7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Speakers

I have an 06 bmw 750li... I called the dealership just to get the sizes of all the speakers before I start to replace them... I have them my bin number and they told me that my car has subwoofers under the front driver and passenger seat... Maybe I'm blond cause I've looked under those seats before and I've never seen any speakers... Does any of you guys or women I there's any on the forum have speakers under your front seats??? And if I want to replace the speakers, what would be a good quality of speakers to go with??? But I'm very curious about the under the seat speakers...

If you have Logic 7 then there are two 8 inch subs under the seats.

I went with these subs that are direct replacement http://earthquakesound.com/index.php...ts/item/sws8xi

I went with a speaker setup from http://www.bavsound.com/Stage-One/

If you have a center speaker in your dashboard you have logic 7. I have not installed any yet as I am saving up for the amps and trunk woofers

I agree with sotightbuddy on Bav Sound. They also have a new replacement sub woofer.

the sub is recessed into the floor under a cover under the front seats if that helps. You have to remove the seats to get access to them

Logic 7 sounds amazing in a vehicle with no malfunctioning ASK unit or L7 AMP. I have posted an alternative to OEM speaker and subwoofer replacements in the links above. I don't quite understand what you are trying to accomplish.

I purchased my replacement speakers for my E66 from http://www.bavsound.com/ $727 Total for all speakers. (I paid $1054 last year) Its on sale now...

It is plug and play and it sounds amazing with my Logic7

I also have Alpine PDX-V9 Amp with the JL Stealthbox installed.

I also replaced all speakers last year with the BavSound units. Definitely an upgrade, sound great. One caution: they advertise complete instructions and video instructions for easy install. I was disappointed when I opened the boxes and found no instructions. I called and they don't have any printed or online instructions for the 7 series, just other models. I had to do some digging online and call them for assistance. I also had to use a Dremel to modify the enclosure for the rear deck units to fit. Still a nice upgrade after I figured out how to do it all. Maybe they have better instructions now.

How can I tell if my ASK unit or L7 amp is malfunctioning? I know the pop-out phone doesn't work. That's been intermittently on and off since I've owned the car but finally just stopped working for good about a month ago.
