    Help! Installing sub/amp in my S3!

    I am about to install a subwoofer in the boot of my S3, does anyone know if there are any special tricks regarding the removal of the underdash, the kick panel and the black trim (door sill) above the carpet??

    Thanks in advance for any help!!

    Be fascinated to see this - was it difficult? (scale of 1 to 10!)

    To be honest, if you ever had installed some audio equipment in any car, it is quiet easy. You need to get a + wire from the battery to the boot, and then the signal wire is taken from the BOSE sub in the side of the boot. I chose to leave the bose sub connected together with the basslink, which I crossed-over very low to give it only the lowest frequencies.

    In my opinion, it sounds quite good, since now I have the bass in 0 in the head unit so the rest of the speakers sound quite clear due to the lower bass level. It is no SPL king but I grew tired of that, I did not want to tear the car apart.

    This is how it looks (I made a new floor in MDF, I did not want to drill the OEM one which is quite soft)







    This is how the wiring looks, I covered all of it in black tubing. I installed the remote bass level in the lower part of the dash (above the dead pedal). I did not drill any holes at all.





    If you have any doubts, you can PM me! Everything is quite simple to dissassemble.
