This is my first post on e46fanatics. FYI, I have an e36 :\

This weekend I am looking into getting a system for my car. Nothing outrageous, but I want it to sound nice. I just bought the Alpine CDA-7894 headunit and I am looking to get more bass


I am thinking about buying:

1. JL 10 inch w7
2. A good 500-600 watt amp

What brand amp should i get?

Are my HK speakers good enough or will I have to buy an amp to power them in order to hear over the w7?

Contact me via email if you can get audio equipment at cost or give me a call at 619 884 4004 if you can help me out. Thanks guys.

Paolo

get the JL 1000/1!!! if your not changing out the speakers then leave it on the stock amp, until you change out the speakers.

Do I really need 1k watts to power a 10 inch W7? I thought they recommend that you get 500/1 for the 10 inch and 1000/1 for the 12 inch? DO you think it will sound good with the 10 inch W7 and 500/1 with stock HK speakers and ALpine 7894 headunit?

Everyone tells me this:

JL 10 W7 uses the 500/1

JL 12/13/13.5 use the 1000/1

I could be wrong

But i think 500 watts is enough for the 10 inch w7
