Depends on how much space you want to give up. I have 2 12 DVQs in ~5 cuft @ 19Hz each for home theatre and am using a 12VQ in ~3cuft @~22Hz in the car all with mid-inserts.

Ported is awesome! But then again they should work really well is small sealed enclosures as well.

which pole insert (or none installed) are you using, and/or have? it's adjustable for different enclosures.

I'd go ported in the E46, the extra output is needed.

Work out how much space you have, then let us know which insert you have/plan to use and I can model for you.

Used to run 2x Diamond Audio D6 in a ported enclosure in the wheel well of an E46, worked well

Trunk opening is 40" X 17".

Trunk width (inside) at it's greatest distance is 50", and at its smallest is 30" (because it tapers, rear to forward).

Trunk depth is 37".

Trunk height is 17".

I've decided not to use whell, i have a lot of work
