I added an amp and bandpass box to the trunk. The bass sounded muffled because of the solid constuction of the trunk. Researching on the forum some suggested that one easy solution is to take out the play behind the arm rest in the back seat. My E34 does not have the ski bag option and when I took off the metal plate, all I saw was more insulation and another layer of thick carpet. Did you guys take out that insulation and cut through that carpet to get through the trunk? So when you put down the armrest, you could reach all the way through the trunk? I feel uneasy cutting through anything so I wanted to check if this process made a significant difference in letting the bass through.

Cutting through the deck seems to harsh for me and I don't really have the $$ to have a professional re-design a ported deck for me (wish I had :-( ). Thanks in advance for any suggestion or info you guys can provide.
