Just bought an '04 330 CiC and I'm really bummed by the crappy bass response of the supposedly enhanced Harman-Kardon sound system.

Is there any easy way to truly beef up the kick by...
...tweaking the amp settings somehow?
...replacing the stock amp?
...replacing the sub in the ski passthrough?
...something I'm not thinking of?

I'm already having the Business CD HU replaced with the Empeg deck I've had for five years so at least that'll be top-quality.

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated!!

remove the stock 'subs' and amp and replace them with a single JL 12W6V2 powered by a JL 500/1 amp. its not overly loud and will provide the perfect kick.

its worth it.

What did was, replaced all my speakers with Focals, 10" sub in the back, and a audison amp. Hits all the right places, hearing the vocals and feeling the thump from the sub is orgasmic.
