    Boom boom

    Just finishing off my latest addition to the audi, a nice twin 10" install. Coming together very nicely. Planning to remove the bose amp and run a slightly higher power/better quality amp, alongside this build. Your thoughts? Will upload a pic soon

    EDIT: Picture

    Not consider building it into the side of the boot?

    Ditto. i've given up with getting OEM similar carpet, the one ive used is just sticky back felt from wilkinsons, same stuff kids use to cover their school books only a tenner too (needed 2 rolls)

    Not sure about the front, will see how it goes. hoping to have it all in an working by tonight :D

    Didnt want to install it in the side as i use that space for other things, but im only losing 3-400mm of boot space on the floor :D

    Looking good dude.
    You'll have that in and working before foxy has even bought the carpet.

    Are the back of the boxes angled to fit the back of seats?
    any protection over the speakers front?

    I really need to get my ass in gear and build my install.

    Wouldnt count on it Scott. Just found the amps faulty, keeps popping the fuse on the side... Looks internal.

    But no protection, tbh not much goes in the boot, and if it's sharp it goes into the backseats lol. Box is flat back by the way...

    "You snooze you lose" an all that! Just seeing if its salvageable, can never have too many amps! lol

    Dont think i could ever part with ma V12, first proper amp i saved up for and bought, and its had a well easy life, probably only used 3-4yrs of the 10 ive had it for!

    Haha true foxy. I'd love one amp per channel (x6) but that ain't gonna happen. Missus says the bass gets too much as is. Though I am on the lookout for a decent compact 4ch amp to ditch out the Bose/Nokia amp... :D

    Nice install! Do your seats fold down? Have an a4 without folding seats, just a metal wall, so not to sure if it's worth putting a sub in the boot as will the sound just stay in the boot? What d'you reckon?

    Cheers. Just Do what I've done and take out the two shelf speakers. Sounds loads better. And no mine don't fold either oh and go for a sealed box (not ported) if you want some kick

    Fair enough may have to look into getting an install then! Are you still running the original head unit? I've got the concert stereo did change it to an aftermarket unit briefly but didn't think it looked right.

    Just modded my other audio gear. Temporarily connected the aftermarket HU to the speakers directly (had to run l/r in series to keep the impendance right).

    downside... No fader. Never mind lol sounds a lot better. Now to hunt a 4ch amp down
