Default New system help

I posted this in general audio, and haven't received any response.

I am a new member to this forum, and need some guidance. I am a long time home audio buff, but haven't dabbled in car audio since I was a kid. I am trying to do a low budget setup on my '04 BMW 330 I sedan. I have a set of old MB Quart QM speakers 6 1/2 mid bass, and tweeters. I installed the mids in the lower front corner of the door. I know that common wisdom is that kicks are better, but I wasn't willing to give up the space for a proper dead pedal. I track the car occasionally. I can put the tweeters on the A pillar, if that's best. I have read that all cars are different, and understand that. I also realize that an automobile is far from the best environment for audio. My goal is as much as possible to gain a front stage. When I listen to Diana Krall she needs to be on the dash if possible. I would prefer to keep the tweeters low, and close to the dash, or at the top not in the middle where they are distracting. I can aim them wherever need be. My other questions are, about amps. I have an ADS PQ8, and a Kenwood 742. I also want to install a couple of Tang Band 6 1/2 subs firing through the center arm rest, sealed box. I listen to a set of Magnepan 3.3r's in my home rig, so I am not looking for cannon fire type bass. Do I have enough power? I am thinking about a Pioneer DEH80 to handle all the setup/crossover/eq. I also own a set of MB Quart discus 213 components to throw into the mix if they can help with my goals.

Thanks for any input!

My recommendation is to contact Musicar Northwest, and you can see their BMW audio packages on their web site. They specialize in your car. www.musicarnw.com, select BMW Audio on the left side

They don't have any info on an E 46. Besides, I am trying to do this relatively low budget.
