Interesting X3 speaker upgrade

They used Focal K2P 2way and it looks great! They even made custom made A-pila housing with alcantara finish for the best sound stage creation.

Don't like focal K2's personally.

Far too harsh.

I googled the brand and the model, looks expensive for just the speakers alone, around 1k ish.

Anyways, Good Find

Gladen is offering speaker system for BMW and other european brands.

Seems like installation is much easier than Focal because it is direct fit to BMW. No modification or custom molding required.

It is interesting to see the enclosure once oem woofer was removed.

I'll upload Japanese high-end brands (sonic design and rainbow) installation for F25 next time.
