2006-2012 BMW 3 Series Sub Box Forward Fire E90 E92 Ported

The 2006 BMW 3 Series has always been a popular platform for people to fix up and a stereo is one good way to do it. The problem that I’ve run into with BMWs is that it is always difficult to get a good amount of sound into the cabin since the trunk is so well sealed off from the cabin. I designed this forward firing sub box to but up against the back of the rear seat and blow/force the sound into the cabin. The rear armrest can be unbolted and a good sized hole can be cut out. I used the factory bracing ribs as a guide and cut a “base ball home plate” shape behind the armrest. Another benefit of this design is that since the subs are only a couple inches from the seat back it not only forces the sound into the cabin but it also gives some acoustic gain from firing so close to the seat back. Plus since there is no sound firing at the trunk lid, very little, if any vibration occurs.

This is our ported design that is 2.11cuft which can accommodate one to two 8″ subs, one to two 10″ subs or one 12″ sub. This design is for maximum airspace and the depth of the box can be reduced if desired. This depth allows full access to the storage bin in the floor of the trunk and comes right to the edge of the floor storage lid. Feel free to contact me with any requests.

This is a ported subwoofer enclosure. Ported subwoofer enclosures are for customers who want louder, deeper bass with the lower bass more pronounced. Because of the ported design, the bass will not be as tight and punchy as a sealed box, but there is typically double the bass of a sealed box with the same subs and power. A sealed subwoofer box has a tight and punchy bass that is more articulate and more true to the music with a more natural sound. If tight, punchy bass is what you want then our sealed designs will be what you want.

This design is for maximum airspace and the airspace of the box can be reduced if desired. Our ported boxes are designed according to your subwoofer’s specifications. No two boxes will really be alike. At checkout, there is a “Comment” box, please give us the model number of your subs and we will build the enclosure as needed. We tend to tune our boxes low, around 34-37hz. If you have any specific requests, please feel free to let us know.

This box is made out of 3/4″ MDF and is fully carpeted in matching carpet. The nickel plated spring loaded speaker terminals are mounted on the back of the box and the speaker wires are soldered on for a solid and reliable connection.

  • We use Stinger wire on all of our boxes.
  • Acoustic stuffing will make the enclosure sound like it is in a larger airspace. It will give your woofer a little deeper of a tone, but will also take away a little from the upper bass. If our enclosure is a little small on the airspace needed for the woofers, then we would recommend the acoustic fill.
