BMW e46 Stereo System

Here we have a BMW 325ci that we did a complete stereo system upgrade on for a customer from DesPlaines Illinois. We had previously installed a Dynavin “plug-n-play” navigation radio for him that he bought online, but after realizing all the shortcomings that unit had he decided to take that unit out and we installed Kenwoods flagship navigation system , the DNX9990HD. Now that we established a solid foundation for a source unit, we upgraded his front door speakers with Hertz Hi-Energy 6.5″ component speakers, changed out the rear deck speakers with some Kenwood Excelon speakers,  installed a custom fiberglass subwoofer enclosure that fit discretely in the right rear corner of trunk and we loaded that with a Kenwood Excelon 10″ subwoofer, and then we added a Kenwood Excelon XR-5s  5 channel digital amplifier to power everything. This was a fine example of a well thought out system that installed with very little modifications to the vehicle itself. The new door speakers fit neatly behind all the factory speaker grills, the rear speakers retained the original BMW speaker grills, the amp was mounted in the trunk where the original BMW amplifier was mounted, and the new subwoofer enclosure was wrapped in carpet to match the original BMW trunk liner material.
In the end we had a great sounding stereo that the customer was extremely happy with!
