2006-2009 and 20011.5-on E90 and E92 3-Series HiFi (standard) sound system
2007-on E93 3-Series and all E9x M3 HiFi (standard) sound system
2008-2009 and 2011.5-on 1-Series HiFi system (standard)

Harness features include:

- labeled speaker input wires
- OEM remote turn on activation by relay
- OEM HU/iDrive RCA output cables

No OEM wires to cut, tapped or spliced. Just unplug OEM amp, connect this harness to your aftermarket/balanced inputs-compatible amp and then plug it into the OEM audio harness. Aftermarket amp requires connection to the OEM battery 12V and ground, harness will not provide power to aftermarket amp.

Price is $75 shipped in the USA. PayPal accepted...

This is neat, so it plugs into the trunk where the amp is? I wasn't aware this was on the market ive never seen it before, where did you get it from?
Sorry, I have already cut my trunk harness up, GLWS!!!

Technic, We just purchased a 2011 328i with idrive and the standard sound system. It does not have the door tweeters. Would your harness work for this car? We have to do something about the sound system. it's terrible. I think our first step would be to upgrade the amp.

Thanks

Thanks... if your 328i has a black OEM amp in the left side of the trunk then this harness will work. And by the way, your email does not work.

Please, I would need to know if the distribution block in your car has any empty slots (single or double) and if there are any metal blades inside that slot.

For example, the blue connector is a single slot in the photo attached.

I see six slots. 1st one from left was take with 8gauge red wire, 2nd slot, I read 12.8v without car key in, 3rd one with blue dot is taken with black wire. 4,5 and sixth slots have grey dots on them and I didn't feel any metal contact inside slots. I just found out you also have 8"subwoofer with pre fabed enclosure I would like to buy. How much are they and where do I get more info?

I don't sell any 8" pre-fab enclosure but contact this site for a 10" enclosure for a Sedan: www.musicarnw.com

I can get one made for a Coupe, PM for details.

The E90/E46 HiFi harness kit includes:

- harness
- 6ft of 12V, 3ft of ground cables, 4AWG max, terminated with OEM connectors for PnP connection to the battery distribution block and ground point.

Inline fuse holder -max 60A fuse- is $10 extra.

The harness is used to replace the OEM amp in the HiFi system. The HiFi system has a black amp in the left side of the trunk.

The LC6i is a line output converter (high to low level) and line driver (increases the amplitude of the low level signal) in one single box. It is not needed for a HiFi system as the OEM outputs are low level and 5V balanced standard.

If the idea is to replace the OEM amp with a more powerful aftermarket amplifier and still keep OEM speakers then the direct and best OEM amp replacement is the JL Audio XD600/6. No need of any device between this HiFi harness and the XD amp.

There should be a black OEM amp in the left side of your trunk, under the grey plastic cover.

Hi Technic,

I'm planning on upgrading the audio system of my E93 M3 with hi-fi system (amp in the boot) with the latest iDrive..I'm planning on having the following installed in the front...

Morel Hybrid ovations & Morel tweeters
Earthquake SWS-8 subs
all connected to an Audison lrx 6.9 amp
With an Audison BitOne processor

I intend to keep the rears connected to the standard amp.

I don't want the installer cutting and splicing around the oem connectors so thought your harness/connectors maybe suitable...what would you recommend?!

Also would you recommend spacers for the Earthquake subs?

All the best,

David

Hi David

I did an E93 M3 sound system using Morel HO in the front and SWS-8 underseat last year: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=405224

The Morel HO requires an special spacer/bracket to fit your front doors or the magnet will hit the window mechanism. Look at the last page of that thread and you will see the plastic spacer that I created just for the Morel HO and the E92/93 front doors.

You could also take a look at the new Hybrid Audio Carbon speakers for the front: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=605465 ... no special spacers required, great sound.

The SWS-8 also require spacers.

The HiFi harness that I sell replaces completely the OEM amp so it is not possible to keep it to power the rear speakers.

Hi Technic!

Sorry it's taken so long to get back to you...the spacers/brackets for the Morels look perfect! Are you selling them, if so can you pm the details and I'll send payment across to straight away!

Also I've bought Focal PC100 speakers for the rear, do you know if they'll need spacers/brackets also?

Many thanks,

The amp I'm going to be using, JL audio 600/6 has the balanced inputs that will be needed.

Though as far as inputs go, it still requires RCA inputs as there is no 'speaker level ports' (if thats the right terminology.

Will 3 of these, connected to your your harness work, Technic?

please excuse my ignorance, I'm trying to learn as I go here...

But looking at the 'input section' of this amp, they look like 6 RCA female plugs... if your harness puts out 6 speaker/like wires... that is doesn't end in an RCA terminal of some sort... would I not need something to go from your harnesses individual 'speaker wire' to an RCA connection that this amp will need?

Okay thanks for the tip there. I did go and find the owners manual document. From what I read there, I can see what you're saying about 4 channels in (I guess it has some sort of internal crossover for the subwoofer signal)--- understood now. Thanks.

