Yes, the problem was in the amp "surround sound" module.

I was lucky enough last year to find a DPSM NOS on CL last year. Had it in my S, but really didn’t like it... too much fear bias. I had the fader set to 5 or 6 front.



Bypassing the surround chip

Recently I moved the DPSM amp to my GP but used Morel component speakers and a Pioneer DEH-X8800BHS. This Pioneer has a self adjustment function with a mic you place on the driver head rest. Haven’t had much time to list n to it yet, but the few min I used it, sounded good.

Someone on Mini2 figured out that bypassing the surround chip fixes the amp from popping all the time. Check out the last pix in my post, heat the ends of those chips and wire them as shown.

Your electronic equipment, especially the soldering station, made me very jealous.
