    upgrade from bmw 325ci Harmon Kardon Tweeters

    Hey guys..

    Ive been out of the CA scene for a while... Not a complete audiophile but i appreciate nice sounding systems.

    recently my HK tweeters in my bmw started cracking... does anyone know a good replacement that will fit in the same location? stock HU

    How good were the HK? I think the system sounds great.

    What would be as good or better?

    thanks a lot guys!

    i believe so. Its def got like an 8" sub in the back that sounds very clean, i believe it is above the seat under the rear window though, not the pass through... It has a button which seems to amplify the entire system a bit. I leave it on. maybe that is why its starting to go.

    I have the same system in my car, if yours is the one with 3 speakers in each front door and 2 in the rear doors. There is actually 2 speakers in the rear parcel shelf that make the sub bass....not really sub woofers, per say. The button that looks like a speaker is for setting the stereo to full/surround/phantom sound on all speakers. All the speakers sound basically the same.

    Normal setting cuts the high freqs from the rear speakers and runs them in mid-bass mode and brings your front stage forward and up. More like a tuned 3-way active system.

    There isn't a cheap "kit" for these cars unfortunately...

    You would have to take the tweeter pod cover off and measure the tweeter to find something that would fit behind the cover.
    Parts Express: the #1 source for audio, video & speaker building components and Madisound Speaker Components: distributor of loudspeaker drivers and parts for speaker builders. are your best bets for raw tweeters.

    Hope this helps!
