There's nothing special about the installation, although the Dual Illumination function has allowed me to change the display to a red / orange colour to match the dial lights on the BMW [ see graphic above ]. The headunit is fitted into the standard slot in the front of the BMW which is almost level with the gearstick. This is quite handy when searching through cd's as you can rest your hand and press the [TRACK] button at the same time. [Note: "Of course I wouldn't do such a thing whilst driving along, as it may distract me from the all important driving that I am doing, officer"] I only use the low level RCA outputs from the headunit even though the internal amp puts out 4x35 watts. All of the techie details about the head unit are in the table below.
The RCA cables that connect this unit to the electronic crossover are triple shielded items that run from the rear chassis mounted plugs through to the boot, avoiding as much of the car's existing wiring [ and the power for the amplifiers ] as possible, in order to reduce the possibility of noise entering the signal path.
