    Need your guys' advice on a system upgrade...

    Well, its time for me to swap out the OEM speakers as even the factory upgraded speakers sound horrible (Harmon Kardon system in a BMW e46 '02 330). I've done my research by exhausting the search feature, gathering feedback on various component speakers, amps and subs. I am looking to purchase a decent set of front component, a good amp and any decent rear 6.5" coax's until I decide to get a sub. What do you guys think of this setup:

    MB Quart RCE 213 front Component (I decided to start 'lower' because I don't have an 'ear' for tuning yet, although I thought about Diamond s600)


    Soundstream VGA 800.5 amp
    *edit: Would I be better off getting a 450/4 amp (whats a good brand? soundstream should suffice?), and then buying a separate amp for the sub(s) in the future?

    Any 6.5 coax (probably MB quart, or whatever sounds good and is cheap...for 'rear fill')


    And any of you guys ever deal with sonicelectronix.com? They got some good deals but I'm kinda wary of going with online retailers. Then again, paying near retail at the 'mortar and brick' local dealers will get really expensive, and its bad enough I have to pay them to install everything.

    Thanks guys.
