    What is the best processor for going active w/ oem HU

    I've searched and searched on a few different forums but am at what appears to be a dead end.

    Im piecing together a system for a 335i and have the OEM Nav unit which ties into the rest of the car (settings, AC, etc) so I cant get rid of it

    Ive read about and considered the following:
    Alpine h650
    Alpine H701 + C701
    RF 3Sixty.2
    JL Cleansweep

    From what Ive gathered the Alpine combo and the 3Sixty.2 are the best bets but each still has major drawbacks.

    Can someone recommend any of the above processors or would it be my best bet to wait for the JBL MS8 and pay the much higher price?

    Also:
    The OEM setup for 335i's are:
    4" mids and tweeters in the front and back
    8" subs under the front seats.

    So I'd like to go 3way active in the front and run the rear fill as passive.

    ive installed all but the 360.2 and for factory intergration the pxe-h650 wins hands down

    here shortly i'm going to use the JL cleansweep on my factory radio....then run the rca's to the pxa-h701 and run it on the controller. I'll let you know how that goes.

    From looking at the termpro forum meade uses the 3sixty.2 and it looks like alot of control.




    Alpine CDA-9886
    RUX-C701
    PXA-H701
    JL xr-650csi
    JL vr-650cxi
    2 8" W7
    JL HD750/1
    JL HD600/4
