is

Another question; if you replace the speakers do you need new filters if for example you buy a 2 way coaxel speaker?

Are there now filters in my oem system that is NOT a hk system?

I would like to know this too. I badly want to make room for a 6" in the front doors. I think the gap from a 5" to 12" is way too much. Need some midrange.

6.5's will fit easily in the rear, but in the front will require some modification to the door or panel because of the increased depth of aftermarket drivers compared to the stock ones.

BTW, I have the sedan...

ok i found some

Hans acs who does a lot off bimmer ice told me that the rear and front can have 6,5 inch

He prefers the boston rc 62O for the front

About the rc 62O
There is a extra tweeter included. When you remove the enclosure of the tweeter it fits the tweeter place around the mirrors inside the car.

Hi,

I am wondering the same things about speaker fitment. When you say that the 6.5 inch will fit easily in the rear do you mean no modification at all? Were you able to still use the factor grill covers?

Also, does anyone know what speakers will fit easily for components mid and tweets up front? Thanks.

Hans acs who is a member here has put the boston units in repeatetly. No problems on fitting at all. You can use the grill. Coaxal rear en boston met cross over and tweeter front. The tweters even fit the mirror housing where the oem tweeter is now installed
