View Full Version : Front speakers of my bmw

Hi, i removed my front speakers in order to replace them, and there was a factory made plastic box in which i can only fit a specified speaker dimension, but once i put a speaker and tie the 4 screws, there isnt any whole in the box for the air to escape, how is that?? its like installing a woofer in a box that is fully closed:S, should i drill the plastic box from the other side or what?? thx guys

It would just be sealed then...

yep i just read about ported and sealed boxes now:D, guess i must leave it as it is then.

It would be better to keep it sealed IMHO, you will get better sound quality from your midbass driver.

Are you saying the speaker is *fully enclosed?*

I'd investigate more; Likely it only seems that way.

My guess is a 3 series and that you are referring to the cavity in the kick panels. They are uneven sizes between right and left and have a lot of car body panel noise--tons of vibration. In my old one I put a ton of deadening material in there and it helped a ton. Seemed to tighten up the 5.25 's that I put in there as well. Good luck. Is it a 3?

Mine is a 3 series but I have custom fiberglass speakers in the door, PLUS the kick panels. I guess it pays to buy your car off of a manager of an audio shop. lol I am going to take pics of EVERYTHING (current ones are outdated) on Sunday to show off my system. I LOVE IT

yes its a 3 series 1995 model, i want to add some speakers in the doors but there is no factory place for them, so what i am going to do is add an amplifier just to power the two tweeters and the 2 small speakers in the front with high frequencies to at least, have a surround. What can i do to add speakers in the door ( change the panels??/) and should they be 2 ways speakers? thx
