I'd been lurking on here for a while before even becoming a member in Oct. of last year.
I was hoping to gain enough knowledge by others experiences to build a "once and done" audio system for my BMW wagon.
Anyone reading this now is probably chuckling at the idea of once and done, as I have found that if you want to obtain the best possible sound (to your ears) then you will need to do your own experimenting and tinkering to achieve this goal. Every car is different and every detail about speaker placement, gain & crossover settings, component choice, plus a million more factors play a heavy role into what you will hear. Plus this is just a tiny bit addictive and I can't stop buying equipment to play with!
I thank you all for your insight on the subject and look forward to tuning and testing along side you.
