Followup question to getting more bass sound

First of all, my thanks to those of you who responded to my earlier posting regarding how to get more bass sound inside my 323i that has a MTX 10" Thunder 6000 subwoofer powered by a MTX 200W Amp RT2120. The problem I was having was that not enough bass sound was getting inside the car but that it was mostly being contained in the trunk.
The suggestion I was given was to punch out the ski-hole. Does my 323i (equipped with sport package only) have a ski-hole and if so, where is it located? Is the ski hole designed to be punched out or do I need to use a knife and actually cut out the ski hole? Thanks.

In the saloon, fold down the rear centre arm rest, and all will be revealed.

no arm rest? then open the boot (trunk) abd take out the trim that sits against the seat back. The ski sack cover plate should be visible.

It is held in place by about 20 tack welds - use a knife or chisel and hammer them out.

One point though, if the rear armrest does not fold down, then the base into the car will increase a little, but maybe not enough.

IMO, no significant improvement in bass when ski pass was opened up.

Grunty-Motor - Thanks for the info. I confirmed that my 323i does not have a rear center armrest, and as both you and fuschnicken pointed out, I may not get much improvement in bass sound in the car. I don't know what else I could do.
