Default GP2 audio upgrade - 14th May 2013, 09:22 PM

Thought you guys might like to see a few pics.
There is quite a lot you can do with the system - I tested it stock & it is bad - worse than the normal R56 (obviously the lack of rears doesn't help) but also the sound is so muddy with a complete lack of detail.
The system we have here is a 720 watt amplifier, new OEM A pillars with 350watt tweeters, 350watt mid woofers in the door, crossovers, sound deadening in the doors.
The wiring & stereo are different than normal R56's
Other options that can be added are a under seat sub under the drivers seat, & if you want even more in the hidden cargo areas. Looking at the car it would even be possible to fit 6*9's in the boot side cubbys !
Anyway - we didn't do any subs in this car & still made a huge difference.

that looks a really neat install,

the stock sound is indeed dreadful, all over the place really, that must sound great now

Nice job. You sorted a Countryman guinea pig yet? I'm still willing.
