I've been studying this problem myself, as I am planning on upgrading my
sound system. I sure don't want to sacrifice any trunk space or the
utility of my fold-down rear seat.
Has anyone checked out the new "Stealthbox" that JL Audio has come out with
for the E36? This is a brand new product that they just added to their web
site. Check it out at:
If anyone has any first hand experience with this product or any other good
ideas, let me know.
