00 328i rear speaker size?

just got the car, threw in a drum n bass cd, and my rear panel speaker (rear left) sounds like its playing dubstep with the wobble pops lol.

anyways, it blew. its not the door speaker its the one on the rear panel?

what size is that? i assume 6x9?

and would it be smart to get a aftermarket the same watts/rms, or larger?

I dont plan on pushing an amp to them, im keeping my stock head unit.

Let me clarify...or ask something for clarification:

If you have the "standard" sound system, then your speakers in the back are 6.25

If you have the HK (Harman Kardon) "premium" sound system, then the speakers (which are really just woofers) ARE 6x9.

I forgot that the 323 and 328 had the HK option.

It'll have an "HK" symbol somewhere on a speaker grill, also, you "should" have a DSP button on the "button panel" under your radio...looks like a speaker...it's in the same location as your heated seat buttons.

You could always just look in the rear deck and if the speaker grill isn't a circle then you should have the HK system instead. Use the search button for some speaker grill sizes.
