Angry ///M3 Lower Door Speakers

Hey guys I have an '01 M3 and i want to replace the two speakers on the doors (the lower ons near your feet) cause they suck!!!! I have the H/K system but I dont think that matters.
I will eventually put a killer system in but I need to replace these two now before i go nuts. What size are they and what do you guys think I should replace them w/? I was thinkin Alpine typeR speakers but I dont know much about audio, i.e. speaker sizes & types. I could really use some info and advise!!!!!!

Cool

Hi,
I dont have a M3 but I do have a 330ci with the Hk setup and what I did was add a 4 channel amplifier, which will be about the same price as a good set of components, to the existing Hk speakers and it sounds great. Every one is always amazed at the clarity and think that I am running boston or MbQuart. Hope this helps.

The ones that are there in the door panel are mids which I think were 6 1/2, but you can use 5 1/4 with an adapter either will work.
Hope this helps

What 4 channel amp did you add? Was the HK one bad?

I've got an E46M3 with HK, and I was wondering what I can do to make it a little better, clearer, etc. I'm really new to this car audio thing, but what is the current setup of the HK? What sizes of speakers, and power rating are they?
