Hey,
Id like harder hitting bass, deeper, but not the CUSTOM $1,000 set up. I want something easy to install and not very expensive but gives good bass. Thanks.

Thanks for the previous post.

Can I have a little more info on the dual 10's inside the cabin? (replacing the old speakers) I think that is what you were talking about. Would I need another amp for those 2 subs? That sounds like a better way to go. Thanks

It sounds like you don\'t have DSP.

Do one of the following:

* Find a local E39 owner with an upgraded stereo and listen to it, if you would tell us where you live, someone may volunteer. If you like the bass and the price is right, just mimic it (same equipment, same installer, etc.)

* Find a local stereo installer with experience with the E39 and see what they recommend. Make sure they understand that the headunit has 10V-11V outputs and is balanced, not unbalanced - read jvr530\'s tales of woe to get more info.

$500 should get you good bass, $1000 should have your mirror shaking.

Thanks Bill,
I'll look around at some local shops but I don't think that they have any experience with E39's or BMW's. Thanks a lot.

Bill,

Can you define "way bitchin'?". Seriously,

1. I just purchased a '99 540i 6speed over the weekend. It has gobs of power, but a so so factory audio setup (BMW Business Radio, cassette in head unit, wiring for trunk mounted CD changer). So, guru, what do you recommend? FYI, our weekend fun car is a '73 BMW 2002. I had the p.o.s. audio stuff ripped out and replaced it with a very nice combo: Clarion head unit, Soundsteam amp, MTX tube sub, infinity speakers.

2. I also recently purchased a 2000 323i for my son (first car). It has a stock radio (BMW Business CD), and wiring for a changer in the trunk. I think it sounds much better than the stock set-up in my 540. What would you do to enhance the kid's car, without going overboard?

My guess is you have prior threads listing stuff you have done, since you obviously take some measure of pride in your car. I just don't know where to find it. I am more of a regular on the '02 message board. This is my first visit to this one. Any suggestions you can offer would be deeply appreciated.
