I have done installs before on oem "amplified" systems (older fords in particular) that I didnt know were amplified until I turned everything on and got symptoms very much like the dynavin problems. Hiss, clicks, hums, bleed, all kinds of problems. Installed a line output converter in line and the problems go away. This is common everyday practice for a stereo installer....matching input and output levels of different components so everything plays nice together.
I am thinking of trying this loc fix. I am going to use a pac oem2 and install it on the dynavin wiring harness after the head unit. What do you think? I figure that it is a cheap fix if it works and i don't have to cut bmw oem harness.
