Amazing change

Upgrading the subpar speaker system to Bavsound was an incredible experience from purshasing the kit to unpacking and finally intalling. It was a fun experience and very rewarding after turning the system on, listening and finally everything looked as if nothing was fiddled with sisnce it looked stock like it came as is from the factory. That is just an unbeatable journey. Thanks to Bavsound for providing this great experience.

Absolutely loved it

I have got the stage 2 upgrade so both speakers and subwoofers has been upgraded and the difference is just astonishing!! I'm not an audiophile but I can tell the difference easily from first minute even before speakers breakin. Now after almost 3 weeks of listening, I can tell the sound is just at the top and even exceeded my expectations!

Worth every penny!

I have to say, that I had my doubts when I decided to try the Bavsound Stage One speaker upgrade, but after completing the install/upgrade and hearing the final results, I am truly impressed and all doubts are gone. Thank you Bavsound for taking your mission as serious as you do. Your speakers ROCK!!

Great Speakers

Speakers are a great replacement for the OEM ones in my car. Installation instructions were great. Very easy to follow. The tool kit included everything I needed for the replacement. Sounds much better than the speakers I replaced. I'd highly recommend this replacement for anyone looking for a speaker upgrade or replacement for their BMW.

Surprised that a $100K luxury car needs speaker upgrades?

I was rather surprised when I bought a 2014 750LXi that the quality of all my favorite MP3 tunes were sounding rather bland on its Harmon Kardon sound system compared to the HK system on my previous 2008 750Li that I had driven for 5yrs/75K miles Upon inspecting the center channel and reading online about this it was revealing that although BMW had improved on the engine, handling, technology content from 2008 to 2013, they stupidly cut back on the quality of the speakers to save a few hundreds of dollars. The speakers were of very very cheap build quality. Ridiculous !! Anyway, I ordered the Stage One upgrade along with the Ghost Sub-woofers and the transformation was dramatic. Not quite the same as the Bang-Olufsen quality but then that system is a factory only option and costs 4-5x more.

stage one

Really happy with it . I've expected a good sound after upgrade, but I didn't expect that sound quality will be so good. I would recomen stage one upgrade to anyone with a standard HiFi.

Way better then the original speaker

I cannot stress just how easy it was to install, and better yet it has amazing sound quality. Dispite this company not being the biggest, it still offers many things that large companies don't give such as an awesome 4 year warranty. Good job bavsound

Very impressed

I was thinking about going with Morels and a Mobridge sound processor and aftermarket amps at twice the cost. I have a 2013 X5 with top premium hifi system. I went with the stage 1, Ghosts and a JL Stealth box with 500 watt rms JL amp. All is good. I cannot compare the difference if I went with the morels and aftermarket amps, but I can tell you it is really impressive. I am fairly finicky with my audio choices and this setup sounds really good. I am totally happy with this decision and I was fairly convinced prior to install that I would remove these and go with the Morels and Jehnerts under the seat. I am glad I did not bail on these and go the other way. All the highs, mids and lows that were missing before with the stock system are there now and they are very clear. For those of you considering this setup and you like very tight and deep bass then I would go with the JL stealthbox as well. The Ghosts for me are necessary for the bass lines and the sub is also for the lows, it really fills this system out. Is the JL Stealthbox overkill for this car?...Yes, it is, this thing rattles your lungs if you want, but I have it turned down and you need it if you desire a full spectrum sound, the Ghosts don't quite go low enough, but they are great for bass detail. Anyhow, I love it, I am really enjoying it and I can tell that this stage 1 system has been well engineered. Even better news, I probably only have 6 hours in on these speakers and my factory EQ is still flat and it sounds great. I am excited to adjust it even more. Great Job BavSound! Glad I went this route.

Great improvement with small effort dyi

I was afraid of doing the upgrade but after watching the videos on how to replace the speaker, I give it a try. Sound is so much better with great detail and bass. The mid really make a difference. And the instructional videos are dummy-proof: just follow the same steps and you will be rocking in a few ours. Great product, good price, excellent instructions on video= happier bimmer owner! thanks a lot Bavsound.

Easiest Speaker Upgrade Ever!

