individual audio system vs logik7

Hey guys, i drive 2008 coupe 335xi at the moment and i'm thinking of upgrading to an e92 M3. I'm wondering how individual audio in M3 much better than logik7 in 335???

No, the current premium sound is good but it is not better than Logic 7.

People are going to say its not a great sound system, but it really is. 825 watts is the best n the class. Actually both of them are great (I only know from loaners with my iPod plugged in) I think the M has a bit more bass, and the subs are located under the seats so you at least feel it a bit more. With classical music, the M can handle the highs about more than the logic 7 system.

Well i thought it should be much better cause 400 watts in logik7 vs 825 watts in individual is notable difference. So i don't understand the reason to call it individual...

IMO, the difference is the Logic7 DSP compared with the DIRAC DSP in the Individual Audio.

Logic7 sounds better in the car to me than the DIRAC, regardless of number and quality of speakers and OEM amp power output.

Individual Audio is far from shitty. It is just disappointing for the price if you are looking for a very particular sound quality in a car.

If you decided to go custom aftermarket in the M, this would be a great high quality and very clean sound.

OEM Interface: Audison Bit Ten D
Amp: Audison LRx 6.9
Speakers Front: Hertz HSK 165
Speakers Rear: Hertz HCX 165 (if hsk 165 don't fit in rear)
Sub: Hertz HX 250 D (custom box)

I put exactly this in an r32 but thinking about putting it in my M. It truly had an incredibly clean sound.

The audiophile package (what I assume you mean by 'individual') ups the speaker count to 10, tweak the equalizer settings and you can get a really good cross-spectrum sound. I think the bass is more powerful. I got mine used with it already installed, so IDK if there's a huge difference between 335 and m3. If you have really high standards, just get aftermarket. OEM speakers from BMW all sound great to me.

I traded my old 335i for an M3 on Tuesday this week. The 335 had the Logic7 and the M3 has individual audio. I think the difference is quite big..

The Logic7 has more of a softer sound as the individual audio sounds a bit clearer. The real difference comes in when you start putting the volume up, you can really hear that the individual audio has more power. Eg. when listening to music with heavy bass, the upper parts of the sound remain as they should and are not "dampened" by the lower end.

So I would say that if you like to listen hard, the individual audio is worth it.

The 2 systems are incomparable. The Individual/EPS blows Logic7 or HK out of the water, especially if you listen to music at higher volumes. Logic7 and HK simply cannot keep up.
