    So I found the entire wiring diagrams, for all speakers. I think that's the info I was missing. I should be able to work my way through it now.

    Ok man I'm bugging you again because you seem the be the only other person who has actually done what I'm trying to do.

    I have some Focal components ready to install in the front and Polk 631s for the back doors and a Rockford Fosgate 4 channel amp ready to drive them. The sub and the DQ-61 are installed. I've tapped into the front door speakers AFTER the Bose amp but that's as far as I've gotten with hijacking signal.

    What I'm struggling to understand now is how to set up the DQ-61 the way I need to, and which all wires to tap into, and how to be sure I'm getting the full signal into the DQ-61 to sum.

    This system is wack. I'm hoping since I'm doing essentially the same thing you did that you can give me some tips -- but I realize you don't even own this car any more so please feel free to say "I don't remember" or "stop bothering me." :-)

    Thanks for the information, really helpful. I may end up just doing exactly what you describe because at some point I would love to upgrade the front components in addition to the sub. At that point I think I could be perfectly happy. Looks like you can pick up that particular AudioControl LOC/DSP used for a pretty reasonable price.

    Thanks again.

    Hi - recently upgraded my '04 3i to a 2015 3 S GT hatchback... love it. In my old car I had an aftermarket audio setup that I installed myself and also loved. I've been burning my eyes out reading the forums about what can be done with my new car and its Bose system.

    Bothering you because you have clearly done and learned a lot. Right now I'm planning to start by at least adding the powered sub and LOC like you did.

    Before I start though I was wondering what else you have done/added/changed since then or what you would do different if you were starting out.

    Seems like to actually go aftermarket all the way requires pricey DSP, etc etc. I would love to go nuts, but don't really have the time or money to. Do you have thoughts on incremental upgrades worth doing? I'd like to do more than sub, just not sure how to get the most out of my adds with this funky Bose setup.

    Thanks for your time and for all the awesome information you've taken the time to post to date.
