In Reply to: Alpine stereo in Y2K 323i, Help! posted by Paul on September 23, 1999 at 01:12:27:
I'm not sure if this would work, but I know the HK system has the wanna-be subs firing directly into the cabin. Maybe cut a little panel out of where the HK "subs" would go (on the shelf behind the back seats) and mount it there, having the sub hanging down into the trunk? Hope this helps.
: I just had a top of the line Alpine system installed
: in my 323i and am finding that the system is really bass-shy. I had the shop install an enclosed 10"
: sub-woofer in the trunk followed by a 12" to no avail.
: The installer said that because the 323i is so well
: insulated, that the bass is not coming through to
: the cabin. When opening the trunk the bass is more
: than adequate, but not from inside the car.
: Any suggestions? It really bugs me that I spent a tidy
: sum on a good stereo, but can't get much bass response.
