Just purchased '98 A3 and need advise on stereo direction *newbie*
hi all, firstly wanted to say hi, I'm amazed at how much information exists in these forums. There's certainly a lot of Audi enthusiasts out there.
Just purchased a black A3 '98 model 1.8 turbo. Even though I haven't physically picked it up yet I'm already thinking of what to do with the stereo and any bit of advice is greatly appreciated.
I have an Alpine head unit, about 2 years old, plays MP3s. I have two 4 channel Alpine V8 amps, previously I had one running the fronts bridged (4 into 2) and the other was running the rears on 2 channels and the sub on the other two channels bridged. Also have an Alpine Passive EQ with time correction, etc. I have a pair of Boston splits, a pair of Infinity Kappa 3ways and a pair of oval 6x9s, not sure of the brand. Ohh and a JBL 12" sub in a box. Happy to spend my next 3-4 weekends running power cables to the boot etc. but I would like some direction from you lot that have gone down this track before and have overcome some hurdles along the way. I dont want to spend any more money on the stereo unless I absolutelly have to. This kit has rocked before in other cars, probably would be overkill in a little A3.
Can't wait to get it, I should be picking it up tomorrow!
