Subject: Re: <E30> Bazookas in the trunk

I also have the SAS Bazooka although an 8" with RF 45w bridged (~75w). At first I was disappointed with the bass response and called SAS. They recommended two actions. First, move the tube AWAY from the back seat, pointed at the rear of the car. Secondly, punch a hole thru the rear deck to allow the trunk space to breathe. I sawed out a 5 x 7 hole and covered it with a speaker screen.

The results are amazing! Tremendous amounts of bass! I needed to adjust the active crossover DOWN to minimum to match up with the OEM head unit. I'll need to replace that unit next...
