Where is the stock amplifier in my car?
 
84 318i, just bought a cd deck to put in and don't want to use the stock fader/amp. Any help appreciated *th-up* :)

mine was in the trunk on the left side. It's behind that carpet stuff where the factory jack is. just look aroung there and you'll find it

I dunno about the 80's but mine is under the steering wheel, behind the plastic covering

I never did find it, and I looked in all those places :( ANyways, I just reran the front speakers and tapped the wires running to the rears :)

there's a difference...

I bought I cheap ass Jensen deck from that xs cargo place for $79, so the volume is a little lower, but I gained some RCA Preouts so +small 40X2 amp +8"tubed sub= decent driving music for now. Enough to overcome the sunroof & 2windows effect anyways. My biggest complaint was the stock fader...only two signals going into the amp, and the amp just duplicated that for the rears :(

on the plus side i did find out what that middle button on the console is for (marking rubbed off years ago I guess :P), my broken power antenna.
