subs

  1. General BMW Questions
    This might become a huge debate on the matter, but i'll try to keep it short and simple. Basically I'm trying to get the max power out of my setup and having a hard time deciding how to wire my subs up to either 2 ohm load or 4 ohm load. I wont list the brand of subs/amps im using because that...
  2. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    So I looked at a forum about using a Line out converter to get RCA to the amp for subs. Everything went good and the subs in my trunk sound okay but the underseat subwoofers don't work anymore on either side. What could have gone wrong? I didn't slice the wires I took off the insulation to...
  3. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    Hey so I just got this 95' E38, the rear deck speakers sound horrible. My car came with the factory DPS and I've researched that the 4 rear deck speakers are subs or woofers when the DSP comes with the car ? I was on Crutch Field .com asking for help on the live chat there and they said they...

    Car was starting and running fine. i ran my subs with my car not started (stupid) and now my car wont start even after recharging the battery. wont even start with a jump. all electric in the car works fine but when i turn the key all the way all i get is "click, click, click" . The car can be...

    Yes I have searched, but I can't find any complete answers. So far, I haven't been able to find any working setup with all 8 channels still working with an aftermarket headunit. Also to add upon that, I want this to be powered by an amp(s) and have found subs the size of the rear deck speakers...
  6. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    Can someone please tell me how to unplug just the drivers side sub under the seat? There are many wires under there... I've tried researching but can't get a definite answer. Thinking about going with the Earthquake's everyone is talking about.

    Whenever I plug in my iPod into my bmw and play music, and high pitched noise comes out, even when I raise the volume of the iPod. Do all bows have this, it's not the cable because I bought 2 brand new cables and they both had the same problem. Will I need to be different speakers, radio, input...

  12. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    so I've installed a sub and amp into my trunk of my 06 m5 and have taken the speaker signal out of the two rear speakers. The problem I have now is it seems only to pick up mid bass. My stock speaker system has the subs installed under the rear seats which leads me to believe that the signals...
  13. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey all..I am new to the BMW world but have to admit that I LOVE my ride.. Here's the low-down and my question for anyone with info... I have an 06 530XI with Logic 7 sound system. I'd like to throw in my 2 cadence 12"s and Ultradrive amp into the trunk to really make my system sweet. Is this...
  14. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    How should I go about doing this. I have the stock system. My car came with a year of Sirius radio, so I might have premium sound. Can I just connect subs to the stock amplifier? What size and how many subs should I do. Two 12" subs would be good, but I'm thinking two 10" would be a safer bet...
  15. E82 / E87 / E88 / F20 1 Series (2008 - 2014)
    This stereo sounds amazing from inside the car, Logic7, treble and bass are responsive and make my driving experience so much better than my previous ride... but here is the issue, has anyone else heard this? The subs sound horrible from outside the car, like they are over extending or...

    Hey, I'm trying to wire in my soundsystem on my 1990 5.25i and im having trouble finding a way from the battery directly inside the car. Does anyone know the sweet spot? On a side note: I just bought new rims for the same car. I bought a set of 17" rims off a Z series. Anyone know what I'll...
  19. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    Hey this is my first post on bimmerfest I really want to get some more bass for my e39 wagon I've done a little research and I feel like kicker L5 or L7s are something I want. My price range is about 500-600 bucks for complete set up so not super high end. I saw this sale online...
