Rodrigo,

I have to agree with Glowrider. I would go aftermarket if I were you.


p.s: você é Brasileiro? Fala português? Me mande um PM.

Regards,

Tomaso

Sim...
Na verdade só postei essa dúvida porque gosto de pesquisar sobre carros e som p/ carros e queria informações sobre o sistema de som da M3 (potência, número de alto-falantes, a disposição dos mesmos dentro do veículo e, se possível, fotos).
Tenho facínio pela marca BMW e, em especial, o modelo M3...
se puder ajudar com essas informações...



ps.: acho que nem poderia ter escrito tudo isso em português... nem li as regras desse fórum...
se puder traduzir isso p/ o inglês eu colo no tópico que vou abrir no Aftermarket (já abri um lá, mas sumiu).
Obrigado

As an audio enthusiast, I'm yet to see/hear a decent factory system as well. Therefore, I've passed on the HK (despite my dealer's surprise), and currently working on a simple but decent (you know what I mean) aftermarket solution.

It consists of the following components:

1) Nav system and the business professional radio that comes with it (I like it's looks, it's simple and large controls and the steering wheel connection)

2) MB-Quart PSD 216 6.5" component speakers (replaces the front door stock speakers)

3) JL Audio SB-B-3SER99/8IB4 Stealthbox that is designed for the E46 and consists of two 8" subwoofers in infinite baffle configuration (replaces the rear stock speakers).

4) Soundstream Rubicon II 550.5 five channel amplifier (that goes under the carpet in the trunk next to the mobile repair kit)


I have it all installed today except for the front speakers. I will be able to post more details (as to why I have chosen these components and how do they fit) and some pictures in a week or so.

Regards,

Ufuk

The same in Turkey. IMO it is not bad for average stereo lover like me.

As an audiophile, I found the stock system borderline offensive Heh, I'm using my stereo from my range rover in my car right now...MB Quart Q series speakers front and back, mb quart tweeters, jbl power series subs (2x 12", big sound:P), two alpine amps pumping out over 3500 watts of power (close to 1000 watts in each sub!!!), Alpine CVA 1005 head unit, alpine nav, ps2, ipod hardwired in, xm radio....the list goes on....But, with all the audio, you add some weight to the car, that's why I have everything as a direct bolt in...When I go to the track, everything pops right out, and I have a full on cruiser
