I have a Kenwood KSC-BP210 Dual bandpass box with 2 10's and an Kenwood KAC-6201 Amp sitting in my basement outta my old car. What would I need to stick it in my Bmw?

Would I need a new amp for the stock speakers?
Anything special to run it from the OEM deck?
Should I buy a larger amp for the subs ? (Not up to speed on all power issues and stuff, so if I could use more power let me know)

I am planning on getting a custom made system next year but want some bump till then, will this stuff suffice? I just dont want to go out and pour a lot of money in it till next year when I do it all. Any help would be nice. Thanks..

If all you want is more bass, just tap into the factory system and power the subs with the amp, keep the rest stock. Since you already have the equipment, just plop it inthere and see what it sounds like. If you are not happy, you can always upgrade later.
