Audio Noob: Just want to install ONE 12" sub

I have an E90 325i... and some extra bass wouldn't help... My idea?

Install 1 12" subwoofer into the trunk.. 120 bucks at Futureshop or wherever...

Can I install this as a quick plug/play sub feeding off my stock CD player amp?

Or am I going to have to invest hundreds more to get more bass??

Thanks guys

I can wire in a sub tapped into your oem system, if all the stock audio equipment is in the trunk like the older BMW's. Keeping everything stock, you will need a amp to drive the sub, did it to my M5 tapped into the dsp system sounds nice.

All you need is

A) a subwoofer with enclosure
B) an amp with line level inputs. (If it doesn't have crossovers, you can buy an external crossover)

Easily done under 150$.

lol alpine amp, alpine sub, bassworks enclosure. lookin at probably 500 bucks to find the shit new, maybe less. Can find it used cheaper Im sure. If you can buy a stereo for under 150 bucks, its not very good. expect to pay 150 bucks just for a decent sub.
