Want to upgrade

Hey Guys,

Just picked up a E46 328i non HK stereo system, stock speakers are the OG's and suck. What would you guys recommend for replacements and also there are No rear speaks at all and would like to installed some good 6x9's to enhance the bass.

I'm in the same boat, but have the HK. Almost all my speakers are blown from PO. I am just planning on the Bavsound speaker upgrade. I don't want to deal with trying to custom fit speakers. They are a bit pricey, but they are also bolt in.

PS. Congrats on the car!

Thanks Bro and loving my E46 so far and for being a older car it still looks good and handles better then my wife's new car. And I agree on custom fitting speakers, I will look into the Bavosund spearks you mention also but would love to get some 6x9's in the rear to bring out the bass.

My Ride: 2002 325i
I updated my 2002 E46 325i all with Bavsound. I bought a HK amp and then the 4 ohm 10 speaker replacement to match the HK amp. It sounded better but just OK. So for around $1K investment so far I had limited results. So Bavsound recommended the sub woofer system that provided a 800 watt amp and a subwoofer box with 11" speakers and that box mounted at the top of the trunk so it left almost all space in the trunk usable. It mounted up high under the rear window. This really made all the difference in the world. It really kicked the entire system to the next level. It hits hard on the lows and crystal clear on the highs It has been this way and trouble free for nearly 10 years now. The guys at Bavsound really are a pleasure to deal with. If you have the budget to throw about $1600.00 into the factory BMW sound system, go with them, it is amazing.
