About the Focal Integration IFBMW-S
A custom sound system upgrade for your BMW
The Focal component system directly replaces the factory BMW speakers.
A custom sound system upgrade for your BMW
You want to upgrade the factory speakers in your BMW, but you're not interested in making modifications to your vehicle to get better sound. Focal's IFBMW-S system provides you with a huge improvement in sound quality by letting you replace the BMW's front door tweeters and woofers with a set of custom speakers that fit right into the factory locations and plug into the existing wiring. Once these speakers are installed, you'll experience more clarity, punchier midrange, and more detailed bass lines — without having to cut new holes or run new wiring.
The woofers and tweeters mount directly to the BMW grilles; you also get mounts in case your BMW didn't have factory tweeters.
Includes most everything you need to complete the install
This package comes with almost everything you need to improve the sound in your car dramatically. You'll find a pair of 4" Polyglass woofers, each in a custom frame that mount to your door perfectly — no adapter needed. You'll clip the two aluminum inverted dome tweeters directly to the factory tweeter grilles. Don't worry if you don't have the factory tweeters — Focal provides you custom tweeter mounts just in case. This system comes with BMW speaker plug connectors, so they plug right into the factory speaker wiring. You'll also find most of the tools needed for the installation in the box.
Sounds great with factory power
Focal designed this set of speakers to deliver superb sound, even when powered by the BMW radio. But this system handles up to 40 watts RMS, so an aftermarket car stereo or an external amplifier will make these speakers sound even better.
Woofer grilles are not included; the factory grilles should be suitable for most applications.

Focal Integration IFBMW-S reviews
This set is a nice way to update/upgrade the tired 2011 factory speakers. Sound quality is now much more crisp. Installation was easy, and took me just a little over an hour to do both doors.

Got this product for my bmw serires 3 2017, this is really awsome, after install the tweeter sounds a bit higher but after using it you can notice that sound keeps cleaner and better. So, best option to upgrade your sound.
Pros: clear and quality sound

Purchased 2 sets of this component speaker set, front doors and rear doors... Will replace center channel and D-pillar rear hatch speakers at a later date... Focal states that they are compatible with only a few BMW models (my model wasn't listed as one of them) and Crutchfield has not yet researched my vehicle to verify fitment... So I am here to tell you that the Focal Integration IFBMW-S can and WILL fit in a 2016 BMW X6 with the Harman Kardon system... My installer stated that the only fabrication that they had to do was to make a small spacer to provide clearance of the window's glass and installed speaker on the front driver's side door. All other 3 doors were a perfect fit... No other fabrication or modification was needed... As far sound quality goes, I can definitely tell the difference between the Focals and the stock speakers... I am running all speakers with an additional 3 amp setup (2 Diamond Audio 5-channel amps, a Cerwin-Vega mono amp and the stock amp running the center channel) ... 5.1 surround sound is still intact and the Logic7 sounds amazing... My system can now handle more power and the vocals are much more clearer now. I have no complaints...
Pros: Excellent sound, handles more power. They fit 3 out of 4 doors perfectly...
Cons: According to my installer, when they installed my Focals, they needed to fabricate a small spacer to allow one of the speakers to clear the window's glass on front driver's side door only. Front passenger and both rear doors needed no spacer.

BMW has way better stock speakers than most Japanese cars, but if you are looking to improve this even better, you made the right choice. At first I find only minor noticeable improvement and I was upset. But after more or less 10 hours burn-in, the improvement was substantially noticeable!!! Details are crisper and punchier mid bass. So all in all my hard earned money were well spent! I'm loving this...
Pros: Great sound after burn-in
Cons: A little expensive, but hey...BMWs isnt cheap too...

There area a perfect fit for the 06-11 3 series sedan, and seem very well made. Having a set of Focal tower speakers in my home system made me think these would make a significant improvement - probably had lofty expectations. The clarity is improved over stock, however they are noticeably lower efficiency and create an imbalance with the OEM rears. If I shift the fade more to the fronts, the sub-woofers loose some power (they are best when fade is neutral). A local installer said that the MATCH may be a better choice as they are more efficient and all four corners are replaced. Too much work to remove and return.
Pros: clarity direct fit
Cons: require more power than BMW amp provides.

These fit perfectly, they are well made, and sound fantastic. I installed them in my 2008 E90 M3 sedan without any issues. Very, very happy with the results. For the rears, I used Focal Integration ISN 100. The ISN 100s are a poor buy compared to these... the woofer is much lighter weight in the ISN 100 and whimpier. While the tweeters look the same, they have different part numbers. If I were to do it again, I would be tempted to use these IFBMW-S in the front and rear. They aren't designed to fit the rear, but the woofer has the same bolt pattern. If you did try to use IFBMW-S in the rear of a 3-series, you would have to come up with a way to mount the tweeter. That would be the catch, but compared to the price of the ISN-100, it would be worth the effort.
Pros: Fit, quality, sound

Unfortunately does not fit many 3 or 4 series cars - the driver (magnet) is too deep and the window hits the speaker when you lower the window. Be very careful when ordering

Superb product. However, I own an X1, and figuring out how to install in the X1 was a little "do it yourself". Given, it is intended mostly for the 3 series, but it fits the X1 perfectly. Releasing the BMW connector was a little difficult as well, and some hints on that would have been helpful. If you've ever had a car door apart though, this won't be much trouble.
Pros: Ease of installation, high quality of audio
Cons: Cost, figuring out the install

First, Crutchfield is a class act organization from which to purchase and I appreciate their level of customer service. The IFBMW-S is a great OEM replacement option if you want the installation to remain stealth and keep the existing BMW amplifier. From a look and feel perspective, the size and weight of the IFBMW-S vs. the OEM Harman Kardon speaker conveys it's superior quality and potential. It's truly a plug & play system and once installed, the sound quality is amazing - much more definition and vocal quality. Clean, no distortion listening at the highest volume levels. I just replaced the front door speakers and may do the rear doors and deck at a later date, but no rush as I'm satisfied for now. I am definitely new Focal fan!
Pros: Free next day in delivery in VA. Plug & play and relatively quick DIY install. Great sound from existing OEM amplifier. Rich tonal quality.
Cons: Focal tweeter not a perfect replacement fit in existing tweeter location in F10 M5. Slight modification to tweeter housing made it work. Door panels are not as easy to remove and reinstall, but that's nothing against the product. Make sure to look up YouTube video to assist you with the installation.

Polyglass Cone: The woofer cone has a cellulose pulp base and is coated with a uniform deposit of hollow glass microballs. The addition of the Polyglass layer significantly increases the cone's rigidity without adding much weight. This combination takes advantage of the accuracy and neutrality of the hard outer surface, but maintains the superior damping characteristics of the cellulose pulp.
Surround: The woofers' rubber surrounds are resistant to ultraviolet rays, temperature extremes, and humidity, adding to the system's reliability and longevity.
Inverted Dome Tweeter: Each tweeter uses an inverted aluminum dome, producing a broad sound stage. If the BMW factory system has separate tweeters, the Focal tweeters mount behind the factory grille. If the factory system does not have separate tweeters, use the included custom housings to mount the Focal tweeters.
Crossovers: The included speaker wire has in-line crossovers for the woofers and tweeters. The crossover slopes are 18 dB/octave and the crossover point is 4 kHz.
