The new premium system has had the rear tweeters deleted.

The above link contains the details
- rear tweeter deletions in 2011 in premium I think they might be gone in the HK to.
That document you referenced is from 2008. I owned a 2007 E92 with Logic7--it had 13 speakers. I now own a 2011.5 E92 with Harman Kardon--it has 11 speakers:

-center dash: 1
-mid-range in each door: 2
-tweeter in each door: 2
-sub under each front seat:2
-mid-range, side rear: 2
-tweeter, side rear: 2

The number of speakers in the coupe and convertible are the same; however, the coupe has a 420W amp vs. only 340W in the convertible (this seems backwards to me, but oh well). Both systems have Logic7 processing.
