Just bought my E91 LCI. Love the engine, but noticed that my previous 22 year old Toyota has better sound. WTF
My question is how to find out what parts is needed to upgrade to HIFI sound. Car have underneath spec.

Suggest a 6 channel amp/dsp and drop in three way speaker kit that covers the doors a and floors.
This is probably one of the most asked questions on this board there are
a lot of threads on this .

The following is the most comprehensive link on the subject.

Parts may varry according to taste and budget.

Dsp/amp will flatten the curve but recording the head unit to Hi Fi is more pro.
Can't comment on the Nav unit there are more variations in Europe than here.

here's what I did ... not saying "IT's the perfect answer but it does work for me".

* added tweeters to the window sills
* added bavsound to the door speakers and back speakers
* added 10" sub and amp.

To me, it sounds amazing. To sound perfect, I would need to upgrade stereo unit.

Recently did an upgrade relatively on the cheap side for my 2011 with base audio. Got individual audio speakers used off eBay for ~70 for the pair plus tweeters. The tweeters ended up not fitting so the shop I used for the install had bavsound tweeters in stock, swapped them in for ~80 bucks. Used F15 HK underseats (used like 50 bucks for the pair on eBay, came in bavsound boxes interestingly enough) , kept the stock rears powered off headunit for fill, swapped the headunit with an Eonon model and added a backup camera. Powered it all with a JL RD400/4 I got refurb for 200, and used the technic harness. It sounds really good. Good response at all levels, good staging, everything is loud and clear Eventually I'll get an enclosure for the trunk and add a mono amp for a sub, but that's just gonna be bonus for later.
