Hi,

Has anyone upgraded the standard speakers as fitted to the 325ci 2001 E46, with BMW Business Single CD + 6 disc in boot?

My sound is terrible, so I want to upgrade as much as possible, without needing to modify the car at all. Can anyone recommend any particular speaker brands / models which will fit straight in to the existing holes?

I assume there is no external amplifier on this model which could also be upgraded with out needing to run RCA's, power cables etc. etc.?

I've previously fitted Focal's and Soundstream Reference set up's in older cars which have sounded great, but they've always required a lot of cutting and fabrication of new brackets etc.

Thanks in advance!

Chris.

Alpine speakers will fit straight in. Model no. SXS - 1357 for the front with adaptors which are normally £15.00. In the rear adaptors again with SPE - 1302 will go straight in. Really depends what kind of sound you are looking for. Give Dynamic Sounds a call and ask for Peter he specialises in E46's.
