So as i'm sure many of you find, the base audio on the E60/1 is not to my liking, the low sound stage, muddy vocals ect. So I've started to go about upgrading the audio in my LCI Touring. I didn't want to go crazy and I don't listen to loud music so just looking for better quality with budget in mind. After reading a number of posts I realized that the UK stereo system is very limited and you really need a processor to get much out of it and without wanting to get additional amps after, the JBL MS-8 was the logical choice. I did know you can re-code the head unit to Hi-Fi which puts out a full signal meaning you don't need a processor but from what I heard, the MS-8 was still a good option and unless you want huge volume, the built in 8 channel amp was also one of the best cost options out there. For the speakers, I just wanted to upgrade the fronts and was looking for some Focal units and some adapter rings and to keep the under floor mid-base woofers since they aren't apparently too bad however I came across a BNIB set of MB Quart 200.3 components that offer plug and play for the E60 and include replacement mid-bass as well so I could upgrade from the stock 6.5" to 8" so seemed like a no brainer for the price. I'm also going to be making my own PnP loom so to speak since I will be changing the setup along the way it didn't seem to make sense to buy one So my system will evolve in this way hopefully: MB Quart 200.3 install on stock base stereo configuration MS-8 integration using stock stereo feeds and cable runs Separate channels for underseat woofers Re-code headunit to Hi-Fi and re-setup MS-8 to match Possibly add in a centre speaker for Logic 7.
