Thumbs up Excellent

Gentlemen, I installed this tiny sub over the weekend. I just used high level input as the sub had the inputs for it. Modified the enclosure and resealed it so I could mount it to the back of the seat, and it sounds great! I have the premium sound with the idrive. Definitely rounds out the system, all passengers raved.

If anyone would like my tips/lessons learned on modifying the sub for mounting it on the back of the seat so that it is still sealed and the seat folds well please PM me.

Thanks for the great DIY!

Hate to do this considering the age of this thread. But me and my buddies have been trying to hook up a basslink to my 08 e92 335i w/ logic.. Everything works but cant find the friggin remote wire. I everything single DIY in regards to remote wire; thin black wire (cant find), power wire (dam sub turns on as soon as i plug it in). So I came to the conclusion, must be the power wire but does it really turn off after 5 minutes and why does it power on as soon as all the wires are plugged in. Really just want to hook up this system without running any wires to the front etx.... So only option is to use the LVT if so, where do you hook the trigger wire too (green) on the LVT or run it to the power wire like it says on a majority including this one and hope it shuts off after five minutes. But still cant figure out why it would power the sub on as soon as i connect the sub. Help would be greatly appreciated been trying to figure this dam thing out for three days. thank you!

Did you read in post #1 about the LVT? OP tapped a positive speaker output to simulate a remote wire. Tough to parse your question...

Thanks for the DIY

Here is my install. I did it exactly except I ran a wire from the fuse box for the remote power, I got a LVT but it just wouldn't work

Sorry to necro this thread, but thanks OP for the post really helped me.

My Jap import is a little different, was not easy to access the amp, but was actually really easy to remove the trim and access the loom that way.

I will add that I find those splice clip things to be completely rubbish, tried them first but it was just no good. In the end, I stripped a section of wire and soldered it properly - worked first go.

Regarding the remote wire, LVT worked fine for me - but I also have an OEM boot/trunk cigarette lighter which worked perfectly too. Prefer the LVT though as it turns the amp on with the stereo as opposed to having to actually start the car.

Let us know how you get on, as I have been looking for ideas on how to install my sub/amp in the boot of my E91. I know I have the professional H/U, but doubt I have an amp for the underseat subs as the door speakers are only the 4" jobs.
