X3 dash center speaker

Hi,
I have the base audio in my X3 and am having the audio updated. Is it possible to cut out the recess where the speaker would fit in the dash and fit speaker brack with mud and tweeter and Orem speaker grill? Also does mine have an analog or digital CAN BUS (100 or 150?)?

Open the cover/grill and look in there. There might be a replaceable bracket already.

As per attached picture there is no hole or grill just a recess in the dash where it should be if fitted. Can I cut that out and fit grill?

Oh. That is very different from the ones here (i think we have grills as standard). If trying to fit the OE BMW grill, it will require a whole lot of precision cutting and parts as the grill has a bunch of tabs/prongs going into small holders in the dash. Might be easier if you make your custom grill following that shape/outline. Let me find some recent/old pictures...

Ok just found some pictures from last year. These are the factory H/K config/parts. Maybe you can use the OE grill but might have to trim/cut the 6+3 tabs, and then safely affix the grill to the dash using another method (don't want the grill to dislodge in case of an accident). But then again, if after trimming the top "leather"/section we magically find the cavity and all the attachment points hiding in there... then hey we're all set! (?)
