Andy & Gary,
Would it be possible for clarification on what equipment/locations exactly is been used in the BMW please as the threads on it and the CA&E review are not that clear, thanks for any help clearing up this confusion for me.
From the combined info i think i maybe right in thinking

BMW Idrive
BMW speakers (maybe the factory optional version ones?)
JBL MS8
JBL power series amps?
Pair JBL 12GTIs in slipstream ported box
Front Left & right , 8" midbass under the seat + 4" mid in door + Tweet in sail panel.
Front centre, 4" mid + tweet
Rear side left & right , 4" mid + tweet
Rear shelf left & right , Tweet (maybe something else too?)

In the BMW, the MS-8 is set up to provide 5.1 processing (sides and rears receive the same signal) with a bi-amped front stage. The factory under-seat woofers are now used as midbass speakers. For center channels used with MS-8, we recommend as close to full range response as possible--100Hz-20K is best, but a higher high-pass filter is OK too. Sides and rears should NOT play below 100Hz and SHOULD include tweeters for response out to 20K.

The main reason i asked was i was not sure at the time what was standard in the USA in the BMW as its not uncommon to have different specs for different markets. I have seen coaxials from the factory used in some BMWs over here in the rear doors and the centre with components used in the front doors and rear shelf so that made me wonder what the oem spec was at the time of posting the above q.

Digging this thread up again because I have a very similar system (BMW 335, L7, MS-8) and I wanted to know if anyone knew what the high-pass settings were on the front door, center, and rear (side) speakers.

Thanks!
