hifi audio upgrade

Hi all,

i am planning on upgrading my sound system from hifi system to either bavsound or bimmertech system. Any comments on which amp/speakers are best?
Also planning on doing it in steps. What would be the best bang for the buck to upgrade first, amp or stage 1 or underseat subs?

The BMW electronics are weak, so if improvements are to be made that's where to start. There's nothing wrong with the BMW speakers. Do a search, there's plenty of reading here on the subject.

Don't believe the marketing from those companies. BMW speakers are fine. The weak point in the BMW audio system is the underseat subs and their limited size boxes.

I did a very specific upgrade which turned out fantastic. My wife and friends thought that I had changed out the entire audio system.

I used Earthquake subs which are made to work great in the small BMW boxes along with an AudioControl LOC/amplifier to separately power them. A custom harness from Technicpnp made it easy to wire up.

I've written a lot of detail about my project if you search. I don't have the links handy. Good luck!
