The best thing about PLASTIC(polypropylene) cones is that their manufacturing uniformity is very high and inexpensive to produce. Some people argue that plastic cones tend to not sound as snappy or lively as stiff paper cone counterparts. This can be attributed to an almost capacitive storage effect inherent in soft cone type drivers. If well engineered, a well damped plastic diaphragms can excel at mid-range frequencies and at a fraction of the cost of producing a quality paper cone driver. We don't use plastic. Good-to-excellent self-damping, potentially excellent resolution and detail, very flat response potential, and a gradual onset of cone breakup. It can be used with low slope linear-phase crossovers without much trouble. Paper is a material that sounds better than it measures... This is an genuine asset, not a disadvantage. We don't use plain paper. Light and stiff, using an almost infinite variety of fibers, paper composite can be engineered to meet almost any requirement. Treated/coated paper cones largely address the issue of degradation due to atmospheric conditions.
The effectiveness of these treatments varies, depending on the specific technology. Paper remains one of the best possible materials for cones. Some of the better paper technologies include:Carbon Fiber, Composite Sandwich (CSX), 5 Layer Composite (HDS), Poly-glass, Slitted Paper, and Kevlar (Poly-Aramid Fiber). Warmth of Sound + Benefits of Material Added.

Another Happy BMW Driver, Motoring down the highway listening 2 awesome speakers. BMW 3 Series (E46) Harman Kardon Speaker Upgrade - Complete 12 speaker Solution (#281068480968). Here are more reviews from DIY Internet websites. It took a little engineering to get everything to fit, but WOW!!! There is no comparison to the HK system.I don't think I had ever realized the The Eagles "Witchy Woman" had RAVEN hair!!! You will not be dissapointed. " --Steve - 14215 August 15, 2008 "I bought these speakers to replace the rather specialized and highly distorting HK's in my BMW 330CiC door. " --Bimmer Driver-October 31, 2011 "Used this speaker as a replacement for my BMW M3 E46. The polarization question mentioned in one of the other reviews can be solved by connecting your old speaker to a battery (like AA) and noting the direction the cone moves for a given battery polarity. Repeat with the new speaker. Match the speaker terminals so that the new cone moves in the same direction as the old one. I bought this to put in as a midrange in a project speaker i was building. I can find nothing to complain about. For the price they are the best speakers your going to get. Appearance is is really pretty good as is build quality. Don't go to the trouble of fabricating your own MDF (medium density fiberboard) adapters like you see in so many DIY's Use our custom adapters for that custom fit. Think of it as "Swap & Drop". While this is absolutely a DIY Level Project Kit Professional Installation is Highly Recommended OR Customers should be comfortable with the Following Procedures.
Tweeters: you will have to pop out the driver from the holder and splice the connector back on. 2½ Mid-Drivers: The driver in the kit was chosen because of its matched impedance and its four squared ears with holes in them. This means that you'll have to snip away some material to make them fit.
The front door drivers have to be rounded off. The rear door drivers need to have the tabs have material cleared away to allow them to attach to the threaded ring that holds them to the door. I will provide the two screws to attach them.
You then splice the factory connector onto your new assembly. 6 Woofers: These are the easiest to do. Custom adapters are included (4). You can disregard the factory connector and simply use the blade connectors directly.
6×9 Sub-woofers: Another custom pair of adapters is included. It will allow you to install my 6 Driver into the factory 6×9 enclosure.
The speakers have double posts for parallel wiring. This will help you MATCH the speakers' impedance to your HK amp's specs.
The stock subs run 32 watts at 2ohms. In small percentage of E46 BMW's a small 3¾ circle will have to be cut inside sedan's front doors where magnets touch the door structure.
We have not encountered problem with Coupes. We don't know why. There will be a 7mm gap between your door and the interior door card panel and will make it difficult to snap door card onto door. Some drivers have reported the ability to leave the door card as-is with no ill effects. ONE Upside reported is that if that once the hole is placed in the door the the door cavity can be treated as a speaker cabinet and filled with acoustic fill.
This GREATLY tightens up the speaker's response and volume. With only some basic stereo installation know-how YOU can absolutely Install these Speakers yourself. Great care and research was dedicated to make these speakers simply a swap and drop in solution using the OEM mounts and housings.However, professional installation is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you want to pay to have this installed professionally, your installer will not charge you for custom work but this is certainly an easy DIY project you can do yourself. With additional modification, this set of speakers can be installed on Coupes And Convertibles. Speaker frequencies, and impedances have been carefully matched.
Read before using your new speaker. We will gladly help you get the most from you speakers and are at your disposal. We have experience and knowledge to choose the best suitable speakers for your BMW application. Variables such as sound and tone are subjective to the listener.
While we do not guarantee the suitability of a specific speaker to a specific application, we provide a period of 30 days from the date of invoice for defective drivers only or if the speakers are HAVE NEVER BEEN INSTALLED and have been auditioned in prescribed manner. Our Reviews are all the testament needed regarding the SUITABILITY of these drivers to your BMW application. To "audition" a speaker without scratching or marking it will require getting it into the speaker cabinet or automobile as these speakers are often utilizes and listening to it play without actually mounting it with screws. This can be done by tilting the cabinet or location back and setting the speaker in place or placing it in its rear (parcel shelf) deck location.If the cabinet has bare wire leads, just wrap them around the solder lug connector on the back, of the speaker to make the electrical connections. A friend can help hold the speaker in place while you listen to the new speaker. This is, of course, not an optimal way to listen to a speaker, but will give you the opportunity to identity major response problems or poor tonal characteristics prior to mounting or installing.
The speaker must be in like new condition. This includes no mounting marks or scratches especially.
Around the mounting holes, no solder on the connectors, no sealing caulk, dirt, sawdust (from car adapters), or other debris. Package the product to protect it from damage' in route to us. Insure the package for the value of the product.
