I assume you have the HiFi system. The answer is that you cannot connect a central speaker to the OEM "deck" unless you have Logic 7. There is not connection in the HiFi (or base) systems fro center speakers, nor does it have the processing required to run it.

I thought 07's still came with L7 standard?(at least in the 335)
In any case you should determine what you have and it its Hi Fi
the previous comments are correct.

thank you for all the reply .. I do have a hifi system , so i will need to get an ms8 or similar.
Is it possible to just wire it to any of the door speakers ... i don't want a separate control , I just want another speaker

Stereo 101 you need another channel with a mix

Stereo 101 you need another channel with a mix .
Also the existing channels are already weakly powered so
tapping more power out of them is not a good idea.
This will not improve the overall sound without other amps
processors or controls.
If you really want to improve the sound and want a lot of speakers
something like the ms-8 is needed.
If you just want better sound and amp and better speakers will transform
the system.

Your starting point should be here

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=641323

There is a Hi Fi section with example systems but read the first sections to.