I have upgraded many car stereo's and speakers over the years, my own cars and a lot a friends cars. I was apprehensive at first because of the price. After I did some research on what other products were available for my '07 335i coupe. It was an easy decision. No cutting just remove some panels and replace the speakers... couldn't have been easier. Great instillation video's. They sound noticeably better than the factory speakers at lower and higher volume levels, but I think they really come to life when you crank up the volume and then there is a huge difference over the factory speakers. have the best? Also Where can I get a sticker so people will know I have the best?

I was skeptical

Inwas skeptical that the upgraded Stage 1 & Ghost Subs would be significantly better. Well they were an upgrade to the HK speakers. Sounds is "warmer". Subs do "open up" aftrr use. Bass is more punchy, no muddy like thr HK subs. Net: woth the upgrade.

Bavsound Stage 1 F30 Upgrade

Immediately upon taking delivery of my 328i F30, I was struck by how much the sound coming from the HIFI system in my vehicle did not align with the quality I expect from BMW. I started to look at upgrade options and kept coming back to the Stage 1 upgrade from Bavsound due its lack of invasiveness and relative simplicity. After 3-4 months of hounding the fine folks at Bavsound (thanks to Jeremy and Megan for patiently answering myriad questions on numerous occasions), I decided to pull the trigger on the Stage 1 upgrade. The issues I had with the HIFI system were numerous but my main concerns were the following: limited mid-range response which contributes to a lack of warmth in most music; the tweeters, while somewhat bright and lively, are quite harsh and tiring; noticeable distortion and clipping at higher volumes. The Stage 1 upgrade alleviated all those concerns and more. The most noticeable improvement in the the upgrade is that it really brings the mid-range alive and adds much-welcome warmth to all my favorite tunes. The tweeters now sound incredibly clean and crisp, and the harshness is largely eliminated. Most importantly, I am now able to crank music to an appropriately loud level without limited to no distortion. While the Stage 1 upgrade does not include the upgraded Ghost subwoofers, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that the subwoofer response has now seemed to increase so that the subwoofers seemingly come alive at much lower volumes and bass levels that previously. My BMW now has a stereo system that aligns appropriately with the cost and reputation of the brand. I couldn't be happier with Bavsound's product and the great support they exhibited at each step of the process. Highly recommended, you won't be disappointed!

Amazing upgrade for E36!

I was looking into speaker upgrade for my E36 for quite some time because the factory HK speakers just deteriorated over time. I wanted to retain the stock look of the interior and speakers that would pair nicely with my Becker Indianapolis. Installation was very easy, everything needed was included in the kit. The sound quality is great compared to the factory speakers. It is like night and day. The bass is direct and punchy, something I have never experienced with HK speakers. I highly recommend to insulate both doors and footwell, as it makes the sound firmer and the bass smoother. My only regret is that I have not made my mind sooner.

Super happy with sound

I ordered the Bavsound replacement speakers for my M4, including the underseat woofers. I wasn't happy with the sound of the H&K system. With the toolkit I had everything necessary to do everything myself but a friend who runs an auto body shop offered to help. The installation was a little more complicated than I anticipated so we did things in stages - the rear deck, center channel and woofers first which didn't make a big difference in sound other than the extra bass. Next came the doors and sound deadening which made a big difference. I had the system set up like that for a couple weeks and was fairly happy with the sound. I finally did the rear side panels and added more sound deadening there. Wow! The system really shines now and I am totally impressed with how big of a difference the speakers have made. Love the new sound.

Absolutely worth it!

Installed stage one speakers into 330ci convertible with HK system, I took my time in reviewing as I had some aftermarket Bluetooth hurdles to get over but that's allowed me to play with the system and test it out with different tracks and sources, my conclusion is like many of the reviews I've heard before, the speakers are clear and sound beautiful, I've had to turn the factory bass down as I'm getting more than enough for my ears from sub and the bavsound mids, I absolutely love this upgrade, it's not Loud! I have another vehicle with a Loud system and it's not that, but, I find the sound refined, clear and punchy, just what I want in my 330, if I purchased another BMW in future, first thing I would be budgeting for is this upgrade.

It takes me 3 month to upgrade all the speakers, because there are many technical problems to be resolved, but while listening when all the speakers was done, it's certainly worth it!
