I replaced the factory head unit with a Dynavin Clone and now my speakers sound like they are getting way too much power and on the fringe of distortion. It's in my 2001 325i, so they've been played to death I know, but sounded pretty good before the head unit was replaced.

If I replace my factory speakers with the BSW upgraded ones, will that make a huge (positive) difference if the head unit is still going through the factory amp? I think my biggest issue is that the Dynavin clone adds 45w x 4 before it gets to the factory amp. Another option is removing the amp and letting the head unit drive my factory speakers. It sounds like CRAP at the moment, so I've got to make a decision one way or the other. I'd like to get some opinons before I either spend a lot of money on replacement speakers, or spend a lot of time trying to figure out how to bypass the factory amp. Thoughts/suggestions? Thanks!
despite what is being suggested here, these so-called "dynavin clones" are not bad at all, over the last two years i have installed quite a few of these chinese head units into various vehicles and they are all still functioning perfectly.
Anyway,back to your problem, your h/u puts out about 50w per channel,you are overdriving your factory amp,my car does not have an amp in the boot,so my "clone" sounds great,far superior to the old business cd it replaced,maybe you could eliminate your factory amp and just power the speakers directly,or perhaps use a line out converter?
