i'm pretty new at this, but i think you can use a multi-channel amp to run everything. otherwise you would probably need a single channel amp for the sub and a 2-channel amp for the speakers. or you could run your new speakers off a head-unit but hu's dont have much rms power, chances are it will limit your speakers to 30-50% of their full power.

but if you have a stock amp, i dont see why you couldnt use it to power just your speakers.

You could use a multi channel amp yes and that would be the best thing. You could use JLs 500/5 (which has a 250/1 built in) or the new 6 channel JL eClass amp.
Look into those.
I am a car audio manager in Tampa, FL for a shop that is a JL dealer and has been since the day JL opened.

Ok I can get you;

(1) JL Audio VR-525-CSI,
(1) JL Audio 10W3v2 Sub,
(1) JL Audio 250/1 Mono Block amp,
(1) Stinger Wiring kit for the amp,
(1) Interface for signal to JL amp
All products with shipping for
$920!!!
That keeps you in your budget.
You do however still need a box for the sub though.
Where do you live? Maybe I can through a basic box in if your close or want to pay for the box to be shipped.

I know the shop, "The Car Stereo Shop" right?
Well that amp can't support the 8W7 you need at least 250watts to power correctly.
I can do something like that too but he mentioned he wanted a 10W3.
Give me a list of items and I will give you a price.
BTW, I am in Tampa, FL

I'm impressed that is correct...

I am interested in probably a 10in sub as it appears the trunks insulation for sound is very good...

I need a place to get this installed and would like to meet you and discuss the items I want in person. I was planning on visiting several places this pm and week...
I may also want to replace the speakers too...but need to feel comfortable the person doing the work works on 5 series cars...

also I was hoping to spend between $600-1500 depending on my options, what is realistic and cost effective and too meet my needs...if you could email me at either [email protected] or [email protected] ...I could go to your local stre and meet with you.

Also need to get car window tinted ..

thanks

Neal
