Install came out great, you can see it here. I highly recommend each and every component.

I'm not too familiar with the MS-8 and upgrades to L7 systems, but I think I've read the MS-8 works great without needing line output converters... I think you can plug all your L7 amp speaker outputs in the MS-8. Not sure about the Bluetooth echo, but I'm sure if you search MS-8 you'll get all the answers you need.

I would just upgrade the underseat woofers and see if thatís enough bass for you. I think the Jehnerts do amazingly well with rock and even music with a lot of low bass like techno. Iíd skip a trunk sub for now and see if you like the sound without a sub. If you ever had a decent sub though, youíll probably miss that extra kick. I did, so Iím upgrading with an Audison Bit One.1, Arc Audio KS500.1 mini and Musicar NWís trunk sub.

You'll get a lot of different opinions on this. I've always been an old-fashioned 2 channel stereo person, so I've never used a center channel, although i always use rear speakers to keep back seat listeners entertained. Supposedly a center channel can raise the sound stage up; I've already installed the Bit One.1 and with the time delay settings tweaked it sounds like vocals are coming from right in front of me. The MS-8 probably does even better with its auto tuning.

Morels and Jehnerts all the way. Iíve read the SW-8 underseat drivers do better with low bass at the expense of upper bass. For amps I went with 2 Arc Audio KS125.4 minis (4x75 into 4 ohms for front and rear and 2x250 bridged into 4 ohms for underseat) and 1 KS500.1 (500x1 at 4 ohms for sub).
