Aftermarket Install '09 E90 335i
I finally upgraded my stereo. I ordered my car as a non logic-7 with I-drive as I knew I would get around to this eventually. First, I am stationed in Germany and sourced some parts locally. If you don't recognize some of the brands listed below, that is probably why.
Front components are Audio System, specifically for the 3-series
8" subs under the front seats are 2-ohm Earthquake SWS
Rear speakers are also Audio System specifically for the 3-series
There are two JL 10W6V2 subs in custom slit-ported boxes firing through the skisack
Signal processor/ frequency converter is a Helix AFC
Capacitor is a 50 farad hybrid by Rodek.
The components front and rear are powered by a Rockford Fosgate T600-4
The two 8" subs under the seat are powered by a Rockford Fosgate T400-2
The two JL subs are wired together for 1-ohm and powered by a Rockford Fosgate T1500-1bd with the bass remote wired in the armrest.
Is HOLY S!*T an impression? It should be. I was a little hesitant to use the Audio System components as I was unfamiliar with them, but wow. This system is probably overkill for 90% of the population, but it is very clear at even painful volumes. The staging and separation are fantastic, I could not be happier.
Everything was installed for stealth, so what you see in the trunk is actually covered by a false floor. The ski sack opening is covered with a piece of black acoustic fabric so you can't see into the trunk. The cabin of the car looks completely stock.
I realize that I have used up a large portion of my trunk and added somewhere in the neighborhood of 100-110 pounds of weight, but the car will still charge to the Vmax limiter. Hope you like it.
