  1. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hi everyone, I have a BMW e92 320d, and I'm looking to upgrade the sound system. At the moment, I think it's just the base system, with underseat subs. But it sounds rubbish, with no real bass. I'm wanting to upgrade the audio, ideally under £500. The main thing I'm looking to get out this...
  2. General BMW Questions
    Hi All~ I just bought a 2020 M340 and I neglected to notice the car does not have the harmon kardon system of my last BMW. I believe my car has the system BMW calls "hifi" and honestly, the sound is not great. It's quite hard to hear unless the dial is almost to the max, in which case the...

    Hows it going everyone, I’m new to the BMW world. I’ve mostly worked on JDM cars. Now I wanna work on a European car. I just got an 06 BMW 325xi (E90) everything working amazingly besides the entertainment systems. I’ve looked at all the information dealing with the Most Bus system, regarding...
  4. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey, I'm purchasing a 328i sedan soon, deciding between 2009, 2010, 2011. Just wondering, is there any difference between the Logic 7 sound system in the 09/10 e90s, compared to the 2011 Harman Kardon sound systems? I've read some stuff up online, some mention theres less bass in the 2011 HK and...

    Hi guys I just bought a 2012 BMW X1 and I want to put subwoofers in it. I have 2 of 12 inch pioneer subs and a 760w pioneer amp. I want to know if it is possible to hook it up to OEM stereo system and if it is how or what would I need. Thanks

  7. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hello everyone, I'm a brand new member. I just bought a 2013 ActiveHybrid 5 sedan. I love almost everything about the car but I sure don't love the sound system. My car doesn't have the upgraded B&O system, just BMW's basic (fabulously complicated) navigation/entertainment system. From a pure...
  8. E39 (1997 - 2003)
    I just bought a 2002 530i. It is my second car and I love everything about it except one thing, I cant really listen to the music I want. The radio plays very limited songs and i have no cds (it has a business cd player) I read on here about the bmw oem aux kit and know where to purchase it...
  9. F12 / F13 (2012 - 2018)
    Hello All - first timer here with what will hopefully be an easy one... I have a 2013 650iX convertible that I absolutely love. It is completely loaded (can't tell you how much I LOVE the B&O sound system!) . One feature I am not fond of, however, is the way that the volume increases when I...
  10. X3 F25 (2011 - 2017)
    Hey guys, I bought a new X3 last week and noticed that the HK doesn't seem to pack the punch, bass wise, that some of my previous HK systems have. Not sure if it matters, but the wattage is higher in this one and I figured being newer would mean it would be a bit more developed. Am I completely...
  11. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    I'm looking for a quick way to be able to play my iPhone in my car, I've looked at fm transmitters and I don't have a cassette player so I can't use the cassette adaptor. I just want sound quality to be good, obviously the stock sound system in a 2002 isn't going to be phenomenal, I don't want...
  12. 7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
    I have a 2007 750i, and I think my amy is going bad. Sound cuts in and out but only in the front speakers I think Navigation still works fine Sometimes the speakers hiss or crackle but usually they don't. Is my amp going bad?
  13. E90/E91/E92/E93 (2006 - 2013)
    Hey Everyone, Just picked up my first BMW and wow! Now I understand why forums like this exist...really cool machine. So here goes a question from a BMW green horn: 2009 335i convertible (I believe E93 is the easier description but correct me if I'm wrong). The only thing I don't love is...
  14. 7 Series - E38 (1995 - 2001)
    I just bought my son a 1999 740IL and had the radio changed out along with adding an amp and sub-woofer in the trunk. Little did I know that the partition between the seat and the trunk is thick metal and the bass seems to be trapped in the trunk. It sounds ok but not nearly as good as it can...
  15. E46 (1999 - 2006)
    Hi there, Hopefully someone will have an answer for me. Had an auxiliary cable installed today on my E46 M3 (no sat/nav). Now the sound enhancement button stopped working. (it lights up but the sound deosn't get 'amplified' like it's supposed to). What gives? Part of me is paranoid that the...
  16. F30 / F31 / F32 / F33 / F34 / F36 (2012 - current)
    I recently purchased a '13 328i base model. I love the car, but the sound system is disappointing. My first car was a BMW 330Ci with the Harman Kardon system, and I loved the quality. Is it worth upgrading the system through BMW or just get an aftermarket system installed?
  17. F10 / F11 (2011 - 2016)
    Hi, i have been looking to upgrade the stock sound system on my f10, nothing solid yet. help please.
  18. X5 E70 (2007 - 2013)
    Hey guys, i just got a 2009 BMW X5 30i with only 30k over here in NH. I Love just about everything this car has to offer but one thing i have been looking into is putting a louder sound system in so i can really hear my music when i have the roof open and the windows down. i have ran into...

  20. E60 / E61 (2004 - 2010)
    Hey all..I am new to the BMW world but have to admit that I LOVE my ride.. Here's the low-down and my question for anyone with info... I have an 06 530XI with Logic 7 sound system. I'd like to throw in my 2 cadence 12"s and Ultradrive amp into the trunk to really make my system sweet. Is this...
