I think 2 small subs, one under each front seat

So that makes 7 speakers and 2 small subs

I find it more than adequate, but I'm no audiophile. Mainly I like that it is versatile and can play radio, satellite radio, audio CD, mp3 CD, iphone/android input, USB stick mp3, all easily controlled via iDrive. Besides, while fairly quiet, it's not like the F30 has got a super insulated cabin like a Lexus or Buick, so I wonder how much you'd notice better sound quality while on the move. The bass is not that thumping, tho, so I guess if you're blasting hip hop all day long you might want to upgrade.
