    Does anyone know would it be possible to fit the HK Center subwoofer compartment to my standard setup in my M??
    All I would need is the speaker compartment as I could run the speaker from my amp..

    Think it be possible??

    I wouldn't bother, I have the HK sub, and it's not very good, you would be better off going for a custom job.

    I have a slimsub also known as underseat sub behind my passenger seat which works very well. Its a 10 inch 1000 watt but the actual box it sits in is only slightly bigger than the actual sub & is only 3 inches deep, the amp is also built in

    go for a custom sub and don't bother with the HK one. I'll have to dig out the HK speakers and take a pic for you sometime, they are a joke really, rattling more than pushing any air around ;)

    I think I may change the system in the car, I took my Triumph out the garage tonight, put road tax on it and went for it's first run of the year

    and i put on some music, the sound system blew the system in the Z out the water.

    i had forgotten how good it was.

    might do the same system to the Z.

    I have JVC head unit ( probably fit a better one to the Z, i have a set of JL Audio tr525-cxi coaxials speakers, Alpine SWD1600., full dynamat xtreme sound deadening.

    What a sound
