I have just installed my Alpine head unit and 6 cd changer in the glove box
and would now like to upgrade the speakers in my E36 touring.
I have been looking but can't seem to find out how hard it is to replace the
front speakers (130mm or 5 1/4in) as I can see them right down far in the
footwells (perfect posistion!) behind the covers, but can't see how easily
they could be changed. There are tweeters in the doors but I would be happy
to just replace the 130mm with a
If anyone out there knows how to remove the covers etc I would be most
grateful as it looks a bit tricky and I don't have a hanes manual as yet.
Also if anyone could recomend any that work/fit well?
I'm not after monster sound (I may add an amp later though) just something
better than the screetchy standard ones.
I am also thinking about upgrading the 100mm rear ones (built into the
headlining) as well so if anyone has any suggestions for those as well?
Many thanks in advance,
Just done to the same sort of thing but to an E36 saloon.
For the rear speakers i just brought an 6x9 adaptor from Uplands Media which
lets the 6x9 sit below the space of the originals.
For the front u can buy better quality speakers of the same size, although I
have not yet done this.
To get the tweaters out you simple take the inside of the door of and the
tweaters unscrew from memory. With regards to the front speakers from memory
the cover just poped off. I think the whole outside covering just pops off.
hope some of that was helpful, also what head unit you got, as i am having
problems finding a decent head unit with 2+ outputs which is black and looks
good, as my curent pioneer silver split screen looks crap.
best of luck
