sound E36

what would be the best enclosure for a E36?
i have a 12" svc kenwood 1200W (400W RMS) running off a 2400W mono block, im currently using a bandpass box.
how or what would i need to do to get some better bass?

not really, in my golf mk1 im running a 800w sub, and its good enough, but im sure you will know that the boot of a BM is pretty tight, i mean i had to remove the ski panel/ door behind the back seat to get it a little better.

many have told me about the enclosure, band pass for hatch, or a ported for this and that, now i know that a band pass plays well in a hatch, but in some sedans it plays well to, obviously not a E36, this is what id like to find out, what enclosures work, and what doesn't.

The best enclosure is if ya sell all the sub stuff out, buy and slap a sportier E36 M3 muffler on the back of your bimmer and play some exhaust tone for the locals lol. No music sounds better than a BMW straight six engine at high rpm

Great! Just put the subs on the VW lol. I'm just kidding bro, I don't understand about sound systems to save my life. I'm sure someone will chime in though...
