Speaker upgrade questions

I plan to change out the footwell speakers in my Non-HK system. What is the size of these speakers?

5 1/4". There is plenty of depth for just about anything. I cut the holes larger and installed 6 1/2" front speakers. There is also a chance that you will have to cut the ribs off the inside of the plastic covers. Most aftermarket speakers are thicker around the rims than the HK speakers.

You will want to look over this thread:http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1415754 as well as do a search on "Front Speaker" by using the button at the top right of the forum page labled "Search This Forum."

You should also consider component speakers for the front and replace the door tweeter as well.
