Ladies and gents,

Been doing a lot of research (search function) and have narrowed my system choices down considerably. What I am looking for is to keep OEM integration of the Nav, but upgrade the sound for about $800.

Specs on the car: 2006 330Ci convertible w/ HK & Nav

I am going to integrate the amp using one of Tecnhic's amp harnesses.

Basically, I am looking to execute a simply sway, and avoid chopping up the doors, etc. Any pros, cons or issues with any of the equipment passed please pass comments...

Front doors:
ID CTX-6.5cs - may be too deep for stock mounting
DLS Perf B6A
DLS Perf RS6A
MBQ PVI 216 - would probably start w/ tweets at -3db to avoid harshness
MBQ PVL 216 - silk tweets
MA SK 6 II - front runner right now good reviews
MA VK 6

Rear panels:
DA M341 4"
Co-axial (rec appreciated)
stock

sub-10" IB design through rear armrest pass through:
DLS OA10D
DLS W310D
ID ID10 D4 v3
ID CTX104
any other suggestions for 100-200

Amps: sold on JL XD line for perf/value
JL XD 600/6 w/ 2 ch bridged as req'd for subs
JL XD 700/5 - worth any more $ over 600/6?

My music taste sways to rock (Metallica, Avenged 7, Saliva, etc) but i appreciate detail over raw noise.

Myu wide (it's her car) listens to everything from Mraz to country to pop... i'm just looking for a system that she doesn't blow the speakers trying to listen to at reasonable volumes w/ the top down.

Thanks in advance, i'm new to the sport... everyone seems to like what they have but there is little hard data

whopper,
thanks for the reply... yes, i plan on mounting the 6.5"s in the factory door location... should have been specific. I am also considering a sound processor, but to be honest, not sure what that buys me vs the adjustability of the amp.
Thanks,
X

well, think i have narrowed it down some....

Front doors: DLS perf RS6A
Rear fill: stock or co-axial (turned way down)
Amp: JL XD 700/5
Sub: ID ID10 D4v3 or DLS OA10D

trying to decide if i need a H660 or similar processor.... any thoughts would be appreciated.

to be honest, rm6.2s are prob out of my budget for this project...
