  1. Hi guys, just wanted to share my recent audio upgrade completed today. I bought an F10, 520D recently and as we all know the OEM speakers are not the best. I start searching for compatible speakers and found the usual suspects, Focal IFBMW, MTX, Bavsound stage one, Match, ESX, Harman Kardon etc. I am very price conscious and usually search for days until I am settling for something and in this case, I focused my attention towards the Focal range as I like the brand and had 135VR's and 165VR's in one of my previous BMW E46 coupe. It was out of discussion paying £5 - 600 for the IFBMW and as I wanted to have high-quality sound for the best price I started to look for 4" Focal speakers. I found quite a few and the interesting thing is they are not advertised as compatible with BMW, I am sure they will put the price up if they will.... I bought a pair of these for the back https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Focal-AUDITOR-R-100C-4-10cm-2-Way-Car-Coaxial-Van-Door-Dash-Speakers-240W/262351114177?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 And a pair of these for the front https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Focal-Integration-ISC100-4-10cm-2-Way-Coaxial-Car-Speakers-200W-Total-Power/401093581124?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 As well 2 pairs of these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/10cm-4-Front-Rear-Door-Speaker-Adaptor-For-BMW-X3-2007-Onwards/351735857820?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649 As well you will need 4 x 61138373583 and 8 x 61130006664 from BMW for a neat setup. The result is, to say the least, impressive with very clear midrange and crystal clear highs. The Integration speakers in the front have a rotary tweeter which you can adjust to face the driver and raise the soundstage and you really have the impression that the sound is coming from the pillars. All in all, for £160 all in I find it very hard to believe that there is a better solution to upgrade your sound system to match this setup and wanted to share with you all, and believe me you will not regret it!

    BMW E60 Standard audio

    Bit of a risky thing but thought I'd pass my findings on to all, I've been doing a little project on the audio system in my 5 series, separate thread already on here, however I have ordered a direct replacement for the rear shelf speakers but they don't come for a week so today being impatient I decided to connect the standard poverty rear shelf speakers to my amplifier !!! ( don't judge ) the results are astounding my god the clarity and power they are taking is unreal !!! Probably going to now do 2 things 1st save myself £145 and cancel the components I've ordered and the second is leave the standard ones connected, does leave me with the question though if the speakers can actually handle the amount of power I'm putting through them why have BMW put such shite power through them in the first place as trust me these things are handling a beating and sound superb !!!

    How many speakers does my 520ED have, where are they, and is the big black mesh-type thing on the dashboard a speaker as well? 2011 model. THANKS GUYS!!!!!
  4. I've decided that the Alpine 150w 4x6 speakers are not really cutting it for me and I'm going to replace them with something else all-round. Can anyone recommend some good replacements? I know there are a few options out there but does anyone have good / bad experiences with a certain brand or model? Ta!

    Crackling speakers?

    Put a couple of Cd's in the CD changer today to play around with the sound and the audio sounded horrible and crackly. I didnt have the engine on and actually after listening to a few songs I went to start the car and the battery was dead (as it has been sat in the garege for a week). Is this due to the battery being flat or something to do with the changer/speakers? Any suggestions? Ta.
  6. Hi guys, I have a 57 plate e60 lci with standard radio, also i have door speakers in front door panel, 2 tweeters (one in each front door), 2 speakers in rear shelf, 1 centre speaker (above the screen on dash) and 2 subwoofers under the front passenger seat. (i think thats all of them!) Despite having so many speakers the sound quality out of them is awful! What do you guys recommend I should do to make the sound quality better without splashing out daft money! I have seen people of various forums buy a Blankpunt PnP amp, the one everyone goes on about is discontinued though. Also if I bought a PnP amp would I need to upgrade the speakers around the car aswell, or could I leave the original ones in? Cheers guys
