Several months ago I posted a topic complaining about the lack of bass response in my '97 528i and asked about installing a sub-woofer. I got many excellent responses, but all required me to invest between $350-$600 dollars. So I did my usual thing: I procrastinated. Meanwhile, my father-in-law (after driving my car) decided he had to have one for himself. He arrived at my house the other day with his identical '97 528i. He commented on how good his stereo sounded which made me get in and have a listen. HMMMM.... After hearing it and confirming his observation, I decided to disassemble the rear deck of my car and see what I could see. Lo and behold, the entire sub-woofer section was disconnected. I reconnected the large connector to the box and had instant bass. I bought the car from my sister who had bought it new and she said the stereo always sounded the same making me think that BMW just forgot to connect it. I wonder who else out there has sufferd this same problem.
