"I recently bought a 2010 X5 with the standard audio system and obviously I am not satisfied with the sound. I am considering the stage 1 upgrade but I have a few questions before purchasing.
1. How hard is it to install the speakers myself? It's been a while since I have messed with car audio and I didn't touch my 06 Audi since I was scared to break something.
2. I have a mono amp and a sub that I want to add. Does the factory radio have the ability to accept the amp?
3. What is the brand of the speakers BSW uses?
4. Is there a stage 2 for the newer X5? If so, what type of speakers and what is the cost? I didn't see a stage 2 available on the website"
Jamze132, I have same questions :-)
Just purchased 2010 x5 and base system quality is very dissatisfying. I've had a base system in my 2003 745i and was under impression that it is not that perfect , but audio quality on the x5 is much worse. Looking for upgrade options and first one I found is BSW...
Have you ever installed their upgrade? If so - can you share your experience please? Any other options? Thank you very much in advance...
