I have started the ICE install on my 2005 A3 8P and here are some progress pics, doing all the work myself.
Starting pics original Bose 6 channel Amp Don't laugh too much :-
Original Bose Sub in its plastic box :-
Original Bose Rear Full range speaker :-
Rear 7" Subs that will run IB :-
Audi sound deadning installed in between the inner and outer rear panel :-
Front Tweeter Install :-
Front Mids (yes I will be adding some more deadning at a later point) :-
Cable route for the Mid into the Doors (a right PITA) :-
The Head Unit is in :-
The temporary speaker cable so that I can at least have sounds in the car off of the Head Units internal amp :-
And last of all the bundle of cables waiting for the amp rack build :-
The kit list is :-
Alpine DVA-9861Ri IPod Full Speed
Alpine PXA-H600 Processor (linked Optically and AI-Net from the HU)
Alpine PDX-4 150 (Running the Focals Bi-Amped)
Alpine PDX-1 1000 (Running the subs)
Focal Utopia Componants (Series 1 but with TN-52 Tweeters)
Elemental Designs 7KV.2 subs (Dual 2Ohm versions).
I now have loads of bruises and cuts on my hands and so far the only trim casuality is a couple of clips on the footrest.
I recond that I have probably a couple of days work left to build the amp rack. I will also eventually (when I get a cable through) use the centre speaker for my car kit.
It is a very solidly built car though.
