Bmw e91 2006 basic stereo uppgrade

Hello. Im new on this forum and i hope for some advise on stereo uppgrade.
I have the stock basic system with 6 speakers and proff HU.
But now i want 9 speakers including the center speaker. So i need tecnical harness ? where to buy ?
and maybe dsp? or recoding the HU ?. I have read many topic"s on uppgrading the stereo. But i cant find all info i want.
I need the steel ring every one have?the one in the front doors Where to buy?
Ms-8 or bit one audioson ?
If i buy the earthquake 8" do they need spacers under the seet? Or is it only the kiker and others that need that?
When i buy the technical harness does it mount easy?

Regards max

I did an install in an 06 e91 and documented it.

Most of what you need to know is in this
link.

If you go to the above thread an look at entry 4 you will find this

CTuna's HiFi Install DIY w MusicarNW Kit
My E91 VP Kit install.pdf I know you said you have
a base system but it may be of some use.

The MusicarNW kits contain everything you need to install
the system.But they may be hard to get in Norway.

I don't think anybody makes the mount rings

I don't think anybody makes the mount rings anymore.(that sells them
a la cart)
You can get them in a VP Kit but he doesn't sell them separately
anymore. Which means you have to Fab them yourself . I think
Mob 17 just went through this maybe he has a template.
So Technic are you making the rings now?

The mounting rings that I sell are in plastic. You would need at least a pair for the front speakers. I can provide the center channel cable and OEM trim as well.

Do a search of all threads started by me and concentrate in those that the title begins with "Notes on a...". Those will give you my ideas of how to improve your OEM sound system.

It is very tiresome to be repeating the same tips and notes especially when there are plenty of threads explaining all those in detail.

No problem, I understand its abit frustrating, I've been through most of them now and have got a good understanding of what I want to do, it does seem to be the same old question tho and that's getting the rite harness.
