You most likely need an amp and a sub or two...unless you can put a bass drum in your trunk and hire a midget to beat on it.

Any suggestions on the amp and sub?
Someone on bimmerfest suggested Alpine MRP-M350 and JL Audio 10W3v2. I don't know anything about installation, where should I find help for that?

There's a lot of good stuff you can use out there. I've seen a couple of people using JL 250/1 with a pair of stealthboxes. If you want to keep it simple, them I'd suggest that.

Technic, how much did it cost you for the hardware, and how much for the install?

Stealthbox: $400.00
250/1: $300.00
Installation: Priceless (I did it myself, spent only $20 getting the left enclosure professionally cut and $60.00 for the amp aluminum support bracket)

If you want to save a couple of bucks, you can get the amp and subs here used. Or, of course, ebay.

$700 for a cleanly installed amp and sub is a pretty good deal.

A poster on bimmerfest got an Alpine MRP-M350 amp ($165) driving a JL Audio 10W3v2 enclosed 10" sub ($220).

Why is his around 400 as opposed to the 700? I guess you get what you pay for? I'm not looking for top of the line stuff, just above average bass.

--- edit ---


So I've seen that the Stealthbox and the JL 250/1 is a good combo, but it looks like it will run into the $600.

Is there anything cheaper than this that doesn't compromise much? Around the $300 range?

What about the Stealthbox and the JL 250/1 used? What would that be around?
