What kind of speakers and subs sound the best and fit the best for a 2004 330 coupe? Im thinking of JL audio 10W7's or some soundstream T210's or T212's? How are these subs and how much would a good system with these speakers cost?

In my 2001 330ci, I have the a/d/s 345is components in front, 2 a/d/s 310rs 2 subs and 2 rockford fosgate amps. When I got my 2003 540 4 months ago, I installed diamond audio hex series components, diamond audio coax and 2 jl audio amps. My subs are jl audio 10w6; I am very impressed with them. I think the w7 needs a lot of space; whiule the w6 are for more compact boxes. Trunk space is important to me. It's your call on how much trunk space you are willing to sacrifice. For me, I wouldn't change anything on my setup.

i am setup to put in MB Quarts in the front, and JL stealthboxes in the rear deck for bass. But i am not sure of leaving out the rear fill speakers, i wish i could convince myself i don't need them. When i drive around with the current HK system, i fade back and forth with the front rear speakers; sometimes it adds to have the rears and sometimes not
I am considering giving up the trunk and going with a 12 inch Jl sub

Did you mount the amps on the back of the seats or the rear deck?
My installer warns against putting amps upside down due to heat, but wants to put in a false enclosure between the rear seat and the sub box, which to me is also worrisome
Thoughts ? :)

That is the way to go IMO :thumbup: As long as there is enough air space in case of heating up.

Very Nice setup, and i really appreciate the pictures!
Are the amps mounted on the back of your sub box, or is it a seperate board?
Do you have a pic inside the trunk of the sub?

Thanks again !
Where did you buy the sub box carpet to match the trunk ?
Is the black surrounding the sub plexiglass ?

Not sure where the carpet came from, the installer had it already. The inside of the box is painted black (it is made of mdf) the face of the box is the only plexigalss :bigpimp:
