I didn't realise you got the BSW sub woofer as well, in that case I'd keep that then and not even bother with the rear speakers and just replace the font speakers with something decent.

Yeah I bought the whole kit.. .such was my impatience with the sound hahaha. Yeah, you're right. I've blown away enough money in the last 2 months - I'll keep subby and upgrade front speakers and use stock BM53 to run it all. I'll report back with my findings on the BM53 line out pins.. i hope they are not fixed level.

Ok, turns out the LINE OUT (LEFT,RIGHT) of the BM53 uses differential outputs instead of traditional RCA line signals (1.5Vpeak). I'm just going to use the LOC on the rear speakers to tap out the signal for subby. I hooked up sub in my living room for a quick test (after faking the REMOTE ON) - and it has a nice tight musical bass, with plenty of volume for MY ears. Bass is subjective and everyone has their own needs. This is perfect for me as I enjoy deep,clear, punchy bass - which this unit has.
