Looking to add a decent sub

Hello, I have a 2001 BMW 3 series, I am looking to get a decent sub (not garbage, but no need for top of the line) I'm basically looking for a cleaner bass hit with some oomph but I'm in no way looking to shake the neighborhood, bass quality matters more than how hard it hits. Can anyone recommend a good combo or all the parts separately (which ever is cheapest) that would be much appreciated.

Thank You

Are you looking to add a subwoofer to your stock stereo? Or do you have an aftermarket head unit?

Coupe or sedan? I have a coupe and installed a pair of Tang Band 6.5" subs in the rear package shelf. Basically I removed the 2 punch out panels in the shelf. These cover the holes used by the HK subs. I had to enlarge the holes. I used an electric grinder with a cut off wheel. That steel is quite thick, a dremel won't cut it. Made mdf mounts and sealed up the rear woofer holes. They are powered by an Alpine 250 watt rms amp. The sound is great!

I have a Pioneer DEH-X6700BT, so aftermarket. Also it's a convertible model

I have these speakers laying around lol. Never installed them as I got a 12" bm mkiv instead to deal with the pounding hehe... I wish I could rig these in somehow for more unnecessary noise ***128514;
