E39 estate subwoofer enclosure options

Recommended Posts

Hi

im looking into this and the enclosure that I’ve seen commonly sold replaces the rear right trim panel but isn’t  “smooth” with the other trim panels in the boot area:

 

BMW 5 Series E39 Touring Custom Fit MDF 10" Sub Box Subwoofer Enclosure Bass https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F182909509659

 

are there any others?

i’m not Looking to sacrifice boot space.

ive bought a 10” Focal shallow sub P25FS which will run in a 12 L sealed enclosure.

Thanks

Hi,

 

There's no other ready made E39 Touring subwoofer enclosures for high quality/capable subwoofer drivers as far as I'm aware. This design has been around and advertised on ebay for quite a while now - perhaps 2 years or so?

 

A few Touring owners US side have purchased and .. found it bit of a faff and mission to fit properly. They've got there in the end though, so it's not an 'easy' fit enclosure, you'll need to work at it. Check this link

There 'might' be others around but not seen anything advertised as easily/readily available. 

 

I had mine custom made and run a JL 8W3v3. I wanted powerful, clean, smooth, musical sub bass and to keep the original carpeted trim panel and have the subwoofer play directly out into the load area - i.e nothing covering it and have it so it was easily removeable to allow access to the light cluster cover;

I went on the 'left' side as there was nothing in that location and on my 'right' side I have a dual battery split charging system so no space for an enclosure. 

 

In recent years, the shallow depth/flat subwoofer designs have really improved so you should get fantastic sub bass out of the Focal as it needs 12L and the 'basser' enclosure is 15L

 

What's the rest of the setup for the car going to be?

 

Cheers, Dennis!
