Feeler: Earthquake SWS-8XI Subwoofers and Jtsherri spacers

Just putting a feeler out for a set of Earthquake SWS-8XI (these are the newer 2 ohm versions of the SWS-8X) and a set of Jtsherri spacers.

They are literally like new – having fitted them two days ago, I decided that with these on I now have too much bass in my car (I already have a boot sub also). For me its either these or a boot sub, so I may part with these .

As mentioned they are in mint condition and have only had approx 2 hours usage in total (so have not even run in yet). They are pretty much new and I still have the original boxes, manuals, packaging e.t.c – all mint too.
I ordered these from the US and were quite expensive, especially with the customs charges.

Just gathering interest for now but would potentially sell both subs and jtsherri spacers for 285 plus 10.00 p&p - which is a pretty good price, considering you won't be hit with customs charges as already in the UK .

They are the Jtsherri spacers. I would want to sell both together as they are needed to fit the subs into the enclosures, without modifying them.

Would it be possible to fit these into a car that doesn't have subs already?

As far as i'm aware all E90's and E92's have underseat subs as standard factory fit. These are effectively replacements for them.

If you mean fitting these into another car, then yes it is possible, however i'd hazard a guess that you'd need a custom or generic 'off the shelve' subwoofer enclosure to accomodate these.

Is there any chance to come and have a listen (depending on where you are) as I would be interested but in 2 minds and would prefer to listen to the difference?

are these a straight swap or is there more to it?

Oh. My bad. I have only had mine for a week or two but I feel like it might not have them. Can you see them or do you know if there's a way to test they are working? If I can get yours in easy I would be very interested.

No worries mate. These are now provisionally sold, pending payment.

They are easy to spot - have a look at here. Download the PDF http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ighlight=sws-8

This is essentially the 'how to' and will help you spot where the stock subs are located exactly.

Definetely a worthwhile upgrade if you don't already have a boot sub.
