I can vouch for the tweeters being a MUST upgrade no matter which system you have.
My car has the Burmester and I was not happy with how the tweeter disappears at higher volumes so I got bought a set of the Dynaudios a few weeks ago from Nick.
When I opened the box I was shocked, I thought I was looking at a factory part! Nick is a true craftsman and his attention to detail is amazing. He also is EXTREMELY helpful and very prompt when replying to questions.
No issues with fit, grill clearance, and its plug and play..

You need to remove the AC vent on both sides and squeeze the big clip (see pic), as you squeeze push up and the grill will release enough to pop it off. If you try to pry from the top you will damage your dash and break the grill. So start from underneath the grill NOT from the top..
I also recommend buying a set of super long needle nose pliers, Home Depot sells a crazy long pair that gives you the leverage to push up as you squeeze the monster clip

What is the record for the largest subscribed group buy in less than a week on Rennlist? These are a hit!

And the Boxster, Cayman, GT cars, and Turbo guys haven't even bought these yet.

Remove the ignition switch trim piece and the small passenger side trim below the AC vents. Both vents pull out fairly easy, just be careful not to pull too hard as there are plugs attached to them.

The group buy doesn't end until Christmas Day, so logistically I'm not sure how to pull that off. The original goal was to have all sets built and shipped within 6-10 business days after the group buy ends. That said, I was anticipating 20-25 orders. They'll go out relatively quick, I just need to make sure we didn't break the supply chain.

Thank's for sharing your thoughts, I'm really happy you're liking the new tweeters.

The air vent removal is a nice trick for removing the grilles. I'll have all of that in my install/how-to video this weekend.

Thank you to everyone for the continued support. It makes me extremely happy to see that so many people on here are in tune to how passionate we are about our craft. I've got the list updated and I should have the video to post up this weekend.

Can these be done to upgrade the regular Bose system? If so to what effect? Complications of doing so? Will I need to do additional work or changes to my Bose system if this is done. Thanks. Looks like a great product/upgrade!
