I have an F25 and instead of one black amp, there are two silver units in the driver side rear cargo panel. Is just one for the sound system? Can this really be replaced virtually plug and paly with the JBL MS/8? Can I drop in some Gladen One 200 BMW speakers as well?

If I want to take the next step up and get closer to 75 watts RMS per channel, what should I get? I'm not looking to overkill the system, but find the current base USA system pretty poor sounding.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.
