Hi Everyone! I recently purchased a 1996 328is! My first bimmer!
I'll try to post pics in the near future.
It came with the "upgraded" HK sound system. Nothing personal to anyone who likes theirs, but I think it sounds like crap.
I'm looking for a new head unit and front speakers, and its a MUST to keep the interior looking stock.
HEAD UNIT: I've had great experiences with Pioneer in the past, but will be happy to try out anything that looks stock and has clean output. Looking for something that at least plays cds, and would like something that plays mp3's too but thats not a must.
FRONT SPEAKERS: I LOVE MB Quart Q Series, but I'm looking for 3 -way separates to fit the tweeters (in door panel), midrange (in door panel) and woofer (in kick-panel) factory locations. Anyone know the sizes of these locations? I think they are 1", 4", and 5.25". Does MB, Boston, or a/d/s have anything to fit? I'll be powering the fronts with 125 x 2 from a ppi amp.
Thanx for any input/help/ideas. I'm gonna hold off on sub for now, and rear speakers aren't a big concern for me as I want to focus on the front imaging so rear stock speakers will work for now.
