I have the MINI cooper 2014(F56) without the H/K option and going to upgrade the audio system in the car but not sure if it worth it or not
here's the speakers my local Focal dealer suggested
Focal Elite ES100K (4") x2 in the rear front doors
Focal Elite ES100K tweeters x2 in A-pillar (which will be drilled or replaced)
IFBMW-C (Plug and Play) x2 in the back seats
Focal Amp FD4.350 (4ch)
Focal Bass box IBUS 20
just wonder if the DSP and head-unit upgrade is needed
or is the kits above already satisfaction-guarantee?
P.S. pls note that my model doesnt come with H/K upgrade at first and didnt upgrade any other parts before (pure stock)
Thank you and would be really appreciated if reply (im really new to car audio upgrading)
As above,some threads on here say just upgrading speakers makes little difference. upgrades to amp make the dsp noisy (piped engine noise) unbearable! Hopefully you picked a good dealer with experience who knows what he's doing? Have a trawl on here.
I'd be interested to know if MINI drives the speakers over the databus like VAG does. If that is the case then you aren't going to get the results you are hoping for by swapping speakers.
Personally, I would suggest going with a speaker upgrade package from bavsound or something similar: https://www.bavsound.com/Mini-Speaker-Upgrades
Did you check out this company in Holland?
They use expensive German speakers but I'm sure these sound great. I upgraded my 2014 MCS (HK) with Focal Speakers and Amp(s) and a DSP. When tuned it sounded out of this world. The whole thing cost around $2k CDN. I now have a 2016 and have lived with the stereo for now. Spent my money on making my car go fast....:-)
