Need some Expert Help !!!

Guys i need help choosing a system for my BMW E39, I have 4 Factory Bose 5.25 inch speakers and Tweeters installed inside my doors . Is there any possible way to amplify them without changing the Speakers or Tweeters because im on a tight budget and dont want to go through all that mess ?

Next Thing is that i need help choosing subs and i want to know how much a custom box will cost , a box which is good for SPL dont care for SQ and is also good on Low end frequencies. I was thinking of buying 2 Alpine Type R's but for some reason i hate them and im a big fan of Premier and Cerwin Vega. Which subs should i get something which could be heard from 2 blocks away ?

Last is that Should i get a Kicker L7's enclosed factory system and amplify it with a Hifonics BXi2008D amp , says 2000 watts RMS @ 1ohm but its overrated and probably puts out around [email protected] 1 ohm . I want the subs to be good on Low end bass , which enclosure will be good and how much will it cost ?

I live in Kitchener Ontario and my target is SPL , Btw my budget is 1000 MAX including box or 1100 not more then that , and im buying everything online , except the box . Btw what do you think of RE Audio subs are they any good , heard there AMAZINGLY Loud , im getting 2 for 350 with shipping from a site is that a good deal ?

And i want something which gets noticed , serious Bass btw the wiring is already done in the car and there is no Power problems .

RE MT's are really good and loud, isnt the E39 a trunk car? with a big metal plate between the trunk and the pass compartment? as in total SPL killer.... i doubt they are MT's for that price and if they are then they are ****ed... or fake. Hifonics makes great amps and they dont over rate them, they just need really good voltage to make max power. $1000 isnt enough for a total pound the crap outta everything system, you may want to look at some used gear... you can get some damn big amps off this site for really good prices... big bass is about big power and good boxes, the box will make or break you when it comes to bass, as for the price of it that depends on who you have build it... or you can just build your own... a sheet of 3/4" thick MDF and the glue and screws to build it would total about $50....

Well , if not RE's can u tell me about some other subs and im also a fan of Hifonics lol. And i want to build a ported enclosure i could try to build it myself, if possible . I went on alot of sites such as www.onlinecarstereo.com or www.sonicelectronix.com and i have made up systems which cost me around 900$ without a sub box . First i made a system which had 2 Premier 3000 watt subs 1000 watt RMS each powered by a Hifonics BXI 2008D amp 2000 watts RMS @ 1 ohm and a Alpine Head unit , and it was around 840 or 850 including shipping .

Do you think those RE's can beat the alpine type r subs ?

Btw do you know any way i can sell me Pioneer AVHP-5700 DVD player , touch screen 6.5 inch in good condition bought it for 800$ with tax and wanna sell it for 550 or 500 and i also have a 1800 watt 4 channel amp in good good condition good for running one sub , company is called silence its a A/D/S extended brand name , great amp but not the type of loud i want , about 350 to 300$?

btw the trunk and the seat compartment is totally sealed , can u just tell me a good SPL system without thinking of the Budget ?

These are the RE's http://cgi.ebay.ca/2-RE-AUDIO-SE12-12-SE-SUBS-RESONANT-ENGINEERING-pair_W0QQitemZ150141342214QQihZ005QQcategoryZ18803 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

the RE's would kill type R's though type R's can get good and loud, dont by a pre fab box, pre fab is anti spl hahahah like really build your own or have someone build it for you... get good power at least 2000RMS and two 12" subs you'll hammer with a good box... there is actually a guy on this site selling two 10" DDs and a amp for $370 and the system would hammer ill find you the link, his stuff is brand new and it would be great for what you are looking for...

here buy this and have a crazy good box built and you'll pound!

Electrical is fine , because i have a nice battery and my E39's alternator is pretty big because its a BMW lol, the wiring is 4 gauge stinger pretty thick...

Btw are the DD subs loud SPL ???

And arent clarion amps crap ?

So if i buy the RE's they would kill the Alpines, btw did u see the link i posted , there RE SE somethin 12" 1000 watt RMS each i think im not sure ?

Yea the E39 does have a Ski Hatch ...
