Search "summing" as these audio systems are kind of tricky. I just added a 6 ch amp and (2) 10" subs by using an Audio Control LC7i. Subs are in the trunk and due to the sound deadening material it...

World of difference. My wife has a 2008 Accord EX, I have a E60 550i. Just the way the doors close is a drastic difference. Honda sounds "tinny", BMW are a solid thud. Even my 03 540 felt more solid....
