Thread: under seat subwoofer ?

    under seat subwoofer ?

    Hi all...
    I have a late 2008 1.9ttid Aero saloon. It has the pretty standard 7 speaker set up with an amp in the boot..
    Has anyone tried fitting an under seat sub woofer?
    I was thinking of something like the Pioneer in the link below...

    https://www.dynamicsounds.co.uk/pion...-sub-150w.html

    Is there any reason i couldnt do this?
    Or have you a better solution for a better DEEP bass response.
    An E class Merc i used to own had the most fabulous rich and deep bass coupled with plenty of mids and highs..
    I suppose i have been spoilt....

    Any suggestions?

    P.S The head unit is the standard one.
    Thanks in advance...

    Thanks Kev....
    i am thinking about thinking of going down this route..
    An all in one unit with satnav and bluetooth sounds appealing.
    Ideally i wouldnt want something thats too fussy in appearance..

    Re: under seat subwoofer ?

    For what it's worth I have (just yesterday) added an under seat sub. Kenwood SW11.
    It's just what I needed to fill out the low end. Now sounds like a premium audio set up I had in a Lexus once, but not a crazy boy racer thump of course.
    I also have 6x9s amped up on rear shelf (with 4ch pioneer amp), they helped a lot, but the bass struggled to get through to the front of the car. I decided to keep the head unit as standard as I use my phone to connect all audio and sat nav via bluetooth/fm transmitter. I'm putting the money saved on head unit towards a beefy mobile data package which basically means i can stream anything live with no worries.
    Drop me a PM if you need any advice on installation

    Re: under seat subwoofer ?

    Sorry to sound selfish here, but is there any chance you would be able to PM me the same instructions please? Since I bought my 9-3 in September, I've been wanting more low end oomph and the standard 7 speaker system isn't quite up to my bass loving standard.

    Many thanks!
