EDIT: Ha! I just saw my thread title typo. It's a 325Ci, of course.

Hi. First post here. Ok, here are all the issues:

HU: I have an Eclipse 8454 which is an awsome unit, but doesn't want to open correctly when installed in the E46 dash. Unless someone has seen something that works well with a similar unit, I'll have to get rid of the 8454. My two possible replacements are the Pioneer Premier DEX-P9 with the DEQ-P9 or the Alpine IVA-D300 with the PXA-H701. I hope someone has a good idea for the 8454.

Front speakers: I have an old set of MBQ QM130.03s (5.25" coaxials) that I can use. Does anyone know if 6.25" speakers fit easily into the doors of the E46 325?

Rear speakers: I'm not really planning on using any unless I get the Alpine setup which has DVD. If I do go that route, I can use my old MBQ QM100.3 set (4" coaxials).

Sub: Two JL 10W6v2s on the way.

Amps: Probably a JL 350/2 and a 500/1. I'll add another amp if I go the DVD route obviously.


Other questions: How is the SQ of the subs with them in the trunk?

Thanks B)

Just had MB Quart 6.25 put in my doors of 1999 328i, and they fit perfectly. I say that, but I had them installed by a sound shop, so don't know if they had difficulty or not, but they obviously fit with no evidence of having to cut or trim.

And now I'm looking into CDT 6.5" braxials pretty seriously.
