Yeah, I'd like to feel a little more. Is there a sub under the seat with H&K? I haven't looked myself.

Can you explain the difference in sound between the HK and the Eton speakers? Was it just the tweeter that made a difference or did the midrange change as well? More mid-bass? Different vocals? How about the efficiency? Did you feel like you had to turn the byline knob higher to get the same amount of volume as before?

The Etons are less sharp, smoother and yes they do provide more mid-bass. The only thing I had to turn down was the treble.

I just got mine so i am looking to get them installed this week. I am definitely looking forward to the improvements you listed below.

Has the sound changed much since the speakers have broken in?

Yes. They have loosened up and produce more bass.

The Etons have silk dome tweeters and are very very smooth. There is no harshness or fatigue at all, even at very high volumes, which I really like.

However, because of the smoothness they do lack some definition and liveliness that IMO needs to be balanced out by livelier speakers in the rear. I would not recommend replacing all speakers with Etons. In my 2 series I had the setup mentioned here https://www.2addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1236238 and it was very good.

Currently I have the B&W in my m550i and am considering replacing the front tweeters with the Etons. I have mixed feelings about the B&W but for the most part I am not happy with how bright and forward the sound is.. it can be too much at higher volume levels. Will be interesting to see how swapping the tweeters will affect my impression of it, assuming the wiring/impedance is even compatible.

I'm thinking of upgrading the oem speakers to Eton's but simply replacing all speakers without a decent amplifier wont make much different.

Kieran here in Cork. I have a G30 with standard speakers (not even HK). Would love an upgrade as I do enjoy cranking the volume up every now and then. I've no tweeters either (so I expect no wiring for same). Would you recommend those Eltons as a good upgrade to my current set-up? I find when I turn up the volume on mine, you lose a lot of sound quality and get some disturbance. If I just change speakers in the front doors, will I still have issues given that there are many more speakers in the car (rear and under seats). Cheers.

Hi Kieran. I have a full set of Eton speakers for sale as I have changed my car. I have speakers and tweeters for the front doors, the rear shelf and the centre dash. However, I do think that you might need a separate amp to get the best from the Etons.

I don't think that there would be cabling for the rear doors - you would have the remove a rear door card to be sure.
I think the answer to your second question is yes. Though, if you're upgading the Hi-Fi system I would recommend the MatchUp 7 amp which is designed specifically for it. I have a full set of Eton speakers to replace the Hi-Fi speakers for sale comprising of front doors with tweeters, centre dash and rear shelf.

Can you PM me a price please for that lot? Are the tweeters separate? I don't have tweeters in my car nor the covers for them.

I would prefer Eton...Can you PM the price for them?
HK underseats? do you have those if you do send me a price for them too.
If you need anything in Split I will give you my no.

Just installed the Etons in the front doors (mid and tweets). I didnt disconnect everything on the back of the door panel except the locking cable. Just took it off and laid it on the floor whilst i replaced the door speakers. Took an hour both sides.
Havent had a chance to disconnect the dash centre speaker.
