: all you need to do is create an opening between the trunk and the cabin. Bass is nothing but moving air. if the sub in the trunk can't move any air in the cabin.. no bass. Simple fix and your installer should have already done something about it.
: : 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

: : Any suggestions? It really bugs me that I spent a tidy
: : sum on a good stereo, but can't get much bass response.
