Im looking to upgrade my sound system. Before i do that i need to no exactly what i have.
Just form reading on the net i under stand that an e34 (stock) can have 10 speakers an amp and cd stacker and cassete/radio.
I don't hav a cd stacker and i can only find 6 speakers. I also dont think i have an amp, its not in the boot or under the passenger seat.
Does anyone know if theirs a better quality sound system and a worse one?
And what are the diferences?
Most cars have an amp. The head unit just isn't powerful enough to drive the speakers. I do know that my '91 525i has one, had to go back in and hook up the power to it after i put a now head unit in. Where it is i have no idea. Next time I'm at the breakers yard i will look in a turn up one and see if I can find out where it is. As far as the speakers, if you only see 6 thats probably what you have. All the e34 525i's I've seen have only 6. Hope this helps.
