Rear Speaker making noises

The speaker in the back was acting uptoday (stock everything still)...its making this nasty irritating noise like its vibrating all over to the bass. Does it mean I need a new speaker or could there still be something done about it?)

If you were happy with the factory ones, almost anything aftermarket will blow you away.

I think E32's run 5.25's in the rear, same as E34. but I could be mistaken.

Hey thanks! I don't know if I'm going for the upgrade or just replacing that one. I'll keep you posted for sure either way bro.


KAPTION? Is that like all-way round speakers price? I'm guessing they must be a lot better than what I have either way. I'll figure out my expenses then figure out if Im going for the upgrade (will contact Paul Christians) or just replacing em (will contact Gamite).

I'm still trying to get my car repaired...does anyone have Charlie's #...I PM'ed him but no reply yet.

Either way, thanks guys...
JAK

I doubt your going to get any improvment in sound by upgrading the factory speakers and not running them off of a seperate amplifier.. usually the factory system doesn't have enough power to properly drive aftermarket speakers. Your best to stick with what you have unless your going to upgrade it all.
