Also, I'm a not specialist for audio tuning, is there a website that explains how to use the DSP tool ? Because it sounds strange for now, voices are too loud and central speaker too.

Thanks
I connected the amp to the battery using 8 gauge cable and noticed no difference in sound quality. You shouldn't have to hook it up to the battery; I did it just to try it out.

Check out Audiotec Fischer website for tuning tips. https://www.audiotec-fischer.de/en/d...ning-magazine/

Thanks a lot!
I will have a look to the link when I'll have time.
For now, I loaded the "Limousine" tune file I found on audio fischer website, and it is quite good (to my hear) compared to the others I tested.

Did you have the Harman Kardon system before? I have that system in my M235i convertible and have installed the Match Up 7 amp as well as an 8" Alpine subwoofer in the trunk fed by a 500W kicker amp. I am very curious to know how the Focal speakers (did you get the BMW-specific ones?) with the Match amp compare with the HK speakers w/Match amp.

For me, the amp replacement resulted in a very noticeable improvement in the soundstage and the subwoofer has greatly improved the bass detail and impact, but I still feel like the midrange and treble are lacking some clarity. I particularly feel this way after driving my E90 with the Logic 7 system and (especially) after driving my wife's new Audi Q5 with the B&O system. I think new speakers, at least in the front, are likely the answer, but do not have time to go to 5 different shops to listen in person. Morel, Focal, etc. all seem to use difference, dispersed dealers in my area.

Hello,

I had the Hifi option before switching the OEM amp and speakers (except subwoofers).
First I changed the amp, sound was improved but it was not so impressive (also I did not have time to correctly setup the amp).
Three days after, I changed for the IFBMW-S focal in front doors and a pair of ICU 100 for rear pillar.
I can see how OEM speakers are a shame compared to the focal.
The result was much better without debate but still need to tune the amp because to much medium from central channel.
I loaded the "limousine" tune file from Audiofischer website thanks to DSP-tool and it makes a big step further and I'm very please with it right now.
End of the week I will be in vacation so I will try to tune it more precisely.

Will this amp fit equally well into a F22 M235i?

Where are y'all sourcing the Match UP-7BMW? I can't find it anywhere online in stock and the prices are approaching $1000. For that money is there not anything else that would be a better value with equal or better performance?
