Placing megafone

Anyone have idea where it can be fitted?

Size ~140x215x170
Should be directed to front (so, one way is underhood...)
But will it fit or not...

Eh.. I catch today a time to official bmw garage on 28 sept, so, if I will have time to stay with mechanic i'll do some photos of placing it.
To people who have interest wtf is it (but i think everybody understand what is it), here is some photos & videos...

=================================





Videos:
http://www.fed.ms:8080/v/2006-09-13_SGU.avi (installed temporary in trunk)
http://www.fed.ms:8080/v/2006-09-25_...nes_output.avi (earphone output)
http://www.fed.ms:8080/v/2006-09-25_...ne_wo_cono.avi (without cone)
http://www.fed.ms:8080/v/2006-09-25_..._with_cone.avi (with cone)

At reallity, changing of sound with and without cone is very little, but of course with cone is better.

Don't worry, I think my word 'matter' is not best word to say what i wish to say, but i think you understand me. Yes, of course it is external speaker... As you can see on photos with cone it CAN'T be fitted normaly at upper side of motor... maybe below motor it CAN be fixed, will see it then up car with lift and remove carther protect... if not - only one place I see in my car is right-corner side, speaker fit's there but without cone...
So... waiting 28 sept very much... can't wait more

Again, sorry for my english...

Remove the airbox, put it under there. There is some space there that should fit it.

Soooo... After days, after visit BMW service center and after they tell me a price to put this one (something about $1.5k), i decide to put it myself. Pay $150 - OK, but not $1500... :X

I tried to remove bumper - no space to place it (how difficult to do it with headlight wash.... :X)

I tried to remove grille - fit, but no metal support there.
[br]
I think about right-side of car (there a airbox on "i" BMW's are) - but again no metal support there.

So, I put off a cone on this megafone and tried again to find a place to it, and got it! At left side of motor-space, in metal support of brake liquid (did not sure what is it) it fits millimeter to millimeter!



I drill 2x6mm holes and fix mounting bracket on it. When put a speaker head, then a resonator. So, a distance between this box of brake liquid and speaker resonator something about 1mm
Then I use a standard stereo cable to do wiring from speaker to trunk where placed a amplifier for this `alarm`. Cable pass over passanger door into the interior of car.



At final i tried to horn one time only to check it (night...), works...
Some days more I will put link to some video...

[sorry for my english]
