thx paul,

Will a 15" sub be too much for the factory speakers?? I.E will they be overpowered by the base?

Anyone have a 15" sub in there car.

What I was thinking was a 15 rockford fosgate with a RF mono amp.

what do you guys think?

If you want, i have a barely used (honestly less than a month) RF 12' P3 sub in box, with the matching 2 channel amp. This thing pounded in my 325i, i just have no real use for a system. I'm letting them go for $500 FIRM.

If your interested, lemme know!

Do you have the sub already in a box?? What is the model for the amp?? Did you get the extended warranty??

I love rockford, I have a system in my winter ride all rockford....they always pound!

Ya... i got it just because my buddy convinced me to get a system and at the time i was feelin rich. Now i need the cash to try to get a winter beater and i'm more than happy that my new E36 has the HK system in it and thats enough for me. The sub is already in the box. The model for the amp is P3001, i believe its last seasons model. This thing is awesome, and it was hardly ever used. I screwed up the when i did the remote wiring, so when i wanted to turn on the system, i had to do it through the trunk. As a result it was in my car for just over a month, but i rarely used it.

As for the extended warrenty... i didn't get it, it was from best buy, i got screwed over by bestbuy/futureshop warrenty before, so i didn't bother getting it, it MIGHT still have the factory warrenty on it, but i dunno for sure!

If you have all the wiring in you car already we can easily test it out in your car!

Idea

Check ebay, good deals on brand new sub/s and amps with warrantys.

All depends on your price range but some brands,
kicker, memphis, JL? my favorites

I just bought a deck from ebay and it seemed to be a very good price and shipping was about $30 USPS.

now I'm looking at some MB Quart speakers, also a good deal and shipping is about $25 USPS.

So long as you dont ship via UPS the deals stay good. IMO
