Two questions that I have searched for, but can not find references about.

1. If I use Forscan to remove the frequency restrictions to the rear /roll bar speakers, does it give those speakers full range? In theory if it did, you could use those to tap into for Subs/amps/etc couldn't you?

2. How the hell do you get into the sub compartment? I have looked all over and can't find images or you tube videos for a 4 door B&O system Sub removal/access. I am going to try to figure it out, but I'm guessing someone has either a link or pics. If its here, sorry to have to ask. I have looked all over.

Thanks.

Your going to add an amp and sub to the B&O system? Why would you want to tap any speaker location when the factory DSP and speaker wiring is right next to the sub.

I'm planning to do a full install in a couple weeks. Until then I hooked up an Audio Control 1.300 amp with an old bandpass box and a 12" Pioneer IMPP (ehh! 8 OHM) to the sub line inputs going to the B&O sub. The plug is just above the sub itself. Sounds great and never changed the rear range to full with forscan. The Audio Controls Accu-bass feature keeps the bass strong throughout the volume scale. Once I set the bass to flat, mid to 75% and treble to 95%, it's really sounds good.

Well. I guess I never thought of it that way. You make a great point. Thanks for the panel removal info. I probably would have figured it out, but it sure is nice to have some idea of how to do it beforehand.
