Are there additional rear speakers with Harman Kardon? If so where are they located and does anyone have any pics. I searched the site and found front ones.

Thanks

No additional speakers as such. Where some people get confused and think that it is an 8 speaker system is because the rear speakers have 2 drivers each so that they can act as semi-sub woofers.

Thanks Adam so nothing in parcel shelf or in the boot?

I looked at the blurb on Mini website and it describes as eight speaker system

Nothing in the parcel shelf, and a pre-amp in the right hand side compartment of the boot. There are only 6 speaker 'units' in the car. Hope this helps.

Just for accuracies sake ... there *are* actually eight speakers in the car. The top position in each door has a tweeter mounted in front of a midrange.


As well, the rear speakers are dual voice coil 6x9s - allows more power from the HK amp without needing very high output voltages. So the HK amp has *ten* outputs, to *eight* speakers, in *six* positions.
No wonder people get confused! ;)

(some more Harmon Kardon system info here)
