OK so I tried putting a new Alpine in my brothers '89 420SEL. Previous to trying this I knew nothing about gen 2 w126 stereos.

Well I figured out it has amp's lol.
I quickly figured out the line input's to the amps.
Left/right with a shared ground.
I hooked up the line out's on the Alpine to this connector and go no bass.
I made several adjustments on the Alpine to get more bass and nothing. Hooked it all back up to the Becker and it works as it should.

Where did the bass go?
It's a really nice Alpine and he would like to use it.
I have the same HU in my w124, so I know how to use it, and made every adjustment possible to get more volume and bass out of it...
no luck.
