has anyone seen or had custom mounted subwoofers mounted in their trunk? I think nothing looks as halfassed than a bandpass box chillin in your trunk with th amplifier screwed to the back of it. (turst me, thats how i used to have mine ) but now i want to do something a bit better and a little more refined. I dont know if you have seen something that was a good idea somwwhere or have something cool done yourself. Let me know what y'all think

Go with JL audio. They make something called stealthboxes. I was of the same opinion you had in that I didn't want some big ass box in the trunk of my bimmer. Stealth boxes come in a pair. They are 8" sub-woofers that replace your rear deck speakers. They take up about the same amount of space as your existing rear deck speakers and believe me they sound great. I think I spent about 300-400 for mine, but well worth the dough.

Good Luck!

i am making 2 ten inch sub boxes boxes out of mdf and covering them with carbon fiber i am going to have one on each side of my trunk close to the trunk opening, i am going to put carbon fiber where the battery tray would be there fore i can put one of the subboxes there(maximizing trunk space) then i am buying some carbon fiber sandwhiched with styrofoam(wont bend believe me) and mounting my amps on that then mounting that to the back of my seats, therefore having my amps up against my seat and out of the way and my boxes out of the way as well. i am using audiobahn pro compression subs so the boxes are not that big

f*ck the JL Stealthboxes... small, not much bass and it's basically an infinite baffle design. They're also absurdly priced for a pair of 8s -- around $500 bucks.

Instead, I HIGHLY recommend the dual 10-inch box made by Bavarian Soundwerks It's made of MDF, carpeted and mounts under the rear deck with NO modification to the vehicle. They make it for the E36 and E46 3-series. I bought one and loaded it with a pair of A/D/S 310 rs/4 dual-voice coil subs

The guys at Bavarian Soundwerks are BMW enthusiasts and audiophiles, and some of the most helpful people I've run across. I can't recommend them more highly.

I mounted my A/D/S 650.2 amp on the back of the rear seat. I've got some photos and plan to post a thread on the install before long.
