Where are the speakers?

Hi, my 118i Sport\'s spec says it comes with the 7-speaker HiFi Loudsystem.
However, can\'t locate all speakers position. Can anyone help?
I can only find:
1 behind the iDrive monitor
2 on each front door
2 behind back seats headrests
Thanks

Hi Jazzo77,

Can you tell how the 2 central bass speakers underneath the front seats look like.
I have looked under the front seats but did not see any speakers and I did not anything either. I have postend some pictures in an other thread.

But the above make in total 9 speakers. I am pretty sure that the Professional Hi-Fi (which is what I have) has 7 speakers, as following:

- 4 speakers in the doors (2 on each door)
- 2 speakers in the rear shelf
- 1 speaker in the dashboard (in front of the screen).

I checked under my seat, and alhtough I can see a mesh, there is no sound coming from there.

EDIT: According to realoem, there are only 2 speakers in the doors (1 in each door) and not 4. However, I am 99% sure that I can see 4 speakers (2 near the handle and 2 close to the footwell).

Yeah, I found them too. Sound is very poor for this upgrade (about €400)
