Question E46 Component Speakers



I'm looking to replace the front door speakers in my 99 323i with new component speakers.

My understanding so far is that I can fit 5.25" or 6.5" speakers in there, provided the speaker has a shallow mounting depth.

Does anyone know the maximum mounting depth I can fit? Or any recommendation on which component speakers I should buy?

Yes, the stock front speakers are 3-way components...woofer, mid, and tweeter.

I'll be disconnecting the mid and just going with a 2-way component set.....but the door panel doesn't allow for a woofer that takes up too much space (mounting depth)....i'm hoping to find the maxiumum mounting depth.

I'm hoping 2" depth will be fine. Can anyone who's upgraded their E46 front speakers please post which speakers you used? I can use those specs.

Which speakers did you use on the M3 install?
