I need your guys help

I have a 325i e90 sedan. I have the base speakers(none logic 7). I am talking about 2 tweeters, 2 door speakers, 2 under seat subs, and 2 2 way speakers ont he rear deck for a total of 10.

How can I upgrade these? As in get ones that sound wayy better that fit in the OEM holes? I dont want anything non-factory looking to show. I just want incredible sound..

Well with a budget that low there isn't much you could do. I'd suggest getting a four channel amp and replacing the front door speakers and the underseat subs and using the four channel amp to power them, but that would be more than a few hundred dollars.

List of links

http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=365866

One of the threads in the link has a list of speakers is the one
that says list of speakers also there is a lot of general knowledge .

For prices there are a number of sources look at woofersetc.com
you can get a general idea of how much this stuff costs .
I would look to VP Electricity and/or Technic to deliver a total solution
some of the parts require mounting brackets, harnesses,machining
or shims that can be supplied by them.

You are probably looking at least 1k in parts to put together something that
sounds a lot better. You can't just do the speakers the OEM amp is pretty wimpy.

If you have tweeters then I think you have the Hifi system? - that would mean you would have a stock amp in the boot? Correct me if i am wrong guys?

If thats the case with a small budget might be worth going with the Alpine retrofit kit?

Few hundread dollars isnt going to get you much quality components in my eyes. What are you after in terms of a stereo anways? little bit louder? more base? are you fussy with your sound?
