You might want to get some double-side tape and experiment with tweeter placement before you do this. I had a 320i back in the day, that was used by a local audio shop as a demo vehicle. Tweeter placement for proper sound stage is critical in a car enviroment as you're already sitting closer to one side. High frequency is very directional. We found if you aim the tweeters across the car at the head on the opposite side, it widened the soundstage and improved the seperation. In the vents gave us more of a left and right seat bias. Firing them into the windshield made them harsh, I uninstall the Boston FX3's and went back to the stock speakers in my 300. Those stock 3 1/2's are better that you would think if you roll them off at around 5000 hz and pass the high freq on to a good tweeter! I'm experimenting with some MB Quarts tweeters now. As of now the ideal placement seem to be either mounted on the pillars by the windshield cross fired or surface mounted on top of the stock grills angled for cross-fire.
Most people can just replace the stock dash speakers with some of the 3 1/2" 2way's on the market and be perfectly happy.
QUALITY sub-base is easy in this car. ONE JL Audio 10w6 will fill the cabin with solid, undistorted base notes without eating up trunk space !
I'm at an age in my life where quality of sound is more important that alot of distorted volume
Stop by one of your BETTER local car audio shops and ask them for some suggestions.
Don't commit till you experiment !
The speakers I got a while ago from a friend. I believe they retail about $750 on the internet. I am going to use a JL Audio 450/4 this amp is rated at 150X2 and 75X2 I am planning on using the 150X2 for the dynaudio I don't know if it will be enough but will find out shortly.scandaloustrick said:I'm a bit curious what you paid for the 3 way dynaudio set???
I am also a bit curious what Amp your going to run these powerful top-notch components.
I picked up a the QSD line from mb quart, but recently at a car sound off in chicago, i noticed that the dynaudio stuff was tweeking out some high SQ stats...
just a bit curious, i still have about a month to do some exchanges...
Ya got my mouth watering !shaggy said:10w7 with JL Audio 500/1
