Custom subwoofer armest pics!
 
Hey

Installed this way back, just posting up some picks it was fun to make and the sound is EXQUISITE. The lower frequencies flow well throughout the car much different than a box. Its less in the head more in the body. It comes right through the seats it is simply amazing one of my favourite mods. Also I totally recommend Shuriken high performance batteries. I installed the SK-BT120 and it made a HUGE difference in sound I really mean this. And my idle was like butter and car ran much better with all honesty. Without the stock battery I couldn't shake the rear view. With the battery upgrade the system shakes the **** out of the e46 mirror, which is pretty damn beefy compared to a civic mirror or something.

Specs:
-10" Special Edition 1300 Watt MTX Subwoofer
-1000 W Exile Amp
-Shuriken SK-BT120 (its an awesome beast)
-Ground Wire Upgraded to 0 gauge Stock is already a Large enough gauge which is Awesome
-6.0 Farad Power Acoustics Capacitor

Its spot welded. Just hit it a couple times with your fist near the welds and it will pop right out!

Got it! Thanks

nice job, might actually consider doing that. iv been wanting to get rid of my 15's. too much weight IMO. might get 2 10's though and a real box

kaldE46 01-26-2012 03:59 PM

Love the idea. Does it make the car sound like it's ratteling on the outside?

Nah actually I thought of it by myself at the time. I had the ski package. I actually had to just unbolt the frame holding the bag. I tried this setup with a box, but it didn't even compare. The E46 has a very sealed trunk. :thumbup:

Thanks for comment!

It did at first until I installed dynamat behind the licence plate typically what makes rattling is the licence plate.

Nice Work! I wish I didn't have the ski package although it made it much easier to install. Im sure the bass is intensely tight with the metal seat backing. How is it driving a vert? must be nice

I used to just have a sub in the trunk but it would rattle the license plate and some outside trim, so I went a similar route, except I have a ported box mated to the skipass.
