the new e30 audio electrical plz

i NEED to have music in my car. but not needing it to the point of entire overhauls with diesed sound systems amps and subwoofers.

basically. i just want the headunit to all 4 speakers...if that is possible.
the car doesnt have the stock amp was taken out. it had aftermarket wiring done with a cassette player attached to an 8 disc cd changer.

nd the previous owner wants his audio back so i had to strip everything out.
if the wiring were kept stock than that wouldnt be an issue at all, since i did it fine in the previous e30.


my picture attached will show u my idea in my head.

is that possible? just DIRECT connection to the speakers from the head unit?

yea thats how stereo systems usually work.

Weather or not your car already has wires from the deck to each speaker, who knows what the previous is, hopefully the wires are already there.

Worst case you would have to re-run the wires to each speaker.
You power, ground and power antena wires should still be there.

............depends on the head unit. IF it has a built in amp with front and rear speaker outputs, you are golden. Running new speaker wire from the head unit to your speakers (totally recommended on cars this old) is a snap.
