well i finally upgraded my HK a little bit a couple weeks ago. added a new JL Audio 500/1 and my old subs (2 10" JL Audio W3s) from a previous car that has been sitting in my room for over a year. the install was very clean but it didn't seem finished



so i took it back today and had a flush panel made and it's super clean now :D



here's another from a little bit futher back



not bad huh? i'm very pleased :)

thanks guys :) it's not anything crazy like some of the guys on here but it's exactly what i was looking for, a clean install with a usuable trunk. the carpet doesn't match 100% but it's pretty close and it's WAY better than the black carpet the box used to be.

Mr. 330 > i think i ended up paying a little over $400 for it ("package deal" kind of thing). I know you can get it from ebay cheaper or whatever but i feel much safer with an authorized JL dealer.

Bobo83 > post em up :thumbup: i would like to see it. not quite sure what you mean about the swinging door but it sounds interesting :D

Hi

I'm also interested in installing something similar. A few questions:

- where did you connect the JL with the sound from the head unit? Bevore the h/k amp?
Do you have a BMW radio build in or did you replace the radio?

- ski sack, is it open? or whereelse does your sound find a way to get in the car?

- what volume does your sub box have for the two JLs?

I love the look, it's hella clean. I was wondering, do you have a template of the panel? I'll buy it from you if you have it. It'll same me a lot of time. Maybe you can trace it or something. I would love to do it to my car too. Thanks in advance.

how much did that setup cost you to do? i'm interested in that as long as it is not difficult to take out.

bazzman > Factory head unit and I did not punch through the ski-pass. I didn't think I would benefit from it much since my subs are rear firing :dunno:

fuschnicken > thx man :D yep, i have close to my whole trunk left ;)

tuan409 > I don't have a template or anything because a shop did it for me. If you are close to me and you wanna come check it out, you are more than welcome to. PM me if you do.

Okey thanks!

Next question: where did you connect the new amp to the sound signal? Before the first big h/k amp (in the trunk on the left side) or after the first h/k amp and before the little sub-h/k amp?
