New Stereo system installed. Questions??
I decided it was stereo upgrade time. Double din was out of the question so I bought a JVC AVX-77 head unit, steering wheel control unit and the appropriate connectors.
I have on order a set of BSW stage 1 upgrade speakers. The fronts and rears are on back order so I currently have the stockers in.
I pick the car up tonight and it sounds like ****. The speakers are a definite problem but there is distortion from the 40 mark on the volume, up (it goes to 50). The unit itself has an amp (50wx4) so I believe the installer bypassed the factory one. The car came with the stock non-HK system.
Does anyone recognize what could be the issue? I am considering adding the BSW sub but will wait until the speakers are upgraded first. I need to get this straight. At this point, it sounds worse than the stock BMW system.
