Does anyone know of any good aftermarket speakers that will replace the standard front speakers in an E30 without having to adjust anything.

Thanks

I have a lot of good info for you, but answer me first:

1. Do you have the premium stereo? Meaning your sail panels (the corner of the front window, beside the side view mirror) have the tweeter pods in them?

2. What headunit are you running or planning to run? Any additional amps?

No I haven't got the tweeter's in the sail panel so I ain't got the premium stereo.

At the moment I am installing a JVC Chameleon head unit (4x50watt) and am planning to put 6x9's in the rear parcel shelf. It's the front speakers I'm not sure about. I will probably put an amp in some time later because I have alot of other things to do to the car.

I highly suggest picking up a set of the panels from someone. They will really help with the imaging and placement of the high notes.

Once that's done, go for a nice set of components. Internal amps suck ass, so get a set that can handle some real power for when you pick up an amp later. Check out the MB Quart stuff, DSE 213 or RCE 213. Infinity stuff is also good for the money, the 5000CS or 50.5CS. I personally have a thing for Focal components, but the prices start to get high there. Check out the 4 models I posted and see if they're what you're looking for, I'm betting they'll be more than enough for what you're looking at creating.

Oh, and I also have a JVC deck. It's fine, but I'll be going to an Alpine one of these days.
