E30 (1982 - 1993)
God's Chariot. The E30 was produced primarily from 1982 through 1991. The cabriolet was the one exception which was produced through 1993.

Stock Speaker Connections

86 BMW 325 E: I'm restoring the rear deck where the speakers go. Long story, but the ex-owner had drilled monstrous holes in there to install "Da bombin' Bass." In any case, got another piece out of the yard, used fabric and carpet paint on it to paint it black, and I bought some stock BMW premium speakers from another Bimmerfester. My question is, on the premium speakers there are two connectors. A thin one and a fatter one. Which is positive, and which is negative? I looked for a plus or minus, but I'll be fifty next year and even with glasses..the peepers are compromised.

Thanks. Once I got in there the connectors mached up. I wasn't sure since it was an aftermarket refit.

From many years of car audio installs and IASCA caraudio events.Handy when putting rear speakers 180 degrees out of phase with the rest of the sterio as not all speakers are marked!

Right. The BMW speakers I have...the premiums...they were not marked.
