    I recently bought a nice 330xi but one problem I had is that the speakers inside are obviously ancient and most of them sound like they are torn, so I was wondering what is the best bang for your buck complete systems out there. I would like more bass but as long as they are better than stock I...

    Hi I’ve just bought a e46 325ci msport convertible and I was a bit disappointed with the lack of bass and depth to the sound system any recommendations I’ve heard ‘rainbows’ being thrown around but I can’t find any for sale anywhere Thanks🤙

    I have a 2002 330 sedan that came with the Harmon Karden sound system. Right after I purchased it four years ago I ripped out almost all of the audio electronics and replaced them with an Android-based head unit that I've been pretty happy with. There's nothing obviously wrong with the...

    Hello everyone, I had bought a 2002 330i about 8 months ago and never had a radio in it. I always thought of doing a full sound system since the first day I got it so I bought myself a little Christmas present and got some Focal RSE-165 Speakers for the front and the same for the rear deck. As I...

    Hi All, I have a 2005 E46 330Ci with the stock Business CD head unit, no Harmon Kardon, and this situation in the boot: Looks to me like there is no amplifier here. The audio quality is horrific; zero bass, easily distorted and very tinny. I think there are four speakers in total; two in the...

And whenever i try to listen music, all speakers kicks over. Like speakers are broken. But they aren’t, on low volume is everything okay. So guys id like to...

    I have the harmon Kardon sound system in my 325xi. The guy who had it before me, blew all the speakers and the amp is also blown. Did this come with a sub? I don't think so. So I've replaced 2 speakers already and that helped. My question is should just replace the factory amp and buy a sub? Or...

    Hey so I have a 2003 325i and all my front speakers work but for some reason the back ones don’t. Do you have any suggestions on what this could be? I’ve read some places that the factory amp could be blown but I haven’t had the chance to look at it.

    Seriously mulling this over. It's really not crazy expensive for the tourings, especially since you don't get the rear bass drivers. (Not included in this kit.) Just that the sound in my 2002 E46 Touring is absolute catbarf. It's muddy and dull and I can barely have the stereo on. I'm fine...

    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...

    hello, it recently rained for the first time and I found a small spot of water on the drivers side front carpet. In the following days all my windows fogged up very easily and there were even drops of condensation on some of them. I'm planning on checking the vapor barriers as I suspect this may...

    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...

    I just installed a Bluetooth module through my aux input on business cd radio. Used posi tap to attach black from module to brown ground and red from module to purple white switch power. Everything worked fine for a minute. Then as I was stuffing everything back in the Stereo sound lost its...
  18. E46 Convertible
    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...

    Hi. Yes, I have used the search feature. No clear answers honestly. I have standard HiFi speakers. My back speakers and front speakers are already aftermarket, amp stock. Back speakers are 4ohm and sound okay. My Bass is still crap. What I need help with is the front. They're Rockford fosgate 5...

    Okay so I literally have no idea what happened to my speakers so any help or suggestions would be incredibly helpful. So a long time ago I installed an aftermarket kenwood stereo in my e46, it was really simple and worked great. Then a while after that, I decided to install 2 subwoofers and an...
