HK problem - best solution?
 
I know absolutely nothing about audio so I figured i'd post here before I walk into a shop and get taken advantage of.

I just purchased a 2003 e46 and noticed that atleast 2 of the HK speakers have some crackling (fronts I believe). I assume that this means they need replacement being that most likely they are just getting old.

I'd like to know the best solution for this problem. I'm not a huge audio guy, but if im going to spend the money I might as well do it right. Is there anyway I could just replace the 2 speakers at an audio shop or will I have to replace the entire system? Do some shops have a set price for a entire audio overhaul? I know its not that big of a deal, but crackling speakers in my new car is driving me :loco:

BSW seems to have the only quality midrange speaker replacement and the cost isn't too bad. There is some cheaper stuff on ebay. A lot of threads seem to indicate this is the driver that goes out first you will have to determine that yourself by listening closely.

You can purchase them a pair at a time of save $100 and get all speakers for $599. They are supposed to be much better quality.

Looks like a pretty solid package

What is BSW's warentee on the speakers? I see their garentee, what no info on a warantee.

Also I am only seeing the front door tweaters, not the front door speakers, am I looking in the wrong location?
