    Hi there, sadly I didn't find any help from old topics. After not driving my car for a month due to being sick from covid, my battery was dead. I though that's normal, bearing in mind it's cold here (about 0C). Got a jump start, drove for about two hours and didn't have any problems for the...

    About a month ago my speakers suddenly got really muffled and distant sounding, and I realized that all the tweeters had stopped working. I have the non-HK sound system. I also noticed that whenever I open/move the front drivers side door, there is a crackling noise coming from all the tweeters...

    Awhile back my factory HU volume knob quit working and the factory speakers were blown anyway so I installed a Pioneer MVH-290BT HU and replaced all of my blown stock speakers with some 4 ohm units. I understand that to get it all to sound somewhat good I need to bypass the stock amplifier and...

    Hey guys, I just wanted to do a write up on my upgrades to the stereo system in my 330i. I did a lot of research before I started. I searched this forum and others and read everything I could find. It was difficult to find any definitive information, particularly about using an aftermarket...

    About a year ago I bought a 2006 M3 Convertible and noticed in the trunk the liner had been cut away and there were some wires capped off. I assumed (naively) that the previous owner had an aftermarket audio system/sub box that they kept there and took out when they went to sell the car. Now...

    I am trying to locate the amplifier on my 2005 325Ci vert with Business CD, no HK or Nav. I have looked in the boot - nothing, behind the rear left armrest panel - nothing and behind the rear seats - nothing. Where could it be? I am starting to think that the Business CD HU is powering all...

    Hi guys, I replaced my OEM navi/stereo with Erisin chinese aftermarket stereo navigation. I left my factory speakers (Hi-Fi system) but my factory amp is out of the game now. Can I use some adaptor to connect my factory amp? Or better to buy aftermarket amp? What is better solution for the...

    Went to best buy in search of some aftermarket speakers, and I found some that I liked. I wanted Best Buy's geek squad to do the installation for me because I didn't want to go through the trouble however the sales rep told me they would NOT be able to do the installation if my 2004 325ci has an...

    Hey wondering if anyone might have link to any install or enlighten me on some info for this install. Most Bmw sub/amp install videos or instructions out there are for cars with the Harmon Kardon package. Thanks much appreciated.

    edit: The problem seems to have resolved itself on it's own somehow. The second time I started my car, the radio came on and it's been working all day since. Kind of wondering why that happened but as long as it's working, I'm ok with that. My radio started to cut in and out and sometimes the...

    Car: 2000 323i Stereo: all stock, non-HK Amp part number: 8368230 Two of my speakers (6.25" ones in the doors) sound as if they're blown (most noticeable when listening to talk radio) while in the car, but they looked fine upon visual inspection and tested fine when I wired them into my home...

    Our 99 323 sedan showed all four mid/woofer in the rear deck and in the front doors were needing replaced shortly after we bought it. The foam surrounding the cones had crumbled to dust. I made use of the speaker baskets from the old units and installed four new inexpensive 4 ohm 6.5" Sonys...

    I followed the guides here on the forums on how to do a amp and sub install. Everything went well except the sub's max volume was extremely low, even lower than the stock hk subs. What could be the problem? My amp accepts high differential input, so I had that set and did not use a LOC. It also...

    Just got my first BMW...Harman Kardon blows. I want to run two amps, a 6 channel for the (new)speakers and factory sub(replaced6x9). Then a mono/2 channel for a sub or two. I dont know if i should run loc, or high level inputs. If i use high level inputs, post-amp, would the signal be tweeked...

    I'm driving a 2002 325ci with the HK sound system. As far as I know, everything is stock except for the head unit, which I believe was swapped for a 2004 model. Since we bought the car a couple years ago, there has been this weird issue where all the sound will cut out when you press the...
