How easy is it to fit the Burmester tweeters? The door cards need removal yes ?

Carphone 10-23-2017 05:32 AM

yes, need to open the door panel, but once you open the door panel, you will know how to install.
It only takes around 15-20 minutes for our staffs to install this...

Use T30 screwdrivers to loose the 2 screws on the door panel then you can take out the door panel.

Issue Handled.

NFAREVIEW 01-18-2018 05:48 PM

I just wanted everyone to know that the item you get is not as described. He stated above that it comes in retail packaging and yet this is how mine came. No box, no instructions, no indication on which speaker is for which door. Nothing. Hopefully these work as I'll be paying a radio shop to install them and don't want to get screwed out of that money too.

We sent the complete new goods with retail box, just check with our shipping agent, he said DHL inspect the goods randomly of each container and this time unfortunately your goods is checked by them and after inspection they did not put the goods back to box, just use their DHL bag to pack it. Sorry about that, this is also the first time we encounter this, all members in this forum bought from us know that they never receive goods from us without a packing box.

And since there was not a single form of documentation, how do I know this unit is the correct unit with updated control box for the changes they made with the 2018 LED lighting system?

I've yet to install it. I still haven't heard from the seller on how to confirm I was sent the correct 2018 control unit nor was there any install instructions included on what connectors to connect and which ones to leave unconnected.

Hello
As I have explained, we have internal process to deal with the order, we hardly make a mistake like you order 2017 version but we send 2018 version.
The goods you get is correct one, it has mark on the packing box, just it is ripped off by shipping agent, but it is correct one, please install it, any questions you can post here.

My advice to you is to be more helpful. A lot of people on this board will buy this product. But we are all waiting to see how it goes for this guy.

Why can't you post a document with detailed install instructions for him?

Exactly. All I want to know is what serial numbers on my unit prove its a 2018 module so I don't waste time paying for an install. That and CLEAR install instructions for my SPECIFIC car would be nice....since there was no box, instructions or any documentation.

Hello, most of our products has installation instructions on our website, in the product page, there's link to the installation manual, here is the instructions.
http://www.gzcarphone.com/installati...ry-tweeter_n24
And the things is many client in USA buy our speaker, they do the installation by themselves, because it is easy, for my staff only takes 15 minutes to do the installation. Just open the door panel and follow below picture to do the cable connection that's all.

https://cimg9.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.mbw...5e8a1b16a1.png
Since the sticker on the packing box is already gone, so we don't know how to explain to you that is 2018 version, we can only guarantee that it is 2018 version.

So you don't put product number stickers on the control box? Because it has one. Wouldn't that identify the unit specific to certain model years?

And yeah I clicked on those instructions, no where does it say what to do with the added control box like where I'm supposed to mount it so the door panel will reinstall correctly. Nowhere does it say the proper way to mount the new speaker, screw torque settings, wire routing, nothing. Of course I can install it. But If I pay a shop $100 to do it and they end up frying my radio, ECU, lighting, etc guess what, it's on them. You need some serious help in selling a retail product.

Yeah i agree with you, that sounds dodgy. Even if they randomly open it, they wouldn't throw out the packaging i would think.

As the business placed their product in this forum to grow their business , DO THE RIGHT THING by your customers - we are all watching you.

Hope it gets sorted out soon.

Hi mickhoog & NFAREVIEW I had the Rotary Tweeters installed last November 2017
and they are still working very well.
All of the information you need is in this forum or just google them.
If you think it would be best to get a audio expert to install them like i did
for only a hundred bucks all you worries would be over.
I did buy the from Carphone and they look really great and i am very happy i put them in my car.https://cimg1.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.mbw...8fcc08952b.jpg

I meant imitation clearly!

My point is is this a sound upgrade or a cosmetic upgrade?

wassup61 02-02-2018 08:31 AM

My guess is these are chinese knockoffs that are not licensed and contain no Harman hardware... Strictly cosmetic, not MB OEM

The tweeter is an important part of a sound system. I already have the non-3D burmester in my E63 so it wouldn't make sense to downgrade that to a no-name chinese E63,

@vicviper Do you know if it is possible to order the actual Burmester 3D tweeters and retrofit those on a car with the lower level Burmester system?

Gee, where did you get that idea? Funny quote. You had me laughing.
Another post mentioned Harmon. I don’t think Bermester is part of Harmon I tl, which by the way is now part of Samsung.

Hey y’all! I agree they can do a better job including instructions in the box with better details. I purchased mine from the same people and installed it myself after asking, they email me instructions.. However it didn’t give much details but a few pics just like what was posted on this thread. However what I can definitely for sure attest for is the fact that the product work really well. It is louder and clearer than the original tweeter that comes with the car. Mine is a 2017 E300 with the standards Burmester system. I installed the tweeters in October 2017 and it still works just fine. Don’t know if it’s the original tweeter or a chinease knock off but even if it’s a chniese knock off, they damn sure did a great job. I would recommend it. Here are some pics...

