Frequency Response (±3dB): 45Hz -22kHz

well any audio shop will tell you to bypass that amp al together, wether that means taking it out all together or leaving it in and bypassing with all new wiring.
as for suggestions i dunno , i guess any type of 4 channel amp will work .

i have a basslink and infinity's all around (coax in the back, component up front), i've left the stock amp in due to lack of money but as far as the basslink goes i just spliced into the speakers, works fine - it really all depends on how great of a system you want

Bavauto has a basslink with the proper connections to just hook in to a e36 and not have to rewire anything. Just unplug stock amp, plug in basslink, plug stock amp back in. instant bass.
