Where are the speakers???
 
We have the premium sound package on our GT which is supposed to have 16 speakers. For the life of me I can only find 12 of them. (Front window pillar, front door, 2 in the rear door, rear deck all x2 for 10 plus the two subs under the front seats makes 12.)

Any idea where the other four are?

TIA

Thanks. I forgot the dash speaker (but I would only have counted that as one anyway) and it is good to know about the rear subs. I guess that is why people rav about the sound when watching a movie using the rear seat entertainment system.

FWIW

i had the sound in my car set by the guy that does all the sound systems for the grateful dead....if i get a chance i will send you the settings... made an unbelievable difference in the sound for all passengers and drivers... pretty simple settings of the eq and other tone settings...sounds perfect for all types of music...

I have an old equalizer that comes with a white noise generator and a calibrated microphone...it really did make a big difference in how stereo sounded in the room, and it similarly, it should help in a car. While some would scoff, the Bose system I have comes with a set of binaural microphones and a program where you can set up up to five 'sweet spots' in a room...it, too, makes a difference.

Now, why BMW doesn't set the default to a nice balanced sound levels for us is the real mystery! Then, the only adjustments would be for personal hearing anomalies.

I would really appreciate that. I started to look at the audio settings and it made my head swim. (My last "car" was a Ford F-150 with base and treble controls...)

i will pull the settings this weekend and get the to you....The head of the grateful dead sound board was in NY to set the sound for radio city music hall and i called in a favor.. He literally spent over an hour doing it... finding the balance that made the entire car sound great with a little bias to the drive, (had to be biased somewhere)....

The best thing i ever had in a car is in my porsche where you can set the sound to be optimized for the drive, the passenger or both... there is a very noticeable difference when you switch...

did these setting ever get posted?
I used the setting posted on the F10 area and those helped a ton.
I would be very interested in these to see the difference and see if I can crank it up even more.
