This weekend we started working on my door pocket inserts for my M3. I wanted something that would drop in with no panel modification. I am more than pleased how its going so far.

Looks good but are you planning on putting a 5x7 in there I would recommend a 6 1/2 or 5 1/4 for sq.

I am going for max SQ and wanted specifically the 5x7 to mate it with my Image Horns. Not to mention the person helping me with the install was the designer of Image Dynamics.

Update on the system. So i installed a mObridge DA1 and wired it into the bit one. Sound wise it sounds really good. No where near as sweet as the AGW+ was in my 335 but its the best i'll get in the M3. Of course, there are issues. I am really hoping its a defective unit. After the car goes to sleep when you turn the car back on the car goes into a boot loop where the idrive will not boot. The only way to get it to boot is to power the DA1 off for 10 seconds then back on. After that it works fine again until the next time it goes to sleep. On the tuning side, the midbass and subs are starting to break in and are sounding better and better. Soundstage is wide and out towards front of the car. its amazine how well the horns image.



This is what the unit is doing...

Finished the trunk. Here is a shot of the subs without the grills and the mess in the trunk.

Well ive been doing something's and changing things every weekend. Ive tried over 10 different sets of amps. For now, my custom sealed door panel inserts for the 5x7" midbass are now gone. We remade them and ported the enclosures. The added low output is insane. Right now, im trying a pair of Cadence amps. The power of these amps is unreal. Again im just trying things out. I just ordered a Zed Audio 6ch amp and 2 sub amps, so we will see how those amps turn out. Here are some pics.

Here are some pics of the door ported door panel

Been experimenting with some Cadence amps. The ZRS amps sound GREAT.
