Question z4 hifi system 11 speakers

hi all,
i just ordered a new z4 23i which should be delivered next month. i was just curious to know if anyone here had had the opportunity to test the 11 speaker system upgrade cos that's the one i ordered. i'm asking those of you guys that are in europe since americans only have choice between standard or premium package(which is the high end 14 speaker setup). i found the standard stereo to be really weak when i first test drove the car at my dealer and that's why i ordered the hifi upgrade with 11 speakers and 245w amp. i didn't go for the high end setup cos it was 400 euros more expensive and wasn't sure it was truely worth it.
one last thing, do you know which brand is manufacturing this sound system on the z4, i used to have a mini with hifi upgrade from harman kardon and it sounded great! is it harman kardon on z4 too?
anyway, mine should be delivered by the end of april and i just can't wait to take it for a spin!

I don't think that 11 speaker system came from Harman Kardon. But with this set up, It is more than enough for normal use (roof up/down)

I think you will really like it. The quality is definately worth it. I found the use of the EQ is best for customizing and improving the quality of the sound. I did not like the surround sound feature as the music sounded hollow etc. The cabin sound is really good with the top down too and the power of the system is sufficient also. I downloaded my music library to the hard drive and it works great!

Dude you got the Hi Fi and not the Logic7

The US market call the logic7 soundsystem "proffesional" , can i assume that you didnt opt for the navi thats why you say you have the proffesional radio unit /source !

Your stereo is good.

The cars cabin is the issue here. Listen to the Logic7 into a 3er and right after into E89... Huge difference.. 3er has some more options for surround and also haw the equaliser while Z4 doesnt have that.

Dont worry about the sound. Be sure that you made the best option

yes mango, when i referred to professional radio, i meant just the radio source. the speaker system is just the mid range system with 11 speakers and a 245w amplifier, i think they call it hifi package here in france. i didn't opt for the whole sat/nav thing...
thx for your replies guys
