HiFi vs Stereo - speaker location?

Hi all. I've just got my new G20. And it's supposed to be with a 10-speaker HiFi setup.

But... I am a bit worried it's a standard stereo instead. Can you please let me know where are the speakers located in the HiFi option?

Do you guys have the woofers under the front seats or not?

I come from E90 with the absolutely stunning sound system and 2 woofers under the seats. Is it supposed to be the same in the G20? Or it is organized differently in the new model? As I don't see any speakers under the seats...

It should be mid range one each door (4), tweeter on each front pillar (2), woofer under each front seat (2) and I think center console (2).

That just specifies whether it's the hifi or HK stereo.

It appears in the OPís market there is a stereo system that is below the HiFi stereo and he wants to make sure he got the HiFi. The HiFi stereo is the midrange offering in many markets.

Mostly correct. Center console speaker has mid-range and tweeter. There is no woofer in the center console.

Does anyone know the wattage breakdown for the speakers in the H/K system?

Want to know how much power the stock subwoofers get.

All, thanks for all the responses. It looks like I have the HiFi version. I just didnít look deep enough under the seats to find the woofers. I looked one more time and found them

The main difference in speakers between Stereo and HiFi is tweeters - Stereo system has none.
