rear trunk panel

Hey guys,
I am currently in the process of upgrading the sound system in my '88 325is. Upon assessing the trunk fi a location for my subs, i hit a wall (literally). As u guys probably already know, there is no arm rest slot. Any suggestions? Would i have to do any cutting?

Unless you have the ski hole, there's no way in or out of that trunk beyond the rear speaker cutouts. There are several smaller holes which you can pass wires through and just leave your sub in the trunk, which I did, though those holes are extremely difficult to get stereo wiring of any respectable gauge through.
I'd not bother cutting anything, that wall is made of..probably steel, and it's there for a good reason.

Four Five Six - It's on.

I took out my back seat, and the panel behind the back rest in the trunk, and ran wires through the lower corner.

Poke a rod or some soldering wire through the corner from the trunk and attach your wires to that and pull it through.

Youll find a way, if not use mine
