Elegant BMW Audio Upgrade in a BMW 4 Series

December 1st, 2015

BMW Audio Upgrade

BMW 4 Series BMW Audio UpgradeAs we all know BMWs are one of the best manufacturers to date and produce some of the best looking vehicles on the market. Also, with their mean looking body styling and excellent engine power they are very favourable over some of the lesser spec vehicles. While the exterior and the interior of the vehicle looks phenomenal, the audio is often not quite up to par. That’s where we step in with our BMW audio upgrade systems.

Keeping the look of the vehicle very standard is one of our top priorities. Many customers come to us with the proviso that the vehicle remains standard looking where nothing stands out from the ordinary and we appreciate that. If the original audio system doesn’t include tweeters we will order replacement tweeter panels from BMW. This allows us to mount the tweeters in the factory location. Once the planning and discussions are out of the way then comes the best bit, the installation.

Installation

BMW Audio Upgrade - Tweeter ReplacementInstalling the Audison Prima mid range and tweeter kit properly to the BMW 4 Series is one of the first stages to getting a better audio experience. These 2 speakers alone give a good increase in sound quality over the poor quality factory ones.  Once the speakers have been fitted the next stage is to add an amplifier which will greatly enhance the sound.

For this vehicle we used an Audison AP8.9Bit 8 channel amplifier, bridged into 4 channels for extra power.  We used this as we were also amplifying the factory under seat woofers. All our installations are done properly and we take pride in this. Consequently this may take some time but will make sure your vehicle is safe, and more importantly sounding amazing! One of the customer requests was to achieve good clarity at high volume. By using the adjustable DSP built into the Audison amplifier the customers needs were fulfilled. Using the right sized cables for the amplifier also enabled full use of the amplifiers potential.  

A BMW audio upgrade of this spec would be in the region of £1300.

Just wanted to say a massive thankyou to you guys at Source, especially Chris and Paul who over the past few weeks have impressed me no end. I went to them with a typically sub-standard BMW sound system, not really knowing how it should be improved and had a really friendly informal chat with Chris about the best route to take. What has impressed me most is that never at any point are the people here pushy – they really listen to your requirements and budget and make honest suggestions and give a number of options. Chris and Paul both spoke in some detail about what the issues were and how the problems could be addressed and I felt I was in safe, honest hands throughout the upgrade process. A whole new set of 3 way speaker set up and a new amp later the car sounds crystal clear like never before. Not wanting to change the head unit, the guys had solutions as to how to keep the car looking as factory as possible, and even asked me back in so they could check how the system has bedded in. Old components are carefully removed, allowing you to have them replaced should the car ever be sold. Their installation couldn’t be faulted and their customer service is genuinely excellent – polite, highly knowledgeable and above all honest, with their customer’s best interests at heart. I have no reservations in fully recommending them and have no doubt I will be back in future. Thanks again gents !! Jason
