hey guys, i was wondering what would be the best solution to "base-up" my e30 convertible... (i dont need any super-extra-shaking woofer but just something decent and pleasant) i think a tube subwoofer is what people recommend for convertibles, or at least this one since woofer in trunk does no good (my friends tried to put a sub into the trunk on his e30 convt. but did not realize that the there is the sheet-metal divider between the trunk and the rear seats so it just sounded really horrible).
So, what is the best place to put any sub (behind the driver seat or maybe fit it under the glove box?), i have MTX AMP i would also like to use, should i install it under the driver seat?
i did not find any other topic dealing with this convertible...
I'm very happy with the Basslink in my sedan, now that I have the gains properly adjusted. EP is an installer, but I doubt that many other people have tried both solutions in the same car to give you a perspective.
Based on the reviews I've read it seams to be quite adequate for a sedan or coupe, but there are a lot of comments on review sites that make me doubt how it will do with the wind noise of a convertible top being down.
That's my concern....loud enough to still sound good at 60 with the top down.
bass links hit far harder, louder, and clearer than bass tubes. As for moutning options, inside the car would be ideal. Unfortunately, there's not really room. The best thing to do is play around with where it is and which direction it faces until you get the desired effect. Infinity also makes another variant of the basslink for trucks and hatchbacks. Retail is around $500, but my discount w/ them cuts that more than in half. I haven't read the specs much on them , but I think that if they are thin enough and enough foam could be cut away but still provide support for passengers, it could fit under the rear seats.
