Aftermarked HU for car with DSC

Howdy, I know there are a million threads about on this subject. Just wanna know, has anyone successfully installed an aftermarket Head unit in a E38 car with DSC without completely replacing the amp, speakers etc.? In otherwords, has anyone integrated the DSC amp into an aftermarket unit? Got a '96 750il and would like to play my ipod and satellite radio somehow without using some sort of crappy tuner option. Thanks!

Sorry! Better to replace the head unit, add speakers and after market amp. You can tap into the wires that hook into the factory amp for a signal to your after-market amp. E38.org has the DIY. I have done my 740iL.

Gonna replace the whole amp system

Trying to keep the speakers though. Putting in my Kenwood Excellon with Ipod interface and the Sat receiver. 4 channel amp for the big speakers and then run the tweeters and mids to the HU. Crossovers will be somewhat of a [email protected], but gonna try for it anyway. Wish me luck!
