Re: BA Premium Sound System information
I have changed all my gear in my BA and like panda said, it is the sound quality you need to worry about. The amp in the boot supplies only the subwoofer. it is an inbetween voltage of rca and line level. I have tried to use the feed from it ages ago, but something wasn't quite right. the subwoofer levels got lower and lower and eventually some smelt burning. not sure where it came from but it scared the shit out of me.
At this stage i run my speaker line out into stinger line to rca converters with the volume control on the converter. The volume part is a must so make sure you buy the more expensive ones the first time round.
The fronts go to the first amp after being converted as above.
The rears go to an equalizer after being converted as above.
The equalizer has rear on subwoofer out. The equalizer also doubles as a preamp to allow volume controls out to the second amp. This help when splitting the channel in two. when you split a channel you are also halving the voltage to each input on the amp. thus having to turn the amp up louder which then causes more whining and decreases sound quality.
I run kicker amps with all stinger filters, plugs, cables etc and a cadence capacitor. I still get the whining noise come thru but i have many more avenues to test before i get it 100%
I believe the soundstream amps are excelent in the BA but not easily accessible in australia. and are twice the price of the kicker amps i purchased. i would get them if i had my time again and they were available in oz. Check them out and see if you can get them now. its been a while since i last looked. i might have some pics somewhere that i can post. i'll have a hunt around.
hope that is of some use to you.
