Becker Grand Prix 7992
Currently looking at upgrading my standard CD player (single DIN) in my 8L A3, and this one's taken my fancy from reading a few things on here and just wondering if anyone has this Head Unit in their 8L A3 and what do they think of it? - few questions also:
# does it fit in perfectly? (i.e. no need for spacers/new fascias)
# will changing the head unit be sufficient enough for better sound, or will i need new speakers aswell
cheers for any replies
It'll give you a slight improvement from the front speakers, but you may find the rears are quieter (as they run off a seperate amp, which is only 2 x 20w) this will also effect the sub (as it runs off the rear pre-outs).
Any upgrade really needs new front comps and a sub (especially the sub).
claudefrog off the site has the grand prix in his 8L s3
i will be putting one into my 8P along with upgraded speakers and sub
its a cracking head unit with the built in bluetooth for the phone and it provides great SQ for the speakers and most importantly, it looks OEM!
nice one, thanks guys - any recommendations on front speakers/components + sub then? wasn't looking at a big sub, because i need my boot space, heh
im going for a focal set up - going for kp2's
quite expensive but focal do entry level speakers for decent money aswell
diamond are good make too and would work well with the becker
for amps ive bought genesis but again, quite expensive lol
and a diamond sub
