: question about replacing headunit

12-07-2003, 07:40 PM
I didn't realize there was a car audio section on bimmerfest until now, so sorry if you saw this same post on the 3-series page.

I am about to purchase 2 12" Kicker Comp VR subs and an amp to power them (haven't decided on the amp yet) and I'm wondering if I will have to replace my headunit for this setup. I'm hoping I can keep the headunit as it is, I like the car to look as original as possible. Some people have told me I will have to replace my HU and some have said I could keep mine so I'm not sure. Thanks in advance.

also look for postings on the net for a guy name dave bagby.

it has to do w/ the HU using differential signals vs. the standard balanced signals.
