I actaully would have kept it after going up to aftermarket amp and speakers, however I started trying to run it off the RCA outputs of my Audiocontrol LC6i, and it seems the Basslink's RCA inputs are very sensitive and can only accept 4v input max. Since I wanted to set the loc to be giving off more like 7 to 8 v to the component speakers amp, I could never get it to balance right. The speaker level input, however, on the Basslink can take up to 15 volts or something like, and as such worked perfectly when connected that way. I'd highly recommend it for factory setups.
is that right? the speaker inputs are actually better?

(I won't be doing the basslink route, I'm more of a DIY'er kind of guy -- I just like browsing other people's installs)

Anyway, reference your post, I would agree, especially if what I am hearing is true -- that the factory amp crosses over it's outputs vs. full-range. (Is the rear amp a four channel with 2 bridged for the sub? I know very little about the HK system and it's driving me nuts! LOL)

The only disadvantage, and it's always the case...everytime you cut a wire, add a component, frock with the factory stuff, you ALWAYS take a chance on introducing noise and alt whine. And that just sucks after you've spent all that time and money...
