So i spend some time demo it. Well.... i know i don't have audiophile ear. But the sound quality as far as i can tell are slightly better than the junk speaker bmw gave us. The tech then assure me that it gonna sound much better when it install in the car. Should i buy it? Have anyone here have heard or have this setup in their car, how was it?

Focal K2 Power 100KRS (4mid-4tweeter)
JL Audio XD700/5
JL Audio CS112RG-W3v3
JL Audio CL441dsp CleanSweep

PS: I will keep this post update/ review when i do the upgrade.

- code unit to HiFi
- Alpine PXE-H800 DSP
- Arc Mini KS 125.4 amps (2)
- MusicarNW 12" sub enclosure with Arc Mini KS 500.1 amp
- Leave 4" OEM speakers in place but replace OEM center speaker with a DLS 224 coaxial.

That should be $2600 or less, before install.

- replace underseats woofers with Jehnerts XE-200
- replace center speaker with DLS 224 coaxial
- MusicarNW 12" sub enclosure
- RF P400-2 (2) amps

That should be $1600 or less, before install.