I hope you know that all the parts in your car are not made in Germany but made under license for Benz from around the world.
i am sure you look at you clock every day, do you know which country it is from?
I do not care where its from as long as it works well and has a good standard of workmanship to it.
If it worked out to be no good i would just put it in the bin and put the old ones back on.
Hope you get the part number for actual Burmester 3D tweeters and retrofit them to your car.
I have an idea for you go to the nearest Mercedes Benz dealership order a set of actual Burmester 3D tweeters today book in it for the replacement of old ones and Bob's your uncle.
We all get to see the pics next week and have a good look at them.

Update: Had them installed today at my local car audio shop

The drivers side didn't work fully at first (rotating) but then it started working. They look and sound good but I DO NOT like the transition of colors in the Multi-Color Ambient Light option that the 2018's have. Instead of a nice gradual switch in colors when the switch happens from top panels to lower panels and back, it just pops to the next color, its distracting...it kills the mood...BAD.

For those unfamiliar with the 2018's I'll try to give an example. Red Moon is my wife's favorite setting. It divides the LED's into red and blue areas of the car and dash and it slowly switches the colors and when it does whatever that color makes when mixed is what everything turns to until they switch. So red and blue make purple right? Well now instead of a smooth flow of red to blue to purple and back again you have the tweeter in your field of view just hard switching to the next color like a freaking flashing Christmas tree light! So now she has to resort to just going back to the 2017 option of a single cabin color. Does anyone else have a 2018 with this? Does it switch smooth or hard cut to the next color? Or did they send me the wrong non 2018 unit?

I currently have a 2018 P3 E43 and I am planning to install those, but the seller still didn't reply to my email asking about the price and whether those tweeters are gonna include the "S" logo on them or will I get the blank ones just like in the pictures of his instructions. Once I install them, I'll definitely let you know if the colors will switch softly in the multi-color mode :y

Its the Chinese New Year so don't expect a response till end of Feb. They take two weeks off. The speakers sound good and come with the logo. My only issue is the lighting as shown in this video I set to unlisted.

I think they have 2 models from other threads. One with only 3 colors, and the better one with more colors. Do you get the better one?

Thanks!

The sellers link is the 1st post on page 1...the tweeter selection is based on what model your putting them into...i.e. 2017 E-Class with 64 color ambient light selection...I'm about to buy a pair myself.

I never tried. Call and let us know if they will sell just the Burmester rotating tweeters. I assume its plug and play just like these.

my dealer said there not compatible and Mercedes makes it extremely hard to retrofit anything

I think they look really cool and have contacted the Seller several times over the last few days without a response. I guess they are still celebrating the Chinese New Year. ;)

The seller have just replied to me. I have ordered the 2018 tweeters. I hope that those would work with the multi-color feature. I'll let you guys know once I install them.

I did, but I was hoping that CarPhone made a modification after watching your video. If they did made some new tweeters that worked with the multi-color, I'll post here so that you can get yours replaced. :y

Participant 02-25-2018 03:36 AM

Having watched NFAREVIEW's video above, I don't understand why anyone would order these in a 2018 car without the seller's confirmation that it will work properly with multi colour and clarification as to why the above did not work properly.

Otherwise it's potentially 500 bucks to buy and install these, the installation costs of which one will never recoup, and I for one couldn't live with that limitation.

Won’t adding a Chinese Burmester tweeter affect sound quality? Throw the whole system off?

Sort of agree, but firstly the feedback is that it improves the sound and secondly, the OEMs are probably made in China anyway :p.

I don't believe they improve the sound unless you have the base sound system.

However I believe these may have the non 3D burmester tweeter in them

I think that only the covers are original, but the rotating tweeters are “same as original" as you can see in the item description here:

I didn't think that way. In your post, you thought that those were originals and when I visited the page, I noticed what was written in the item description so I posted just in case if people who would only buy the original part didn't notice. To be honest, it looks more authentic than the Chinese tweeters sold here. :)

This seller in Berlin ONLY sells dozens of Genuine MB Parts(look at all his other items for sale and his feedback), so I'm quite sure, and you should be also, that it is 100% the Real thing. IMO

Instead of a nice gradual switch in colors when the switch happens from top panels to lower panels and back, it just pops to the next color, its distracting...it kills the mood...BAD.

