RG Sport - BavSound Speaker and Woofer upgrade on F90 M5

Customer bought the car off the lot.
Got everything he wanted except the sound, which was Harman Kardon.

He reached out to us and got it done.
Even before the BavSound speakers got broken in, he loves the sound improvement right away.

Here are some pictures.

Wait, how do you want to compare with B&W when the car came with HK?

I am confused. :

I understand the car came with HK

I was wondering if you had perhaps heard the B&W as well and could compare this upgrade, vs that one.

I'd assume both are better than the HK so not super interested in that :P

Do you mean BavSound speaker upgrade compared to B&W?
Of course you can't compare it. B&W should be better since it cost you thousands more for it.
I personally never heard B&W. But I am pretty happy with HK upgraded to BavSound.
I have heard B&O in F15 or F85 though. As much as it sounds good, it is not my preference.
Too much high not enough low.
And it defeats the purpose of paying thousands for the upgrade but then you are looking to change the speaker to gain the low.

That's exactly the kind of thing I was curious about, thanks

Hard to tell from the pictures, but are those subs located under the rear seat? I'm looking for a way to tap into the system to see about adding a trunk sub. Would need some sort of speaker level input I assume.

It is under the front seat. Under the rear seat is a gas tank.

I am currently working on researching a simple sub upgrade to one of my F90 M5 customer.
I will update when that is do-able.

Audison makes direct replacements for the speakers and also the subs, the prices seem to be reasonable excluding installation. Wondering if anyone has ever tried them