That still leaves me with my initial question however. From what I can tell by the looks of a few pictures of your harness by various members, its a connector that plugs into the OEM harness... and out the other end comes a bunch of (for lack of correct terminology) speaker wire, and other relatively high gauge remote turn on wires etc.. etc... (looks like a headunit harness) -- either way I didn't see it ending in any RCA plugs that can be plugged into an AMP (male OR female)

That installation document you suggested I read through says "Input connections are via up to three pairs of traditional RCA-type jacks."

My question to you is, do I use something like what I posted before (and the bottom of this post), in order to make that transition from your speaker wire type of input to an RCA input? Or does your harness end in RCA inputs and I'm just misinformed?

Also I PMed you on e90post requesting help on all kindsa stuff.. but i think after a few days of research I've gotten it all figured out. I still need to know however, how to purchase the harness/speaker adapters/and speaker spacers I may need (4" for the doors) if you're willing to sell them to me :) -- If for some reason you'd prefer me to PM you here please let me know and I'll be happy to oblige.

The HiFi harness wires directly to the XD600/6 and to any balanced-inputs aftermarket amp. See the first page of this thread for a picture of the harness.

Well, there are RCA cables going into the amp, so I assume from the best I can tell in the picture that those are coming from the harness.. which is good news...

Your problem is one of coding the CIC to recognize your current system (HiFi). No harness of mine will solve that.

Contact forum vendor BimmerTech for coding details.

MAN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Let me tell you, After reading thru tons of posts on upgrading the OEM HiFi stereo - I took the advice of reading thru Technic's Sisters Audio upgrade and installed the JL XD600/6 and a pair of SWS underseat Subs with the Technic Plug N Play Harnesses and all I have to say is GOT DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I went a lil more aggressive on the Sensitivity Dial and I really dont know how long these OEM door and rear Dash will handle that level of punishement but I will keep it that way until they blow out and then upgrade them later. These Harnessess made everything so damn easy to install that I was done with the install (Amp & Subs) in about 3 hours total - I was completely amazed at how easy and how fast and extremely Painless it all was.

I cannot Thank you enough.

Hi Technic, how much is one of these including shipping to the UK? I've only just found out about these, so have a couple of questions:

How many channels does an aftermarket amp need to replace the HK amp?

What kind of wattage should the amp have to be suitable for the E46 system and do you need to run a separate amp for the subs? I'll be using CDT 6x9 subs.

Any ideas on what sort of RMS speakers I should look at? I want speakers that fit without cutting the door so will likely go for 6.25" with adapter rings.

Many thanks!

The E46 HK amp uses 11 channels, 10 high level (one per woofer/mids and tweeters) and 1 low level (subwoofer mono amp input).

E46 HK harness have the interface wires for only the 10 high level channels. Only balanced inputs aftermarket amps are directly compatible with the harness.

The aftermarket amp(s) output power that you choose will determine the power rating of the speakers that you will use -or vice versa.

Please search for a more detailed information about your system and upgrade options.

Hi Technic,

I have a E90 with stereo system (not HiFi or Alpine HiFi).

Is it possible to use this cable so i can connect an amp?
Or do i have to code my car to think it has a HiFi amp and then use the cable?

And do you ship international? (Netherlands)

Thanks in advance

Amazing Technic! by the way, is that applicable to the new 3series, F30 HIFI system? I'm working also on my amp DIY and found your thread after buying Zapco 1000.4. I should have read this earlier and bought yours for super convenient installation. Actually I'm stuck at finding at the color code of F30 amp wire. I am trying to connect front and subwoofer to my 4channel amp. Can you let me know which colors of wire should I use? I bought DD link to convert the high to low signals.

Hi Technic,

Will this harness be suitable for replacing the factory amp in a UK spec 2012 F10 (535d) with "business" hi-fi option (BMW code 676) ? I have an amp in the trunk and 12 drivers total.

If so, can you ship to UK ?

I'm probably installing the latest Gladen 201 BMW-specific speakers up front. Is an XD600/6 still the amp to go for ?

I can't PM yet: as an F10 owner this isn't my natural habitat but I haven't seen a harness like this anywhere else.....

Thanks

The HiFi (676) harness in this thread works with the F10. I would suggest the new XD800/8 amp as the replacement of the 7ch OEM amp.

Hi Technic

You mentioned that the harness is for the BLACK amp on the left side of the trunk

I have a 2011 335d, and the amp I found is SILVER, would your harness
work if I want to upgrade my amp to the JL D600.

My speaker configurations are as follow, so I would say I have the Hi-fi option
2 front mids + 2 Tweeters
2 back mids
2 sub

I already replaced the stocked speakesr with BSW 4 mids + 4 tweeters
the sound definitely improved, but the volume level are still pretty low
Would this JL amp upgrade mate with the BSW? And with the harness
it would not be hard to swap out the stocked amp, right?

Also, I see another similar SILVER unit, when I lift the carpet trunk liner
it has some connections, separate wires with color coded connector.
It sits on the right side of a dual bracket, and the left side is empty, look like
it is reserved for some optional equipments

What is that?

HiFi OEM amp changed from black to light grey in MY2011.

I reserve "silver" for the Logic7/HK OEM amps color to not confuse anyone. :thumbup:

The XD600/6 fits where the HiFi OEM amp is.

The main OEM amp connector matches the harness connector, however the DSP part may or may give you an error once disconnected.

You may try unplugging that amp completely and see what happens...
