Harman Kardon option for the F56 - official PDF

I have the Harman Kardon audio option on my car and am very pleased with it...

However, as this PDF (above link) shows, the speakers under the seats are Woofers - not Sub-Woofers!

Particularly when playing uncompressed/lossless digital music tracks, I find the bass to be well-defined & clear - but many other people on this forum find the bass to be lacking... presumably because there is no Sub-Woofer!

I believe the standard audio system has speakers next to each seat, front & rear, but NO speakers under the front seats. These arrive with the various audio upgrades...

The H/K option adds two speakers in the top centre of the dash, the very stylish & clean-sounding Tweeters at the base of the A-pillars, the under-seat Woofers & the 400-watt DSP Amp.

In my opinion, it's an essential upgrade if you enjoy listening to recorded music (rather than the radio).

And the tweeters in the rear side panels too. The underseat speakers are woofersr but the difference between a sub and a woofer is moot. Generally the big speaker tuned to do the lowest frequencies can be labelled a sub woofer the larger door speakers are mids and then the tweeters for the highs in the doors. So I shall carry on calling them subs as that's what they do. They are all woofers!
Ps don't care what they're called as you quite rightly say the system sounds wonderful!
