Granted this was when I was much more into car audio so our new 2006 is pretty plain back in the cargo area. Less the spare (come on we have roadside!!!), my old setup didn;t take up ANY cargo space yet provided ample volume for two 12'' subs and electronics. It wasn't a very "high-end" system but it was good gear properly installed and tuned and sounded great.

Good luck with yours!

PS - My plan for our new 2006 3.0 is too simply add a single 10 or 12 in a small sealed enclosure that is easily removed from the X when we need to pack her up tight for tailgating or travel. Pull two speaker wires off and the sub box comes right out!
I couldn't lose the use of my spare tire well. I roadtrip the X5 constantly, so the spare comes in and out based on if I'm in town or going out of town. I considered remaking the entire right side into an enclosure and having it sit flush w/ the sliding tray (which you don't have, and something I honestly don't even use), but that's something maybe further down the road when my current setup just isn't enough anymore.
