Hi, i am very naive when it comes to car audio, so if someone could help me answer some questions that would be great.

I have already searched the forums to try to solve my problem but this is specifics i am looking for.

First off, I want to improve some loudness but more importantly, the sound quality of my sound system and want to upgrade my system.

I have read online here that it is better to get a 6.5" component setup and cut into the metal frame of the fron doors to increase sound quality, is this true?

I would like to buy a set of 2 way component speakers and i was wondering if i would have to buy a separate amp to power those speakers and what specifications i would have to look for in the components because i know the factory bmw amp sends out an unbalanced signal and idk if the ohms would get messed up if i hooked up just any pair of components.

My price range is about 200$ for the speakers and idk how much it would cost for a decent amp to power those speakers if i need an amp in the first place. I have read great things on these http://www.12velectronics.com/servlet/the-108/HYBRID-AUDIO-TECHNOLOGIES-IMAGINE/Detail
and these http://www.woofersetc.com/p6201/CTX6...ker-System.htm

Thanks,
Nick

I would look on this form for people selling there stuff. Cheaper and you pretty much know it will fit. Yea cutting holes in your doors is the best way to go as far as sound quality. But my components sound fine i have 6.5 bought an adapter from eas. Used bsw for help as far as wiring and door panel removal. They even got a video on youtube. I just installed mine last night Started at 3 was done by 7 and I'm pretty anal about my bimmer. Image d makes a good speaker i had image d 12 in my jetta they had a three year warranty loved them. I got the hex 6.5 diamonds and they fit great I was a little nreves about the instal. My crossovers are huge but they fit on tne door panel.
