If I'm trying to recreate my last concert, all sound would be coming from my right speaker, since I was sitting to the right of the stage
But at least the concert was worth it, Elton John and Billy Joel

Plus if you're going for ultimate realism of being the artist
The sound would be coming from behind you since the stage speakers are sometimes behind the band

Sound quality is a very subjective thing so there will be no one right setting for everyone but if more people post what they feel works best for them, you can take bits and pieces of different settings to come up with what works best you.
I have made some tweaks since I posted. I'll update the new specs as soon as I get a chance to go for a drive.

You can try it for the E92, but I was under the impression that E92 had different acoustics within the cabin due to it's different shape.

I know what it sounds like when you're overloading the tweaters.

To all who is reading...

What are you exactly looking for in the ultimate set up?
This greatly depends on what you are looking for, what music type you enhoy, as well as when you listen to it.

1. If you are looking for ultimate clarity that can be measured with audio machines and what not, I'm sure this is FAR from perfect.
2. If you are looking for THUMPING bass you get from aftermarket subs, no matter how perfect your setup is, you will never get those results from this system.
3. If you like concert like sound with realism, I have no idea how that's like.

The parameters that chose for my setup were the following:
a. downloaded mp3 music, which were 192K and up.
b. listened from the iphone/USB
-iphone EQ set to OFF
c. just regular Billboard top 100 type of music, and some K Pop.
d. enough bass to hear even on the concrete highways when the volume is cranked up to hear the music over the tire roar.
- the balance I found here wasn't ear drum tearing volumes, but just enough to completely drown out exterior noise.

I would have to agree. These settings couldn't be more far off.

To the OP, you sound like you need a sub or two. Go read the thread that I posted, and those eq settings were done with an RTA to balance the sound, and was clearly stated, if you want heavy boomy bass, this is not the system for you.
