New 2000 S3 Owner - Major SQ Upgrade Planned / some questions
First post. Bought a 2000 plate S3 yesterday - a bit disappointed with the interior engine noise and of course the fairly standard radio sucks.
So looking at the following - the biggest 'challenge' I have is speakers.
So I am planning to use the following kit, currently planning on a 2 way active system:-
Headunit - Pioneer P99RS or P80 - undecided at the moment, of course the P99RS is a lot nicer but costs a lot more too - I dont expect to be going 3 way, so the P99RS is not 'needed'.
Amp - DLS A7
Speakers - this is the issue - what fits - I can fabricate some baffles - I have a CNC machine, 3D printers and a few tools - so not too difficult. Currently considering Ausidon Voce K5, Rainbow (which ones?), Morel Tempo 5, CDT Eurosport HD 52.
Any suggestions from anyone? I like my sound to be warm and full - I dont like harsh sounding systems - Focal might be a bit bright for my liking.
Sub - undecided - Morel 12, JL 10 or 12 W3 / 6 or similar.
Any thoughts on how to further reduce engine noise at cruising speeds - 80/90 etc -I do a lot of motorway miles, I know the S3 wont be an A8 but its a bit louder than hoped.
Thanks in advance. Does Andy Mac still use the forums - he comes up as being active last in June 2013.
