Speaker + sub Amp install Bmw E46

Hi guys,

i'm dutch so sorry for my english.

I got a few questions.

I recently bought a BMW E46, perfect car for me except for the music.

Before the BMW i drove a VW Golf 3(USA edition). And had a subwoofer in it(Kicker Comp DC12) with a kicker 300.1 mono-amplifier.


Now i want to build my subwoofer in the BMW but there's no line out on the HU. So i need to work with a high/low converter. But i also want to put a amplifier for my speakers(and later put some aftermarket speakers in it). That's a total of 2 Amps, and i never worked with high/low converters before. So i really don't know.

Do i need 2 high/low converters if i want that? Or just 1?

Can anybody explain how i need to do that? I'm not totally a noob with car audio, but definitely not a pro.

Scosche offers one that can handle 4 channels that I have used with success. However Rockford Fosgate offers one of higher quality

But this is a considerably better way to do it

I know the working of the converter. But i want to know if i need to use 1 or 2 pieces, because i want 2 amps in the car. i need to put 1 between my HU and the speakers(and put 1 amp on it), but if i also want another amp for my subwoofer, i want to know if i also need to put another hi low level converter for it.

And if i got that answer i want to know how to install it.
