Question Anyone know how to install a Bazooka subwoofer to a 5 Series ? - November 3, 2017, 01:31 PM

So I have a 5 series and I love the car and I am happy with the stock sounds system it comes with except I want some more bass. Nothing to fancy or crazy just want to add a simple bazooka to it but seems like its not as simple to do with a bmw! Anyone have a setup like this on a 5 series?

I've had Best Buy in Sterling charge less than I thought it would cost installing a basic amp and sub.

It's really hard to add on just a woofer to high end cars unfortunately. It requires more money than it's worth to make it work right and sound good.

Today's aftermarket 6x9's throw out both crisp highs and a surprising amount of clean bass. It won't rattle your teeth, but it's high quality punch for not much money and since they fire inside the cabin versus traveling through the rear seat, you don't need as much speaker and wattage.

They're usually easy to drop into the rear parcel deck with a little cutting. Wire in a small amp to give them some more juice if your OEM amp and headunit set-up can't produce enough wattage to drive them.


But, you can see if a BassPro from JBL fits your needs. Basically a bluetooth, portable sub.

Looks like the JBL BassPro Go never made production, its not listed on their website. But the cost was also set to be $600, so that would remove/price them out of the potential market place anyway.

Its been almost two decades since I installed a SAS Bazooka, not sure if anything has changed, but their amped bazookas SUCKED. The amp was 100% crap. A 8" SAS bazooka will provide what you are looking for, for sure.

Ah, okay. I remember hearing about it as CES last year. Sad because it seemed like a solid way to have both a little more in car punch and then a tailgating / picnic / beach speaker to take with you.

Nothing wrong with 6x9's. Perfectly acceptable range for people who don't want to spend $$$ on discreet speakers, popping new holes all over panels and door cards for drop-ins.

A 6" or 8" mid/woofer is far superior than 6x9.

That depends on what your overall goal is, what you already have in the car by way of speakers, and how much overall space you have to play with.

Free airing 6" isn't going to do much. 8" maybe, the real (boom) doesn't happen until you get into the 10" range.

I know real audiophiles will frown at 6x9's but these are also the guys looking to build up a system and not just add a little more robustness and round out a tinny sounding system.
