEAR! But ya see.. I showed it off to a fella with an E53. HE liked it. He liked it a LOT. "What I gotta do to get that system forklifted into my ride?" Well, as so often happens, one thing led to ab a zillion others...

This will drive the doors. Within, I will replace the JL Audio C1's with Focal 165F's. I will be removing the C1 crossovers in favor of the amp for that function.
Then, even though I've been thrilled with the bass from the BavSound 8", well, I found a JL 10". Supposedly the difference is palpable. We'll see!

The other things I have been slowly working on include an obscene amount of sound deadening in the doors, behind the headliner, and in the cargo area. I hesitate to accept that the exhaust is 'interfering' with anything bc it sounds teh awesome. But, I am anxious to swap places between the exhaust /road noise and music as the primary audio inside the cabin. It should be a VERY fun time to Florida in a couple weeks!
