Audio Upgrade in a BMW X5 4.6is - Janix

Contributed by: jmh

Well I finally picked up my car from Sound in Motion in Boston after it's been in their shop for almost 6 weeks. They've done an outstanding job with my system and I am very happy. The requirements had been to keep the looks as much as possible stock and retain the functionality of the loading floor etc...

All in all they've not only managed to put in an excellent system but also enhance the stock car in a couple of areas. I won't be posting all of the pics but I hope to add them to my website in a couple of days.

The system itself consists of :
  • Front/Rear door MB Quart QSD 216s
  • Amps Phoenix Gold 800.1 and 500.4
  • Subwoofer JL 6Wv2 12"
  • Integration with DSP and Bluetooth car kit (Nokia for the time being but I'll "upgrade" to the official BMW kit in approx 4 weeks (have to buy the parts in Germany))

Below you find a couple of the pics to give you an idea what they've done.

The subwoofer box standalone. It replaces the factory sub box and is integrated into the rear side cover and also will hold the two original power outlets.

This is the subwoofer box installed into its location. You can also see the relocated fuse block in the lower left hand side. There's also a removable opening on the upper right hand side to gain access to the bulbs and gas cap release.

This is the 'raw' amp rack and subwoofer box. The amp rack can still slide out using the factory sliders etc...

This is the amp rack and sub box installed and covered with original factory carpet.

This is the amp folded up

The amp rack with the cover opened
