Hi mate,

The speaker sizes for the E36 Saloon are as follows;

Front: 13cm Components
Rear: 13cm Components or Coaxials or even 6x9's with the correct pods.

The sizes are slightly different on the Coupe/Compact/Touring I believe, maybe someone else can confirm this?

Im sure the depth would be fine coz there is quite a lot of room behind them. The only thing is that you might not get the trims back over the front. I would try to get some flush ones. :thumbsup

Luckily, I have a spare set of BMW 3 series speakers sat in a carrier bag about 10 feet away, so I'll get the measurements and report back in about an hour...I'm lazy today!

Ok, so maybe an hour was a little bit of an over estimate. I made myself get up! haha

The stock speakers, which I'll take some pictures of later and post them up with the dimensions for future reference.

However, I babble on a little... The stock speakers are 13cm diameter, and 50mm deep (from the rear of the magnet to the mounting bracket)

Did you ever get round to putting them pics up?

You said the speakers are 50mm from mounting bracket to back of magnet, is there any room behind them?
In the footwell?

Cos all the speakers Ive seen are around 60mm mounting depth.

Although the size is quoted at 13cm (5 1/4"), I have actually fitted 6" speakers in there without any modification at all... 17mm (6 1/2") is a no go though.

Here is the standard speaker and the depth is 60mm


Here is inside the a panel in the passenger footwell, there is quite a lot of room but you will have to move the drain tube, i checked and it does seem to move a lot. :thumbsup



The only thing to check is that when i removed them from my other car there was a lot of soundproofing there that wasnt in the 318. I used 60mm depth speakers in there so i kept the soundproofing.

Hope this helps a bit mate :thumbsup
