F11 base audio speaker upgrade

Recommended Posts

Hi all

I'm planning to upgrade my speakers, am on a budget and these are the cheapest BMW specific components I can find:

Anyone got any experience of this brand? 

Think I'm going to take the plunge and buy a set for the front doors.

My issue is with the rears - in the F11 they are in the roof and I'm not sure how much room there is in the housings. I've seen a couple of threads that seemed to suggest that only shallow mount speakers will fit. 

So my question is:  will a set of normal coaxials fit in the back of the F11? Something like this maybe:

Thanks in advance gents

Adam

Do you have the base system? If so, you'll need to buy some different covers for the tweeters.

I have the MB Quart speakers that are excellent but I also fitted an amp to get the most out of them.

The set you have seen doesn't upgrade the underseat subwoofer so the bass will stay the same. I did find that adding a tweeter made a huge difference to the clarity of the sound though.

There is a thread of my install on here.

Cheers for the advice, I'll take a look at your install thread.

I've ordered a set of the tweeter covers so think I've got that covered. Plan is to upgrade the subs at a later date when funds allow. 

Do you have an F11? If so, any advice on the size of the rear speakers?

I have an F11 but I didn't touch the rear speakers. For me, they just reinforce the sound for the rear passengers (and output the reversing sensor noise when reversing).

I think MB Quart do coaxials that fit the rear. If you found out the dimensions of those, it may give you an idea of what you can fit.

I started with the base system in my f11. I upgraded the subs and mids to mbquart. Tweeter installed and room for a small amp behind the radio facia... sounds much much better!
