Anyone like a/d/s make a amp that will directly replace the one in a M without even connector plug changes? and fits right where the factory distorted whimp goes? ie: easy pop-in
In a non-HK Z3 you can use a small 2x50 amp and it will fit in the factory location. But with the M roadster it has so many additional speakers to drive you need a six channel amp (unless you leave some speakers disconnected).
I don't think anyone has found a six channel amp that is small enough to fit in the factory location. I decided to use an a/d/s/ 8 channel amp and so did Douglas Cambell. Vince used an a/d/s/ six channel amp and I think all three of us are happy with the results (I just had one hell of a time getting mine installed).
Only other advice I would give you is DONT BUY BASS SHAKERS. It's not that I'm not pleased with the results, but the cost and agrivation to get them installed overwelmed their usefulness.
