- That will be the output voltage of the OEM amp woofer outputs at the lowest frequencies/most power required.

Check again the LC2i settings, paying the most attention to this LC2i manual note:

I would suggest setting the iDrive OEM Bass adjustment and EQ bands to mid level or even less and then boost the bass using the AccuBass level control only if required. Just set the threshold control fully clockwise.

Make sure that you install a 1A fuse on both the LC2i 12V and the remote in (OEM remote signal). Messing around these devices can provoke a short circuit. And once the OEM remote signal is gone, it will be gone from your CIC...

Ok, thank you. I will run some tests when I get home to see what volts mine is spiking too.

My Accubass is OFF.

I have a 1amp fuse on the 12v, but not the remote. I will add one asap.