For those unfamiliar with the 2018's I'll try to give an example. Red Moon is my wife's favorite setting. It divides the LED's into red and blue areas of the car and dash and it slowly switches the colors and when it does whatever that color makes when mixed is what everything turns to until they switch. So red and blue make purple right? Well now instead of a smooth flow of red to blue to purple and back again you have the tweeter in your field of view just hard switching to the next color like a freaking flashing Christmas tree light! So now she has to resort to just going back to the 2017 option of a single cabin color. Does anyone else have a 2018 with this? Does it switch smooth or hard cut to the next color? Or did they send me the wrong non 2018 unit?

How much does it cost for your audio shop to install this pair of speakers?

Not quite. I did some messaging with the Berlin seller as well. This is what he told me:

this item is not original, but is made with original burmester tweeter, also is available for w213 with complete installation wires and 2 door computers for plug and play, total price for entire installation set + genuine original burmester aluminum grill covers - 850usd + 45usd transport costs.

I avoid the issue by not knowingly buying stuff shipped directly from China. If I want something Chinese, I buy it through a US distributer such as Amazon.

I got the same as yours. No packaging, manuals. It just came with a white box. Custom check is BS. It works ok, but it took around 1.5 hrs to install. Some parts are tearing off, so you need to adjust it well. Just be very CAREFUL when installing it.

Ayes303 03-16-2018 01:31 AM

Update: Got them installed today. The multi-color feature doesn't work for me too :/. It's okay for me since I rarely use the multi-color feature. The original box being thrown away by customs is a lie, I got mine in a white foam box without instructions too.

Figured I could lend my experience.

Emailed gzcarphone a few weeks back. They claimed that the people who received units that didn't work properly in their 2018's didn't request the 2018 models (or received the wrong ones), and promised that they have a unit that works with the 2018's (just like the post above does). I even got a little excited because when I got the package, it was in a full retail box with "2018" listed on the sticker on the box. Alas, one of the wires coming from the control box said "2017 E class" so I tampered my expectations. Here are a few photos of the shipment that I received:

https://cimg6.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.mbw...c5df745415.jpg
https://cimg7.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.mbw...3e38dce9c8.jpg


Cliff notes: It does not work with the multi-color animation as claimed by gzcarphone. I received a box in full retail getup, with "2018" sticker on it, and after EXPLICITLY telling gzcarphone that I had a 2018 and having them CONFIRM that they would send the right part. And of course... the LED colors "jump" from color to color when multi-color animation is activated.

*sigh*

Perhaps there's a language barrier? Technically, they "work" with "multi-color", just not the "animation" aspect. Truthfully I wasn't too concerned as I don't use the multi-color option (or at least, the multi-color "animation" option. I find it distracting), but if anyone is on the fence or actually believes they'll get a version that works with their 2018 "multi-color animation" option, perhaps you should think again.

Ayes303 03-24-2018 06:01 AM

I have contacted the seller about the multi-color problem and he have tried helping me to get it to work. I couldn't fix it so he sent me this email:
"I understand what you meant.

Firstly I want to confirm to you the one you receive from us is 2018 version, not 2017 version, otherwise the light will be not turnning on.

Secondly about the animation color changing, till now, this is already best we can do, because as you know our product is aftermarket product not OEM, we have to decode the canbus data from the car then make the code into our control box, this animation changing code we can not do so far.

But what I think is like this:

1, you are not changing the color all the time, it is hardly can notice this difference, to be honestly, we are selling around 500sets each month in Korea and Japan market same product as we send to you, but we do get complaint same as this issue.

2, The color is just same as original ambient light.

3, The most important thing is that it improve the sound quality in the car. Many clients feedback to us they think the sound quality is better than the original Burmester tweeter, they like it very much.



I know there are 2 other manufacturers making same products as us, but I promise you will never find another suppliers' goods quality is better than ours."

I guess we would have to wait for a new version that would support the multi-color feature.

I emailed carphone last night to initiate the return process, will update and let you all know how simple the process is. If they don't get back to me in a few days, I'll start a complaint with PayPal.

I made an impulse buy for these the other day, and they arrive on Thursday. Not sure whether I'll use them or not, but since I was going back to the OEM tweeters I wanted to give myself an option to spruce up their look. These were the best looking "covers" on ebay (there are several styles from other sellers).

I bet you the odds are very high that they were manufactured in China, despite what it says. I think that country manufactures more “bootleg” items than it does original ones. The only thing I would buy from them on line are foam applicator pads. That’s it. That’s how much I distrust them. I feel bad for the guy who ended up with the blown tweeter. Install the original speakers back, take the loss, call it a learning experience and go home.

Marc Kaplan 04-28-2019 12:00 PM

Just had mine installed, from GZcarphone, cost about 90.00 in labor, but well worth it. They look great, not sure yet how much they improve the front soundstage, but I have yet to really test them out.
On a related note, has anyone noticed how the midrange speaker covers could double as cheese graters, yikes!
