    Help me change my stock set up

    I'm looking at replacing my stock speakers and put a decent sub. I don't need trunk-shaking-bass. I want clarity, clean, with enough thump! My brother in law's rockford fosgate equied EVO X from factory sounds good enough for me! I have a 2006 M3 without harman kardon and it sounds terrible.

    Can somebody help me pick speakers for I don't know which are the best sounding speakers for right PRICE RANGE nor I have the resource and experience to listen and pick which one sounds good. I wouldn't want to spend more than $1k if I don't have to.

    Put recommendation for the brand/model and what price new/used should be! Thank you!

    FRONT - 6.5" component

    REAR - 6.5" component (cheap) or co-ax

    SUBS - someone's offering me a JL Stealthbox, two 8" free-air woofers for $250

    or should I stay with single 10"?

    AMP - 500/5?

    stay away from jl overpriced

    call boston acoustics up and get there gta-1105 direct for 150 shipped, i saved you a **** ton of money there lol

    boston acoustics gta-1105 - Google Search
    click on the first link you can buy it off their website

    then for a sub
    Sundown February Sale : "E" and "NeoPro" Series
    sundown audio has there e-10 on sale for 85 its a steal thing sounds amazing and can get low
    SSA Shop - Sundown Audio E8 sub woofer
    buy the sub through ssa and you get free shipping, you want dual 4

    most important thing is to get a custom box from @double 07 ; the box is the most important aspect of your sub stage and he is the best

    so down to components
    Incriminator Audio I Series 6.5" Components
    the best 120 and under component bar none

    if you are willing to spend a little more since i saved you so much on sub and amp
    CDT Audio CL-62 Component Set - Vertex Audio
    will blow you away

    CDT Audio ES-6CFX - Vertex Audio
    for your rear coax's these are an amazing deal. blow you away with built in crossovers

    Woah thanks for the rwply. How much does he usually charge, double 07 for the boxes. Components for the rear are a waste yeah? I will be keeping the oem unit with nav etc, keeping it oem look!

    Hey bud,

    So a good option for speakers would be to go with the CL-62 comps in the front. Thats $195 for the set. If thats to pricey then the IAs will work well. For the rears all you will need is a fill, no need for a component set. The ES-6CFX coaxials will work great, those are $100 for the pair. As for the amps there are a few different options. I would recommend putting in a 4 channel for the comps and coaxials and a mono amp for the sub. There are lots of different options for the subs. The sundowns are great. I can set you up with a package deal for everything you need minus the box for a good price. Pm me if you are interested.

    Is it necessary for 2 amps? I know thats better but i would like it to take minimal space. I would love stealth box specific for my bmw e46 coupe. If you can make me one specific let me know!

    I can't get a stealth box for you, but im sure a box builder can easily make a box that will fit you BMW. As for the amp, if your looking to do one amp to power it all its not going to be cheap. You will need a 5 channel of 6 channel amp. There are a few good options out there. Such as the PPI 6 channels.
