E93 Sub Install Whilst Maintaining Boot Space

Hi All,

Just thought i'd share my install with you all, as there may be some of you out there looking to install a subwoofer in your e93 without compromising the boot space. I decided to install the sub in the ski-hatch, using a custom made box and an ALpine SWR-T10 (the most powerful slim sub out there) alongside Alpines PDX Amplifiers, the result was astonishing.

2 x Earthquake undefloor 8" woofers we installed.

Any comments welcome. Thank You

I'm waiting for the JL 10TW3 shallow sub
I've had very good luck with JL products
But nice install
Is the gauge for volts?

Would love to hear your review of the JL subs. The gauge is for volts

They're in a slim line box I made





Havn't got any pics of the finished product unfortunately, got a bit excited and just threw it all into the car.

Nice work!!! Tempting but will forego for now. I remember driving into the base years ago in my souped up Honda and having to explain for several moments what all the wiring, amps , and digital volt gauge was for!!! They thought I had something explosive. Lol.
