325xiguy is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I just purchased a 2002 BMW325xi. It has the Harmon Kardon upgraded
stereo, but the sound is disappointing. Does anybody have recommendations
to upgrade the system. Is it possible to get good sound by upgrading just the
amp, or do I need to replace speakers and the front end unit?

YOU HAVE TO GET A NEW HEAD UNIT, i wasn't told that, i just got new speakers yesterday and the sound is all unproportional, and you can't control the bass and treble very good
