Either a MS-8 (factory warranty is a must) or a bit one.1 would work nicely with external amps with your EPS. The customer with the HD amps in the HiFi coding link ended up getting a MS-8 to tie all the amps together and have better control and tuning of all the 18 speakers (16 EPS and the 2 13" subs).

Again, try the new LC2i and see what happens first, IMO.

I do not have the tools to remote code, but Mike Benvo and BimmerTech do.
Ok, tomorrow I will change the jumper on the LC2i that's currently in the car.

I will check pricing of the necessary parts and see if it's something I wanna delve into.

As of right now though, I changed the RCAs to the Bass Output and turned the knob to half way. The amp gain is around 1/4-1/2 iirc. This is just to get the sound I desire at the volume I want. These settings are higher than they were before my problems originally started (I had the XD600 and have since switched to the HD750). I am on the second LC2i. Still waiting on Musicar to get me a tracking number on the third LC2i that's supposedly on the way.
