    Hey guys.....new here! SQ lover here...

    Well, it's not really accurate to call myself an SQ lover, since I really don't have much setup in my car. My base is a 98 M3 4 door with the stock Harmon Kardon sound system.

    I blew one of the kick panel 5.25" speakers, and this spawned a whole phase.....car audio.

    I started with a set of Focal Polyglass components up front and disconnected the mid speaker in the door. All this ran on the stock AMP, This soon proved to be harsh and it all seem underpowered.

    I recently added an MB Quart RAA2400 amp to power my front components.

    Very simple start, but I'm getting somewhere!! As for the front setup, since I like to retain the stock look with the stock HU, I will change my line output converter to an EQL, and then perhaps moving to some tang band 6x9's in the rear deck powered by a mono amp.

    Glad to be here!

    if you still want the stock HU you can always look into the JL audio cleansweep. ive heard good things about it, but never used one or anything like that.

    nice car! got pics?

    very clean ride A+ for u. and if u want some good SQ head units without all the bling and lights look into Nakamichi.

    Re: Hey guys.....new here! SQ lover here...

    or just run the lc6 audiocontrol- the eql loc isn't as good as that...

    i'm running lc6 into clarion 5.1 processor dvh940/dvc920 combo so that i can retain my factory hu in my c43
