6 speaker upg help pls! (non amp) with my new Avin Avant 4!

hi guys. I've just purchased the maddest hu I could find for the e46.. the new Avin Avant 4. looks so factory even the buttons.. has BMW iBUS so can code some things, shows parking sensors, heaps of cool stuff.. it arrives tomorrow (fingers crossed)

I have the standard 6 speaker setup (euro non HK, no amp) and want advice on speaker upgrade with minimal fuss and no amp.

the Avin Avant pumps out 4 x 48w with its mosfet quad bridge built in power amp, straight into the factory harness

I've spent hours researching.. found only crap bmw ones (no way they're paper!) the bavsound (great), and found a german company ESX audio that make factory fit (exact fit no spacers) with their vs165c speakers but pretty expensive $270 delivered to australia (but only 129 euro.. damn!) for the 6.5" front mids + tweeter pairs, and another $190 for the 6.5" rear deck pair to australia (79 euro.. wish I could get at that price).. but nothing else reqd so saves on spacers and time modding BUT I CANT FIND ANY REVIEWS!

Anyone installed these b4 or even heard of them?

they are:-
160mm polypropylene woofers 4 ohm
25mm silk neodymium tweeters
12db crossovers

80 watts rms - 160 watts max.

so seem the business but hate buying things with no reviews..

I've also gone thru crutchfield website to see what they think fits, but all need spacers (found the scosche spacers tip handy) the usual suggestions.. rock fosgate, kicker, mtx, sound ord, etc
heaps cheaper this way but then I'm trying to match ohms etc.. and do a stack of spacers, wire splicing, etc

anyone tried these or can suggest their 6 speaker (non amp, euro) upgrade successes would be a great help.. want my new $800 hu to rock!

I used the Bavsound speaker kit with their sub enclosure and sub amp and called it a day. Sounds great with the factory nav head unit but $1600 USD by the time I was all in.

Solved! I bought the German made ESX VS 165cm Vision woofers (mid bass for rear shelf) and components and woofers (mid bass) for front doors.. very sweet and 3 hole completely plug n play custom made for the e46! Fraction of the price
