What are your thoughts of this upgrade?

Hey Everyone,


Looking to upgrade the speakers and amp's in my e93. The stock system is just not cutting it anymore. I have the professional hifi system with iDrive. Just wanted your thoughts on the following set up:

1 x JL Audio XD700/5 - http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro..._id/14888.html

2 x Earthquake 8" Woofers -

2 x JL Audio C3-525 5.25" Components ( Front & Coaxial for Rear )
http://caraudiosecurity.com/shop/pro..._id/14882.html

Wanted to know if you guys know of any further cables, harness i should be aware of?

Many Thanks

Rumel

I think you need a harness to go from the CIC to RCA cable.

In my opinion, I would install the following equipment:
Contact Technic for any shop supplies you may need.
