Mein Auto:
new system

I've posted on here about my amp being fried before, and I'm torn between getting a new BMW amp which is a good pretty penny, and would cost about the same to just get a new system in all.. and I don't know what I should do. (I know nothing about cars honestly) so I don't know if a new system would even work in it. I know that the car is kinda funny about what gets put in it. Like when my amp was fried, my convertible top wouldn't go down or my air conditioner wouldn't work... and all I had to do was unplug the amp.

so I don't know if just a new system would affect these things help please

I know I'll be faced with this at some point and will be considering my options as well. The following may be things to consider. How many miles on the car? How often garaged? Are interior pieces beginning to break off? Do you have the HiFi system?

If a fair amount of mikes, other things in the chain may be going next. If interrupt pieces are drying up and beginning to crack and break, this may be the case with the speakers approaching a dried out state as well and may need to be replaced. If you have the HiFi system and things look great otherwise, a new aftermarket system will likely not sound as nice without really spending some $$$ on it. The HiFi system is also tougher to make work with other decks, amps, etc. which makes the transition tougher. If not HiFi, more options are available as far as quick or low cost fixes go. Hope this helps.
