Does standard sound system have dash subwoofer

My Father has a W205 with the burmeister system. I believe there is a subwoofer under or behind the dash. Works well.

I was considering buying an estate which is quite a basic car. Anyone know if there is still a subwoofer there? If not, anyone added it?

You might want to talk to an audio specialist. They should be able to tell you what you have and how to get it to sound better. Shouldn't cost a cent to get their take on it.

Just my $0.2 worth

The dealer should be able to tell you if the basic system includes a subwoofer.

If you have the Audio 20 setup then the A20 system consists of (4) 4″ speakers in the doors and a single 6.5″ Frontbass subwoofer installed in an 8 enclosure located in front of the passenger footwell, all powered by the head unit manufactured by Mitsubishi.

Correct - base system does not have Front Center dash speaker - and does not have 2nd woofer - and does not have Tweeters in the front door triangles.

One "upgrade" is to add tweeters w/crossover to the triangles - to go farther than that (and you can go far) usually requires a plug-n-play add-on amp (like Fischer Match) - and then using upgraded digital amp to push upgraded speakers.
