Do you have the Logic 7 system or HiFi stock system?

There are a variety of options that work well int eh E60, none are cheap. I have had the BSW speaker package, which I like because it is completely plug and play (www.bavariansoundwerks.com). Others have used Jenhert speakers with good results. When you keep in mind this is a BMW, the prices are not too unreasonable and the sound quality will be improved. If you are just looking for more bass (aren't we all?) the underseat woofers - really midbass', can be upgraded with Earthquake SW8 if I remember correctly.

The difference:
HiFi (US standard) - 10 speakers, no equalizer or surround sound
Logic 7 - 13 speakers, equalizer, surround sound

is there a list that shows all the speaker sizes for the e60? I have the hifi setup so from what you said its only a 10 speaker setup. is there slots for a 13 speaker setup on a non logic7 e60 without any sort of modification or would I have to stick to 10 speakers.

There is a spot for the mid range in the top of the dash board but the rear door speakers do not have a spot.
