yeah.... I don't know about Ultra, I've heard mixed stories from there.

A place that has worked on numerous high end car and know what they're doing is 12 Volt Car Audio and Security in Woodbridge. They're located (literally) beside Maranello Ferrari on Steeles. Talk to Sebastian or Dave.

It was really nice meeting all you guy's on Sunday.
Looking forward to some more cruizes. How about one more before we have to put our cars into hibernation?

Looks like I'm going to visit both 12 volt Car Audio, and Ultra Sound. Go with the one that I get a better vibe from.
Once audio's done, I'll post with some pics.
(No big ass sub box in the trunk. Too much wieght.)

Hey MPowerd, why don't you just remove the front wheel on your gizzer? You never seem to use it!

Well, some good audio products I have seen in bimmers are Focal, Eclipse, Nackamichi (sp?), etc.

Now If you replace the factory amplifier with a new stereo amplifier and amplify the speakers, you are going to notice a huge difference in the quality of the sound. Bass wise, get ride of those two stupid 6X9 subs in the rear. They rattle, and are majorly underpowered. My bro has a 2002 M3, he is having the same concerns as you. If you are looking just for gentle bass, but smooth sounding, Kicker makes a bass tube (8") sub and puts out amazingly decent sound. If you want to rattle your brains out 2 10"/12" in a bandpass box should be plenty.
My friend has an audi A4 and has two 10" eclipse's in a sealed box and it sounds nice. The key is to have the bass gain control on your deck or a knob.
cheers
jay
