I am frustrated absolutely. Since my JL amp has just two channels it can only be used to drive subs. The BWM HU is also made by alpine why the alpine amp doesn't work together with alpine HU! I think it is true that BMW amp has noise deduction but aftermarket amps don't.
What should I do? Restall the BMW amp?
Re-solder the RCA plugs or try a LC6i without RCAs/a Matrix with RCAs... no need to reinstall the OEM amp.
