I am not a huge music audiophile but the base sound on my car is poor. What options are there for improving the sound

Cheers

A huge audiophile yet can't spell bass correctly :P

Not really seen many go for an aftermarket kit but if your anywhere near leeds/wakefield give RAM a visit. They want you to get what you want and not your money.

I meant base and not bass. I live in south wales.

My 530i also sounded Crap.

I am not a music audiophile but have spent a few shekels On my home theatre audio.

But the basic BMW audio is frankly appalling.

Hi sunshinewelly,

When I was researching my M135i, being a nutcase Audiophile with Focal Utopia speakers at home, I looked at the Focal Custom fit speakers for the F2x. http://www.focal.com/en/dedicated-drive ... bmw-c.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; But I'm not sure they fit on the F21 mind.

In the end it did not happen because I ended up getting a pre ordered car from TRL that came with the HK amp and speakers. It's not bad for a car. I ordered HK again when I got my LCI.

I had a nostalgic moment yesterday by finding a track on Spotify that I had not heard in 30 years. It was this...

https://open.spotify.com/track/1fOrdq5lDitklPno27DeHV" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (Robert Plant - In the Mood)

I think, if ever there was a track made to show off the HK, that's it. It sounds brilliant!

I must say, Spotify tracks downloaded in "Extreme" quality in to the iPhone and USB straight into the Pro Media is pretty darn good.

Cheers

Paul

Just re-read that and I've gone off on a bit of a tangent. Sorry!

I think I meant to say, investigate some after market speakers. Albeit not near you, this kind of thing... http://www.audiofile-incar.co.uk/index. ... &Itemid=95" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

You could retro-fit HK door mids and HK front tweeters?

N.B. It's not very obvious on Realoem, but if you order the HK tweeter pods they come with the tweeters pre-installed inside them.

Put your postcode in there and you'll find a good reputable ICE shop.

B&B AudioConcepts is in Cardiff IIRC. Speak to Waz. Top bloke.
