2012 335i SQ upgrade

Hello everyone. Pretty new to the bmw forums. Have an audio upgrade going into a 2012 e92 335i. I've been more of a spl guy so this is something new for me. Note: I will not be doing the install, will be by Sound Connection in MN.

Big thanks to Ben at Sound Connection for being an awesome business owner and Ken for the advice/guidance for upgrading the vehicle and providing some of the equipment going into it.


First off, quick video of my spl 4runner (currently stripped down and for sale)


Vehicle



Equipment list

Mobridge
Audison Bit One
Morel mt230's (tweeters)
Hybrid Audio Legatia - L4SE Carbon Mids
Jehnert Midbass XE200
2 X Digital Bit In for the amps
Audison 5.1K
Audison Av Due
Hertz High Energy 12

Everything full digital. Center speaker and all rear speakers will be disconnected.

Onto pics!
(hertz sub hadn't arrived when I was there)






Equipment















Vehicle was dropped off 3-16. I'll update as I get them from Ben.
Thanks for looking!

I have a sundown amp so I know that company but not familiar with the midrange speakers. How much were they and do they sound better than the harmons?

They're fairly spendy speakers, I think MAP on the Hybrids is ~620. All the speakers will be a significant upgrade from stock. (my vehicle was equipped with the factory Harmon upgrade)

What do you think of the Hybrids and the Morels? Good combo?

I personally think they sound great. no comparison really to the stock harman kardon system. Other than that though i don't really have much of a reference point to go off. Bit one needs retuned as well. I'll have pictures of the install soon.

So you're saying that brand you put in is far better than the HKs? Cause I LOVE my HK system.
All I need is alil more bass

thanks have pictures. just haven't gotten around to uploading them. i'll try and get around to it soon.

yes they're much better IMO, output and clarity. doesn't break up when turned up like the HK. that may also be in part due to the increased amplification. adding processing helps staging so much.

bass wise it's acceptable. nothing close to what i used to daily but i'd rather not rip up the bmw with bass haha. single decent 12 should be more than enough for most people though. musicar northwest sells molded/stealth fiberglass enclosures for our cars.
